Final Results of the 2020 Team Draft

Six "general managers" (from took part in the "Team Draft," as we went in serpentine order (1-6, then 6-1, then 1-6 and so on), each choosing any Marvel character to put on our six separate AVENGERS teams.
The general managers were Van Allen Plexico, Mark Beaulieu, Rob Clough, Joe Crowe, Scott Harris-King, and Luke Smith.

You can watch the entire event on YouTube

Here are the six teams we assembled during the Draft.
I drew names to determine the draft order, with the results being the order they're listed in below. (Luke drafted first, then Mark, down to me at 6, then I drafted a second time (7th) and it worked its way back up to Luke for pick 12.)
