A QUICK WORD
Ok so these characters may not be made completely (or at all) out of tin, or be teenagers who live in a giant T shaped tower located in San Francisco, or Giant hulking creatures with not private parts that destroy city walls and eat people. But for my fantasy draft team, I chose to theme it all around robots/cyborg/machine/AI characters from all genres of fandom culture. I hope I win this contest with my team, but either way, it was fun to make.
While making the team, before thinking of the characters themselves, I wanted a sort of THEME, something to base my team around.
MACHINES TO PLAY THE GAME FOR ME!
THE FUTURE OF SPORTS!
Then came the team name. Name deprived from Tin: (Tin Man from wizard of oz and Tin, one of the Metal Men from DC) and Titans (Like Teen Titans, Attack on Titan, and Remembering the Titans).
Then the team itself.
LISTS UPON LISTS of different characters, Until I found the perfect team.
(BTW, it was between this and a wizard/sorcerer based team known as "The Magic Men" staring Jace Beleren as Team Captain, Gandalf the White as 1st pick, Professor Dumbledore as 2nd pick and 3rd pick being Doctor Stange)
Team Captain: Cyborg (DC)
A strong leader.
A super intelligent super computer for a brain.
High tech battle armor is literally is body.
Cyborg is an AMAZING leader for the Tin Titans,
Not just because he's a lean,mean, fighting machine (literally),
But also because before he was Cyborg,
He was FOOTBALL WIDE RECEIVER VIC STONE:
If anyone should be in charge for a football game, it's this kid.
1st Pick: OPTIMUS PRIME
Every team needs a muscle, and our muscle is Optimus Prime.
Leader of the Autobots.
Defender of Earth.
And just a straight up tank (ok not literally, hes a semi truck. The real tank Transformer is Brawl)
But imagine seeing a semi truck driving through the endzone,
With the rest of the Tin Titans covering inside.
Or just straight up running 7-10 steps across the field,
Mowing down his opponents as he goes.
First pick goes out to this amazing creation.
2ND PICK: The Vision (Marvel)
Forged by the evil robot ULTRON,
A hero with the heart and compassion of a man.
But the abilities to destroy a city,
Simply if he gets bored.
This android is my second pick due to all the unique features he possess.
He can fly over other team members with ease, or simple just phase through them.
If things get rough, he can blast them with his lasers.
Just a solid built character for this team.
3RD PICK: T-800 (THE TERMINATOR)
"I'll be back."
THIRD PICK of the draft goes to The Terminator.
Why you might ask?
Picture The Terminator approaching the endzone,
Suddenly, he's about to get tackled,
BUT BEFORE HE DOES, THE OTHER GUY IS FLAT ON HIS BACK,
THE BARREL OF A SHOTGUN LODGED INTO HIS MOUTH
"Hasta la vista, baby."
My fantasy football team was very enjoyable to put together, and just fun to think about.
I mean, could you imagine The Terminator throwing a football to Cyborg?
Or The Vision soaring through the skies into the endzone with a football? Or just simply seeing a semi zoom across a football field with 3 other robots inside.
So much fun.
I hope you all enjoyed.
