A former Batman villain and a founding member of the Suicide Squad, Floyd Lawton is the ultimate killer for hire.
One of the deadliest assassins in the DC Universe, Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot, has no real superhuman abilities, unless you count his uncannily accurate aim and affection for firearms of all types. Boasting that he never misses a shot, Lawton became infamous as a deadly marksman and gun-for-hire, a reputation that earned him no shortage of trouble with both the law and the superhero community.
During one of his prison stays, Lawton was recruited by Amanda Waller to join the covert Task Force X, otherwise known as the Suicide Squad, in exchange for a reduced prison sentence. A thrill-seeker with a self-destructive personality, Lawton readily accepted the terms and went on to become one of the Squad’s longest-serving members.
Though he’s violent, dangerously unbalanced and murderous, Lawton has, over time, shown a capacity for good. He is fiercely loyal to his semi-estranged daughter, Zoe, whom he tries to support with the earnings from his missions and criminal endeavors.
