Today, Marvel's superhero teams enjoy a higher profile than ever before. Not only are big name groups like the Avengers and the X-Men known around the world, but even the Guardians of the Galaxy have become a household name and their members include a talking raccoon and a sentient tree.
Despite that, there are still plenty of Marvel teams out there who are relatively unknown. Some were spin-offs from Marvel's best selling teams, others were attempts to start a brand new franchise. They might not have ever had a chance of reaching the big leagues but a lot of these teams might have had big name members and maybe even their own series at some point, but they've now faded into obscurity (some for very good reason).
This is comics though, where even the most unlikely of series is only a reboot away from success so chances are we could end up seeing one or more of these teams brought back somewhere along the line.
From dimension hopping mutants to animal Avengers, here are ten of Marvel teams that most people haven't heard of. They might not all be good, but at least they're interesting.
