Who is Pete Davidson’s Character in The Suicide Squad?

Pete Davidson is staring in The Suicide Squad alongside a laundry list of huge stars. His character, BlackGuard, however, is one to keep an eye on when the movie finally comes out.

Sporting black leather and guns strapped to his chest, BlackGuard is a DC villain dating back to the 1980s. In the comics, BlackGuard also known as Dick Hertz is a skilled fighter trained by The 1,000. After losing a fight to Booster Gold, BlackGuard was electrocuted and ended up with energy manipulating powers.

It’s unclear if BlackGuard will have the same electricity powers in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, but he seems like he might be playing a big part in the story based on his prominence in the trailers.
