Fandom Mashup (#19)

Hosted by Micheline at Lunar Rainbows Reviews.

Micheline has come up with a great idea and I can't pass up the opportunity to participate.  Each week Micheline will pose a unique fiction scenario and I will choose 5 characters from 5 different fandoms to help me with the situation.  It's going to be quite fun, I can already tell!

Scenario: With all the EPIC powers you learned last week, you've gotten a bit carried away and you've decided to TAKE OVER THE WORLD. Who do you choose as you loyal followers?

Welp, I missed last week, but I still have some amazing powers!  So here's my group of followers. And when I say followers, I mean people who would be essential to helping me run the world once I'm benevolently ruling it.  There's got to be people that will keep me in check and to help keep people safe.  Let's get to them, shall we?

Oliver Queen (DC Arrow) -  As a benevolent leader of the new world, Oliver Queen and his alias the Green Arrow would definitely have to be on my team.  I don't think he'd fly with the whole dictatorship thing, but he would most willingly be a part of the keep the cities safe and free of villains part of my leadership.  He would be a strong captain,  and with him would come his team.  And they are great to have on the same side.

Hawkeye (Marvel) - I'm not going to pass up and opportunity to have the coolest superhero on the planet in any universe join my ranks. He's loyalty as well as his talent with a bow and arrow makes him an asset.  That and I love his history and the fact that his humor is spot on all the time.

Octavia Blake (The 100) - Octavia is one bad ass woman.  I would have her on any and every team I create.  She is a woman of action and a leader.  Honestly, she would make a better ruler than me and she is one of the best fighters I have ever seen.  It would be stupid not to have her as one of my followers.  She would keep me in line.

Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) - She is one of the brightest witches in the world and having her on my team would give me access to the Wizarding World.  She is kick ass and she cares so much about the injustices in this world.  She is the perfect person to have my back. 

Annabeth Chase (Percy Jackson) - She's my link to the demigods living at Camp Half-blood and other places in the world.  She is incredibly smart cunning and has great stealth abilities.  She would be an asset among my loyal followers.
