Fantasy Comic League: May 2017 – Preview

The Guardians of the Galaxy are returning to space and they are also returning to the top-tier of the Fantasy Comic League! Not only do the cosmic heroes have a new movie debuting in May, they have an all-new comic series and a weekly miniseries written by Jim Starlin, cosmic, comic writer extraordinaire! Each Guardian (well, besides Drax) is starring in their own personal series as well, and will most likely continue to support Captain Marvel and other space faring heroes in the Secret Empire event! Captain America Steve Rogers looks to make an impact in the comics as his traitorous actions continue to send shock waves around the Marvel Universe. Logan and the other X-Men continue their Resurrection, while Spider-Man and Deadpool remain reliable heroes.

Best of luck to all divisions of the Fantasy Comic League: #Midtown, #Wakanda and our new division, #Multiverse. Power rulings and definitions have been revised based on participants’ review in the previous month. Please see the attached Power Summary file for further power clarifications. Please follow along with our #FantasyComicLeague tweets on our Twitter for official power scoring and discussions. Seasons run for four months, stay tuned for your chance to join the official league and win a trade paperback of your choice!

These appearance estimates, based on comic solicitations and cover artwork provided by the Marvel Database wiki, are meant as a guideline and not an indication of a specific draft order. Character names, team designations and power sets conform to the most current information provided by the Database. Power designations are simplified for easier classification and choice, providing the majority of the heroes with 9 to 11 eligible powers from which to choose. As a reminder, you may only have one hero per team designation on your roster and are allowed to select three powers from the heroes’ power set. Powers in (parenthesis) are a subset of the overall ability and can be selected as well as the generic use of that power. For example, Deadpool can be drafted as any of his four team classifications and can use Weapons, Blades and Guns as his three powers (Blades and Guns being a subset of the overall Weapons skill).
