The Mighty Crusaders - You got the Shield, the original Star Spangled adventurer; Black Hood, Man of Mystery; the Comet, aerial powerhouse; The Fly and Flygirl, mystically powered champions. You might recognize some of the creators behind these characters: Jack Kirby, Joe Simon, Jerry Siegel, Jack Cole. Yeah, those guys.

Another overlooked team is the Elementals created by Bill Willingham. Four people die and are brought back to life with powers that mimic their mode of demise.

Monolith - killed in a landslide and comes back as an earth golem
Fathom - drowned, now has water based powers
Morningstar - perished in flames and now controls them
Vortex - asphyxiated in a helicopter crash, flies and controls air

The series was incredible and dealt with a number of gritty, real world issues such as death, religion, sexual dysfunction, violence, human trafficking but somehow retained a sort of whimsy mixed with the supernatural.

One of my fave Marvel teams that no one has ever heard of is the Night Shift - Basically the supernatural version of the Thunderbolts years before that group formed. The Shroud with Werewolf by Night mis-leading villains - The Brothers Grimm, Gypsy Moth, Tatterdemalion and more - into doing good deeds. Fan-tastic!

Which reminds me of DC's underused Supernatural group Shadowpact - This is a great set of magic based heroes including Blue Devil, Ragman, Enchantress, Nightshade, Nightmaster and of course Detective Chimp

Finally, I think everyone has heard of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Don't forget that these heroes in the hard shell started out in the comics before their meteoric rise to TV, Movies, video games, trading cards, action figures, pajamas, pizza endorsement, breakfast cereal, t-shirts, hand churned ice cream machines, turtle wax, matching dinnerware, inflatable punching bags, authentic turtle shell slippers, letter openers, non-alcoholic beverages, alcoholic beverages, prophylactics, self serve banana split stations, and anything else I can't think of right now.

Why not some villain teams?

Masters of Evil - there's been at least a half dozen incarnations of this team. All great

Sinister Six - classic Spidey foes

Fatal Five - a handful of villains that routinely push the LEGION of Super Heroes to the brink of defeat

Secret Society of Super-Villains - just the cream of the crop of evil

And, lest we forget Monster Society of Evil - one of the earliest super villain groups in comics


There are dozens more of course: Flash's Rogues Gallery, the U-Foes, Sinestro Corps, Wrecking Crew, etc...

How about some love for the bad guys!
