In an upcoming story line in my game I'm planning to steal a bit from Marvel's Dark Avengers and do a Dark Justice League.. Who are some good choices to replace the League? People that can copy their power, possibly their look. I'm mostly thinking of the big 7.. Here's some of the initials I'm thinking of using:
Superman - General Zod
Batman - Lots of choices, but Deathstroke is my top pick right now
Aquaman - ?? Ocean Master maybe
Wonder Woman - Ursa seems the obvious choice if using Zod. Maxima, Black Mary, and Knockout are other ideas
The Flash - Zoom (duh)
Martian Manhunter - Random White Martian?? not sure apart from that
Green Lantern - Sinestro is an obvious choice, though I think Dr. Light would be good too
Zod seems like he might be hard to work in since he's so arrogant he might not want to be an "impersonator", but if my big reveal is "Kneel before Superman!" I think that could have a fun effect on my players
Obviously PL is an issue.. The current group is 5 PL 12 characters, so obviously just with what I have above we're looking at some characters that'd be pretty tough to beat on their own, much less as a team.
Anyway, what are your thoughts? Or possibly even other JLAers that I could swap out.. Like dumping Martian Manhunter for Cyborg and finding him a replacement or similar things.. I'm trying to avoid doing cheap stuff like just having Circe on the team and have her just put an illusion on everyone..
EDIT: I guess I should mention, I'm not looking for something like an alternate world Justice League.. nothing like the Crime Syndicate or other similar concepts.. I'd like to take villains from the normal DCU and make them into impersonators of their enemies
