Red Hood and the Suicide Squad

I'm reading the current Suicide Squad and Red Hood and the Outlaws and it got me wondering, if Jason Todd was ever captured and imprisoned, he could very well end up chosen as the new member, if not leader, of the Suicide Squad. It made me wonder, if we were to use previously established villains, what would be a good roster for the Red Hoods Suicide Squad? What do you think?

I've been saying this from the start. I'd rather have the Outsiders back instead of Jason and the Rip-Offs

Dude i know that some people did not like Dixon's Outsiders but I LOVED it. I really tried to like RH and the Outlaws but it's just not good at all. Jason Todd in the Suicide Squad is genius, and bringing back the Outsiders is even better, if it was Nightwing leading the team again.

I miss Dick being in a team book.

A former Batman sidekick working with a former (arguably) Batman villain? Not my taste, I'll pass.

I like Jason, Roy, and Starfire, but they did such bad job. In my opinion, Jason should work with a small team, that way he can have more attention. I think they should just redo the Outlaws and replace Starfire with Cassandra Cain.

I wouldn't waste a dime on it. Can't stand any of the characters.

I'm enjoying RHTO but Lobdell as a writer is walking on egg shells with me right now so my opinion could change

It would be actually pretty interesting but I wouldn't want him on the same Suicide Squad roster that is now.

Then you don't know and you're talking out of your rear.

.......so.........I don't know if I would rather have the Batman & Outsiders back instead of the team with the suspiously similarname and concept full of characters that I don't like who just happen to be former members of the team that I do like.......how does that work exactly?

Red Hood and The Outlaws is one of my favorite books out of the relaunch. I really think more people should give it a chance. The controversy over Starfire's portrayal in the first issue turned a lot of people off, but it has all been rectified since then and the book has gone nowhere but up in terms of quality.

It's not the same concept, 1. and secondly you want the Outsiders back that has nothing to do with the Outlaws.

Hmmm, Red Hood and Deadshot on the same team together. I can see alot of marksmanship arguing not to mention moral standing. Deadshot executed a whole room full of hostages without a second thought. I know sure as shit Jason would NOT have stood by that and would have put 5 in Deadshots head over it. Plus I can see the two of them racing to put a whole chamber into Amanda Waller's head first. All in all it seems like a worthy concept but in the end futile.

If you say so. I still say that the Outlaws existence and The Outsiders absence isnt a coincidence.

I said this long before the whole 52 things, i also said Harley Quinn should have bein a member, the only problem today is that you would need Jason as a team member for a time, to make him work.

Also at this point, i think he just need at least another year with the Outlaws and then go into que Squad.

Definitly not. Jason is not a villain, he is more a antihero, a hero who kills, i think.
