As per usual, you can enter your own answers once per day and vote for as many teams as you wish per day. When adding your answers, if you are going to add a team that has had drastically different line up variations can you please specify which line-up you are nominating (for example; there have been two variations of the Guardians Of The Galaxy, one which ran during the 70's starting in 1969 consisting of Vance Astro, Yondu Udonta, Charlie-27, Martinex T'Naga and Stakar and Aleta Ogord, where as the one on the poll is the more recent and well known 2008 version featuring Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Drax The Destroyer, Groot and Adam Warlock). Voting will run until the 7th of September, so a week on Friday.
