The Leader of the group:
The Condor(Nova) - he's smart and vicious and seems like he was made to lead a group of less intelligent villains.
Slasher(Iron Man/Avengers) - he's not true muscle, at least I don't think he is, but a suit made out of razors that can cut iron? The concept is scarier than his appearances in the comics. Can he even sit on the couch in the Super-villain lair? I'll bet he goes to the bathroom very carefully.
The Elemental guy:
The Blizzard(Iron Man) - I loved the Michelinie/Layton era of Iron Man, especially the Justin Hammer stories with Blizzard. I think he has a pretty good look, too.
This is hard. To find a female villain I like from Silver or Bronze Age Marvel that wasn't already part of a Frightful Four-type team(These are my requirements for this challenge). I like a female villain with sex appeal who can manipulate the younger men of the team, but not over the top like many female characters from the 90's. Black Cat was the best but doesn't seem like she'd fit on a team like this.
Maybe Commanda from Untold Tales of Spider-Man. She's not era-appropriate but she was inserted into the Silver Age after the fact.
Llyra from the Sub-Mariner is a good choice. She has strength and shape-shifting abilities. But she seems more like a leader and she was a member of the Frightful Four. Still, I think I'll choose Llyra.
