Dinosaurs have long been an irresistible draw to children of a certain age. But what's cooler than a dinosaur? A giant dinosaur. A giant dinosaur battling a handful of brave soldiers? Even better.
The 1960s were a tumultuous and stressful time. During that era, the original Suicide Squad--Rick Flag and his team of regular guys (and one woman)--stood between monsters and mankind. Their stories flourished during an era of social upheaval, when there was always a reader for a story in which someone small and brave could succeed against the big scary monster.
