Basically the idea is for a group of writers here on the vine to completely reinvent marvel characters with only their superhero name to start off. You will then have to decide what their secret identity is and generally flesh out their background. these characters will all be in the same universe. If you are going to use another character in your story that someone else has already picked to write you should ask them what they're doing with the character, for example you can't have nick fury appear in your wolverine story set in 1945 when the writer of nick fury wants him to be 15. We'll all work out the main layout of this earth and then our stories will go from there. Still interested? If yes, have a think about which character from the list below you would like to write then post it here, if you're the first one to tax that character it's your project. If you think about quitting, let us know so we/you can pass the story on to another writer or finish the series. Can be written any you want, whether as a script or a story.

**NOTE** Avengers are not being used right now, waiting for other writers to establish characters first. **NOTE**

Character's in this universe: (any other characters [not teams] you want to write let me know)

SUGGEST A CHARACTER. If taken, we'll let you know. Full list of character's taken will be posted later

This is interesting. I already have an idea for the Wolverine story. I made a post on this about the Marvel M storyline a while back. Here's one example.
 
Project X: The Birth of Wolverine

In an alternate reality, Wolverine was never born a mutant. However, he was drafted into the version of Weapon X called Project X. Project X gave Wolverine the same abilities such as healing factor, adamantium claws, and heightened senses. Due to the dangerous experiment, Logan went berserk and escapes from the Project X facility.

I'm not good with dialog so I'll just lay out my ideas 
 X-men Professor X  Summers brothers each living as orphans they were the Survivors of a plane crash, their parents were assumed dead but no bodies had ever been recovered, Scott the oldest had been injured in the crash due to being in the plane when it hit the ground, Alex the second oldest along with their infant brother Gabriel had been tossed out of the plane with the only parachute by Scott, Scott spent a year in a coma in which time Alex had been sent to live with a foster family in Hawaii while the baby Gabriel had been adopted by a Dr. named Essex, Scott was roused from his coma when his powers emerged and Professor Charles Xavier just happened to be at the hospital visiting a friend at the time so he took the boy in and gave him his ruby quartz visor, Alex's foster family had kicked him out due to his powers and Xavier managed to adopt him along with Scott and made them the first students at his school for gifted youngsters, the rest of the original class is filled out by Henry McCoy who was born looking like an ape but possesses genius level intellect, Jean Grey who possesses telepathy and telekinesis just like the Professor (I'm making Xavier a telekenitic too), Warren Worthington III who had been disowned by his wealthy family when his wings grew out, and Bobby Drake who had been thrown out of his home town because his powers had kept the place at almost sub zero temperatures and finally young Gabriel whose adoptive father claimed he felt he should have a relationship with his 2 older brothers on the team though in reality he had placed the boy at the school to keep tabs on them for an unseen employer.

I'll put my name down for Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom if that's cool.

An very interesting idea. I wouldn't mind jumping in on this, but I don't think my writing skills would be up to the task for most of the big names. I'd be worried I wouldn't be able to do them justice. Now if you were willing to open up some minor characters or villains to get a re-tooled, that would be awesome!

The story is two months after his debut. he's a mutant. Has a history with bushman. thinks hes cap, spidey, and wolverine, knows he crazy, and picks which one he is. That different enough?

@CapFanboy: Two initially come to mind - Venom and Blackheart. 
 
Venom I would like to reinvent completely independent from his current Spidey ties. Image if Eddie acquired the symbiote via completely different means. What would be the relationship between Eddie and the symbiote without their mutual hate of Peter Parker? What sort of powers would Venom possess without being 'modeled' after Spider-man's set? Would he be a hero or villain? These are the kind of possibilities I'd like to explore. 
 
Blackheart I'd like to re-write with similar origins, but that's about it. I'd like to make him a force to be reckoned with and not such the tool that he is now. =P In fact, I'm picturing a tie-in with with a re-vamped Ghost Rider... Stay with me here. I'm picturing a coup in Mephisto's realm where Blackheart manages to form an alliance with Ghost Rider (here Johnny is more violent/a bastard then his current self and the Spirit of Vengeance pushed him over the edge toward villain rather then hero) and the two take out Mephisto permanently. Blackheart now rules over the realm with Ghost Rider becoming his herald. Blackheart would take a more involved role on Earth (more akin to how Loki pokes his nose into everyone's business) in a bid to eventually take over, using Ghost Rider to take out any competition. 
 
Thoughts?

I have no problem with writing Venom, so you can do that by all means. It sounds like an interesting read however I'd like to hold off on all the demons and off world characters other than Thor. But iof this does well we can always expand into ghost rider territory and you can write blackheart.

@joshmightbe: I can help you with the dialog. I'm pretty much good at it since I have been writing the Freaks series for a while. But I don't know if I can help since my schedule is a stampede nowadays. The X-Men series is already been taken by the user, Avenging X-Bolt. Maybe, you could work with him. Or you should talk to CapFanboy about it.
