View Full Version : If you could build your own Justice League from both Dc & Marvel who would you pick?

Tried this originally thinking to make it M&M3e based but tried to expand it to include any superhero game system but figured I messed it up entirely!
So retyped it here where i think it suits it best!

Okay you have been given the chance to design the new Justice League team you can use any of the heroes present (any comic producer) as long as you provide them with a nemesis.
They're treated as having just appeared as a new team their previous careers developed them up to this point so... who would you pick if you could only choose up to 6 heroes and villains and what changes would you make to their background story?

For example;

Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents murder as a child, he was rescued by a masked crimefighter whose presence inspired him to become a protector of the innocent he chose the identity of Batman after a scary experience underground the premises of Wayne Manor where he stumbled onto the site of his future base the Bat Cave.
He has encountered other heroes and villains and alarmed at the increase in superpowered beings whether by means of science, technology, mutation or magic he decided he needed help and used his resources to fund a super team of his own.
He recruited the so-called Superman from Metropolis although to his regret this hero usurped his control of the team forcing him to seriously reconsider his plans.
He came across Nathan Summers when he defeated the villainous Morph and recruited him over the objections of Nathan's father, Scott.
Superman recruited Storm after she came to the US to study and is regarded as a goddess in her African homeland and engaged to the Prince of Wakanda a fantastically technologically advanced African nation.
Dr Strange a reknowned doctor and an authority on the occult which is why most people only sought his help as a final resort approached him for help with his new ward.
The girl was apparently the daughter of a world war 2 veteran who died protecting his "daughter" from unknown adversaries, Bruce was reluctant to get involved but his experiences with the occult made him accept Dr Strange's offer to join his team along with his ward.
With Superman intent on recruiting a pair of friends of his of which the speedster was at least a police forensic scientist the other a test pilot and wielder of an alien artefact that granted him unheard of powers which the arrogant fool put to use in ever growing acts of arrogant idiocy.
In return Bruce was hoping to get the help of a pair of rivals one an archer who considered himself Batman's equal and the other an actual aquanaut whose jovial nature at least belied enough experience to overcome the blind arrogance of his team's official leader...
For now he let things stand but that was until he could form a splinter group away from the spotlight of the original team...

What would you do if you could decide your own team?

I'd just enlist Batman and Superman to the Avengers. "The Avengers" sounds more catcy than "Justice League" anyway. As for team roster:

Ironman
Captain America
Thor
Dr. Strange
Batman
Superman

Great finally got a response!

Okay better add an extra condition, give your team name!

I wonder if I should also point out you could also design your own supervillain team in addition to act as their nemesis or just a villainous version to suit your whim?

I'd take a different route. Drop Black Bolt and Namor and Iron Man from the Marvel Illuminati.

Replace them with Dr. Fate, Batman and The Question.

Increase their ranks by adding Jenny Quantum.

So you have a group made up of the following:

Dr. Strange
Dr. Fate
Charles Xavier
Reed Richards
Batman
The Question
Jenny Quantum

Have them go public and take over directorship of the JLAvengers and offer open membership to any who wish to apply. Those seven would then best direct the efforts of all cooperating heroes against any threat that might appear.

It would be like the old Stormwatch days with a board of seven directors rather than the mad Henry Bendix. No changes in any backgrounds and no individual threat.

Rather, this would be a response to a scenario as seen in Kingdom Come where the subsequent generations of post-humanity grow out of control. Instead of having everyone randomly beating on each other until you no longer can tell heroes from villains, now you're seeing more directed efforts.

This would be an entirely voluntary act rather than any sort of metahuman registration, complete with international guidelines and fair compensation for both the heroic efforts and the collateral damage which might incur.

Batman
Ironman
Xavier
Superman
Dr Strange

The way I see it, this lineup has an excellent mix of abilities that cover virtually all the bases needed for a team. You have the strategist in batman, the tech guy in stark, the communications expert in chuck, the tank in superman, and the master of the occult in strange. For the last slot I vote for picking up a reality warper to float and fill in whatever gaps may appear. Someone like Proteus, if he was a good guy.

The combination of stark and wayne enterprises means the home base will be top of the line, technologically superior to just about everything, and well provisioned and protected. Both wayne and stark, but mainly stark, have a flexible list of alternate outfits to fit just about any scenario, giving the combat arm of the team limitless flexibility and the ability to trump any scenario that may appear. At least, any scenario superman cant just punch a hole through with ease. :p

Team name? I dunno.

Don't underestimate Plastic Man. He's immortal, unkillable and a complete wild card when it comes to strategy. Just ignore the comedic outlook and focus on the true devotion he prefers not to wear on his sleeve.

Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Doctor Fate, Iron Man, Storm, White Queen.

Wonder Woman serves as the team's brick, taking the front line and dueling with major enemies. She's about as powerful a brick as I think you can get without doing weird things to the team (hi, Superman).

Martian Manhunter assembles the team and serves as its jack-of-all-trades. His status as a full-on outsider and straight man provides a lot of perspective, and I've always liked him.

Doctor Fate provides magical support and knowledge, from a slightly arrogant perspective. His personality probably clashes with a lot of people, but he respects their tenacity. He also gives us some dual-personality stuff, which is good for stories.

Iron Man is the tech guy and wiseass of the team. He's pretty much good for it.

Storm provides glass cannon support and a bit a temperance to rein in the more aggressive team members, especially Wonder Woman and Iron Man. She can clash a bit with the others, but is friends with them.

White Queen provides psychic support, and gives us some reformed villain stories that can make a great plotline. Properly reformed, but much more willing to walk close to the edge than the other heroes most of the time.


A few other heroes can be around, but not on the team. Superman and Batman are just too big; they can get called in from time to time, but are usually not available. Ditto Thor. The team has some connections to SHIELD, and SHIELD agents can provide foils and allies in different situations.

If you want more diversity, swap Doctor Fate and Iron Man for Cyborg and Doctor Strange. The tone shifts a bit, since Cyborg is a bit less wisecracking than Iron Man and Strange is less of a jerk than Fate, but it could still work out.

McStabbington
2012-07-20, 12:43 AM
That would just be unfair: R2 is like a Dalek with a heart of gold. Aside from stairs, there's pretty much no derring that plucky little machine cannot do.

Hrm. This is a tough one, but I basically went for a pair of five-man bands. This gives them the ability to split the team up and also some flexibility in how things get done.

Captain America
Superman
Batman
Reed Richards
Spiderman
Wonder Woman
Doctor Strange
Professor X
Thor
Hal Jordan

While it may seem a cheat to use Spiderman and Wonder Woman as the respective "hearts", I do think it actually works out better than might be imagined at first glance. Diana bounces well off of both Superman and Batman, and can mellow the worst impulses of both with her blend of idealism and practicality. And Spidey's greatest attribute has always been his ability to see the best in any situation and his never-say-die attitude, which is what a heart is supposed to be about.

Team Starr:
Founded and funded by corporate ceo Karen Starr officially in actuality their primary team role is to improve relations with the inhabitants of their cities whilst a second shadow team deals with threats they can't openly.

Power Girl (Karen Starr)
Huntress (Helena Wayne-whatever other identity she wants!)
Marvel Girl (Jean Grey, pre-phoenix)
Zatanna (well thats their magic section covered!)
Black Widow (Espionage specialist and SHIELD liasion)
Black Canary (contact with the JSA as well as with Oracle)
Oracle (Barbara Gordon works via Black Canary to keep an alternative source of info that SHIELD either doesn't know about or doesn't want them to know about but since she works via Canary they can keep her presence a secret)
Super Girl (Kara Zor-el, actually Oracle's bodyguard and sent in if Power Girl goes rogue makes use of Marvel Girl/Binary outfit to keep foes guessing as who she actually is being taught by Oracle and some Bat friends of hers how to keep a low profile!)
She Hulk/Jennifer (don't remember her surname!) the team's lawyer and occasional operative, occasional because she usually has to help cover up the cost of the damage they can cause!
Vixen serves as the PR representative of the team

Shadow Team:
Rogue: absorbs powers from most powerful foe or allows Marvel Girl/Binary alternate personality to assume control so she can sort out most threats short of the Juggernaut and co.
Jubilee: Firework-like abilities trained by Wolverine into a first rate operative usually commands missions on basis of their threat level sometimes has Huntress step in but as far as the rest of her team are concerned she's in charge.
Karma: Mind controls opposition often using them to end a threat peacefully.
Mirage: Usually covers the team in an illusion that avoids them being discovered.
Jesse Quick: Speedster often operates as their communications specialist given how fast she moves she frequently can get a message through before it can be sent electronically tends to be used to help evacuate team members of either team if they get into difficulty.

Will need to think further on this!

But... but.... Marvel Transformers continuity is Best Transformers Continuity1?

And who doesn't want to see Grimlock team up with Wolverine and Beast Boy?

Or the hilarious interaction between Circuit Breaker and Ironman, the Vision, Amazo and Red Tornado?

(I know the former is not actually a robot, but Josie, ain't exactly all there, yknow what I'm sayin'?)

Besides, Spider-Man met Gears that one times, mutter, mutter grumble, grumble...

...

...

...

Actually, come to think of it, Circuit Breaker going off on some tech-based hero in a pathological anti-robot rage could make for an interesting story in it's own right, in all seriousness. She has Issues.

I am going to give you extra special bonus mega points for being the first person to include Best Character Ever in one of the line ups, before even I could get to it.

Actually, the Imperial Guard was an homage to the Legion of Superheroes. That would make Gladiator (Kallark), a Superboy clone. Superman is better represented in Hyperion from the Squadron Supreme (originally Squadron Sinister).

Hype' had a great appearance in Marvel's Ultimate universe where he takes out Thor, Sue Storm and the Human Torch without breaking a sweat.

The true League of Justice:

Dr. Doom - Leader of the team and owner of the home-base stationed in Latveria far away from the corrupting influence of Richards and his ilk.

Iron Patriot - Norman Osborn with Stark technology as a second-in-command.

Black Adam - Brought on the team as a powerhouse and an advisor on mystical matters. Primary duty is to take on heavy hitting villains like Superman and Thor in a fight, or at least distract them until the others can provide cover.

Lex Luthor - Basically Batman, only on the side of righteousness. Uses his massive corporate funding for the team and has his own exo-suit to give him a fighting chance.

Sinestro - To bring some extraterrestrial influence into the game and help combat more alien threats.

Magneto - To adequately represent the growing mutant population, and also to provide much needed support against most technological threats.

Joker - Admittedly, this one is a bit of a wild card. Not sure how well he'd work with others, but he would provide ample support on street level as well as provide much needed comic relief so things never seem too bad.

Well, except for the part where with his GL ring protects him from lead. To the point where he actually has lead poisoning, but will never suffer ill effects from it as long as he wears his ring. So, yeah, he's Superman + Green Lantern, without the weaknesses of either (since, in addition to the above, Ion never runs out of power like a ring does).

Well of course DC ruined Gen13 when they bought Wildstorm. It was one of the few Image comics I really liked, since it was fairly lighthearted. And Fairshild was my favorite.

I see a lot of Justice Leagues...but you know what this thread needs?

The LEAGUE OF DOOM!

Pacing in his halls of granite, a lone man with a staff of crystal and a horned helm gazes into a long mirror. There, within the silver sheen of the reflective glass, he could see his brother and his new allies. The heroes exalted at their supposed victory. The Justice League of America. Well, Thor was not the only one who could find allies amongst the mortals.

The mirror wavers, and a new image forms upon it. A pod, travelling through space. Within, a monster of another era. A being of insurmountable rage, and the only creature which could pose a threat to the mighty Kryptonian Superman. Doomsday would not be missed from the time stream for a few moments-more than enough time to achieve their goals.

Again the mirror wavers, and a third image comes forth. A scientist's laboratory, filled with beakers, test tubs and blue flames. And a sorcerer's tome. The Vile God instinctively knew the occupant of this place, a master of both science and sorcery. Doom. It only made sense. No one else could match Stark's pure mechanical mastery, and Doom's delving into the sorcerous arts made gave him just the edge this new force would need. Provided Doom was willing to work with others

A new place appears in the mirror. A place of shinning glass towers, floating vehicles, and gilded streets. Not unlike Asgard, the Betrayer muses. But, no. This is Midgard, in the far-flung future. It is then that a streak of light can be seen. Surely the mirror has not shown some future version of the Flash, the speedster allied with Thor? Ah, but no. As the blur slows, the costume can be seen: Not red with yellow markings, but the opposite. This is Professor Zoom, the Reverse-Flash. A perfect mirror of the true Flash, a perfect match in speed and strength, but infinitely more devious.

Once again, the mirror shifts. An island, isolated from the rest of the world. A city, once built on the backs of slaves, but now a mark for freedom-of a sort. And there, seated upon a throne, staring directly back at the God of Mischief, was the city's king. The self-styled Mutant Master of Magnetism, Erik Magnus Lehnsherr was the perfect line of defense against Thor's own mutant ally, Jean Gray. The helmet Magneto worn(one easily replicated by the smiths residing in the castle once obtained) would stop the witch's telepathic powers, and Magneto's ability to manipulate magnetic fields made him almost as dangerous a telekinetic as Gray. The raw intellect of the forces being assembled was staggering.

For a last time, the mirror changes. A prison, outside a war-torn city. The Asylum was most likely the safest place in Gotham, and yet the humans kept their criminals within. Such folly. But the Theif of Honor did not have time to spend thinking on such trivalities. There was one in particular here, one who would prove to be a great adversary against the one called Wayne. Yes, Cell #360, home to Pamela Lillian Isley, better known as Poison Ivy. The chemicals within her blood would provide a adaptable array of attacks against the so-called Dark Knight, and her enchanting pheromones would render mortal authorities most suggestable.

The crystal staff taps the ground, and in a brilliant flash of green-gold light, five of the most horrific villains from throughout time and space find themselves removed from the comforts of their own lives, and in the middle of a throne room. There, seated upon a massive granite throne, was the man who had summoned them. "Greetings, my new friends. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Loki, Demon Prince and Lord of Lies, and I have a proposition for you...."

If I could assemble a team from any comic series it would probably look like this:

- Batman (preferably from the "Red Son" alternate universe, because then he would have that amazing hat).

- Fone Bone (from the "Bone" comics, he would provide minor comic relief and moral support, he is also capable of making excellent quiches).

- Scott Pilgrim (if his life had a face, I would punch it).

- Rorachach (not as well trained or equipped as someone like Batman, but infinitely more brutal, would serve as the nice, terrifying aspect of the team).

- Morpheus (from Neil Gaiman's "Sandman", becaue it's always important to have an immortal, semi-deity-like being on the team).

- Tycho (from "Penny Arcade", he provides necessary wit and cynicism).

Their team name would be "The League of Ridica-Coolness", because using "ridica" as a prefix is something we should do more often.

Batman recognizing the risks at state calls in as much of the bat family as he can, and agrees to align his resources with SHIELD to get through this crisis. The best of SHIELD's agents are also present. WIth a few others who could be convinced / blackmailed into helping.

Justice League of Earth:

Superman - Leader
Dr. Strange - Mentor/Co-Leader
Thor -
Wonder Woman -
Jean Grey -
Rogue -
Hulk -
Storm -
Batman - The Smartguy


I"m not sure how to write a plot/setting with all these guys in it, but this is the coolest idea for a new Justice League I could think of. Other than the X-Men being massacred by an evil alliance, I can't think of anything else to tie them in.

Iron Man (Ultimate tech guy)
Superman (When you need a tank, go with the very best)
Martian Manhunter (Great back up tank, plus communication expert with telepathy, covert opts with his shape shifting and invisibility)
Dr Fate (Magic expert)
Reed Richards (Tech guy, but more from a "pure science" aspect. General science support, with an MBA in Comic Book Science (A.K.A. anything with Kirby Dots)
Captain America (As a huge fan of Batman I say that Captain is a stronger tactical leader, and less likely to go off mission)

That would be my top 6 off the top of my head. For 8 members I'd go with Batman and Flash.
