A.R.G.U.S. Director Amanda Waller meets with Dexter Tolliver and Admiral Olsen at Cicada's a few months after The Death of Superman. She again proposes her Task Force X Proejct to them, reiterating that with no Superman to protect America against Metahumans now is the time to initiate her project. She proceeds to reveal the backstories of the villains she wishes to use for Task Force X, much to the distaste of Olsen.
After the Battle of Midway City, Waller secretly meets with Bruce Wayne at Cicada's where she offers him information on various Metahumans from A.R.G.U.S. files in exchange for his help in clearing up the mess made in Midway City and keeping her name clean. Wayne tells her to shut down her Task Force X project, and that he and his friends will do it for her.
