Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr. (born March 13, 1972), better known by his stage name Common (formerly Common Sense), is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, and poet from Chicago, Illinois. Common debuted in 1992 with the album Can I Borrow a Dollar? and maintained a significant underground following into the late 1990s, after which he gained notable mainstream success through his work with the Soulquarians. In 2011, Common launched Think Common Entertainment, his own record label imprint, and, in the past, has released music under various other labels such as Relativity, Geffen and GOOD Music, among others.

Common's first major-label album, Like Water for Chocolate, received widespread critical acclaim and tremendous commercial success. His first Grammy Award was in 2003, winning Best R&B Song for "Love of My Life", with Erykah Badu. Its popularity was matched by May 2005's Be, which was nominated for Best Rap Album, at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Common was awarded his second Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for "Southside" (featuring Kanye West), from his July 2007 album Finding Forever. His best-of album, Thisisme Then: The Best of Common, was released on November 27, 2007.

Common won the 2015 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, and the 2015 Academy Award for Best Original Song, for his song "Glory" from the 2014 film Selma, in which he co-starred as 1960s Civil Rights Movement leader James Bevel. Common's acting career also includes starring significant roles in the films Smokin' Aces, Street Kings, American Gangster, Wanted, Terminator Salvation, Date Night, Just Wright, Happy Feet Two, New Year's Eve and Run All Night. He also narrated the award-winning documentary Bouncing Cats, about one man's efforts to improve the lives of children in Uganda through hip-hop/b-boy culture. He starred as Elam Ferguson on the AMC western television series Hell on Wheels.

Avec la mort de Superman, Amanda Waller, qui dirige le programme ARGUS, craint l'apparition du prochain méta-humain qui pourrait attaquer l'humanité. Pour prévenir cette possibilité, elle fait adopter le projet Task Force X (Force Spéciale X), visant à utiliser une équipe de criminels aux capacités hors-normes pour répondre aux menaces, de façon non officielle. Elle a déjà plusieurs noms sur sa liste, comme le tireur d'élite Floyd Lawton / « Deadshot », capturé par Batman en lui rappelant la vie qu'il fait mener à sa fille Zoe ; la psychopathe Harley Quinn, psychologue tombée sous le charme du Joker, arrêtée par Batman alors qu'elle était coincée dans une voiture qui coulait dans une rivière ; le tueur monstrueux Waylon Jones, surnommé « Killer Croc » ; Digger Harkness, un voleur australien capturé par Flash alors qu'il dérobait des diamants ; et El Diablo, un gangster mexicain doué de pyrotechnie qui s'est rendu lui-même après avoir involontairement brûlé sa femme et ses enfants. Elle a déjà recruté le Colonel Rick Flag, soldat émérite. Quand Amanda présente le projet au Général Edwards, elle lui montre aussi les pouvoirs de l'Enchanteresse, un être mystique qui habite dans le corps de l'archéologue June Moon. Amanda Waller arrive à la contrôler car elle détient le cœur de la sorcière, et elle s'est arrangée pour faire en sorte que Rick Flag et June Moon deviennent amants afin de manipuler le soldat.
