Ben Turner. The Bronze Tiger. Two counts manslaughter. Twenty years without parole. Suffers from delusions of being a graduate of the..."League of Assassins." Also thinks he's an agent of several intel services. All of which deny these claims.
~ Jeremiah Arkham about Bronze Tiger.

Bronze Tiger (real name: Benjamin Turner) is a villain and anti-hero from DC Comics. He has been a member of both the League of Assassins and the Suicide Squad.

History

Ben Turner comes from the Suicide Squad, setting him up to become the team's leader, but he ends up the team's second-in-command under Rick Flag. On the team's first mission, the Tiger faces Ravan, who he brutally cripples, but refuses to kill. Turner develops a relationship with Vixen, while Flo Crawley, a part of the Squad's support crew, nurses a crush for him. Meeting Ravan again later, Turner convinces him to join the Squad, and the two become an effective fighting duo.

As Turner is confronted for his actions by his superiors, and in the ensuing meeting, Turner's mind snaps. He flees, traveling back to the East (leaving Vixen in the process), where he spends some time as a janissary. Shortly afterwards, the Suicide Squad is disbanded and Amanda Waller is sent to jail.

In the team's last mission, the Squad struggles to free a small island nation from the tyranny of it's seemingly immortal ruler. The team must pass through a forest known for causing hallucinations. While the others experience their own mind-trips, Bronze Tiger faces himself. Defeating himself, and thereby exorsizing his demons, Turner once again becomes a complete person. The tyrant is later defeated by Waller.

Powers and Abilities

Bronze Tiger has no meta-human powers, however he is a master of martial arts, considered one of the top five martial artists in the DC Universe. He has mastered various martial arts styles, such as Taekwondo, Jiu-jitsu, Aikido, Karate, and Kung fu. He is considered on par with Lady Shiva and has bested Batman more than once.

Television History

Batman: The Brave and the Bold

  • Bronze Tiger appears in Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Formerly Master Wong Fei's best student and protector of a small village, he holds much pride as a Martial Artist. In the episode "Return of the Fearsome Fangs!", he helps Batman battle the Terrible Trio in a reluctant partnership after they killed their sensei of whom both he, the Caped Crusader, and the trio trained under. He takes in the power of the Wudang Totem (taking it with what Batman called Wong Fei's most important lesson: "When outmatched, cheat".) during a fight with the empowered threesome, turning into a tiger. He is reverted to normal after the fight, deciding to reopen Wong Fei's school, and having a friendly rematch with Batman. Additionally, Bronze Tiger appears in a non-speaking cameo in part two of the two part episode "The Siege of Starro!", as one of the heroes possessed by Starro and later reappears once he has broken free of Starro's mind control. Finally, he appears briefly in the opening sequence of the series, among several other well-known heroes.

Main article: Bronze Tiger (Arrowverse)

Michael Jai White portrays Bronze Tiger in the Arrow episode "Identity". In the episode, an African American man is contacted by China White to combat Arrow. In addition to his martial artist abilities, he has two sets of gauntlets with three claws that make him very formidable. He is later defeated by an electrified-trick arrow. He later appears in "Tremors" where he is freed from prison to retrieve a prototype of Malcolm Merlyn's Earthquake device. Felicity confirms that his name is Ben Turner and that he does go by the alias of Bronze Tiger, which she thinks is a bad name since tigers aren't bronze. He retrieves the device but is soon after defeated by Arrow and Roy Harper. Upon his return to prison he is approached by Amanda Waller with a proposal to work off part of his sentence by being recruited into a "squad." White appears in the episode Suicide Squad as a member of the team.

Excerpt from Scribblenauts Unmasked: One of the greatest martial artists on earth, Ben Turner trained under the tutelage of O-Sensei and became a target for recruitment by the League of Assassins. When he turned the league down, they kidnapped him, forcing him to wear a bronze tiger mask that made him lose all control, letting the league use him as an assassin. Ben was caught King Faraday and Nightshade who brought him to Amanda Waller who offered him redemption by inviting him to join the Suicide Squad.
