The 6 Best Premiere Superhero Teams (That Aren’t the Avengers or the Justice League)
Posted by Sean Ian Mills
The Avengers and the Justice League represent the best of the best of their superhero universes. They are the heroes on the front lines of the fight against evil, drawing together their champion heroes and spear-heading their entire caped communities. So, of course, they’ve become shorthand for superhero teams from other universes as well.
Marvel and DC are not the only publishers in the superhero business. But just like we’ve got both Green Arrow and Hawkeye and both Superman and the Sentry, sometimes ideas and characters get copied across publishers. The same is true for superhero teams. Marvel has the Avengers, DC has the Justice League…but who does everybody else have?
Just for the fun of it, and because I love comics, I decided to look around and pick out the best Avengers/JLA analogues!
