Reply Subj: Original Teams vs. Later Incarnations: who wins?
Posted: Wed Sep 20, 2017 at 03:58:17 pm EDT (Viewed 176 times)

    Avengers (1963): Thor (Odinson), Hulk (Bruce Banner), Iron Man (Tony Stark), Ant-Man (Hank Pym), Wasp (Janet Van Dyne)
    Avengers (2017): Thor (Jane Foster), Hercules, Vision, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Wasp (Nadia Pym)

2017 wins. The biggest factor is the Hulk's instability at the time. He's just as likely to fight his own team as the opponents. Also, original tin can Iron Man is a joke.

    Champions (1975): Hercules, Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze), Iceman, Angel, Black Widow
    Champions (2017): Hulk (Amadeus Cho), Viv, Nova (Sam Alexander), Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan)

Going with the classics here. The new Champions have a lot of baggage and I don't see any of them surviving the penance stare.

    Guardians of the Galaxy (1969): Starhawk, Major Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex, Yondu
    Guardians of the Galaxy (2013): Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord (Peter Quill)

Leaning towards the modern team but have to pass as I don't know enough about the old team. I remember Starhawk from the Korvac Saga and he could be a game changer...just don't know enough.

    Justice League (1960): Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Martian Manhunter, Flash (Barry Allen), Aquaman, Batman (Bruce Wayne)
    Justice League (1987): Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson), Captain Marvel (Billy Batson), Green Lantern (Guy Gardner), Doctor Light (Kimiyo Hoshi), Black Canary, Mister Miracle (Scott Free), Blue Beetle

This is PC Supes. He wins on his own.

    Teen Titans (1970): Kid Flash (Wally West), Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), Hawk (Hank Hall), Dove (Don Hall), Robin (Dick Grayson), Speedy (Roy Harper), Lilith Clay
    Teen Titans (2003): Kid Flash (Bart Allen), Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandmark), Superboy (Kon-El), Starfire, Robin (Tim Drake), Cyborg, Beast Boy

Edging 2003. Kon-El brings raw power and Cyborg a tech edge that the old team can't stand up to.

    X-Men (1963): Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Iceman, Cyclops, Angel, Beast
    X-Men (1980): Storm, Colossus, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler

Interesting. The originals are going to be thrown off their game by Wolverine's savagery but ultimately the 1980 version has no psi defense. After seeing her friends take a beating Jean ups her game and unleashes for the win.
