Cleo Cazo src

Cleo Cazo, also known as the Ratcatcher or Ratcatcher II, was a sweet and endearing member of Task Force X with the ability to control rats. Part of the primary team sent to Corto Maltese, her kind nature allowed her to become good friends with many of the members of the team, in particular King Shark and Bloodsport. She was also integral in destroying Starro, and escaped the Force with her teammates.[1]

Cleo Cazo was born in Portugal to a criminal known as the Ratcatcher, a drug addicted genius who built a special device that allowed him to control rats to steal or do any number of tasks for Cleo and him. Despite his imperfections, Cleo loved her father dearly, and their bond was likely the main source of her kind and compassionate nature. Unfortunately, when Cleo was a young girl, her father died of a drug overdose, leaving her alone with his device and his rats. Taking the name "Ratcatcher II", she moved to the U.S. to start a new life, but was arrested for armed bank robbery, with the police counting the rats as a weapon. Ratcatcher was incarcerated in the Belle Reve Correctional Center, where she was drafted by Amanda Waller into joining the black-ops unit Task Force X, better known as the Suicide Squad, in exchange for time off her sentence.

Innocent among the insidious

In 2021, Ratcatcher was sent on a mission with the Squad to Corto Maltese to destroy the powerful and dangerous Project Starfish, which, unbeknownst to most of the team, the U.S. government had secretly funded, with the mission's true purpose being to destroy all evidence of their involvement in it. Ratcatcher's team was lead by Bloodsport, and consisted of herself, Peacemaker, King Shark, and the Polka Dot Man.[1]
