French for "Beautiful Dream," Belle Reeve is a federal penitentiary located in southern Louisiana. To impend escape, the penitentiary is surrounded by endless miles of swamp land. In recent times, Belle Reeve became infamous for housing metahumans and super villains.

After Deadshot was captured following Superman's return from a Hypertime Earth, he was incarcerated at Belle Reeve. Deadshot was given the death sentence by the electric chair. However, Colonel Flagg Jr. issued a stay of execution and took custody of Deadshot. The warden reluctantly complied. Months later, Lex Luthor hijacked the Justice League Unlimited Watchtower and fired on a Cadmus facility in New Mexico. The founding circle of the League decided to turn themselves in. All but Batman did so at Belle Reeve. Once Professor Hamilton verified Luthor's betrayal to Amanda Waller, she freed the League founders and they arrived in Metropolis for a final showdown.
