* Deadshot, a badass DeathSeeker, who (almost) [[ImprobableAimingSkills never misses with a gun]]. The EnsembleDarkhorse of the series, Deadshot got his own spin-off miniseries during the course of the book's run, as the series moved the villain into full-blown NinetiesAntiHero mode.

* Vixen, a then-former member of the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}} with animal-related powers, who joined up after drug dealers killed everyone else at a modeling shoot.
* ShadeTheChangingMan, a former fugitive from his home dimension and stranded on Earth. He did missions and tech support for the squad in exhange for help getting home. Then the Vertigo reboot happened, which meant this Shade was effectively banished to Comicbook Limbo for better or worse.
* Black Orchid, who did various espionage and rescue missions for the team. For her entire run in the series, her origin was a complete and total mystery, and was only revealed after she left the book and got her very own miniseries. Whereupon she was KilledOffForReal in the first issue and was replaced with someone completely different. Oops.
* TheAtom. No, not ''that'' Atom. Or that one. Or even the new one. No, this Atom was Adam Cray, son of Senator Micheal Cray. The same Senator Deadshot killed. He became the new Atom on the behest of the second one, Ray Palmer, as part of a plot to unviel a group of minature assasins that were gunning for him. After this, he stayed on with the Squad for a while until his untimely death, which the original Atom swore to avenge. (Which he did.)
* Poison Ivy. Yes, ''[[BatMan that]]'' Poison Ivy. Ivy was first associated with the team when she drugged Vertigo and tried to make him her own personal plaything. This didn't last long, but it did lead to Ivy sticking with the team for a while, right up until the original series came to an end.

* {{Treebuchet}}: During the TimeSkip, Waller stranded Captain Boomerang on a DesertedIsland. When she turns up to collect him a year later, Boomerang claims he doesn't need her, as he has spent the time constructing a giant boomerang that will carry him to the mainland; launched from a tree-turned-catapult. Waller calmly cuts the rope and launches the boomerang, which crashes into the ocean a few hundred metres offshore. Boomerang then agrees to join her reformed Squad.

* Briscoe&Sheeba: Briscoe was a military pilot who often provided air support for the squad in his personal helicopter, Sheeba. Sheeba was named after Briscoe's dead child and he cared for like it ''was'' his child, even sleeping in it rather than his own quarters. None of this stopped him from being a total BadAss, and he and Sheeba saved the Squad's bacon on many an occasion.

* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Doctor Light, who had suffered BadAssDecay on a level rarely seen, going from taking on the assembled Justice League, to infamously being a repeat ButtMonkey for the Teen Titans, to getting defeated by unpowered child commandos due to phobias about kids overpowering him... until he overcame his phobia by killing a kid hero on a mission, laughing about his newfound 'success'.
