    Default Movie battle of Minas Tirith minus Army of the Dead plus 10 movie heroes

    Pre-Retcon Beyonder has been fiddling with a parallel universe and sent the movie versions of Aragorn, Gimli & Legolas to Minas Tirith before they can get the assistance of the Army of the Dead.
    They, along with Gandalf, have to watch all the Marvel character based films (Avengers, X-Men, Spider-man, any I've missed) and can select 10 heroes to assist in defending the city. Time is frozen in Middle-earth for everyone else so they can watch them several times if needed.
    Theoden brings his men at the same point as in the movie and the pirate ships supply reinforcements for the force of Mordor.

    Who would you select if you were them?
    How more or less easy is it to defend the city?

    Thor, Pheonix Jean, Ghost Rider, Iron Man, Reed-Sue-Johnny-Ben, Hulk, Xavier.
    They'd make the battle utterly trivial.

    Magneto (from either X-3 [lifting a majority of the Golden Gate Bridge with a gesture] OR First Class) would also make this trivial, I'd say more so that Reed; honestly.

    He specified heroes, wasn't sure if Magneto would qualify.

    Only heroes can be selected, so no Pheonix Jean or X-3 Magneto.
    Although with MorphyVSFischer's selection the forces of Mordor would probably run away!
    Imagine what would the Trolls would think when they see Hulk SMASH!

    Ah yeah, fair enough. Though First Class Magneto was a good guy for the majority of the movie, same as end of X-2 Jean.

    You don't really need ten. Thor, Storm, Xavier, and Magneto could win it by themselves. Plus, Reed Richards would probably talk to Gandalf and end up using Narya as a focus for his Fantasti-Defeat-Sauron-Ray.

    Also, Doc Strange has been confirmed to exist in the MCU and is getting a movie at some point. Does he count?

    Reed doesn't have the feats for it. Well, the movie version doesn't.

    He has no feats. What is he supposed to do?

    Good point. Nothing, I suppose.

    But just for the sake of argument - borrow Gandalf's power and use it to bitchslap Sauron. Big G was forbidden from matching the Dark Lord's power with power, but Strange wasn't.

    Remember the tornado gauntlet that Storm made the AF jets run in X:2? Yeah, Ororo could likely solo Sauron's army!
