Everybody always talks about superhero team chemistry…possibly except Brian Cronin…but, have we ever tried a superhero team without chemistry?
Maybe it would be good!
When I was fourteen. I made up a Marvel superteam, not just of people who didn’t understand each other, but of people who hated each other. Post-Defenders, pre-Suicide Squad, my team was:
Captain Britain (circa first appearance of Arcade)
Spider-Woman (pre-Claremont version)
I called them — in those long-ago days — the Task Force. And I imagined that they would be able to get together once — and once only — before they hated each other so much that they would NEVER be able to get together again. Not even if the fate of the planet was at stake. They’d actually rather die, and see everyone they love die, than sit in the same room together again.
Maybe I exaggerated, though, Maybe this wasn’t the perfect “Task Force”. So what heroes, Marvel or DC, would make up your “Task Force”? Who absolutely would NOT get together again; whose “spirit of teamwork” would be pure hate?
But who, for the one-and-only time they were together, would kick very serious ass?
I think mine’s pretty good. Is yours better?
I put it to you; also I’ve given you the rules which will make it possible for you to WIN THIS GAME. And if I get answers which are unbelievably excellent…
I may award a prize.
I put it to you. WORST superteam.
