* NoSocialSkills: It's what happens when your entire childhood was spent fighting for your life in one of the world's toughest prisons.

* NoSocialSkills: It's what happens when your entire childhood was spent fighting for your life Due to being raised by thugs, rapists and murderers in one of the world's toughest prisons.worst HellholePrison in South America, Bane is violent, vicious and intelligent, but has virtually no social skills and has no idea how to behave in a non-criminal setting.


Added DiffLines:

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: A skewed example. After finding out in Hell that his "personal code of honor" didnt make him a good person and he's damned for his crimes in life, he decides that if he's damned anyway, he might as well go all out back on Earth, not realizing that he's been evil the entire time, he just assumed that avoiding certain KINDS of evils was the same as not being evil at all.

* AbusiveParents

to:

* AbusiveParentsAbusiveParents: Pretty much all of the original group to one extent or another, with Scandals and Ragdolls fathers being portrayed as the worst by far, with Catmans sadist trophy hunter father a close second. Parademon didnt ''have'' parents as we know them on Earth, but was still raised by Granny Goodness, the New God of Child Abuse. However, unlike his teammates, he doesnt have mental scars from it since this is a default parental method on Apokalypse.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though notably, everyone has ''different'' standards that often lead them into conflict.

to:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Though notably, everyone has ''different'' standards that often lead them into conflict. Catman is the most traditionally heroic while Deadshot will shoot anything that moves if he's paid for it.



* NoSell: One of the Madmen attempts a GroinAttack on him during ''Villains United'', which has no effect at all since Ragdoll had his testicles removed during surgery.



* TrainingFromHell: Not ''training'' per se, but he wasnt born with triple-joints like his father and older brother. He had to undergo years of painful and disfiguring surgery to get his abilities.



** This comes back to bite him in the ass when the Six briefly visit Hell to retrieve the Card, and he finds out that he's damned for his lifetime of murder and brutality, and he's ''genuinely confused'' that he's slated for damnation. Apparently he had assumed that following his own code of honor meant that he was a fundamentally a good person, not realizing that making up your own moral code is not the same as following an objective morality.



* MoralMyopia: Belives that following his own moral code is the same as being good. He's wrong.



* KickTheSonOfABitch: Her torture of Elizabeth Bathory during her time as the countess caretaker. She fed the woman ground glass over the course of decades, making sure that she didnt have one moment without pain until her eventual death.



* MakeMeWannaShout: A particularly nasty one; she screams waves of death that can incapacitate even WonderWoman.

to:

* MakeMeWannaShout: A particularly nasty one; she screams waves of death that can incapacitate even WonderWoman. Turns out the scream is actually a form of MindRape that forces the person that hears it to suffer the way Banshee did in her original life.

* CompanionCube: Becomes very fond of a lawn gnome at Big Shot's yard and often carries it around with her.



* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: After the terrible life she has had both before and after her integration as a Talon for the Court of Owls, she got to see the Six as her family and was as loyal as them as they to her. Come the final issue, she now lives happily with the whole crew (minus Shawna after her betrayal) after they decide to retire from action and go straight, has her own "room" in a tree house built just for her (and full of [[CompanionCube lawn gnomes]]), even the neighbors like her, and she has notably removed the bandages from her face with no shame of her scars. She narrates the final few pages of the book and it's clear she's happier than ever]].



** [[spoiler: The final issue reveals that Ferdie is definitely not alive, but it's actually a different personality of Shawna's, the only part of her personality that was actually getting to genuinely care for the Six and be loyal to them. Shawna admitted to not liking thi and leaves Ferdie behind after betraying the team]].



* TokenEvilTeammate: Easily fills this role in the team.

* TokenEvilTeammate: Easily fills this role in the team. [[spoiler: She eventually betrays them in the final issue]].



* BiTheWay: Is equally attracted to Catman and [[spoiler: Scandal Savage]].

* BiTheWay: Is equally attracted to Catman and [[spoiler: Scandal Savage]].Jeannette]].



* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: They can make things shatter like glass, which is very effective for breaking into or out of places, as well as for hand-to-hand combat, being able to shatter the opponent's bones with a mere touch.

* BerserkButton: Don't hurt her or even threaten her in front of Bane. Remember what he did to [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} good 'ol Bats?]] He'll do that to you. Seriously, don't fuck with Scandal in front of Bane.

Added DiffLines:

** Hell, she's so bad, even at age 4 Lian is perfectly aware of and ashamed of how horrible her mother is. When Lian's babysitter revealed that her grandparents died in the Qurac explosion, Lian got so angry at her mother she threw Jade's picture at the wall shouting "BAD MOMMY!"


Added DiffLines:

* MaternallyChallenged: Subverted. When she was taking care of Lian, and later Tommy, she didn't exactly mistreat or abuse them. But the general implications are that she only does so to carry on the facade of actually giving a shit about them so she can keep using and hurting their fathers. If it looks like she doesn't love her kids, then there's no reason for their dads to give a crap about her. Her original plan for Lian was to use her mere existence to torment Roy Harper as revenge for walking out on her, and Tommy's conception was so she'd at least have one child after leaving the Six and so Catman would have a reason to protect her when she betrayed the team. Gail Simone describes Cheshire as having a lizard-like mentality with her kids: the moment they become a detriment to her freedom, all bets are off.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInDumbass: Jade always had a rather eloquent vernacular, but following ''Rise of Arsenal'' and starting in ''Villains for Hire'' her vocabulary suddenly became extremely limited and she started swearing more frequently.
* {{Troll}}: It doesn't get any pettier than blowing up the terrorist capital of the world just to prove you could and for laughing in the face of global hypocrisy.
* WomanScorned: This is the whole reason she had Lian. The next time she met Roy Harper after their relationship ended, she told him about their child, a child she was never going to let him see as revenge. And when Roy ''did'' meet Lian, Jade changed her plan to taunting Roy by giving him the barest of details on Lian's development but never letting him see her again.

!!'''Deadshot'''



* ArmCannon: Of the "mounted on the forearms" variety.
* AxCrazy: Not always, but he occasionally has the urge to kill everyone in sight.
* BadassMustache
* BadassNormal: Despite what some think, he does not have superhuman aiming skills. He's just that good.
* BerserkButton: Treating a gun like a toy. It's not that he's in favor of gun control or anything, it just annoys him to see fine weapons in the hands of idiots.
* CarpetOfVirility
* CombatPragmatist: Of the "shoot the first chance you get" type.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: His parents openly hated each other, to the point that his mother tried to get his father killed by their sons, but Floyd wound up killing his beloved brother Edward by accident. Later he lost his wife and son, and for most of his life has been unconsciously looking for surrogate brother figures.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeathSeeker: He's not so much suicidal as completely indifferent as to whether or not he lives.
** His response to being told straight from the source that [[spoiler: he'll be condemned to eternity in Hell when he dies]] is simply "Ha! Figures."
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He has no problem shooting an unarmed woman in the back. It's when he finds out she was told that she was free that he gets pissed, since he'd been told she was an escaping prisoner.
** When the Six were first put together, both Deadshot and Cheshire were forced into joining when Mockingbird held the safety of their respective children over their heads. The difference between them? By the end of Villains United, it was demonstrated that Lloyd cared more about his daughter Zoe then Cheshire did Lian, as Cheshire went out of her way to conceive a replacement with no hesitation.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Though he considers himself pretty much irredeemable (see above under DeathSeeker) he does everything he can to make sure his daughter is provided for.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: ''Like you would not believe''. Almost every single panel where Deadshot is neither masked nor eating, he's smoking a cigarette.
* TheGunslinger
* HomoeroticSubtext: With Catman, to a blatantly obvious extent.
* ImprobableAimingSkills
* LikeBrotherAndSister: Has this dynamic with Scandal, even sometimes calling her "sis."
* MultiRangedMaster: Implied - when he runs of out bullets in Skartaris he orders Black Alice to find him a bow, or a sling, or anything that shoots.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Delivers multiple ones to a group of white supremacist thugs. The first one results in a thug losing an eye; they only get more humiliating from there.
* OneManArmy: Has the highest known body count of the core members of the Six; this is what [[NightmareFetishist attracts Jeannette.]]
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler:After learning about how Alice thinks she gave her father cancer, he forces the doctor (who is pretty sure it ''was'' Alice who gave it to him) to call and reassure her that it couldn't possibly have been her fault.]] Although, he might have just done this to make her a more effective team member.
** There's also his interaction with his daughter Zoe and her mother. The money he makes as a mercenary gets sent directly to them.
* PornStache: It's even specifically called this in one issue. He even mentions that some people have said unkind things about it.
* ProfessionalKiller: A lot of his jobs are mercenary gigs, but he generally tries to stick with hitman work.
* TheSociopath: During the ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' crossover, Yasemin (now a Black Lantern) comments that she thought he was this, but he does in fact have emotions buried deep inside. This is accompanied by a visual of his body being mostly black with a few points of color bleeding through.
* TalkToTheFist: If you're on his bad side and he wants to know something, tell him in a quick and concise manner unless you want to get a hole blown in you.
* WouldHitAGirl: Or kneecap a girl, sucker-frag a girl, etc.

* DemonicDummy: Ferdie. Like the original Ventriloquist, it's up for debate if he's actually alive or if it's just Shauna controlling him. Unlike the original, Shauna was already insane long before she got Ferdie. In the third issue of the current ''Secret Six'' series, Porcelain is disturbed by how Ferdie keeps talking even when Shauna is eating and her mouth is full.

[[spoiler: Then during the encounter with Riddler and his goons, Shauna is shot with a tranquilizer dart and knocked out, yet Ferdie continues moving and talking on his own accord, revealing it was he who stole a jewel Riddler was pining for as a gift to Sue Dibny. Though it's not fully confirmed if he's alive or not, this makes the "he's alive" option far more likely.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Shauna has a huge ego, loves being the center of attention, and thinks of herself as popular and famous. She can't stand anyone else getting more attention than her, and out of the whole team, she's the one who is least interested in helping others out.

* AboveGoodAndEvil: Her monologue in the second issue of the ''Six Degrees of Devastation'' mini shows that she doesn't believe in either concept. As far as she's concerned, there are only ''noble'' deeds and ''ignoble'' deeds.


Added DiffLines:

* OneNoteCook: He mostly only cooks eggs, though he once claimed he could also make "a mean slab of raw zebra haunch."

* LikeBrotherAndSister: Has this dynamic with Scandal, even sometimes calling her "sis."
