Hi fellow geeks! I have this idea to make a different kind of VS thread, the one that puts more emphasis on our own "dream team" rather than the actual winners of the battles itself. I believe it should be fun to see what we can come up with. Unlike Avengers (Marvel) or Justice League (DC), you can mix-and-match any characters from anywhere in here.
The idea is to build your own "ultimate team" of heroes and villains of any characters; historical / real life or fictional, from any properties (comic books, movies, video games, anime, etc). Any anti-hero characters can be put into either "hero" or "villain" teams.
Your ultimate dream team have to be based on this team structure:
The leader of your team, can be anyone from Abraham Lincoln to Captain America. You must also appoint another team member to be your second-in-command.
The brains of the team, the one with genius intellect in any particular field; from battle strategies to technical and weapons expert, or even the medical doctor of the team. Example: Sun Tzu, Sherlock Holmes, Donatello, Dr. House
The martial arts expert or a tough hand-to-hand / melee fighter. Example: Bruce Lee, Kenshin, Leonardo
The strongest member with the most devastating raw power, physical or otherwise. Example: Hulk, Superman, He-Man.
I suspect most of the team battles will be decided with which side's bruiser is considered stronger, though hopefully not all the time.
Even though any team members can be either male or female, this one represents the gender minority of the team to keep it sexually diverse. If most of your team members are males, then you put a female in this slot. If most of your team members are females, then you put a male one here.
A character with robotic or machine-based characteristics. Example: RoboCop, Iron Man, a Transformer or Terminator.
From Godzilla, King Kong, Mickey Mouse, Donkey Kong or Pokemon.
It's not uncommon for a hero and a villain to work together to take down a bigger threat. This one is the bad boy / bad girl of the team, one that hopefully adds a badass / funny / interesting dynamic with the other team members. Example: The Joker, Dr. Doom, etc.
In the "Villains" team, this one is changed into a hero.
A vehicle that can be used / operated by at least one member your team. Vehicle examples: Doc Brown's DeLorean, M.A.S.K. vehicles, Batmobile, Tron Lightcycle, X-Wing, Turtle Wagon, etc.
Any vehicle that takes more than the whole team members to pilot / operate it (Death Star, Helicarrier, Starship Enterprise) can't be a team vehicle.
No Transformer character is allowed as "the vehicle".
Any two of the above team members have to partnered with one another to create an interesting dynamic duo.
You create both hero and villain teams, and the next poster will answer which of the team they think is going to win, and why - before creating their own teams as well.
It's better, though not necessary, to add a line or two about each of the characters you used since not all characters will be familiar to everyone in the forum.
You can put small or medium-sized pictures for the characters, but no big pictures please.
You can also take a picture of your own action figures grouped together to represent how the team looks together, if you happen to have them all in your collection.
Anyone can submit more that once to throw out more than one team ideas, but someone else have to reply to your scenario first before you can submit another one. So you can't submit 2 posts in a row.
To start, here's mine:
THE HERO TEAM
The Leader: Optimus Prime [Transformers: Dark of The Moon]
A wise and charismatic, powerful military leader, but an extremely brutal warrior in the battlefield. Equipped with dual energon swords, energon axe, and a jet pack trailer to fly.
The Genius: Batman [Modern DC Comics' Books]
The world's greatest detective. And he is Batman. The second-in-command of the team.
The Fighter: Snake-Eyes [G.I. Joe]
The mute ninja commando. Master of both modern military and Arashikage ninja clan disciplines.
The Bruiser: Son Goku [Dragon Ball Z]
A Saiyan warrior who can destroy planets with his energy.
The Girl: Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) [Modern DC Comics' Books]
Has the same powers as Superman, she might be a bit weaker than Superman but is still super strong and fight with less restraint.
The Robot: Doraemon
The futuristic cat robot from the 22nd Century. Have a collection of absurd high-tech gadgets that can manipulate time, reality, and almost anything else.
The Animal: T-Rex [Jurassic Park]
She might be represented as an antagonist in Jurassic Park, but she's essentially an animal, therefore can't be considered "evil". Moreover, she actually saved the heroes from the final velociraptors attack, making her the hero of the movie's climax.
The Villain: Darth Maul [Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace]
Dual lightsaber, dark side of the force and fast martial arts skills. Partnered together with Snake-Eyes for a silent-but-deadly, double Ray Park combo!
The Vehicle: K.I.T.T. [Knight Rider - 1982 TV Series]
A sentient, talking super car. Driven by Batman.
THE VILLAIN TEAM
The Leader: Sosuke Aizen [Bleach]
An expert manipulator, genius intellect, charismatic leader, very high level fighter, spell caster and absolute hypnotist.
The Genius: Light Yagami [Death Note]
A manipulative, highly intelligent young man. He might start as the protagonist in Death Note, but in the end of the series he ends up as a corrupted character, therefore he's in the villain's team. Partnered together with Aizen as expert manipulators, so they can say "Just as planned!" together again and again. Second-in-command of the team.
The Fighter: Darth Vader [Star Wars]
Lightsaber and force chokes!
The Bruiser: Doomsday
Superman's murderer. An extremely strong alien monster with adaptive abilities.
The Girl: Alien Queen [Aliens]
A big, mean Alien bitch.
The Robot: T-1000 [Terminator 2: Judgement Day]
The liquid metal Terminator from the future who can change shape into anything.
The Animal: Ravage [Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen]
Soundwave's mean kitty cat pet. Expert in infiltration.
The Hero: Green Ranger [Mighty Morphin Power Rangers]
Tommy Oliver, arguably the best Power Ranger ever. He might be introduced as the bad ranger in the series, but since he eventually joined the heroes, he can be the "hero" in this villain team. Let's say he's brainwashed... Again.
The Vehicle: Dragonzord [Mighty Morphin Power Rangers]
Controlled by the Green Ranger with his flute, or personally piloted by him in its' cockpit.
The next poster after me will say:
Winner: Hero or Villain Team, and the reasons why.
And then they can make their own teams, and so on. Let's play!
