‘Suicide Squad’ Or ‘Sinister Six:’ Which Is The Better Super Villain Team?

“Suicide Squad,” the super villain ensemble from the DC camp is anyway getting a movie that is set to release next year. However, Marvel too has a decent line up of super villains to boast of. Mainly, the “Sinister Six”- the team features some of the biggest and worst villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to Clevver Movies, there were two sides supporting the respective super villain team. The “Suicide Squad” side represented by Erin Robinson mentioned that the Squad has no set limit and to assemble the team, all would need Amanda Waller and some extremely dangerous villains from the Arkham Asylum who would undertake Black Ops for the US government in order to get amnesty. It is also mentioned that as compared to the maximum of 20 members that the Marvel team has added till now to its team, the DC team has had over 100 members in and out added to its roster. It has been stated that because of the Squad being funded by the Government to undertake life-threatening ops, it only makes it more viable as compared to “Sinister Six” whose leader might just depend on the villain calling the shots at that time.

Marvel fans need not feel bad because the Marvel side represented by Flitz defended it by saying that the Squad members are basically expendables, where there’s a high possibility that their own boss will take them down if needed. “Sinister Six,” on the other hand, is quite independent making them capable of calling the shots at their own will. The DC side then stated that it is kind of embarrassing when six super villains have to come together to take down one superhero teenager and that too having been unsuccessful multiple times.

“Suicide Squad” on the other hand has villains like Deadshot, Black Adam, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Solomon Grundy, KGBeast, Killer Croc and King Shark amongst others. Marvel side made a counter point by saying that “Sinister Six” also has quite the villains like Hobgoblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Electro, The Lizard, Green Goblin, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman amongst others.

However, in conclusion, Erin closed stating that when the DC super villain team loses, their heads get blown up as compared to the “Sinister Six” who would probably run and might even go to Spider-Man seeking help. In the end, both the teams have their own significance in their respective Cinematic Universe and quite honestly what would the heroes do if the villains were not around.
