On the latest episode of the Incomparable Podcast, a draft was held to build ultimate superhero teams. Not a single person drafted Superman OR Batman! I get that everyone is over Wolverine, but no caped crusader? Was the latest film that off-putting? My ultimate 7-person superhero team would be:
Superman – Every team needs a heavy and the last son of Krypton is the ultimate one.
Batman – Known as the World’s Greatest Detective, he’s also good with gadgets, rich, and has a ready-to-move-in hideout.
Professor X – He also has a great HQ, but it’s his near omnipotent telepathy that we’ll need to save the world.
Forge (X-Men) – I’ve always loved his ability to build really awesome guns to shoot at people. Plus, Cable is too moody.
Hulk – Smash. Hulk smash.
Spiderman – He may not be the most powerful, but he’s smart and will bring some levity to the morning status meetings.
Black Widow – My team needs some feminine charm and who better than a top-secret spy that looks like Scarlett Johanson? TEAM COMPLETE!
