Battle of the Bands

Derek Haas suggested a great challenge....Captain Marvel vs. Black a BATTLE OF THE BANDS!

Luckily, Alex (proprieter of the upcoming comic haven, Rocketship) already MADE a band for Captain Marvel, which he titled THE MOST INCREDIBLE BAND IN THE UNIVERSE.

Your challenge is to come up with a band for BLACK ADAM that could POSSIBLY compete in a battle of the bands with Alex's Captain Marvel band of...

Bender on lead guitar
Captain Marvel as the front man
Popeye on Keyboards


Sgt. Rock on bass.

How about:

-Black Adam on vocals.
-Optimus Prime (the 80's version) on lead.
-Buttercup Utonium on bass (she actually plays, too)
-Animal (of The Muppets) on drums.
-Reed Richards on keyboards (And I mean boards, plural. It should be easy for him to stretch his fingers over several)

The best part is that some of my choices actually play their instruments (Not well in Animal's case, but whatever). To my knowledge, neither Billy, Bender, Sailor Man nor the Sarge are musically inclined.

I figure they should be managed by Sherlock Holmes (He can double as their... supplier, if they plan on going in that... direction).

Call it: The Band of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Now if only I had all the action figures to demonstrate...

The lights dim at Orange County Arena, as thousands of screaming fans pant and calm themselves after the incredible performance of a most awesome opening act. *The opening act is Black Vulcan, Black Lightning and Black Panther doing Ramones covers with a funk beat. The name of the opening act is "The Black Musketeers."

The Black Musketeers leave the stage ... Suddenly, an announcer's voice rises, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome tonight's featured performers ...

-Blacula on electric accordian.
-BlackBison on bass. He's still dead. He's actually zombie BlackBison on bass. He's not very energetic. He eats anyone who throws underwear at him.
-Black Canary on lead vocals. She's got one of those Starro things on her face. STARRO IS ACTUALLY DOING THE SINGING BY CONTROLLING HER MIND THOUGHTS!
-Black Goliath on drums. He says inappropriately obvious things like, "Shouldn't the white lady singing be called WHITE PIERCING SCREAMER LADY?" during the show as a way to play off his obvious name. He makes a really cool face when he hits his drum sticks together to go 1, 2, 3 and start off their songs.
-Black Adam on lead guitar, playing a mean, mean Stratocaster V. He opens the show by shoting SHAZAM and getting out of the way really fast while the magic lightning bolt sets off a GIGANTICNORMOUS fireworks show that ends with a "rock sign" in the sky.

The name of their band is "BlackBelt Jones."

BlackBelt Jones is co-managed by Blackhawk, Black Condor and Black Panther.

Meet the Dopplegangers!

- Black Adam as frontman
- Scourge/Black Convoy (the late-era Transformers duplicate of Optimus Prime) on lead
- Mirror Universe Spock on bass
- Bizarro on key-tar
- Composite Superman on drums (with the combined power of the Legion, he could play a bigger drum kit than even Neil Peart of Rush)
- Negaduck (Darkwing Duck's evil twin) on cowbell

Just for clarification, Alex actually made that band and took the pictures. I posted them as he couldn't figure out how.

Crap, I'm too late, but here's my candidate anyway:

Braniac singing, Starro on tambourines (multiple), Zoom on drums, Joker on guitar/backing vocals, Gorilla Grodd on bass. Their name? Lex Luthor, hero. Playing small clubs that explode into rioting prison yards at the first chorus.
This, ladies, is the Greatest Band on Infinite Earths.

Gorilla Grodd has switched to keyboards, replaced by the Bat-Mite on bass.
