Me too.

I have 1 idea for tonight and no ideas I want to go with for Monday. All the ideas I have are either taken or not a good fit...

... so I'm glad we have until Sunday to figure it out. :)

Daisy Johnson, Eden Fesi, Garabed Bashur, Adam Brashear, Julia Carpenter, Navid Hashim
(Quake, Manifold, Black Box, Blue Marvel, Madame Web, Arabian Knight)

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. "Quake" is more of a junior Nick Fury than "Nick Fury Jr." She worked with him and a handful of heroes during Fury's Secret War and quickly moved up the ranks of SHIELD. Aside from Fury & Black Widow, she's the only known agent with Level 10 clearance. She was one of Fury's "Secret Warriors" when Fury went underground and was even an Avenger for a little while.

Like Fury & Tony Stark, she's been the leader of SHIELD. Like Stark, she's had to erase some of her own memories. Like Fury, she's no longer in charge of SHIELD. In "Secret Avengers", she's been "indefinitely suspended" over her handling of a specific situation (attempted assassination of a foreign power). She knows something big's coming. But she's not going to let a suspension stop her.

Which is where our story begins....

Her first stop once she's on the run? Eden Fesi, a.k.a Manifold. He's an Avenger and, more importantly, he's a teleporter with unlimited potential. They were Secret Warriors together, she looked after him when he fell into a coma and, in turn, he helped her during that memory erasing ordeal.

From there, their next stop is India to pick up her next recruit, a technopath called Black Box. Maimed by Sabretooth, Bashur was believed deceased until his recent encounters with Deadpool. He's been on both sides of the law and never too far from SHIELD observers/bagmen. They need him as tech support for Johnson and to help contact their next recruit... Blue Marvel!

Blue Marvel has been around the Marvel Universe since the 60's, but was forced into retirement and now focuses mainly on his research. Johnson wants to recruit him, not only for the power that he brings to the table (even if he only participates in the occasional mission), not only for the use of his secret underwater base in the Mariana Trench but also for assistance with the next recruit, the psychic who initially warned former Director Johnson of the impending doom... Madame Web!

Julia Carpenter "inherited" the precognative abilities of the former Madame Web upon her death. Even though she's now blind, she still has her Spider-Woman powers and can handle herself in a fight. She foresaw an upcoming crisis and, knowing that Spider-Man wasn't the one to go to for this problem, she contacted the person she saw in her visions. She's been contacting the director for months now, helping Johnson understand the threat that's on the horizon and giving her time to plan.

While Carpenter has limited knowledge of the future, she had no idea Johnson's next step was to recruit the Arabian Knight. When SHIELD compromised, Johnson has had to look outside for help. Hashim has a uniform made from an unravelled magic carpet that allows him to fly, a magic sword and a great deal of military knowledge. And he surprisingly gets along well with Johnson's next recruit....

First Pick: Daisy Johnson
Ties: Manifold was a Secret Warrior with Johnson
"I'm Afraid of Americans": Black Box (Born in India)
Rookie of the Decade: Blue Marvel (First Appearance: November 2008)
Mind Over Matter: Madame Web (precognative)

Hoping to help young Jean Grey with nightmares that are connected to the psychic signature of the late Professor Charles Xavier, Cyclops leaves Earth for Shi'ar space. Unbeknownst to Scott, Jean snuck aboard his ship. Too far from Earth to send her home, Scott must now protect a version of his deceased ex-wife while searching the vast Shi'ar Imperium for any signs of the professor. Scott and his team are also unaware that the deeper they go into the unknown, the closer they bring the young Jean Grey to the fiery clutches of whatever remains of the Phoenix!

They strike from the inside and damage where it hurts the most, and are gone before anyone knew what hit them. They look out for the little guy, for the every man, who cannot look out for themselves. They are...

Question about Mondays pick, does the name have to be exactly like the historical figures name or just part of their name? Example could Abe Sapien be used with Abraham Lincoln?

That works for me...

Abe is short for Abraham, like Rich is short for Richard.

I would assume that one name would be sufficient... as long as it's not a particularly common name these days. Probably couldn't get away with Richard Grayson for Richard Nixon or Oliver Queen for Oliver North, but Abe Sapien for Abraham Lincoln is different. Or so I'd imagine...

I was thinking it meant that you match on the historical last name, like Hannibal Lector, Wilson Fisk, or Franklin Richards. Otherwise it seems too easy. And it wasn't my entry.

Question regarding Monday: What if I have a historical figure whose last name is the same as a characters first name. Does that work?

Ok I just took a random DC Comics characters real name and googled it to see if it matched with any real people and surprisingly it did. So I have my pick for Monday now and am pretty confident no one else will pick him.
