Fantasy Comic League: September 2017 – Preview

If you loved the multiversal adventure starring more Spider-heroes than you could shoot a web at, but felt it could have used more symbiotes, then you’re in luck the month of September! After recently reclaiming the Venom symbiote, Eddie Brock is transported to a planet full of Venomized heroes from different universes as Venomverse kicks off. Eddie leads the lethal protectors against a new mysterious species threatening the symbiotes. Apart from that mini-event, more weekly team-ups are scheduled for Marvel’s legacy heroes. “Generations” continues to roll with Iron Man and Ironheart, the Captain Marvels and Captain Americas, and the Ms. Marvels. Peter Parker and Miles Morales also have two team-up stories thanks to Spider-Men II and “Generations,” but how will Miles interact with a Peter Parker more his age? When the “Generations” one offs come to a close, “Marvel Legacy,” the company’s new banner initiative, begins with a look at some new heroes, as well as some revitalized characters. Secret Empire may have ended in August, but no good Marvel event is ever truly over until its Omega issue drops, and Empire is no different. All those plus your typical double-shipping X-Men books and a new Runaways series (a team I did not feel inclined to include in the tier charts, sorry!).

Best of luck to all divisions of the Fantasy Comic League: #Midtown, #Multiverse, #Wakanda and our new division, #Knowhere. 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).
