The nano-bomb detonators are detonators for the Van Criss Laboratories nano-bombs that were implanted within the necks of the Suicide Squad members.


Rick Flag and Amanda Waller used the detonators to ensure the compliance of the Squad (apart from Katana, the only willing member) and blow off the heads of any of them if they would disobey them or try to escape. One of them was Slipknot, who was murdered by the nano-bomb for an attempt to escape.

Rick Flag eventually destroyed his detonator, but Waller managed to retain hers and used it to force the Squad back to their Belle Reve supermax cells after the defeat of Enchantress and Incubus.[1]
