Among them only seven have survived from the immense tortures and training as part of the initiation program. The surviving members are Harley Quinn, Deadshot, El Diablo, King Shark, Black Spider, Voltaic and Savant. When thought of going on their first field mission they are tested again to ensure their loyalty and only one of them broke during this process.

All of the members of Suicide Squad are planted with micro-bomb implants to guarantee their obedience for the cause and Amanda Waller is in full-charge to command the team. With Deadshot as the primary leader of the band, the team is sent out for their first mission to get a package from the middle of a stadium filled with infectious crazed crowd.

One of them is killed to cover their tracks and two new members; Captain Boomerang and Yo-Yo join the group. They fights a secret terrorist organization called Basilisk and afterwards, Harley Quinn manages an escape, leaving a massive prison-break on her way. When the Crime Syndicate (during Forever Evil) took over Belle Reve, Waller assembles a New Squad to take control over the escalated situation.
