    Abner Krill (Earth-1: Post-Crisis)

    I'm a superhero! I'm a motherfucking superhero!
    — Polka-Dot Man's last words[src]

    Abner Krill, better known as the Polka-Dot Man, was a Metahuman criminal and a member of Task Force X.

    Biography[edit | hide | hide all]

    Early Life[edit | hide]

    Abner Krill was born to an unnamed woman and was raised among multiple brothers and sisters. However, they were all experimented on by their mother, who aspired her children to become superheroes. As a result, Krill was infected with an inter-dimensional virus, causing acidic polka-dot to appear under his skin.[1] Later, Krill accidentally murdered her mother when he thought she was going to hurt her.[2]

    Recruitment[edit | hide]

    In 2021, Amanda Waller recruited Krill to Task Force X and told him to meet his team, consisting of Bloodsport, Peacemaker, King Shark and Ratcatcher 2. The team was then sent to Corto Maltese in order to destroy all traces of something only known as Project Starfish.[1]

    Upon arriving on the island, Krill's faces started glowing in multiple colors, frightening his teammates. Krill reassured them and claimed to have a rash, which allowed them to continue their camping in the forest. While the team was sleeping, Krill's face started to get swollen and glowing in more colors. He quickly went behind a bush and expelled the dots from his body, returning to his normal appearance.[1]

    The Search[edit | hide]

    In the next morning, the team packed their equipment and went to a camp where Rick Flag was supposedly held in after being capture. With Smith and DuBois murdering all of the residents, the team immediately opened a blind and found Flag having tea with Sol Soria. The team lied and claimed not to have seen any of her allies, with Krill telling the truth quickly afterward. Soria was forced to forgive them and worked alongside the task force in search of Gaius Grieves.[1]

    The group walked across the mountains to the town and briefly stopped as Krill's face started glowing with polka-dots and Cazo got tired. They demanded answers on Krill's unusual appearance, and he explained that he was infected with an inter-dimensional virus by his mother. They then arrived at an army facility where they met Milton, a driver for the Freedom Fighters. Krill started changing into civilian clothes in order to infiltrate La Gatita Amable, the gentlemen's club that Grieves often visits.[1]

    As Grieves had yet to arrive, the team started ordering drinks and enjoyed themselves, with Krill dancing with individuals that appeared as his mother in his mind. They were then interrupted when Grieves entered the building, only to encounter another obstacle as the army arrived in search of Americans. DuBois, Flag and Smith stayed behind as distractions while Krill and Cazo brought Grieves back to the minibus.[1] Unfortunately, Nanaue was missing and Cleo searched for him across the city, Grieves then told Krill that he was aware of his past and attempted to manipulate him to give him the firearm. Krill was able to see through his lies and shot him in the ear, while Cazo returned with Nanaue.[2]

    With the help of Milton, they drove to the crash site of the army transport, where they found DuBois, Flag and Smith breaking out of the vehicle. Krill listened to the leaders and soon discussed their next moves: rescue Harley Quinn from captivity.[1]

    Operation Harley[edit | hide]

    Still in their civilian outfits, the team got into position as Flag and DuBois infiltrated the building. However, Quinn appeared next to them, revealing that she had escaped by herself without assistance. The team then resumed their objective to infiltrate Jotunheim.[1]

    Operation Jotunheim[edit | hide]

    The Suicide Squad vs Corto Maltese Armed Forces

    The team soon got into their respective suits, with the Thinker driving to Jotunheim and infiltrating the building. The team then stormed the building in the rain and was able to enter the lobby.[1]

    Under the commands of DuBois and Flag, Krill, Cazo and Milton followed the former to plant a series of explosives on the walls of Jotunheim. They were then confronted by a group of soldiers who shot and killed Milton. Despite being with Milton for the entire mission, the team were unable to recall him as Krill got emotional over the death of one of his teammates. In revenge, Krill shot a series of polka-dots at the soldiers and triggered the explosives on the floor, igniting a chain of explosions and destroying the building.[1]

    Thankfully, Krill, Quinn and DuBois were able to survive the fall and were able to hang on to the remaining constructions of the building. With the team back together, they ran away as Starro had escaped control. The team were able to protect themselves from Starro's extensions by covering their faces under Cazo's advice. Despite Starro's escape, Waller demanded the team to leave as the objective of the mission was completed. DuBois slowly walked away, only to be forced back by his compassion as Krill followed.[1]

    Waller back in Belle Reve was then knocked unconscious by Flo Crawley. The team followed Emilia Harcourt and John Economos' orders to evade Starro, fighting the injected individuals with their respective abilities. During the chaos, DuBois gave orders to the team, telling Krill that Starro is his mother. Out of rage, Krill released an extensive amount of polka-dot at the giant starfish, demobilizing it and destroying its leg. While celebrating for becoming a superhero, Krill was crushed to death by Starro's leg.[1]

    After the battle, Cazo walked to the remains of Krill and held a piece of his suit, mourning for her fallen teammate.[1]
