“Christopher Smith, also known as the Peacemaker, is a hypocritical, egotistical, self-righteous and zealous vigilante who believes in achieving peace at any cost no matter how many people he has to kill for it in the process. While he struck up a rapport with the team, he eventually turned on them to complete their intended mission when they learned it was all a cover-up for the U.S. government’s mistake. In the attempt to complete the mission, Smith murdered team leader Rick Flag, and was sent into a coma by teammate and rival Bloodsport. When comatose Smith was recovered from Corto Maltese, he was sent to an American hospital, where the mission coordinators of the Force, John Economos and Emilia Harcourt, awaited his awakening, preparing to send him on another, more dangerous mission.”

Other details

James Gunn wrote the entire first season in 8 weeks during COVID quarantine out of pure boredom, not actually believing the series would ever get picked up. It is the first DC Extended Universe (DCEU) television series, a spin-off from the 2021 film The Suicide Squad.


Peacemaker gets a new team and a new mission, and he has to get used to working with a team while also dealing with his own past and problems.
