My Round 2 Pick:

 

Team Name: The Copy-Cats

 

Super Skrull

 

Annihilation004_SKRULL_scaled_800.png

 

so by my figures:

 

 

  • 5 bonus points if the character has never starred in own solo ONGOING title or MINISERIES or TEAM title (always a villain and never part of a team or had his own book)
  • 3 bonus points if the character has never died (Debatable)
  • 3 points if you give your team a name
  • 3 bonus points if the pick is selected within 24 hours

So that should be 11-14 bonus points

 

Sending PM to Hermit, now.

Cool! I'm going to have to look up some music by these guys.

Their most well known song is I'll Be Gone, and my personal favourite is What The World Needs Is A New Pair Of Socks. Well known Murtceps songs are Esmeralda and We Are Indelible.

Round 2 – Who da Man?

Your character must have been created by Stan Lee.

2 point if the co-creator was not Kirby or Ditko

(Co Creator was Don Heck)


  • 3 bonus points if the pick is selected within 24 hours

Round 2 pick is Clint Barton aka Hawkeye!

He's a bit headstrong

And I go twice if I recall, due to being at one of the bookends of this

 

Round 3 – I Was Born This Way
These characters were born with their superhuman abilities. Aliens with superhuman abilities count. Artificial life-forms are not allowed—created is not the same as being born.
  • 1 point if the character had their powers from birth
2 bonus points if the character is otherwise human (mutant or meta)
 
(Well, half human, and Atlanteans were altered from human stock so yes?)
  • 3 bonus points if the pick is selected within 24 hours
Round 3 pick is Aquaman aka Arthur Curry aka "King over most of the ####ing planet!"

PM from Bluecloud returned to let him know of Round 3

And I think I may owe Lady Pariah an apology. Despite their hair color, the reasons I took Clint and Arthur were not their golden locks

Yep. Both were on my list. Those two sting a bit. Lucky for me, due to fan service, there are plenty of blondes to choose from.

I'm surprised you didn't pick a certain someone for the Stan Lee round that just ended. This character is very famous and is right in front of you but you couldn't see it. Bwahahaaa

I was seriously considering picking Stan Lee as a character created by Stan Lee :snicker: .

 

Nice to see Aquaman getting some love.  I enjoyed JL: Throne of Atlantis and thought they handled the character pretty well.

I can't think of who you mean but I suppose you'll tell me after you choose them? I had someone in mind when Pariah first starting telling me about this draft but for the life of me I couldn't remember who it was. Thanks for taunting me! :-P

Good grief, it's not Stripperella, is it?  :ugly:

No worries, and didn't mean to taunt you but gave you a riddle wrapped in a joke. And no more hints. ;)

 

Will I tell you who the character is? Yes, no, maybe, who knows, we might be able to come to some arrangement... :whistle::angel:

 

 

(and due to respect for my other players won't out the character publically but will confirm is someone guesses correctly)

Round 3 Pick: Rogue (X-Men)

 

5f6835db85faea289a3df92ef39fcd67.jpg

 

3 bonus points if the character has never died (I think)
1 bonus point if the character chosen is female
    2 bonus points if the character is otherwise human (mutant or meta)
    1 point if the character's powers are dangerous to them or their environment

3 Point if picked within 24 hours

 

For 10 points, I think.

 

Sending a PM to Pariah after this.

I need to ponder for a bit.

I figured.

Hawkeye did well last season, just not for me, so I thought I'd see how it went.

And I've always been an Aquaman fan.

 

Since snipes were coming strong out of the gate I figured I'd go with some heroes I loved and enjoyed reading rather than maximum points etc. That'll cost me, but heck, I'm a Broncos fan... going from a winning season to falling on my face feels natural to me ;)

Okay, I think I have a replacement for Rogue.

 

Marvel Girl (Jean Grey)

 

grey-jean_2.jpg

 

(Incidentally, do you have any idea how hard it is to find a decent picture of her in this costume?!)

 

Points, as far as I can tell:

 

3 points for punctuality

1 point for lack of a Y-chromosome

2 points for otherwise human

1 point for dangerous powers (Professor X had to turn block her telepathy at a young age because the psychic backlash from a friend's death nearly killed her as well)

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  As specified in the Excluded Characters bit, this is Jean without the Phoenix Force. Of course, she's still an Omega-level mutant without the Phoenix Force, so she can still hold her own.

 

Psybolt, back to you.

Funny, I was going to say that as a Broncos fan, coming up short in the Finals feels natural to me.
