Synopsis
As President Reagan's executive order goes into effect, the heroes are either forced underground when in action, or to retire, such as the Justice League. As Godfrey's speeches continue to rally an anti-hero fervor, Robin (Jason Todd) is surrounded by a frenzied mob shortly after he saves a boy, and is injured by them. Brimstone is also revived and faces the new Suicide Squad (as Task Force "X," composed of villains making deals with the govt. for their freedom), with Blockbuster as their first casualty.
