So after Marvel has finished the original story that started over 20 years ago will they integrate him into earth 616 ?
@z3ro180: Personally, a few reasons:
- They had the Sentry, who was very much Superman, and made him a crazy danger to everything, that they finally killed off because they didn't know how to make him fit into the Marvel Universe.
- The Miracleman everyone really wants to see- the version by Neil Gaiman that frustratingly remains out of print- was very much based on DC properties, so he wasn't intended to fit with Marvel. In fact...
- ...Miracleman is the American name of the British Marvelman. Marvelman used to be DC's Captain Marvel, reprinted in the UK. When it came over from the UK, it had to be differentiated from both DC & Marvel's Captain Marvels, so it became Miracleman.
- It's just too different of a property. At best, this should be an Icon title that Gaiman gets to run with again. How would they integrate Miracleman into the Marvel U? Where would he fall in the pyramid of characters? I can't see him being treated as anything more than a visitor to the Marvel U. Think Milestone characters at DC, for how that's likely to work. Or worse, Red Circle characters at DC.
