AVENGERS TEAM MIRRORING JLA

#1 Posted by doctor_bong_crosby (98 posts) - - Show Bio

How would you like an Avengers team which would mirror Grant Morrison´s "Big Seven" JLA team...?

Hyperion instead of Superman. The Black Panther instead of Batman. Hyppolita instead of Wonder Woman, the Vision instead of Martian Manhunter, the Sub-Mariner instead of Aquaman, Makkari instead of the Flash and Quasar instead of Green Lantern.

I personally would not like it. Marvel's style is more like"different shapes and sizes". You have large characters like Hulk and Thing and you don't see bulky characters in the Justice League.

This is pretty much the way I see it too. I think I would replace Makkari with Quicksilver though.

@spawn92:

Agreed with above instead I would put Brunilide instead of Hipolitya.

Why would you replace Makkari with someone slower?

Hyppolita seems a little too on the nose. How about Thena instead? Lets u compensate for Vision not being a telepath.

Hyperion basically is Superman, so that's a no-brainer..

Black Panther is the only character really close to Batman.

I would put Valkyrie in place of Wonder Woman.

Namor in place of his biggest fan, Aquaman..

Invisible Woman is probably the closest to a Green Lantern, power-wise, but if you wanted to play up the every-man space-cop angle, I think Smasher could fit.

Quicksilver is the obvious Flash analogue, I guess. Makkari is probably a better choice though.

The things about the Martian Man-hunter that really make him distinct among the 'League are that he's a telepathic alien shape-shifter. I don't know why people compare him to the Vision, who is none of those things and already has a Justice League analogue in Red Tornado (who sucks! he stinks on ice! I don't know why I hate Red Tornado as much as I do, and I hate to be so negative, but every time I see him in a comic it makes me want to throw it away)

.. anyway, my point is that I don't think that the Martian Man-hunter has a marvel analogue. Maybe a Super-Skrull? Mr.Sinister is a telepathic shape-shifter, I guess. Or Monet from X-factor? She's super-tough/strong, can fly, and is telepathic (which in itself can do half of what shape-shifting can do).. In general, I think a Super Skrull would probably be the closest fit, though..

I don't mind reading that, though I'd replace Makkari with Quicksilver, Quasar with Nova, and Hippolyta with Ms. Marvel.

So:

Superman (Hyperion)

Batman (Black Panther)

Wonder Woman (Ms. Marvel)

The Flash (Quicksilver)

Green Lantern (Nova)

Aquaman (Namor)

Martian Manhunter (Vision)

And maybe just throw in Cap because why not ;)

Because that leaves room for flaws.

When i see someone who can literally steal speed from someone, being hit by one of his rouges, EVER I question how that can happen. (in flash' case)

Quicksilver is reasonably fast

For me I'm trying to think of analogues that aren't just about power but also incorporate personality to a reasonable extent.

Hyperion/Superman = The newest version of Hyperion really fits the mould as a 'better than thou' Superhero and it's handy that his powerset is a near replica as well.

Moon Knight/Batman = Wealthy normals that try to make the world a better place but equally have this obsession with vengeance.

Valkryie/Wonder Woman = Warrior Women from mythological cultures that slowly learn the ways of man?

Quasar/Green Lantern = Both empowered as protectors of the universe and both deal with constructs. Both have a sense of nobility too I guess.

Makkari/The Flash = Much more of the every man hero than Quicksilver and also significant faster with a penchant for Red, I think Makkari is a more appropriate analogue.

Namor/Aquaman = Could it really be anyone else?

Crusader/Martian Manhunter - Alien Shapeshifter who develops a great affinity for the planet Earth. Sure he's not a Telepath, but he fits the other areas spot on.

______________________________-

Just for fun, here are some more analogues

Captain Britain/Captain Marvel (Shazam)
Ms. Marvel/Power Girl
Hawkeye/Green Arrow
Jessica Jones/Black Canary
Scarlet Witch/Zatanna
Hank Pym/Ray Palmer
Meggan/Vixen
Vision/Red Tornado
Captain America/Captain Atom (Pre-N52)
Ghost Rider/Zauriel
Blue Marvel/Black Lightning

I just remembered that morph is a latent telepath and a shapeshifter he'd be a perfect MMH

i like that it's not a direct rip off.....

Captain Marvel(Carol Danvers) fills in superman's role almost perfectly.(or more than fills in for GL) or Blue Marvel for the same position

Thor more than makes up for Wonder Woman(since neither Hippolyta or Valkyrie could or sif)

I like the idea of Namor :P or maybe Namorita

but Vision could not fill john's shoes, toss in doctor strange :P
