Fantasy Comic League: October 2017 – Preview

The past and present collide as Marvel’s Legacy banner begins in October! The two flagship X-Men teams take center stage. Kitty Pryde leads the Gold team and Marvel Girl leads her Blue team into the Mojoverse in a weekly crossover event. The Avengers also team up with the heroes of the younger generation. The Champions must work with the heroes who they left after the events of Civil War II.  Sam Wilson still leads the elder statesmen, but he returns to his old role as the Falcon. After being misled by his hero, Deadpool looks to head back down a dark path. Eddie Brock leads the venomized heroes against the poisons in the Venomverse conclusion. Ghost Rider and Blade storm into the Fantasy Comic League tier charts as their new series, Spirits of Vengeance, kicks off. Ruling update! The Inhumans have finally been recognized as their own team designation so characters such as Moon Girl and Ms. Marvel have been given the extra affiliation!

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).
