“Arrow” Season 2 will introduce the Suicide Squad in an episode of the same name. Made up of criminals and a few A.R.G.U.S. members as chaperones, the Suicide Squad takes on dangerous missions in a complicated world.
Who, exactly, is on this elite team? Keep reading.
Amanda Waller (Cynthia Addai-Robinson)
The head of A.R.G.U.S. is also the founder and leader of the Squad. She’s technically not a criminal, even if Diggle often gets mad at her.
John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson)
Oliver Queen’s partner in stopping crime has to work with criminals now? Needless to say, he isn’t going to like it much. Lyla is a little more open-minded about the concept.
Ben Turner, aka Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White)
The fighter-for-hire with the knives on his knuckles, Bronze Tiger may have been the first recruited by Amanda Waller.
Mark Scheffer, aka Shrapnel (Sean Maher)
First seen earlier in Season 2, Shrapnel likes bombs and doesn’t like the government. That’s going to make for an interesting combination on the Suicide Squad.
Floyd Lawton, aka Deadshot (Michael Rowe)
Yes, Diggle’s arch-nemesis, the assassin known as Deadshot, is on the team. Lawton is good at his job, although it will be interesting to see the interaction between Diggle and the man who killed his brother.
The “Suicide Squad” episode of “Arrow” airs Wednesday, March 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
