Celebrity Superteam Builder
« on: January 05, 2018, 08:28:16 AM »
Something like a mash up of Marvel's X-Statix/DC's Conglomerate.
Your team is more interested in getting headlines, sound bytes, being click bait, landing sponsership deals etc. The more dysfunctional the better.
actually saving the day comes farther down the list.

5-8 members, at least 1 female.
No Marvel/DC characters, but all media is open to use, mix and match or stick to one, your choice.

Going with a cartoon theme here, initially.
My team is as follows:

THE LEADER-Zapp Brannigan (Futurama)
If by leader you mean putting anyone but himself in mortal danger to accomplish the mission.
Luckily the former 25 Star General's mostly just reaping the benefits here, being the face of the team, arranging interviews and fielding offers, while taking a percentage for his trouble.

THE BIG GUN-Major Man (The Powerpuff Girls)
He's got the powers, he'd just rather not take the risk.
After being disgraced in the City Townsville, he's looking to start over and rebrand himself as the team's resident superman. He is hoping to play himself in a movie.

THE BADASS-Da Samurai (Samurai Jack)
Not nearly as good as he says he is, he's still good enough to use his team affiliation to kickstart a nationwide chain of dojos, all with his name, right above the entrance.   

THE GOLDEN BOY-Lance (Voltron: Legendary Defender)
On a team full of good looking young guys Lance didnt stand out. On this team he IS the good looking young guy.
With his innate ability to pilot any vehicle/use any device Zapp or Mandark might come up with, Lance has no problem saving the day, looking good while doing it, and celebrating with the ladies afterwards.

THE HOT CHICK-Adrena Lynn (Kim Possible)
This faux action girl makes sure she's front and center at every team appearance, and does just enough to keep the money rolling in from her TV show, clothing line, and various endorsement deals.

THE COMEDY RELIEF-Bloo (Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends)
As a conceptual entity, Bloo is basically unkillable, which comes in handy. He can alter his size and shape, has access to hammer space...but what Bloo really wants, is his own toy line, and possibly a breakfast cereal.
He was hoping for a cartoon (Bloo's Clues), but was advised against it by the team's lawyers.
 
THE ROCK STAR-Marceline (Adventure Time)
She has that 'Teen Titans Raven joins a team to get away from her evil demonic dad' thing going. With vampire and magic powers she's a huge asset to the team. All Marceline wants is to help people and make music.   
On this team, the former is not easy, but she does her best to keep them honest.

THE BOY GENIUS-Mandark (Dexter's Laboratory)
While Dexter works in secret, Mandark decides to go hugely public.
He may never be the better scientist, but thanks to being on this team, he's going to be the most well known scientist.
Mandark spends his time filing patent after patent between frequent appearances and occasional missions.

THE LEADER-Alan Tracy (Thunderbirds Are A Go)
Having been a Thunderbird all his life, young Alan was considering going off on his own. No sooner had he thought of it than he was approached by the Megalithic Corp. and offered the chance to lead his own sponsored team. Provided the best in high tech equipment, Alan also serves as pilot, and the face of the team.

THE BIG GUN-Captain Hammer (Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog)
The super strong, completely invulnerable Captain was easy for the Megalithic Corp. to recruit.
Being on the team allows him to put his face on all kinds of merchandise, and make him a truckload of money.

THE BADASS(es)-The Crazy 88 (Kill Bill)
After being nearly wiped out while working for a Japanese crime lord, the surviving Crazy 88s were hired by the Megalithic Corp., and set to build their numbers back up from Japan's best muscle for hire. Brought to the US on work Visas they function as the team's shock troops, securing the battle ground, getting civilians to safety, and then kicking any asses that need it.

THE GOLDEN BOY-Gen.(Dr.) Carl Jenkins (Starship Troopers)
This time displaced warrior from a possible future is young, handsome and patriotic. He's adept at using BFGs, and has powerful telepathic powers.
Was the first recruited by the Megalithic Corp. to seek out potential members and read their minds, and make them the best offers.
He uses the recognition he gains from the team to hold speaking engagements where he discusses his time, and how the social Darwinist idea of society as a struggle for survival based on military strength has been embraced.

THE HOT CHICK-Power Princess (Zoom)
A graduate of the Zoom Academy, Cindy Collins is a tireless crusader for many worthy causes. The Megalithic Corp. provides her name recognition, funds, and a way to reach a wider audience.
A former pint sized powerhouse, she's now stronger than Captain Hammer, though not nearly as invulnerable. They have a friendly rivalry, and she's the one woman the handsome lech treats with respect. 

THE COMEDY RELIEF-Paul (Paul)
During his confinement by the government, Paul's likeness was hugely popularized, being on the team means the Megalithic Corp. is going to help him get a piece of all the money thats been made at his expense.
Self admittedly goofy, he can turn invisible, heal himself or others, and psychically download thoughts, actuallymaking him quite an asset.

THE ROCK STAR-Lucas Lee (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World)
Canada's biggest action star has abnormal strength, speed, durability and stamina as well as mad, almost supernatural skateboard skills.
Like any Canadian actor he wants to make it big in Hollywood, and the team offers him media exposure, and and credibility to rival even the late Alan Thicke.   

THE GIRL GENIUS-Athena (Tomorrowland)
An animatronic mecha-organism with a human personality, Athena is physically superior to humans, skilled in various combat techniques, can interface with most forms of technology and is a repository for much of Tomorrowland's forward reaching scientific knowledge.
Her involvement with the team is part of a deal struck between her creators and the Megalithic Corp., the details of which she doesnt have access to. She enjoys being on earth though, and finds her teammates endlessly interesting so she doesnt mind her situation.

---------------------------------

If this were ongoing fanfic some of the plot lines would include finding out what the Megalithic Corp.'s endgame is, whether Carl Jenkins is trying to make his possible future an actual future by using them, and what deal was struck with Tomorrowland, and how it figures into the scenario.

^^^Had to think about it, but that works!

hellboy did crave the spotlight in the second movie. Daffy always does! The Tick would probably drive Captain Amazing insane, in short order...!

Kept thinking about the cartoon themed one i did, found a few more characters that would fit.


THE VISITOR FROM ANOTHER PLANET-Zim (Invader Zim)
He brings off world tech and a host of odd abilities.
Totally NOT using the fame and acceptance to his presence provided by the team to pave the way for an invasion by his people.


THE MILLENNIAL-Kick Buttowski (Kick Buttowski)
Rushes headlong into every dangerous situation the team faces, and, his YouTube video hits are in the millions because of it!


THE URBAN LEGEND-Candlejack (Freakazoid!)
Ghost like powers of teleportation, intangibility, and showing up directly behind people make for an eerie team addition. His spookiness make Jack inexplicably popular with kids. They play with his toys and dress as him for Halloween. Jack goes from summer camp story heard by dozens to national celebrity.
On his off time, he's going to need more rope.

I totally crushed it with this one.
They are of course, together for...commercial success.


THE LEADER-Flo (Progressive Insurance commercials)
Like her, dont like her, you know her. She can ride motorcycles, sky dive, sail, knows karate, bungee jumps...she has her own action figure.
Truly, she is leadership material.   


THE BIG GUN-He is ADT (ADT Home Security commercials)
big and scary, he also never sleeps, and is impervious to heat and cold. He cant be reasoned with, or bargained with. He absolutely will not stop until you're safe.


THE BADASS-Mayhem (Allstate Insurance commercials)
Able to survive catastrophic injuries, he can alter probability to cause accidents both big and small. He really likes his job, too, enjoying the results.
 

THE GOLDEN BOY-'The Man' (Old Spice Body wash commercials)
Handsome. Well spoken. Calm & cool.
He can also warp his immediate reality to suit his needs, and access hammer space.


THE HOT CHICK-Athena (Game of War commercials)
Her looks turn heads, and her power to summon small armies of sword wielding armored warriors can get those heads cut off. 


THE COMEDY RELIEF-Sasquatch (Jack Link's Jerky commercials)
For as strong and fearsome as he is, Sasquatch somehow always has folks messing with him. The team really loves him, though, he's a straight up nice cryptid.


THE ROCKSTAR-Justin Timberlake (Pepsi, Bai commercials)
Boy band. Solo artist. SNL 5 Timers Club. Actor. Hot wife. There's nothing JT cant do entertainment wise. Going by his Pepsi commercial he brings Wiley Coyote level damage soak and durability to the team.


THE GENIUS-Wolfgang (Volkswagon GTI commercials)
A mind like a steel trap, this one.
A trap he'd use to crush you. Also known to drop crates and employ the occasional catapult and wrecking ball.
