Slipknot is an enemy of Firestorm with adhesive ropes. He was later pressed into the service of the Suicide Squad.


Christopher Weiss was believed to have once worked as a chemist in the Southern United States, where he developed the supremely powerful adhesive that covers his ropes.[1]

With his new ropes, Slipknot became a minion of the 2000 Committee, who sent him to murder Firestorm and kidnap Lorraine Reilly. Firestorm was able to foil this plot and save Reilly.[2]

Slipknot later joined other villains in another attempt to kill Firestorm, but he was defeated and ended up in prison.[3]

Recruited for a mission with the Suicide Squad, Slipknot was cajoled into trying to desert by Captain Boomerang, but had his arm blown off by a bomb shackled to it. [4]
