Top Ten Tuesday (11): Ultimate Superhero Team


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

It's a freebie week where you get to pick your own topic, and we're combining our nerdy love of books with our nerdy love of comic book superheroes. We thought it would be fun to assemble our own superhero team, all Avengers-like, but instead made up of fictional characters from YA books. So here's the list:

  1. Dimitri Belikov from the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead: Every superhero team needs a leader. Dimitri doesn't just lead but he fights too!
  2. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling: Obviously, Hermione covers the brains department.
  3. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins: If you need expert scouting or recon, or just someone who's killer with a bow and arrow à la Hawkeye, Katniss is your girl!
  4. Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan: Every superhero team needs Thor-like help. Percy might not wield a hammer, but he's still a demigod!
  5. Cassel Sharpe from The Curse Workers series by Holly Black: Sometimes missions can get very messy, and Cassel, with his transformation powers, has a knack for cleaning things up.
  6. Adrian Ivashkov from the Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead: Those tech gadgets and weapons don't come cheap, and Adrian's wallet knows no depths.
  7. Ismae Rienne from Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers: Whether the mission requires stealth or not, assassin Ismae has got you covered.
  8. Han Alister, aka Cuffs, from the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima: He may not have "super powers," but a negotiator always comes in handy.
  9. Bubba Burdette from the Chronicles of Nick series by Sherrilyn Kenyon: Tech gadgets and weapons are an absolute necessity, whether it be for zombies or your more typical villain. Bubba can help you out.
  10. Saba from Blood Red Road by Moira Young: Saba smash!!

What topic did you choose for your list this week? Please link us up!

  8. This is a brilliant list idea! I just love it! Hermoine, Katniss & Percy would made awesome additions to any team in my opinion :) And seeing your list makes me really wish I'd read Grave Mercy, the Seven Realms Series, Blood Red Road & The Vampire Academy Series...all are quite high priority on my reading list :) Hopefully I'll get around to them soon! Thanks for sharing Lee, again love the list!

    1. Ally loved The Demon King and Grave Mercy, and I've been dying to read both ever since she posted her reviews. I hope to at least get to Grave Mercy before the end of the year. Eek- I'm running out of time to get in all of the books that I wanted to read this year! Thanks for dropping by!
