What if you could get together a team of outlaws from any fictional universe and toss them into your own Suicide Squad lineup? Who would make the cut? Which universes would you choose? It's a fun question to think about, and when it comes down to it, here's the group of misfit villains I'd want to go on insane missions together:
I'm sure this will be a popular selection for most people, but there's a good reason for that: Boba Fett is basically the Star Wars version of Deadshot. He's a ruthless bounty hunter with incredible skill, plus he's more of a lone wolf who might begrudgingly agree to lead a team of criminals if there was a bomb implanted in his neck. He's not evil, just amoral and self-serving; and those are key qualities of a Suicide Squad member. Plus, it'd be a good excuse to get some Jedi in to stop him.
Some of you might be asking, "Who's Mr. Glass?" For those of you who aren't, you're probably asking "Why would he be in the Suicide Squad?" Well, what Mr. Glass, a man with bones as fragile as - well, glass - lacks in physical capabilities, he more than makes up for with sheer intelligence. Similar to the Suicide Squad member James Gordon, Mr. Glass is crazy, brilliant, and an awesome character who, like all Suicide Squad members, will always have his own agenda; even if he's bound by a neck-bomb. And come on: who doesn't love Samuel L. Jackson?
And of course, the Squad needs that monster-esque character of unpredictable destruction. The Xenomorph would be interesting because it would have to be controlled, which would be extremely difficult for the team. Its vast array of terrifying abilities (especially the way it reproduces) would make the Suicide Squad a real force to be reckoned with. And with no recurring enemy (except maybe the Predators), the heroes going up against the squad (Bruce Willis and the Jedi Knights) would be uo against this behemoth for the first time.
Finally, I'd throw in Bellatrix Lestrange as the magical character, as well as a foil for Harley Quinn. Like the other characters, she'd be her own kind of unpredictable and would bring sort of a dark comedy to it all with her banter and disturbed mannerisms.
