What would you do? Thanks.
@explodingpineapple: Did you see that link I posted on your "Cap's fighting skill" thread? Majority of Viners here say Batman is the more skilled martial artist. I equalized Cap's stats to that of Batman's but they retain their own collective muscle memory.
- End the Schism between Scott and Logan
- Have Scott and Logan step down as co-leaders of the X-Men and let some of the other older-younger X-Men who were supposedly groomed to eventually lead the X-Men finally lead
- Keep characters on one team at a time and not have them on every other team
- Uncancel Scarlet Spider and Venom
- Let younger characters slowly take the places of certain characters they were supposed to replace
- Bring shelved characters back into world and put them where they could be useful
LOL. I would make the worst decisions for the company. I would play favorites so hard it wouldn't even be funny.
Peter Parker comes back. Also in later arcs solidifies a spot on the "top ten most intelligent in Marvel" list, and gets his "Other" upgrades back. (And here is your first sign that I will play favorites hard).
Jobber villains with potential get more competent. Taskmaster, Shocker, Sandman, stuff like that. They stop jobbing as much and heroes have to stop relying on plot.
Taskmaster gets UDON suit all the time and can remember explicit memories at random times.
Black Tarantula gets some love.
Black Bolt and Hyperion get cemented on the elite top tier of Marvel powerhouses (mainly by beating other ones up. Sorry, Thor). Also, Hercules gets back there and uses his gear/skills all the time. And Black Bolt slaps Namor around just 4 teh lulz. And Hercules slaps Hulk around just 4 teh lulz.
The Illuminati and every screw up they've made get uncovered by Wolverine and Spider-man (Peter) and nobody likes them anymore (for like, 4 issues, like the Civil War).
Completely unlicensed appearances by DC heroes.
Flash Thompson keeps Venom/Peter and he find out about each other.
Wolverine, Spider-man, X-23, and Kaine all get an ongoing.
Bring back Sarah Stacy.
Completely unlicensed and non-canon weird crossover thing with Star Wars. Just to get it out of my system.
Star Wars beats up Star Trek in an epic mini. Then beats up the Halo Universe for fun.
Another reduction on mutants, and only a few former X-men still have powers - NOT the vast majority. Start over fresh with the X-teams, don't put so much focus on "extinction," because that's sh*t. They were no more going extinct than starting over again as a species. Granted, they were being hunted, but still (I know this isn't an actual point, please don't correct me on this).
AvX didn't happen and Cyclops goes back to being somewhat human.
Wolverine and Cyclops have a chugging contest and all is well between them/everyone else.
Storm gets put back into a reasonable place. Reasonable is defined by me.
Deadpool goes back to being an actual character and not a joke. Also he dies and Death doesn't want him yet, so he goes back.
Dr. Doom beats up every other villain and is unarguably re-established as THE villain.
Completely unlicensed appearances by various fantasy movie/book characters. But as minor cameos, so you won't know unless you look really hard.
And I'm not even done yet. Point is, don't give me power. Marvel will become a fanfiction. If you only want the serious changes, though:
- Peter comes back, Flash Thompson and he find out about the others' hero lives and be good friends again.
- Less jobbing by good villains. Taskmaster, Shocker, Electro, stuff like that. They get more competent.
- Black Bolt and Hercules remind everyone why they're powerhouses.
- The Illuminati and their screw-ups get found out and nobody trusts them for a while.
- Throw out AvX. End Schism. Less X-teams and lots of new mutants.
I. Lower the prices of comicd that ate available online/comixology/whatever.
II. Speed up the process of Peter coming back so that the fangirls can STFU.
III. Create a 616 Myles Morales. I won't give him a series, I'll just let everyone know there's a 616 version too.
IV. Bring the "real" Jean Grey back. I can never understand how the "real" one hasn't came back yet.
VI. Put the finally returned "real" Jean Grey and Logan together so we can finally see how they are as a couple and not a Stalker & Succubus they were before.
VII. Fix Hope and then let her fade to obscurity. Yeah... I'm like that.
VIII. Put gay Howlett in a team.
IX. Make a crossover where Jimmy Hudson meets X-23 and Daken. However, in the end they have no memory of the event. I love that excuse.
X.Give this Future X-Men from Battle of the Atom a limited series.
XI. Give Doctor Strange a series where he trains Brother Voodoo and they're like the Magical Watson and Sherlock Holmes.
XII. I'm having fun with this screw y'all if you take it too seriously.
XIII. Buy Valiant comics and use them like DC uses Vertigo.
XIV. Give T'Challa a solid team to make a solid series.
At the moment I'd say Rick Remender with Jerome Opeña or David Aja.
Reboot the universe, I'm serious, way too many references to past events and characters that new readers won't know about. I'm not a huge X-Men fan, and my friend (who's been reading X-Men for decades) tried to explain it...I instantly got lost in their loooooong history.
