Letters Column: Suicide Squad

The story opens with an attack by unknown assailants on an airport. Their target is an airplane containing the President of the United States. We learn that the attack was a training session for a group called Jihad. We are then introduced to the current Suicide Squad… Rick Flagg, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Enchantress, Captain Boomerang, Plastique, Mindboggler and several support personnel. After a briefing they leave on a mission to preemptively strike at this Jihad group at the Jihad’s own headquarters.
