Marilyn Monroe (Code Name: Bombshell) uses her good looks and power over men to good effect as a member of the Summit Squadron. While most members of the team were recruited by the government along with Frank, Marilyn's introduction to the team was a bit more complicated. Although the general public would not find about her affairs with the Kennedy brothers for nearly a decade, word of her relationships with two of the most powerful men in America spread through the intelligence community like wildfire. She became a target for enemy agents who hoped to extract information from her and possibly turn her.
The CIA decided that Monroe's substance abuse problem and possible communist sympathies (as evidenced to her marriage to suspected communist Norman Mailer) made her a security risk that needed to be eliminated. The first team sent in to assassinate Norma Jeane botched the job and clued her in that her days were numbered. When the Kennedys refused to get involved, Marilyn turned to the next most powerful man she knew: Frank Sinatra. Frank told the agency that he could use "a broad like that" on his team, and that Marilyn would be more useful alive than dead, especially if everyone believed she was dead. After her "death" in 1962, Marilyn became a member of the Squadron.
