Chato was at some point a criminal who met the previous El Diablo while in the hospital.
The DC Universe heavily changed its continuity into the DCnU following the events of Flashpoint in 2011. This was part of an effort to make storylines more accessible to newer readers, beginning with the New 52. This new timeline combines elements from the DCU, Vertigo Universe and Wildstorm Universe while drastically changing the origins and histories of characters.
Following changes to the Timestream, El Diablo was, at some point, captured by Amanda Waller and forced to join the Suicide Squad. While attempting to collect on a debt owed by some local gang members, he had set fire to their building, and killed everyone inside. When he realized that there were innocent women and children who he had killed in the blaze, he went with the police quietly. While on death row at Belle Reve prison, his cell filled up with gas and he was implanted with a micro-bomb to insure his obedience. After undergoing torture to test his loyalty, El Diablo was officially inducted into the Suicide Squad.
