Marvin Milk

Unlike The first four people on this list, Marvin “M.M.” Milk doesn’t have any superpowers. He’s just really good at what he does. He’s the thing that keeps the team together, incredible in clutch situations, and has a huge heart. Does all that make him a prime candidate for a superhero team? Probably not. What it does mean is he’s perfect for a couple of other teams.

You don’t have to be an Avenger, member of the Fantastic Four, or fly with Superman to be a hero in comic books. In Marvel, M.M. could have been a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. We’ve seen Phil Coulson, Bobbi Morse (she didn’t always have powers), and Jefferson Davis (Miles Morales’ father) help S.H.I.E.L.D. protect the world. He could also have been part of a long line of heroes that fought alongside Nick Fury doing clandestine missions. That’s the kind of potential he has.

Over on the DC side of things, M.M. would be perfect with Batman. He could’ve worked right beside Alfred Pennyworth. The two of them would have had Batman working even more efficiently than ever. That’s a scary thought. During the times when Alfred was attacked in the cave, he’d help keep Alfred protected until Bruce could get back to the cave. Plus, he would be in less danger. Something his family would appreciate.
