Team Miller!

It's Frank Miller time! We've looked at the hero teams that might be assembled from the work of two classic Silver Age artists - Kirby and Ditko - but only one Modern Ager - John Byrne. So it's only fitting we turn to the Modern Age again, to one who really put his stamp on comics in the 80s and like it or not, paved the way for the 90s. Everyone tried to do anti-heroes, but arguably, Frank Miller was the first and the best. The SBG thus presents...

Frank Miller's Goddamn Outsiders!These guys are HARD CORE. Led by the future Dark Knight, Daredevil, Elektra, Marv, Miho and King Leonidas fight the grim and gritty fight through the whole of history. It's bloody, it's nasty, and it probably won't last long.

Martha Washington wanted to get in on it, but she seems to be on Gibbons' team instead. And if the team could have included his writerly projects as well, she would have been joined by Wolverine, Carl Seltz, Robocop and maybe both the Goddamn Batman and the Year One Batman. But I've that up to you in the comments.

A team made of angry loners looks real complicate to manage...

And I suppose Dark Knight Batman would commit suicide If he knows he will become the Goddam Batman someday.

Isn't that the other way around? Dark Knight is GD Batman grown old.

Well... if there's a coherent continuity here (which I call Miller Time).

I was thinking in the Year One Batman. The memory of the Goddam Batman was the reason the Dark Knight started to drink.

After watching the film of Sin City, I was left was the distinct impression that Miho was her surname, her first name being Deadly-Little...

If you can have multiple Batmen, you can at least have the Wanted: Santa Claus: Dead or Alive Batman in this team...
