Stavros Posted June 30, 2012 Report Share Posted June 30, 2012 Had an idea that might be fun, depending on how many are willing to join in. OK, we get lists of the best or worst comics characters all the time on the net, but this is a little different. Imagine this site is Marvel, and we're doing one of those big writer changeovers where all the teams get shuffled. Everyone who wants to sign up to this gets to be called a writer of a X-book, be it Uncanny, Astonishing, Force, Factor or whatever. We go around and in turn each pick one X-man to be on our team, draft-style. Bear in mind that a balanced team is a good idea, it's good to get strong guys, fighters, psychics, whatever. Or you can just go full on X-force and have as many sharp things as possible, up to you! I figured the X-men would be a great place to start as the most widely recognisable hero team out there. Well, there's the avengers, but try asking Joe Public who Quicksilver is and see where that gets you. Couple of rules- 1. If a character is picked then they're out of selection. If you want Kitty Pryde and she's already been picked tough luck. 2. We pick in the order that has been established from the start, with the people most recently joining Earth-2.net going first. 3. We go around one to start with people picking the name of their book, and then 7 more times for people to pick their team members, and then one further time to pick the villain for their first story. 4. If the next person due to pick doesn't pick within 24hrs the next in line can go, but the person who missed their go can still make their pick any time after that. 5. The character must be someone who has been a team member in an X-book at some point, a mutant of some kind or an otherwise significant X-men character. Remember, reformed villains are the bread and butter of the X-men franchise, so go nuts. 6. Try to keep it 616. So for example, Blink of the Age of Apocalypse is ok because she's now 616-resident, but no Ultimate universe versions please, keep it within the spirit of the books.
