What do you get the man who’s ferrying the world’s most dangerous criminals on their way to saving the world? You get him a bodyguard, of course. Not just any bodyguard. One with a sword that can trap your soul. 

Meet Katana, who will appear in Suicide Squad as the bodyguard to Rick Flag, Amanda Waller’s feet on the ground. Rick will probably need all the protection he can get, considering he’s babysitting Harley Quinn, Enchantress, Killer Croc and several other villainous villains.

In the clip below, Katana shows she’s all business by offering to kill them within 10 seconds of her arrival. Harley, who seems to be the film’s comic relief, sex appeal and jack-in-the-box filled with evil surprises, is charmed. 

Karen Fukuhara takes on the role of Katana. Katana has been slicing through bad guys since 1983, when she first appeared in The Brave and the Bold #200.
