Comic fans lost their collective mind upon the reveal of DC FanDome's trailers for upcoming games and movies. Although Rocksteady announced Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League a few weeks before, the hype cranked up to 11 once fans saw the teaser.
The banter is spot-on, the visuals are exquisite, and the premise is... bonkers. Getting the chance to play as the most entertaining DC villains to take down the Justice League after Brainiac turned them into psychotic killers is going to be exactly as insane as it sounds.
At the moment, four playable characters have been revealed: Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang, and Harley Quinn. Because of the epic scale of the threat, it's safe to assume Amanda Waller will utilise many more agents in her task force that have yet to be revealed.
When we look at potential members to include, we can't just look at cool powers or the character's popularity. Since Rocksteady focus on story and character development, which supervillains would best serve the plot? Which characters would have the wittiest banter or the most entertaining chemistry? With a release date in 2022, all we can do until we hear another announcement is speculate.
