Re: Does this superhero team exist?

Waverly Sayre and I think Donna Parker made one-off initial appearances in Green Lantern Corps Quarterly back in the 1990s. Waverly supposedly became Green Lantern of Earth in the 19th century but his story was shrugged off as a "might-have-been". Donna lived in the 1950s or so and her story was presented as part of actual history because she declined the job.

Both characters have been revisited more recently as far as I know.

Charley Vicker was a supporting GL character from way back, but I never quite figured out his story. He had his own ring, but I don't think he was ever the official Earth GL.

^I'm not sure I'd count that, since Green Lantern isn't so much an individual secret identity as a job title, like firefighter or Starfleet officer. It may seem like a singular identity to human observers -- "the Green Lantern" as a specific person who passes the mantle down to another, like the Flash or Robin -- but that's not what it really is.

And I've never heard of the first five you mentioned, or the last one. Plus you left out Alan Scott; he's not technically a Corps member, but he's been retconned/grandfathered in.
I do think that Green Lantern counts if only because the intention was usually to have someone new assume the mantle. It was usually only retrospect that Hal Jordan was reinstated thus creating the problem of multiple Green Lanterns.

In terms of Legacies, only a few DC characters have ever had them

Batman: Bruce Wayne, Jean Paul Valley, Dick Grayson, Terry McGinnis (Tim Drake and Damian Wayne have also donned the cowl but usually in alternate futurues)

Wonder Woman: Hipolyta, Diana, Artemis, Donna Troy (Cassandra Sandsmark has worn the crown in an alternate future)

The Flash: Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, Bart Allen

I think that Green Lantern, Starman and Blue Beetle are the only other characters with any sort of serious legacy.

There have been 3 Atoms, 2 Green Arrows, 2 Aqualads, 2 Fire Storms
Well maybe I'm the faggot America.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.

Re: Does this superhero team exist?

On the original topic: I recall a run of Marvel's 1990s what If? series where the Watcher and some other folks were recruiting versions of the Fantastic Four from various What If? universes. They had to defeat Kang (I think), who had achieved ultimate power. As I recall, they just kept on sending FF team after FF team against Kang, who kept blowing them away. I don't remember if any of them teamed up with each other, though.

In the end

One wonders why nobody thought of this a little sooner.
