Death Battle Fanon Wiki

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.
~ Deadshot - Deadshot #4 (Holiday, 1988)

Having grown up in an abusive family, Floyd Lawton ended up killing his older brother by mistake while attempting to save him from their abusive father. The psychological effects of this event influenced Floyd, who married Susie and spent years away from her and their son Edward. He eventually came under the tutelage of professional assassin David Cain, who taught him everything he knows about marksmanship. Becoming the world's greatest marksman, Deadshot would make his debut in Gotham City, replacing Batman as the city's protector as cover for more serious criminal activity. This was foiled by the Dark Knight & Robin, and years later would be inducted by Amanda Waller into Task Force X, the reactivated Suicide Squad. Eventually, both Susan and Edward would die in tragic circumstances (suicide and killed by a pedophile respectively), but Deadshot discovered later on that a call girl, Michelle Torres, had fostered a daughter named Zoe.

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].
