Previous Post

The rules are simple:
1. You can only use a character ONCE. If Wolverine's in Avengers, no putting him in Thunderbolts. [HINT HINT - Marvel... maybe think about that one, you have SO many heroes, why put one on ten different teams?  That could be ten different heroes... and the continuity... BAH!]
2. That is all. \:\)

AVENGERS
From the original concept: a team of superheroes gathered together to take on foes no single hero can battle themselves. This team focuses on events in America... East Coast.
LEADER =
Classic Choice/Former Avenger =
Guns/Power Suit =
Outsider/Never Been an Avenger Before =
Powerhouse/In Emergency =
Street Fighter/Human Hero =
and
Tech Support/Science Guy =

DARK AVENGERS
The "anti-heroes". They don't play right, they don't play fair, and they don't take prisoners. The team that villains fear! This team globe trots, smacking down load-mouths through-out the world.
- Extra Rule: All team members MUST have a "classic" Avengers name; Man-killer must become Wasp, Speed Demon must become Quicksilver, Enchantress must become Scarlet Witch etc. :)
- Extra Rule: Also, all members must be "okay" will killing someone (e.g. no saints, only sinners)

LEADER =
Current Dark Avenger =
Guns/Power Suit =
Outsider/Not a current Dark Avengers =
Powerhouse/In Emergency =
Street Fighter/Human Anti-Hero =
and
Tech Support/Science Guy =

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
This team will focus SOLELY in space; and they are the last stand against the Kree, the Skrull, the Shi'ar and the kitchen sink. An ability to breath in space would be a plus ;\)
LEADER =
Asgardian/God =
Cosmic Being =
Robotic/Cyborg/Not Human =
Outsider/Never Been in Space Before =
Space Being (Kree, Skrull, Shi'ar etc) =
and
Someone WAY Out of Their Depth =

THUNDERBOLTS
The former villains turned heroes, out to solve the mysteries (think X-factor meets Thunderbolts). Redemption is the name of the game. If a villain or hero needs redeeming, here's the place to come. (the more obscure the better).
- Extra Rule: A-listers NOT welcome ;\)
LEADER =
Former Thunderbolt =
Mutant =
Obscure Hero (in need of redemption) =
Obscure Villain (in need of redemption) =
Size Changing =
and
Tech Support/Power Suit =

X-MEN

The leader of the mutants (all 200 of them). Time to take a stand, and fight the good fight, and follow Xavier's dream of a world where mutants and humans live as one. This team focuses on events in America... West Coast.
- Extra Rule: Non-mutants NOT allowed.
LEADER =
Former Villain =
Flight/Outcast =
Powerhouse/Omega Level =
Science Guy/Healer =
Telepath =
and
Young One/Idealist =

DARK X-MEN
Screw Xavier's dream, it's Magneto's dream that rules this day. Mutants are the next stage of evolution; and will not stand for being treated as freaks and monsters! Evil rears it's ugly head, the Dark X-men put it down hard, whether it mutants... or human. It's going down!  This team focuses on place "off the beaten track" (aka Hell, other Dimensions, Savage Land - like a 616 based Exile team, but the origin of all the problems stem from Earth).
LEADER =
Classic X-man =
Former Villain =
Multiple Powers =
Powerhouse/Omega Level =
Telepath =
and
Villain =

X-FORCE
The Black Ops mutants (think current Thunderbolts meets X-men). It's a feral eats feral world out-there. And some mutants don't deserve the chance to see who's dream comes through; Xavier's or Magneto's. It's time to take out the trash... permanently...
- Extra Rule: a "ten kills" minimum is required to be on this team
LEADER =
Kills w. a Claw/Fist =
Kills w. a Gun =
Kills w. their powers =
the Healer/the Innocence... not necessarily a killer =
the "Hero"... slipping into Darkness... not necessarily a killer =
and
the Wild Card/possible traitor/or insane =

THE DEFENDERS
Kind of a "behind the scenes" team; that tackles the mystery and hidden side of the Marvel world. Magic, mystical, mythological and time travel. Beware... your brain hurts from the confusing time line/reversing spells/reversing timelines.
LEADER =
Freak/Outcast =
Mystic =
Non-Human =
Powerful Mutant =
Regular Hero/Non-uber power =
and
Superstrong =

"YOUNG" MARVEL
Young X-men. Young Avengers. Runaways. Avengers: the Initiative. You name it; if it's Under 25's, it's welcome (boy does that sound dirty, I'm 24 so it's not "so" wrong if I say it... I guess... ;)) If drama, social life and boys (or girls... whatever) is all your team can think about, you're on the right track.  This team focuses on the drama of living on a small island off Scotland... random!
THE BOSS =
the Bad Ass =
the Geek =
the "kid" =
the Jock/Cheerleader (aka the "pretty" one) =
the Mutant
and
the Runaway =



I am not really much into the DARK teams and some of your choices are odd (such as insisting on an asgardian in space or a runaway on the kids team) but i will try my best. Sometimes following your qualifiers gets me a team very different than I would choose, but that is part of the fun I guess. (note: x-men, avengers, and young marvel differ from my choices, especially X-men and young marvel). I may make a second post later showing my own picks without following these rules.
AVENGERS
From the original concept: a team of superheroes gathered together to take on foes no single hero can battle themselves. This team focuses on events in America... East Coast.
LEADER = Captain America (steve)
Classic Choice/Former Avenger = Living Lightning
Guns/Power Suit = Iron Man
Outsider/Never Been an Avenger Before = Nightcrawler
Powerhouse/In Emergency = Thor
Street Fighter/Human Hero = Hawkeye
and
Tech Support/Science Guy = Pym

DARK AVENGERS
The "anti-heroes". They don't play right, they don't play fair, and they don't take prisoners. The team that villains fear! This team globe trots, smacking down load-mouths through-out the world.
- Extra Rule: All team members MUST have a "classic" Avengers name; Man-killer must become Wasp, Speed Demon must become Quicksilver, Enchantress must become Scarlet Witch etc.
- Extra Rule: Also, all members must be "okay" will killing someone (e.g. no saints, only sinners)

LEADER = Captain America (the general, though taskmaster will help with training his role is mostly behind the scenes while general takes the real lead)
Current Dark Avenger = Sentry (oblivious that Cap is his old nemesis)
Guns/Power Suit = Iron Man (one of the crimson dyamo pilots who just defected to the U.S.)
Outsider/Not a current Dark Avengers = Spider-Man (bloodspider)
Powerhouse/In Emergency = Ares
Street Fighter/Human Anti-Hero = Hawkeye (jagged bow in hawkeyes discarded armor costume)
and
Tech Support/Science Guy = Fixer (capitalizing on thunderbolts reform by using his original name)

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
This team will focus SOLELY in space; and they are the last stand against the Kree, the Skrull, the Shi'ar and the kitchen sink. An ability to breath in space would be a plus
LEADER = Nova
Asgardian/God = Swashbuckler (fandral in a new costume using an assumed name and uru swords that can cut through space itself if needed)
Cosmic Being = captain universe (a shi'ar who managed to make a device to capture the unipower within him)
Robotic/Cyborg/Not Human = douglock
Outsider/Never Been in Space Before = Gibbon
Space Being (Kree, Skrull, Shi'ar etc) = Glom from the imperial guard
and
Someone WAY Out of Their Depth = Jolt

THUNDERBOLTS
The former villains turned heroes, out to solve the mysteries (think X-factor meets Thunderbolts). Redemption is the name of the game. If a villain or hero needs redeeming, here's the place to come. (the more obscure the better).
- Extra Rule: A-listers NOT welcome
LEADER = Mach IV
Former Thunderbolt = Songbird
Mutant = Toad
Obscure Hero (in need of redemption) = Ultragirl (having second thoughts on supporting the initiative)
Obscure Villain (in need of redemption) = Sandman
Size Changing = Atlas
and
Tech Support/Power Suit = Mad Thinker
I’d throw juggernaut into the mix as well.
This team is interesting as it has both reformed villains and villains who failed at reforming, as well as the adventure it will explore in depth into why some reform attempts fail,

X-MEN

The leader of the mutants (all 200 of them). Time to take a stand, and fight the good fight, and follow Xavier's dream of a world where mutants and humans live as one. This team focuses on events in America... West Coast.
- Extra Rule: Non-mutants NOT allowed.
LEADER = Professor Xavier
Former Villain = Blob
Flight/Outcast = Cannonball (the flyer)
Powerhouse/Omega Level = Colossus (going for powerhouse here not omega)
Science Guy/Healer = Beast
Telepath = Jean Grey
and
Young One/Idealist = Flatman (going for idealist not youth, as a former GLA he is exuberant to finally be in the big league and has a very idealized view of it. I always wanted to see a GLA member graduate to the big leagues)
(DARK X-MEN

Screw Xavier's dream, it's Magneto's dream that rules this day. Mutants are the next stage of evolution; and will not stand for being treated as freaks and monsters! Evil rears it's ugly head, the Dark X-men put it down hard, whether it mutants... or human. It's going down! This team focuses on place "off the beaten track" (aka Hell, other Dimensions, Savage Land - like a 616 based Exile team, but the origin of all the problems stem from Earth).
LEADER = Emma Frost
Classic X-man = Cyclops
Former Villain = Banshee (well, his first appearance was as a villain though he was mind controlled I think)
Multiple Powers = M
Powerhouse/Omega Level = rogue
Telepath = Empath (emma already leads, why would they need another)
and
Villain = Mystique

X-FORCE
The Black Ops mutants (think current Thunderbolts meets X-men). It's a feral eats feral world out-there. And some mutants don't deserve the chance to see who's dream comes through; Xavier's or Magneto's. It's time to take out the trash... permanently...
- Extra Rule: a "ten kills" minimum is required to be on this team
LEADER = Wolverine
Kills w. a Claw/Fist = Pete Wisdom (hot knives)
Kills w. a Gun = Domino
Kills w. their powers = Cable
the Healer/the Innocence... not necessarily a killer = Jubilee
the "Hero"... slipping into Darkness... not necessarily a killer = Feral (didn’t she slip into darkness already? Not sure)
and
the Wild Card/possible traitor/or insane = Deadpool

THE DEFENDERS
Kind of a "behind the scenes" team; that tackles the mystery and hidden side of the Marvel world. Magic, mystical, mythological and time travel. Beware... your brain hurts from the confusing time line/reversing spells/reversing timelines.
LEADER = Brother Voodoo
Freak/Outcast = Gargoyle
Mystic = (can’t think of a good one as I have a few here already)
Non-Human = Howard the Duck
Powerful Mutant = Magik (Ilyana)
Regular Hero/Non-uber power = Black Knight
and
Superstrong = Awesome Android
I’d also throw in Shang Chi, Trauma, Manwolf, Blade, and Bloodstone the monster hunter as members.
This team would very much fit in as a “marvel shadow pact” feel. It has a duck instead of a chimp, a gargoyle instead of a blue devil, and a black knight instead of a knight master but I still like this line-up. I am not much of a bloodstone fan but I felt a monster hunter was important to this group.

"YOUNG" MARVEL
Young X-men. Young Avengers. Runaways. Avengers: the Initiative. You name it; if it's Under 25's, it's welcome (boy does that sound dirty, I'm 24 so it's not "so" wrong if I say it... I guess... ) If drama, social life and boys (or girls... whatever) is all your team can think about, you're on the right track. This team focuses on the drama of living on a small island off Scotland... random!
THE BOSS = Darnell Taylor
the Bad Ass = Night Thrasher (dwayne)
the Geek = Whizkid
the "kid" = Molly Hayes
the Jock/Cheerleader (aka the "pretty" one) = Namorita
the Mutant= Chamber
and
the Runaway = Victor Mancha
 
I don’t like this team up much (I’d rather go with a classic new warriors, but I followed your qualifiers). However I would like victor mancha to get injured on the first outing in such a way it reveals his machine parts and he can no longer hide and forget he is a robot.
