Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is full of Easter eggs – as are all of Rocksteady’s Arkhamverse games – with several DC characters such as Superman, Green Arrow, or Blue Beetle teased across the game’s map of Metropolis. Although Task Force X’s mission takes place outside of Gotham, introducing a new location away from Batman’s home for the first time in the series, there are still plenty of references to the previous Batman: Arkham games to be found.

[Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.]

After a tutorial in a decimated Metropolis, a flashback takes players back to when Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘s story began with an introduction to Arkham Asylum reminiscent of the opening of the Arkhamverse’s first game Batman: Arkham Asylum, as a convoy of A.R.G.U.S. SUVs transport Waller and her team to the iconic asylum in place of the Batmobile. The Batman: Arkham Asylum score from that scene also plays, making it clear that this game is a continuation of Rocksteady’s take on the Batman mythos from the offset.

10 Task Force X’s Inmate Numbers

The Numbers On Task Force X’s Uniforms Have A Greater Meaning

When players are first introduced to Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘s Task Force X, they are seen wearing Arkham Asylum and Belle Reve inmate uniforms, which can be worn and customized throughout the game. These uniforms each clearly state Harley Quinn, Deadshot, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang’s inmate numbers, which represent the issue, month and year of their first comic appearance.

9 Unique Dialogue In “The Batman Experience”

Each Member Of Task Force X Has A Unique Insight Into The Arkhamverse’s Events

Metropolis’ “Batman Experience” is a museum exhibition that can either provide a refresher on the events of the Arkhamverse, or get new players up to speed as it recaps Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight before explaining what happened in the five years before Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. Many of these events are recreated in large displays that can be interacted with.

The Batman Experience is narrated by Jack Ryder, a journalist whom players have interacted with in Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Knight.

Each member of Task Force X has their own unique insights when interacting with the Arkham character displays. For example, when interacting with the Harley Quinn display as Harley, she will lament “Every gal has a phase she regrets, mine happened to get me consecutive life sentences” and when looking at Joker’s Titan transformation she will comment “I can’t even say that’s the most messed up thing he did“. When looking at the Batman: Arkham City version of Deadshot as Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘s version, Deadshot will call him a “phony steampunk-ass looking dude.”

The “Double Tap” A.R.G.U.S. tapes in the Codex further elaborate on Floyd Lawton’s past and his encounter with the other version of Deadshot.

Every member will also have their own opinion on the display depicting Joker’s death in Batman: Arkham City. Deadshot will simply say “Ain’t this supposed to be a family show?“, King Shark will talk about “expiring in the arms of a superhero“, and Boomerang compares it to his rivalry with Flash. Harley has the most personal and emotional reaction however, considering her ties to Joker and how it impacted her in the Harley Quinn’s Revenge DLC and Batman: Arkham Knight, and talks about how she coped by compartmentalizing her grief.

8 The Man-Bat Strikes Again

Suicide Squad: KTJL References Arkham Knight’s Infamous Jump Scare

Harley Quinn with The Batman Experience's hidden Man-Bat jump scare display

Whereas most of The Batman Experience’s displays are in the open and have interactive prompts to hear Jack Ryder’s narration of the story behind each character or moment, there is a hidden display. This is hidden atop the church in the room that covers the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. If players climb to the top, they will suddenly be greeted by a pop-up Man-Bat standee and a screeching sound effect. This is a callback to the infamous Man-Bat jump scares in Batman: Arkham Knight.

7 Demon Bat In Gotham

Clark Kent’s First Article About Batman Can Be Seen In The Daily Planet

Deadshot looks at the framed Daily Planet article by Clark Kent with the headline

When exploring the abandoned Daily Planet, Task Force X comes across several references to Superman lore and can visit some of the Man of Steel’s colleagues’ desks. As is expected from a newsroom, there are several major newspaper front pages on display, one of which has the headline “Demon Bat In Gotham“.

This particular article was written by Superman himself, Clark Kent, and although at first the headline could be a reference to Man-Bat, the opening line says “Man dressed as a bat. It seems far-fetched, but…” which indicates this is Clark Kent writing about the first appearance of Batman. There’s no year to narrow down when this was written, but considering Batman: Arkham Origins took place 15 years before Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League in the Arkhamverse timeline, it’s even more surprising that the Daily Planet’s Editor-in-Chief has the article open on his computer too.

Perry White also has a large painting of Batman gliding over Gotham, and Wonder Woman in his office.

6 Tributes to Kevin Conroy and Arleen Sorkin

Two Iconic DC Actors Are Memorialized In The Hall Of Justice

Players can find two memorial plaques honoring two iconic DC actors inside the Hall of Justice’s Inner Sanctum, with one on each side of its main doorway. These are in memory of Kevin Conroy, who many consider to be the definitive voice of Batman after three decades of playing the character, and Arleen Sorkin, the inspiration behind and first voice of Harley Quinn in Batman: The Animated Series. Both actors reprised these roles in the Arkhamverse, with Conroy playing Batman in each of Rocksteady’s games, and Sorkin portraying Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham Asylum before Tara Strong took on the role for future installments.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘s post-credits sequence also serves as a tribute to Kevin Conroy.

5 North Refrigeration Has Moved To Metropolis

The Name of Penguin’s Gun-Running Front Has Another Meaning

Boomerang looks up at a sign for North Refrigeration, Penguin's gun-running front.

Penguin’s gun-running front, North Refrigeration, has moved to Metropolis, and Task Force X must visit it to “recruit” the Batman villain for A.R.G.U.S’ “Support Squad.” This was the name used for Cobblepot’s operations in Batman: Arkham Knight, as Batman and Nightwing systematically destroyed his business, but it’s clear he has rebuilt this over the five years since then. North Refrigeration is also likely a reference to Penguin’s voice actor in the Arkhamverse, Nolan North.

4 Another Of Penguin’s More Iconic Business Ventures Appears On Earth 2

The Iceberg Lounge Appears In Earth 2’s Hall Of Justice

Shortly after defeating Flash, Task Force X is teleported to another universe’s version of Metropolis, which has already been decimated by Brainiac. Here, they pick up a signal that Lex Luthor may have survived and follow it to the ruins of the Hall of Justice. When entering this building, a sign for Penguin’s nightclub, The Iceberg Lounge can be seen, suggesting that Earth 2’s Penguin set up this business venture in Metropolis, rather than Gotham.

Players could visit The Iceberg Lounge in Batman: Arkham City to fight Penguin.

3 Suicide Squad: KTJL References Batman’s Predator Methods

Five Years Later, Batman Uses The Same Stealth Tactics

Although Task Force X ends up on the other end of one of the Batman: Arkham Predator missions in “The Batman Experience“, there are other references to his stealth tactics across Metropolis. When exploring Wayne Bank – which was being used as an emergency shelter before being attacked by a brainwashed Batman – players can see open vent shafts surrounded by bullet holes and enemies strung up from grapple points. Both of these are references to the methods used to sneak around and take down enemies in the Batman: Arkham games.

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a somewhat unusual heir to the Batman: Arkham series, with major similarities and differences alike.

2 Deadshot’s Locker Could Be A Callback To Arkham Origins

Deathstroke Was One Of Waller’s First Recruits

Deadshot stands in front of a locker labelled

When A.R.G.U.S. sets up its base in the Hall of Justice, each member of Task Force X gets an individual locker, each with an insulting moniker written on the door. While these change over time, and the characters customize them to be more suited to themselves, Deadshot’s locker originally had the name “Deathstroke” on it. While this is likely done as a dig at Deadshot considering the references to the two assassins’ rivalry, it could also be a nod to Batman: Arkham Origins‘ post-credits scene where Deathstroke was approached by Waller as one of the first potential candidates for Task Force X.

1 Batman’s Metropolis Batcave Is Full Of Arkhamverse Easter Eggs

Batman’s Collected Many Of His Enemies’ Belongings

In pursuit of a way to stop Superman, Task Force X ventures into a Batcave that the Dark Knight built under the Metropolis Hydro Power Station, and as is to be expected, it is a treasure trove of Arkhamverse Easter Eggs. Holographic AR Challenges are on display in a call back to Batman: Arkham Origins training challenges, and holographic versions of Arkham Knight’s Batmobile, Wayne Manor, and the Batwing are seen next to computers.

A display case nearby has a collection of items taken from some of the Arkhamverse’s most prominent villains, much like the GCPD evidence locker in Batman: Arkham Knight. These items are as follows:

Enemy Referenced

Item Displayed

Mr Freeze

Helmet & freeze gun

Riddler

Riddler trophy and cane

Mad Hatter

Hat and Arkham Asylum pop-up book from Batman: Arkham Knight‘s Season of Infamy DLC

Black Mask

Mask

Anarchy

Mask

League of Assassins

Katana

Ventriloquist

Scarface puppet (It’s worth noting the Ventriloquist and Scarface never appeared as villains in the games but were referenced often through Easter eggs)

Electrocutioner

Shock gauntlets (These were repurposed by Batman in Batman: Arkham Origins)

Joker

Jack in the Box present

Scarecrow

Mask, glove with needle fingertips, and many Fear Toxin containers

While Riddler’s trophy and cane are on display in the Batcave, his hat can be found in the Hall of Justice before it’s taken over by A.R.G.U.S. The Scarecrow Easter egg also ties directly into Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League‘s Batman boss fight, as Batman uses Scarecrow’s Fear Toxin as a weapon against Task Force X.
