Here’s the synopsis per Deadline:
Cowboy Ninja Viking is based on the Image Comics graphic novel by AJ Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. The title character comes from a secret government program to turn schizophrenics into assassins.
Stop right there. Of all the people in the world you could turn into assassins, you’re going to go with schizophrenics. When choosing from a wide variety of psychological ailments, you couldn’t go with “anti-social behavior” or see what the psychopaths were up to? You went with a mental disorder that makes its sufferers anything but reliable. Okay then, let’s continue…
The protagonist comes through the program with the skill sets of a cowboy, ninja and a viking.
I’m assuming he drew these out of a hat. Not in the hat: good ideas.
While most of the patients involved in the program are sent back to insane asylum after the program went awry in Iraq,
What?! It went awry?! In Iraq?! But that’s the sanest place on Earth!
he escapes and uses his skills to track down the billionaire who masterminded the program.
