Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad (2016)

Who he is: Captain Boomerang, a.k.a. George “Digger” Harkness

His power: He throws boomerangs really well. Seriously, that’s his skill.

His story: George Harkness is a jewel thief who is shown early in Suicide Squad being captured by The Flash during a robbery. An Australian stereotype in many ways—he says “mate” more often in two hours than most Aussies do in the course of a week—he’s a roughneck with boomerang skills and a fondness for pink unicorns, one of which is a stuffed one named “Pinky” that he carries around. He reluctantly joins Task Force X, but only stops planning to immediately escape after he convinces another criminal, Slipknot, to try and flee, triggering one of the bombs installed in everyone’s necks and blowing Slipknot’s head off. He fights alongside the team and helps to defeat Enchantress and her brother by film’s end. He’s returned to prison afterward and is pretty pissed about it.

Currently, Captain Boomerang is: In Belle Reve prison.

Where will we see him next: Courtney has stated his desire to revisit the character, and outside of the unlikely chance of a cameo in the Flash movie, he’ll certainly appear in the Suicide Squad sequel.
