February 21, 2014
The CW (via CBR) has unveiled the first photo of their fully-assembled Suicide Squad from the hit series "Arrow." Set to debut in the upcoming 16th episode of the second season of "Arrow," the Suicide Squad was previously teased in an earlier episode where Amanda Waller (played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson) recruited Michael Jai White's Bronze Tiger to join the team. The rest of the members of the team will include Mark Scheffer, aka Shrapnel (Sean Maher), Floyd Lawton, aka Deadshot (Michael Rowe), and none other than Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson) and Oliver's partner John Diggle (David Ramsey).
Also known as "Task Force X," the Suicide Squad have been in DC Comics in many different forms since 1959. The team set to be featured on "Arrow" bears some resemblance to the current iteration of the team which also includes Deadshot and Amanda Waller. A few other villains that have appeared on "Arrow" have also been a part of the Suicide Squad in the source material including Clock King and Count Vertigo.
