Comic Character Football

I was asked to come up with a full 11 offense and defense football team comprised of comic book heroes and villains. I guess if I do it here, I can give some proper explanation for why each individual is where they are. I'm running the offense with a fullback, tight end, and two wide receivers... I'm running a 3-4 defense.


Offense:

Quarterback - Bullseye. I can't think of anyone more accurate in comics than Bullseye. Deathstroke, Deadshot and Deadpool would have made a little sense, but Bullseye is just the guy for the job!

Running Back - Green Lantern. Here's a guy with heart and no fear, knows how to take his time and when to attack...

Fullback - The Juggernaut. I can't think of anyone better suited than the unstoppable force to clear a lane for the RB.

LT - Thing. He's a rock, but he has some agility so he can slide and protect the blindside.

LG - Bizarro. LG has to be a guy who can maul people, and I can't think of many better suited than Kal-el's imperfect clone.

C - Hulk. There are a lot of characters who could fit the role of the center, but when you want someone to give you that push, Hulk is your choice.

RG - Thanos. Gotta put a real monster in at guard on the to help destroy the edge on the run.

RT - Bane. He's the best comic character to attack on the run and compliment The Juggernaut to lead the running back.

TE - Iron Man. The strength of the suit and the ability to provide a safety blanket for the QB makes Iron Man the best choice.

WR1 - Flash. You need some speed at WR and you might as well get the fastest out there.

WR2 - Captain America. Someone who plays with some finesse but also not afraid to get chippy and fight for extra yards.



Defense:

LE - Thor. You need muscle at the position and someone who can eat up some blockers. Thor gives you strength and size to help push the line of scrimmage backwards.

NT - Darkseid. The most destructive force in all of comics has no better place to fit than right at the most important position on the defense.

RE - Beast. You aren't going to find anyone better suited than Thor except for Beast, to help maul the O-Line and help free up the LB's.

LOLB - Wolverine. Who better to rush from the outside and chase down the QB than Logan?

ILB1 - Sinestro. He's a man who knows what courage AND fear can both accomplish. With HIS courage and ability to sense fear, Sinestro is the ideal middleman for the defense.

ILB2 - Luke Cage. There needs to be someone with heart and grit to help run the defense and clog up the holes. Luke Cage is willing to take on anyone that steps in his path, making him an easy selection at ILB.

ROLB - Atrocitus. This is an unstoppable force willing to take out ANYONE in his path to accomplish his goal to destroy.

LCB - Scarecrow. You need the WR to fear coming onto your island and the QB needs to fear throwing to your island.

FS - Superman. Nobody better to serve as the last line of defense than Kal-el.

SS - Batman. You need someone who can play the box, hit, and play with smarts.

RCB - Spiderman. There's no way you get torched down the field, so you put someone who can adjust to subtle movements in to contest the speedy receivers.

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
