Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is finally out for everyone to play. However, much to no one's surprise, it has made headlines for being a very controversial experience at launch that leaves a few things to be desired. But while the video game itself is far from being the greatest Rocksteady project ever (as we discussed in our review), it does hold up well in one particular and secretive department. That's right, Task Force X's latest adventure is filled with many, many different easter eggs for players to find all across its map and campaign. So it's time to step into the shoes of the world's greatest detective and break down all the major references hidden in DC's latest video game.
Note: This list is presented in no particular order, and some of the best secrets were saved for near last. So be sure to stick around until the end!
1. Catwoman's post-card
At one point in the game, the Suicide Squad goes to one of Batman's secret hideouts concealed in a money vault at Wayne Enterprises. If you explore the vaults carefully enough, you'll be able to see a postcard directed to Bruce Wayne that's filled with many kisses and one single signature: S.K. That's right, even after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight, Selina Kyle is still reaching out to Bruce by sending him cards.
Unfortunately, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League lacks a photo mode, so we aren't able to zoom in on the postcard and read what it says. But that signature alone is enough to let us know Catwoman is still out there, thinking about the Cape Crusader.
2. Justice League United
All throughout the streets of Metropolis, players will be able to see advertising for superhero-themed popsicles. Upon closer inspection, it would appear they are alluding to the Justice League United. From left to right, the popsicles could represent the following heroes: Vandal Savage, Stargirl, Adam Strange, Martian Manhunter, and Animal Man. Now the only question remaining is: where are they and why didn't they help fight Brainiac?
3. Wally West and Hal Jordan
The Arkham-verse version of the Justice League is comprised of Barry Allen and John Stewart as The Flash and Green Lantern, respectively. However, when players make a trip to an alternate dimension, we see things are a little bit different over there. After all, Earth-2 features Hal Jordan wearing the Green Lantern ring, and Wally West taking on the Flash persona. It's nice to see nods to the different versions of DC's most iconic heroes throughout the multiverse. Let's just hope Hal and Wally make an appearance in post-launch episodes of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.
4. Doctor Sivana is working with Lex Luthor
There are many prop documents and newspaper pages scattered throughout the city of Metropolis. If players take the time to inspect them, chances are they could come across one specific paper on string theory written by Lex Luthor alongside... you guessed it, Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana. Just in case you need a reminder, Doctor Sivana is a recurring nemesis of Shazam and even made his live-action debut as the main antagonist of... well, the 2019 Shazam movie.
You can't fool us, Lex and Sivana. Make as many innocent papers on string theory as you want, we all know you two are up to no good working together. Speaking of which...
