Bloodsport

Robert DuBois, known as Bloodsport to any hero or villain unfortunate enough to cross his path, is a world-class marksman specializing in brutality—his hands, and anything he wields with them, are deadly weapons. Trained by his mercenary father from the moment he was born, this hardened criminal has but one soft spot...which, of course, Amanda Waller uses to persuade (ie. blackmail) him to join the Suicide Squad.
