Tom Hardy Suicide Squad Character

One of the more interesting DC comic book characters is Tom Hardy as the headstrong, slightly abrasive and rather controversial character of the Suicide Squad. His contribution to the team has won him many fans. He has even received his own solo comic book series. We thought we would take a look at the man behind the mask.

The Suicide squad is a group of super heroes formed in the early 1940’s as an answer to the war. Their secret identities are kept a secret for obvious reasons. One of the members is a teen called Harley Quinn. She is the fun loving but somewhat crazy girlfriend of the leader of the team, Deadshot. Together they form the dynamic trio known as the Suicide Squads.

The team is assigned their own task in the fight against evil. They often find themselves out of their depth in chaotic situations. In some ways it is like a family taking on a supervision team.

The most common image of the Suicide Squad is the black and white coloured ringed helmets. In fact they appear on almost every comic book cover in existence. The reason the colour variation was introduced is because they originally all wore white. Hardy’s eyes are blue in real life. The colour variation was introduced in the late sixties when colourists began to incorporate blues into comic books. It was then that coloured versions of the helmet were introduced.

The Tom Hardy Suicide Squad image is based on the actual military clothing of the period. Green camo fatigues with white marks on the arms and shoulders are the most popular version. There are many other versions of the uniform which vary according to the purpose of the mission. For instance, the military versions are usually spattered with white markings around the neck and shoulders. These are known as skull caps. They can be worn by civilian members as well.

The Dead Man’s Curve is another version of the Suicides list. This is an extract from a famous comic book storyline. The Suicide Squad had to deal with an organisation called the Dead Man’s Curve. This group of super heroes were hired by the government to deal with super villains. One of the characters that made the cut was the famous Dead Man’s Curve.

The colour variation of Tom Hardy’s Suicide Squad suit comes as a result of the colour green being associated with the colours of the dead in the comic book world. The Dead Man’s Curve was a highly secret and classified member of the Suicide Squad. It featured on the last page of the comic book. It is unknown why he was asked to feature so prominently and whether it was for personal gain or a desire to raise awareness of the darker side of superheroes.

The famous TV show based on the comic book industry is The Mentalist. The Mentalist, in the form of an animated show has taken the world by storm. As well as featuring some of the most memorable characters from the comic books including Dead Man’s Curve and Tom Hardy, the show also features award winning actors Jason Priestley and Rachael Leigh Cook.

A multi-talented actor known for his work in the film industry and stage, Tom Hardy is sure to be a popular favourite among fans of the comic books and television.

As well as being one of the more popular versions of the suicide squad, Vinnie Barbarino was also a regular member of the Suicide squad until his death. In fact he was one of the few survivors of the group who survived the first mission. Although he was badly scarred and suffered many injuries in the attack, he managed to continue working with the group following their recovery. It was whilst working alongside fellow survivor and friend Jack Coleman that he would learn that he had a side love. He would later reveal this to Cisco Truslow before his death, stating that he never realized the extent of their relationship until it was over.

It is clear that the role of Tom Hardy will continue to grow in popularity in future years, given the huge fan base that he already possesses. He has definitely put himself into the role for this year and beyond, and looks set to continue to gain further success in his career for some time to come.
