First of all, this thread draws heavily from Lunacyde's Fellowship of the Rings thread. All due credit to Luna for the idea.

Mine has a bit of a twist, naturally. You shall choose 8 vine members to accompany you on the quest from Lord of the Rings (with you as the ringbearer).
 
The fun part? You can give them any street level powerset, skillset and equipment from any fictional medium. 
 i.e. If you choose Daredevil you would get DD's powers, fighting skills and regular equipment. Not a mix-and-match like some of my other threads.
 
Rules:
No one over 25 tons strength.
No one who can maintain superspeed for anything over a burst.  
No one with durability greater than Luke Cage.
No one with telepathy, telekinesis, magic, duplication or reality manipulation. 
To make it interesting you must have at least 1 Marvel, 1 DC, 1 Video Game and 1 Other character used.  
Characters that use ammo will never run out. (They still need to reload).  
Your teammates may not carry you and you must make the journey under your own steam.
You may not personally have powers that grant you flight or any other kind of fast-track solution to making the journey.
You will not feel the actual effect of the ring wearing you down, burdening you. 
Ring will not effect team members. (They won't try and take it from you.) 
For all intents and purposes elven bread and water will always be available. 
Any character from LOTR that was friendly to Frodo shall also be friendly to you. 
No character from LOTR may accompany you on your journey in any part.
Sauron's forces are infinite and will be reproduced constantly in Mordor and Isengard until the ring is destroyed.
 

Setting


You will start out in The Shire and you must reach Mount Doom. 
How you get there or how long it takes is entirely up to you. You may divide your team or stay together, all up to you.

@Final Arrow: You, yourself also get powers. That and your friend's equipment must be the standard equipment for that character, although you can use different versions like Udon Taskmaster vs Regular Taskmaster, etc.
 
@Fortanono: Doctor Light isn't within the rules since she can travel at lightspeed continuously.
