Suicide Squad is less than 2 months away and the hype is at an absolute high. With more and more stills being released each day, it's no wonder that everybody wants to know if the film is actually good or not! There are 9 members of the Suicide Squad and there is a few that people don't really know enough yet! Well fear not, because I want to look into the history of the lesser known characters in the team. First up, Enchantress!

1. She made her first appearance in 1966!

She first appeared in Strange Adventures #187 back in April of 1966, when she was created by Bob Haney and artist, Howard Purcell. She was always planned to be an anti-hero, right from when she was created.

2. She is really powerful

Enchantress is one of those characters that has powers that could do real damage. Not only can she manipulate magical energy and teleport, but she can heal people also! The coolest of all her powers is the "possession of Nightwitch's 'Herne-Ramsgate Cauldron', which allows her to find almost every magical creature in the DC Universe" (

3. She's not always evil

June Moone is the girl behind Enchantress and she's actually a kind-hearted woman and not the evil sorceress we all know. When June becomes possessed by the entity Enchantress, she turns to the evil anti-hero.

4. She takes on Supergirl in the comics!

Back in the 80's, this pair had some encounters but Supergirl came out on top twice. This kind of fight is what I'd like to see on the TV show, Supergirl!

5. Cara Delevingne is nervous for the role

Cara is reasonably new to acting with very few films under her belt, so it's no surprise that she would be nervous starring in one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. Her biggest film so far is the 2015 indie, Paper Towns where she did hold her own.

So that's it guys! Let me know if you have any more facts about Enchantress, and for more Suicide Squad articles, follow my page!
