The HEF creates... "The Black Avengers"
« on: August 09, 2006, 07:11:02 am »
Hello Everyone!
  Since the creation of "The Black Avengers" is a constantly debated topic, I've decided to start the ball rolling on OUR official "Black Avengers" team.
  I'm at work right now (and shouldnt be online) so I'm gonna get to the gist of things.
  On a daily basis, the participating members of the HEF will submit and vote on every aspect concerning the creation of "The Black Avengers" from team name and number of members to their base of operations and the villains that they'll face, as well as a great origin story.
  As soon as this is done, we will create our very own "FanFic" storylines...allowing each participating member to write a chapter that ties in cohesively with the previous chapter.
  Get it?
  Got it?
  Good.

Let's begin.
Just to get the ball rolling, the story goes like this:

Taking place towards the end of the Civil War storyline, Cap has decided to go off-grid with Fury in order to flush out the powers-that-be that are being the explosion at Stamford and the passage of the Superhero Registration Act.  Before he goes, Cap tells Falcon to create a new team.

Falcon does so...in his own image.
;)
The first person that he asks is Luke Cage.
Cage gives Falcon some dap and says, "You ain't even gotta ask, bruh."
*********************************

Day 1:  Post your vote for Team Name, # of Members and The Members You want on the team
BONUS Question:  Do you want this "Black Avengers" team to reflect the original Avengers lineup?

ie: do you want a Cap, Iron Man, QuikSilver, Yellowjacket, Hawkeye type character lineup?

And yes... this team's lineup will be mainly AFrican American.

If there aren't any questions, let the games begin.

I hope everyone will participate.

Based on the majority of votes, the # of team members and specific members will be based on votes.  In case of ties, then we'll come up with tie breakers when needed.

 ;D

I'm excited.  I've been thinkin' about this since yesterday but I only had a few minutes to type of the explanation and the rules.  I hope y'all can understand what I'm babblin' about.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!

Hype, so that means that you only want 5 people on your team, right?

Sin... get on the ball son.

Sin... get on the ball son.

Guy encounters robber in dark alley.
Robber brandishing gun tells the man, "Your money or your life!"
The guy, obviously impaled on the horns of a dilemna replies, "I'm thinking it over!"

I keep trying to get on the ball, but it's hard to keep from falling off. You remember how the "Mighty Black Avengers" thread went  ;)  Nobody could agree on anything.

Team Name: That's a toughie. No one seems to want the word "Black" appearing as part of it. Except you my friend. Your choice for the team being called "BLACK" says it all  :)  If anything, at the moment anyway, I'm inclined to go with something someone suggested earlier, "Obsidian Force" or something like that.

# of Members: I believe there should be as few members as possible so that the team and their stories are streamlined and don't become bogged down under their own weight. I say six core members, with two very prominent and powerful members providing financial, moral and at times, physical support.


Do I want "Obsidian Force" to reflect "Original Avengers" line up: Well...not necessarily. Like the Original Avengers, the "Obsidian Force" should consist of Marvel's better known African-American characters, but Original Avengers team of Hulk, Iron Man, Wasp, Ant-Man, and Thor doesn't strike me as being particularly functional. Iron Man provides the technical/financial contribution. Ant-Man helps out with the scientific/tech side. Wasp could help out with the financial contribution, but I don't remember her ever doing so. Thor and Hulk provide sheer, brute power. The team has members capable of striking their enemies from long range as well, but none of the members seemed to be a true leader. That's where Captain America came in.

Therefore, I believe the "Obsidan Force" should be able to have a member possessed of near-infinite personal wealth to finance the team's operations. The team should have a member who is solid when it comes to field generalship. They need at least one member who's strength is nearly off the charts. But unlike the Original Avengers, the team needs to consist of members who will understand their roles. The Original Avengers seemed more a mixture of "clay and iron" to me. Thor and Hulk and the potential "who's the strongest?" rivalry. There should also be more than one female on the team. And so, to my choices for members then...

Members:

Falcon
Goliath/Bill Foster, with wife Claire in the loop.
Brother Voodoo
Photon
Sunspot
White Tiger/Angela Del Toro
**** **** **** **** ****
Black Panther and Storm will be the two prominent members who will provide the deep pockets and other stuff I mentioned earlier. I also believe that Bill Foster should become more well-to-do as well so that he would also be able to kick in financially.

And Patriot/Eli Bradley should get in the mix somehow, somewhere.

Here are my answers:

1. Team Name:  BLACK  (short for Black Ops, Black Avengers, Black Listed, etc...)
2. 10 team members
3. Team members:

A. Falcon  --Team Leader. The return of snap wilson.
B. Josiah X   (Cap. America) --Comes out of hiding because of the Civil War events
C. Goliath     (Yellow Jacket)  --Every team needs a BIG MAN
D. Brother VooDoo   (Scarlet Witch)  --Witches...err...Warlocks need love, too! Plus his character needs growth
E. Cecilia Reyes -- I love this character and I haven't seen her since REVOLUTION.  I like her shield abilities. Team does, too!
F. Triathalon  (Quiksilver)  -- He's...uhm... well... he knew who Isiah Bradley was. And he's fast.  3 times fast!
G. Silverclaw  -- Animal shape-shifters rock... and we need another female on the team.
H. War Machine  (Iron Man)  --I need an Iron man type.  In my vision, T'challa invests in Rhodey's company, but Rhodey doesn't care much for handouts... but his company is back in operation and War Machine is back on the block.I. Luke Cage  (Hulk)  -- He's here to stick it to the man so his daughter won't ever have to worry about cape killers spyin' on her.

BONUS: Yes, I want my team to have a semblance of the origin Avengers.  See Parenthesis.

Unless there are others who would like to participate, it is time for us to vote on our official team name, the actual number of members and which members will make the team.

While we are deciding that, our next mission is to figure out WHERE our teams base of operations will be.

PS: if you'd like to defend your member choices, please feel free to do so.
***************************

As of 11pm on Thursday, August 10th, here are the members who have made the team:

Photon
Falcon
Brother Voodoo
Goliath
Cage

(BP & Storm both received 2 votes, but I think most of you would like them to be reservist)

TEAM NAMES
BLACK
ONXY
Power Force
Down South Avengers

Vote for the team name that you don't like.

My vote is for Down South Avengers.

# of Members
7, 10, 7, 10 (including reservists) and 6.

Obviously the vote comes down to 7 and 10.

Let's Vote.

Me, I like what Sin said about a small group of people.  7 was my original thought but I chose 10 because there are some characters that I really want to use...like the pacifist Cecilia Reyes. 

10 IS a lot, so i guess I'll settle with 7 team members.

You can't mean this MM. "Snap Wilson"?

That's a disaster waiting to happen isn't it?   :)

Anyway, I'm ready to cast my votes. My votes are subject to change at any moment because I'm just fickle that way  :)

Team Name: BLACK.  I like the "Blacklisted" angle.

# of Members: 7 with 2 reserves.

Team Members:

1) Falcon
2) Photon
3) Brother Voodoo
4) Silverclaw
5) White Tiger/Angela Del Toro
6) Goliath/Bill Foster with his wife Claire Temple involved somehow.
7) Sunspot (as the muscle of the team)

Black Panther and Storm (reserve members)

And I keep forgetting. Patriot should be involved with the group in some capacity.

Another vote for BLACK?
hmm...

1. Do we all agree on BLACK as the team name?  If not, what is your choice?
2. Sin, you're fickle...you came up with ANother team?
3. We still need a base of operations.

4. ATTENTION AUDIENCE.  YOU HAVE UNTIL SATURDAY AFTERNOON TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS ENDEAVOR.  IF YOU MISS THE DEADLINE, THEN YOU CAN ONLY COMMENT ON THE TEAM THAT WE HAVE CREATED AND THE STORYLINES THAT WE WRITE.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.
