What if there was a Super Villain League?

Post by DBZAOTA482 » Tue Dec 13, 2016 10:59 pm

We know who the heroes are... the Z-Warriors: Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Piccolo, Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, Goten, and Trunks.

But about the villains?

If there was then I'd think it would go like this...

Freeza is the leader of the group... but only because Cell let's him due to finding his controlling nature amusing though him and Piccolo Daimao will kill him off once it stops being amusing. Piccolo Daimao and Cell are the strategists... always thinking up plans together. Dr. Gero is the scientist who's working behind the scene... he is the founder of the group due to his vendetta against Goku for ruining his career. Kid Boo is the muscle... he's the last resort weapon because he's totally crazy.... and evil.

What do y'all think?

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

It's an interesting concept, but as with the vast majority of 'evil organization' ideas it wouldn't really work very well. Heroes can band together for the greater good because that's their goal. Villains on the other hand have a harder time banding together since their goals tend to be more self serving.

In the specifics here I don't see Cell following anyone's orders but his own, same goes for Freeza. Dr. Gero tried the whole evil organization thing, it was called Red Ribbon, and it didn't end well for him.

As for Kid Buu if you think ANY of these people could even begin to control him, you really don't know just what Kid Buu is - a being of pure chaos.

I did a thread similar to this one a while back. We kinda got a villain league in the After Life Tenkachi Budokai arc with Cell, Freeza, King Cold and the Ginyu force working as one group to get rid of Goku. My own Legion of Doom DB team would be like this:

King Cold
Dr. Gero
Commander Red
Tambourine (Since Piccolo Daimao can't be used. This would be the closest thing I can use for now)
Captain Ginyu

I believe the entire freeza force to be just that

...so are we just assuming they're all equally as powerful as each other? Because otherwise the strongest of them would simply get annoyed and kill all the others. None of them have personalities that play well with each other. And Pure Boo? Why not use Super Boo? At least the latter can talk and make plans, the former is just a berserk animal who would attack everyone else in the group on sight. Then again, if Super Boo was here, he'd probably just absorb all the other villains in their sleep or something.

He's probably referring to the Bardock special. Zarbon was the one who first recommended destroying Planet Vegeta because the saiyans were rapidly growing in strength.
It was actually Beerus disguised as Zarbon #StayWoke

Like with Freeza, where he starts off over 10 times stronger than all his henchmen except Ginyu (because...well, just because), then we find out he can transform and get even more powerful, and then he reveals he can transform two more times, before finally coming out with the fact that he hasn't even been using anywhere near 50% of his power. Oh, and he can survive in the vacuum of space. All this stuff is just presented as the way Freeza is, without even an attempt at rationalizing it, yet the tone dictates we're supposed to take all this silly grasping at straws as thrilling danger. So I guess I don't really take the power inflation in the Boo arc seriously, but I don't take the power inflation in earlier arcs seriously either, so there's no net loss of seriousness. I think a silly story presented as serious is harder to accept than a silly story presented as silly.

The organisation would never last a week. Too many fucking egos and chronic backstabbers.

Me too. I can't see in Dragon Ball anything besides it that can be placed as a "Super Villain league" stuff.

The closest we ever got to that was during "The Plan to Eradicate the Saiyans" up until we discovered they were just Fake copies or "Ghosts" of the originals.
Big Green: Do whateveryoulike, Ghos
Broly: haha He calls me a goohst, but IMMMD DA DEVVVVAAALLL! RAHAHAHAHA!
Trunks: "Dhe computer selffishy intesnafiy dosuementos."
Android 13: Yum Boy
Vegeta: The Legendary Warrior of SpaZe.
