As a country mourns the loss of their leader, Roosevelt believes that the assassin is part of a bigger conspiracy, one whose tentacles reach back to Europe and whose intentions are to destroy humanity through world- wide ANARCHY.To stop them, Roosevelt must convince Harry Houdini, Jack Johnson, Thomas Edison and a surprisingly very alive Annie Oakley to band together again. But time has strained the bonds that once united them and the ideologies of their enemies may have already seeped into one of their own. Welcome to ROUGH RIDERS: RIDERS ON THE STORM.
They're a team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on missions so dangerous – they're sheer suicide! Harley Quinn! Deadshot! King Shark!

Executive Order 13526, issued on December 29, 2009, intended to increase government transparency and regain trust with U.S. Citizens. It led, in turn, to the creation of the National Declassification Center, a sub-section of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). Suddenly, thousands of top-secret files were declassified and made available to the public. One such file confirmed the validity of a long-thought tale that Theodore Roosevelt had created a momentous team of the greatest citizens of his time—which he named the "ROUGH RIDERS"—to fight for America in its darkest hour. Not only was the tale true, but the dossier also exposed that the Rough Riders did not end with Roosevelt but rather were continued throughout history by his daughter Alice, who, like her father, called upon America's greatest to band together in its most desperate time of need. If you choose to accept, take a look inside this file and see those who have had the honor to be called a ROUGH RIDER. If you decline, these confidential files will self-destruct.
