    • Deadshot

      Floyd Lawton first appeared in Batman #59 (June 1950), and was created by Bob Kane, David Vern Reed, and Lew Schwartz. Lawton is the scion of a rich family who turned to crime and mastered firearms out of boredom. He first tried to become Gotham City's new hero but was soon arrested and returned as a Silver Age villain 27 years later (in Detective Comics #474 - Dec. 1977) with a new costume and wrist-mounted magnums. He bounced around for a while as a third-tier Batman villain until John Ostrander made him a "permanent" member of the Suicide Squad (Suicide Squad Vol. 1 #1 - May 1987). Although he had a psychological block that prevented him from shooting Batman, he had no such qualms against other opponents and brutally and directly took them out. Under Ostrander it was eventually revealed that Deadshot had a death wish and had pursued a criminal career from an early age - his father had unknowingly hired him to kill his mother, leading to the various psychological problems that haunt him to this day. Since then, Deadshot has remained a DC villain in good standing.
