You're a comic book editor. You have an opportunity to create your own super team that you want. Use 7 slots available made up of existing super heroes.

Rules -

1 - need at least one hero from Marvel.

2- need at least one hero from DC.

3- need at least one female.

4- need at least one male.

5- up to seven heroes total.

6- don't have to, but feel free to mention a few supervillains that this team would battle as well.

7- remember it's not just about a kicka$$ team. It's also about selling comics with good stories. So personalities & how they interact are important.

Here's mine.

Batman, Deadpool, Johnny Storm, Ms. Marvel, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Psylocke & Beta Ray Bill.

Green Lanter & Torch are both playboys with two attractive tough women. Deadpool & Batman interaction would be interesting. Beta Ray would be the strong guy & straight guy... either him, Batman or Ms Marvel would be team leader.

Scarlet Spider (Kaine), The Flash (Wally West), Venom (Flash Thompson), Green Lantern (John Stewart), Nova Prime (Richie Rider), Aquaman and Legion (Mass Effect).

Wally and Richie would become fast friends over their similar situations: guys that are jokers yet are massive powerhouses. They would both be friends with Flash.

Kaine and John wouldn't get along as John would disapprove of him being a re-formed murderer. Kaine and Flash would be rivals over the Spiderman feel though they are both different enough to be diverse.

Aquaman would be the serious guy along with Legion and John would try to teach them human behaviour whilst trying to stop Richie, Wally and Flash corrupting them.

They would fight world level threats similar to how the Avengers do but could do special under cover operations with Kaine, Flash and Legion similar to X-Force.

I like street levelers and mercenaries so my preferred team would probably be some kind of assassin squad along the lines of:

Leaders: Taskmaster and Deathstroke

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Members: Huntress, Black Tarantula, Deadpool, Typhoid Mary, Lady Shiva

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5

A three way banter between Taskmaster, Deathstroke and Deadpool would be nothing short of epic.

I'd go with Nova, Starlord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Ms. Marvel, Guy Gardner, and Adam Strange.

Set them in Marvel's Cosmicverse, main bad guys would be Brood, Badoon, Magus, some Externals... Vulcan (yes I would bring him back to be a bad guy for them)

I think this team up would be a great read and have some great chemistry.

Colossus

Batman

Spider-man

Villains: Lex Luthor brings Sentry back to life. He recruits the wrecking crew, taskmaster, Black Adam, and a few other villains to his aid. It takes twenty issues to finally bring them down. Then Super-man Prime invades Marvel's Earth... and then... and then....

It'd sell. Why? Spider-man, Batman, Deadpool, and Thor.

6. Spawn

7. Snake-Eyes

I went for a team with darker personalities. Ghost Rider and Spawn are going to be the powerhouses of the team. Wolverine, Grifter, Black Widow, and Snake-Eyes are the fighters, and Batman is the tactician and leader, but can hold his own in a fight.

This feels like a golden opportunity to create the ultimate team of teenage superheroes, because they'll always be my favorite and seriously, screw the titans.

Static, Leader/Smart Guy

Supergirl: Because every team needs a flying brick.

Blue Beetle, The iron man analogue

XS: The speedster

X-23 the feral one.

Aqualad (Jackson Hyde) The aquaman analogue.

Pixie Teleportation+Magic user.

If I were to create my own superhero team, I'd just create my own superheroes and then draft them to be on it.

But, in the spirit of the game:

  • Captain Atom
  • Animal Man
  • Storm
  • Ant-Man (Hank Pym)
  • Starfire (could prove interesting with Animal Man on the team, granted that their little tryst is still in continuity)
  • Mockingbird

Detective Services

1. Dick Grayson

A natural leader and taught by the Detective himself.

2. Madrox

Dupes are good for Multitasking and he's always on the job

3. Abe Sapien

A great team player and his unique abilities have shown to be excellent for detective work.

4. John Constantine

Magic always helps when dealing with situations where all the information isn't present.

5. Deadman

His whole story is basically the fact that he's a ghostly detective

6. Layla Miller

She knows stuff.

7. Dawn Granger

Danger Sense is good in this line of work.

My Super Seven

1. Martian Manhunter

Martian Manhunter is a total BOSS.He's a telepath so that's how the team will stay connected at all times. He has super strength so he can definitely fend for himself and he's calm and calculating, making him a great leader.

2. Captain Atom

He's a soldier and he knows how to take orders. He'll be 2nd in command.

3. Guy Gardner

Guy gives the team some humor and attitude and he's also a heavy hitter.

4. Zatanna

You can't beat everything with brute strength and that's why she's here.

5. Mr. Fantastic

He will be the team's tech guru and along with Zatanna, there won't be much that can catch them by surprise.

6. Ms. Marvel

She can put a big dent on just about anything.

7. Barry Allen

Speedsters are always good.

Deadpool, Wally West, Squril Girl, Booster Gold, Kitty Pride, Captian Marvel, and Johnny Storm the would be the firs superhero team to play before work instead of work then play. Some villains that would fight thm are the joker, Harley Quinn, and everyone that squril girl defeated. Why they would sell because it would be a team that jokes around but can also be serious

Green Arrow's Liberalism + Midnighter's Homosexuality + Rosarch's Conservatism = The most insane infuriating opinion inflaming three way in comics history. Combine that with Kid Omega's dickish tenancies , Harley Quinn's psychosis and X-23''s incredibly messed up childhood and you have a literal dysfunction junction. The only way to improve this would clinical study of psychosis would be to add a relapsing Tony Stark and maybe The Hulk.

Also Venom's only there because I like Venom and he's pretty insane.
