Rick Flagg and Rick Cannon were agents supreme during times when their homeland was at war. Using covert means and unorthodox methods, the two Ricks soon catapulted onto the scene when superheroes were their only peers. Flagg founded the Suicide Squad, while Cannon became associated with the All-Star Squadorn, two teams designed to combat the Cold War and World War II on Earths One and Two, respectively.
They were joined on their missions by blonde bombshells in Karin Grace and Libby Lawrence, although Karin's doppleganger on Earth-Two was the famed Doctor Pat who like Karin was part physician part adventurer. Libby's cosmic twin on Earth-One was fellos journalist Lola Barrett. Karin and Pat had several tales with potential love interests Jess Bright and Hank Lee during their brief heroic careers.
