Newarama seriously needs to lay off the crack

Because clearly, it's affecting their judgment. That's the only possible explanation I can come up with for why they put Gen13 on their list of the ten greatest superhero teams of all time. The rest of their list is facepalm worthy as well:
  1. The Avengers
  2. Justice League of America
  3. X-Men
  4. Fantastic Four
  5. Teen Titans
  6. Watchmen
  7. Legion of Super-Heroes
  8. Justice Society of America
  9. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
Seriously? You've got the JSA, the first superhero team near the bottom, a team that didn't actually exist, and a team of public domain characters. There was no "Watchmen" team in the same-named series. You had The Minutemen, but they're hardly top ten anything. I'm not going to try and reorder that list, because this will never be posted, but I do think there are some easy replacement for Gen13, Watchmen, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Defenders, Doom Patrol, and The Outsiders. The fact that none of those three made the list is purely idiotic. Epic fail, Newsarama. Epic fail.

Hat tip to Bronze Age Babies.
