Reply Subj: Original Teams vs. Later Incarnations: who wins?

    Avengers (1963): Thor (Odinson), Hulk (Bruce Banner), Iron Man (Tony Stark), Ant-Man (Hank Pym), Wasp (Janet Van Dyne)
    Avengers (2017): Thor (Jane Foster), Hercules, Vision, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Wasp (Nadia Pym)

Unless Hulk goes gonzo, I'd give it to the modern team. However, take into account it's VERY rare for both Herc and Thor to be on the core team simultaneously. I'd say the average five-person team would get trounced by the originals.

    Champions (1975): Hercules, Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze), Iceman, Angel, Black Widow
    Champions (2017): Hulk (Amadeus Cho), Viv, Nova (Sam Alexander), Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan)

Originals are far stronger and more experienced.

    Guardians of the Galaxy (1969): Starhawk, Major Vance Astro, Charlie-27, Martinex, Yondu
    Guardians of the Galaxy (2013): Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord (Peter Quill)

I prefer the originals sentimentally, but they're not all that high-powered, and would lose to the modern version.

    Justice League (1960): Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Martian Manhunter, Flash (Barry Allen), Aquaman, Batman (Bruce Wayne)
    Justice League (1987): Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson), Captain Marvel (Billy Batson), Green Lantern (Guy Gardner), Doctor Light (Kimiyo Hoshi), Black Canary, Mister Miracle (Scott Free), Blue Beetle

Originals easily unless Fate manages to magically take out a couple of the big guns.

    Teen Titans (1970): Kid Flash (Wally West), Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), Hawk (Hank Hall), Dove (Don Hall), Robin (Dick Grayson), Speedy (Roy Harper), Lilith Clay
    Teen Titans (2003): Kid Flash (Bart Allen), Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandmark), Superboy (Kon-El), Starfire, Robin (Tim Drake), Cyborg, Beast Boy

I'd say the new team is much higher-powered.

    X-Men (1963): Marvel Girl (Jean Grey), Iceman, Cyclops, Angel, Beast
    X-Men (1980): Storm, Colossus, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Nightcrawler

I'd say the originals later on in their career could take out the new kids, but just starting out? The new team beats them.
