Money and lots of it.

Near the beginning of the game there's a mission where you kidnap a maid. If you don't kidnap her you can place your minions all over the world and take money forever without people coming to attack you.

Stopping the Super Agents

There is a way to "freeze" those pesky super agents that are killing your minions. First you will need to have Lord Kane and The Matron as henchmen. Then you will need to have their special abilities Smooth Operator and Electro Shock Therapy available. Now, when a super agents walks around your island have Lord Kane use Smooth Operator on him/her, but before the animation is half done (you have to be fairly quick on the ball) have The Matron use Electro Shock Therapy on the agent. Now because of a glitch your super agent will be electrocuted forever :) a little present for the bugger that was killing all your precious henchmen.

Several notes however:
1. Do not do this with a lot of your minions are around. Do to path finding errors your henchmen may just stand like dolts instead of using their abilities.

2. Using Electro Shock Therapy (unknown if others special abilities will have the same affect) on the super agent or around the super agent that is "frozen" will unfreeze him/her -- and guess what, they are not in a very happy mood after words :p.

Lastly this should work with the patched verision, and you are able to have mutiply superagents stuck like this at one time -- all if your like me and get over zealous too early. Have fun taking over the world now.
