I got this idea from someone else on the internet who made a team based on The Avengers, which has a movie coming out next year. I thought it was a cool idea so I decided to try it as well. I'm using completely different Pokémon compared to the other team that I saw. Four of these Pokémon were members of my previous team that was called Dragon Tank, if any of you remember that thread from the spring. Each Pokémon has a resemblance to the members of The Avengers.

#479 Rotom-W (War Machine): Electric/Water, Timid, Levitate, Item: Choice Specs
EVs: 252 SpA / 6 SpD / 252 Spe
Hidden Power [Ice]
Volt Switch
Hydro Pump

#248 Tyranitar (The Hulk): Rock/Dark, Adamant, Sand Stream, Item: Choice Band
EVs: 252 HP / 38 Atk / 220 SpD
Stone Edge

#121 Starmie (Captain America): Water/Psychic, Timid, Natural Cure, Item: Leftovers
EVs: 6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Rapid Spin
Ice Beam

It's not blue, but it's a star, which is on Captain America and his shield. Rapid Spin helps get rid of entry hazards that would really hurt Archeops. Two members of my team are weak to Fire, so Surf is a huge need.

#212 Scizor (Iron Man): Bug/Steel, Adamant, Technician, Item: Life Orb
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Bullet Punch
Swords Dance
Brick Break

The closest thing you can get to Iron Man. An adamant nature, a Life Orb, and Swords Dance raises it's attack to insane levels. A Life Orb also reminds me of Iron Man's chest. Bullet Punch is a STAB move that also gets boosted by Technician. Bug Bite and Superpower are preferred to X-Scissor and Brick Break, but getting them is a problem.

#462 Magnezone (Thor): Electric/Steel, Timid, Magnet Pull, Item: Air Balloon
EVs: 6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hidden Power [Fire]
Volt Switch
Flash Cannon

Good at trapping and killing Steel-types with Magnet Pull and Hidden Power [Fire]. Thunder Bolt and Flash Cannon are good STAB moves. Volt Switch has STAB and is good for scouting.

#567 Archeops (Hawkeye): Rock/Flying, Jolly, Defeatist, Item: Flying Gem
EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Quick Attack
Rock Slide

It's not a hawk, but it'll work. I know a lot of people hate it, but it's one of the best Pokémon that I've ever used, IMO. Flying Gem + Acrobatics= KO most of the time. Rock Slide is STAB. Stone Edge is a riskier alternative. Quick Attack could be the difference between getting a KO or not.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

EDIT: I added Rotom-W and Tyranitar.
