Duchess (Lashina)
  • Easy Amnesia: She suffered this upon her arrival on Earth after being shot.
  • The Mole: An accidental version. She was left for dead by her fellow Female Furies, but only suffered Easy Amnesia and was allowed into the Squad as she had no Earth records. Once the amnesia wore off, Lashina decided to betray the team in the process of returning to Apokolips.

Amanda Waller

  • Anti-Villain/Anti-Hero: Depending on the story and the writer. Her position has placed as both an ally and and antagonist to superheroes in the DC Universe, and in either case she is trying to do good but relying on extreme methods.
  • Black Boss Lady
  • Gonk: Depending on the Artist on the writer, but she is frequently depicted as overweight.
  • In-Series Nickname: "The Wall"
  • Iron Lady: You have to be commanding and have a temper when your job consists in leading a squad made entirely of villains. Even Batman knows better than to cross her lightly.
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: Her driving goal is her need to protect and strengthen the government she works for. It doesn't matter what methods she uses or what crimes the government may have committed, either before she was called in or after clearing things up: so long as they defend the USA, then it's acceptable.
  • Necessarily Evil: She knows full well that some of the things she does are wrong, but she justifies them as necessary. Through her crimes, she serves a greater purpose, the protection and advancement of the United States of America.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She is genuinely trying to work for the good of her country, but she isn't afraid to send dangerous supervillains on suicide missions to this end, and her methods are so drastic even some people in the government are shocked by it.
