With a new threat on the horizon, Amanda Waller puts her team of expendable heroes and villains together once more. When Clifford DeVoe, better known as the Thinker, a man with technologically derived telekinesis and mind control, begins an attempt to take control of the U.S. government, the President orders Amanda Waller to reform Task Force X in order to stop DeVoe. While keeping three members of the original team on board for the DeVoe mission, Waller recruits four new Belle Reeve prisoners to join the Suicide Squad. Rick Flagg, Jr., army veteran and the team's leader, Task Force X is sent on yet another suicide mission.
Amanda Waller is shown to be in a deep sleep, but her eyes snap open when a series of alarms go off. She rushes to Belle Reeve to find a prison riot. With the help of ARGUS personnel, the riot is subdued. Waller goes to the security cameras to find they were somehow disabled. After making sure the members of Task Force X are all still incarcerated, Waller goes to one of the only Belle Reeve prisoners she trusts; Captain Atom. Atom comments how he "wanted to go on the DeVoe mission", but is glad he didn't die like Nemesis did during the first film, and how Shade did in this film. Waller asks what Atom saw, and he reveals that Wade Eilling came in and caused the riot in order to distract Waller. He explains Eilling let everyone out but him, but he saw what he did; he came in, disabled the cameras, started the riot, took "the serum", and left. Waller's eyes widen as she calls Flagg, telling him what Eilling has done.
