Team 7 is a highly classified military strike team run by John Lynch.


The team's known members were Steve Trevor, the Justice League's liaison, and Kurt Lance, the thought-to-be-murdered husband of Black Canary (Dinah Drake), and Suicide Squad leader Amanda Waller. Current roster includes mentioned above Steve Trevor and Amanda Waller, as well as Alex Fairchild, Grifter (Cole Cash), John Lynch, and Deathstroke (Slade Wilson).

Team 7 is sent on a mission to enter a floating prison fortress. The team concludes that 218 people, including prisoners and staff have been compromised. The team finds footage from a closed circuit TV. The footage shows Dr. Alex Montez, a research fellow at Arkham Asylum. Montez injects subject John Akara, a terrorist who was defeated by Team 7 in an earlier mission, with a liquified black diamond. The black diamond takes subject Akara, who beats up Montez and takes him hostage. The team delves deeper into the prison where Akara is hiding. The eclipsed Akara is easily holding his own against Team 7 until Montez uses a strong uv flashlight that he fires behind Akara, that takes away the eclipsed parts of Akara and the other rampaging individuals.

The formerly eclipsed are unconscious and while the team sorts through the bodies they learn the prison was not heading toward Gamorra, but Sentinel Island. Montez has been taken over by Eclipso, but shows no signs. Montez tells the team there is a prison of the heart of the dead and Eclipso is God's vengeance.

Team 7 arrives at Sentinel Island, where the team goes down a ravine and scales a mountainous outcropping. They find slain villager's and mercs when they arrive. Essence reveals herself to Slade and later the team when he chooses not to help her. Gamorra's men are all killed and the last man is killed by Slade when they arrive at The Heart of Hell.

The Heart of Hell is a barren area where The Black Diamond is housed. The Black Diamond sits upon a pedastalsurrounded by pointed, jagged rocks. The base is surrounded by lava with stone steps that someone must jump onto and across to arrive at the diamond. Slade grabs onto the diamond, a large, square cut version, and is quickly controlled by Eclipso. Essence gives Team 7 an ancient sword that drives Eclipso from Wilson when he stabbed through his body by it. Eclipso begins his escape from the the wounded Slade and his etheral form is shot back into the stone which is later placed in The Black Room by ARGUS.
