The suicide squad is a team of villains from the DC universe. The team is held in prison, but are forced to undertake missions for the government using their skills. With a film coming in 2016, Moviepilot is holding a contest to find the best possible team of villains. And whilst it would be easy to pick Darth Vader or Voldemort, I'm going to try to make a few funky selections for the team. I'm also going to limit myself to one character per universe.
1. The Public Face/Leader
This is a team of psychotic lunatics. Your leader needs to be a level headed kind of guy, who is also charismatic enough to be the public face of the team. And who is more charismatic than The Rock?
Agent 23- Get Smart
Get Smart is not a great film, and although the rock was entertaining he wasn't enough to save the film. But agent 23 is perfect for a suicide squad. He's a highly trained badass spy and also capable of living a double life. Also given that he is The Rock, you can bet that he'll be able to demand respect and exude charisma. Suicide Squad does something wrong? Put the Rock on TV and he'll be able to charm his way out of the situation. Other members don't want to help? Get the Rock to yell at them, they'll listen. This trained spy is a perfect suicide squad addition.
2. The Soldier- Deadpool
Alright, I know I said I'd be original but it's too tempting to pick Deadpool. He's absolutely perfect. He's unkillable, has absolutely no moral compass and will do anything as long as he gets a paid afterwards. I'm keeping this short because everyone knows that Deadpool is awesome
3. The Stealth
Sometimes you need a sneak attack, a bad ass fighter who is also difficult to capture and small enough to sneak around unnoticed. Also handy is the ability to be underestimated. So, someone small, someone deadly, someone who doesn't look like the killing machine that they really are. I can't think of anyone better than...
The Rabbit of Caerbannog - Monty Python and the Holy Grail
This beast is small but deadly. Underestimated at first by Arthur and his knights, he slaughters Athur's men. Eventually, according to the scripture, Arthur then must "lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it". And snuff it he did.
The bunny would be the perfect killing machine on the Suicide Squad. Simply attach some gas tanks in order to put him to sleep after a mission, put him in a carrier, and off you go, enemies gone.
4. The Genius
Someone's got to come up with the plans. And if Deadpool's too noisy or the rabbit is too unpredictable, there will need to be some very good planning. Additionaly, the ability to create gadgets and inventions for Agent 23 would be handy as well. I present to you the great inventor...
Syndrome- The Incredibles
Syndrome is really smart. He invented all the gadgets we see him use in the incredibles. From the Omnidroid to Rocket Boots to Freeze Ray Lazer Pointers, Syndrome invented it all. He would be perfect at helping out the team with gadgets, and can more than hold his own in a one on one himself if need be. Syndrome is more brain than brawn, and the team really needs that.
There we have it. The leader, the soldier, the stealthy killer and the brains. The unbeatable Suicide Squad. This team combine's four unique personalities and brings them together to fight crime, but really fight for freedom.
Going against this squad would be suicide. (See what I did there?)
