Justice League Draft

Post by WorldWideWade » 21 Jun 2018, 16:16

Welcome to the Justice League draft! 10 players will unite 7 DC heroes to form the ultimate fighting team. The DC's greatest heroes need the world's worst villains to battle so a team of 3 villain characters will also be chosen to prove truth, justice, and peace can overcome great evil.

This will be 10 rounds and draft order will be serpentine. If you are unsure how these drafts work visit the last draft run by Cable here:

viewtopic.php?f=13&t=7926

I believe we are all veterans here so this should run rather smoothly. I will send reminder messages to players after a day has passed and they have not chosen on their turn. After 2 days we will move on and they can post at any point with their missed pick from the characters available at that point. Since this is a smaller draft, please check in fairly frequently especially if you are near the beginning or end of the draft order as your turn approaches.

You can pick a hero or villain on your turn during any round but you are capped at 7 heroes and 3 villains. It is up to the player in how precisely the interactions between the heroes and villains will play out in their story line if they choose to create one. The idea is for the seven heroes to start as a Justice League but other team ideas are allowed as this is more of an all DC draft. I also chose to concentrate on the present time period so no Legion of Superheroes or Jonah Hex unfortunately. Some of the villains were collected into a single team which can be anywhere from 2-7 characters for the price of one! Hopefully your Heroes are strong enough to take them all on.

One of the mechanics of the draft is that there are certain identities of superheroes that are specified like Bruce Wayne Batman, while other superhero identities are not, even if multiple people have been that hero, like Doctor Fate. The players can choose a specific character, like Kent Nelson or Linda Strauss, or not bother with the identity if they don't feel like researching. The same goes if they choose a character that has different hero identities, like Wally West can be Kid Flash even though he's listed as Flash. The named character supersedes the identity so there can be multiple Batman theoretically (Dick Grayson and Bruce Wayne) but only one person can draft a specific character. This mechanic can apply to the continuity as well if the player feels like putting in that effort. Example Superboy - Clark Kent pre-crisis. This would mean any other Clark Kent is off limits however.

Good Luck:

The game has concluded!

Well it's funny, because I've been wracking my brain to come up with an idea for an original draft to run, and yesterday I finally thought of an idea, but you snooze you lose I guess. If there's not enough interest for Justice League let me know and I could run mine. For the record though I would play the JL draft.

I've come up with a list of heroes and villains. There will be 150 heroes to choose from and 75 villains. People will be able to choose 7 Justice League members and 3 villains for them to face over 10 rounds in whatever order they choose. There will be a variety of characters from throughout the DC universe but I have tried to make them the most recognizable ones at the same time. The maximum number of people is probably 15 for this draft but if we get at least a few more people interested, we can start early next week.

A few things I think that would be cool to add to our draft...

Which DC continuity our roster will exist in:
Pre crisis (1930s-1986)
Post Crisis (1986-1994)
Post Zero hour (1986-2005)
Post Infinite Crisis (2005-2011)
New 52 (2011-2016)
Rebirth (2016-Current)

Will it exist on the main DC Earth or one of it’s current 52 worlds?

And of course the usual premise and title name...

Any thoughts on that?

I have characters from various continuities included.

One of the mechanics of the draft is that there are certain identities of superheroes that are specified like Bruce Wayne Batman, while other superhero identities are not, even if multiple people have been that hero, like Doctor Fate. The players can choose a specific character, like Kent Nelson or Linda Strauss, or not bother with the identity if they don't feel like researching. The same goes if they choose a character that has different hero identities, like Wally West can be Kid Flash even though he's listed as Flash.

This mechanic can apply to the continuity as well if the player feels like putting in that effort. However, since I assume many players are not that familiar with DC lore, I'm trying to keep it simple.

With DC having such strong legacy hero lineages, are we getting all the Flashes, the Green Lanterns, the Robins, the Batgirls, etc?

A majority of the most popular ones will be represented in one form or another. I think I will start up the draft tomorrow. I will go ahead and participate as well so that we have at least 9 players. If we can get one more player that will make it 10 which is a nice size. I will use a random number generator and post the order and list tomorrow. Anyone that wants to jump in has approximately 24 hours.

I'm certainly not surprised Batman went first. When you have a choice between Batman and not Batman, Batman is usually the correct choice. When I randomized the order of the draft I actually came out as the first pick (the first time that's ever happened). Since I was also running the draft I thought nobody would believe that I was randomly assigned the first player spot, so I randomized again.

Who's the best possible villain? Why a corrupt businessman who becomes the President of the United States.

Of course I could only be talking about:
