My DC: Checkmate September 23, 2011

Posted by vorpalkeith in Uncategorized.

Checkmate is the government organization that monitors and polices metahuman activity. They are clandestine and ruthless in how they do business. They have existed since the late 1940s and were in part responsible for getting the Justice Society of America shut down in the early 1950s. They classified the adventures of the Challengers of the Unknown.

There is currently a factionalization within the organization. Loyalties are being decided between two senior directors: Maxwell Lord and Amanda Waller.

Each of them has their own covert team that they send out on missions. Maxwell Lord has a group known as the Doom Patrol under his jurisdiction. Amanda Waller has a group of supervillains fighting for their pardons known as the Suicide Squad.

The irony is that Max Lord is nefarious, and leads gives orders to a squad of good guys. While Waller, though not being good, certainly isn’t evil; commands a group of villains.
