Everyone That Died In The Suicide Squad

Lots of people die in "The Suicide Squad." DC gave 
writer-director James Gunn blanket permission to   kill any character he wanted, and he made good 
use of that freedom. Here's a list of the major   deaths in Gunn's gory romp. Blackguard, Captain Boomerang, TDK, Javelin, 
Mongal, and Savant all die in the beach   assault. This is the first version of 
Task Force X assembled for the movie,   and they all die like jabronis in the 
first 15 minutes. Blackguard sells his   squadmates out to the hostiles, and his 
reward is getting his own face blown off.  Almost everyone else on the beach dies from some 
variation of being shot and/or blown up.

Savant is   an exception; his cranial bomb is detonated 
by Amanda Waller after he tries to run away   from the mission. During a press event Warner Bros. held for "The 
Suicide Squad," actor Juan Diego Botto said,  "The character that I play, General 
Silvio Luna, he is the new ruler of this   Corto Maltese island and he is obsessed with 
two things: His collection of rainbow lorikeets,   and Harley Quinn. And those two obsessions 
will determine his fate eventually."  He had to play it a little coy at the time with 
the last bit, but we have no need for coyness now:   Silvio Luna dies in "The Suicide Squad."  Silvio specifically seeks out Harley Quinn 
and brings her to his palatial estate,   where he says he sees her as the embodiment 
of American rebellion. Upon spending a single   glorious day with Harley, he proposes 
marriage and lays out his plans for rule.  Unfortunately for him, mentioning that those 
plans involve killing civilians and children is   too much of a red flag. Harley shoots Silvio, 
explaining that after her past relationships,   she just can't handle certain toxic elements. DC Comics character Ratcatcher's appearance 
in "The Suicide Squad" is brief, and exists   entirely in memory, but it's accurate to say 
that his character, played by Taika Waititi,   dies in this movie.

We learn his story during a 
flashback: Cleo, aka Ratcatcher II, and her father   grew up on the streets of Portugal, aided entirely 
by his father's ability to communicate with rats   through technology. The rats were able to provide 
them with anything they needed. Unfortunately,   he was also a drug addict and died of an overdose.
This death led Chloe to take his rat wand and also   his name. She moved to America, but was sentenced 
to Belle Reve for armed robbery after the rats   were declared weapons.

We only hear Ratcatcher 
I speak roughly two sentences toward the end of   the film in another flashback, but it's one of 
the movie's most emotional moments, leaving the   audience with the idea that if something as 
vile as a rat can find a place in the world,   anyone can. No death in "The Suicide Squad" 
comes as a bigger shock than that   of Rick Flag. He's the only non-Amanda Waller 
character from the first "Suicide Squad" to   live past the opening credits. It's his nobility 
that does him in: when he discovers the depth of   the US government's involvement with the 
captivity of and research into Starro, he   decides to take a hard drive and tell the world.
Waller, however, has known about this all along,   and has a backup plan: Peacemaker. She gives 
Peacemaker specific instructions to make sure   the information didn't leave the facility.

and Peacemaker fight, and are for the most part   evenly matched — at least until Peacemaker 
manages to fatally stab Flag in the heart. The   only unambiguous hero in Task Force X dies, but 
not before alerting Peacemaker that Ratcatcher II   saw the whole thing. One of James Gunn's most significant 
achievements in "The Suicide Squad"   is making a tragic and sympathetic figure out 
of Polka-Dot Man … and making the character's   equally stupid death devastating. Abner Krill's 
backstory is that his polka dot powers are the   result of an inter-dimensional infection, one set 
up by his scientist mother. He resents his mother   so much that he sees every possible enemy 
— that is to say, everyone — as her. He's   self-conscious about his infection and his 
powers, and just about begs for death.
  "We're all gonna die."
“I hope so."
  During the final battle with Starro, Bloodsport 
has pointed instructions for Polka-Dot Man:   pretend the giant starfish terrorizing the 
city is his mother. Krill manages to inflict   massive damage with his polka-dots.

"He does throw polka-dots at people."
  But just when he's finally feeling confident about 
his powers, his abilities, and his place in the   world, he gets crushed — literally.

The Thinker is the foremost expert on Starro, 
having conducted research on the giant alien   mind-controlling starfish for years. He makes 
an uneasy alliance with the new regime on Corto   Maltese after the coup. Both of these things lead 
to this death, one inevitable as it is brutal.  Task Force X captures the Thinker and escorts 
him to Jotunheim. While there, Task Force X   sees Starro for the first time — and, just 
as damningly, all the people Starro controls.   The Thinker reveals Starro's origins, the research 
he's spent decades conducting, and the fact that   the U.S. was in on it all along. After Jotunheim 
explodes, Starro is freed — and his first order   of business is dealing with his captor.

Thinker begs for his life, but it's no use   as Starro rips the scientist limb from limb. Poor, poor Milton. He isn't a hero, he isn't a 
villain, he isn't even an antihero. He's … just   some dude. He gets swept up with Task Force X and 
drives them from Point A to Point B, albeit with   more than a few unplanned stops between A and 
B. He even helps with several of their schemes,   up to and including planting bombs at Jotunheim.
During a firefight on the upper floors of   Jotunheim, Milton gets killed in the crossfire. 
To add to the indignity of his death, some of   the team doesn't even know he's with them — they 
assume he's back at the van. Harley, meanwhile,   can't remember Milton's name — at least until she 
sees the body.

The perils of being just a normal   guy in a world of metahumans. General Mateo Suarez isn't just the right 
hand man for Silvio Luna, he's the muscle.   A respected and feared military leader, he 
also has his own leadership aspirations and   functionally takes control of the government 
after Luna's death. He's shown to be   far more brutal than Silvio, but he gets karmic 
payback and a half for everything he's done.  When word reaches him that Task Force X is at 
Jotunheim, he personally leads the army assaulting   the tower. He and his men survive the explosion, 
but they don't survive Starro. Finally free,   Starro kills or mind controls almost the entire 
Corto Maltese military — including Suarez,   who learns the hard way not to mess with 
intergalactic starfish. He dies like the   rest of his men — confused and despondent as the 
secret his government hid stops being a secret   in the least subtle way possible. Starro: an intergalactic starfish, and also 
perhaps the most dangerous evil force in the DCEU.   Captured by astronauts who only found out about 
his mind control ability after he spit some   offspring at them, Starro was brought 
to Earth for research.

Understandably,   being kept in captivity for decades leaves him 
with something of a grudge against humanity — on   top of his already existing conquering urges.
Long kept a secret by both the U.S. and Corto   Maltese governments, Starro makes himself known to 
the world in a big way after finally escaping from   Jotunheim. After a thrilling battle, during which 
Bloodsport finally shows his mettle as a leader,   Starro is defeated.

His eye is pierced by 
Harley as rats jump in and tear his innards   to shreds. Task Force X become heroes, and 
end up in the rarest of all situations:   having leverage over Amanda Waller.
