While the story shares many similarities with DC’s Suicide Squad, it differs in one key area, namely the intent of the supervillains. The difference in the intentions of the members of the two groups is fundamental to the super thieves not only being more likeable than the Suicide Squad, but also making them the super-powered anti-hero group that DC might have wanted when creating the Suicide Squad in the first place.

They are bad people who have done bad things, but now they chose to do a little good, of their own free will they want to do it, and in the process they save themselves from having to do bad again. It is unlikely that a similar or even potential change of heart will be found among the suicide squadmembers of . In fact, this does super thieves the best team of anti-heroes DC wishes they had.
