    Bleacherreport.com did a post the other day where they made a football team out of Superheroes.... I thought it was a poor effort.

    As a way to spend some offseason (for Rockets and Texans) time, I thought that we here on the board could do a better job.

    I was thinking we could put together two teams, offense and defense one for the good guys and one for the doers of evil.

    Make a case for who you think should be on the team at a position and we'll see what kind of team we can come up with. Its got to be better than a team with Batman and the Punisher and OLB, those guys aren't even superpowered, they'd get killed without being able to use weapons or gadgetry.

    Oh yeah that reminds me, the players can't use any non-innate skills or use skills to cause harm to an opponent, otherwise they can use their powers. E.G Deadpool couldn't use his sword, Wolverine can't claw an opponent to death but could to help him hold his position by digging into the ground, Iceman could freeze an opponents feet in place or the ball but coulnd't aim to injure an opponent.

    Mods: I had no idea where to put this, it is sport and it is football but it isn't NFL..... so move it where it belongs.

    The first guy I think absolutely must be on the Villans team at DT is the Blob.

    The Blob could create a mono-directional gravity field extending five feet from his center of balance, rendering himself virtually immovable as long as he was in contact with the ground. His body has superhuman strength and durability; the fat tissues could absorb the impact of bullets, cannonballs, and even missiles. Unable to feel pain, the Blob’s skin could not be punctured, lacerated, frostbitten, or ravaged by disease due to its great elasticity and highly accelerated cell replacement rate.

    The Dude would be an immovable object that the offense would have to account for and game plan around... and he is 510lbs!

    Hero - Speedy Gonzalez!

    He's tiny and he's a huge underdog! But the fans would love him because of his speed! He can be a change of pace, 3rd down back!

    Hopefully The Flash can catch because he would make a great wide receiver for the Hero team. But as we have learned, track stars do not always make good football players, ie: Renaldo Nehemiah.

    And by the way the owner of the Villain team would of course be Bud Adams.

    I think Superman is your prototype Franchise QB.

    The Hulk can play virtually every position. I can't decide which one bets fits the teams needs and his strengths. LT? MLB? DT?

    Spiderman should be a DB. If the supervillains throw the ball to the guy he's covering, he would stop them, and if he couldn't, he could always web their hands down so he can get an easy pick.

    Villain RB would be "The Juggernaut".

    Of course a mutant who cannot be stopped after gaining any momentum would be an asset almost anywhere on a football team.

    I think Batman's lack of superpowers limits his onfield impact.

    I had him tagged as an defensive co-ordinator type..... he has the mind for scheming and he has that ruthless edge that a defense needs.

    That would seem like an obvious slot.... the fact he was pretty much impervious makes him appeal as a lead blocking FB too.

    Mr. Fantastic would be a great wideout/cornerback. No matter where the ball is thrown, he could stretch his arms and catch the rock from anywhere on the field.

    I counter your Juggernaut FB with Hulk at NT and Thor at MLB.
