SECRET ORIGINS (1986) (#1-50) (DC) #14 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Secret Origins #14
Featuring the Suicide Squad, written by John Ostrander and drawn by Luke McDonnell. Never before in the annals of heroism have a more motley crew of criminals and malcontents served the greater good with such bravery. In modern times, the Suicide Squad (a.k.a. Task Force X) consists of super-villains with no other reason to live than to shorten their prison sentences in service of the government. But the squad's origins go back to the days of World War II when servicemen, with no powers or gimmicks, such muscle and guts and a mean streak a mile long would take on super-tough menaces regular forces couldn't tackle; like man-eating dinosaurs!

Witness the origins of the Squad as recounted by Amanda Waller and Sarge Steel to President Ronald Reagan. See how Captain Richard Montgomery Flag made an oath to his men never to give up and to keep fighting for those left behind. In the depths of the Allies' struggle against Axis powers, Flag's task is to turn criminals in uniform into heroes any way he can. And after the war, Flag continued Task Force X's mission taking on incredible menaces, like Yeti in the snows of the Himalayas. See also how a life of poverty and loss forged the iron will of the woman the Suicide Squad came to know as "The Wall!"
