Amanda Waller (DC)

Normal human powers.

Normal human weaknesses.

A victim of urban violence, Amanda Waller escaped the Cabrini-Green Housing Projects in Chicago, IL following the deaths of her two oldest children and husband. She then came into contact with a therapist Simon La Grieve who helped her come to terms with her anger and grief.

Becoming an activist of sorts, Amanda Waller was quickly recognized by the US Government and gained employment as a Congressional aide, then became a metahuman liaison. During her time as a Congressional aide, Amanda Waller learned of Task Force X and the plans to reform the Suicide Squad. Amanda Waller was then installed as the head of Task Force X in the hopes that she would be easy to control by higher Government officials. Amanda Waller was also instrumental in the formation of Checkmate.

Amanda Waller served as Secretary of Metahuman Affairs under President Lex Luthor.
