Once again we will be doing the ABC Draft

This time though a new rule: you can chose to use the first letter OR the last letter, but you can't alternate. once u chose one route you must stick with that route through out the entire draft.

Alternate universes are allowed, but the Pym rule is in effect (mainly so that we don't have 8 Zatannas, and 8 X-23/Xs's)

As usual i will assign you the letter you start on, and you will continue to go in alphabetical order until you have used all letters (26 letters/picks in all)

Another new rule you MUST make at least 3 teams. So no massive armies this time around


Will start on Weds, i will give out letters on Monday afternoon.

Okay, every weekday (and 1 pick on the weekend), you'll make a pick. And then pick in alphabetical order.

Lets say you start with "A" (your starting letter will be assigned).

You'll make a pick that starts with "A", like Angela, Arthur Curry or Sam Alexander. (Code names, first names or last names are acceptable)

If you pick Sam Alexander (Nova) for your "A" pick, I can't pick him for my "S" pick or my "N" pick, and vice versa.

Your next pick would be for "B". Same deal.

Got it so far?

Yeah I got it now. What about team names? Does the ABC rule apply off the bat as well?

Good. I have plenty of ideas that I can use. One more thing, does it strictly have to be comic characters as well as I would love to use other genres for my teams.

Got it. Will have my team put together either tonight or tomorrow. But as I said can I use characters that aren't necessarily in costumes by chance?

the rules don't say comics only so you can use any medium, and they don't have to be costumed characters... but remember this draft is one that if you figure out your entire team(s) right away you could end up getting things screwed up.

I have vague ideas, like 10 of them I can work with down to three to five teams.

R? I'll start looking tonight.

I've got a couple of ideas for my teams. I think that I may do 2 villains teams and 1 hero team to battle both but that could change. The problem that I have with ABC drafts is that my final teams very rarely ever end up looking like the teams that I originally had in mind.
