—Rick Flag to the remaining Task Force X members after Slipknot's death

Richard "Rick" Flag Jr. is a Colonel in the U.S. Armed Forces and later affiliated with the Government organization known as A.R.G.U.S. who was recruited by Amanda Waller, and later chosen to lead Task Force X.


Earlier Life[]

At some point in his life, Richard Flag Jr. joined the United States Armed Forces and rose to the ranks of Colonel.

Working for A.R.G.U.S.[]

As Rick progressed in the US Army, he became one of the finest Special Forces Officer's ever produced, earning numerous medals and honors. This brought him to the attention of Amanda Waller, Director of the covert government agency code named A.R.G.U.S. Flag was transferred into A.R.G.U.S.' services directly under Waller.

Following The Death of Superman, Director Waller began developing the idea of a Task Force X, a Suicide Squad of former criminals with specialist skills and Metahuman abilities to replace Superman as the protector of America.

On a mission in December 2015, Flag was tasked with hunting down Dr June Moone to be recruited into Task Force X. Tracking her to an apartment building, he encountered dead guards covered in symbols before finding Moone in the bathroom in a bath filled with black water and grass with more symbols on the walls.

Flag took Moone into A.R.G.U.S. custody where Waller assigned Flag to watch over Moone. Over the next few months, the two developed romantic feelings for each other and soon entered a relationship together.

One night in their apartment, June turned into Enchantress during her sleep so Rick pointed his gun at her and threatened to call Waller to kill her heart.

Assembling Task Force X[]


Rick Flag Jr. is a Caucasian male with a height of 6'2, with a light beard. He has a near-shaved head, standard for any personnel serving in the military. He has a well-built stature, and always seen with his trusty HK 16.




Rick Flag Jr. is a hardened man, considering he served in the military for quite some time. He seems to have a serious look on him all the time. He puts up an intimidating pose in order to make sure the Task Force X members don't get out of hand. He seems to be quite irritated by the antics of Harley Quinn, notably her quick robbery at a jewelry store.



  • Tom Hardy, who portrayed Batman villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, was initially cast as Flag, but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with The Revenant.
  • This is 2nd live action appearance of Rick Flacg
