Suppose you're commissioned to create a 3-man squad of ninja (regardless of whether they're currently alive or dead) who will stay together to complete various missions. Who would you use? Please give some opinion as to why you'd use them (note, each of Pain's paths consist of one ninja, that way no one can use six people in one spot, lol). Mine would be:
Itachi: His skills in all areas are superb, genjutsu and intelligence not the least of which. His Mangekyo Sharingan and Susanoo are incredible, and in the field there may be none smarter.
Naruto: Never thought I'd see the day, but with the Nine-Tailed Fox, there's really no chance of losing. And now especially with his Sage Mode training, his power is truly limitless.
Tsunade: You probably can't have a ninja squad without a medical nin, and for that there's none better than Tsunade. Plus, in a pinch, she can out-punch most ninja.
