The Ten Strangest Members of the Suicide Squad

What makes Suicide Squad the most versatile series in the entire DC library?

Javelin

Gunter Braun, commonly known as Javelin, is blond, brawny and exceedingly handsome (especially if you ask him). Javelin is the most classically attired member of the Suicide Squad, wearing a form-flattering tights-and-mask suit of blue and yellow that shows all of his muscles to their advantage while—as his name suggests—proudly swinging his weapon of choice: a very impressive, very powerful projectile.

Savant

Operating under the name Savant and an expert in weapons and hand-to-hand combat, Brian Durlin is muscular with a shock of long, straight white hair. Even more shocking are the many scars that cross-hatch his body. Like most prisoners called to join the Squad, he'd really rather not—but he'll do anything to get out of the utter boredom of Belle Reve prison.

Weasel

Retrieved from solitary confinement for a position on the Suicide Squad, furry, cross-eyed Weasel looks more like a werewolf...or an Afghan Hound. His weaselly ways give him great agility in combat, but don't hire him to babysit your kids.

Mongal

Daughter of the ruler of Warworld, Mongul the Elder, Mongal is a malevolent, muscular alien with orange skin who doesn't play well with others.

There are over a dozen super-villains, antiheroes and outright psychopaths at the core of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, the new DC blockbuster hitting

T.D.K.

Cory Pitzner, who goes by the mysterious acronym T.D.K., is broad-shouldered and attired in a teal, black and yellow suit and cowl. However, despite his traditional super-villain-like appearance, precisely what his super-villainous powers are is as much a mystery to his fellow Squad members as his full name.

Blackguard

A brute in black armor, Richard Hertz regularly employed his super strength to wield an energy mace and shield as Blackguard...before he was caught and thrown into Belle Reve prison, where Amanda Waller recruited him for the Suicide Squad.

Ratcatcher

A spell in Blackgate prison turned rat exterminator Otis Flannegan into a hardened criminal. After his release, he declared war on the citizens of Gotham City and became the sewer-dwelling villain known as the Ratcatcher, using deadly poisonous gases and leading an army of sewer rats.

Think Again: Amanda Waller's Strange Obsession with the Thinker

There comes a point in even the greatest leader’s career where they have to admit they made a mistake. The moment when what seemed like a perfectly good plan at the time has become an unmitigated disaster and it’s time to scrap it.
