I thought about using Thor, but I thought that might be a little overkill. I also had Starman and Commander Steel on the team, but I thought it was a little much...

But DAMN, going up against Amazing Man and the Master Men, I had to have some power there! 8)

At least that's what I was hoping it was. The use of Ymir as her main guy was awesome.

Yeah, it was kinda obvious. There really was no way I could hide it, so the "big reveal" was more like a "Yes, I guessed it" lol

But, I am glad you enjoyed :-D

By Brian Michael Bendis and Ryan Ottely

This book would be about the misadventures of 2 of the most powerful heroes in the world as the struggle with the everyday peaks and valleys of teenage love as well as trying to save the universe.

Absolutely love this concept!

i was gonna put Dinah and Black Cat on the team, but i really like the dynamic between babs, helena, and zinda without dinah there, and i didn't want to use Felicia as the "token" villian gone good, so i put Songbird (for the whole birds theme)

Seriously though those are some awesome teams. Love the Secret Six and Guardians of the Galaxy in particular.

Those were the exact ones I liked

Okay, so 7 men (and women) are brought together by an up and coming crime lord. He wants a collection of hard men to protect his empire and look after his interests. He got some that had kept themselves off of the radar, ones that he felt he could mold. He wanted some that weren't "metas" because he had a plan for them.

However, they didn't much take to "the carrot and the stick". When these 7 found out that their loved ones were endangered to keep them motivated, it was like awaking a sleeping giant.

The Secret Seven

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Deadshot
Catman
Ezekiel Stane
Angstrom Levy
Zealot
Cardiac
Toxin

*REALLY wanted to use Taskmaster, but I didn't think he'd be all that different from Deadshot here, and I didn't want that. Thought about using the Spider Doppleganger or White Tiger, but I think Toxin's more interesting here. :)

And who's the criminal mastermind lurking in the shadows? Who's the armor clad leader leader in the cloak who's behind it all? Could it be.... DOOM?






Image

No. It's not Doom. Instead, it's the reborn Overlord. Who, you ask? The dude who impaled Savage Dragon and chopped off his hand when they first MET. Yeah, he's a bad ass. And with all the hijinks going on in Hell (see my earlier posts), he's taking the opportunity to rebuild his life on Earth.

But he miscalculated (or did he?) and now the Seven are gunning for him.



Of course, Stane betrays the team to Overlord and, after the "defeat" of Overlord, Levy turns on the team, trying to take Overlord's empire and resources for himself.

Basically... He's one of Invincible's baddies.

Wikipedia wrote:Little is known about Angstrom Levy's background; including how and when he developed the power to open up portals to alternate realities. At some point Levy sets out to amass information about the various alternate Earths so as to be able to travel through them more safely. To this end he contacts alternate versions of himself from hundreds of parallel Earths, and convinces them to help him. Next Levy frees the supervillains the Mauler Twins from prison on the condition that they help him create a machine that would allow him to copy the memories of his alternate reality counterparts into his own brain.

With the aid of versions of themselves from other realities, the Mauler Twins are able to construct the machine. Levy is in the process of uploading the memories of his alternate selves when the process was interrupted by Invincible who is trying to apprehend the Maulers. The Maulers are on the verge of killing Invincible when Levy halts the machine to try and stop them, causing it to overload and explode. Unbeknownst to Invincible, Levy survives the explosion but was horribly mutated and suffered internal organ damage.

Surgeons are able to rebuild and even enhance Levy’s body but they were unable to correct his monstrous appearance. Levy is left with a burning hatred of Invincible whom he blames for the accident. He is able to discover that Invincible was really Mark Grayson by travelling to realities where his identity is public knowledge.

Levy takes Mark's mother and his toddler baby brother hostage in their home and lures Mark in with a phone message. When Mark arrives to rescue his family, Levy sends him into the Marvel Universe. Levy mistreats his family, tossing the baby (who is caught safely) around and breaking his mother's arms in retaliation for a failed attack with a lamp.

Mark returns but is sent to various other realities, such as one with zombies and some with familiar and not so familiar super-powered beings. On one of his many futile trips back home, Mark learns that Levy intends simply to wear him down and kill him, along with his family. Then he will do the same to all alternate Marks.

Mark, tricking his opponent by waiting on one side of a portal, manages to tackle Levy into an abandoned wasteland of an Earth. Overestimating the success of Levy's enhancements, Mark seemingly beats him to death on accident. Mark is rescued from this wasteland by future versions of his friends, who had traveled through time and space to find him.

I'm planning to do something with the G.L.L (Great Lakes League) this afternoon sometime.

But until then... BUMP!
