A hero is defined by their villains, and the world of superhero comic books is filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of favorite superheroes, and we need your help to do it!

However, this week we're stepping out of the usual status quo to talk about villains in a different context; that being the team of villains coerced into heroic acts by the United States government --- The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad has a rich history in comics that stretches way back to the Silver Age, and the one constant is Col. Rick Flag Jr. Other favorites for #1 in this list have to be team overseer Amanda Waller and Suicide Squad mainstay Deadshot.

Maybe you prefer someone like Captain Boomerang, Count Vertigo or Bronze Tiger. Don't forget that Barbara Gordon made her debut as Oracle in the pages of Suicide Squad, salvaging a classic character and reinventing her in role arguably as iconic as Batgirl.

Then of course there are newer additions to Suicide Squad, and no-one has taken a more active role as a Squad member in recent years than Harley Quinn. Deathstroke joined the team for the first time this decade, and made quite the impression, and you've got to love someone like King Shark, who is literally a giant shark man.

Let us know who you think gets the top spot as best member of the Suicide Squad below, and we’ll be back in a few weeks with a countdown of his top ten best and baddest villains. You can vote for up to three selections in the poll!
