The UK Avengers by CosmicThunder The UK Avengers by CosmicThunder
The UK Avengers/ The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2013)

"There was an idea, to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could..."
- Nick Fury

Using the modern-day adaptations of British fictional icons, The Doctor, Sherlock, James Bond… and characters that are the Modern-day British versions of iconic staples in Pop Culture such as 2 of Misfits "Superheroes" and Being Human's Werewolf, Vampire and Ghost trio. I have created what I would like to think is the United Kingdom’s answer to Marvel's The Avengers.

From left to right.

Merlin (BBC Merlin), Tom, Alex and Hal (UK Being Human), Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes (BBC Sherlock), James Bond 007, Nathan and Kelly (Misfits), Captain Jack Harkness (Torchwood), Billy Hyde / Dr Tom Jackman (Jekyll) and The Doctor (Doctor Who)

I hope you like it.

There's just one man missing.

Agent John Steed, the one and only British Avenger.

The team is my idea of what the 2013 League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would look like. The conceit of that being it's made up of characters who are active in that time period. The reason Steed isn't there is because in 2013 he would be dead or retired.

I'd so watch a movie of this! Or a show :D No matter how silly people would think the idea is. Any idea can be turned into gold if executed right. Also, the Doctor meeting Harry would be so funny. Harry might think that the sonic screwdriver was a fancy modern kind of wand.

If someone has written one I don't know about it. I have been thinking a lot about writing one lately though. I came up with a story when I first drew the picture but never got round to writing it down.

After this adventure I hope the Doctor allows them on the Taris to explore Time and Space with him. That'd be awesome.

When I was coming up with the idea of this picture I couldn't help myself from coming up with a story to go with it. Why is it these people, what do they bring to the team, who would get along with who, who wouldn't get along with who, what threat would bring about the necessity to assemble a team of this magnitude and where in the characters own mythologies would this story take place?

For Sherlock I took to imagining this team up happens in-between series 2 and 3 in the time where Watson, and the majority of the UK thinks Holmes is dead. And that's why John Watson isn't next to him.

Watson is a doctor, and would as such know a lot about medicine and maybe even surgery. I think that would make him a wonderful asset to the team. And then there's Hermione, who's very interlectual in both spellcasting, herbology and potion-making, as well as ancient magical history. And now we have Newt Scamander, who's a brilliant magizoologist. However now it's just starting to get a little too crowded with people from the wizarding world, I think.

There is an update to this picture floating round the Internet where Lara Croft is on the team. A skilled fighter in both hand to hand and weapons combat, who can speak nearly every language, shes incredibly smart and someone who is well-versed in ancient cultures and who knows how to properly wield the powers of mystical artifacts such as Excalibur and Mjolnir. Plus she would have a fun back and forth with The Doctor, the time traveler and the archaeologist. But beyond that I agree it would start to get crowded. More an army than a team.

As for your suggestions, while Watson and Hermione would be fun additions, they would also be redundant. I mean you don't need another doctor when you have The Doctor and as for Hermione, we already have Merlin you don't need an ancient magical historian when you got the guy who lived through it all. Not to mention he's an incredibly powerful immortal wizard, an expert in the old ways and the last Dragon Lord.

And while its very tempting to add Newt, the team is my idea of what the 2013 League of Extraordinary Gentlemen would look like. The conceit of that being it's made up of characters who are active in that time period. So considering Newt is in his 30s in the 1920s hes not likely gonna be around in 2013. That's why Captain Scarlet isn't there because he's not been born yet and Robin Hood isn't there because he's been dead for a few 100 years.

I would imagine it would be villains from each franchise teaming up to make super teams, like S.P.E.C.T.E.R. and the Death Eaters.
