Joseph Waller was the husband of Amanda Waller (née Blake) and the father of her children: Joseph Jr., Damita, Martin, Jesse and Coretta. He and Amanda lived in the Cabrini-Green public housing in Chicago. Joseph and Amanda were married when Joseph was 20 and Amanda was 18. Joseph's eldest child Joseph Jr. was killed by two thugs trying to rob him. Six months later, Joseph's eldest daughter Damita was raped and murdered by a criminal known as Candyman. Joseph tracked Candyman down and both were killed in the gunfight. Joseph's widow Amanda vowed that she would get the rest of her children out Cabrini-Green and was able to put her three youngest children and herself through college. Eventually, Amanda would go on to create the Suicide Squad.
His sons Martin and Jesse are twins.
