Biography[]

Retrieving leaked information[]

After the Ocean Master was defeated by the hands of the Justice League, Amanda Waller sent her personal team, Task Force X, on a mission to recover leaked information containing files on Tobias Whale, a criminal and gangster, as well as to kill Whale.

The mission succeeds, but Count Vertigo and Jewelee betray the team and kill Punch. They plan to copy the flash drive and sell it. Waller overhears everything through Deadshot's communicator, and detonates Vertigo's bomb, killing him almost instantly. Deadshot shoots Jewelee to saved one year on the dry cleaning of his suit and to keep more blood out of his already soaked hair He and Manta return to Waller, having completed their mission.

Hell to Pay[]

In Gotham City, Professor Pyg is kidnapped by Scandal Savage and Knockout for a "patient in need of medical attention". Waller discovers that she is diagnosed with a terminal illness and reassembles Task Force X with a new roster: Deadshot, Harley QuinnCaptain BoomerangKiller FrostCopperhead, and Bronze Tiger. Their mission: to find a man named Steel Maxum and retrieve a mystical black card emblazoned "Get Out of Hell Free."

Finding Maxum in a male strip club, Task Force X is interrupted by Eobard ThawneSilver Banshee, and Blockbuster, who appear to want the card for themselves. The squad escapes with Maxum and learn he was Doctor Fate. He explains that the card allows the user to bypass Hell and gain access to Heaven, but it can only be used once. Scandal Savage and Knockout stole the card from the Tower of Fate, which resulted in Maxum being stripped of his title by Nabu.

Upon finding Scandal and Knockout's apartment, the team acquires the card, but they are intercepted by Vandal Savage and his men. Savage retrieves the card but leaves the wounded Knockout to die despite Scandal's pleas. As Savage escapes, Zoom places a tracer on his ship.

Text day, Zoom's henchmen kidnap Frost at a gas station. Zoom removes Frost's bomb and convinces her to join him. Zoom lures the Squad into a trap and detonates the bomb. They manage to escape, but Tiger is heavily injured in the blast.

Scandal covertly informs Deadshot of Vandal's location, and the Squad infiltrates his lair but are captured. Savage reveals that he had Pyg surgically implant the card into his chest cavity. Zoom and his henchmen attack and remove the card from Savage's body, killing him. Zoom explains that he was killed by Batman in another timeline, but managed to stay alive by calling on the Speed Force. Frost double-crosses Zoom, killing Silver Banshee and Blockbuster and stealing the card for ransom. Copperhead fights Frost until Waller detonates his bomb and kills both of them. Captain Boomerang attempts to steal the card but is incapacitated by Zoom. Tiger battles Zoom, but Zoom slices him multiple times with a small dagger. Tiger, dying from blood loss, uses the last of his strength to cut the card from Zoom's fingers. Deadshot kills Zoom and gives the card to Tiger, who dies and ascends to Heaven. With only Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn remaining alive in his team, Deadshot gives the now-useless card to the unsuspecting Waller before leaving.

Batman Hush[]

Justice League Dark: Apokolips War[]

According to Harley, Waller died of cancer after the events of Apokolips and the current leader of the team was elected by her to be Harley Quinn. She presumably went to hell as the card was already used by Tiger.

Personality[]

Like her many other iterations, Waller is incredibly ruthless and intelligent. She is not above blackmailing and using leverage against others to obtain what she wants. Despite her small stature, the most dangerous members of Task Force X fear her due to her wit and control over their freedom as well as their lives due to the bombs she implants in them. Her intimidation tactics also keep members of Task Force X in check, with them always having to be careful in case she is watching them or listening to their conversations. Occasionally, she shows mercy and rewards members like Deadshot with reduced prison sentences and visitations as long as they complete their tasks successfully.

Aa Waller spent her life being ruthless and expending the lives of others, she started to grow more worried that her actions would lead her to hell in the afterlife. Her worries went into overdrive once she was given a terminal cancer diagnosis and felt regret for her previous actions. Instead of repenting and redeeming herself, which may have been too late at that point in her life, she decided to expend more lives in order to obtain the card for her own selfish benefit, with her blowing up Copperhead to kill Frost despite Copperhead fighting as hard as he could to get the card for her. Her actions show that she does not have remorse or sorrow over taking lives and suffering of others, but rather that she fears the consequences of her actions. The stress of her cancer diagnosis may also have made her even more ruthless. Waller also paid a price with the way she treated Deadshot through his tenure as leader of Task Force X and made many enemies throughout her life. He believed her to be too evil and unworthy of the card and instead gave the card to Bronze Tiger as an opportune moment of revenge, causing Waller's behavior to come back to haunt her and deny her only chance to go to heaven. Waller's inability to predict that her subordinate's betrayal of her was a rare misstep given how calculating she was. She also failed to predict that her team could possibly use the card for themselves if they were about to die on a mission like Bronze Tiger. Her mistreatment of Deadshot was also a mistake she did not realize would haunt her, as he gave the card to her knowing it was useless as revenge. Waller remained ruthless and cold until the end of her life even though possibly treating Deadshot with more respect and more humanely and offering him more rewards could have Deadshot return the favor of giving her a functional card.

Trivia[]

  • Waller knows she's a horrible person, hence why she wants the "Get Out of Hell Free" card.
  • Waller has cancer, hence why she wants the card.
  • Deadshot claims that Waller has got cranky since she lost weight.
    • Waller is implied to have been fat like her DCAU counterpart, but lost weight due to her illness.
  • Since she appears in Batman: Hush, it would seem like her cancer is in remission.
  • Since she's dead by the time of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War and the Get Out of Hell Free card was used up, it's very likely she was in Hell at the time.
