The world is a dangerous place, and sometimes you need heroes who are equally dangerous. When a specific threat needs to be dealt with and the Justice League is just too large to tackle it, the United Nations needs a special task force—the Justice League Task Force! Led by Hannibal Martin, a United Nations ambassador and strategist, and handpicked by their field leader, the Martian Manhunter, the Justice League Task Force is charged with dealing with specific threats that the U.N. would prefer just disappear. Be it disposing of misguided freedom fighters and their sonic death weapon or protecting the United States from the bioengineered plague of the Aryan Nation, the Justice League Task Force is ready for action! Writer David Michelinie (Action Comics), artist Sal Velluto (Black Panther) and others introduce the world to a new, edgier Justice League in the classic tales from JUSTICE LEAGUE TASK FORCE VOL. 1: The Purification Plague.
