Subj: I think 13 is a bit too large...trying to find teams who at least can get some type of alignment...

Reply Subj: What would your true Cabal of Villains look like?

Marvel's Acts of Vengeance did a pretty darned good job of it honestly, but...
Seth, god of Death brings together the following
Resurrected by Seth:
Seth brings back two dead characters, one who died honorably but who was a villain, and Hulk Villain Trauma, but both are under his control (much as Red Norvel was when brought back...I considered Norvel as a lackey, but)...these guys are brute force lackeys mostly bodyguards to Seth, though Seth is the most powerful of all the guys here
I picked the rest because I think they can mostly reconcile their motivations (no Red Skull and Magneto on a team, for instance). Also, all are intelligent and should command at least some measure of respect from the others.
Count Nefaria-all around powerful, and an aristocrat who wants his
Amora the Enchantress- joins because Skurge is brought back
Note: I thought about including Kro, because he won't show up in anyones list...I also considered Lord Tantalus, but I figure this is a good mix of different powersets, and their motivations are reconcilable enough. I also thought about Jomungund, the Midgard Serpent, but with him being resurrected by Seth, I thought it might be too much...
President Lex Luthor - yeah, that version
He coordinates with others based on their desire to strike at heroes that have previously defeated them for the most part
Maxwell Lord: Luthor's right hand
Hugo Strange: an advisor to Luthor
General Eiling - muscle, and bring him in line with is commander
Massacre: I really liked him as a Superman villain, and since he
never really got over the grudge, I think he could be pursuaded
to work with this team, if only for a time...provided he's alive
Devastation: capable and intelligent, and a good match for Wonder
Woman, an excellent member of the team
Kestrel, because I always liked him, and he was the pinnacle
Hawk and Dove villain in the Kessel run
Asmodel: I liked his first arc vs. the Justice League
Malefic:intense hatred for Jonn and great powerset
Sinestro: hatred for the GLs makes him amenable to working with Luthor
Cobalt Blue: intense hatred for Flash, brings an interesting powerset
to the table
The question is, do I want to go 'cool', powerful, work together, or what...
Hordak: because Masters of the Universe is my favorite property...
I have to have either Skeletor or Hordak...
Megatron (Beast Wars). I like the other Megatron better, but think
the Beast Wars version is more likely to work with organics, and
I wanted to have someone from Transformers involved
Sho Nuff: small time compared to others, but among my favorite
villains in any genre, so I included him. He's a great
street level to meta threat, with top flight fighting skill
Ctchutchik: Grolim High Priest from the Belgariad, powerful wizard
who gave Belgarath the best fight (better than Belzedar IMO)
Bianca: old and powerful Red Court Vampire from the Dresden books
Darth Vader: Duh
Khan: Star Trek
Mumm Ra: It was either him or Mon Starr
