League of Extraordinary Vehicles
A silly little thought experiment.
A team of vehicles, from different fiction franchises, that are (without explanation) Transformers and deal with special problems beyond the normal Autobot/Decepticon conflict. I envision three time eras with teams, and talk a bit about the plot points for a few of them. Here are my thoughts, with no challenge to anyone’s copyrights. Also, this article is not Open Content, and is not covered by the OGL.
