Unlike most drafts, I have a theme in mind AND picks planned out.
However, it's pretty specific and there's no real backups if I miss a character.
Actually... I'm rethinking my original theme. I think I have an idea that's more fun.
Zartan, Dog Logan, Bebop, Slayback, Bushwacker, Kano, Whiplash
In 2002, a military crack unit was experimented on, sent on covert operations all over the world, and once the government found there usefulness complete framed them for crimes they didn't commit. They were sent to a maximum superhuman prison, where they promptly escaped to the New York underground. If you need their help, and you can find them, maybe you can hire...
Hannibal Smith, Grifter, John Wraith, Jenny Sparks, Al Pratt, Paladin, Jimmy Woo
Heh... really digging the fact that, instead of Avengers or Justice League... you went with Dreadnaughts & A-Team 7. Some cool picks all around, especially Grifter, Hannibal, Jimmy Woo, Zartan, Jenny Sparks, Dog Logan, Paladin... and then you thought outside the box with Slaymaster, Bebop, Bushwacker! Very cool!
From screens large and small comes...the S.I.N.Sinister Infamous Network
Casanova Frankenstein, Nuclear Man, Trickster, Malcolm Merlyn, Harley Quinn, Sandman, Mordru
From the past, into the present, to ensure our future...they are J.L.A.Justice from Live Action
Nick Fury, Meteor Man, Isis, The Cape, Electra Woman, Man from Atlantis, Zatanna
As always, great use of acronyms!
I like how you used some "classic" characters like Zatanna, some forgotten about ones like Trickster, some characters from mort-y shows like Birds of Prey and the Cape... yeah, I'd TOTALLY watch this show!
Crystar, She-Ra, Changeling, Storm, Metamorpho, Jason, Captain MarvelReflecticons
Diamond Lil, Floronic Man, Hobgoblin, Jinx, Silver Swan, Zardeth, Chilla
Some definite oddball picks here, too. But I especially like the combination of Crystar & She-Ra, Hobgoblin, Captain Marvel and Jinx. You used heroes & villains from a variety of places! Good job!
Your Marvel team looks like it's been ripped from the comics. I could TOTALLY see this Uncanny X-Force/Thunderbolts combo being published.
As for your DC team, I think my favorite thing is how you used Flashpoint Batman for your "Secret Six Squad".
Grayson wrote:The Revenge Society
Growing tired of his repeated failure to seize control of the Guild of Calamitous Intent, the Phantom Limb sets his sights on a different prize. If he can't control the largest organized supervillainy organization in the world, then he will simply control the world instead. In order to do this, he begins recruiting villains who have been cast aside by their primary arch-nemeses and in secret begins training and rearming them to be better than they were before. Counting on the world viewing them only as failures, the Revenge Society starts small but in a matter of months gain significant power and hold key victories over villainous and heroic teams alike.
Phantom Limb, Torpedo Man, Porcupine, Orb, Maxie Zeus, Hypno Hustler, Egg Fu
The All-New Time Masters
In the puzzling absence of Rip Hunter, the space-time continuum mysteriously begins to fall apart. Brought together by Booster Gold, the all-new Time Masters are tasked with the responsibility of holding all of time and space together. Plucked from various time streams throughout the multiverse, these individuals operate with the knowledge that failure literally is not an option...
Spider-Man (Miguel O'Hara), Batman (Terry McGinnis), Mind Witch (Megan Summers), Booster Gold, Nightstar, Torunn, Superman (Kal Kent)
LOVE the Time Masters! Particularly the trio of Spider-Man 2099, Batman Beyond & Booster Gold. I'm not as familiar with the rest, but they seem cool.
As for your villains... Egg Fu! Porcupine! Phantom Limb! Orb! Hypno Hustler! That's great! Hilarious AND original!
I'm only familiar with the original Rangers, so I don't really know a lot about most of the folks you drafted. But props on picking (and sticking with) an unusual and pretty unique theme!

Ryu Hayabusa, Alucard, Proto Man, Vectorman, Kratos, Blaze, Magdalene
Bob, Dot, Matrix, AndrAIa, Ray Tracer, Mouse, Turbo
This reminds me of an updated "Captain N: The Game Master"... in a good way! Would love to see the characters I know (Ryu, Alucard, Kratos, Proto Man) in a shared universe, exploring different video game universes and whatnot... Always appreciate it when folks show love to Ninja Gaiden!
