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.

** When Ramban is asked by Waller to provide a distraction, he starts chanting ''[[ComicBook/DoctorStrange "By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth!"]]'' He even states he stole the line from a comic.

The Suicide Squad made an appearance on ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' under its original name of Task Force X, as the word "suicide" was considered off limits for the young audience (Though Superman calls Batman's plan to kamikaze the space station into the doom machine "suicide"). Therein the team consisted of [[Creator/AdamBaldwin Rick Flagg]], Deadshot, Plastique, Captain Boomerang, and Clock King, working under the purview of Amanda Waller.

The Squad also appeared during the tenth season of ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' (with a lineup of Rick Flag, Deadshot, Plastique, and Warp), and the second season of ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' (with a lineup of John Diggle, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Shrapnel). [[Film/SuicideSquad A movie]] is also in development as part of the Film/DCCinematicUniverse, which features a team consisting of Deadshot (Will Smith), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), and the Joker (Jared Leto).

''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'' is a Suicide Squad movie in all but name, with Batman only making limited appearances. As the name implies, overlaps with the VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries of video games.

* ExactWords: Deadshot had a problem with this, as seen above. Since these events, Deadshot has continued to abide by his ''very'' exact word, a trait that has continued into SecretSix. Everybody who works with him is rather irritated to observe their own orders thrown back at them with such flippancy.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Several series have, since the book's cancellation, been heavily inspired by ''Suicide Squad''. ''{{Thunderbolts}}'' (especially post-Civil War) and ''SecretSix'' exist mainly because of the popularity of ''Suicide Squad''.

* BecauseImJonesy: Captain Boomerang once posed as Australian arms dealer Billy Tidewater. His ruse was uncovered because the group he tries to deal with is already holding the real Billy Tidewater hostage. Boomerang made a valiant attempt to claim that he and Tidewater were cousins, and their fathers thought it would be funny to give their sons the same name.

The modern version debuted in ''Legends'' #3 (January, 1987). In that CrisisCrossover event, {{Darkseid}} had manipulated events such that superheroes were unable to operate in public. So when the nuclear menace Brimstone appeared, the job of stopping it was handed over to Task Force X, a secret government agency dedicated to handling paranormal menaces that had languished since the beginning of the modern superhero boom. The agency deployed their newly created "Suicide Squad" team, which succeeded in destroying Brimstone, at the cost of the first Blockbuster's life.
