Juan’s parents emigrated to the United States so that Juan could start a new life and become whoever he wanted to be. And for Juan, that was a superhero. He was obsessed with the Justice League and planned to join them one day. While working at a tech warehouse, an accident injured his hand. Delighted, Juan figures that this will finally be his opportunity to become a superhero. He injects nanites into his hands, giving him the ability to place his hand against any locked object and make it automatically unlock. He tries out for the Justice League, suggesting the name Captain Key or Senor Sesame, but gets denied. Distraught and lacking money, he robs a bank but is foiled by the Justice League. Due to his ability to pick any lock, he has to be put in a hole in Belle Reve. Waller recruits him into a suicide squad mission against a mysterious alien invader. Since none of the team members care about him and have been constantly ingnoring him, and Killer Croc even wanting to eat him, he’ll die in the field because the unnamed characters always die. At least, he argues, that’s how it works in Star Trek. The team forces him to be bait for the alien Queen, and, already accepting that his death is inevitable, he doesn’t fight it. The Queen goes to suck his energy and suddenly starts to shrink until Juan is able to step on her and squish her. Waller reveals that the team isolating him was a setup to make him lose hope, as the alien fed on positivity and Juan’s massive amount of negativity ultimately led to the aliens defeat. Stating that she’s not “heartless,” Waller says that he’ll be generously compensated for the mission, first starting with giving him a better cell. His new “home” is shared with Killer Croc, who presumably eats him because “[he] doesn’t belong in this story.”
