    The armour guy: Technocrat (Geofrey Barron) Gave this guy a chance.

    The femme fatale: Encantadora (Lourdes Lucero)

    The alien warrior: Stealth (from LEGION)

    The walking dead: Deadman (Boston Brand)

    The energetic kid: Sapphire (Candance Gennaro)

    The Protoplasmic guy: Matrix 2 (a new version of the protoplasmic Supergirl, in a new identity).
    ^^^I've never thought of trying this one, now I want to!

    Funky Flashman. Roulette. Stallion. Gus Yale. Magpie.

    The rich and powerful take what they want; they steal it back for you. Sometimes pretty crappy bad guys make fairly decent good guys. They provide... Leverage.

    ^^^okay, I got around to trying this one…:


    BETTE NOIR (Contrary)
    Enemy and sometimes ally of, Martian Manhunter. Team founder and big on manipulation. She like wrapping guys around her little finger w. her powers and looks. Speaking of looks, not too many ppl know the secret she’s hiding regarding her seductive appearance.

    SHAZAM (Prime)
    Pretty straightforward swap here. Both these characters are kids in grown up bodies.

    GALAXOR (Hardcase)
    DC’s not deep on mid level characters but this one clicked for me. Like Hardcase/Prime, Galaxor’s nowhere near as strong as Shazam. He has limited flight capabilities and can fire an energy beam from his chest.

    ATOMIC KNIGHT (Prototype)
    Gardner Grayle was outfitted w. high tech atomic powered armor by STAR Labs. He’s led a small group of volunteers w. similar armor, and been a member of The Outsiders. STAR Labs routinely tweaks and upgrades his gear.

    LIAR LIAR (Pixx)
    Not the most stable character, but a powerful illusionist w. other mental powers she can call on. Bette Noir sees a lot of herself in LL and is actively mentoring the kid. LL is also good w. all types of advanced tech.

    MAXIMA (Topaz)
    Another straightforward swap. Both these characters are alien warrior Queens.

    SIMON DARK (Ghoul)
    Simon’s a living corpse. Actually he’s about 20 corpses all stitched together. He has vaguely defined magic powers, can and usually does, just pop up behind ppl, is superhumanly strong/fast and can take a LOT of physical damage.

    Well played, I also had though on the roles of Shazam and Atomic Knight, but I did choose more obscure character in their places.

    Technocrat was a deeeeep dive on your part!
    I was like, “dammit now what”. DC doesn’t have nearly as many armored guys as Marvel.

    In this thread:

    We've come up with so many amazing thing using so many interesting and forlorn characters.... Its like D.C. comics makes me more sad and wistful than anything else.
    My priority is enjoying and supporting stories of timeless heroism and conflict.
    Everything else is irrelevant.

    Yep, a lot of wasted potential being leaving forgotten.

    The Big Bad
    Trigon the Terrible, of course.

    The Dragon
    Sabbac violently enforces Trigon’s orders.

    The Starscream
    Despero is plotting. Always plotting.

    The Femme Fatale
    Scorch is dangerous on SO many levels.

    The Heir Apparent
    Kid Devil? Really? Say it ain’t so!

    The Major Domo
    Melmoth and loyal staff of red butt baboons.

    The Mortal Minions
    Hellhound, Thrill Devil, and NKVDemon.

    A devilish more than meets the eye maybe?

    Its The Hellfire Club, with a devilish theme instead of chess.

    An untold tale of Dick Grayson when he was Robin.


    ROBIN (Bucky)
    When Batman, the Justice League, and pretty much every other prominent hero all get brainwashed by a mysterious bad guy, young Robin steps up to mount a rescue mission. To do that he puts together a team of obscure and or retired heroes to try and save the day.

    COMMANDER STEEL (The Patriot)
    Patriot was never as well known as Captain America, and the super strong, invulnerable Commander never really hit the big time at DC, either.

    THE ELONGATED MAN (The Thin Man)
    Power similarities to Thin Man aside, Robin prob. feels better having an experienced detective to lean on during the mission.

    LIBERTY BELLE (Miss America)
    DC has a Miss America thatíd fit here, but I went w. Liberty Belle to switch things up.

    BLACK CONDOR (Red Raven)
    Trading one color coded avian avenger for another.

    BLUE BEETLE (Blue Diamond)
    Both characters rock the color blue. Marvelís hero was empowered by a mysterious Diamond and DCís hero by a mysterious Egyptian Scarab.

    Max Mercury (The Whizzer)
    Trading one old timey speedster for another.

    ICEMAIDEN (Jack Frost)
    DC has more ice villains than heroes, but Icemaiden has the icy blue skin tone same as Jack Frost, so Iím happy w. this pick. Plus it adds another female on the team which I like.

    I love this team and i love how you used World War II era DC characters when you could. If you wanted to stick to WWII era heroes these 3 could have probably worked as well.

    Ernie General Glory's WWII sidekick could work for Bucky
    https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Ernest_Earnest_(New_Earth)

    Stretch from Hero Hotline was active during WWII and could have been the team's Thin Man.
    https://dc.fandom.com/wiki/Thomas_Longacre_(New_Earth)

    Frostbite Young Heroes' Canadian Snow Elf has likely been around since before WWII and would work for Jack Frost.

    That is so damn clever!
    That would’ve been perfect.
