Deadshot

If the manual to one of the greatest superhero games of the 20th century is to be believed, Sunsoft's video game adaptation of Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film boasted an incredible lineup of DC B-listers. In addition to a climactic Joker fight, Batman also fought Firebug, Killer Moth, the KGBeast, Electrocutioner, Maxie Zeus, Heat Wave, and – yes – Deadshot. Thing is, you probably don't remember confronting any of those characters. It seems apparent that Sunsoft's manual writer grabbed a copy of the Who's Who of the DC Universe handbook, slapped names onto any boss or regular grunt who seemed to fit, and called it a day. As a result, the character throughout the game who shoots at you with a pistol is Deadshot. Sometimes more than one of him is onscreen at the same time. Doesn't matter – it's still Will Smith trying to ruin your day, each and every one of ‘em.
