This is bloody hilarious. Davinder Brar, Chris Bird (of the website Mighty God King), and Andrew Wheeler have taken Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's fictional superteam conceit and applied it to the 1990s.
Who would be a member of the Nineties League? Chow Yun-Fat from John Woo's Hard Boiled, the evil girl from The Craft, and Bayside's own time-manipulating heartthrob. As they explain of this incarnation of the League:
Abuse of Playback, the technologically-derived drug made from distilled human memories, is sweeping the world — and Special Agent Fox Mulder learned too late that Playback was put forth on this planet by the Purity, seeking to condition humanity to their rule so as to better combat the Deadite incursion threatening the aliens' homeworld. Now Mulder is missing, and it falls to his partner, Dana Scully, to re-activate secret protocol LXG-71, the "League of Extraordinary Gentlepersons" (protocol renamed 1993 for "sensitivity reasons").
Scully swiftly collects Hong Kong Detective-Inspector "Tequila" Yuen, hyperviolent Wiccan practitioner Nancy Downs, the biological experiment/walking weapon known only as "Edward," and a young high-functioning sociopath named Zack Morris who has the strange ability to stop the flow of time itself.
Perhaps it is this last who attracts the attention of an enigmatic man who answers only to "Rufus," and who asks Scully to "set history right" and see that two young musicians — that, so far as she can tell, never existed — be born anew, so that peace may flourish on Earth. But the Purity have never shown any signs of temporal travel capability… so who, then, altered history?
This is as good if not superior to any comic book series or premise I have read all year. How terrific could this be even as just a comic. Don't get me started on the live action CGI version that actually takes footage from the era and seamlessly combines it with the living actors of today. I know I know, the concept is too ridiculous to even contemplate.
It's just....when I read the words Zac Morris and Sociopath in the same sentence I understood why this idea would be a winner. People forget that on a REAL superhero team you sometimes have to make allowances for dangerous or anti-social character traits if you want to get the job DONE!
Don't get me started on Rufus (George Carlin) - an inspired choice if there ever was one.

I found this over at IO9 which posts some of the trippiest stuff around.
