Inspired by the Suicide Squad and the Thunderbolts, I was wanting to see if anyone was interested in this idea.
Here's the gist:
Mavericks are a government-sanctioned black ops team of former supervillains who trying to make good, go "legit" so to speak. Thing is, it's not always easy to transition from villain to hero, for one reason or another. This gives them the chance to do that. In exchange for their services, they'll have their records cleared and be allowed a second chance at life. Sometimes, there are things that normal heroes can't do, or won't do, so it takes someone operating under the banner of "villain" to make it happen. In fact, that's how they got their name, as Mavericks they're inherently unorthodox. Of course, some people aren't necessarily trying to be legit, but they can still make good money...
What do you guys think? Let's share our villain ideas for this where we share members with shady pasts that have the potential to do good. I'll post something a little later.
