Okay you're an assistant editor at the comic book publisher of your choice. You're boss comes in and tells you to drum up some roster ideas for a team-book they'd like to set-up for a future creative team to write. He asks for a proposal including: The roster of the team, The driving idea, explainations for character choices, and the creative team you'd like to see.

THE RULES------------------------

1) The winner of the last round becomes the moderator of the round, and thus gets to choose the team in question to be built. He must also name the roster to be filled, which should be at least 4, but no more than 9.

2) You may not use more than 4 characters common in anyone else's team in the round, as in if team one has characters a,b,c,d,e, team two can have characters a,b,c,d in common, but cannot use character e. The team posted first takes priority.

3) You must write a brief two or three sentence plot summary, an explanation for each team member, and the creative team you'd like to see on the book.

4) After TEN DAYS, the round is declared closed. People will vote via PM and send it to the moderator, who will count the votes and declare winner. Like the Ultimatization Game, you CANNOT vote for yourself.

5) The winner declared gets to choose the team in the next round.

This Round:


The Seven Soldiers of Victory.

Seven new soldiers answer the call to fight... whatever. You figure it out.

Round ends on the 19th. Hopefully we'll get some more participants this time.
I.... huh.....

This should be interesting. As far as I can tell, there's never been a solid mission statement for the team. OTOH, the "Seven Soldiers" can be used to make a new twist on the typical Magnificent Seven of the Justice League. This should be interesting.

That sounds like it could work. I'm thinking I've found something that works as my best pitch so far.
The Seven Soldiers of Salvation

There is something wrong with the universe. In the age of King Arthur, the wizard Merlin bound the beast rhymer Etrigan to the soul of Jason Blood, keeping the monster from his eventual uprising on Earth. For centuries this was kept in check, until Blood's hold finally was let go and the demon was let loose. The wizard now has found that the world is in grave danger, and only men crazy enough to have something catastrophic on the line would be willing to take down the Demon himself.

The Soldiers:
John Constantine

What he wants: Not one to care about groups or teams, Constantine is faced with the inevitable position of having to lead one. The wizard tells Constantine that he can't trick his way out of this one, his immortal soul now on the line again that the demons of Hell have come to an accord regarding his soul, thanks to the wizard's dealings. Now Constantine is faced with the challenge of working for a being who's an even better schemer than him.


What he wants: Michael Washington Lane is a disturbed individual. Having seen wars, the death of his family and years of torture as the Ghost Batman he seeks redemption. Lane might be acting as Azrael for the side of good, but he lacks that peace of mind that has eluded him for the past decade. Being approached by the wizard, Michael is offered peace of mind, and the chance to rest easy.

Black Alice

What she wants: Growing angrier and angrier with her life as it keeps going down the crapper; Lori Zechlin contemplates ending it all. Wanting nothing to do with her powers, Lori is approached by the wizard. Offered the chance to be rid of her abilities forever, Lori jumps at the chance, and is promised that once she uses her vast mystical ability to rid the world of Etrigan, she will be free from magic forever.

Crimson Avenger

What she wants: Cursed to be a spirit of vengeance after killing a guilty man, Jill Carlyle finds that she has become a tool of something evil. Growing sick of being an avatar of death, Jill takes the wizard's offer to become a weapon for good if she takes one final act revenge on Etrigan for the thousands that he has killed.


What he wants: Felix Faust cursed his son to damnation when he bartered his immortal soul to Nebiros in exchange for great power. Sebastian received this power and now tries to act as a power for good in exchange for his soul back. Not being offered salvation, Sebastian is given an offer to face Nebiros himself one-on-one after he has slain Etrigan; in thought an act that seems not as daunting after facing Etrigan.

Solomon Grundy

What he wants: Solomon Grundy wants only one thing in life: to live. Having tried to achieve immortality through evil against the Justice League, Solomon is faced with life through good deeds. Promised eternal life on Earth by the wizard, Solomon agrees to fight on the side of angels, a role he needs to get used to.


What she wants: The former antagonist to Nightwing, Catalina Flores recently came back from the dead after an adventure with the Secret Six. Being sought out for her unique skills and connection to Neron, Catalina barters with the wizard for one thing, the heart of Nightwing. Wanting true love, the wizard promises her that she will have Nightwing's heart in exchange for Etrigan's.

The Wizard:
The Phantom Stranger

Revealed to be the mythical wizard after the Seven Soldiers bring Etrigan down, the Phantom Stranger shows that he has brought the Soldiers together for something far more reaching than the taking down of Etrigan, in fact they are brought together to bring down all of the mystical beings on Earth that threaten the well being of the people; their next target, the Dark Lord Mordru.

Creative Team: Len Wein and JH Williams III. A great writer who created Swamp Thing and extensively worked with Alan Moore Wein shows an understanding of the mystical characters. Williams is gold, and I'd love to see him handle these characters.

I am tempted to do a Seven Soldiers with 3000% more Booster Gold.

But no, instead I'm going to do a SEVEN SOLDIERS IN SPACE!

Then I'm taking it. It's too good an idea to pass up.

Here's my cast.

Booster Gold
Cowboy Booster Gold
Pirate Booster Gold
31st Century Booster Gold
Vampire Booster Gold
1920's Gangster Booster Gold
Samurai Booster Gold

It's gonna be tight, y'all!
I have an idea for a team following on from Morrison's stories. I think the new team is sent through time to stop Klarion and results in the return of Frankenstein to the modern day (and how he's back to normal in Final Crisis).
I completely forgot, hrmm, on the fly then, here we go.

Adam Strange
Doc Savage
Mister Miracle
And random White Martian who doesn't know she's a White Martian

Seven soldiers need to assemble to save the universe from utter destruction, or from indigestion, we are a tad hazy on that part. But it starts with a lost puppy, and well, ends with a lost puppy.

First off, the story starts on Earth, where a Zeta Beam transportation goes awry, and Adam Strange finds out he ends up on Rann with a puppy. This certain puppy has no ID, so he's stuck with it until he can get it back to Earth. And why can't he right away?

Cause Lobo just wreck the transporter cause the guy didn't bring any beer.

Then Arissa shows up, trying to arrest Lobo for crimes on another planet. Strange simply tries to keep them from destroying each other.

Meanwhile, on Earth.

The ever young Doc Savage is researching some old death cult thing, somewhere where he is getting attacked. Somehow, he ends up teamed with Mister Miracle and Secret. They activate a random transport, retrieving Arissa, Lobo, Adam Strange, and the puppy. They all team to fight the death cult god, and the dog turns out to be a white Martian, but still doesn't think it is, instead it goes off with Lobo.

The end.

See, rush job, deal with it.
You should have reminded us about the voting you schmuck. Well I would've voted for Bluebeast anyway, his cast made me plotz!

Sweet! And it makes no difference to me that my last wins in these type of games have come by default. New round up soon.
