    Default Your Dream pick Avengers Roster

    I'm new here so I'm not sure whether there's been a thread like this previously, but I'm thinking that Avenger fans might enjoy postings Rosters of Avengers that they dream up. Go crazy as you like. No maximum no minimums. Include Villains, Currently dead characters, Co Workers. Whatever. Lets just have fun and not get so cranky. So I'll try one. Let's see.... uh

    Cap
    Ironman
    Uh....
    Thor....

    There were other ones right? Now let'see....

    Captain America
    Iron-Man
    Wasp
    Hawkeye
    Scarlet Witch
    Spider-man
    Storm
    Invisible Woman
    Songbird
    Nova

    This is a roster I've always found appealing, as it includes representatives of all of Marvel's main series franchises such as Spider-man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Thunderbolts, Cosmic etc. I'd also like to see villains pulled in from all over for the Avengers to fight, from the Sinister Six to the Brotherhood, Frightful Four etcetc on top of the traditional Avengers foes like Ultron, Kang. I think the only main franchise/lore rep it's missing is Thor and Hulk, but Thor's powerset is covered by Storm and I quite like the idea of a more grounded power level roster (well, with the exception of Nova, lol). I also just like the character mixture and possible chemistry - you have some of the big Avengers mainstays there as well as some of those fun unexpected members. Power and personality set is vibrant and mixed, and I think interactions could be cool. And it really is about time Songbird was brought in as a proper member. :P

    I was actually planning on making this thread today, myself.

    I suppose I'll make a new document to track responses, since it's a new forum.


    Anyway, a short, non-themed team, before I start re-doing all my big teams following different themes:

    Captain Marvel (Carol, natch)
    Giant Man (Pym)
    Shadowcat
    Living Lightning
    Firebird
    American Eagle
    Jennifer Kale
    Songbird
    She-Hulk

    Captain Marvel leads. Carol and She-Hulk provide raw strength, though Carol also flies and does energy blasts. Giant Man, aside from providing a little extra strength, is the main brains, with Shadowcat also helping out there. Shadowcat is also the main stealth member. Living Lightning and Firebird are energy wielders. Songbird also wields energy, but she's a lot more versatile. Jennifer Kale adds a mystical element. And American Eagle is a close combat expert.

    And now, to start coming up with some long sets of teams. Woot!

    Which Nova are you all talking about? Richard or Sam?

    And Punisher, which Ghost Rider? I assume Blaze? Or do you mean Robbie Reyes?

    Blaze of course. As for Nova, I'd prefer Richard, but either one works for me. I do not share the abject hatred of Sam that many others seem to.

    I like the idea.of teams or partnerships within teams. That way they can easily deal with threats that fit their baliwick by splitting off when the whole team isn't necessary. I also like one on one interaction between personalities which might clash a bit in some cases.

    Captain America/Wasp as the leaders, they can split the team in half when needed.
    Thor/Hercules for the muscle, but who also bring the gods into the mix, including god level problems. Kind of want to see Storm here, who says Marvel can't invent their own pantheon of young gods
    Doctor Strange/Wiccan I really want to see a young magic user have a mentor, and I would love to see Strange in that role. They open up the mystical side of things. Jennifer Kale and/or Talismen would be characters brought in for specific stories.
    Moondragon/Emma Frost (with her power restored). Both with big egos to match their talent. Moondragon also has spent some time in space, and can bring those stories.
    Hawkeye/Nightcrawler both use weapons, but Hawkeye is more street, where Kurt always has an old fashioned swashbuckling feel to me. I also see Black widow at this level.
    Bruce Banner/Hank Pym/Tony Stark I list in their own scientific genius section, although obviously their alter egos bring a multitudes of talents.
    Nova (Richard Rider)/Spitfire (I think that is the name of the British hero) to open up space and a connection to a team that doesn't get enough love.

    While Avengers should always be a team book most of the time, it would be nice to have small side stories which highlight the mini teams doing what they do best, later to integrate them into the main story.

    Captain America
    Namor
    Thor
    Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
    Kitty Pryde
    Spider-Man
    Reed Richards
    Doctor Strange (and Wiccan being trained by him)

    I reckon this is a varied enough team, Cap would lead but theirs people there to call him out on his s*** if he's acting out, there's a mix of magic,genius,heavy hitters,flying and just general great heroes. There'd be some tension and falling out but hey it'd be boring if there weren't. Theirs probably some I'm forgetting and some who I like but wouldn't fit in (Cyclops).

    My team for today: An updated Uncanny Avengers.

    Uncanny Avengers
    Kitty Pryde
    Wasp
    Karma
    Nightcrawler
    Sunspot
    Scarlet Witch
    Alexis
    Captain Marvel

    Kitty is chosen as leader/frontwoman. She's intelligent and experienced, and would make an effective leader. More important, she's well-spoken, outspoken and - admittedly - non-threateningly attractive. This makes her a good choice to put in front of cameras. Wasp is the co-leader, the main Avengers representative on the team. She's rich, and as a fashion designer, she knows how to work the public. Since this is a PR team, that gives Wasp a fairly unique advantage.

    For the X-Men side, Kitty chooses Karma, Nightcrawler and Sunspot. Karma's a good friend, and her library background makes her effective at organization. Her telepathic powers also make her an asset in the field. Nightcrawler is one of her oldest, closest friends. More important, he's a visible mutant - he can't hide what he is. Kitty wanted someone on the team who can't hide being a mutant. And then she chooses Sunspot because he practically begged to be allowed onto the team. He's rich, which is handy, and has already served as an Avenger. He's also charming as hell, and makes nice eyecandy for women.

    For the Avengers side, Wasp chooses Scarlet Witch, Vision and Monica Rambeau. Scarlet Witch is a mutant who's served with the Avengers almost from the start, which makes her a reasonable choice to Wasp. Alexis is neither human nor mutant, and serves to show that the Avengers welcome all forms of life. She's also pretty powerful. And Captain Marvel, while she's lost her emotional connection to the X-Men, does have a history with them. Kitty and Kurt, in particular, remember when she stayed with them after Rogue drained her powers. Carol's also a very prominent hero with a lot of public recognition and acceptance. Plus, she's a major powerhouse.

    This team has it pretty well together. There are some conflicts - Kitty's a headstrong young woman, and clashes with Wasp quite a bit, and Wanda still thinks she should be in charge of the team. Karma's a bit overwhelmed at being an Avenger. Wanda finds herself tense around Alexis, as Alexis reminds her of the Vision. Carol is a little uncomfortable with Kitty and Kurt being so familiar with her, while she only knows what she's read about them.

    Still, they're all experienced heroes, so when it comes to action, they function well together. They're a little more proactive than is normal - they need to be seen working together, so they look for chances to do that. Sometimes by actively looking for supervillains to fight, other times by just helping out with disaster relief. They also do a lot of charity work, and engage in some political activism, organizing rallies, doing interviews, that sort of thing.
