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.

That's right, the universe is facing a threat so great it has never seen before, and you can only pick 4 people to fight it. So here we go, my top 4 picks!

Captain: The Tactician + Medic - Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange, a.k.a the Sorcerer Supreme, is one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe. He has a long list of powers, some of which are:

  • Invisibility and Phasing
  • Telekinesis
  • Teleportation
  • Extremely powerful shields/force fields
  • Time Manipulation
  • Dimensional travel
  • Ability to harness the power of mystical gods
  • Elemental control (ability to control the elements and the nature)
  • Black Magic (Ability to absorb powers of others)
  • Telepathy, Hypnotism, and Illusions

And thats only "some" of them. Doctor Strange is often compared to Cosmic Entities such as Galactus. Strange has also rescued Eternity, the embodiment of the Universe itself!

Aside from that, as his title suggests, he is (or more accurately, was) a doctor, and a surgeon, so that helpful for any medical emergencies.

Draft 1: The Muscle - Superman

Do I really need to explain this choice!? Despite what haters may say, Superman IS one of the most powerful characters ever. Some of his powers include:

  • Heat Vision
  • Freeze Breath
  • Super Speed
  • Super Strength
  • Invulnerability

He is so strong, that we mostly see him holding back against his enemies. Truth is, we have never (or rarely) seen Superman use his full force against any enemy, except perhaps Darkseid. Once he gets angry, its virtually impossible to stop him. His only weakness is kryptonite, and you can't just buy that in your next-door grocery store.

Draft 2: The Speed - Flash

The Scarlet Speedster is one of the most underrated and most powerful heroes in the DC Universe. His true potential, like Superman, stays hidden most of the times. There's no limit to how fast he can run. He once saved half a million people from a nuclear bomb in 0.00001 microseconds by transporting them 70 miles away from the detonation point, thats (I'll spare you the maths) 13 trillion times the speed of light. Thats fast.

Not to mention his wisecracking personality, and those flashy puns. (See what I did there)?

Draft 3: The All Rounder - Deadpool

Probably THE most popular and best anti-hero out there. Deadpool is a result of the Weapon X program, and has extraordinary abilities. Along with having awesome fighting skills, with swords AND with guns, he is also a great comedian. He isn't called the "Merc with a Mouth" for nothing. And of course, he has a healing factor. Not to mention that he almost killed the whole Marvel universe once... alone.

Seeing him and Flash engage in a verbal battle would be a dual combo of epic fighting skills and a good laugh along with it.
