For all its flaws, Suicide Squad had a much better male-to-female character ratio than most superhero films. Rather than, say, just the two women in the split Avengers team of Captain America: Civil War (Scarlet Witch and Black Widow), Suicide Squad featured four main female characters – Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, Katana and Enchantress. A couple of those might have been somewhat underwritten, but at least some attempt was made to prevent the film from becoming the testosterone fest that most comic book movies are.
