Well it has been confirmed that the Suicide Squad team will be appearing on Arrow this season
“Arrow” executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg confirmed that the Suicide Squad will be featured in the 16th episode of “Arrow” Season 2; which will also be called “Suicide Squad.” The episode will bring back Audrey Marie Anderson as A.R.G.U.S. Agent Lyla Michaels and focus on John Diggle (David Ramsey); whom Lyla compels to work with the Suicide Squad.
“[Lyla] saddles [Diggle] with the Suicide Squad,” explained Kreisberg. “Including Floyd Lawton (Michael Rowe).” Lawton is better known to comic fans as Deadshot, an assassin for hire. In “Arrow,” Lawton killed Diggle’s brother and he was last seen earlier in the second season after Diggle reluctantly helped him escape from a Russian prison.
This incarnation of DC’s Suicide Squad was created in 1987 by John Ostrander. The central idea is that several supervillains are offered the chance at getting a reduced sentence if they agree to take part in dangerous missions which they may not survive.
The incarnation of the team they are talking about is made up of Block Buster, Bronze Tiger, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot and Enchantress. They first appeared in DC Legends #3 .
DC Legends #3 1st Modern Suicide Squad goes for between .99 cents and $3 on eBay.
