Notes:
Together, Checkmate, the Sucide Squad, and the Captain Atom project, these three agencies represented the core of the U.S. government's superhuman espionage efforts. None of them (except maybe Captain Atom) operated in public, and none of them really knew a lot about what the others were up to. Unfortunately, the secrecy that came naturally in their line of business caught up with them, when the would-be world conqueror known as Kobra used it to his advantage. Knowing that any of the agencies might interfere with his plan to kill a large portion of the Earth's population and have himself declared ruler of the survivors, he set in motion a scheme that would use the agencies' suspicions against them, decimating their ranks and distracting them from stopping his final preparations. Of course, the heroes eventually learn who is behind everything, and they band together to stop Kobra from carrying out his scheme. Once he's captured and his weapon is secured, the President holds a briefing with the agency heads and immediately orders a reorganization of the country's superhuman operatives to ensure a little more accountability and openness.
