Thanks; if you think my fanfic ideas are good, then my original comic work ( linked in my sig ) should be awesome. This logic in no way represents a swollen ego.
The public villain Henry Peter Gyrich, taking his grudge against superhumans as far as he could. This wouldn't have the out of him being flooded with mind-controlling nanites, either; he'd actually go through with it. The real villain would be Mr. Sinister, who I actually think has a lot of potential despite years of being in lame-ass stories. Sinister manipulates things out of a detached amusement, mixed with Apocalypse's " Strong survive " genocidal motives ( except that Sinister knows this is a complete mockery of Darwin; he just wants to see what the best bloodlines are by rooting out the weak, and he doesn't hide that he wants this because he's an evil bastard. Look at the name ).
Megalomaniacs like the Mandarin, the Red Skull, and the Leader would use this the perfect opportunity to let loose their doomsday plans. With the heroes hiding out from their government, they face little obstructions. What might be neat would be for international heroes ( Winter Guard, Triumph Divison ) to have to step up; they're just as capable as the American heroes, but with American arrogance losing its justification, they, like the X-Men, get their day in the sun.
Doctor Doom and Magneto join the heroes. Doom, because he doesn't want to be deprived of the right to defeat Reed Richards on his terms, and Magneto because even his homo superior elitism could not make him stand by and see people persecuted.
Alien characters would not be involved; the heroes I imagine being involved in this crossover would be more like the Ultimate Universe makeup ( mutants and humans with powers ). One thing that made the Ultimate Universe suited to these sorts of stories was that cosmic and supernatural elements were kept to a minimum, and sidelined when necessary.
Nitro, oops. Nuke is still dead ( and that ridiculous Wolverine: Origins story with him never happened in my mind ).
