Sending unused or underutilized DC characters for Marvel to use better (in their own titles, main roles in team titles, etc.) and vice versa.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The Flash (Wally West) - Former New Warrior & New Avenger (not Illuminati New Avengers). Best friends with Kyle.

Adam Strange - Guardians of the Galaxy (written like the "Planet Heist" mini, a little like MacGyver in space)

Lady Blackhawk (Zinda Blake) - Invaders during WWII, the go-to pilot in books like Wolverine, Captain America, etc. Later on, a main character in Fearless Defenders.

Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) - Earth's only Green Lantern, former New Warrior & New Avenger. Wally's best friend.

The Question (Vic Sage) - Loner, conspiracy nut in the MU. Like Batman without the people skills and the money. The lone hero out of a very corrupt Chicago, but will help other heroes on occasion.

Supergirl (Linda Danvers) - Basically Marvel's version of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer meets Veronica Mars. While she fights several threats in her hometown of Leesburg, VA (with an increasing percentage of supernatural threats), she runs into very few superpowered allies. For a short time, she's an "Earth born angel". As she gets older, she runs into characters like Doctor Strange. She has several ties with the members of PAD's X-Factor. Does not wear a costume, just street clothes or specialized gear.

Hawkman ("Carter Hall") - Back to the "Conan with wings" take. Or like Ares. But with the reincarnation aspect in play. When he's killed, he's instantly reborn somewhere and grows up like a normal person, "inheriting" memories of his life on his 21st birthday. I'd take advantage of the history of the MU and show him fighting Apocalypse in Egypt, Sinister in colonial times, the Nazis in WWII, Atlantis at some point, etc. And he doesn't always win, but he has to live with the consequences of his failures. He's able to use what he learns in each lifetime and add it to his knowledge of how to cause destruction, making his mind his most deadly weapon (followed by his mace, flight and enhanced strength, of course). Most of the time, he wears shirts.

Image

Prime (Kevin Green) - He's how "Shazam" (ugh) should be. Think Ultimate Spider-Man set in the DCU with more of an original feel to it. At this point, he's still very young, so there's no team affiliations yet.

Really???

the way i'm doing mine, is like the "universe" is filling the void of the characters that were taken to the Marvel Universe, so its taking similar heroes from the Marvel Universe to go to the DC Universe.

The Syndicate

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Two-Face: great villain for DD and Punisher. So misused in the DCU.
Parasite: I've said this a thousand times, Parasite would be a great Hulk (and even Thor) villain.
Deadshot: I can see him being a good rogue for Hawkeye or Winter Soldier
Zoom (Hunter Zolomon): "Ironman, I want to make you a better hero"
Black Adam: Norse vs Egyptian. Thunder vs. lightning. Thor vs. Teth.
Circe: Foil for Wanda? Yep. Foil for Doc Strange? Yep. Foil for the Defenders, regular or Fearless? Yep.
Gorilla Grodd: the FF love looking for new civilizations, be it on earth or elsewhere. Gorilla kingdom would be perfect for the FF to explore, and Grodd bring a perfect foil for Reed.

The Secret Society

Image

The Ghost: a perfect foil for Batman and Bruce Wayne. Bats needs villains that arent psychotic, but someone after his secrets.

(one again I'm making a team that is a non-team. They work under the same banner (Syndicate and Secret Society) but on their own).

An unlikely group of heroes from several walks of life band together at the request of the Justice League, in order to handle the missions they can't. They are...

The All New Outsiders

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Cyclops - Orphaned at a young age, Scott Summers had trouble fitting in. In fact, after he discovered that he possessed the superhuman ability to emit a perpetual optic blast, fitting in became almost impossible. That was until Scott was taken in by Dr. Niles Caulder and the Doom Patrol. Despite stints on the Teen Titans, the Justice League, and the Justice Society, Scott always found his way back to the Doom Patrol until Dr. Caulder attempted to unleash a gene-bomb designed to mutate the Earth's population into freaks. Scott was forced to kill his mentor and friend, causing a permanent rift between himself and the Doom Patrol. Hoping to prevent Scott from going down an even darker path, Batman personally selected him to join and eventually lead the Outsiders. Cyclops was instrumental in minimizing damage prior to Infinite Crisis, when it was discovered that his optic blasts had a similar effect as a red sun allowing him to stop Superman while he was under the control of Maxwell Lord and even allowing him to weaken Superboy Prime.

Emma Frost - Born into a life of wealth and privilege, young Emma Frost soon discovers that she was also born with the uncanny telepathic abilities. Bored with her normal routine, Emma was recruited by Checkmate where she made her way from simple pawn all the way up to the organization's White Queen. After Maxwell Lord was placed in charge of the organization, Emma was expelled from Checkmate which came as somewhat of a shock to her, especially since she viewed Max as a friend after her time as a member of the Justice League International. Soon, she found herself recruited again, this time by Cyclops as he recruited her to join a previous incarnation of the Outsiders. It was during this time that the two rekindled their love from their time on the JLI and eventually married. Emma's powers were crucial during the Flashpoint event, when she learned that The Flash (Barry Allen) had altered reality by time traveling to prevent the death of his mother. Emma altered the altered Earth's heroes and together they were able to restore Earth's proper timeline without any lasting consequences.

Spider-Man (Peter Parker) - As a young boy, Peter Parker watched helplessly as his parents were murdered in a dark New York City alley. Luckily, Peter was adopted by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May and moved to Gotham City. A fateful field trip to Wayne Biotech leaves teenage Peter with the abilities and proportional strength of a spider which he uses to become a superhero and join the Teen Titans befriending a young Johnny Storm. After his Uncle Ben is killed by the Joker, Bruce Wayne seeing an almost mirror image of himself in Peter, steps in to begin mentoring the young man. Wayne helps Peter channel his rage and anger into a strong sense of responsibility towards justice. While partnering with Batman, Peter met his long time love Barbara Gordon. As an adult, Spider-Man became a crucial member of the Justice League, as his quick wit and intelligence are often critical to the team's success.

Nova (Richard Rider) - Nothing extraordinary ever happened to average, everyday teenager Richard Rider...that is until he was asked to become the first human member of the Nova Corps! The Nova Corps worked in tandem with the Green Lantern Corps until the Green Lanterns were all but destroyed during Hal Jordan's Emerald Twilight. Spread thin by the vacuum created in the absence of the Green Lanterns, the Nova Corps were ill prepared during an all out Reach Invasion. Richard soon found himself the sole survivor of the Nova Corps. Becoming the Nova Prime, Richard was able to band a ragtag group of cosmic heroes together and successfully stop the Reach once and for all. When Nova returned to Earth after the Infinite Crisis, he was instrumental in reforming the Justice League and the Nova Force was crucial to repelling Nekron and the Black Lanterns during the Blackest Night.

Human Torch (Johnny Storm) - Originally recruited to be a member of the Challengers of the Unknown, Johnny Storm stayed with the team until he was exposed to cosmic radiation which transformed him into the aptly named Human Torch. Wanting to explore life as a superhero, Johnny left the Challengers to join the Teen Titans where he met his best friend, Peter Parker. Later, after joining the Justice Society of America, Johnny bravely sacrificed his life during the Final Crisis with Apokolips...or so everyone thought. Having been rescued by Nova from the Source Wall itself, a more mature Johnny joins the Outsiders with more purpose and determination than ever.

Rogue - When the woman formerly known as Anna Marie discovered her superhuman ability by siphoning the life force of her boyfriend, her life was forever changed. Becoming Rogue, she took to the streets running from anyone and everyone until she was recruited by the original Fearsome Five. Not wanting to stay in one place for very long, Rogue left the group before being recruited by Deathstroke the Terminator. Eventually Rogue was freed from Deathstroke's control and became a longstanding member of the Doom Patrol but left the group when her friend Cyclops was forced to kill Dr. Caulder. Rogue eventually joined the Justice League International and played an important role when Doomsday arrived on Earth and attempted to kill Superman. When the Justice Society of America reformed, Rogue was asked to join by Jay Garrick and Alan Scott and it was with the Justice Society that Rogue finally learned how to control her powers. When the Society eventually disbanded, Rogue was on her own again, until receiving an invitation from her old friend Cyclops to join his new Outsiders.

Jack of Hearts - Born to a human man and an alien woman, Jack Hart never had an easy life. Unfortunately, that life was made even harder when he was accidentally exposed to an experimental energy source invented by his father called "Zero Fluid." After his father was murdered, Jack used his new found abilities to gain revenge on those responsible. Feeling no sense of justice or satisfaction from this revenge, Jack changed his direction and attempted to go down the path of the hero. Despite joining several teams, Jack never really made a name for himself until he was forced to make the ultimate sacrifice during Imperiex's War of Worlds. Unfortunately, Jack was not allowed to rest in peace, as he was reanimated as a Black Lantern during the Blackest Night event almost being responsible for the end of all life in the universe. Luckily Jack was given a new lease on life when he was brought back to life during the Brightest Day. Really wanting to make a difference and not wanting to waste his second chance, Jack of Hearts joins the Outsiders.


ImageImage

Red Lantern (Hal Jordan) - Hal Jordan Summers watched helplessly as he held onto his brother Alex while falling from the burning wreckage of his family's plane. As the brothers plummeted towards the Earth beneath them, Hal's mutant abilities first manifested. Without the aid of a ruby quartz ring to focus his energy, Hal's body perpetually emits a powerful concussive ruby energy. Years later, Hal became Professor Charles Xavier's first X-Man, leading the X-Men through their best and worst times. Eventually, Red Lantern would also become the headmaster of Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and the public face of all mutant kind. Tragedy would continue to visit Red Lantern, as the Phoenix Force, the same entity that plagued his second wife Jean Grey, would return to Earth and turn Hal into the all powerful Parallax. It took the combined forces of Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop Hal but not before he took the life of his friend and mentor, Charles Xavier. Now, Hal seeks redemption for actions that were not entirely his own.

Starfire - Princess Koriand'r was just a small child when her home planet of Tamaran was invaded by the Shi'ar Empire. Stripped of her title and separated from her loved ones, Kori was forced to spend the remainder of her youth in servitude. As she plotted her escape and revenge, she slowly made her way up within the ranks of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. When the Imperial Guard first clashed with the X-Men, Starfire saw her moment, betraying the guard and escaping to Earth. After joining the X-Men, Starfire began a long term relationship with founding X-Man Iceman. When the heroes of Earth started their Civil War, Starfire left the Earth hoping to finally return home to Tamaran but instead found a universe at war. Kori found herself leading a United Front against the Annihilation Wave and ultimately dealt the final fatal blow to Annihilus himself. After narrowly defeating Ultron and the Phalanx, Kori returned to Earth, hoping to help her adopted home take a more active role in defending the universe.

Bullseye: Nightwing is a natural acrobat, and incorporates that into his fighting style. Seems like a perfect challenge for someone who never misses.

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
I have always wanted to bring Captain America to the DCU and make him the leader of the Justice Society of America. The Man with No Fear has always said that Justice is blind, now he brings this philosophy to the JSA. More often than not she is thought of as a Goddess so it is only fitting to put Storm on a team that had many Godlike beings walk among their members. The original JSA had an Android among it's ranks that showed more heart than many humans, I would place The Vision in that role. A Vision created by Ivo that finds his true heart and joins the ranks of the JSA to take down the onslaught of his Android "brother" Amazo. The original JSA had Captain Marvel aka Shazam so this versions should have a Marvel of their own, so I give them Marvel Man. Must have a super genius on this team but I wanted someone that could be super powerful as well, so I chose Hany Pym, he gives the option of becoming Ant-man Giant Man Goliath Yellow Jacket Wasp etc. I need a legacy hero in my JSA and also a newbie to the hero scene so I am gonna combine both sorta with my version of Stargirl, Sister Grimm.


The JSA

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

On the Flip Side:

The Invaders

ImageImage

Superman, aka Reily Parker, is a strange visitor from another world. Young Kal-El was sent into the voids of deep space by his parents when his home planet of Krypton was on the brink of destruction. His rocket crashed landed in Forest Hills, NY and was discovered by young couple Ben and May Parker. Never having had children of their own they took in the passenger of the fallen spacecraft and raised him as their own. Ben would instill in young Reily the morals and ethics that would make him the first and greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe. Superman would appear and usher in the age of heroes knowing that with Great Power Always Comes Great Responsibility! Aquaman Monarch of the 7 Seas, King of the Oceans, Crown Prince of Atlantis! Born of an Atlantean Princess and surface dwelling lighthouse keep, Arthur Curry is a thing of myths and legends destined to rule over that which covers most of the entire planet Earth. Aquaman joined forces with Superman during WWII to form the first Superhero team known as The Invaders!

Ronin (Maya Lopez) Part of Batman, Inc. Often works with Blackbat (Cassandra Cain).

After the death of Charles Xavier, his best students and Earth's Mightiest Heroes band together to ensure that his dream doesn't die with them. Together, they are the...

Uncanny Avengers

ImageImageImage

Red Lantern (Hal Jordan) - Hal Jordan Summers watched helplessly as he held onto his brother Alex while falling from the burning wreckage of his family's plane. As the brothers plummeted towards the Earth beneath them, Hal's mutant abilities first manifested. Without the aid of a ruby quartz ring to focus his energy, Hal's body perpetually emits a powerful concussive ruby energy.

It took the combined forces of Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop Hal but not before he took the life of his friend and mentor, Charles Xavier. Now, Hal seeks redemption for actions that were not entirely his own.

Black Canary (Dinah Lance) - As a young socialite, one would think that Dinah Lance had the world at her fingertips. Unfortunately, as the middle child of a wealthy Massachusetts family she didn't have the attention from the one source that she craved. After discovering that she possessed the mutant ability to produce an ultrasonic "Canary Cry," Dinah struck out on her own. Before she could hit rock bottom, Dinah was brought into the infamous Hellfire Club where she became the club's Black Queen. Over the years, this brought her close to several prominent members of the Marvel Universe but also caused her to clash with the X-Men on many occasions. Upon parting ways with the Club, Dinah took on the name of Black Canary and became a teacher to the mutants of Generation X and Genosha. Eventually Dinah became headmistress of the X-Men alongside her lover, Red Lantern and has been a prominent member of the X-Men ever since. When the Phoenix returned to Earth, Dinah found herself possessed by the entity and was forced to watch as it brought some of her dark past back to the surface. Now Black Canary chooses to stand by the love of her life as they go down the path towards redemption together.

Starfire - Princess Koriand'r was just a small child when her home planet of Tamaran was invaded by the Shi'ar Empire. Stripped of her title and separated from her loved ones, Kori was forced to spend the remainder of her youth in servitude. As she plotted her escape and revenge, she slowly made her way up within the ranks of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard. When the Imperial Guard first clashed with the X-Men, Starfire saw her moment, betraying the guard and escaping to Earth. After joining the X-Men, Starfire began a long term relationship with founding X-Man Iceman. When the heroes of Earth started their Civil War, Starfire left the Earth hoping to finally return home to Tamaran but instead found a universe at war. Kori found herself leading a United Front against the Annihilation Wave and ultimately dealt the final fatal blow to Annihilus himself. After narrowly defeating Ultron and the Phalanx, Kori returned to Earth, hoping to help her adopted home take a more active role in defending the universe.

The Syndicate

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Two-Face: great villain for DD and Punisher. So misused in the DCU.
Parasite: I've said this a thousand times, Parasite would be a great Hulk (and even Thor) villain.
Deadshot: I can see him being a good rogue for Hawkeye or Winter Soldier
Zoom (Hunter Zolomon): "Ironman, I want to make you a better hero"
Black Adam: Norse vs Egyptian. Thunder vs. lightning. Thor vs. Teth.
Circe: Foil for Wanda? Yep. Foil for Doc Strange? Yep. Foil for the Defenders, regular or Fearless? Yep.
Gorilla Grodd: the FF love looking for new civilizations, be it on earth or elsewhere. Gorilla kingdom would be perfect for the FF to explore, and Grodd bring a perfect foil for Reed.

The Secret Society

The Ghost: a perfect foil for Batman and Bruce Wayne. Bats needs villains that arent psychotic, but someone after his secrets.
Bullseye: Nightwing is a natural acrobat, and incorporates that into his fighting style. Seems like a perfect challenge for someone who never misses.
Executioner: if you don't think a Skurge vs Wonder Woman battle wouldn't be epic, you need your head examined.

Sending unused or underutilized DC characters for Marvel to use better (in their own titles, main roles in team titles, etc.) and vice versa.

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
The Flash (Wally West) - Former New Warrior & New Avenger (not Illuminati New Avengers). Best friends with Kyle.

Adam Strange - Guardians of the Galaxy (written like the "Planet Heist" mini, a little like MacGyver in space)

Lady Blackhawk (Zinda Blake) - Invaders during WWII, the go-to pilot in books like Wolverine, Captain America, etc. Later on, a main character in Fearless Defenders.

Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner) - Earth's only Green Lantern, former New Warrior & New Avenger. Wally's best friend.

The Question (Vic Sage) - Loner, conspiracy nut in the MU. Like Batman without the people skills and the money. The lone hero out of a very corrupt Chicago, but will help other heroes on occasion.

Supergirl (Linda Danvers) - Basically Marvel's version of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer meets Veronica Mars. While she fights several threats in her hometown of Leesburg, VA (with an increasing percentage of supernatural threats), she runs into very few superpowered allies. For a short time, she's an "Earth born angel". As she gets older, she runs into characters like Doctor Strange. She has several ties with the members of PAD's X-Factor. Does not wear a costume, just street clothes or specialized gear.

Hawkman ("Carter Hall") - Back to the "Conan with wings" take. Or like Ares. But with the reincarnation aspect in play. When he's killed, he's instantly reborn somewhere and grows up like a normal person, "inheriting" memories of his life on his 21st birthday. I'd take advantage of the history of the MU and show him fighting Apocalypse in Egypt, Sinister in colonial times, the Nazis in WWII, Atlantis at some point, etc. And he doesn't always win, but he has to live with the consequences of his failures. He's able to use what he learns in each lifetime and add it to his knowledge of how to cause destruction, making his mind his most deadly weapon (followed by his mace, flight and enhanced strength, of course). Most of the time, he wears shirts.


ImageImageImage

Prime (Kevin Green) - He's how "Shazam" (ugh) should be. Think Ultimate Spider-Man set in the DCU with more of an original feel to it. At this point, he's still very young, so there's no team affiliations yet.

Ronin (Maya Lopez) Part of Batman, Inc. Often works with Blackbat (Cassandra Cain).

Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch) After making a deal with the devil to save his fiance (which, in the end, didn't quite work out), Danny Ketch finds himself bonded to a demon! Drifting for years, trying to do some good while looking for a cure (reminiscent of David Banner on the Hulk TV show), he eventually finds a spot on the Justice League Dark. He can not shift into the Ghost Rider until "innocent blood has been spilled", a fact that his more informed enemies can easily exploit.

I have always wanted to bring Captain America to the DCU and make him the leader of the Justice Society of America. The Man with No Fear has always said that Justice is blind, now he brings this philosophy to the JSA. More often than not she is thought of as a Goddess so it is only fitting to put Storm on a team that had many Godlike beings walk among their members. The original JSA had an Android among it's ranks that showed more heart than many humans, I would place The Vision in that role. A Vision created by Ivo that finds his true heart and joins the ranks of the JSA to take down the onslaught of his Android "brother" Amazo. The original JSA had Captain Marvel aka Shazam so this versions should have a Marvel of their own, so I give them Marvel Man. Must have a super genius on this team but I wanted someone that could be super powerful as well, so I chose Hany Pym, he gives the option of becoming Ant-man Giant Man Goliath Yellow Jacket Wasp etc. I need a legacy hero in my JSA and also a newbie to the hero scene so I am gonna combine both sorta with my version of Stargirl, Sister Grimm.


The JSA

On the Flip Side:

The Invaders

Superman, aka Reily Parker, is a strange visitor from another world. Young Kal-El was sent into the voids of deep space by his parents when his home planet of Krypton was on the brink of destruction. His rocket crashed landed in Forest Hills, NY and was discovered by young couple Ben and May Parker. Never having had children of their own they took in the passenger of the fallen spacecraft and raised him as their own. Ben would instill in young Reily the morals and ethics that would make him the first and greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe. Superman would appear and usher in the age of heroes knowing that with Great Power Always Comes Great Responsibility! Aquaman Monarch of the 7 Seas, King of the Oceans, Crown Prince of Atlantis! Born of an Atlantean Princess and surface dwelling lighthouse keep, Arthur Curry is a thing of myths and legends destined to rule over that which covers most of the entire planet Earth. Aquaman joined forces with Superman during WWII to form the first Superhero team known as The Invaders! The last member of The Invaders is an Android with the soul of a Man! Jim Hammond thought he was a man but he was actually a machine created for scientific purposes that was turned into a Weapon of Mass Destruction! Hammond rebelled against those that wanted to use him for their own gains and instead found kindred spirits that accepted him for who he was. The Red Tornado would then fight alongside his fellow Invaders saving the world many times over.
