(Suicide Squad I #1, 2) - Mindboggler joined the Suicide Squad; if she could help destroy Quarac's terrorist organization Jihad her sentence would be commuted to time served. After a mission debriefing she witnessed two of her teammates having a confrontation; Captain Boomerang harassing Plastique, so she used her illusion casting powers to frighten Boomerang and make him back off. The Squad successfully dismantled the Jihad, but while Mindboggler was holding off Quarac soldiers, allowing the Squad to flee Jihad hq, Jihad member Rustam snuck up behind her with a gun. Boomerang was the only other Squad member present, and he could have warned her of the imminent attack, but he was still bitter about Mindboggler embarrassing him in front of the Squad, so he watched on as she was gunned down and killed.
