Deadshot (Batman Villain) - Framed Print - 16"H x 12"W
A 16"H x 12"W" framed print of Deadshot one of the many Villains that Batman fought
Deadshot (real name Floyd Lawton), commonly as an adversary of Batman has more recently taken the role of an antihero.
As the world's deadliest and most accurate marksman, Deadshot has become a staple member of both the Suicide Squad and Secret Six.
Deadshot is often a hired assassin, regularly boasting to "never miss." He is capable of using a large variety of weapons, but is most frequently portrayed as using a pair of silenced, wrist-mounted guns. He initially appears in Gotham City as a new crime fighter, but is revealed to be an enemy of Batman when he attempts to replace the Dark Knight.
He is sent to jail when Batman and Commissioner Gordon publicly expose his plot to become the king of Gotham's underworld. After serving his term, Deadshot begins hiring his services out as an assassin, changing his costume from the top hat and tails he previously wore to a red jumpsuit and distinctive metal face plate with a targeting device on the right side.
His real name is Floyd Lawton and he grew up with his mother, abusive father, and beloved brother, whom he idolized. On one occasion, Lawton's father attacked his brother, prompting the young Deadshot to attempt to end his father's reign of terror on the family with his own rifle. However, the branch of the tree where he was sitting broke as he fired, causing the bullet to hit his brother instead, killing him. The psychological effects of this event are widely seen as the reasoning behind Deadshot's affinity for surrogate brothers, his now almost impeccable aim, his disregard for his own life, and his inability to kill Batman.
