The first time Rock tries one of these and his first pic goes against the rules.
haha, yeah, but he recovered nicely with Space Dandy!
That's not a bat. This...is a bat.

Went with a boy band formula i found on TV TROPES for this one. Was gonna start a new thread, but opted to bump this one as its such a similar premise:



MORGAN EDGE-The Unscrupulous Manager: Is a manipulative, controlling mentor that exploits their client(s) for their own gain.


ALPHA-The Heartthrob: The unofficial Face of the Band, and the one who was put there to draw the Squee! of millions of adoring teenage girls.


GRAVITY-The Shy One: Nerdier than the rest of the band, usually The Quiet One. He's cast because Nerds Are Sexy.


SPEEDBALL-The Cute One: A second heartthrob. Less sexually threatening than the Sweet One, and often meant as a foil to the Bad Boy.


KARMA-The Bad Boy: The one with a rougher edge to him. He's the one wearing the black shirt and jeans or leather jacket in those videos where they're not all wearing matching clothes.


CM3-The Older Brother: A cool, reassuring figure that the girls can relate to.

------------------
Morgan Edge creates/funds/publicizes the team to compete with ones like The Teen Titans/The Champions, fill the void left by teams like The Young Avengers/Young Justice.
His plan is all in the timing, as he'll make a mint as the team gets more and more famous, then set them up to die heroically and very publicly, saving Metropilis, after which he'll make even more in commemorative memorabilia sales.

As for the archetypes, Alpha has the hair, the smile, the outgoing nature to easily be the heartthrob.
Gravity's small town roots mean he'll be the most unused to so much attention.
Speedball has eveything going for him Alpha does; the hair the smile the attitude. As the youngest member he just needs a couple years to achieve full heartthrob status.
Karma rubs everyone wrong, but likes picking on the Speedball most as he's the youngest. When they go at it, its a guy who bounces off of and into things against a guy who cant be hit. The only thing that results is property damage.
CM3 is the most experienced, and helps keep the team focused, breaks up fights between Speedball and Karma. The wisdom of Solomon means he'llbe the one to realize Morgan Edge is up to no good.
That's not a bat. This...is a bat.
