Soldier. War hero. Traitor. Captain Rick Flag was one of America’s greatest military commanders before he was banished to a secret military prison. But after years of isolation, Flag’s life changes forever when a woman called Amanda Waller offers him redemption in exchange for taking on the single most dangerous job in the entire DC Universe: keeping the Suicide Squad alive!
It looks like they're putting Rick Flag at the head of the Suicide Squad, probably to be more in line with the movie but man...this Squad could use some kind of leader. Up until now, Harley Quinn's been one of the tactical masterminds of the crew, and that's not a good look. I assume that, as a Rebirth issue, it will mainly be establishing the status quo, but for a team with as many regular personnel changes as the Suicide Squad, it's probably necessary!
