But what is a loss if not a new opportunity persevering? Wait…that’s the wrong universe!  Anyways, with the SSI looking to extort…we mean hire some new talent!, this guide will show you how the esteemed Amanda Waller selects potential victims…we mean candidates for Task Force X. It involves multiple criteria, testing, and questions to decide the right member for the job.  This guide can be helpful to those looking to hire new employees or give insight to those applying to a new job.

Criteria 1: Does the candidate have children? 
Candidates with children are usually very driven and goal orientated. They will do anything to ensure that their children are provided for and continue to be safe. These candidates take responsibility for everything because they know every action they take directly affects their little ones. Previous employees who fit this criterion were Bloodsport and Deadshot.
Potential candidates that fit this criterion are Thaal Sinestro, Sports Master, and Deathstroke.

Criteria 2: Past Experience with the Justice League members. 
Members of Task Force X will have to take on enemies of varying strengths and abilities. Some of these adversaries may even come from outer space. Having experience with Justice League members will show a candidate’s ability to take on difficult tasks, out-of-the-box thinking, and endurance.  Previous Task Force X members with experience with the Justice League members include Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Bloodsport, and Killer Croc.  Potential candidates that fit this criterion: Lex Luthor, Cheetah, The Joker, and Black Manta.

Criteria 3: Unresolved Trauma 
While many employers will see trauma as a red flag, we at the Task Force X Initiative feel it is our duty to help those struggling with personal demons. We all struggle sometimes, and that struggle can be hiding an array of potential skills that we can exploit…cultivate to help begin the healing. Our program offers many tools to help our employees overcome their pain and become productive once again. Former Task Force X members with unresolved trauma included Katana, Enchantress,  Diablo, Harley Quinn, Polka Dot Man, Ratcatcher 2, and Weasel. Potential Candidates: Mr. Freeze, Chesire, Red Hood, and Blackfire.

Criteria 5: Leadership 

All members of Task Force X  will have to work in teams of varying sizes depending on the mission. Candidates must exhibit exceptional leadership qualities.

And with as few causalities as possible. Previous Leaders included Rick Flagg, Peacemaker, Bloodsport, and Deadshot. Possible Candidates for Leader: Egghead, Zoom, Killer Frost, Brainiac,  Bronze Tiger, and Queen of Diamonds.
