LEAGUES OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN

Jim Cobb, the King of the Preppers (as I call him), did something neat yesterday, his “Leagues of Extraordinary Gentlemen” from some of the eras he’s been alive…

Jim said:

“I’ve always liked the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen concept, this idea of taking different characters from various fiction works and tossing them together. I’m far from being the first to do this, but wanted to have some fun so I created my own teams based on rough timeframes. I admittedly played fast and loose with some of these, but that’s some of the fun. In large part, I went with when the character debuted, not when the story/film was set.

I realize that few of you will likely know every single character listed. There’s at least one of them that I’d be shocked more than maybe three of you recognize, LOL. I’d encourage you to let Google or the search engine of your choice be your guide 😉”

I loved Jim’s choices! 

Now, he didn’t make his lists public… but I will! And I’m adding their antagonist and mission! Like Jim, I’m not telling you what property the character comes from. You figure it out… the Library of Alexandria is at your finger tips.

Don’t post your lists below, share this blog post and make your list on the sharing post.

I went back to the 1960s to start, for a multiversal, time travel adventure from the written page and silver screen with:

THE THREAT?  Daleks who have hijacked the Doctor’s Tardis

THE TEAM:

HG Wells (and his Time Machine)

Captain Jerry Cornelius

Cpt. Keith Mallory

Dr. Zira

Commander James Bond

Yojimbo

1970s is Satanic Panic and a whole bunch of political horror!

THE THREAT? Barlow and his new ghoul, Michael Myers, infiltrate Washington DC!

THE TEAM:

Father Joseph Dyer

The ghost of Quint

Jamie Summers

Buford Pusser

Commander James Bond

Dr. Sam Loomis

The 1980s is an action movie spectacle and looks more like The Expandables than the League…

THE THREAT? Who else but RUSSIAN CYBORGS!

THE TEAM:

Col. Bob Hauk

John Rambo

Connor Macleod

Ellen Ripley

Commander James Bond

John Nadda

Oh, the 90s… and our story goes full on dystopian cyberpunk

THE THREAT? CYBORG ALIENS, of course!

THE TEAM:

Thomas Anderson/NEO

Snake Plissken

Judge Dredd

Sgt. Murphy

Commander James Bond

Sarah Conner

As the millennia changes, so does the game… these are all 2000 and after (this was harder than I thought and now I know why Jim stopped it at the 2000’s, too!)

THE THREAT: An army of Bigheads is on the rampage, and man, are they horny… or is it hungry? Horngry?

THE TEAM:

John Wick

Selene

Det. Nick Burkhardt

Danny Torrance

Commander James Bond

The Exit

Yeah.  I like James Bond.

Happy New Year, to my friends and fans, all of my peeps and perps.
