The John F. Ostrander Federal Building is a large commercial building located in Midway City.


The building is occupied by the United States federal government. The top levels are used as a surveillance station by ARGUS, and it was there that Amanda Waller was located at the time of Enchantress and Incubus' attack on Midway City. In order to safely evacuate herself, as well test her new project, she orders Task Force X to Midway City and secure her exit.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The location is a reference to John F. Ostrander, who instigated the modern incarnation of the Suicide Squad. Ostrander is also the creator of Barbara Gordon’s Oracle persona, which debuted in Suicide Squad #23.
