New Straits Times (NST) quoted Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad as saying that the council was set up to "help the government shape policies and programmes in order to fulfil PH's 100-day-promise to the rakyat."

The council consists of former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin, Bank Negara governor Tan Sri Zeti Akhtar Aziz, former president and CEO of Petronas Tan Sri Hassan Merican, billionaire Tan Sri Robert Kuok, and prominent economist Dr Jomo Kwame Sundaram.

The coming together of these influential figures has gotten Malaysians excited and creative reactions did not disappoint at all:

1. Of course, expect plenty of Marvel and Avengers references

Mat Sabu/Hulk tho. 

2. Looks like Malaysia is getting its own Knights Of The Round Table

3. Tun M has good taste in anime!

4. This LOTR reference

5. This one too. A+ or D- for Photoshop effort?

6. "Restructure the government, we must"

7. This squad >

Don't be mistaken, the council is not just some cool group. They mean business:
