Deadshot

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.

Ares

He's worn many faces and borne many names, but throughout history, Ares, the Greek God of war, has possessed a limitless hunger for destruction.

Deathstroke

Slade Wilson is a mercenary and assassin for hire with no qualms about crossing lines to get the job done, no matter where those lines are drawn.

A formidable operative for the U.S. military, Col. Slade Wilson agreed to undergo an experimental process that increased his mental and physical abilities to superhuman levels. Rather than continue his career as a soldier, Slade became the masked mercenary Deathstroke. This decision resulted in his wife leaving him and his son Joseph being permanently injured, as well as the death of his son Grant, who sought to emulate Slade.

Cassandra Cain

Trained from birth as the ultimate killing machine, Cassandra Cain found a new life as the fourth Batgirl and, eventually, Orphan, a cherished part of the Batman family.

No one in the Batman Family had an easy childhood, but Cassandra Cain may have had the worst. Raised from infancy under the tyrannical and abusive thumb of her father, the world-class assassin David Cain, Cassandra was taught violence before she was taught anything else—even how to speak.

Big Barda

Some follow a philosophy of speaking softly and carrying a big stick. Big Barda does not. Instead, she lives up to her name with her awe-inspiring height and power as well as the impact she leaves on her enemies.

Black Mask

The sadistic Roman Sionis only cares about two things: hurting people, and total control of Gotham City’s criminal underworld. If he can use one to accomplish the other, then all the better.

Rick Flag

Resourcefulness. Intuitiveness. Bravery. Skill in combat. All these qualities are useful assets for a soldier, and Rick Flag has them in spades. His exemplary military record put him on Amanda Waller’s radar, and she drafted him to lead the Suicide Squad, much like his father, Rick Flag Sr., did before him. The younger Rick accepted the new role, but he wasn’t exactly thrilled about the gig.

Arsenal

Formerly known as Speedy, the Green Arrow's sidekick, bowman Roy Harper fights a host of evils, including those that live inside him.

Adopted by a Navajo shaman named Brave Bow, orphan Roy Harper spent his early teens learning survival skills and becoming a crack archer. He learned so quickly, he eventually earned the nickname “Speedy.” Making his way to Seattle, Roy served as costumed sidekick and mechanical engineer to millionaire Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. In addition to battling alongside the Emerald Archer, Roy was a founding member of the Teen Titans.

Lobo

For the men and women who earn their keep capturing intergalactic criminals and wrongdoers, life throughout the universe is cheap. But that doesn’t mean there’s not good money to be made in the taking of it, and when it comes to killing, there are few better than Lobo—the most brutally effective bounty hunter in the galaxy.

Two-Face

Cities can be hard, crowded places full of people with different interests, backgrounds and points of view. Voices go unheard and attempts to make a difference often feel pointless. Unless we’re talking about Gotham, in which trying to do good isn’t just fruitless—it’s dangerous.
