Villain Overview

I cherish peace with all my heart. I don't care how many men, women and children I need to kill to get it.
~ Peacemaker's most famous quote.

Christopher Smith, better known as Peacemaker, is a major character in the DC Extended Universe, serving as the secondary antagonist of The Suicide Squad and the titular main protagonist of Peacemaker.

He is a deranged vigilante who believes in ensuring peace and liberty at all costs no matter how many lives he has to kill or horrible acts he has to commit in order to do so. He joined Task Force X as part of Bloodsport's second team thanks to Amanda Waller offering him a pardon for his crimes if he were to remove all traces of evidence of her involvement with Project Starfish.

While he struck up a rapport with the team, he eventually turned on them when they learned the mission's true nature wasn't to destroy Project Starfish but rather cover up USA's involvement with it. In the attempt to complete his own bargain with Waller, Smith murdered team leader Rick Flag when Flag attempted to make public the incriminating evidence linking USA to Project Starfish, but shortly after he shot by Bloodsport.

Bloodsport used the evidence of Project Starfish to blackmail Waller into letting the team go away free but Peacemaker wasn't included in the bargain due to his previous betrayal. Smith was taken to a hopsital to recover for 5 months, after which he was forced to return to Task Force X in order to participate in the mission to destroy Project Butterfly.

He was portrayed by John Cena, who also played himself during his time as a wrestler, Baron Draxum in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Agent Jack Burns in Bumblebee and Jakob Toretto in F9. As a young man, he was portrayed by Quinn Bennett.

Personality

Peacemaker. What a joke.
~ Rick Flag's last words before succumbing to his wounds at the hands of Peacemaker, showing his disdain for the hypocrisy in his ideology.

Peacemaker is a rude, condescending, obnoxious, and abrasive man who is very literal-minded, although in his own twisted way does try to fight the good fight. He is obsessed with peace and obtaining it all costs, although his way of achieving it contradicts this mindset completely. He is also ruthless, willing to do anything and hurt anyone to get what he wants even if he doesn't want to hurt the person, as demonstrated from the way he talks to Ratcatcher 2 before preparing to kill her. Peacemaker was also very literal-minded and quite overzealous and bombastic in the way he conducted himself.

Peacemaker does have his good qualities however as he does genuinely believe in and want to achieve world peace although goes about it insanely and he does get along with most of his teammates and is genuinely nice to them until he feels they endanger his mission. However, his good qualities are far outweighed by his delusional ideology of achieving world peace through his twisted actions, going so far as to openly admitting his willingness to kill innocent people including children for the sake of his mission. Furthermore, he was reluctant to fight Rick Flag, asking that he hand over the data drive and not make them fight, and later had visible shock and regret over killing him.

After the events of The Suicide Squad Smith began to reflect on his actions: he became completely aware of his many failings and how no one considers him a hero, feeling that he deserves it for pushing everyone away and killing Rick Flag, something he still feels intense guilt for. Despite previously saying he'd be willing to kill children, when Peacemaker is ordered to kill Goff's kids he cannot make himself do it, showing that he still has some form of morality. In the end of his new mission, after killing his father, the cow and the Butterflies, he chose to live up to his name and be a more heroic figure also as a penance for killing Rick Flag.

Christopher is also a huge fan of 1980s Glam Rock and Hair Metal.

Appearance

Peacemaker is a tall, handsome, muscular man with fair skin, brown eyes, slicked back brown hair, and thick brown eyebrows. He is usually seen in his supervillain get-up which consisted of a red short sleeved shirt with blue accents and his logo in the center, white trousers tucked into blue combat boots, he also wore blue gloves and a blue ammo belt. Peacemaker also usually wore his helmet, a metallic chrome piece designed to protect his head which covered the top half of his face, according to Bloodsport it resembled a toilet seat more than anything else.

Quotes

Nothing like a bloodbath to start the day.
~ Peacemaker in the trailer.
Starfish is a slang term for a butthole. Think there's any connection?
~ Peacemaker to Amanda Waller during the briefing.
You're the leader! You're supposed to be decisive!
~ Peacemaker to Bloodsport on his leadership.
If this whole beach was completely covered in dicks, and somebody said I had to eat every dick until the beach was clean for liberty, I would say no problemo!
~ Peacemaker to Bloodsport.
Ratcatcher II: Why would someone put penises all over the beach?
Peacemaker: Who knows why madmen do what they do!
~ Ratcatcher II and Peacemaker.
Bloodsport: No one likes a show-off.
Peacemaker: Unless what they're showing off is dope as f--k.
Bloodsport: F--k. That's true.
~ Bloodsport and Peacemaker developing their rivalry.
You gotta be kidding me! You're gonna risk the entire mission for a mental defective dressed as a court jester?
~ Peacemaker to Rick Flag on deciding to rescue Harley Quinn.
It's not a toilet seat, it's a beacon of freedom!
~ Peacemaker to Bloodsport on his helmet.
That information gets out it causes an international incident! Keepin' the peace is worth any price, including the life of a hero like yours, sir, so please... don't make me do this.
~ Peacemaker explaining his betrayal to Rick Flag.
Peacemaker: I told that information can't get out! F**k!
Ratcatcher 2: So, okay, okay, destroy the hard drive. Why kill me!?
Peacemaker: Because I'm thorough. Sorry kid.
~ Peacemaker to Ratcatcher 2 before preparing to kill her.
I made a vow to have peace, no matter how many people I have to kill to get it
~ Peacemaker.
I... I used to think God put me here for a purpose. For peace. And I always said I didn't care how many people I needed to torture or kill to get it, but... you know, lately, I just think I'm a f---in' maniac, like... I don't know, I'm having... feelings about things that.
~ Peacemaker lamenting on himself following the recent events in Jotunheim.
The dove of peace, my trademark. It's engraved on all my weapons, my tomahawk, my sword, my blowdarts, my pistol!
~ Peacemaker on the dove being his symbol.
You wanna know why I don't have a coterie of supervillains? My coterie of supervillains is six-feet-f**king-under!
~ Peacemaker getting angry at his father's infuriating old neighbor when the latter compares him with the real superheroes.
He's a jackass! Who wrestles with murderers dressed like clowns and throws them in prison! So they can break out of prison and then murder more people. Riddle me this, how many people you think Batman's indirectly murdered by being too much of a candy-ass not to kill these fools who clearly need to be smoked once and for all, you wrinkly Sharpei-looking, dementia-infested f--k?
~ Peacemaker expressing how much he despises that Batman never kills his enemies even though they deserve it.
You killed my brother! You killed Keith! And You're only right about one thing, I am a piece of shit! I'm a piece of shit for listening to you for all those years! I'm a piece of shit for not killing you in your sleep!
~ Peacemaker finally stands up to his father, beating him up and blaming him for what he has become before killing him once and for all.
You're late, you fucking dickheads! Go fuck another fish, asshole.
~ Peacemaker to the Justice League after the death of Butterflies' cow.

Trivia

  • This is the first live action adaptation of the Peacemaker character.
  • John Cena's description of Peacemaker as a "douchey Captain America" caught on with many fans and has became something of a mild meme.
  • F9 and The Suicide Squad, both of which John Cena starred in, came out in 2021.
  • James Gunn originally offered the role of Peacemaker to Dave Bautista as he had done previous films with him, but Bautista had turned it down in for his role in Army of the Dead.
  • Peacemaker can be considered a foil to Bloodsport, Rick Flag and Superman:
    • To Bloodsport: both have virtually the same backstory and overlapping combat skills, something Bloodsport even points out. They have an immediate distaste for each other and spend most of their time contesting. However while Bloodsport eventually becomes the team's leader and warms to his comrades, Peacemaker is ultimately loyal to his twisted ideals above all else;
    • To Rick Flag: both are highly patriotic American heroes, but unlike Peacemaker's patriotism, Flag's patriotism doesn't blind him to his country's abuses, leading him to oppose Peacemaker's attempts to cover up U.S. involvement in the Starro experiments. Peacemaker even gets Flag's old job;
    • To Superman: both are patriotic, muscular men that wears a symbol of benevolence on his chest. Both have also killed a military man that would turn on his own superiors out of principle and have been seriously injured by Bloodsport. A difference being that Superman only killed Zod because he had no other choice, while Peacemaker killed Rick Flag despite having the option to either cripple him or destroy his leverage.
  • How Peacemaker hallucinates his father is similar to how his teammate, Polka Dot Man, hallucinates his mother.
