Let me tell you something about me. Life is the most valuable thing we have, right? When you take a life, that should mean something, right? When I killed my brother, I felt nothing. No guilt, no remorse -- nothing. And he was the one person in this world I ever gave two damns about. They lied to me -- about the importance of life. The only life anybody really cares about is their own and I don't even care about that. You understand? I'm just killing time, waiting to die.

Death Battle Info

As a former soldier and a highly skilled assassin, considered the world's deadliest marksman for his skill with various ranged weapons, Deadshot is in top physical condition and has very sharp senses to pick up people before even seeing them. He has shown himself as a capable hand-to-hand combatant, displaying skills as a boxer and martial artist.


Deadshot wears a suit composed of an armored chest piece, two wrist turrets that emit continuous gun shots in rapid fire, fully loaded bandoleer and various magazines of ammunition that he laced with curare, an asphyxiation-inducing poison, to ensure he kills his target regardless of the wound is mortal or not as long as one bullet made contact with the victim's blood stream. Deadshot also uses a high-tech laser sighted eye-patch that he wears over his right eye, augmenting his already amazing marksman skills with thermal imaging and doubling as a sniping scope. While Deadshot's usual weapon of choice is a long-ranged sniper rifle, he can use hand guns and semi-automatics. He even used a grenade launcher to remove obstacles like bulletproof glass. He also carries other weapons for close combat; like knives and tasers [1].
