Deadshot

An assassin, expert marksman and lethal DC Universe villain, Floyd Lawton lives by a simple code: do the job that you're hired for with the least amount of casualties possible—after all, you're not being paid to waste bullets.

Part of Gotham City's long line of rogues, Deadshot is obsessed with precision, firmly believing that the target who’s been paid for should be the only one taken down. In the midst of a successful career, Lawton was taken down by the Dark Knight and sentenced to life in prison for the countless assassinations he committed. However, a man of Lawton's skills earns a reputation.

Given a chance to earn his freedom, Deadshot joined the Suicide Squad—a team of villains recruited by Amanda Waller to carry out covert (and highly illegal) missions. Often the de facto leader of the team, Deadshot always aims to complete the mission at hand... even if it kills him.

Along with his ability to "never miss" his target, Deadshot possesses an unfulfilled death wish. He cares less about earning his freedom than he does about dying in a spectacular fashion. His reasons for this are unknown—many speculating family upbringing, loss of a loved one or simply not having anything left to live for. However, this complete disregard for his own life, along with his commitment to the job, make Deadshot one of the most dangerous assassins in the world.

DC Voices: An Interview with Keto Shimizu

It’s a good time to be a DC Comics reader. But it’s also a great time to introduce new readers to DC Comics. Not only have some of our most popular heroes been reinvented in exciting, fresh new ways, but the creative voices behind some of those comics are evolving. Like you, we’re huge fans of Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, Geoff Johns and all of the other talented writers and artists with whom we’ve been working for years. But we also have some amazing new writers and artists currently making waves on their titles, and we’ve become big fans of them as well.
