Poll Results!

The last poll asked which super team was your favorite and garnering 58% of the vote was the Legion of Super-Heroes! I have to say, they would be my first choice as well. I had no idea the Legion was that popular! I think one of the reasons behind the popularity of the Legion is that. because of the sheer number of characters, there's always someone to appeal to a potential reader. I always was a little partial to Element Lad myself...

Coming next with 28% of the vote was the Justice League of America! Also another favorite of mine... and a favorite of others also! There's a reason they're the premiere team in the DC Universe! When you have the greatest heroes of the modern world working together, great stories are an everyday occurance! And did I mention one of the team's founders was Aquaman??

And next was the Teen Titans with the remaining 14%! I always followed the Teen Titans because of Aqualad... It was also where I think he got to shine, away from Aquaman and out of his mentor's book. Until he left around issue 28, that is.
The Doom Patrol, Justice Society, and Outsiders failed to get any votes.

I never caught the appeal of the Doom Patrol, even though I liked Changeling (now Beast Boy) in the Teen Titans, none of their appearances ever made me want to read more about them.
The precursor the the Justice League was the Justice Society. Until the mid-nineties, I would have said there was nothing at all appealing about this team. It was a mini-series by Len Straszewski and Mike Parobeck that changed my mind and now I can't think of the DC Universe without there being a place for the Justice Society!
The Outsiders first teamed with Batman in the mid-eighties, while he was taking a sabbatical from the JLA. There have been several incarnations of the team and Batman is back to leading them again.
Thanks for participating and look for a Star Trek themed poll next!
