Suicide Squad: Easter Eggs Kill Justice League Trailer Honor the Origins of Character Comic Books-DC FanDome 2021

Brand New Suicide Squad: Justice League trailer features Easter eggs celebrating the origins of the main characters Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, and King Shark cartoons.

As reported by GamesRadar.com, The trailer for Suicide Squad, which debuted at DC FanDome 2021, gives you another glimpse of these four characters, wearing prison uniforms in the first scene. Given the dark past of these characters, it may not be so surprising on its own, but the numbers on the clothes indicate their first appearance in the comics.

Captain Boomerang sports number 117-12-60, which is a reference to his first appearance on Flash # 117 in December 1960. The deadshot prisoner number is 59-06-50, celebrating his debut at Batman # 59 in June 1950.

King Shark, wearing a prison uniform suggesting that he was transferred from the Federal Prison of Berreve, has the number 001094. This is a reference to his first show at Superboy # 0 in October 1994. A prison where Amanda Waller finds her recruits in cartoons and movies.

Harley Quinn doesn’t seem to have numbers, but since it didn’t appear in the comics for the first time, this actually makes a little sense. Harley Quinn was first introduced in the Batman: Animated series long before jumping to the comics page.

The DC FanDome 2021 Suicide Squad trailer gave us a better view of the world Rocksteady is creating and was the first to see Flash, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman.

There was no release date news other than reaffirming that the game will be released in 2022, but we learned a lot more about the story of the game. What begins as a mission against the seemingly alien threat will soon be a race to kill a corrupted version of some members of the Justice League. Some of the Justice League members have seen the fall, but Batman hasn’t shown up yet. I got a glimpse of Batmobile, but that’s it.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League can be played solo or with up to 3 friends, with customizable weapons, character-specific abilities and more.
