Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is Rocksteady's next game featuring a group of DC's greatest villains joining and hunting down the Justice League under the command of Amanda Waller. After our first look at the game at DC Fandome 2020, we have a better idea of who we'll be able to play in the game, at least at launch. Each character has a specific set of skills suited to their combat and traversal abilities in the open world of Metropolis. Here are all the characters we know (playable and non-playable) in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
Note: The game is set in the Arkham universe, so Joker will be dead, and it's unknown at this time if Bruce Wayne will appear at all.
Harley Quinn is front and center as part of the Suicide Squad and is one of four playable characters. She wields her baseball bat as usual and appears to be voiced by Tara Strong again. In the reveal trailer, she is seen swinging through the city with a grappling hook gun that appears to act differently from Batman's in the Arkham games.
Harley Quinn is one of Batman's most well-known villains, making her debut in the 1990s show Batman: The Animated Series. She is featured in the two Suicide Squad films, the Birds of Prey film, her animation and is usually shown right next to the Joker. However, she has recently had more opportunities on her own.
Captain Boomerang, one of Flash's greatest villains, is also playable. From what we've seen from the trailer, he rushes wherever he throws his special boomerangs and carries a pistol. We think the boomerang will be how you reach higher places quickly.
Captain Boomerang appears in both Suicide Squad films, The CW's Arrowverse, and various animated films. He debuted in The Flash #117 in December 1960.
Deadshot is the man who never misses a shot. As you can imagine from his past iterations, he'll be equipped with a small arsenal of firearms, including a rifle and wrist-mounted weapons, but we also see him flying around with a jetpack in the trailer.
Deadshot was portrayed by Will Smith in the first Suicide Squad film and appeared in Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Injustice: Gods Among Us. His debut came in Batman #59, June 1950.
King Shark is a demigod humanoid shark and rightful ruler of the seas. Being such a prominent ocean character could hint at an Aquaman appearance. Being such a large character, it looks like King Shark will be the least mobile of the four playable characters, although we do see him jumping from afar and doing a pounding on the ground in the trailer, and he'll be wielding a Gatling gun.
King Shark also appears in The Suicide Squad, the upcoming film directed by James Gunn, and you can find him in the animated show Harley Quinn. His full debut came in Superboy #9, November 1994.
We knew Superman was already in the game, but we first saw him in the reveal trailer. He rescues a pilot from a crashing helicopter only to disintegrate him with his laser eyes, giving us the impression he's mind-controlled. It is called alpha target.
Superman has been on DC posters since his debut in Action Comics #1, in April 1938.
While we haven't seen Brainiac in person yet, his ship is on full display at the start and end of the trailer, and his minions are the ones the Suicide Squad tears apart. There might be a chance he brainwashed Superman and the other members of the Justice League.
Brainiac is the main villain of Injustice 2 and has appeared in numerous DC animations and shows as a prominent Superman villain. He debuted in Action Comics #242 in July 1958.
Amanda Waller is the one who forces the Suicide Squad to do their bidding by implanting explosives in each member's head. We haven't seen her in person yet, but we hear her giving Harley commands in the trailer.
Waller appears in both Suicide Squad films, The CW's Arrowverse, and various animations and video games, including Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: The Enemy Within. She debuted in Legends #1, November 1986.
