Aliases: Richard Flag Jr., Richard Rogers Flag
First Appearance: LEGENDS #1, 1986
The son of renowned World War II hero Rick Flag, Rick Flag Jr. is just as much the courageous soldier and fierce patriot. Trained in just about every aspect of military combat, Flag was originally known for his talent as a fighter pilot.
Recruited by Amanda Waller, Flag was appointed leader of Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad. The Squad is composed of mostly DC Super-Villains, who carry out extremely dangerous missions for the United States government in exchange for reduced sentences for their crimes. Among the morally murky members of the Squad, Rick Flag is an anomaly—a tried and true hero with a genuine moral compass alone in a den of snakes. Nevertheless, Flag’s loyalty to his teammates is never in question.
