Rictus was a Metahuman assassin.
Joining the League of Assassins, Rictus became a well known assassin, likely due to his Metahuman prowess. Rictus later aided Bronze Tiger in training Jason Todd, though the boy left the League shortly afterwards.
Rictus refused to join Leviathan and after the Battle of Gotham City, his life returned to relative normalcy. Once again working with Bronze Tiger, Rictus helped bring Jason back to the League to fight the Untitled.
