Legion of Super Villains

A few weeks ago terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Administrative Maximum United States Peneteniary in Florence, CO. This prison, nicknamed Supermax, houses 394 of the most infamous characters in the penal system including:

  • Terry Nichols, accomplice to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh (who was himself housed there before being executed).

  • Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center attack.

  • Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-Owhali and Wadih El Hage, convicted of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.

  • “Shoebomber” Richard Reid.

  • “Unabomber” Theodore Kaczynski.

  • Olympic park bomber Eric Rudolph.

  • Robert Hanssen, a former FBI agent who is serving life for spying for the former USSR.

  • Woody Harrelson’s dad, Charles Harrelson, who is serving two life sentences for the murder of a federal judge.

Uh, am I the only one here who grew up reading comic books??

They’ve put nine supervillains in the same facility and given them almost four hundred potential henchmen.

I know I’ve seen this plot before. They’re going to team up and break out!

I hope someone has the Justice League on speed dial.

Zacarias Moussaoui and Richard Reed are not even a good henchman, Terry Nichols is a whiner, Kaczynski and Rudolph spent to many years in the woods "tagging" sheep, Hanssen only got 200K for selling out his country. These guys couldn't lead the line to lunch. They would make the worst super villians ever. :)

Unless they are all put on a plane with John Malcovich we should be safe.

our post was my first big laugh of the day and I love the use of the "how to be a super-villian" image.

I beg to differ, AOC. These guys are the perfect DC comics supervillains -- they'll bicker and bungle and backstab each other so even candy asses like Hawkman or Black Canary can take them out. ;)

***DEAD*** at the entire post...I was having a really bad day and you have just brought joy to my day. Thank you!!! LMAO

Lt. Cmdr Oneida said...

Yeah, but Rudolph (who should have put to death, but I digress) and Kaczynski both some some serious IED experience.

Just as long as the legion in spandex, then I'll be scared, and scarred.

Lt. Cmdr Oneida said...

ohh, bad typo, should be 'isn't in', as please no spandex, anything but spandex

Michelle Pessoa said...

I think spandex is required, unfortunately.

JQ, what is "DEAD"? I don't know that acronym. I hope it's good. ;)
