's journal...If you could assemble your own superteam of any characters (fictional, historical, or modern real people) for some world-spanning epic fantasy adventure, who would they be? Pick your team according to role and function. Some characters can play multiple functions. Who would work well together and who would clash?
TEAM LEADER/ORGANISER: Mina Murray (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
). Anyone who can control Mr Hyde and make the rest of the League get on (for the most part) has to have a leadership role.
OTHER TEAM LEADER/FIELD LEADER: Six-Pack (Hitman/Section 8
). He knows all the other superheroes, he's loyal, brave... and if he's this good drunk, what's he going to be like sober?
GADGETEER/INVENTOR/OCCASIONAL MYSTIC: Forge (X-Men
). His mutant power to understand machinery and build just about anything would always come in handy, and he's also got some shamanistic powers (even if he doesn't like to use them). Also useful for reining in the team damage-dealer (see below).
TANK/SIEGE-BREAKER/GENERAL HEAVY-HITTER/TEAM CONSCIENCE: The Thing (Fantastic Four
). When it comes to hitting things till they break/fall over, there are very few better. Plus, he's down-to-earth enough to keep the others grounded.
TOO-POWERFUL DAMAGE-DEALER/TELEPATH: Nate Grey (X-Man/X-Men
). Oh, come on, you knew he'd be in here somewhere...
DEUX EX MACHINA: Galen (Crusade/Babylon 5
). Always turns up at the last minute to save the day with his technomage abilities. Plus he and Forge would get on brilliantly.
SCOUT/NINJA/HACKER: Shadowcat (X-Men
). Her ability to phase would be pretty much invaluable in getting into places, plus she can take care of herself if she's ever caught.
PUBLIC RELATIONS/PUBLIC SPEAKER/TANK: Statesman (City of Heroes
). He's patriotic and a known and loved superhero symbol. If anything ever goes wrong, he'd be able to talk the authorities out of prosecuting.
COMIC RELIEF: Baytor (Hitman
). I am BAYTOR!
