Every character in 'Suicide Squad,' ranked

21. Slipknot (Adam Beach)

21. Slipknot (Adam Beach)

With one of the most distasteful introductions in movie history as he walks out of an SUV and immediately decks a female guard with a right hook, there's really nothing else memorable from the guy who can climb anything. Might have been best to leave him on the cutting-room floor.

20. Enchantress (Cara Delevingne)

20. Enchantress (Cara Delevingne)

The evil witch who likes to shake her hips is the cause of all the trouble in the movie. But played by an actress who is still learning her craft, the character feels forced.

19. The Flash (Ezra Miller)

19. The Flash (Ezra Miller)

One of the last-second additions to the movie, The Flash literally says one line and, like his power, is gone. Just teasing us for Erza Miller coming in "Justice League."

18. Incubus

18. Incubus

Enchantress' brother spends the movie forming an army. He's just the latest silly-looking villain in a comic-book movie.

17. Monster T (Common)

17. Monster T (Common)

Yep, that's Common playing the nose ring-wearing villain who gets on the Joker's bad side. Have to admit, couldn't help but chuckle when I realized it was him.

16. Lieutenant GQ Edwards (Scott Eastwood)

16. Lieutenant GQ Edwards (Scott Eastwood)

The rising star finds himself in a few key scenes playing one of the members of Rick Flag's team. Perhaps a little too small a part for an actor who has already been a leading man in a movie.

15. Grace (Corina Calderon)

15. Grace (Corina Calderon)

The wife of Diablo, Calderon's Grace builds up the human aspect of Diablo, which brings us a greater understand of his pain.

14. Dexter Tolliver (David Harbour)

14. Dexter Tolliver (David Harbour)

Along with his sterling work on the hit Netflix show "Stranger Things," actor David Harbour throws out an incredible line in "Suicide Squad": “What if Superman had decided to fly down, rip off the roof of the White House, and grab the president right out of the Oval Office? Who would have stopped him?”

That is an incredible post-9/11 piece of dialogue.

13. Zoe (Shailyn Pierre-Dixon)

13. Zoe (Shailyn Pierre-Dixon)

Another rare example of giving one of the squad characters a little emotional weight, Deadshot's daughter, Zoe, proves to be this villain's soft spot.

12. Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje)

12. Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje)

He enjoys swimming through sewers and watches BET. Croc is on the scene at a few important moments and throws in a funny line now and again.

11. Katana (Karen Fukuhara)

11. Katana (Karen Fukuhara)

Brought on by Flag to watch his back, Katana has a big backstory that fuels her interest in working alongside the squad.

10. Batman (Ben Affleck)

10. Batman (Ben Affleck)

To continue the Justice League threat, Batman pops up once in a while in the movie. He shows off some moves, and Affleck has some growling dialogue. He's one of the few characters in the movie who has the right amount of screen time.

9. The Joker (Jared Letto)

9. The Joker (Jared Letto)

Though I think he has no purpose in the movie, you can't deny the talent of Leto playing the mythic character. I hope he returns to the DC Comics cinematic universe in a better project.

8. Panda Man (James McGowan)

8. Panda Man (James McGowan)

What this movie needed was more Panda Man, one of the members of the Joker's team. I couldn't help but enjoy the bizarre visual of a grown man in a panda suit shooting up a laboratory with a machine gun.

7. Rick Flag (Joel Kinneman)

7. Rick Flag (Joel Kinneman)

The man responsible for making sure the squad carries through on their mission, Kinneman does his best with the material handed to him. Flag is a strong character I'd like to see more of.

6. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis)

6. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis)

Viola Davis is definitely a bright spot in the movie as she plays Waller with zero emotional interest in any of the other characters. I felt she could turn on anyone at any time.

5. Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney)

5. Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney)

He doesn't have that much to do in the movie, but Boomerang shines with what he gets, playing mind games and bringing some much-needed jokes throughout.

4. Griggs (Ike Barinholtz)

4. Griggs (Ike Barinholtz)

You could make the argument that the best part of "Suicide Squad" is when Griggs is in the story. Barinholtz plays the perfect Alpha at the prison that's holding many in the squad.

3. Deadshot (Will Smith)

3. Deadshot (Will Smith)

Will Smith gives a strong performance as the assassin who never misses. Taking up most of the screen time is a huge advantage, as his character is one of the few whose stories gets a well-rounded depiction.

2. Diablo (Jay Hernandez)

2. Diablo (Jay Hernandez)

The emotion of the movie is packed inside this character, whom Hernandez thrives at playing. His big moment comes in the finale and he doesn't disappoint. (Seriously, he's the only thing working in the ending.)

1. Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)

1. Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)

Margot Robbie brings the psychiatrist-turned-accomplice of the Joker to life with an energy that jumps off the screen. There better be a Harley Quinn standalone movie on fast track to production. Now there would be a hard moive to screw up.
