Suicide Squad The world premiere of the Suicide Squad will take place in August, 2016, and as we all know, this is one of those movies which has it all: world famous actors, sexy ladies, bullets a plenty, bad guys, good guys, and of course, comic book characters based on a popular franchise.

The Origin of The Suicide Squad

In today's fairly grey climate superheroes can’t always solve every problem they face. Sometimes the world requires extreme measures and another kind of savior: villains, who will serve the government in high risk operations.

In the DC Universe the Suicide Squad is also known as Task Force X. It's first incarnation saw print in the pages of The Brave and the Bold #25, circa 1959, where as it's second incarnation turned up in 1987 during the Legends cross-over event, issue 3 to be more precise.

Legends 3The contemporary Suicide Squad is an anti hero team of villains who act as expandable assets for the US government, operating under the supervision of a government agent named Amanda “The Wall” Waller. The teams main weakness is their inability to work together, but apart from that, hey, good job, BANG-BANG-BANG!

Reading the comics or watching the movie will give you an adrenaline rush, similar to the feeling you can get from gambling online in the best casinos. The best baccarat tips and recommendations on how to win are available for everyone interested in acquiring a new experience.

But anyway, enough of my gambling plug, The Suicide Squad movie has gathered together the greatest Hollywood stars, including the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and Ben Affleck.

The Squad Members

The most notorious members of the squad are: Deadshot, portrayed by Will Smith in the movie, who's an assassin and a pretty decent marksman. Next there's that wild and unpredictable minx, Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie, who isn't originally a comic book character, but hey, who cares? To me, it's impossible to imagine this protégé of the Joker not in the Squad. Captain Boomerang is another member of the team, a member who can make boomerangs into a lethal weapon. Rick Flag, on the other hand, is an elite soldier and the only member who is not a villain. Completely unlike the Enchantress, played by Cara Delevingne, who's a powerful witch with a split personality.

Suicide Squad
Amanda Waller, also known as the Director of the Advanced Research Group, is the nice -- Ha! -- lady that creates Task Force X, with the intent of using them to preserve peace in a world of unorganized superheroes. Coldblooded and acting without emotions she herself can sometimes come across as a member of her own squad. She made her first appearance in Legends #3.

Deadshot is a popular Batman villain with combat skills as well as being an expert in weaponry. He made his first appearance in Batman #59, circa 1950, and is one of the most notorious and dangerous assassins in the world, made famous when he was taken down by his pointy-eared nemesis and sentenced to life in prison where he was approached by Waller.

On the opposite end of the spectrum there's a character like Katana, who became a vigilante hero after the death of her husband. She is great at martial arts and very knowledgeable in the supernatural. She made her first appearance in 1983's The Brave and the Bold #200, opposite Batman and the Outsiders.
