Ridiculous Superhero Nerd Fun

I just thought up a new game. The rules are easy.

1. Select your favorite seven (7) currently-running superhero solo titles.

2. Name them.

3. Now imagine them together as a super-team.

It's a fun game, you should try it. Post your super-teams here! It's like being Bendis and Marvel owns everything!

Me first! I go first! I thought up the game so I go first!

OK, so I am playing my own game now and here are the results.

1. Adam Strange
2. Plastic Man
3. Invincible
4. The Goon
5. The Question
6. Captain America
7. Spider-man

HOWEVER . . .if "The Goon" doesn't count, and he may very well not (can I get a ruling?) then the rest of the guys after him move up one notch and he is replaced with . . .errrr . . .this is hard . . .but I'll go with the more superheroic of the two choices, Jack Staff. (The Punisher was the other).

Yay! That was fun! What a crazy team that would be!

Boy, this is insanely hard.

Marshal Law
John Constantine
Seska Fuzen (Masamune Shirow's Orion)
Harley Quinn (Lieberman's murderous, knife-throwing, people-shooting, child-blinding version, y'know, the one with a healing factor)

...I give up. Those seven are the best I can come up with. Half of them aren't really superheroes, one is a villain and Enigma is so omnipotent that he renders all the others redundant.


*looks at handiwork*

That _would_ be a really freaky bunch, though.

You HAVE FAILED! But for another reason.

Most of those guys don't have a current series.

Dammit! I just realized I didn't put that in the rule! Crap! Let me see if I can edit.

My team would be way different, then. Perhaps that should be like the Canadian rules.

There we go. All fixed. LIKE NOTHING EVER HAPPENED.

1.Adam Strange
3.Plastic Man
4.Captain America
7.Savage Dragon

I think that would actually be a pretty fun team, and I even have a decent male/female ratio.

You know what? Good point. Ultra beats out Jack Staff these days.

1/06/2005 06:54:00 PM

1. She-Hulk
2. Adam Strange
3. Catwoman
4. Flash
5. Spiderman
6. Majestic
7. Wolverine

Woo! That was fun!
Bring it.

I wish I could edit these comments.

So, current list:

Adam Strange
Plastic Man
The Question
Captain America

Yeah, I wish I could edit these comments as well.

I mean, Wolverine, Lena?

After I published my comment, I wished I could've replaced Wolverine with Nightwing.

Too late. Now you hate Nightwing.

I'm telling him in study hall.

1/06/2005 07:31:00 PM  
Blogger Brian Cronin said...

I dunno, if you want Nightwing, you better be prepared to fight Devin Grayson for him.

She luuuuuuuvs him.

You're right. I really wanted to put down Scooby doo.

I don't know if I *have* seven favorite currently running superhero books; I read a lot of team stuff these days. But I'll try:

1. Amazing Spider-Man
2. Green Arrow
3. Incredible Hulk

...yeah, that's it. Damn, I suck at this game.

1/06/2005 07:56:00 PM  
Blogger Joe Rice said...

Mike, have you tried Invincible? Cause I'd put money on you liking it.

It's like Superman + Spider-man except, you know, good.

Blogger Michael said...

From everything I've heard, I'd love it like a woman, but I haven't had the time or cash lately to get into a new series of trades.

1/06/2005 09:26:00 PM  
Blogger Lyle said...

Hmm, let's see...

1. John Constantine
2. Christopher Chance
3. Plastic Man
4. Manhunter
5. Wonder Woman
6. Ultimate Spider-Man
7. Catwoman

Well, I barely read enough shared-universe solo titles to make a list. That's an odd team, to say the least. For some reason I imagine a lot of bickering, dismissive walking away and forcible reversals of that walking away.

1) Adam Strange
2) She-Hulk
3) The Question
4) Plastic Man
5) Hulk
Um. How far do superheroes go? 'cause if I had my druthers, the last two are
6) Mayor Hundred/The Great Machine (Ex Machina), and
7) Holden Carver (Sleeper)
who are superpowered protagonists... otherwise it's MK Spider-Man and Azz/Lee Superman in that order, both of which I'm starting to find more and more marginal. And yet I still like The Incredible Hulk...

Anyways, the team as numbered would probably fall apart in twelve seconds. But the second you stick Superman in it can hold together. But yeah, that's my list.

1) Superman
2) Plastic Man
3) Captain America
4) Holden Carver from Sleeper
5) Deadshot
6) Daredevil
7) Batgirl

Do these have to be ongoing series? Or do LS' count?

Assuming they do...

Green Lantern: Rebirth (This one's tenuous, but you know Hal's getting his own series soon, and I am reading this one)
Adam Strange
Fallen Angel
Swamp Thing
Captain America

So there you go.

Okay, other people have used Fallen aAngel, so I will too. And if minis are allowed, add Madrox to mine. The final two spots I will fill with Voltron. Yes, I know it's five guys in lions, but Voltron himself still counts as one hero.

So my new list:

Green Arrow
The Fallen Angel
Multiple Man

Hot damn, that's a cool team. They'd kick anybody's ass.

Weirdest thing.....I jsut realized I don't read any solo super-hero series. I buy Nightcrawler, but it's for my roommate. So I came up with this list of books I read that could theoretically be about solo chracters (even thyough two aren't super-pweored)

Bitchy Bitch
Desert Peach (although I haven't seen one in quite a while)
Tim Hunter

I would imagine that this team would be pretty much unbeatable. Luba's tits alone could take out the entire Flash Rogue's Gallery.

Captain America
Hulk (Banner version)
Jenny Sparks
Silver Surfer
Tommy Monoghan

I'd bring back the name Power Company or Champions for this team.

I imagine that Tommy & Jenny would be drinking constantly. Bats & Cap will have to try real hard not to kill them. Throw in some guest appearances by the JSA, Wolverine & Havok/Polaris then this book would sell huge.

1. Savage Dragon
2. Invincible
3. Max Hundred (Ex Machina)
4. Jack Staff
5. The Goon
6. Hellboy
7. Shaloin Cowboy

That's a pretty awesome team if you ask me.

Jesus Christ, you said "current"
This is why I'm the king of edits.
Well now, let's put up another list.

Captain America
Adam Strange
Holden Carver
Cosmic Guard
Frank Castle

Now that's a completely different team.
I'd go with using Power Company over Champions for this one.

Oh fun!

1.) Adam Strange
2.) Deadshot
3.) Plastic Man
4.) Wonder Woman
5.) Firestorm (current version)
6.) Spider-Girl
7.) Mystique

I call this group the Huh?s. Just a really odd mix. I thought about putting Flash on the list, but I only wanted 1 of DC's Big 7 on there. Also, I like Green Arrow as a character and I tried to put him on the list, but I decided against it because I hate his current book.

And this was hard. I realised just how many team/group books I read now. Titans, Runaways, Noble Causes, Fables, Gotham Central, etc. Well, I guess my tastes are semi-evenly split between solo books and team books.

P.S. I see that I'm not the only one who put Plastic Man and Adam Strange on their lists. That's good to see. More people should read them, dangit.

Does "current" mean published this month, or y'know, in the past year?
1. Seaguy
2. Magnus Robot Fighter
(the reprints make him eligible, damnit!)
3. Black Widow
4. Green Lantern (Hal,pre-suck)
5. Supergirl
6. Smax
7. Flaming Carrot
