    I would like this. Somehow I can already see it, drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith.

Is he still in the game?

    Baron Mordo is a must. Wouldn't be worth doing without him.

Agreed. I think the story would be pointless without his being on the team.

    Next I would add Morgan Le Fay and Modred the Mystic.

I responded to this below. I thought Morgan too powerful, Modred too dead. \:\)

    I like Diablo a lot but I don't think he considers himself to be a magician. In his mind, alchemy is science. He probably wouldn't fit in, so I would only use him if I purposely wanted someone who didn't quite fit.

I guess I just like Diablo so much I would want to see him on the team. Also, I like the idea of an alchemist being on the team. You have Juggernaut as muscle, Black Talon for Voodoo and/or necromancy, Baron Mordo for straight up sorcery, etc. Diablo could be there to prove to the others just how superior his ancient science is to their supernatural foolishness.

    I tend to distinguish between magicians and magical beings. Doctor Strange is of course a magician, while the Scarlet Witch is a magical being; I.e., Strange had to study and train for years to become what he is, while for Wanda it all just comes naturally. I deem the Enchantress a magical being, and my own preference is to not use her, and to stick instead with magicians like Mordo, Morgan, and Modred. (Hmm. OK, that's weird, all three names start with "M" for magic.)

I can see Enchantress getting booted from the team, but I guess I wanted at least one woman there, and a powerful one at that. But by your definition is Morgan a magical being? She is half faerie so she already had inherent magical powers.

    I wish we could use some of Conan's enemies.

I'm not sure why they couldn't be used. Kulan Gath crossed over from Red Sonja to the MU to fight the X-Men and Avengers, for example.
