(Not the movie. Never the movie. Which was never made.)
Like my own efforts, the spoof 1988 and 1996 incarnations of the LoEG consisted of characters from US movies, rather than Moore and O'Neill's more literary source material:
Subsequent to my writing the pitches below, some of the characters I used cropped up in the ongoing comic series (see Nemo: River of Ghosts), so I guess I was in the right groove.
If anyone fancies their ability to draw decent team shots of either group, please do get in contact and save me several hours swearing at Photoshop.
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1976
Gathered by the rumpled man in the hat calling himself K, a new League is assembled to face a satanic threat to America and the World:
• Teenage demonic possession survivor Regan MacNeil
• Fearless marine biologist Matt Hooper
• Driven narcotics cop Popeye Doyle
• Haunted outdoorsman Lewis Medlock
• Taciturn martial artist Lee
Together they overcome Texan cannibals, murderous trucks and rampaging grizzlies before finally storming the Bramford, an unassuming New York apartment building where they must face the ultimate evil: the child Damian Thorn and his resurrected consort Carrie White.
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1979
Recruited, blackmailed and in one case literally rewired by shadowy New York businessman M, a new League is tasked with putting a stop to a sinister force intent on uniting all the city's street gangs under one charismatic leader. They are:
• Resourceful babysitter Laurie Strode
• Never say die debt collector Rocky Balboa
• Historian and runner Babe Levy
• Nurse turned avenging angel Coffy
• Quiet taxi driver Travis Bickle
• The silent, black-clad Gunslinger
They must run a deadly gauntlet through the turf of the Gramercy Riffs, not-so tranquil Crystal Lake, past Illinois Nazis and finally to sleepy Stepford, where visionary youth leader Jack Curry and his mentor Dr Christian Szell are busy creating the perfect society.
