Nice idea. Not knocking it but the only thing that Luthor and Green Goblin have in common are the evil businessman angle. Goblin's got more in common with Joker than Lex. I would have picked Man-Thing to counter Swamp Thing, too.

Other than that - aces! I can think of 6 that would match Batman but Tony Stark's a good choice!

Despite the name Captain Marvel is also from DC comics, or at least the one referred to here is. That means that they did not put a marvel equivalent of superman, just another DC one

What xantre said! http://www.listal.com/character/captain-marvel is a DC guy, not Marvel, despite the name.
