    Bleh. Making this pick sucks. There are like 6 or 7 possible choices here, and all of them would be great. And no matter who I pick, I'm leaving some severe badasses for the rest of you snatch up. No way around it, so might as well stop sweating it and just pick.

    With that in mind, a lot can happen in the next 30 picks, so flexibility at this point is key. And so...

    Spawn going first. Definitely respect it, I had him 2nd on my board ::goes to see if the person he had first hasn't been removed for being too powerful::

    Yup, Jean/Phoenix is not there. Very good move. She's definitely leaving in my draft next time.

    Jean Phoenix wasn't in last draft either.

    Oh, and I'm glad Surfer didn't go first overall again

    And I've got a very short list of guesses on who BaSSiL takes #2

    Oh, I thought about it. Make no mistake. Of the seven picks I heavily considered, he was the fourth one I eliminated. Just not quite what I was looking for in my top three.

    Surfer's not all that to me. Well, he is all that, but not like, ALL THAT. I have him 11 on my list currently, but that's a list that includes Jean/Phoenix (I thought she was in the last one, musta been Rachel and I misread), Dr. Strange and demons like Mephisto and Shuma-Gorath so...

    Sorry i want to rant... Integral won't let me add Alfred to the list! (yes Batman's buttler)do any of you see a reason why i cannot have him on my team? I truely believe he has a chance against some if he has prep time :( He has acess to everything in the Batcave! If he is facing Batman, Nightwing, or Robin he can just poison their dinner. If he is fighting superman he can "borrow" Batman's kryptonite ring. Batman has gadgets against all the members of the Justice Leauge. Alfred has acess to them all! Doesn't he fill the requirements for a character?

    Oh well sry for the disturbance just needed to vent frustration

    And I should get Jarvis, Iron Man's butlar. He's got access to tony's plasma cannons and stuff. he'd own everyone! With prep that is.

    After watching the animated series, I believe the Clock King deserves to be in there. The first time they met he beat Batman. The second time, batman got lucky. :p

    Oh and as to break downs, I'll be doing them when I have the time. that may be every time (unlikely) that may be every 3 picks or that might be only once or twice. I'll be commenting of course. Especially to whoever gets heroes/villians that I've had in the past. Oh and if you don't like what I say, that's fine, just tell me why and perhaps I'll reconsider. I'm completely fallible as we all know. ;)

    **sigh**

    Ah, forget it. I had a long post about wanting flexibility. But I'll just go with my plan I began forming midway through last draft and hope for the best. Would've preferred a mid-pack draft position though. Early/Late/Early is too difficult to decide.

    I guess I shouldn't have hoped he'd fall to 13. Oh well.

    Well, I thought about the Surfer, but I didn't really want him. But he would've allowed flexibility on being either a villain or hero team. And he recently got an upgrade in his Annihilation book #3. He became a personal Herald to Galactus again, even with Stardust as the current Herald. I think he's now like a powerful bodyguard to Galactus. He totally took out the fleet from the Annihilation wave that was being sent to capture Galactus. And he did it like it was nothing.

    I also considered Superman, seeing as he gets more and more respect each passing draft it seems. And he'd be good for starting a hero team this draft, I'd think.

    Ah, and there goes my #2 man. In the end, I chose Spawn over him because of the flexibility thing and a desire to not be repetitive. :p

    You know, as of this moment, I think you and I have the two best teams in the draft, BaSSiL.

    EDIT:

    And he recently got an upgrade in his Annihliation book #3.

    Hmmm, interesting. Not to sound like a fuddy-duddy, but I'm not sure that should be taken into account. Allowing a significant power increase for a character that's already at least top five in the draft seems a tad unbalancing. Sounds a bit like a Kyle Rayner/Ion situation, only worse, since it's the Surfer.

    That was one of three I had you pegged for, BaSsiL. Although, I was pretty sure it would be X-Man

    Yeah. It was just worth noting. As I said, what he did just seconds after being unleashed from getting that upgrade, he'd probably be a tad too powerful for the draft.

    Oh? May I ask that you tell me who the other two were via PM?
