Fantasy Comic League: August 2017 – Preview

This August, Marvel is embracing their legacy characters with the start of Generations! Each week features a team-up of classic characters and their current counterparts. Starting things off is Bruce Banner and Amadeus Cho, followed next by the older and younger Jean Grey. The Wolverines take a stab at teaming up in the third week, followed by a younger version of Odinson and the current Thunder God, Jane Foster. Ending the month are two characters who are used to working together, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. The “Weapons of Mutant Destruction” event comes to an end while Edge of Venomverse (which still does not count as a mainstream continuity comic) continues on with a return to the “Old Man Logan” story line. Secret Empire races to its conclusion after a potentially fatal turn of events for one of the main characters. How will the clash of the Captain Americas end? Two Spider-Men continue their team up, but how will the 616 Miles Morales factor into their adventure?

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).
