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.

The story begins five days after the assault on the Abnegation faction by Erudite leader Jeanine's mind-controlled Dauntless soldiers. Dauntless leader Eric and his platoon search through the wreckage of Abnegation for a box of unknown origin that contains the symbols for each faction. They recover the box and take it to Erudite. Jeanine claims it contains data from the city's founders and the means to end the Divergence problem–the issue of individuals having the qualities of multiple factions. Only a Divergent can open the box, so she orders all Divergents hunted down and captured.

In 1795, Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Aden Young) creates a monster (Aaron Eckhart), a soulless creature patched together from corpses, and then rejects it, disgusted with what he's made. In a fit of rage, the creature kills Victor's wife Elizabeth (Virginie Le Brun) and Victor chases it to the Arctic to get revenge, but succumbs to the weather. The creature buries his creator in the Frankenstein family crypt and is then attacked by demons before being rescued by the gargoyles Ophir (Mahesh Jadu) and Keziah (Caitlin Stasey), who bring it before the gargoyle queen Leonore (Miranda Otto) and their commander Gideon (Jai Courtney). Leonore explains that they were created by the Archangel Michael to battle demons on Earth and protect humanity. They name the creature "Adam" and invite him to join them, but he declines and departs after being given heavy, baton-like weapons to protect him, as more demons will come after him. The weapons allow him to "descend" demons (destroying their bodies and trapping their souls in Hell) as they have the symbol of the Gargoyle Order carved on them.
