Fantasy Comic League: June 2017 – Preview

As if Peter Parker did not have enough of an advantage in the Fantasy Comic League, now Chip Zdarsky is reviving the Spectacular Spider-Man title! Peter and Old Man Logan are the top tier heroes for the month of June, although Steve Rogers will surely be making his presence felt as Secret Empire continues to churn. After a dominant month of May, the Guardians of the Galaxy take a breather in June, but Rocket and Groot are still poised for a strong month. The focus shifts from cosmic characters to street level heroes as the Netflix Defenders make their team up official in the comics. The Champions, plus some of their other youthful friends, such as Ironheart and Wasp, remain in the thick of things as well.

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).
