Come up w. your own Forgotten Heroes team
« on: August 11, 2018, 08:19:33 AM »


An odd mash up of DC heroes that had no reason to be together other than that they sucked so bad they were forgotten by fans.
So, come up w. your own strange quirky train wreck of a team.
5-7 Characters the average person will look at and go ‘WTF? Never heard of him’.

Now, it’ll be hard to stump each other, since we’re nerds, so +1000 points if you can get anyone to admit they dont remember a character, or a show, or a book etc.

Open to all genres, because TV  and movies definitely have had their share of forgettable super characters.

WONDER WOMAN

Everyone remembers the Lynda Carter TV show, and knows the Gadot movie. The original Cathy Lee Crosby version? Not so much. I watched it as a wee lad.
An Amazon in a track suit? She’s my team leader.

THE MAN FROM ATLANTIS

Aquaman who? This yellow speedo wearing sea guy had his own show and comic way back in the day. I never bought the book, but watched the show.

GABRIEL THE DEVIL HUNTER

The original Preacher. I never heard of him as a kid; i ran across the character last year surfing different sites. Honestly seems retarded, but, a militant clergyman fits right in with a team built on being forgettable.

THE VIKING COMMANDO

Only ever saw this character in DC’s WHO’S WHO book. A time displaced Viking warrior who called the Nazis Huns and got on the cover of Time magazine, i gotta have on my team.

NFL SUPER PRO

Because star athletes who make millions, score endorsement deals, bang supermodels and have issues w. the national anthem need protecting. This guy was a regular Iron Man(ning), or (grid)Iron Man if you will. 

CHUCK NORRIS

Long before he was a meme, he was a really crappy comic. Even i never bought this, and i bought just about everything back in the day.

THE HUMAN FLY

I dont know WHY i remember this character, as his stories were so vanilla i cant recall a single detail. He was a stuntman supposedly based on a real person.

Whelp, thats my team. Did i stump anyone?

I remember the Chuck Norris cartoon/toy line.  I even had his action figure.

I used to always crack on NFL Superpro and yes, have an issue buried somewhere.

Everythign else is new to me.  Viking Commando sounds badass and I'm wondering why it was never brought back.

let's see....5-7


1: Matthew Blackheart, MONSTER SMASHER: field leader, all around badass https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJ5pHGiL5mw

2: Automan, the world's first AUTOMATIC MAN: tech support and transport   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWyl4k4LRRg

3: Dr. Anton Mordrid, SORCERER SUPR...er....umm...MASTER OF THE UNKNOWN!: magic, obviously https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42xdx4MZALQ

4: The One Armed Boxer, Master of kung fu, charn kuen do, and 50 other kinds of WHIPPING YO' ASS: martial artist   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7CvtVl-zCk

5: Harry Crumb, two fisted detective and master of disguise. It was a close one between he and V.I. Warshawski, but I had to go with Harry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM6-VeQ_KPk

6: Thief Catcher....yeah she does kung fu too...BUUUT she'd rather use her guns and collect her bounty. Taking a leave of absence after the end of The Executioners. Plus, every team needs at least one smartass badass hot chick on a motorcycle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KBZaya2JCk   (she's the one on the motorcycle....or occasionally...the barrel)

7: The Enforcer. One of Hercules' toughest opponents, this amazonian beast made of water in the end was redeemed and got to go to the Elysian Fields.....brought back to earth by Dr. Mordrid to act as the team's powerhouse. Inspired by Hercules to be a hero.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2waW4EDU80  please excuse the audio. the only real clips of her I could find were dubbed in Necro.

Viking Commando could totally work in a series. Just make it so that he hasnt aged, and been fighting in wars all over the world for the last 70 years.
Its neat you got to see some new characters. 

HJ made a reference to the Heroic Trio! YYYAAAAAYYY!!!
^^^lol!

Other than Automan & Harry Crumb, all of HJ’s team was new to me!

I knew all if beatboks’ guys, but that still a kick ass team he put together.

Some really off the wall characters from everyone; this was really fun to read!

I'm kind of disappointed I couldn't think of a more obscure female brick than the Enforcer honestly.

Slayven would be so disappointed in me.

Man, remember Slayven?

^^^ouch!

I wanted to try a live action one like you guys, before i posted another comics one. Here goes...

“HURRICANE” SPENCER

Ex Navy Seal Hulk Hogan. The show was Thunder in Paradise. Was it any good? No idea, i never watched it.

HARRY DRESDEN

Popular character, didnt translate into a popular series unfortunately.

THE MIDDLE MAN & WENDY WATSON

There’s a few characters on this team who probably -think- they're the leader, but in the end i think everyone defers to Watson, the token female and level-est head.
This show was cancelled way too soon.

ERIC CORD

He was like the Hulk, but he was a werewolf! His show was called...Werewolf. I remember watching a couple of eps of this show.

JESSE

An alien soldier exiled to earth w. a mechanical floating eyeball to keep tabs on him. I honestly never heard of this show (Hard Time on Planet Earth) till this build. I assume there was no leg sweeping.

JOHN FINNEGAN

He’ll be the first to tell you he’s killed every monster he's ever fought.
Deep Rising was a highly underrated movie.

Anyone remember these?
