Quick! Space aliens have taken over planet Earth! Between their sneak attacks and human kidnappings, they seem to have dropped something. You think it’s a device that could let you bring fictional characters to life. Time to build an army.
The Soldiers: Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games), Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy), Rachel Buchanan (Spy Goddess).
With a Strigoi ass-kicking dhampir, a sassy yet powerful young goddess, and Katniss freaking Everdeen fighting on our side, there’s no way we could lose!
The Distraction: Taylor (Gone).
Simply strike a random conversation with whatever UFO hugger she pleases then bounce right out after out soldiers sneak in. Foolproof.
The Scouts: Widge (The Shakespeare Stealer) and Evie (Paranormalcy)
Sure, Widge would have to get used to the 21st century before he got to work, but that’s a small price to pay to have him write down the enemy’s word for world plans (assuming the aliens spoke English). As for Evie, you never know if the supernatural are helping the wrong side. Better to be safe than sorry.
The Team Leaders: Albert (Gone) and Elder (Across the Universe)
If you can get a bunch of scared, confused, sometimes powerful kids to go pick cabbage, you can lead an apocalypse team. As for Elder, someone has to be okay with any possible alien technology. Expert? Not by a long shot. Able to calm people down about it? You betcha.
The Strategists: Nicholas Benedict (The Mysterious Benedict Society), Ky (Matched).
One has an IQ higher than a room full of Harvard students. The other can pilot airships, escape if needed, and chances are he’s immune to any alien drugs- it’s his experience and expertise that would lead us to victory.
