I would suggest going with a "no powers" theme for Season 3.

 

Makes people have to think more about their teams(instead of just trying to find the most powerful that still fits within the limits), and prevents the issue of too powerful characters.

 

And that theme still leaves for a ton of possible slots.

Actually, a "normal" opponent slot would do.

This would work better if you say live action no powers I think. Then you would have some very close matches. If you just say non powered, we are going do draft Batman and Nightwing and such.

All you really have to say is they have to be regular humans on all levels physically. Also some more slot ideas:

 

1. Adventurers ( Think Nathan Drake or Indiana Jones)

2. Cartoon Slot ( Not Toons with Toon Force. Think Simpson, Mickey Mouse depending on the version, Darkwing Duck, South Park, Family Guy, and others)

3. Slasher Slot (Chucky or Jason for ex)

4. Monster Fighter Slot ( Think main heroes from Resident Evil, Beowulf himself, Walking Dead, Vampire Hunters, and more)

5. Criminal Boss or Mastermind slot  (Joker, Kingpin, Scarface, Godfather and more)

Those can work like maybe say Ariel/Marlene from Robotech on the second slot.

Sorry for the double post but I have to ask, what can be done for anyone who doesn't get to the draft on time?

Might change the draft process some to try and avoid the crush of picks when the gate opens and stagger it a bit.

I don't feel like joining this one. The last season got boring past part 6.

What about this?

 

To fit in a slot, it has to be the character's primary skill. In other words, you couldn't use Ultron to process the teams odds, or Goku to bring the team kung fu. Ultron is certainly capable of crunching numbers, and Goku knows kung fu, but that's really not what they're about. For them these are secondary or even tertiary powers.

A power limit is key for sure. The titles were fun names more then actual descriptions. There was no math test in slot 3 and no crime scene in slot 2.

Along those lines, better descriptions for the slots would be helpful. I went with the best detective I could get, but there are a lot of challanges in that slot custom fit to an assassin.

I liked the diversity of that slot. Anyone could win depending on the challenge. It was hard when someone like shadow or Ant-man made it in when it said non or low powered hero though.

I just felt it got rather repetitive and hard to navigate. After so many things, I couldn't remember which characters I picked.

OK some really great slot suggestions.  Appreciate it.  All the slots for Season three I will farm from this thread.

 

Also, based on some feedback probably going to do a couple things different. 

 

For one, instead of having a couple admins Reviewing the teams what we might do is have people draft their teams and then provide a period for all the other players to look over their competition and to Raise An Objection™ for characters on teams that do not fit the slot.

 

Also, as far as drafting goes, possibly will break the player pool into groups and let them draft different slots on different days.  That instead of the first come first serve crush on all the slots.

No complaints from me, especially on the second thing. That really can work for me since it makes things easier for me like I say I have a prior engagement.
