Task Force X are sent to the South American island nation of Corto Maltese after the government is overthrown by an anti-American regime. Under orders from intelligence officer Amanda Waller, the squad is tasked with destroying Jötunheim, a Nazi-era laboratory that holds a secretive experiment known as "Project Starfish". A team led by Waller's subordinate Colonel Rick Flag is almost entirely wiped out by the Corto Maltese military upon landing, but this allows a second team comprising Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Nanaue, Polka-Dot Man, and Ratcatcher 2 to enter the country undetected. After finding Flag at a base camp for rebel soldiers, the squad convinces rebellion leader Sol Soria to assist them.
The squad accomplishes their next objective of capturing The Thinker, a metahuman scientist in charge of Project Starfish, while also being joined by Harley Quinn from the first team when she escapes the Corto Maltese military. Breaking into Jötunheim, most of the squad rigs the facility with explosives as Flag and Ratcatcher 2 enter the underground laboratory. Accompanied by the Thinker, they discover Project Starfish to be Starro the Conqueror, a powerful extraterrestrial capable of controlling its victims' minds. The Thinker reveals that Starro was brought to Earth by the American government, who have been secretly funding the experiments on Corto Maltese for decades.
