We all know that there’s a lot of Superhero Super Teams formed in the whole comic universe, but ever wonder which one is arguably the strongest? Better? The answer to that is no, no one is better than the rest of them, there all doing the same thing over and over again, they are just simply saving the world from terror , but it is up to you to rank them as your own.

Superhero Teams have been an incredibly large part of the superhero genre. Since of the inception of the first superhero team, The Justice League of America, comic fans have loved the interaction of their favorite heroes fighting evil. The following list based on fans pick for the top ten superhero teams. Each of the groups below takes into account the different incarnations and variations of those said teams, such as the Ultimate line of comics.

Here is a list of the TOP 10 superhero teams that was voted by fans in my opinion
1 – X-MEN

The X-Men came about at a time of great strife and have long mirrored many of society’s issues about fearing those that are different then the rest of us. The X-Men take the top of the list due to many reasons. They have long been one of the most popular comics in history and have spawned a mountain of, “X-Titles.” Multiple cartoons, TV series, and now movies have made The X-Men a juggernaut in the world of comics.
2 –Justice League of America (JLA)

The Justice League of America is comprised of the top superheroes of the DC universe. With a roster full of A-list powerhouses, the JLA is arguably the toughest superhero team in existence. The JLA has been a huge part of the DC universe and has been widely popular since its inception.
3 – Fantastic Four

The Fantastic Four is the first of the superhero teams to bring about a real humanness to the genre. With real world problems surfacing in the comic, this first, “family” of superheroes has been an incredible force in comics. Movies, cartoons, and more make the FF not number four, but three.
4 – Avengers

The Avengers assemble in position number four. There have been many different incarnations of the Avengers, such as the West Coast and Great Lakes avengers. With the latest comics The Ultimates and the New Avengers, The Avengers have rocketed to new heights. A movie is in the works based on The Ultimates and when it does, The Avengers will be knocking on the doors of numbers one through three.
5 – Teen Titans

The Teen Titans have had a rocky past, but presently, they are enjoying great success. A hugely popular cartoon has made the Teen Titans a smash hit with younger audiences and the comic has had an impressive run on the charts and with comic book fans.

6 – Guardians of The Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy has gone through a number of changes and is one of the most amazing teams of dysfunctional characters in comics. The current series lead by Star Lord is an amazing team with foul mouthed Rocket Raccoon, kind Groot, feared assasin Gamora and deadly Drax. Guardians of the galaxy has been part of some of the most popular cosmic adventures and has a cult following among Marvel fans.

7 – Justice Society of America (JSA)

The Justice Society of America has recently seen a rebirth into the world of comics. With a group of superheroes thought of as has beens and second stringers, the JSA have quickly shown that it has what it takes in the world of comics. We can also thank the JSA for being the first superhero team comic book. The success that JSA had early on spurred on the other comic companies to follow suit. Thanks JSA.
8 –  League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen broke the boundaries of what is a “superhero team.” Comprised of some of the most popular characters in literature. The series was brought to us by superstar writer Alan Moore. Although they haven’t been around a long time and the book has been plagued with issues between Moore and DC, it is still a great comic book team.
9 –  The Defenders
Defenders_(Earth-12131)_001
The power cosmic, magic, brute strength and more make up this team equivalent to the superhero odd couple. The Defenders have a great history behind them and the latest incarnation of this superhero team has been widely accepted by fans. The Defenders are a rising star in the world of superhero teams.
10 – The Authority
79048-53964-the-new-authority
The Authority are one of the few superhero teams not from the big two, (Marvel and DC) but Wildstorm Publishing company, to make it onto the list. Although their might may have waned in recent years, The Authority is still ranked high on the list for how it has pushed the boundaries of comic books. The Authority is ultra violent, politically charged, and boasted the first openly gay couple. These items make The Authority controversial, talked about, and one of the top superhero teams of all time.

Marvel Cinematic Universe on two parallel storylines


yg28bzpz

MCU’s Phase 1 introduced the major and key players from Marvel Universe on Screen set of events that brought them together by the time Avengers ended.
A common assumption is that phase 2 will follow events from ‘The Avengers’. But somehow from the set of releases it sounds like from here storyline is going to be split in two parts and that will build plot towards Avengers 3 as well.

First storyline continues the from first Avengers movie that we already know it and will consist of the following films;
The Avengers /
Iron Man 3 /
Captain America: The Winter Soldier /
The Avengers: Age of Ultron /
Ant-Man

This storyline is based on Earth, led by Science related events, will feature S.H.I.E.L.D and ultimately lead to the Ultron threat in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’

The main characters are Tony Stark, Captain America, Black Widow, Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D.

Although it is released after ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, I think the Ant-Man film may be part of this storyline, especially if the 1960/70’s setting is retained;

*********************

I will call Storyline 2 the Marvel Cosmic Universe, and it will consist of the following films;

The Avengers /
Thor: The Dark World /
Guardians of the Galaxy /
Dr Strange /
(Thor 3?)
(As yet unknown films; Ms Marvel, Nova etc?)
The Avengers 3

This storyline will be set in space and/or on different worlds, expanding the cosmic side of the Universe. It will introduce lots of new concepts, technologies and species and ultimately lead to ‘The Avengers 3’. I assume Avengers 3 will have Thanos as the main villain, and perhaps be a version of The Infinity Gauntlet comic.

The main characters will be Thor, Dr. Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, with spin off aliens likely to be introduced.

*********************

So, in summary;

Phase 1 – introduce new characters, show shared universe, lead to Avengers
Phase 2 – Finish Iron Man’s story arc, continue Thor and Cap’s arc, introduce new characters, lead to Avengers 2 and 3.
Phase 3 – Finish Thor and Cap’s arc, introduce new characters, lead to Avengers 3.

Marvel Studios is doing a marvelous job with it characters and recent plots and this is a brilliant way not to make things monotonous for audience. Lets see what is in the store.
