Belle Reve Correctional.

Belle Reve Correctional was an American prison.


Amanda Waller used inmates from Belle Reve for her Task Force X. She sent Rick Flagg to offer Deadshot a position in the group. Faced with death otherwise, Deadshot complied.

After the Watchtower's Binary Fusion Generator was taken over and fired, the founding members of the Justice League, except Batman, turned themselves in at Belle Reve.

Background information

In the comics, Belle Reve is a metahuman prison in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. Waller recruits her Suicide Squad members there. The name is derived from a Mississippi plantation of the same name in Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire.

In the DCAU, the location of Belle Reve is never revealed. Louisiana does not use the gas chamber as a means of execution, though this discrepancy can be ascribed to a Californian writer (similar to Superman: The Animated Series, "The Late Mr. Kent").
