Unlike many sourcebooks, this one didn’t have much in the way of real-world research. For that matter, the superhero team is sadly neglected in mainstream media such as movies and even animation, although there are a few exceptions. Most of the good examples you’ll find will be in comics, and there are a lot of them. To keep things easy, I’ve grouped them according to the team archetype each fits, although there is some blurring in quite a few of them.
