The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – The American version. B A Baracus, Doc Jack Burton, MacGyver and more

Posted by LiveFor on April 2, 2010

A great April Fool joke but a cool, funny concept nonetheless. Comics Alliance posted the joke that Alan Moore’s next installment would go over the Atlantic – Lisa from Weird Science, MacGyver, Doc Brown from Back to the Future, B.A. and Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China.

When war-hero-turned-handyman Kesuke Miyagi is found drained of blood, it becomes clear that the occult gang known as the Lost Boys are targeting the only individuals that can stop them from complete domination of America. It’s the perfect case for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen–except that their government contact, Oscar Goldman, disbanded the team in 1979 after they defeated Mr. Han’s army of the living dead.

Now, disgraced scientist Emmet Brown has to put together a new team to combat the growing threat of the Lost Boys and their leader, a newly resurrected vampire kingpin Tony Montana: Transportation specialist Jack Burton, ex-commando B.A. Baracus, tech wizard Angus MacGyver and the mysteriously powerful femme fatale known only as “Lisa.” But will Brown be able to stop the Lost Boys before time runs out?

Check out the paintings behind the new team – the Bandit, Six Million Dollar Man, Serpico, Rocky, Shaft.

Can you think of any other USA teams through the ages or teams from Japan?

Lovely geek/nerd stuff. Great April Fool as well.
