* IconicSequelCharacter: Almost every major character from the third incarnation of Suicide Squad, such as Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and the Bronze Tiger, as well as the team's boss Amanda Waller, did not appear in the lineup until its ReTool in 1987, over two and half decades since the team first appeared in 1959. Harley Quinn didn't join until the 2011 New 52 series (and thanks to the film is now the group's best-known character). Colonel Rick Flag, Jr. was the only major character involved from the very beginning.

The head of the Suicide Squad was a character almost unique in super-hero comics, Amanda Waller. She was a middle-aged, full-figured black woman who'd clawed her way out of poverty to become a well-respected political operative. Ms. Waller was also a rare female MagnificentBastard who would stop at nothing to act in the interests of the United States as she saw them. (Later appearances in other series have tended to leave off the "magnificent" part.)

The first '''''Suicide Squad''''' printed was a try-out feature in ''ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold'', starting in #25 (August-September, 1959) and appearing on and off up to #39 (December, 1961-January, 1962). They were a quartet of non-powered adventurers who fought monstrous menaces, as was common in the [[TheFifties 1950s]]. Despite the name, none of them actually died in the original stories.
