I always said Checkmate was the only one that worked. ARGUS is a new thing created for new 52 that's been crammed down our throats and up our asses showing the new Waller everywhere.
SHADE is forgotten. And I seem to remember them coming up in Palmiotti's Freedom Fighters book...not focused on paranormal threats. Just another pointless rebadging.
Dunno about where DEO is these days.
