Batgirl

In the DC comics, Batgirl is the female counterpart to Batman. Her true identity is Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham’s police commissioner James Gordon. Much like Batman, she fights crime using a combination of martial arts, her wits, and an arsenal of high-tech gadgets.

Katana

In Suicide Squad, Katana (Karen Fukuhara), whose real name is Tatsu Yamashiro, is an expert martial artist and swordswoman. She wields the mystical Soultaker blade, capable of trapping the souls of its victims.

Power Girl

In the DC Comics, Power Girl (real name Kara Zor-L) is the cousin of Superman and shares similar superpowers. Like him, she was sent away to escape the destruction of Krypton, but somehow ended up on a planet called Earth-Two instead.

Red Hood

In Batman, Red Hood is the alter ego of Jason Todd, who takes controls of multiple gangs in Gotham and cleanse the city of violent crime in his own way. He comes to blows against Batman and other superheroes who believe he goes too far, but he mounts a PR campaign to appeal to the public, which includes adopting a more traditional superhero costume.

Deadshot

In the DC Comics universe, Deadshot (Will Smith) is the alter ego of Floyd Lawson, a supervillain turned antihero. He’s a member of the Suicide Squad, valued as the world’s deadliest marksman, though Hawkeye might object to that.

Captain Boomerang

George “Digger” Harkness is a slimy, ugly scumbag who commits crimes by throwing boomerangs…which makes him perfect for the team of misfits and lowlife’s officially known as Task Force X, more commonly known by it’s nickname, “The Suicide Squad”. He may seem like nothing more than a common bank robber who throws toys around, but he has managed to be a match for The Flash and has proven his worth among the likes of lethal assassin Deadshot, the insane Harley Quinn and the monstrous Killer Shark in the Suicide Squad.

Joker in Suicide Squad

In Suicide Squad, Jared Leto puts his spin on The Joker, though it will be tough to top Heath Ledger’s rendition of the maniacal character. This time, the Joker shows more street style with a set of grills and plenty of ink.

Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad

In Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn is the same crazed psychiatrist turned supervillain, but Margot Robbie’s is different from the usual take on Harleen Quinzel. One that’s less court jester and more of a deranged, bloodthirsty baseball player.

The Flash

When it comes to speedy superheroes, Quicksilver I, Quicksilver II, or Dash from the Incredibles may be the first to come to mind nowadays. But with his own television show premiering in 2014 and a movie planned for 2018, The Flash is back to remind you that he’s the original speedster.

Green Arrow

In Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is Green Arrow, a billionaire playboy who dons a costume and fights crime. Sounds a lot like another guy we know. No surprise that his weapon of choice is the bow and arrow.
