Welcome to drafts, where your entire concept is thrown out in one pick.

Jesus, I can already tell this is going to be a brutal draft. Since I can't have Captain Britain, I will choose Black Panther as my leader.

I anticipate most people will go with their Team Leaders in Round 1 but am interested if anyone will go a different route. My top two picks for leaders are probably unlikely to make it down to me so I'm withholding a strategy until I see what kind of team leader I can build my team around.
I guess the last person to pick their leader can take their damn time doing so, as nobody can snatch their remaining choice away from them. On the other hand, they still might want to pick their leader sooner than the final round, as it will open up the four remaining unpicked leaders for general membership... that is, if they even want one of them on their team.

Yeah, and I didn’t think anyone would pick Brian Braddock. I mean, no one likes him. He is the Alex Summers of Great Britain.

So, so wrong. Brian is great - so many angles to him. He's a nuclear physicist empowered by an ancient wizard and serves on a team of multi-dimensional counterparts. As well as a raging alcoholic.

I like him very much, but I thought everyone is picking the Disney Princesses first. I had a whole story developed for him and the team. And then EphemeristX happened. With the very first pick, for God’s sake..

Brian is pretty much the most popular recognizably British superhero. Psylocks is much more popular, but most people wouldn't be able to tell you that, present company excluded.

I'm waiting on Ring to send me the answers to a few questions, but I am really worried the character I'm considering the most is the one you want. Because I know you like them. :(

... you’re proud of yourself? Are you happy now? Are you happy that you ruined my first pick?

Well, congratulations!

Is there a psychologist here?

Yes you did...
Luckily I had a few picks up my sleeve...

With Captain America and Black Panther still positioning the main Avengers team as the main force (seen in Jason aaron’s The Avengers), T’Challa picked one man to lead a team of Avenegrrs to operate out of ______ to specifically defend _____ from threats. We knew him as a member of the New Mutants, X-Force, The Avengers and A.I.M., now he’s back in action Citizen X aka Sunspot!

So, I wasn't going to take him first, to the surprise of a few, but losing Black Panther, Falcon, and Monica just tells me to say "screw it" and possibly ruin BC's plans because one of us was going to hurt the other anyways.
