This is my contest entry for the Suicide Squad contest, they don't come much more Twisted then this....

The Brains Of The Squad.

Gustavo "Gus" Fring is a very successful and unassuming man. He is a brilliant businessman and restaurateur by day and a ruthless and calculating meth kingpin by night. He maintains his persona as a pillar in the community by not only owning a local chicken shack, but he is also a very public supporter of the DEA and their ongoing war against drugs. Which makes it all the more amazing that he is the biggest drug pusher in the southwest region of the United States. He runs his cartel and restaurants with the same deliberate and methodical precision that could easily manage the varied and explosive personalities that the suicide squad would bring together.

The Enforcer

Asajj Ventress was a Jedi padawan turned Sith apprentice, and finally a cold blooded mercenary. Ventress has a very checkered past that has had her allegiances all over the spectrum, but know matter were she stands one thing is ever present and that is that Asajj Ventress is a true force of nature. With her very prominent force powers and extensive training in hand to hand combat and light sabers she is not an opponent to be taken lightly. She has dueled Jedi Masters to a draw, taken on entire battalions of droids, and clones solo, and has been the last woman standing on more occasions then I can count.

The Morale Gray Area

Jason Todd the Red Hood has been trained by Batman, killed by the Joker, resurrected by the League of Assassins, gone on a killing spree of vengeance, and turned his life around to try and atone for his sins but still not above killing. Red Hood has a huge chip on his shoulders and at the same time has a lot to be pissed off about. He would not only be an outstanding addition to the squad, but he still has just enough hero in him to challenge Gus and Amanda Waller to make things a bit chippy.

The Wildcard

Every Suicide Squad needs someone to truly give the team a reason to live up to the name Suicide Squad, and without the Joker, Harley Quinn, or another DC nut job I had to find one of my favorite powerhouse weirdos to join the fray. Nancy Downs from "The Craft" is a very powerful witch and extremely mentally unstable. She has a wide array of abilities ranging from but not limited too fire manipulation, glamouring, shape shifting, telekinesis, curses and summoning abilities. Now that alone is a load but you add in her addictive and jealous personality along with her short temper and we got fireworks bigger then the Fourth of July.

Well that's my squad, come at me if you dare...
