An Aussie marksman with an unmatched talent for his namesake weapon, Captain Boomerang has enjoyed two careers—as the Flash's enemy and a member of the Suicide Squad.
It’s not uncommon for super-villains to have self-explanatory names, but Captain Boomerang might take the cake. A master of boomerangs and boomerang-based fighting, Digger Harkness began his career promoting toy boomerangs. After he immigrated from Australia to the United States, his life took a sharp left turn into villainy when he decided to use his skills to steal jewels. He developed a line of weaponized boomerangs, terrorizing Central City until he ran afoul of the Flash. But in lieu of serving out his entire sentence, he was offered a position on the Suicide Squad.
With the Squad, Digger now works alongside some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. But if he sometimes finds his teammates’ metahuman abilities intimidating, he never lets it get the better of him. Digger’s skill with a boomerang is exceeded only by his total self-interest in any given situation.
