AFCBL: Final March Scores, Weeks 5-8

Cyclops and Iceman failed me in the first month of the league, so I dropped my two X-Men in favor of two X-Women. Shaun dropped an X-Woman himself as well as one of his personal favorites. In place of Cyclops and Iceman, I drafted Storm (powers: Lightning, Wind, Blizzard) and Kitty Pryde (Short Circuit, Team Phase, Stealth Attack); and in place of Pyslocke and Hawkeye, Shaun picked up Thor (Lightning, Hammer Throw, Durability) and Black Widow (Acrobatic KO, Widow’s Bite, Marksmen). I also adjusted Captain America’s power set from Shield Ricochet to Shield Bash. Let’s see how the new teams fared over the month of March.

Selfish Avengers (2-0): 38
The Real Uncanny Avengers (0-2): 37

Week Eight (March 26, 2014):
March ends on a high-note for both sides. I approach 20 points in the final week but Shaun manages to hang on and eek out the victory by one point. But really, that just means the Amazing Spider-Man is coming my way for the month of April and the rest of the year so I think I’m the real winner.
