dc20willsave Posted September 3, 2012 Report Share Posted September 3, 2012 Let's draft a Justice League! Imagine this site is DC, 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 DC Jusice League, be it America, International, Extreme Justice, or whatever floats your boat. Hell, might even be The Outsiders or something. Up to you. Couple of rules- 1. If a character is picked then they're out of selection. If you want Wally West and he's already been picked tough luck. 2. Turn order. We're going alphabetical by forum user names. No changing your user name to give you a better position, mostly since we're also doing a Snake Draft meaning round one is A-Z but round 2 is Z-A and so forth. It's more fair that way since First Position will get a A and C list member while Last Position will get Two B-List which averages out. 3. The first seven rounds will be character picks, followed by the initial villain of your first arc, and finally your title. If you want to go with a plot outline, then awesome. It's not required. 4. If the next person due to pick doesn't pick within 12hrs the next in line can go, but the person who missed their go can still make their pick any time after that. 5. There's a little less of a limit then there was with the X-Men draft but let's try to keep it mostly to heroes. Reformed villains are okay but it's going to look weird if The Joker is on Justice League of America. Now if you're drafting your own Suicide Squad though... 6. With the reality reboots that happen and alternate realities that happen, things get a tad bit more complicated, especially since certain characters don't exist in certain continuities. We can weigh in on this but I'm going to suggest, for the sake of simplicity, and in case someone likes a characters continuity pre or post Crisis or Flashpoint, that we set this after some kinda event comic that was a thinly veiled way to go back to the old universe with some Flashpoint elements and pre-crisis elements sneaking in (sort of like how continuity changed post-Infinite Crisis). This way, everyone gets the best elements and, if you want to use Aunt Harriet, Lady Godiva, Barry Allen, and Comet the Super-Horse on your team, go right ahead. 7. That said, with the multiple iterations of a character running through the multiverse, maybe limit things to characters that have been part of the so-called main reality ie Earth-1/New Earth. So, technically Kingdom Come Superman and Earth-2 Superman are on the table. One thing to decide: Do we want the option of people trading their picks i.e. Fourth position can trade their first round pick to Fifth Position in exchange for taking their fifth and sixth round picks. Fourth Position will have a smaller team but this way they can ensure getting those two A-List characters that they feel are necessities. For convenience, here's a list of nearly everyone who's been a member of the Justice League at some point or another. I'm leaving JSA off for right now considering how full that team got at one point. Amazing Man Animal Man Aquaman Atom August General in Iron Aztek Batman (Bruce Wayne) Batman (Dick Grayson) Big Barda Black Canary Black Lightning Bloodwynd Blue Beetle (Jamie Reyes) Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) Blue Devil Blue Jay Booster Gold Bulleteer Captain Atom Captain Marvel Congorilla Crimson Fox Cyborg Doctor Fate Donna Troy Doctor Light Elongated Man Etrigan Faith Fire Firestorm (Jason Rusch) Firestorm (Ronnie Raymond) The Flash (Barry Allen) The Flash (Wally West) General Glory Geo-Force Godiva Green Arrow (Connor Hawke) Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) Green Lantern (Guy Gardner) Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) Green Lantern (John Stewart) Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) Guardian Gypsy Hawkgirl (Kendra Sunders) Hawkgirl (Shayera Hol) Hawkman Hourman Huntress Ice Jade Jesse Quick Lightray L-Ron Major Disaster Manitou Raven Maxima Martian Manhunter Maya Metamorpho Mister Miracle Mon-El Nuklon Obsidian Oracle Orion Phantom Stranger Plastic Man Power Girl The Ray Red Arrow Red Tornado Rocket Red Silver Sorceress Snapper Carr Starfire Starman Steel (Henry Heywood III) Steel (John Henry Irons) Supergirl Superman Tasmanian Devil Tomorrow Woman Triumph Vibe Vixen Wonder Woman Zatanna Zauriel So, okay, just say if you're interested, your thoughts on thei dea of trading picks, etc. Also, a link to a Google Docs spreadsheet, tracking who chose who.
