Avec la mort de Superman, Amanda Waller, qui dirige le programme ARGUS, craint l'apparition du prochain méta-humain qui pourrait attaquer l'humanité. Pour prévenir cette possibilité, elle fait adopter le projet Task Force X (Force Spéciale X), visant à utiliser une équipe de criminels aux capacités hors-normes pour répondre aux menaces, de façon non officielle. Elle a déjà plusieurs noms sur sa liste, comme le tireur d'élite Floyd Lawton / « Deadshot », capturé par Batman en lui rappelant la vie qu'il fait mener à sa fille Zoe ; la psychopathe Harley Quinn, psychologue tombée sous le charme du Joker, arrêtée par Batman alors qu'elle était coincée dans une voiture qui coulait dans une rivière ; le tueur monstrueux Waylon Jones, surnommé « Killer Croc » ; Digger Harkness, un voleur australien capturé par Flash alors qu'il dérobait des diamants ; et El Diablo, un gangster mexicain doué de pyrotechnie qui s'est rendu lui-même après avoir involontairement brûlé sa femme et ses enfants. Elle a déjà recruté le Colonel Rick Flag, soldat émérite. Quand Amanda présente le projet au Général Edwards, elle lui montre aussi les pouvoirs de l'Enchanteresse, un être mystique qui habite dans le corps de l'archéologue June Moon. Amanda Waller arrive à la contrôler car elle détient le cœur de la sorcière, et elle s'est arrangée pour faire en sorte que Rick Flag et June Moon deviennent amants afin de manipuler le soldat.

In 1837, the Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant), inexpert in the ways of pirates, leads a close-knit, rag-tag group of amateur pirates who are trying to make a name for themselves on the high seas. To prove himself and his crew, the Pirate Captain enters the Pirate of the Year competition, with the winner being whoever can plunder the most. After several failed attempts to plunder mundane ships, the Pirate Captain talks with his best friend and first mate, the Pirate with a Scarf (Martin Freeman), about giving up and selling baby clothes as a living, but is convinced to try boarding the next ship they find, which happens to be the Beagle. They find no treasure but succeed in capturing Charles Darwin (David Tennant). Darwin recognizes the crew's pet Polly as the last living dodo, and implores the Pirate Captain to enter it into the Scientist of the Year competition at the Royal Society in London for a valuable prize. The Pirate Captain directs his ship to London. The Pirates disguise themselves as Girl Scouts, so that they don't get caught and executed, as Queen Victoria has a strong hatred of Pirates.

In the near future, weapons master James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston) has created a nanotech-based weapon - nanomites designed to devour metal and other materials, capable of destroying anything from tanks to cities. The nanobots can only be stopped by activating the kill switch. His company M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Syndicate) sells four warheads to NATO, and NATO troops led by American soldiers Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) are tasked with delivering the warheads. Their convoy is ambushed by the Baroness (Sienna Miller), whom Duke recognizes to be his ex-fiancee Ana Lewis. Duke and Ripcord are rescued by Scarlett (Rachel Nichols), Snake Eyes (Ray Park), Breaker (Saïd Taghmaoui) and Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). They take the warheads to The Pit, G.I. Joe's command center in Egypt, and upon arriving rendezvous with the head of the G.I. Joe Team, General Hawk (Dennis Quaid). Hawk takes command of the warheads and excuses Duke and Ripcord, only to be convinced to let them join his group, after Duke reveals that he knows the Baroness.
