I like this. Neat idea.

Professor X, Black Adam and The Flash.

Charles could simply shut down Cap, Widow, and Iron Man with his mind. Flash would rinse Pietro and Black Adam could hold his own against Thor until the the other two could help.

Lobo is highly proficient with weaponry. That could stand well against Black Widow and Iron Man, maybe even Cap.

Flash is a heckuva lot faster than Quicksilver but Quicksilver could still stand his own against him.

Psylocke could easily take on Cap and Black Widow and come out on top, but any more and she'd be starting to lose.

Black Adam could certainly take on Thor and stand his ground for a good while.

Prof. X is the most powerful one there however I don't see him being much major use. The opposing team could very easily dispatch him with the right tactics. That is of course, if he's actually there.

Don't know anything about Preacher but I think he's brutal and doesn't mind killing or whatever.

Here's the team I'd have:

Black Adam, Prof. X and Flash. Same as AshleyWilliams but for different reasons.

Prof X. monitors the battle from a good distance away. He feeds tactics and warnings to Black Adam and Flash. Black Adam and Flash would need to take Thor down first, as he's the most powerful.

Use Flash as a distraction, have him run at Thor. While he does that, Black Adam rushes at someone weaker, like Black Widow. This would cause the others to focus on preventing Adam from killing Widow. Before he strikes Widow, Adam would turn to take a zap at Thor. At this point, Flash moves around Thor and comes up at the enemies from the rear.

Thor takes Adam's hit as he wasn't focused on him. All the while, Prof X. is feeding info to the Flash. He'd be reading the minds of the enemies and telling Flash how to intercept they're tactics. All the while, Adam is now the primary target. He sticks at Thor. The others constantly attempt to attack him but, Flash always manages to intercept they're attacks. Soon enough, Quicksilver would cop on to this tactic and take measures of his own.

Prof. X would tell Flash to take Quicksilver away from the main battle. Flash runs off leaving Adam completely open to attack from the remaining Avengers. Prof. X would stop feeding info to Flash and create a psi-barrier around Adam and Thor.

Assuming Adam doesn't take any damage from Thor and quickly defeats him, the rest of the fight's a doddle. Take out Cap and Iron Man the most efficient way possible. Adam could cause Iron Man's armour to malfunction, firing at Cap. Cap would obviously block the blasts with his shield. If Adam keeps up the barrage of energy from the Iron Man suit, he can take Cap physically. Adam would just need to fry Cap's brain. Iron Man and Widow are now the only ones left. Widow, would make an attempt at hand to hand combat with Adam, who would entertain this while Iron Man's armour reboots.

Prof. X turns his attention back to Flash. Quicksilver is travelling considerably slower than Flash. Flash would stop abruptly. Quicksilver would whiz past him. Flash turns back and returns to the battle. He arrives, Quicksilver hot on his heels and in order to take Iron Man out of the equation, throws the damaged hero at Quicksilver, who would do one of two things:

1. Fail to notice and get hit.
2. Notice and move in another direction.

Either way, this is a benefit. If the first occurs, Iron Man would be shattered by the kinetic energy exerted upon him by Quicksilver. If number 2 happens, then Quicksilver would have to lose focus. Flash could then seize the opportunity to dispatch Quicksilver with a swuift and unnoticed attack.

Meanwhile, Adam is still fighting Black Widow hand to hand. Assuming Quicksilver is not hit by Iron Man, then Iron Man could still get up and pose a threat. Quicksilver is at this point defeated by the Flash's surprise attack. This leaves only Widow and Iron Man active. Iron Man's armour reboots, the first thing he's going to do is put a trace on Flash, allowing him to determine his movements. Iron Man would then fire heat seeking missiles at Flash, causing him to have to run away. The missiles would have no chance of keeping up. Thus, they would have to acquire a new target or just explode.

If they were to acquire a new target, it would be Black Adam, who is generating huge amounts of energy and radiating a lot of heat. Adam would have to focus on the missile's for a brief time, giving Widow the upper hand. Widow would take the opportunity to either knock him down or get clear before the missiles hit. If she were to knock him down, she is now more susceptible to be affected by the missiles.

She is caught up in the blast and is incinerated, however Prof X. would create a psi-shield around Adam, defending him from the blast. Adam would then fry Iron Man alive.

That's how you win a fight.

flash xavier and black adam would cream the avengers team easy

NOVACORPSFAN... you really know a hell lot dude.

I'll pick only one, Preacher.

Preacher will use the "WORD" against Thor and Iron Man and tell them to kill their Avenger friends and after they've finished dispatching them, Preacher will use the "WORD" again and command Thor and Tony to kill each other and that's about it.

Well, I like planning and stuff. However I'm incredibly disorganised.

It only shows that The Avengers is beatable while using only three characters, insane but it's true.
MightyZeus - 12/11/2013, 3:59 AM
I think this is a great idea.
My three choices would be: The Flash, Iron Man and Black Adam.

But where's the fun in that?
