Previous Post

Iron Man (Tony Stark) - Overall Leader. Brains-Tactics-Charisma-and quite powerful providing the resources the team needs.

The Enchantress (Amora) - A goddess-the Magic-redeemable villain-quite a powerhouse if not quite on Thors level

The Falcon (Anthony Mackie Movie Sam Wilson / Falcon) - Streetwise-military connections-combat tactician-heart of gold who could help keep the team grounded and down to earth

...this kinda gives me my big 3...I always was more interested in the versions that have the big 3 in them...

Jean Grey - Telepath/Telekinetic-mutant connections to Xavier & X-men-connections to cosmic and interstellar Phoenix/Shiar etc...-very good team player

Nico Minoru - The young Avenger that will bring a different prospective to events - great potential interaction with Amora - a wildcard of power - a leader in training-perhaps one of the reasons Amora joins the team combined with Stark having redeemed and helped more villains turn over a new leaf than anyone else I can think of

Thing (Ben Grimm) - Powerhouse brick-ties to the FF4-a no quit heart of gold hero-a never quit hero of pure will that needs a family

Karima Shapandar (Earth-12131) - because I like to add a random person that has had little exposure-she has direct links to Tony Stark-what fun an Omega Sentinel on a team with mutants!-fills in the spot I was thinking of putting the Vision in-human/machine hybrid-interdimensional connections/storyline potentials


...so a terrible team? \:\)


I also considered Amora for one of mine, because she has shown some complexity...capacity for remorse, but ruthlessness for what she wants...and the Avengers do have a history of rehabilitating super villains. I also thought about Absorbing Man and Titania...if Marvel hadn't backpedaled after the DeFalco push of them reforming it could have worked well.

I like your other pics as well, with enough characters to make it still feel like an Avengers team, with Iron Man and Falcon, with Nico...

As I mentioned with one of my other lists, I like the idea of the really powerful characters on the team being less competent at using their powers...it would also work if they were 'reforming' bad guys....so a resurrected Skurge (who's death is one of my favorite moments in comics) wanting to be honorable, with Amora (who had a hard time adjusting to his death), coming along and showing some depth...but they're the Avengers 'big guns', with lower to mid tier classic Avengers leading the way...could make for some interesting dynamics... If you feel the need to have a powerful 'counter', you could throw Tarene on there and be Asgardian heavy, and that would be interesting (I know she isn't asgardian, but her powers are based on the Thor template....and also would allow resolution to her as the Designate, who gave up most of her powers to help Odin defeat Surtur)...

So, something like

Captain America
Skurge
Amora
Thor Girl
and some lesser powered guys to fill it out...choosing 2-3 from a list of Avengers or Avengers related characters, to cover tech and a few other spots:

Sam Wilson
Scott Lang
Wasp
Black Knight
Beast
Stingray (yeah, not exactly classic, but could be a low to mid tier
with some tech and versatility)
maybe Luke Cage, though maybe more powerful than I'd like
Miles Morales
Gauntlet...

Hmm...let me think
How about I pick

Wasp
Stingray
and Gauntlet

So you end up with two Avenger's mainstays in Cap and Wasp, Gauntlet who is justifiably a member, and Stingray who was strongly affiliated for quite a while, if a minor character with a lot to explore, then the three Asgardian based powerhouses, one still acting like a newb and not a good fighter, the other two powerhouse 'reforming' villains...and too powerful for the veterans to really keep in check...
