Since things are quiet right now I thought I would pick everyone’s brain.....

What former Marvel Title(s) would you give a second chance to? If you would change anything about the series - feel free to say what creative team, who would be the star(s) and what would be the premise....

Mine:

#1 X-Men 2099 - I would use the same premise they did with Spider-Man 2099 a few years back and have them stranded in the present for the first year or so in a “Legion Lost” kind of way. Keep the original X-Men 2099 team: Xian, Cerebra, Krystalin, Mettlehead, Meanstreak, Bloodhawk and Skullfire. - It would be interesting to see mutants of the future interact with the Krakoan Nation that is happening currently. I can’t see them joining the islanders and would create an interesting tension between the heroes they worship and this portion of history they may not have known about.

#2 Spider-Girl & The Exiles (Yeah this is merging two books into one) - Spider-Girl(Mayday), Blink, Morph - hopping through the galaxies with a rotating in and out team in unpredictable and often tragic tales like Judd Winnick did in the original series.

#3 What If..... have the original writers of the story do a new take on the story told. Claremont could do a Dark Phoenix Saga what if story, Peter David could do a Maestro story, Mark Miller for Civil War. I think having the original writers (and artists if possible) would give the What If storied so much more depth.

If I think of any more I will add to the post. What fun ideas would you all have?

I would put John Byrne on Alpha Flight with the condition that he explore an alternate timeline from #12 and that he keep the book grounded in Canada, so settings, culture, myths, all that, more exploration into the Omega Flight team. Sabretooth as an adversary, team up with Captain Britain and the Black Knight. I wouldn't mind seeing Byrne explore some of what he had wanted to do with the timelines story he had planned for WCA.
