It’s Idle Thought Wednesday, so here’s my idle thought: The Justice League of America – as D&D characters! What races and classes would you pick for each superhero to re-create the iconic super-super-group as Fantasy heroes? I’ll start with suggestions for the Big Seven. If you want to play along, Wikipedia is, as ever, a brilliant resource about the many members through the team’s history.
Superman – Human Paladin. Obviously.
Batman – Gnome Artificer and counterpoint to the Big Cheese’s Lawful Good outlook. Got to love the idea of Batman as a gnome. Robin would, of course, be a Halfling Rogue.
Wonder Woman -Drow Cleric. Diana Prince would make a great drow.
Flash -Elf Ranger. Just add the Fast Runner feat. Several times.
Green Lantern – Human Ranger, multi-classed Wizard. Favours conjuring spells. Scared of Yellow Musk Zombies. And Yellow Mould.
Aquaman – Sahuagin Warlord. Ugly, but effective.
Martian Manhunter – Doppelganger Paladin. Because the very thought of a Doppelganger Paladin is so very Martian Manhunter-ish.
Now it’s your turn. Can you improve on my suggestions? Want to suggest a race/class combo for Plastic Man? Any valid D&D race or class is fair game, and any edition. Bonus points will be awarded for using Core 4e and providing full stats :D .
Over to you!
