DC’s Polka-Dot Man: 5 Things You Should Know About The Suicide Squad From The Comics

Polka dot man who once lost the use of his polka dots after going broke

To recall to Two-Face, do you know that without his coin, Harvey Dent is pretty much a lost, helpless ball of indecision? Essentially, the equivalent of this would be for Polka-Dot Man to lose the use of his Utility Points, which is exactly what happened in the first edition of Batman: GCPD in 1996.

Abner Krill was unemployed and penniless for years. Desperate for a redeeming crime thriller, he couldn’t afford to create any more useful polka dots and forced him to use a baseball bat to run a jewelry store. Gotham City detective Harvey Bullock beat Polka-Dot Man out of his greatest annoyance with costumed criminals instead of arresting him for the robbery. Upon recovery, Krill fell deep into alcoholism and accepted living his years as a joke in Gotham’s criminal underbelly.
