Remember, I am selecting a superhero than can put an end to crime in their city and can also be a major asset as their alter ego. The right person has to be drafted and all decisions are based on a variety of factors including geographical location, overall crime issues, education, specific social problems, the history of the city, and any interesting pop culture facts. Enjoy.
Selection #16 - Springfield, Illinois
Superhero drafted: The Flash (Wally West)
What the experts predicted: Ghost Rider
Overview: The Flash is a great selection for the state capital of Illinois and the city where Lincoln practiced law. The Wally West version of The Flash protected Central City, Kansas, so this superhero will have no problem relocating to another Midwestern city. The experts have Waukegan, Illinois' very own Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider falling to Springfield, but you can't pass up the talents of The Flash at this position.
Selection #17 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Superhero drafted: Wolverine
What the experts predicted: War Machine
Overview: Instead of taking hometown hero, War Machine, the City of Brotherly Love lands an incredible crime fighter with Wolverine. Like the Wally West version of The Flash, you can not pass up on Wolverine's talents in a city overrun with crime.
Selection #18 - Lowell, Massachusetts
Superhero drafted: The Thing
What our experts predicted: The Human Torch
Overview: Lowell has had problems with violent crime and gangs for too long. IT'S CLOBBERIN' TIME!
Selection #19 - Richmond, California
Superhero drafted: Sub-Mariner
What our experts predicted:Storm
Overview: This Bay City area is known for devastating earthquakes, chemical leaks, and a high crime rate. Someone needs to get things situated and this is a job for the Sub-Mariner.
Selection #20 - St. Petersburg, Florida
What our experts predicted: Aquaman
Overview: Come on, folks, this is a no-brainer.
