When We First Met – The Full Cast of the Suicide Squad

In this feature we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore, like the first time someone said, “Avengers Assemble!” or the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny or the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth or the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter. Stuff like that. Here is an archive of all the When We First Met features so far! Check ’em out!

With Suicide Squad opening this weekend, let’s take a look at the comic book debuts of the full cast of the film!

This one seems a bit silly to do, but what the hey, here is the first appearance of the Joker from 1940’s Batman #1, by Bill Finger, Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson…

Harley Quinn made her debut in Batman: The Animated Series in the 1992 episode “Joker’s Favor,”

She made her comic book debut in 1993’s Batman Adventures #12 by Kelley Puckett, Mike Parobeck and Rich Burchett (which features Puckett’s take on Batgirl’s debut)…

Harley made her debut in the “real” DC Comics continuity in 1999’s Batman: Harley Quinn, which was a one-shot special that came out during the No Man’s Land crossover series, by her creator, Paul Dini and artists Yvel Guichet and Araron Sowd…

Deadshot made his debut in 1950’s Batman #59 (by David Vern Reed, Bob Kane, Lew Schwartz and Charles Paris), masquerading as a good guy…

Batman and Robin figure out his plan…

but Deadshot vows to shoot Batman. Check out how Batman defeats him…

That’s a pretty damned risky plan, no?

Over twenty-five years later, in 1977’s Detective Comics #474, Steve Englehart, Marshall Rogers and Terry Austin depict Deadshot’s escape from prison, where we see Rogers’ famous re-design of Deadshot’s costume…

On the next page, meet the next group of members of the Squad, including the leaders of the Squad!!
