Make an X-Files super-team

Postby FaxModem1 » 2017-04-07 02:29am

To counter the alien/Syndicate threat, Mulder, Scully, and Skinner decide to review the X-Files, and recruit a team of freaks, weirdos, creatures, etc. to fight the alien menace.

Rules: They can only pick people who are still alive at the end of season 9 of X-Files. The character must have appeared in an episode of the X-Files TV show.

Who should they recruit? Why? Who would play ball? Who would be unwilling to join the team, but would be a good asset if they were able to be motivated/coerced to help save the Earth against aliens?

The alien rebels seem like the perfect starting point, if you could get them on board - maybe with promises of going public and getting local government support for their cause, should we manage to keep the colonists out - because they at least would know one important thing that even the syndicate don't know.

What the aliens are capable of - in the X-files the earthlings are in the unenviable position of not even knowing what the enemy can do.

Hmm, yes, the Rebels are a good starting point.

They've also got their usual contacts- the Lone Gunmen, friendly FBI people, etc.

Looking into some of the psychics might be useful. The problem is, a lot of the "monsters of the week" are, well, monsters- either evil, uncontrollable, or both.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.
