Suicide Squad CostumesThis popular franchised has morphed from just a DC comic into videos, books and now film.

The Suicide Squad, also known as Task Force X, is a name for two fictional organizations which originally appeared in two DC comics.

The Suicide Squad initiative functions as an “unusual” work release program consisting of a “strike team” of incarcerated,death row super-villains, acting as covert assets of the United States government,..which the government can deny at any point. How convenient.

The original Suicide Squad stories revolved around a quartet of non-powered adventurers fighting super-powered opponents, like (at the time) the Soviet Union.  But in 2011 DC rolled out an all-new team of death-row super villains recruited by the government to take on “black ops” missions so dangerous–they’re sheer suicide!

We chose a few of the most popular “Suicide Squad” costume’s currently available, but you can see all of the ones available by going here.  Here we go:

When the Joker is returned to Arkham after a battle with Batman, the sight of her badly injured patient drives Harleen insane, leading her to quit her psychiatrist job and don a jester costume to become Harley Quinn, the Joker’s sidekick.

One of our favorite bad guys from the Batman franchise.  This guy was so popular he got his own comic book.

The Joker first appeared in a DC comic back in 1940, if you can believe it. Although he was planned to be killed off during his initial appearance, he was spared, allowing the character to endure and he’s been tormenting Batman ever since.
