Build Your Ultimate Superhero Team Quiz   12 comments

From Connie-Lynne’s LiveJournal:

The Challenge: Assemble a superteam from your favorite books, films, TV shows, etc.

Your team must consist of the following:

(1) Team Leader
(1) Warrior
(1) Smartypants
(1) Hottie
(1) Comic Relief

All your superteam members must be from DIFFERENT sources.


I edited this post, after a night’s sleep. Originally I had two teams, but I forgot one of the fundamental principles of hero teams is that the challenges posed to the team will only tax the team’s resources and abilities, so the really important factor is, “What team would *you* like to see in action against appropriate foes?”. Plus, I read Corey’s post, and he’s 100% correct, Nick Charles is a must-have member.

Revised Team

Team Leader: Jim Phelps, Mission Impossible
Warrior: Lee, Enter The Dragon
Smartypants: Nick Charles, The Thin Man Movies
Hottie: Emma Peel, The Avengers
Comic Relief: Simon Dermott, How to Steal a Million

I’ll give credit to Corey, for awakening my brain, and also credit to both children, who actually slept through the night last night, resulting in my first night in three weeks when I not only got more than 6 hours of sleep (8+!), but there was actually a 6 hour BLOCK of uninterrupted rest.

Why this team? Jim Phelps orchestrated some of the biggest cons in TV history. Jim’s a calculating planner, has excellent attention to detail, and doesn’t micromanage his IMF teams. He picks the experts and lets them do their thing. Lee, well… you never know when the villain you topple has an army of say 200 black-clad martial artists. Everyone on this team (with the exception of Simon) has demonstrated an ability to handle themselves against bad guys, but Lee could look at an onrushing horde and say, “You go ahead, I’ll delay them here” to the rest of the team (of course, Ms. Peel would would join him, and probably bail him out at least once). Nick is the classical wiseacre, a brilliant detective, handy with a pistol or his fists, and able to think on his feet, so he’d be invaluable if the Orchestrated Plan didn’t work. Ms. Peel is smart, a vicious fighter, tenacious, and an excellent detective in her own right – also a good head under chaos. Finally, Simon is a forensic chemist specializing in art forgery, able to come up with improvised plans on a shoestring budget, and he fits the classic role of comic relief as his response to danger is to crack a joke.

  2. Working on this too. I want it to be a female team with a male hottie, but the comic relief part is proving difficult.

  3. OK…Here goes.

    Leader: John “Hannibal” Smith
    Warrior: River Tam
    Smartypants: Dr. Bruce Banner/Hulk
    Hottie: Gina Carano (I can’t hyperlink)
    Comic Relief: Greg “Pasty” Johnson

    Ok, any child of the 80’s KNOWS that Hannibal can plan anything and that his plans often “come together”. Regardless of the circumstance, Hannibal is never short on ideas. And beside…George Peppard!

    River from Serenity/Firefly is a slayer of truly epic proportions, empty hand, with a blade, or any number of firearms. She kicks ass. Need I remind the reader that she single handedly stomped a bajillion Reavers? Oh, and she can kill you with her brain. (Possible substitute Hottie)

    Dr. Bruce Banner, emminant physicist and genetic biologist. All-round smart guy. Has the added bonus of also being arguably the powerful BRICK ever. Able to suck up, um, just about anything, and hold entire mountain ranges on his back. C’mon, that is just handy.

    Gina Carano may not be a “world-class” Hottie, but she would definitely do in a pinch. Plus the girl can really fight. She is powerful and would not fold under physical strain. Plus if seduction fails, she just hits you with a snap elbow-roundkick combo and takes your wallet.

    And finally, Greg Johnson. Let us remember Pasty in all his pasty glory. If Greg Johnson couldn’t make you laugh… at him..or yourself…or…just about anything. You are not worth saving.

  10. Leader: Captain America

  11. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
