    It's like going through the drive through with someone who doesn't know what they want, so they get a whole bunch of stuff, but then decide they don't want half of it, then they give the food back because something wasn't right, and it turns out they didn't bring their wallet anyway.


    It is your turn. Pick.

    I didn't ban you from PMing picks. I banned you from PMing 100 sets of picks per round of drafting. If you can't do one without the other, than you've banned yourself.

    That's absurd. How can I be expected to manage that?

    Just some short breakdowns for the first 4 picks.


    1. EmpireForever - Spawn (Hellspawn), Phoenix (Rachel Summers), Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), Nimrod

    I've done a lot of GL reading lately and have thoroughly enjoyed the GL Corps series so I love Rayner. Even though is no longer ion, he's still the most creative GL, which in this draft certainly matters. Of course having Spawn will get you loads of wins. I'm not quite sure he's the best 1st rounder though, but with this draft, that changes all the time. Phoenix is always good and Nimrod is just great for a tank character, very hard to take him down. The only thing that concerns me is how well this group meshes as a team. But you've certainly got most of your bases covered, I'll be interested to see how the rest of your picks fit in.

    Grade at this point: A-


    2. MandaloreYak- Onslaught (First Form Only), Cassandra Nova Xavier, Juggernaut, Magneto

    Taking a page out of my book with the Juggernaut and Magneto? ;) Those two will get you plenty of great wins and with Magneto you have some great leadership and strategy. Though I have to be honest with Onslaught, I'm not sure you need Cassandra or Magneto. It seems like you could have used more variety, but you still have plenty of time to make up for that.

    Grade: B+

    3. BartSimpson-SithLord-Silver Surfer, Nova (Annihilation Version), Mr. Fantastic, Captain Marvel

    This seems vaguely familiar. Haven't you had the surfer before? Anyway great picks all around. A real nice team you have and powerful guys as well. Reed going third is about right for him compared to the past when he's been first round. You have the smartest guy on the planet and you have the power cosmos. And you have a Shazam. Really interested to see who else will join this team

    Grade: A

    4. Zizz-Thor, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Orion, Captain Atom

    Thor is always good, but at this point, there were still some other steals you could have made. Jordan's a great pick as he is indeed the greatest GL ever and certainly has the strongest willpower. Orion as pick 3 though...I think you could have done better. Captain Atom is a nice addition and overall this team has great potential

    Grade: B+

    5. Axle-Starweilder-X-Man, The Hulk (Green Scar Version), Martian Manhunter, Dr. Doom

    I like this team. Mostly because they can all be greyish which will allow them to work fairly well. Very surprised Doom didn't go til Round 4 though. X-Man is a powerhouse, Hulk is a tank and MM takes care of several needs. Just hope he doesn't hit the human torch. Doom though sticks out a bit too much now. Perhaps I'll change my mind once you've added others.

    Grade: B

    6. -Ace- Mr. Majestic, Ion (Sodam Yat), Superman, Cable

    I don't believe Majestic is a 1st round pick unless it's the very bottom of the first round and there are 12-16 GMs. There were better choices out there. Sodam Yat could be great, but right now the only thing going for him is he survived a beating from Superman Prime. I don't believe we've seen any great feats from him yet. Superman really doesn't get a lot of respect in this draft because there are others that are better than him, but he's still a good pick. Cable is fantastic and will definitely get you some wins.

    Grade: B-

    7. Shadow_of_Durron- Despero, Darkseid, Doomsday, Loki

    So I'm just going to ask, why didn't you pick Doom? You and Yak are the only 2 real villian teams so you could have snagged him over Loki. Slap some prep on Doom and you're golden. Not that Loki is bad, just surprised with a 3 D's, you didn't go for the obvious Doom. Other than that, loads of evil, loads of power, all very hard to beat.

    Grade: A

    8. MarcusP2- Beta Ray Bill, Dr. Fate, Professor X, Sentinel (Alan Scott)

    Nice group you got here. Bill is always nice. Fate, with Strange gone, is the best magic character around so fantastic snag with him and another great snag with Xavier. Having a GL also helps. This is a team that could go far depending on who the other picks are or could be hitting teams a lot if the other

    Zizz, I'm lowering your grade to a C+ for those images. You could easily have found one image of grey jeans. No need for 2.[face_shame_on_you]

    Spawn has been voted over Surfer on more than one occasion. I think that precedence puts him at the top. Perhaps Onslaught is better, but I don't really go for villain squads, and I could seriously argue that one hardly ever going Onslaught's way, but there's really no one better. Not since Strange got the axe, anyway.

    Come on, Bart, stop being a good student.

    Well, Minchyminch, I didn't pick Doom over Loki because he was going to be my 5th pick. Loki has, with his own straight-up power (minimal prep to no prep whatsoever) stood toe-to-toe with the likes of the Surfer, Thor, entire Avenger rosters, etc, etc. So has Doom, but pretty much always with prep. And what's to say that Loki's not gonna be one of my preps, hmmm? He is, without the slightest of doubts, more powerful than Doom straight-up (I'd argue right up there with Fate magic-wise), and while he's not quite as smart, it's not like that isn't close, either.

    If I may ask a question: Why do we have twice as many picks, and only one and one half as many preps?
  20. Zizz Jedi Master

    Member Since:

    Because we don't have twice as many picks.

    We don't have twice as many picks.



    Oh, right, what I meant to say is the ratio was one prep to every four starts, now it's...one prep to every four starts. I guess I forgot to actually calculate it as starts instead of picks. I was thinking three out of sixteen instead of three out of twelve.

    oh, right.
    i thought he meant, like starters.
    you know, starting five.
    first string.

    so, i guess i was right....?

    WOW. Yeah ummm those are the same thing...

    Except you aren't starting five here. I don't know if you were thinking that or not, just thought I'd clear it up.
