Below is a guide to each Suicide Squad character.
There’s a lot to the characters that we didn’t see in the movie.
Bring out your buckled hats and and pitchforks, there’s a new witch in town: Enchantress – and she’s as crazy as she is powerful. Wielding unimaginable magical powers, there’s no end to the damage she can doll out, and nothing to stop her from possessing anything she touches.
The feared escape artist. The man with a plan at all times, no matter the situation. Slipknot isn’t afraid to leave you hanging by your neck, or tied up and left for dead. With little more than a coil of his homemade, unbreakable rope, and the dedication of a well-payed mercenary, he will prove to be a deadly cog in the machine of the suicide squad.
The sewers aren’t just the wastebasket of a bustling metropolis, sometimes they’re the breeding ground for something much viler. Scarred from a birth defect and tired of ridicule, Killer Croc turns his attention from being a circus freak to a life of diabolical crime as a mobster with an affinity for back-breaking and neck-snapping. His hardened scales and razor sharp claws and teeth make him a feared foe for those who stand in his way.
More than just a hired gun and more than just a good shot. Introducing the best marksman ever to live, Deadshot. The suicide squad member who wants to die, but can’t turn the pistol on himself. His past is littered with despair, from accidentally shooting his own brother, to divorce, and then lengthy jail time following a failed attempt to rule Gotham’s underbelly. Can he keep his hothead and burning barrels on the squad’s mission? Or will his own motives get in the way of the job?
The Devil himself. After being hospitalised by a bullet wound in a police shoot-out, Chato Santana came into contact with the original El Diablo, now a comatose Lazarus Lane. The demon spirit that once possessed Lane, giving him his pyrokinetic ability, is transferred. Now, Chato Santana takes on his new form as a fire manipulating criminal, ready to join the newly formed suicide squad.
There’s nothing deadlier than a femme fatale armed with an ancient and mystical Katana. Her weapon, the soultaker, used to kill her own husband, tears the souls of her victims as it takes the life from their bodies. Since training to become a Samurai, Katana has become as deadly with her fists as she is with her sword, making her one of the most feared close-combat warriors of the suicide squad.
The blunder from down under. Born and raised in Kurrumburra, Australia, Captain Boomerang is no stranger to a bit of rough and tumble. His larrikin demeanour makes him one of the louder members of the suicide squad, who isn’t afraid to voice an unpopular view or two. His weapons are his namesake. Armed with powerful and specialised boomerangs, you won’t know what’s hit you until it’s too late.
The head honcho, the man behind the steering wheel. Rick Flagg may just be the sanest person in this squad; a true leader, a G-man through and through. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to roll up his sleeves and get down in the mud. Rick Flagg is no stranger to suicide missions either. During his time as a fighter jet pilot he took on more than his fair share of damned missions, and now he’s back to lead his most daring yet.
Ever found yourself so deep in the mind of a twisted criminal that you begin to become them? Harley Quinn has, with none other than The Joker himself. People say their love is the most twisted in Gotham city. For years she has helped the Joker escape his shackles at Arkam, bending over backwards for her muse. And now, armed with a baseball bat and a bad attitude, I’m sure she’ll be on the prowl to rekindle their dastardly romance.
The Clown Prince of Crime, Mr J., The Ace of Knaves. The most disastrous villain of them all; the yin to Batman’s yang. Little is known about The Joker’s origin, or what lead him to bear his trademark grin, but one thing is for sure: no one is more of a menace to Gotham; no one is more of a threat to Batman. Dressed to the nines in his purple suit, with his Emerald green hair slicked back and sporting a fancy new ride, it seems like The Joker has a new lease on life. And guess what? He’s coming for yours.
