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.
