After the overthrow of the Ocean Master due to the Justice League, Amanda Waller is deploying Deamshot Team Count Vertigo and the Punch and Jewelee criminals to recover a hard drive with important Tobias Whale information. The mission is successful, but Vertigo and Jewelee betray the team and kill Punch. After becoming lovers in jail, they plan to make a copy of that hardwood and sell it.
Only Waller heard this plan through the Deadshot communication device. Waller sets his head bomb implanted with Vertigo, and Deadshot kills Jewelee. In the city of Gotham, Professor Pyg is abducted by Scandal Savage and Knockout for a “patient in need of medical care”. Waller later discovers that he is affected by a terminal disease and re-establishes the X-Intervention Team with new members.
Their new mission is to find a man named Steel Maxum and recover a mystical black card that says “Get Out of Hell Free.” Finding Maxum in a club, the team fights with Professor Zoom, Silver Banshee and Blockbuster. They manage to capture him and find out he was Doctor Fate. He then explains that the card allows the user to go through Hell and get directly into Heaven, but it can only be used once. Scandal and Knockout stole the card from the Sorrow Tower, and because of this Maxum lost his title.
