Akando is the avatar of the Red.

He was recruited by Amanda Waller for Task Force XL. One of his missions with the team was to capture Damage. The team failed, and Akando was rendered comatose.


  • Animal Mimicry: Akando has the power to mimic the abilities of any animal he knows. This ability apparently gives him intuitive understanding of the animals and what abilities they have that may be useful in the situation.
