    Default Create Your Team

    So it seems to be people aren't feeling Doc Justice and the J-Force. So if you could create a new team of heroes what would you call it and whom would you want on it?

    Me, I would have Pepper Potts, Toni Ho, Riri Williams and Lila Rhodes form an all powered armor team of Rescue, Iron Patriot, Ironheart and the new War Machine. Call it...Iron Maidens!

    Pepper could be the team leader with her experience, and Riri bieng the youngest on the team being a little impetuous. Lila could have serious doubts about adopting her uncle's legacy and I could see Toni having reservations about being on a team with somebody named War Machine since she is a pacifist.

    So thoughts? What team would you want to see?

    The Snikts

    I'd go madcap GotG premise but with a mutant cast, and make it VERY tangential to Xavier Institute melodrama. I'd make it based on Lila Cheney's intergalactic music career: she owes money to the "space mob", but only knows how to make money in the entertainment business. She suckers Dazzler into "fronting a new act" and gets a few other X-Men to round out the band. Lila says she'll teach them their instruments, but it's really because she knows the X-Men are an elite fighting force and will save her if the mob finds her before the money's won.

    Lila Cheney as svengali-like manager, Guido Carosella as security. Alison Blaire on vocals, James Proudstar on guitar, Jesse Bedlam on bass, Trinary on drums.

    That could be a lot of fun. It does make me wonder if any of the X-Men are musically inclined other than Dazzler. Armor, for example. It would be cool if we found out she is a fair drummer.

    That would be interesting, I had considered making room for a kid to stowaway with the team, but I wasnt sure who would be appropriate.

    Lila knows Guido, they worked together before.
    Lila knows Dazzler, mutant musicians
    Dazzler knows Warpath, they were on the most recent Astonishing X-Men
    Warpath knows Bedlam, they were on Pete Wisdom's X-Force
    Guido knows Forge, from X-Factor... but I'm supposing that Trinary is Forge's employee.

    Did Dazzler coach an Academy squad? Did X-Force or X-Factor ever mentor adolescents? I don't want to put X-23 in space.

    The Academy X era? No, she didn't, as far as we know. The revealed squad advisors were Mirage, Emma Frost, Cyclops, Wolfsbane, Northstar, Storm, Karma (who took over Northstar's Alpha Squadron when he died) and Magma (who took over Wolfsbane's team when she switched to X-Factor - only for the storyline to end there due to Decimation).

    I would bring back some version of Marvel knights.

    It could be a flexible team who look after the people of New York. The line up to ebb and flow like old time Defenders but with a solid base of NY hero.

    Spiderman
    Cage
    DD
    iron Fist
    Shang Chi
    Jessica Jones
    Madame Web
    Moonknight
    Hawkeye (Kate)
    HellCat
    Misty Knight
    Colleen
    Falcon

    I am not married to any name use and old one ore create a new one I don't care. I see it as a team similar to Avengers World but focused for the most part on NYC.

    They keep trying to make that work and it never seems to catch on, though. Heroes For Hire a few years ago was good but didn't last, and Bendis' Defenders kind've tanked. Having Spider Man on the team would certainly be a boost if they used him prominently.

    Did it tank or did Bendis just move on? I really liked that series and Marquez's art was awesome.

    Agreed I really like the series too and the art was insanely good in it. How it ended was a bit weird, but that was likely due to the Bendis move

    yeah plus Bendis left and it was his baby. Maybe 4 characters is not enough ( I know the FF but still ) That last page of the run left me wanting more.

    I like it your team, my team would be similar just change Iron Heart for Bethany Cabe (Iron Woman) and add Trinary (she can randomly make a awesome armor from everyone else’s armors) and Kiri Oshiro (616) as Mecha. I’d add Iron Heart for later and have Iron Spider (MJ) as an ally once in a while. Call it the Iron Legion, and Arno be the head behind this, because Tony Stark disappeared and Arno is filling in for Iron Man, but can't do it alone, so he needs backup in the form of the Iron Legion
