The NFL season is upon us, and for a lot of people (myself included) that means it's time to start thinking about fantasy drafts. Well, today we're kicking off our own little FAN-tasy competition on Moviepilot. We want YOU to assemble the most amazing team of cinematic characters, and YOU get to choose the winner!
Our universe is facing a threat the likes of which has never been seen before. The 'powers that be' have released little information, but we know our world is in jeopardy and we must defend it with our lives! Your mission: Put together a fantasy team of your favorite fictional characters and film personalities from any fandom (movies, games or TV shows) or cinematic universe. Create your own team name, choose 1 team captain and 3 'draft picks' to make up your dream team.
Choosing the Winner
Once the competition has ended, we will compile the 5 most creative entries and let the Moviepilot community vote for their favorite teams! The top 2 will win an awesome prize (listed below).
Need a little inspiration to help you get started? Here's what my entry would look like!
The MP Marauders, a.k.a...
My Team Captain: Sir Stan Lee
That's right folks. I just can't think of a better mentor/personality to lead my team than the Marvel mastermind that is Stan Lee. I would want him as my captain because of his creative inventiveness, his ability to lead and organize people (and superheroes) as well as his willingness to make the tough decisions. If one of my guys is lacking, I can count on Stan to get in their face and remind them that they have a job to do. Plus, if we have to infiltrate the other teams' HQ to gain a competitive advantage, we can send the master of cameo himself to get it done.
1st Round Pick: Goku (孫 悟空) - Dragon Ball Z
"With the first overall pick in the 2015 Moviepilot FANtasy draft, the MP Marauders select... SON GOKU, from the Dragon Ball universe!"
If we're going to take this thing all the way, I need teammates who are going to be loyal to the cause and not back out when things get tough. Goku is as loyal as they come, and in all his travels he has proved to us that he is willing to put his friends, family and the greater good of humanity before his own life. As tough as he is, Goku also maintains a childlike innocence, which I feel is one of his most underrated qualities. He is an icon, and one of the most powerful beings of his kind. Despite all of this he is always humble, and doesn't take himself too seriously. Not to mention, he has super human strength, speed and reflexes. This pick is a no brainer.
2nd Round Pick: Beatrix Kiddo - Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
When I reflect on all of my favorite on screen characters, I can't think of anyone who hates losing more than this gal here. Whenever she gets knocked down she stands back up 6 inches taller. She's been to hell, took pictures, put them into a photo album and came back. My only concern about adding her to my team is that she likes to do things on her own. I'm afraid that if she can't work with the rest of the guys that she'll go rogue. Despite all of this, her combat skills, bravery and killer instincts make her un-pass-up-able (that's a word now). Beatrix Kiddo, welcome to the Marauders.
3rd Round Pick: Peter Quill (Star-Lord) - Guardians of The Galaxy
My third and final pick is for Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord. He is a master strategist and his problem solving abilities are second to none. He has knowledge and skills applicable to the human world as well as the extra terrestrial realm. From his exploits in Guardians of The Galaxy he also proved that he is capable to working in teams and bringing people together to achieve greatness. We already have a few strong personalities on our roster and I think Quill will bring balance and leadership to our group; he simply brings the best out in people. Last but not least, we need someone to lead the line when we do our victory dance.
