Our very own Rebecca Alburn has provided us with this leaked communique to US Government Official Amanda Waller concerning The Suicide Squad. The document breaks down the new and returning members of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
RE: The Suicide Squad
TO: Amanda Waller (Viola Davis)
You asked for the details of the squad members – I’ve pulled up as much as the GCPD will allow without setting off Brother Eye. I’ll expect my payment in the usual place.
Long Time Inmates:
Doctor Harleen Anne Quinzel / Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)
Dangers: Enhanced Agility, Toxin Immunity, Genius Intellect.
Disposition: A psychiatrist corrupted by The Joker. Convinced of the rule of Anarchy.
Modus Operandi: Wild fighting style, mood shifting. Suspected Stockholm Syndrome.
Captured by: Batman
Captain Boomerang (Jai Cortney)
Dangers: Lethal Thrown Weapons
Disposition: Violent Thug, Australian Patriot.
Modus Operandi: Nasty piece of work. Man you send to hurt someone instead of kill them.
Captured by: The Flash
Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman)
Dangers: Firearms, Military Tactics
Disposition: Like all the Rick Flags, he’s a military gun nut.
Modus Operandi: Fear of losing anyone, yet perverse death wish.
Peace Maker (John Cena)
Disposition: Extremist. Bully. Likes a high body count.
Bloodsport (Idris Elba)
Dangers: Firearms, Gadgets
Disposition: Brother went to ‘Nam instead of him. Wants to bring the fear of ‘Nam to the US.
Modus Operandi: Robert Dubois took kryptonite bullets to Superman. No off switch.
T.D.K. (Nathan Fillon)
GCPD has nothing on this guy. Lexcorp has nothing on this guy. I tried acronyms but the only one I found was for… The Detachable Kid. If this is who I think it is, Suicide might be best for him.
Solsoria (Alice Bragia) / Tyla (Storm Reid) / Mongal (MayLing Ng)
Some of the soldiers that was brought in under Flag’s control. There’s rumours that Tyla is Bloodsport’s daughter, so that may be leverage over him. Mongal is supposed to be some Alien warlord.
Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian)
Dangers: Weaponised Dots (yeah, I have a hard time taking GCPD seriously at times)
Disposition: Crazy Gotham Villain called Abner Krill. Low time thug with special powers.
Modus Operandi: Coward that can pull magic stuff out of his dots. Plan B machine.
Blackguard (Pete Davidson) AKA Dick Hertz
Dangers: Energy Constructs (Think Green Lantern), Supersuit
Disposition: Goes up against Booster Gold, so be sure to look out for any Time weapons he’s stowed away.
Modus Operandi: Friends with Guy Gardner. That should tell you all you need to know.
Savant (Michael Rooker)
Dangers: Genius Level Intellect, Amnesia
Disposition: Laser sharp focus when he remembers what he’s doing.
Modus Operandi: Has been one of the few to work out how Oracle works. Keep him front but keep him protected – and watch his chemical balance.
King Shark(Steve Agee)
Dangers: He’s a shark with arms and legs
Disposition: Nasty, Tough as Solomon Grundy, Sadistic
Modus Operandi: This is your muscle. Keep him fed and fighting and he’ll do you well.
Weasel (Sean Gunn)
Disposition: Where Shark is the muscle, Weasel is the trap detector. Throw them both in the room and clear up the remains.
Modus Operandi: Don’t trust him. Just use him.
The Thinker (Peter Capaldi)
Dangers: Genius Level Intellect. Files erased from GCPD.
Disposition: More than smart. Rivalling Brainiac. No-one actually knows what he can do with that gizmo, but he’s probably got telepathy and telekinesis in there.
Modus Operandi: Keep him safe and he’ll do you good. He knows his days are numbered.
Ratcatcher II (Daniela Melchior)
Dangers: Vermin Control
Disposition: If she’s anything like her Father, it’s a Bioterrorist. Haven’t enough info on her yet.
Modus Operandi: Watch for problems between her and Weasel.
Javelin (Flula Borg)
Dangers: Thrown weapons and that awful costume
Disposition: Olympic athlete who turned bad. Shallow as his spears.
Modus Operandi: Brings a spear to a gunfight. Either brilliant or cannon fodder.
That’s it now. No more favors.
