The 7 Deadliest Assassins In DC Comics
In a world full of superheroes, it takes some next-level assassins to get things done on the dark side. For every hero who spent years honing their fighting abilities, there are expert killers who have no problem breaking the law to get things done.

Whether it’s fighting with their hands or using a blade of some sort or a firearm, these assassins are some of the deadliest and most tactically proficient characters in all of comics. Comic fans often say that Batman is the most powerful, non-superpowered figure, but all of these assassins have made him sweat or bleed over the years in the pages of DC Comics. In addition to these individual killers, there are also secret organizations like the League of Assassins that work to help figures like Ra’s al Ghul commit their ancient plans. In short, the DC Universe is full of assassins and they have no problem taking what they want.
