Assemble a superteam from your various fandoms. Your team must consist of the following:
(1) Team Leader
(1) Comic Relief
All your superteam members must be from DIFFERENT fandoms.
Team Leader - Psmith from P.G. Wodehouse's books. If Psmith can make havoc of boarding school, bank, country house, and the gangs of New York, he can lead this team.
Warrior - Kitty Jones from 'The Bartimaeus Trilogy'. She "did not waste words when a punch would do".
Smartypants - Miles Vorkosigan from Lois McMaster Bujold's novels. Made for the role, I think.
Hottie - Prince Charming from 'Fables'. Whatever his faults as a lying womanizer.
Comic Relief - Herr Dr. Schmidt from Elizabeth Peters' "Vicky Bliss" novels. Schmidt is a fat, short, romantic-minded German museum director, who "thinks of himself as a briliant amateur sleuth, the sourge of the underworld."
Now, add a team of supervillains for your team to fight.
(1) Loyal Lapdog
(1) Mad Scientist
(1) Bloodthirsty Assassin
(1) Lovable Failure
Like your superhero team, all members must be from different fandoms.
Master - Richard III, from Shakespeare's play.
Loyal Lapdog - Count Rugen from the Princess Bride. The six-fingered man.
Mad Scientist - The God of Evolution from Terry Pratchett's "The Last Continent." NOt my favourite Pratchett book, but the bit where he revealed a Giant Cockroach to be the ideal end product of evolution *was* a favourite.
Bloodthirsty Assassin - Cindy the Windowmaker from Jasper Fforde's 'Something Rotten'. (She misprinted 'Widowmaker' on her business cards.) Convinced her doting husband she was a librarian from a proud Sicilian family of librarians whose parents were gunned down on library business.
Lovable Failure - Smee from 'Peter Pan'
