Lineup Card: When I asked the computer to automatically set up the lineups, Hawkgirl and Hawkman were platooned in right field.
Aquaman. His ability to control Mike Trout would be invaluable.
Legion of Super-Heroes would've been fun...especially the pre-Crisis version with Superboy, Supergirl, Mon-El all being the Superman level player plus Ultra Boy (one power at a time but can have any of them) and maybe Star Boy depending on time frame (at one time had Superman level power before being dropped to just being able to make things super-heavy which would be useful to stop the other teams running game). Light Lass could be great fun as she could make the ball so light it would always float out of the strike zone. Invisible Kid would be great at stealing bases as no one would know until he was on the base. Karate Kid has the reflexes, Princess Projectra could mess up the umps if she was in a cheating mood, and Matter Eater Lad could make the other team forfeit due to lack of bats/gloves/field/etc.
Beast is a Miguel Cabrera-type defender at third base, which is especially troublesome in a league in which so many fielders move at the speed of sound.
And of course, Daredevil would be the umpire.
Beast has "Amazing" Agility, equivalent to Spider-Man
Spider-Man would be the greatest fielder ever.
I'm also concerned about Alan Scott (the original Green Lantern) because his powers don't work on wood. As a batter, he's just a regular mortal. That's no good.
Invisible Woman would be a fantastic pitcher, if we can figure out someway for the ump to call balls and strikes.
How the #### do you not pitch Superman, if you're DC?
One day Aquaman will have his revenge on all those who laughed...
Wolverine’s ability to regenerate his UCL makes him the necessary workhorse of a pitching staff that features a paraplegic as its ace.
I'll take nine characters from Preacher. Pretty good team in itself, including vampires, angels, the Saint of Killers, and the Lord Almighty. Then to clinch a game, all Jesse Custer has to do is that red-eye trick and say DROP THE ####ING BAT. NOW.
Is Batman allowed to wear his utility belt while playing? I see all kinds of ball-scuffing shenanigans possible. Or is Batman so straight and true that he would never succumb to the temptation to cheat?
Frank Miller had Batman originally kill the Joker in "The Dark Knight Returns" before DC put the kibosh on it. That's why we got that weird (and anatomically impossible) "with a devil's strength... he twists..." scene.
I mean, if it's my team, I'm getting Swamp Thing as Head Groundskeeper.
I'm guessing captain america, superman could also use it, everyone else would need an adamantium bat.
The manufacturing process would be tricky to master, but you could make it out of whatever's in this.
Captain America makes Jose Canseco look like a steroid teetotaler.
Modok -- just look at his head!
RE: comment 50 - The ability to pick up Mjolnir has nothing to do with the strength of the person or the weight of the hammer (The Hulk cannot pick it up). The only people who can use Mjolnir are squeaky-clean good guys who are "worthy." I agree with cardsfanboy that Captain America, who has virtually no physical strength compared to Thor, could pick Mjolnir up and use it.
It's a fun fantasy... But it just doesn't stand up to any claim of reality.
If I remember right, Captain America's shield is made of "vibranium," which is the metal whose ore only exists in Wakanda, the African country that T'Challa the Black Panther rules. Vibranium absorbs vibrations; adamantium is just unbreakable. A vibranium bat vs. a Superman fastball would be fun to watch.
This shield is composed of a unique alloy of Vibranium, Adamantium, and an unknown third component. It is virtually indestructible.
Oh, and yes, Batman counts as a superhero, because he doesn't kill, no matter how vile the villain or desperate the situation. I think, although it's been a while since I looked this up, that Batman, for a few early issues in 1939-40, did carry a gun. But writer Bill Finger came up with the idea that Batman doesn't kill no matter what the circumstances, and that, as much as anything else, is what made the character such an icon. Cheat? Sure. Kill? No. - Brock Hanke
I also harbor grave doubts about The Leader.
And yeah. Captain America is a mutant. A mutant by injection instead of birth, but nonetheless a mutant. I actually have a story pitch for Marvel based on that. The X-Men are currently fractured into many groups with diverging ideals. Who would Cap join up with and why?
