The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen meme

From wcg:

The rules are
  1. Choose five to seven characters.
  2. They may be from books, movies, comics, TV shows, games, and real life, but no traditional superheroes (in other words, no "Avengers Assemble!" or "Justice League of America" stuff).
  3. They may be from any place on the space-time continuum, and any plane of existence --characters do not need to exist within the same era and country as in the original
  4. You must identify the recruiter, the leader, and the villain, and there must be at least one female.
  5. Optional: You may identify their primary means of transport (like Nemo's Nautilus)
