The latest episode of The CW’s Arrow partly centered on Lyla Michaels’ efforts to assemble a team of villains, but the series avoided using the term “Suicide Squad” when referring to the group.
In the episode, A.R.G.U.S. director Lyla Michaels formed a team of supervillains that included Ricardo Diaz, Slade Wilson’s son, Kane Wolfman, China White, and Carrie Cutter, a.k.a. Cupid. Much like the Suicide Squad in the comics, these recruits have bombs implanted in their heads to deter disobedience. However, whenever characters would use the terms “Suicide” or “Squad” to refer to the team, they would be cut off before the full name could be used. Instead, this new team of villains has been called the Ghost Initiative.

Arrow continues next week with the episode titled “Emerald Archer” and you can read the official synopsis below!

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
