L is for Larvanaut

Spinning out of the Our Worlds At War event, Sgt. Rock lead a version of the Suicide Squad in the early 2000's. I've never actually read this run, but have read a bit about it. The collected volume is on my wishlist. 

Larvanaut was a part of this short lived version of the squad. Not much is known about him or his abilities. He has bluish-purple skin, had large metal gauntlets, had a prehensile tail, and had some sort of device over his mouth. In his first and only mission he and his team were sent to find the queen of a hive of advanced killer ants. Larvanaut was the tracker and after locating the the targets he abandoned the group. However, he was able to kill the queen and complete the mission. However he was considered expendable and was devoured by the rest of the killer ants.
