Interesting, I never would have thought anyone would pick her, especially not at such an early stage.

She was on my reserve list, and with Nova taken she would have taken his place.

Yeah I've learned from these drafts never assume any character is safe!

I think my next pick is pretty safe. Though I worry I'm going to lose another pick going the route I want.

I'm torn between two that I desperately want for my team, and I'm second and then 23rd to pick my next members. Should I go after the more prominent Avenger first or aim for the character that I suspect to be more popular on this board? While waiting for Martijn to make his choice, I have re-considered at least twice now. The suspense is killing me.

If you look at the leader list, Iron Man, Hank Pym, Luke Cage, Hawkgirl,.. are still available and they are considered „prominent“ characters. So maybe go the popular on this board route. We have seen that B- and C- listers are often more popular than the prominent ones.

Thanks for the advice, Urban. I like it when characters can combine their powers. Songbird's the battery, and Dazzler is the outlet…

Now, anybody come near my third choice, and I'll send those two former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents after you!

Cable needs a trustworthy second-in-command, someone who is willing to take risks and would do everything to keep the team safe.

Therefore, he reached out to a former X-Men and Avengers teammate, a one man army: Rogue

Current power set: Cyberpathy, low level telepathy, optic blasts, slightly enhanced physical attributes, martial arts expert

I figured that alot of people on a X-board would lead toward the traditional x-characters.

I love Avengers characters too so I did think I’d be able to get more characters I wanted.

I actually only chose Sunspot because 1)Spectrum was taken and 2)I think Sunspot was a much much better character under the Avengers banner. So I’ll say now, don’t look for many x-characters on this team.

She's my least favorite of his love interests, but she started a family with the man and I love this about her. Isabella Kane aka Smasher is going to be great here.

So just to give people an unsolicited invite into my thought process...

I usually try to structure my teams based on current continuity (so I usually don’t resurrect, repower, take from another teaM, etc) characters and I go for my faves...

So with that said, I’m able to grab one of my favorite new characters: Manifold
Morrison Era 2001-2005, Decimation Era from 2005-2012, Bendis Era 2012-2016, M-Pox era 2016-2017, and Resurrxion 2017-2019, Hickman Era 2019-?

See, I know Izzy is well known, but I honestly don't expect anyone had plans to grab her until later rounds.

I like BC don’t like to resurrect people on these drafts but I have a decent backstory for my next character. Agent Venom

That's instant karma for you taking Manifold... I would have picked him as my final member, if he hadn't been drafted by then. He's not centrally important though, I can do my theme without him.

I keep being surprised by how many minor Avenger characters are picked so early on.

Hercules is a mid-tier Avenger character I’d say. But I expected him to last at least till things swung back around. I knew i should have grabbed him first and waited for Manifold!

Never plan on who your final character will be. You just take whatever dregs are left and force them into your team regardless if it makes sense.

Also welcome to UXN where we will totally draft Rockslide over an Original 5 X-man or just about anyone over Iron Man.

Lol...*is the guy who loves two of the O5*

You know I would’ve drafted Tony but I’m imagining my lineup existing alongside the current Avengers lineup, so I didn’t want Tony pulling a double-duty or him leaving that team. So I’m trying people not currently starring in a book.
