It feels good to be bad… The much-anticipated Suicide Squad with its star-studded cast including Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie (“The Legend of Tarzan”), is set for cinema release on August 5.

Following a team of the world’s most dangerous Super Villains armed with a powerful arsenal of weapons on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity, the Suicide Squad promises to be a massive hit.

Suicide Squad

This group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose is interesting to say the least. Here are a few things you might not have known about the Suicide Squad members.

Amanda Waller makes bad things happen to bad people. She puts the infamous Suicide Squad together in order to attempt an impossible mission and decides everyone is expendable when serving the greater good.

As the best Tier One Shooter to come out of the armed forces, Colonel Rick Flag is a military man through and through. Ever suspicious of homegrown cannon Deadshot, Flag is in charge of keeping the Suicide Squad in line.

Possibly the best marksman in the world Deadshot – aka Floyd Lawton –is a stone cold pro that trusts no one and works alone. His only soft spot is his daughter Zoe whom Waller and Flag exploit in order to get the precision gunman to join their dangerous mission.

As crazy as she is desirable, Harley Quinn –aka Dr. Harleen Quinzel – views life as one big, chaotic joke. She’s a beautiful young psychiatrist who treats the criminally insane patients at Arkham Asylum including The Joker, until he turns the tables on her that is…

Devious, scheming and ruthless, Captain Boomerang irritates the other squad members with his wisecracking attitude and short fuse. He’s rarely without his trademark weapons – an assortment of razor sharp, incendiary and electrically charged boomerangs.

With a skull tattooed onto his face, this one-time gang member can create and manipulate fire to his advantage. Haunted by the misdeeds of his past, if Diablo allows his temper to flare there’s no telling how much destruction he might cause.

Evolution seems to be working backwards for Killer Croc. His square jaw, cracked, scaly skin and toothy grin evoke the most fearsome of reptiles, but it’s his skill at surviving and maneuvering in dark, dank, filthy sewers that makes him a deadly foe.

Possessed by Enchantress – a wickedly beautiful witch as old as time itself – June Moone struggles to hold on to her humanity while being overpowered by the seductress. As long as Amanda Waller, literally, holds her heart June remains a servant to both women, and the siren remains at the whim of her captor until she can rise to reclaim all that she has lost.

A true master of knots, Slipknot uses elaborate ropes and tackle to create unbreakable and impenetrable traps. He is a trained assassin who can climb just about anything.

Dressed in Samurai-inspired, street-fighter garb and an intimidating facemask, Katana is a force to be reckoned with. Wielding the Soultaker (a large Samurai sword that traps the souls of all its victims) she is both a member of the Suicide Squad and an associate of Colonel Rick Flag helping to keep the others in line.

Violent and incredibly dangerous The Joker is not only Batman’s greatest enemy, but also the love of Harley Quinn’s life. As Arkham Asylum’s most infamous resident he revels in every single moment of the chaos he creates and truly lives up to his unpredictable reputation.
