So, I`m going to become a professional comics maker some day. Maybe not full-time (hopefully I shall), but a pro (of some sort) at the field, anyhow.
And, as a future maker of comics, I have a list of comics I`d like to make. Some of them have my own characters, and are, therefore, a bit easier to make. Some of them have characters, owned by other publishers, who wont let me make stories of them, if I don`t give a piece of my soul to them in return.
One of these publishers is MARVEL. I shall tell you now, who of their characters I`d like to use in stories. And thats not all! I`ll even put the issues in to chronological order that I`d wanna make them in! And I`l tell bit of the stories I`d wanna make! Anyways, here we go!
Three issues of Amazing Spider-man.
I`d make a fun (even comedic) Spidey-story.
Four Fantastic four annuals.
44 pages of story per each and I could do whatever I`d want.
A 41 issue limited series, that showcases different characters, who have adventures in reast of the MARVEL 616-cosmos! Maybe even in other MARVEL-cosmoses. Stars, for example:
Silver surfer (one of my faf characters), Thanos, Galactus, Warlock (maybe), Rocket raccoon, Captain universe (Bonds with one obscure character at a time. Right now I`m thinking D-man, Rocket Raccoon, Howard the duck and star fox. And some superpowerful person.), Skrulls, Kree, new characters, Dr. Strange (Why not? He could totally have a few adventures in space.), High evolutionary, Shi`ar, Watcher and Recorder, Some gods, Celestials, Quasar, Nova...
It would have such villains as Overmind, Annihilus, Dr. Doom, Thanos, some new villains, In-betweener (who is either seriously under rated, or unbeliavably weak cosmic villain), Loki (maybe), Mephisto, Blackheart, Dormammu, Ego, Korvac (maybe), Adversary (maybe), Hunger...
And the following characters (among other ones) would make guest appearances: Future foundation, Fantastic four, Spider-man, Avengers, One above all, Eternity, Chaos and Order, Living tribunal, Death, Roma, Merlyn (Who should`ve stayed dead, because he was killed by ALAN MOORE. Therefore, I might not use him after all, simply because I think that he should be dead.), The collector, The Uranian, Champion...
They would have independent stories, and then, there`d be a 8-15 part story which would unite them all (or some of them, but it would have guest appearances by all the characters, who have appeared in the series). And then they`d...do stuff. The series would be concluded. Or, it would be continued by someone else. But, I`d rather not create a new status quo at the end of my story. SO, if I`d have my way, the series would end, and after a few months, or a year, there`d be a different series about cosmic MARVEL-characters. Or many series. I CAN dream, right?
The first and the last issue would both be 50 pages long.
It would have 4 annuals.
Not kidding. It would be a...lets say 30 issue run (or limited series) that would re-establish D-man. Maybe the main theme, would be him trying to become a respected superhero. Has obscure, and not that obscure characters. For example, Answer as a supporting character. Not necessarily his friend, though. Not all the time, at least. Would also create new characters.
Separate it from Fantastic four and get them save and the world from Stranger and the future from Tiboro. Without that much time traveling. Has new and old characters. For example, the ever loving D-man! No, not finished with him yet. My run would last for 20 issues.
X-men graphic/comic novel.
Free hands. Meaning: I can do whatever I want. I`d use my faf X-characters, have them face some kinda crisis (maybe a small one), throw in some wild, crazy stuff and point out what are their most essential aspects. Well, in my opinion. Maybe 100-150 pages.
5 issues of What if-mag.
I`d wanna go crazy. 40 pages per issue.
Tells of the life of the Pym-family. Meaning: Janet Pym, Hank Pym, Hanks superhero successors, Ultrons, The Pyms families (Meaning, of course, their fathers, mothers etc. Naturally, some of them are dead.), their friends and other enemies. Would take an approach, similar to the current Hawkman-series.
For how long I`d wanna do this...Maybe two-fife years. I have no idea. I`m not gonna make it. Sniff.
So, does anyone else wanna see more of the stars of MARVELs 1602? I would. I`d make the stories for the series, for 12 issues, possibly. Then other people could take the wheel, and would (hopefully) have the sense to finish it some day. Not milk it out for eternity. Just think of the possibilities.
Neil Gaiman wrote this for less than a year, set up a new status quo for the characters, and left. That was stupid. But, I could finish the series. Would have hundreds of characters. Or dozens. Would be epic. Would last for 40-50 issues.
EDIT: I wouldn`t make Eternals- or The 17. century-series, after all. I`d use characters from both, though.
An 8-issue miniseries. I have a pretty good idea for a story, too.
Whatever I wanna do.
An issue of Hulk, Punisher, She-hulk...Whatever I`d wanna make. I`d say that I would wanna make about...12 issues.
A three or four issue mini. Have a good idea for this one, too.
Maybe I wouldn`t make this many stories. But, I`m pretty sure that this is the amount that`s pretty close.
There will also be a DC-edition of this same subject, soon.
