    I don't know any of the characters you list above or below, but I like the idea of one super villain team made up of rogues from multiple heroes and/or hero teams.


Many thanks. The chess game is a recurring motif in comics.

DC has Checkmate.

Marvel has the Grandmaster, the Prime Mover, Hellfire's Inner Circle, Obadiah Stane, Merlin & Roma, the Gamesmaster.

It would be tempting to create a new team of supervillains based on this motif and to recycle old characters to do so, especially forgotten characters who were already associated with the Chess Set motif to begin with.
