Pride Profile: Savant. This Gail Simone and Ed Benes creation debuted in Birds of Prey#56 as a one-time vigilante, turned to crime, turned back to vigilantism under Oracle’s direction. Genius, martial arts master, computer whiz with a facility for languages, Savant also has a chemical imbalance in his brain that effects how he processes information. That included the fact that his confident and bodyguard Creote was in love with him. Babs convinced Creote to tell Savant, and when he does they’re both surprised that Savant reciprocates. For more Savant, check out the upcoming The Suicide Squad movie.
I think this should read Birds of Prey, not Secret Six. AFAIK, he was never in Secret Six, but was a regular starting with Simone taking over Birds of Prey in 56, as referenced. (The masked version of him also appeared in a handful of issues of the early New 52 Suicide Squad run.)
I find it hilarious that in the comics Savant is illustrated as this younger beefcake of a guy, and when it’s decided to add him in a movie, who does writer/director use to play him? Michael freaking Rooker.
