Sometimes, what you throw into the universe will come back to you. In the case of George “Digger” Harkness, a.k.a. Captain Boomerang, that would be a collection of lethally accurate boomerangs that wreak wanton destruction upon their targets before dependably returning to Harkness, ready for another go-round.

During his childhood in Australia, Digger became adept at crafting boomerangs. At first, they were playthings, but later in life, he learned to enhance his boomerangs with incendiary or electrifying components. Digger’s skill with the device led to a job as a performer and boomerang promoter in the U.S., but he didn’t receive a warm welcome. Laughter from the audience made him resentful, so he took his bitterness and poured it into a life of crime, taking on the moniker of Captain Boomerang. Eventually, the law caught up with him, and Digger found himself looking at a life in prison. That is, of course, unless he joined the Suicide Squad for a chance at a pardon.

It says a lot about your personality if the members of the Suicide Squad think you’re dysfunctional, and that’s probably one of the kinder words they’d use to describe Captain Boomerang.
