If The Defenders were the poor man’s Avengers, then The Champions happened when The Defenders had sex with The X-Men and tried to bury the child in the walls.  The book was never all that great, but look at the line up: Angel and Iceman, Ghost Rider, and Black Widow have all gotten movie deals.  Multiple movies, in fact.

Yeah, I know I called it one of the worst team books of the 1970s, but when I saw Matt Fraction’s obvious reference to the book in the latest issue of Hawkeye I got nostalgic.  Put a good team on this, and I bet it could be awesome.
