Body: Baxter Stockman - for that nebbish appeal and rat-minded intellect.

Item I: Uncle Scrooge's money bin - that's just good exercise, really.

Item II: Tomorrow's headlines - destined to become a hero with just a little push, Gary Hobson never did get his morning paper on Earth 616. An unseen hand has seen fit to misplace it every single morning. Not that it matters, really - it would take a true adept to gleam useful information from MSM news.

Bernie Bernstein doesn't so much fight the JLA as run them somewhat clumsily from the shadows. When in doubt, he'll often try to either change the subject or bribe whomever is in front of him, saying things like "boy, these pretzels are making me thirsty. Have some pretzles, Batman. I don't want them anymore." J'onn J'onnz in particular is known to grudgingly accept his blood bagels. Batman's never really picked up on the subtext.

I'm assuming pretzels are low-key enough to sneak under the table here. We can just switch those in for the money bin, if necessary.

...Didn't Alan Scott once accidentally remove every single person on the planet by wishing to get rid of evil, or something along those lines?

Flash is a good pick. I know he had problems with fatigue pre-Nu. Does he still have issues like that? I mean, it showed him being exhausted after huge feats like evacuating entire towns and shit which are obviously incredibly huge undertakings, but so is killing the entire world.

Or he could just take random pitstops somewhere on the other side of the planet.

I'd say his biggest problem should be the sheer drudgery of searching the entire world for human life, but even then, he's probably performed similar feats in the past.

Swamp Thing
B'wana Beast?
Possibly Sublime or Elixir.
Obviously a whole bunch of telepaths.
The Modular Man

Probably the Tooth Fairy.

Am I the only person who found this show really underwhelming?

I'm still not sure I even like the first season. I circled back to it after skipping to the second expecting to appreciate it more, but mostly it still felt very hit-and-miss. These days it's easily one of my favourite things on television, but I really doubt I'd have given it as many chances as I did if I didn't love Dan Harmon elsewhere.

Manchester Black
Handsome Jack

A psychotic, self-proclaimed hero/dictator who thinks he's the cleverest guy in the world. Space Strider understands what it takes to bring peace to troubled regions, and has a deeply disturbing relationship with his one remaining relative, a woman he'd essentially crippled and hooked-up to machines years ago.
Will eventually return to haunt his enemies' and/or loved ones' psyche as a pseudo-ghost.


Where Menagerie has a symbiotic connection with a host of alien creatures living in her body, Bayonetta uses her body to summon monstrous familiars. Also like Menagerie, she's functionally interchangeable with her bff, although for some reason she'll still get really upset if you killed her.
Dispenses violent justice through an implausible number of guns.

Gnarled Winslow

(That's right, Image has more than one book about punching bears in the face.)
Like everyone else, I had Spawn in mind for this spot earlier (obviously I pay very close attention to this website these days). Now that he's taken though, let's just go with this guy -- a former New York beat cop who'd lost his arms battling Owl-Kaida before joining NASA'S glorified goon squad. He'll fit in well with the general sensibilities of this team, and unlike Spawn, I've actually seen his book once.

The Hat

Formerly an evil wizard overlord from an alternate dimension, the Devil's Devil had a sudden change of heart when his old boss sent him over to destroy the planet. He liked it here, you see. So he turned his pitiable rat familiar into a more fashionable koala, got a haircut and a motorcycle, and declared he's here to help.

All he really wants is to be left alone/save the planet/murder his enemies//turn a new leaf/get his old girlfriend back -- he's not really sure what he wants right now, truth be told, but he knows he'd like people to look up to him for a change, and that ideally he should probably be compensated for it.

Vera Black = Vash the Stampede, obviously. Hell, that's practically a statement of fact.

Yeah, no. That was nowhere in your first draft (or at least I didn't see it, which amounts to the same thing).

Hugo Strange goes to a slightly questionable seminar for the weekend and comes back inspired by the lofty ideals laid out in The Four Agreements. Naturally, he picks four Arkham inmates to help through therapy, hopefully corroborating his theories in the process.

...I don't know, maybe I'll finish this thought tomorrow. It made slightly more sense than Dr. Doom having his way with the Fantastic and/or Frightful Four while I typed.
Presume hijinks ensue.

I genuinely don't see the argument for Black Alice, though. Other than one win over the Spectre she technically can't repeat, she's vastly more powerful than just about anyone she's ever met.

At least Nemesis Kid's power-set is situational.

Squirrel Girl is kind of a bully, actually. She hits below her weight class.

Not since she'd gotten her own series. Now she's clearly less powerful than scrubs like Kraven or Galactus, but still far more formidable overall.

Although she was learning how to make squirrel constructs last I looked, so maybe that's all changed.
