Corey Pitzner, otherwise known as The Detachable Kid or T.D.K, is a minor character in the 2021 film The Suicide Squad, the tenth installment of the DC Extended Universe.
He is a member of Task Force X who has the ability to detach his own limbs and have them move independently and act as melee weapons who was imprisoned in Belle Reve at some point. He joined Task Force X on their mission to Corto Maltese as part of Rick Flag's first team, but was injured after the Corto Maltese soldiers attacked the team.
Not much is known about Cory Pitzner past, but he is a metahuman who learned that he had the ability to detach his limbs from his body. He also learned that he could regrow his limbs, and that he could move his detached limbs possibly by concentration. At some point before the 2020s, Pitzner turned to crime by using his abilities, and decided to take on the name "The Detachable Kid", or T.D.K. for short. He would be apprehend by either law enforcement or A.R.G.U.S., and was sentenced to Belle Reve Federal Penitentiary, a prison where powerful criminals and superpowered beings were imprisoned.
The Suicide Squad
In 2021, Pitzner was recruited into Task Force X by Amanda Waller to destroy all evidence of Project Starfish in Jotunheim, a laboratory that the project was being held. He was part of Rick Flag's first team, alongside fellow criminals Harley Quinn, Javelin, Mongal, Savant, Blackguard and Weasel. While flying to Corto Maltese, Pitzner spoke with his teammates on what species Weasel was, and he believed that he was a Afghan hound. After landing on the beach, Blackguard revealed that he betrayed the team to the Corto Maltese Armed Forces so he could escape, but he was immediately killed and causing a firefight to break out. T.D.K. used his powers to attack several Corto Maltese soldiers, but his limbs were shot, causing him to reeve in pain and later faint from blood loss. Pitzner was left in critical condition as Rick Flag and Harley Quinn were the only survivors of massacre, but Quinn would help the second Task Force X team complete the mission.
Pitzner showed himself to be somewhat arrogant, as he was enthusiastic to show off his abilities to his teammates during the battle on the beach.
