So here's a theory, that four is a fantastic number and that the truly great teams (i.e. The Beatles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers, etc.) operate with four members... MJ and Chuck and Gordon and apparently the Vic itself make four.

Let me know how many you'd put in your ideal team!

No no no no, the Vic is clearly the team pet, and that one usually doesn't count!

You want to recruit Lariat lady as the fourth, don't you? Are you perhaps wearing shipping goggles that show you a potential romantic subplot as Elektra joins the team and builds a relationship with "Jim Gordon?" It would fit in with other violent, exploitative, and messed up romance plots there have been in this series, but I remain to be convinced that one can work outside of fan-art.

Damn, ninja'd by the AC.

Elektra's something of the "born to lose" category of characters... besides that I would love to bring her in to the fold but I am trying to wean myself off of violent blondes.

Her relationship with the Kings gang in AB would also make any sort of long term thing with Happy and his crew problematic at best. Also they kinda fought for like eighty eight pages

edit: you know what, I'll draw some Gordon/Greco Rule 34 stuff for myself and won't share

How is that different from telling us you will, and then not doing it? :D

@AC: the dirty deed’s already been done

MR, did I ever mention that you are f***ing crazy?

Chuck is clearly the team pet

I wonder if this is "Jim Gordon's" first time on this side of torture and interrogation? He has to know what's happening here. He also has to have some idea of his odds of being rescued since he picked this isolated place to try and interrogate Elektra.

How many are in my ideal team? That's a tricky question, and it depends on what the team is for. A successful team for developing a new industrial control supervisor system is probably different from a successful advance party of the coming revolution. Or is it?

The A-team has four and that’s good enough for me

See? See, this is what I'm talking about.

While the ideal team in my own works is most often a trinity:
(The Misfits of Mischief; or the protags of the current version of Wonderland Hates You; or a certain TRIO of my OC superheroes whose story I am plotting out and totally reworking as we speak for release in 2020...)

foursomes work as well, though.
My fave "Fab Four" that isn't actually THE Fab Four or (The Fantastic Four, for that matter), are the Ghostbusters!

What about the Magnificent 7? Wait, most of them died.

The seven samurai is even more fatal

I tend to like 7, although The Beatles are my favorite band of all time...but 7 is a lucky number. And a number of power :D

If one believes in those things :3

If I ever get around to writing about Chuck and MJ again, the next series may have the name Mary Joan's Seven Virtues, referring to her off-the-books wetworks squad.
