Sometimes, I get bored. That’s really my only excuse. And because I get bored, I like to think about silly things, most of which deal with semi-obscure super-types from around the various worlds. For some reason, last night’s thought process involved assembling my own five-color Super Sentai-inspired team, featuring:
- Commander Montgomery Scott (Red)
- River Tam (Blue)
- The Beak (Yellow)
- She-Hulk (Green)
- Pleather bikini Saturn Girl (Pink)
Because I am a giving soul, I started to wonder how many ridiculously innovative and cool variations might occur if other people were playing along with me (keeping in mind that we’re talking about a TEAM here, so having Superman be your blue and do all the work isn’t any fun) which begs a query…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) had two rules: First, no actual Super Sentai/Power Rangers allowed, and the “standard” color scheme rules – Red, Yellow, Blue, Green or Black, and Pink, no other substitutions allowed, otherwise things get inordinately complex, asking: What five characters from anywhere in pop-culture would you choose for the ultimate team?
