I'm pretty sure someone has done this but I wanted create my own list and this is the first thing that came to mind. He might not be the most popular or even the smartest person on the team but when there's a crisis everyone looks to him and says "what do we do or what's the plan?" They get respect from what they have done and what they still do. Love or hate them every good team needs them. This list is a work in progress and not in any particular order. If you have any ideas or questions let me know. (Keep in mind I made this list minus "The New 52" status of certain DC characters.
