The UK Avengers by CosmicThunder The UK Avengers by CosmicThunder
The UK Avengers/ The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2013)

"There was an idea, to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could fight the battles that we never could..."
- Nick Fury

Using the modern-day adaptations of British fictional icons, The Doctor, Sherlock, James Bond… and characters that are the Modern-day British versions of iconic staples in Pop Culture such as 2 of Misfits "Superheroes" and Being Human's Werewolf, Vampire and Ghost trio. I have created what I would like to think is the United Kingdom’s answer to Marvel's The Avengers.

From left to right.

Merlin (BBC Merlin), Tom, Alex and Hal (UK Being Human), Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes (BBC Sherlock), James Bond 007, Nathan and Kelly (Misfits), Captain Jack Harkness (Torchwood), Billy Hyde / Dr Tom Jackman (Jekyll) and The Doctor (Doctor Who)

I hope you like it.

If someone has written one I don't know about it. I have been thinking a lot about writing one lately though. I came up with a story when I first drew the picture but never got round to writing it down.

After this adventure I hope the Doctor allows them on the Taris to explore Time and Space with him. That'd be awesome.

But where is Watson? Holmes without Watson is like a racehorse without its hooves.

When I was coming up with the idea of this picture I couldn't help myself from coming up with a story to go with it. Why is it these people, what do they bring to the team, who would get along with who, who wouldn't get along with who, what threat would bring about the necessity to assemble a team of this magnitude and where in the characters own mythologies would this story take place?

For Sherlock I took to imagining this team up happens in-between series 2 and 3 in the time where Watson, and the majority of the UK thinks Holmes is dead. And that's why John Watson isn't next to him.

I would imagine it would be villains from each franchise teaming up to make super teams, like S.P.E.C.T.E.R. and the Death Eaters.

I know it's based on the comic, but it seems somewhat wrong to have a UK Avengers team without Steed and Peel.

CosmicThunder Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2013
Haha yeah i see what you're saying. But, it's also meant to be the modern day (2013) version of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The conceit of that being, the team is made up of characters that are around and or active in that time period. 

That's why Captain Scarlet isn't there, because he's not been born yet, Robin Hood isn't there, because he's been dead for a few 100 years. And Steed and Peel aren't there, because they'd be in their 80's/90's and retired.

WEEEEEEE! Love it. I imagine Mycroft would (as in the comic) be their overseer of sorts. If I had a few additions of my own I would have loved Captain Britain and his sis Psylocke (especially given Brian's ties to Merlyn) and possibly V, but maybe those guys and girls are a little too comic'y. Anyway, great work!

Little extra something, the coat is meant to be Sirius Black’s velvet house coat.

The one he wears in Order of the Phoenix when he is showing Harry the Black family tree.

I was looking at this via one of the groups its in and going "Oh this is a rather nice one!" in my head, then when I saw the title I almost choked on the pop I was drinking. Not sure why but it hit a funny spot for me, hehe. :) Fantastic work!

It's a nifty idea, though when one sees the phrase "UK Avengers", one expects to see bowler hats and catsuits.

the full title is ment to be

The UK Avengers/ The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2013)

but that didn't fit and having Avengers in the title has got it more noticed. i didn't even think about the 60's Show when i was making.
