Is it really a Suicide Squad without Boomerang? Or Deadshot? At least they have a Firestorm villain...
From 1998, Chase #2, "Letdowns" Plot and script by D. Curtis Johnson, pencils and plot by J. H. Williams III, inks by Mick Gray. The titular agent Cameron Chase is the one looking unthrilled to be there. She was an up-and-comer in the Department of Extranormal Operations, with an as-yet unknown superpower. Her early successes have put her on the radar of Amanda Waller, who gives her a new assignment: take the Suicide Squad to Peru to destroy the artificial intelligence (and occasional JLA villain) the Construct.
Bolt, Copperhead, or Sledge were never core members of the Squad; but Killer Frost would turn up on the team a few times. She would appear in the animated movie Batman: Assault on Arkham with the Squad as well.
I think this may have been reprinted in the DC Comics Presents collection for this series, and I have to dig it up to see what happened the next issue.
