I'd love to see a Wrecking Crew limited series. I know, they are the "go to" for generic villain team, but I think there's actually some untapped potential there.

We know who the Wrecker is. He's been a solo act, he's the mouthpiece and leader of the group. We've got a decent feel for Thunderball. He's the smart one. I liked seeing him apart from the Crew in Amazing Spider-Man back in the 90s. He had some good insight into hero & villain teams. We have even seen some power struggles between the two.

I know there's a new Bulldozer, but I haven't seen much of her. Piledriver is about as close to a blank slate as you can get for a character with as many appearances as he has.

What makes the team work? Why do they stick together? Aside from some friction between Wrecker & Thunderball, they all seem to get along. Is that true?

Could characters even of their limited intellect develop some unique combat strategies? Could their abilities manifest in slightly different ways?

Throw in Piledriver's kid, Excavator, and there's a lot to explore, I think!

There is also Demolisher https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Demolisher_(Wrecking_Crew)_(Earth-616)
