History

The Gulf nation of Qurac held a strong anti-US policy and was a major sponsor of terrorism directed against the West. Qurac was the home base for the meta-human terrorist group the Jihad until their base was destroyed by the Suicide Squad.

Angry over terrorist attacks against Metropolis, Superman destroyed much of Qurac's military capability.[1] Qurac's president Marlo was eventually kidnapped by western special forces and brought to the U.S. to stand trial.

The small country suffered its greatest disaster when the terrorist Cheshire detonated a stolen Russian nuclear missile over the country. She wanted to show she was willing to use the weapons she had stolen, but chose a country she knew the world powers cared little for.[2] Because of the radiation, aid workers have had difficulty getting help to the survivors.

Notes

  • It is obvious that Qurac is meant to stand in for the real-world country Iraq and the physical resemblance of Marlo to Iraq's former leader Saddam Hussein is just as obvious.
