As seen from the point of view of an unnamed hero who is rejected by both the main Marvel & DC teams.


There's a boy scout, a bat and an Amazon
Some guy with wings on his head
A bunch of dudes with ring fetishes
And a Robin Hood wannabe
They're the team who're supposed to be
Keeping us safe in our bed

But they don't want me in
Their super-team
They've got all the powers they need
(So they say)
They don't care that I can
Move planets with a thought
"We've got your number
We might call you some day..."

[Verse 2]
There's a defrosted patriot, a drunk tin man,
A wife-beating giant-come-ant
A thunder god with a boomerang hammer
And a Robin Hood wannabe
They're the team that's supposed to be
Protecting when webcrawlers can't
