If there’s one thing superhero fandom can agree on, it’s that Suicide Squad looks ridiculously cool. The only problem is that unless you’re deep into DC Comics, some of these characters are a little obscure. We all know Harley Quinn, but Killer Croc? Not so much.
Suicide Squad is a weird choice for most-hyped comic book movie of the year, to say the least. Fans seem more excited about Harley Quinn than about the entirety of Batman v Superman. No one can decide whether Jared Leto’s Joker is disastrously laughable or an unexpected masterpiece. And Will Smith is co-starring in a surprisingly low-profile role as a character best known for being overshadowed by Deadpool.
To keep track of this cast of awesome but decidedly C-list DC supervillains, we’ve put together a series of trading cards detailing their basic character history and superpowers.
