A program to save money by using expendable inmates instead of valuable soldiers for extreme missions is not a unique idea but one that does spark much interest. In the spirit of the up and coming movie, "Suicide Squad," I will reveal to you, my dear reader, who I would place on my squad and why.

Leader

The squad will need a guide. I could place a valuable, trained soldier to lead them, but I'd rather put a man who is not known for muscle, looks, or even skills in weapons but rather the way he whips his tongue. I choose The Governor.


What's in a name?

He won't let anyone get close enough to know his true name but he will manipulate his way on the team. He will watch his teammates and study their skills. He'll turn you against your own friend and kill you when you don't. He will organize them to move as one and add or remove anyone who isn't beneficial to his goals. He's the most dangerous man on this team because he'll think faster than you can attack and has all ready laid a trap for you.

Assassin

Being the genius that The Governor is, he will need a certain list of people. In this particular prison compound is housed one the violent people on the globe. He seemingly can't be stopped, but the Governor knows his weakness: Drowning and his mother, Pamela. I'm talking of course of Crystal Lake's own victim and maker of victims, Jason Vorhees.

The Governor is used to rotting killers but Jason is different; he can reason. He can open doors, ignore noises to pursue a victim, and he can make decisions on weapons to use. Placed under the name of "Agent Friday", Vorhees is nearly unstoppable. He can take mass amounts of damage and seemingly not feel a bit of it. He is persistent in taking down his targets. He is incredibly strong as with the example of him swinging a sleeping bag stuffed with a young woman against a tree to kill her. He can't be negotiated with or bribed but as Freddy Kruger discovered, there is a fear of drowning prevalent within him. Jason still holds his childhood fear which would be of good use to the Governor.

Engineer

Vorhees would be the motivational tool to persuade a self-righteous maniac, like John, to join The Governor. I'm speaking of course about John Kramer a.k.a. Jigsaw

He doesn't scare easily but he is as human as the Governor. Yet, he would see the logic in surrendering to a being like Jason Vorhees to follow the Governor in whatever mad scheme he's hatching. John though is particular about how and why. He and the Governor would engage in deep discussions about how to fulfill such goals of completing a mission then, more than likely, turning on the powers that be to obtain their freedom. John would be intrigued by the tasks of creating traps and altering digital programs. I mean, it's just a game to him after all.

Muscle

No one would see this man coming, nor would they perceive him as not a real man. A mistake that the Governor would definitely take advantage of as Jigsaw's first task: Reprogramming the T-800, nicknamed "The Terminator".

It's scary enough to put Vorhees under the Governor's control but now reprogram the Terminator to be a loyal protector of the Governor would put even Vorhees in check. He obeys without question and logically strategizes his course for mission completion. He appears as a man and bleeds like one. His wounds heal over time and he never ever quits. His strength and knowledge of weapons, investigative tactics. and machines would prove useful in hijacking any military grade armament.

Recon

It's always important to have someone who knows the ins and outs of the underground worlds: cartels, weapons trade, and the people behind it. A woman can make the best weapon in a world of men - especially one with a tough as nails core. She's not the Den Mother but they do call her MaMA.

She not only knows the underworld, she ran it until Judge Dredd stopped her. Madeline Madrigal has been through a lot since she was a prostitute at 14. Her face bares the consequence of letting her pimp find out she had plans on leaving. She let him know that was bad by "feminizing" him. I'll just let that soak in. Now, there's this Governor guy who wants to help her. Why not? She doesn't have any plans. If this is what she has to do to get her freedom, she'll play along. Just don't get in her way. She has a plan to recruit some new military tech and get some of her clan friends to join.

Tank

Every team needs a home run hitter, a heavy gunner, or someone who can just make some noise. Tanks do that but they're limiting. Now, we can use one of the newest lines of military tech OCP can offer. With a little help from MaMA on tracking it down, Jason killing the security, and the Terminator locating the controls to hack it, I think Mr. Kramer can get in the mind of ED-209.

He's a chicken walking nightmare with firepower. The Governor took on Rick and his friends with a tank as he stormed the prison in Georgia. Imagine with what he can do with a walking tank, dual rapid fire cannons, side mounted rockets, and intellect? ED can take orders and be programmed to power on if threatened by a weapon. With this machine on the team, little can stand against it.

Conclusion

No organization could allow such a group to grow without the fear that they may decide to form a common goal. The Governor is a great speaker who could easily motivate the sentient members into following him into further glory. They may hunt down the Necronomicon and summon the Army of Darkness.

They may seek a powerful weapon of extermination. With the powerhouses by him, the Governor could easily get in to Hangar 51 and locate the Arc of the Covenant.

Whatever the goal, the truth is, when such evil is put together, eventually one will turn on the other. It would be better to separate when the job is done but the Governor doesn't feel at home unless he's leading people. Sadly, these specific people don't like to take orders for long. Who will throw the stone first? Maybe you know.
