It would be quite unlikely if someone says they grew up without idolizing some of the other superheroes. Be it Superman, Batman, Ironman, Captain America, or Spider-Man, we have all looked up to them as children. DC and MCU are the biggest creators of our childhood heroes. Along with the heroes came diverse universes, which included both real and fictional locations. But no superhero story is complete without the antagonist, the supervillains. The vicious and ruthless villains were created to be a menace to society. The heroes defeat these villains and uphold justice. Joker, Thanos, Ra’s al Ghul, General Zod, Galactus, and Dormammu are some well-known villains. Let’s talk about Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League Gameplay And Synopsis
The game Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is based in the same world as the Batman: Arkham series. This will be a genre-bending video game set in the city of Metropolis. Metropolis is the home to the beloved superhero Superman. The game will feature the anti-hero team Suicide Squad as the main character. This development in the Batman: Arkham series was teased in Batman: Arkham Origins (2013). Rocksteady Studios confirmed the launch of the game with a trailer released in August 2020. The trailer showed the Suicide Squad fighting in a devastated Metropolis city.
The plot of the game shows that Metropolis has been captured by Brainiac. He is a constant adversary of the Justice League ever since his first appearance in 1958 comics. Brainiac is also Superman’s archenemy because he was responsible for Krypton’s destruction. In the game, Brainiac has brainwashed all of the Justice League. The squad sweeps through lines of enemies in search for the Alpha Target, as instructed by Amanda Waller. But they soon find out that a mind-controlled Superman is the Alpha Target. Players can choose to play either solo or in multiplayer. Solo mode lets players switch between characters in the Suicide Squad while others are controlled by AI. In the multiplayer mode, players have to co-op in a team of four.

Which Characters Will Be Seen In Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League?
As discussed earlier, the Suicide Squad will be the main focus of the game. This squad was first created for the comics series in DC in 1959. They debuted in the comic The Brave and the Bold. The Suicide Squad contains imprisoned supervillains who carry out covert operations to reduce sentences. And as the name suggests, they are expendable. That’s why they are used in very high-risk secret missions. Everyone in the squad has a bomb fitted in their necks to ensure loyalty. The Suicide Squad has witnessed many variations throughout its history. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League will feature Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. We noticed Superman in the official trailer, mind-controlled by Brainiac. Batman is expected to later show up in the game, as he knows the weaknesses of every Justice League member.
