Suicide Squad cosplay 1 of 3: The Lady of the Night

I by chance have been coming across some cool stuff lately on the internet in regards to Nightshade in terms of  art work and these cool cosplay photos. It's nice to see this somewhat under rated character have their own little fan base. Did you know that Nightshade has been around since the mid sixties? In the old DC Universe she was probably best known for her long standing romantic relationship with Captain Atom along with her long term affiliation with The Suicide Squad and later with Shadowpact.
 I always liked how she was on one hand sweet to the point of almost being nurturing but at the same time had enough back bone to stick up to Waller when she felt like The Wall was crossing a line in terms of ethics. Out in the field she was very effective even when not using her shadow powers. She is an excellent hand to hand combatant and skilled in the art of spying and infiltration.
Nightshade is among the original Suicide Squad members from the John Ostrander era who has yet to make a debut in the DC reboot. Yet another fail for the new DC Universe.


Here's a 1974 Aparo homage to his 1960s Charlton assignment, Nightshade.

  2. Nice work. That spot at the end made me think you slipped one of those superheroines in bondage/peril pages in there:)

    Really nice work from the artist.

  3. I loved the last comic page :)
    For 1974, that was kind of hot.
    I never liked her first suit in SS, but that art pic under the photograf is gorgeous!

  4. Dude you have either been on a serious hunt to find Nightshade or just happen to run across her, good find either way. I've been looking for some new Squad cosplay and have turned up nothing.
