Meet the villains of the Suicide Squad

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.
