Harley is a skilled manipulator who serves Waller in the best way possible.

Katana began her life as a superhero alongside Batman in Batman and the Outsiders and after that she has been part of different groups such as Justice League of America and Birds of Prey. She also starred in her own series in 2012, always as a mysterious samurai who uses a sword inhabited by the soul of her late husband. Katana recently joined the ‘Suicide Squad’, in Suicide Squad Most Wanted, and after the movie she will remain a key part of the group.
