Here is another very early request. I never read much of the first incarnation of the Suicide Squad, but I was a big fan of John Ostrander's series in the 80's which featured a group of DCU super-villains blackmailed into performing covert operations for the government. It's a great concept that allows the writer to explore the shades of grey in his characters personalities. Great comics like Thunderbolts and Incognito have taken the idea and explored as well, but Ostrander latched on to it first. The Suicide Squad is currently showing up in the current season of Smallville - Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Plastique and Deadshot have already made appearances.
