Default Re: Which villain(s) should the reboot start with?

Deadshot...I can't say I have ever understood the appeal. At his core, he is a flippant gunslinger in a bright red suit. His use in a story is inevitably going to be in an 'enforcer' or henchman type role, but surely the Batman universe has many more interesting characters that can fulfill the same role? The fact that Deadshot uses ballistics alone probably prevents a show-down being especially interesting, anyway.

The Seven Men of Death might be more entertaining.
