* SuperSoldier: The team full of death-row convicts are offered full pardons if they help take an enemy installation. They realize something is wrong when they find nothing but a pile of rotting bodies waiting for them. Then they start getting picked off one by one. It turns out their entire mission was really a test of the military's prototype super solider - the titular "Legion" ([[spoiler:who is actually on eof the convicts who allowed himself to be a guinea pig to avoid execution]]).
