Like some of the other posts, I want you to build your Legion or Legion's of Substitute heroes

For those of you not familiar, DC had several teams that...weren't very good...intentionally, but some actually contributed in big ways. The legion of Substitute heroes all failed in tryouts for the Legion of Superheroes....they had powers that were wither unimpressive, usually ineffective, or with big drawbacks...but they saved the day at least once....

Inferior Five, in pre crisis had some powerful characters, like Awkwardman who was amphibious with super strength, but as clumsy as clumsy smurf. Dumb Bunny who was super strong and durable, but brains like Savage Hulk. White Feather was an archer who struggled with cowardace. The Blimp could fly...slower than a normal walking pace. I don't remember the 5th character off the top of my head....still, they got some wins.

I guess the short lived Great Lakes Avengers kind of fall into this category...I'd lump in Justice league Antarctica in too, though I don't remember then actually defeating anyone...but with Gnort AND the Scarlet Skier they were pretty powerful....

Anyway, see if you can build a Marvel, DC, and/or multiversal team with has been, never was, and/or unlikely and widely disrespected characters that JUST MIGHT have a shot at saving the world in a last ditch effort....


Squirrel Girl

Mr Immortal

Doorman

Clock King - of JLA fame

Major Disaster

Cypher - is pretty bad-ass now

Warlock - a coward, but with Cypher is again, pretty bad ass

Madam Fatal - might actually get close enough to knock out Joker or Lex Luthor.

Night Girl - weak 50% of the time, in space she can fly due to legion ring and in darkness is as strong as Superman,
