    Default DC's Supernatural Teams And Their Premises

    DC has had a number of supernatural teams with varying degrees of overlap (magic, demon-hunting, mythology etc). This thread is to discuss such teams and what premise you would have them follow if you could. It can either be a team and premise that exists, a team that exists but has a premise you created for it or a new team and premise you created.

    My ideal team would be named Shadowpact, which is the only name DC has used for their mystical teams that I liked.

    It would be based out of Fate's Tower, with of course Dr. Fate as the leader.

    It would resemble Marvel's Defenders under DeMatteis.

    They would focus on fighting the unseen forces, keeping the Earth Dimension safe from possible invasions from demons and other dimensions and preventing corrupt magic users from spreading their influence.

    Characters I would for sure have in the team:

    Dr. Fate
    Bloodwynd
    Amethyst
    Etrigan
    Madame Xanadu
    Raven

    Some key enemies:

    Mordru
    Dark Opal
    Wotan
    Klarion
    Trigon
    Felix Faust
    Blackbriar Thorn
    Black Bison
    Brother Blood
    Blackstarr

    My only opinion is that Constantine should work alone. Actually, he should be kept as far away from the traditional superhero stuff as possible, like in the amazing Spurrier run going on right now.

    That seems cool, but isn't that what Justice League Dark is doing?

    "Shadowpact" definitely has a cooler ring to it though!

    To an extant, the Outlaws do when it comes to the Untitled. Which popped up in the New52 run and in the current Rebirth run.

    Perhaps.
    Just diluted due to being a Justice League team.

    I'd like to see a team-up between Giovanni Zatara and Doctor Occult - two of the earliest DC magic characters!

    Maybe a team with angels and demons would be cool.

    Zauriel, an angelic version of Deadman (or another dead character, like Dove), Etrigan, Nightmare Nurse, Raven.. maybe even John because of his blood.

    I would take the current JLD line up an revamp it. I would keep...

    1.Zatanna
    2. John Constantine

    and add...

    3. Dr. Occult
    4. Shining Knight
    5. Deadman
    6. Gypsy

    I'd have Swamp Thing & the Phantom Stranger as heavy duty reserves for those goliath emergency issues.

    This is purly for fanboy reasons though.

    Just so you know, you can propose ideas for more than one team.

    There is an obscure team called Primal Force. I was looking at the word, 'Primal', and I thought that maybe their premise is that they defend Earth from unnatural forces harming life itself. It will be a diverse team of elementals who will defend their planet from supernatural occurrences harming nature itself, and those who are connected to the primal forces of life can feel it and need to stop those threats.

    Members

    - Vixen (Representative of the Red)
    - Poison Ivy (Representative of the Green)
    - Solomon Grundy (Representative of the Rot)
    - Cyclone (Representative of the White)
    - Naiad (Representative of the Clear)

    I had a similar idea to this.

    Primal Force

    3,000 years ago, Earth faced an invasion from another dimension by a race known Tharak. The Tharak sought to drain Earth of its life force and natural resources to restore their realm which had been devastated in a war. All that stood between humanity and destruction was an army of mystics, gods, demigods and nature creatures known as the Primal Force. The Tharak were defeated but some of their agents remained plotting to continue their mission. Now a new Primal Force is assembled to defend the Earth once more.

    Vixen

    Freedom Beast

    Equinox

    Sky Alchesay

    Animal Man

    Zoraida

    Black Orchid
