A new piece of Suicide squad Fan art sees Peacemaker at the center of Uncle Sam-inspired propaganda. Created by Joe Gill and Pat Boyette, Peacemaker made his comic debut in 1966 as a pacifist diplomat who, ironically, uses excessive force to ensure peace. John Cena recently brought this “idiotic version of Captain America” to the DC Extended Universe in James Gunn. Suicide squad—Who also configures HBO Max’s Pacifier derived series.
In Suicide squad, Peacemaker joins Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior), Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian) and the rest. of Task Force X on their mission to destroy all traces of Project Starfish in Corto Maltese. Ultimately, it is revealed that the United States was behind Project Starfish the entire time and, when Flag chooses to reveal this to the public, Peacemaker kills him to protect the interests of the country. When Flag dies, pronounce “Peacemaker, what a joke. “
Artist Siningnisid On Instagram he recently shared some art imagining Peacemaker as an Uncle Sam figure. The piece sees him pointing an accusing finger just like Uncle Sam in that iconic “I love you” recruitment poster from WWI.

When Peacemaker says for the first time “I appreciate peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women and children I need to kill to get it., ”The absurdity of the line plays for the laughs, but it also places Cena’s character as a compelling third-act antagonist. In Peacemaker’s eyes it’s clear that he doesn’t necessarily want to kill Flag or Ratcatcher 2, but he’s committed to his twisted sense of patriotism / duty. The movie raises many questions (for example, his relationship with Peacemaker Sr.) about what prompted him to be this way. Gunn has said that these questions are why Peacemaker is getting a spinoff series that will take place both before and after the events of Suicide squad.
Before the battle with Starro the Conqueror, Peacemaker is shot and apparently killed by Bloodsport. Suicide squad‘s The post-credits scene reveals that Peacemaker was found alive among the rubble of Jotunheim. For whatever reason, John Economos (Steve Agee), Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) and Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) need him to “save the damn world. “Who knows, maybe that means running propaganda all over the city.
