Tom Taylor’s run on Suicide Squad has shown the writer isn’t afraid to kill off just about anyone.
The book is only five issues in and Taylor has already managed to kill off an incredible amount of characters and it’s been recently revealed that Deadshot is the next character to bite the dust under Taylor’s reign.
Floyd Lawton has become synonymous with the Suicide Squad and almost all iterations of the group feature him.
On his Twitter account, Taylor tweeted out the news, saying : “Deadshot. Shot Dead. Yes. Really.”
The news shouldn’t come as a surprise as no one is safe in Taylor’s books, but Deadshot had played a major role in the series so far so it will be interesting to see where we go from here!
Deadshot is set to be killed in Suicide Squad #9.
