Uncanny Avengers (Trust Exercise)

#1 Posted by tigerkaya (1262 posts) - - Show Bio

In order for the team to ever get out of their petty arguments I find the only way the can ever work together to prove this so called "alliance" of mutant and super humans with... A TRUST EXERCISE! Post what kind of trust exercise they should go into.

Mine is having one X-men member and Avenger member have theirs hands tied together while the other holds a rusty dagger, whoever cuts their bonds first fails the test and proves that the Uncanny Avengers program is a joke. However should all parties be able to keep their bonds with their partner for five days than the exercise is a success giving a sliver of hope that mutants and super humans can possibly co-exist.

That sounds good.

It is quite literally as simple as stopping with the treatment of the X-Men as if they are off in their own little world, only acknowledging them long enough to either drag someone over to the Avengers team, or attack them, before shunning them once more.

If the Uncanny Avengers sprung to the defense of a mutant being attacked by a mob, especially if it's just a small mutant kid, and jumped to take down mutant bad guys, that'd go a long way towards both sides trusting them.

Also, using the Avengers reputation to endorse Wolverine's school at a press conference, and using some of the Avengers budget to set up similar schools around the world, run by mutants, for mutants. Once those schools are set up, start desegregating the schools: Bring in non-mutant kids into the mutant schools as students. When over hearts and minds of children for the next generation. Make some of their best friends mutants, so when they get older, they'll stick up for them.

Also, imagine a number of futuristic schools like the Jean Grey School scattered around. It'd be pretty amazing for a normal student to attend a place like that. Definitely help win over kids.

... Not much of a trust exercise, but it might help with the mutant-human relations.

Draw names out of a hat to form an even number of two teams. Have them kill each other and the survivors eat the hearts of the fallen to unify their spirits and gain their warrior spirit. Thus, unifying the two teams at last.

@god_spawn: ah the good old Mayan sacrifice. If you can't work together eat your teammates hearts to become one. it worked out great for Brainiac and Luthor.

@jonsmith: that sounds really good, I'd certainly read it. Course knowing the Marvel editors they'll end this co-existence because they know X-men make the most money when the stories are "they live in a world that hates and fears them!" And every human is unanimous in hating mutants in general. Plus the fact that the majority of the X-men's futures is filled with concentration camps, endangered species, outlaws, and Age of Apocalypse.

I like these ideas.

One of the things that always bothered me about Avengers Academy was that I thought it was a redundant concept in a world where the X-men already train young superheroes to use their powers. To me, the Avengers are the Earth's mightiest heroes, while the X-men has traditionally been as much about being a school as being a superhero team with their own mission.

so, it seems to me that younger characters who are training should do so at the X-men's school, and the Avengers should be the domain of only the more established characters; and I don't think it should matter if those characters are mutants or not in either case.
