Seeing as Moviepilot have just launched an awesome contest, I have promptly decided to enter it. That's, uh, pretty much it.
So, without further ado, here are my four vicious villains that I think would make a devastatingly dastardly force.
1. Ra's Al Ghul (DC)
What is an evil force without a calm, collected and equally brutal leader? It's, uh, not much, that's what. A master tactician and an expert in trickery, this man not only commands an army of lethal assassins but possesses incredible swordsmanship and an overwhelming sense of authority.
As the leader of my team listed below, I believe Ra's would efficiently co-ordinate the group and make sure mistakes were not made - and if they were... he'd make sure they weren't ever made again.
2. Superior Iron Man (Marvel)
Before you lose your respective heads, please hear me out. After the events of the AXIS storyline in the Marvel Comic Universe, Tony Stark's mind polarity is somewhat reversed, therefore making him quite the villain, or at best anti-hero.
The notorious tech-savvy can opener sits well in this team as the resident researcher and game-improver. A lab genius capable of providing vital resources for his colleaugues, without someone this talented the squad would surely be far less effective. And hey, it's freaking Iron Man.
3. Lockdown (Transformers)
Okay, so as far as being a nearly-unstoppable badass goes, Lockdown has gotta be somewhere near the top of the list. This dude has a gun that comes OUT OF HIS FACE. It's also a gun which took out a formidably strong autobot, Ratchet, in one hit. So yeah, this guy can deal some pretty serious damage.
What's more, every team needs a guy who can blast holes in buildings and bust down doors, right? Right. So, instead of opting for the obvious muscly-type, I've gone for what's essentially a weaponized and robotic Hulk. Cool, huh? His futuristic tech could even enhance Stark's squad-based research, and enhance the group further.
What's also great is this dude commands a super high-tech spaceship, and can transform into a super-fast super-car. He's therefore capable of fast travel in vehicle form mid-combat, and can transport the squad literally anywhere in the universe. You think my team only dominates Earth? No... we're taking over everything.
4. Han Cho Bai (RED 2)
This guy rounds the team off perfectly. We have a leader, a genius inventor, a brute and weapon-filled force, and now a lethal assassin who specializes in the use of modern weapons.
Earning the accolade of 'the Marksman' in my line-up, this fella covers the team from a distance - but is also unafraid to get up close and personal. He incorporates perfectly into possible missions requiring a stealthy aspect - this assassin really adds a whole new level of versatility to this lot.
Plus, pair this guy with Stark's tech, which has been advanced by studying Lockdown's alien armory, then train him further in combat with Ra's' help, and this guy would be even more incredible than he already is.
That's it, folks! I hope you've enjoyed my line-up!
Until next time :)
