Zalika src

Born in the Korogoro Slums in Kenya, Zalika was forced to work for a gang before her powers developed. Her brother was punished for stealing from the gang and subsequently died. Soon after, she was put to work with the gang's stolen electronics when her powers developed, which she used to trap her captors inside a mobile phone and had them be killed by a computer virus.

She began to hack more and more places of worth until a Russian named Karla trapped her. She remained there until Suicide Squad arrived on a mission and she proved useful enough to them to be rescued. She soon became part of Task Force X.

Hack worked with the Squad on a couple of missions, including helping a sane Harley Quinn defeat an insane Zod before a power cut in Belle Reve turned off all security including everyones brain bombs which resulted in everyone escaping. Zalika stuck with Harley at first, receiving a pep talk from the villain which caused her to return to the prison only to be killed by Captain Boomerang.

after awhile leftover code managed to manifest itself into Hack via Belle Reves cloud, this now allowing her to access every aspect of the prisons files, but she was assumed defeated by cybernetic hero, The Wall, when in fact she downloaded her code into his suit and mind. now in control of a body again, Zalika took to Washington D.C. and took control of the minds of everyone within, including the president. holding the state hostage, Hack demanded nobody enter otherwise she would kill everyone, but allowed the exception of the Suicide Squad who she had now just outed to the world, this however was a ruse to allow her access to the Pentagon to get information on Amanda Waller who`s daughter was in labor currently. once again using The Wall to get elsewhere, Hack now traveled to the hospital Waller and her family were in. holding her family hostage, Zalika presented Amanda with a choice; out the Suicide Squad to the world or have her family killed. ultimately Waller chose to save her family and told Hack to out the Suicide Squad but to Wallers luck and surprise, Hack didn`t, or couldn`t upload the files before she ran out of battery inside the cyborgs body, finally dying again.
