Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a video game about one thing and one thing only: killing the Justice League. How you do that, however, is entirely up to you. With uncountable ways to customize your stats, weapon loadouts and even the cosmetics you bring to the battle, no two players’ experience is going to be exactly the same. But the first choice you make is going to be who’s doing the killing.

There are currently four characters in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League available to you and your personal squad: Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn and King Shark. The difference between them is far from mere aesthetics—each playable character provides a completely unique way of interacting with the environment, traversing Metropolis and beating on bad guys. So, which one is right for you? Well, no matter what your choice is, whoever you end up bringing with you to war is going to end up making a statement. To help you determine exactly what that statement is, we thought we’d look at what your choice in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League characters may say about you.

Play Style:

Harley Quinn: You really loved the previous Rocksteady games. Of all the characters available, Harley controls the most like Batman does in the Arkham series, down to her melee attacks and grappling hook.

Deadshot: You identify as, or have been identified as, a Gamer. You’re always down for a game that gives you lots of guns and lets you unload them on hordes of enemies.

Captain Boomerang: Your favorite video game verbs are dodge, parry and sneak attack. Zipping and warping around the battlefield with Speed Force-empowered boomerangs, the true Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League starts here.

King Shark: You come in like a wrecking ball. Big weapons, big melee, big action. SHARK SMASH.

Getting Around Town:

Harley Quinn: With your stolen grappling hook and bat-glider, you just want to glide over Metropolis like you soared over Arkham City back in the 2010s.

Deadshot: Jetpack joyride. You crave omnidirectional freedom and finesse, even if you occasionally have to touch back down to recharge your jet fuel.

Captain Boomerang: Empowered by a Speed Force gauntlet, Boomerang crosses large distances by teleporting as far as he can throw his boomerang. You don’t let anybody tell you the “sensible” thing to do.

King Shark: Jump good. Jump REAL good. You’d like to make like Superman in 1940 and leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Social Dynamics:

Harley Quinn: You think you’re the fun one.

Captain Boomerang: You think you’re the funny one.

King Shark: You actually are the funny one.

Deadshot: You really just wish these other chuckleheads would keep the comms clear and focus on Suicide Squad: Killing the Justice League.

You Do the Side Missions For:

Deadshot: Better weapons and gear.

Harley Quinn: More character dialogue, interactions and worldbuilding.

Captain Boomerang: Getting technical and practicing your Terminaut-slaying skills.

King Shark: Spending more time with your friends.

Why You’re Onboard:

Captain Boomerang: Showing up Flasher. And the bomb in your skull.

Deadshot: A future for your daughter. Also, the bomb.

King Shark: A deep longing for camaraderie and friendship. Ambivalent about the bomb.

Harley Quinn: Looks like fun. What bomb?

Most Psyched Up to Kill:

Harley Quinn: Dibs on Batman!

Deadshot: Green Lantern. Don’t ask, it’s personal.

King Shark: Anyone who would threaten the people you love.

Captain Boomerang: Who do you bloody think, mate?

Can You Be Trusted with Pet-Sitting?

King Shark: With your life.

Harley Quinn: As long as they don’t mind you spoiling them with treats.

Deadshot: What’s the budget?

Captain Boomerang: Under no circumstances whatsoever.

But hey, maybe none of these sound like you. Maybe you’re the kind of person who looks out at this somber premise of the corruption of the world’s most incorruptible and your first reaction is to ask… “Why so serious?” Luckily for you, new characters will be coming to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League with each new season of content added to the game. First up: The Joker. After that, who knows? But somewhere in the multiverse, we’re sure you’ll eventually find the one super-villain freak who speaks to your soul.

Me? I’m waiting for Lady Shiva.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
