"You want to put our national security in the hands of witches, gang-bangers, and crocodiles?!"
―Admiral Olsen to Amanda Waller[src]

Admiral Mackenzie Olsen is a high-ranking officer in the United States Navy, and an adamant opposer of Amanda Waller's pitch for Task Force X.

Olsen, Dexter, and Waller discuss the fallout of Superman's death.

Relatively shortly after Superman's death, Admiral Olsen and Dexter Tolliver meet with ARGUS Director Amanda Waller, to discuss her Task Force X proposition. Waller proceeds to gives them a detailed description of all of her unwilling candidates - Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo, Rick Flag, and the Enchantress. Ultimately, however, Olsen objects to the proposition, appalled at the idea of Waller entrusting homeland security to "witches, gang-bangers, crocodiles, and the Joker's girlfriend." Waller, however, remains adamant, and intends to present her idea at the Pentagon, and Dexter is more supportive of her idea.

more to be added


Admiral Olsen, as a member of the US Armed Forces, is quite patriotically dedicated to his job and country, with a great deal of posthumous respect and admiration for Superman, whom he views as a national hero, with Olsen even reprimanding Amanda Waller for looking cheerful in light of Superman's recent death. He doesn't care for Waller's amoral methods, however, since he, unlike his associate Dexter Tolliver, expresses dismay as her Task Force X proposition.
