MEET THE SUI­CIDE SQUAD

The rogues and repro­bates be­hind DC’s vil­lain­ous spin-off

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - 2016 Preview Essential Films - by Jor­dan Far­ley

SLIP KNOT ADAM BEACH

An ex­pert with ropes, which sounds like the worst su­per­power of all time but proves sur­pris­ingly use­ful when ab­seil­ing down build­ings or sus­pend­ing perps from ceil­ings.

CAP­TAIN BOOMERANG JAI COURT­NEY

the joker of the group (not lit­er­ally), Boomerang has a util­ity belt full of wacky boomerang-based gad­gets, like drones, blades and ex­plo­sives. nice coat too.

KATANA KAREN FUKUHARA

rick Flag’s badass body­guard could be the group’s dead­li­est mem­ber. Her sword soul­taker doesn’t just cut through bone like but­ter, but steals the soul of ev­ery­one it kills.

RICK FLAG JOEL KIN­NA­MAN

With squad squab­bles all but in­evitable, Amanda Waller’s top mil­i­tary man rick Flag is charged with babysit­ting task Force X. He’s not bad with a firearm ei­ther.

EN­CHANTRESS

CARA DELEV­INGNE

An an­cient sor­cer­ess un­leashed by tomb raider June Moone. sport­ing a goth-chic style she may seem like per­fect squad ma­te­rial, but can any­one con­trol her?

HAR­LEY QUINN

MAR­GOT ROB­BIE

the Joker’s psy­chotic squeeze has an in­sa­tiable ap­petite for de­struc­tion, earn­ing her a place on the squad. We’ll also wit­ness the fan favourite as Dr Har­leen Quinzel and hang­ing with Mis­tah J in flash­backs.

DEAD­SHOT

WILL SMITH

An as­sas­sin with a death wish and an ex­pert marks­man who never misses, Dead­shot wields his trade­mark wrist-mounted Glocks and has a thing for Har­ley.

KILLER CROC ADE­WALE AKIN­N­UOYEAG­BAJE

the squad’s most out there mem­ber isn’t the comics’ gi­ant steroidal croc­o­dile but a man with rep­til­ian skin and a taste for hu­man flesh.

DI­ABLO

JAY HER­NAN­DEZ

if the Hu­man torch joined an LA gang and got some freaky face tat­toos you’d prob­a­bly have Di­ablo. ex­pect those flame pow­ers to prove very use­ful.

Oh yeah, and there’s this fella. Bit of a Joker ap­par­ently.
