Let's say that DC gets historical success with their september reboot and makes Marvel look at their list of titles and say "You know what? We need more diversity in our line too." and use the exact same program as DC.

are you sure you don't mean Brian Vaughan? he's the one who's got all the acclaimed Runaways stories, the only Marvel Brian Wood has ever done was some Generation X for a year

Brian Wood has said that now that his exclusive with DC/Vertigo has expired he will try some mainstream work with Marvel. Runaways seems like the perfect fit for him with DEMO as the perfect example. 
 
Brian K. Vaughan has now left comics for television and movies anyway. Which sucks because I just realized (With Y: The last man and Exmachina) how awesome he really is

ah, okay, just making sure you didn't get them confused

I wasn't aware Vaughan left comics, that's too bad considering he was easily one of the best writers currently in the industry =/

I love Brian Wood, but his specialty is focusing on individual characters, once he gets out of that and tries to work with multiple characters, like an entire team...I don't think he retains his edge...DV8 worked because each issue focused on an individual member but you couldn't do a whole Runaways series only focusing on one character per issue

It wouldn't hurt for Wood to learn a few more tricks. He is easily one of the best writers right now, he only needs to extend his reach a little bit more

Eh... a total redo would suck.  Even if you knew Marvel wasn't going to retcon-palooza like DC.  However, I could definately see a new "wave" of ongoing comics: 
 
1.  Midnight Sons - Marvel's introduced a lot of supernatural mumbo jumbo recently that is kind of cool.  And then there's Marvel Zombies as a possible selling point someplace along the way.  Seems A+. 
 
2.  Runaways - WTF have they been up to? 
 
3.  Young Avengers - WTF have they been doing?  You know, besides... uh... a 7 part miniseries that doesn't feature the title "young" in it?  I mean, seriously, we've had THE INITIATIVE.... WTF can't these guys be trained/on a serious team? 
 
4.  The Initiative - Give me a book that features "random" teams of 5-6 characters in different states, and them working together.  How could this not be good?  Young Blood and all.  You just need to make sure not to retread all the tired old plots.
 
5.  Morlocks - I'm sorry, but there's got to be a few of these guys out there, hiding, in secret.  Yeah, yeah, apparently the Fantastic Four randomly adopted two morlocks recently... but I'm talking about a team of badass Morlocks who are fightning for Survival. 
 
6.  Secret X-men - Basically a new team of young x-men who are a "secret" from everyone else.  IE, X-men without a cast of 200 stuck on an island somewhere. 
 
7.  Marvel Zombies - Okay, so I'm sort of advocating an ongoing, different universe, Marvel Zombies, where the Zombie plague is big, but not "world ends in 24 hours" big.  Basically feature a 616-esque universe that slowly gets torn to pieces when an Infected Scarlet Spider or somebody finds himself in the Florida swamp. 
* A world where the Punisher hates zombies. 
* A world where the "marvels" are often created as a response to Zombies.  Ironman Corps; wtc. 
* A world where Shield nukes american cities.  With good reason. 
 
8.  ARMOR - Reverse Exiles FTW. 
 
9.  eXiles - FTW.  NEW new new NEW new team?  Well, the last exiles book wasn't terrible.... although the idea of an exiles book that used heroes other than just mutants would be pretty cool.
 
10.  Annihilators - Big threats require ongoing supervision. 
 
11.  Guardians of the Galaxy - because 1 space book just isn't enough.  And yeah, I think I'd try to fold the Starjammers in here at some point. 
 
12.  NOVA - 3 ongoing space books might be a bit much, but they'd provide a stable base for another cosmic event.  Which we'd all like to see.

Nice List .  I hope you don't mind me making some comments/suggestions:
 
@War Killer
said:
(NOTE: Some of these were just randomly picked to fill in spaces... :P)

Team Books:

3.        Avengers Academy
5.        Young X-Men – basically the New-X-Men with just a different title
6.        X-Men: Legacy – Featuring the X-Students
8.        Future Foundation (Jonathan Hickman)
12.     Nova Corps


 3.  Avengers Academy really annoys the heck out of me.  I'd much rather have a full-on Initiative variant, and we can keep the same students + add some more.  Preferably get rid of Quicksilver (although it seems that no one wants the character), and other "3rd tier" avengers, and replace them with more solid teachers.  
5.  and 6.  Seem like the same book to me, especially if you're ignoring Hope. 
8.  Well, Fantastic Four.  Although I'd be all for a Future Foundation ongoing alongside the F4, but I don't see that happening. 
12.  GOTG > this.  More to the point, Nova corps just sounds like a NOVA book with a bunch of teams thrown in.  
 
Oh, and no Thunderbolts?  ARMOR?  
 
Also, where's Midnight Sons?  Morbius needs some love.

Single Titles:

13.    Captain America: The Sentinel of Liberty – Featuring Bucky Barnes (Ed Brubaker)
14.    Captain America: Super-Soldier – Featuring Steve Rogers (Ed Brubaker)
19.    Black Widow ( Marjorie Liu)
20.    Hawkeye and Mockingbird (Jim McCann)
22.    The Irredeemable Ant-Man - Featuring Eric O'Grady
26.    Heroes for Hire – Featuring Luke Cage and Iron Fist
29.    Nick Fury: Agent of Nothing
33.    Captain Britain
34.    Nova: The Human Rocket
35.    Silver Surfer
36.    Captain Marvel – Featuring Noh-Varr.
37.    War Machine
38.    The Scarlet Spider – Ben Reilly back from the dead.
39.    Marvelous– Series that would have a different creative team for every arc that would spotlight on different woman from Marvel; preferable a creative team true to whichever female character is being spotlighted that story arc
40.    Front Line – series that gives a glimpse of the Marvel Universe through the eyes of people who live in it every day.
41.    The Black Cat
42.    Doctor Strange: Master of the Mystic Arts
43.    Gravity
44.    The Amazing Spider-Girl – Featuring Araña
45.    NYC: Underworld – Focuses on the different super-villains and criminals who roam the streets of New York.
 13+14 - I'd rather have Bucky be on the "street"/New Avengers, to be honest.  2 Captain America books are too zealous for a character who has barely been able to hold one down. 
19.  Not a fan.  Although I could definately see a spy thriller working - I just think it'd work better as a Nick Furry team book.  Same for 29.  
20.  There's no way this would hold up.  I'd be interested, in theory, but not in practice 
22.  I want Scott Lang to return from the dead.  O'Grady shined for me on the Thunderbolts; I'd like to see him on a team book like that.  
26.  Yuck.  Avengers or bust.  Maybe a Cage + Immortal Iron Fist buddy book though... or a "Marvel 2 in 1" book for them. 
33.  & MI13.    Nuff said. 
34.  Gah!  Nova was a good book, but I don't like the idea of them having some other team book outside of his book - especially since he's trying to put it back together.   Or would be if he wasn't currently erased from existence.
35.  Boring; although with him kind of maybe still w/ Galactus, this could have some interesting plot points. 
36.  Noh-Varr is a no-go for me.  He should be stuck on a team book, and let his pet human girl hang around for fun.  Seems like a good fit for "New Avengers". 
37.  I have never found myself really liking this book over the past decade, so I'd opt out. 
38.  YES!  OH YES! YES YES!  He needs to have a major event return, then he needs to move and be out on his own.  And he can be a member of the westcoast Avengers.  Or whatever.  You know what I mean. 
39.  Insulting to women, I think.  I'd rather see an invisible woman ongoing series, as bizarre as that would be.  Spidergirl "sliding" over to 616 would be a nice touch. 
40.  What - and give up on all of those (mostly bad) tie-ins?  Nah, joking.  A Frontline book might be cool.  But we should probably throw a peter-parker-esque character in there. 
41.  Too much exposure, too little payoff. 
42.  "Strange" would work better, and would free it up to be sort of an anthology series, allowing you to star Dr. Strange most of the time, but deal with other occult stuff occasionally. 
43.  If they could figure out what to do with this character, I'd say YES.  Since they can't, I'd rather have a FIRESTAR book. 
44.  Boring. 
45.  Ugh.  I'd rather see SUPERVILLIAN TEAM UP.  Or Deadpool teamup.  Or Aunt May Team Up.  Hey - those dishes aren't gonna wash themselves mr.

  1. Amazing Spider-man as a monthly (Matt Fraction)

Fraction? Writing Spider-Man? Where the heck did you get that idea? Dan Slott 's been doing great with writing Amazing Spider-Man since Big Time. The series is currently at a real high, why would you change something like that? Plus I really don't think Fraction's writing would suit Spider-Man. Sure he's great at Invincible Iron Man, I love him on that series. I really dig Fear Itself as well. But Dan Slott's the Spider-Man writer to me. I can, however, find peace in the suggestion that it ought to become a monthly again.

@Nighthunter said:

  1. Deadpool (Daniel Way)

Please no more. Daniel Way is effectively slaughtering the character I used to love above all. I really loved the original ( now called Deadpool Classic ) Deadpool series. I loved Cable & Deadpool perhaps even a bit more. And while Daniel Way's Deadpool started out pretty good to me with Secret Invasion and the Bullseye arc, the series really isn't going anywhere anymore. Daniel Way seems to hate character development as there hasn't been any real development so far. All we are given is a long series of surreal gimmicks. Sure I want my Deadpool to be funny, but I want it to be like Cable & Deadpool, or like what Remender is giving us in Uncanny X-Force

On the side: no Venom series by Rick Remender? That 's currently one of the best Marvel books out there if you'd ask me. Remender quickly moved up as one of my favorite writers with his Uncanny X-Force and Venom runs.

Anyway, I really wouldn't enjoy a relaunch of Marvel's books as they did with DC Comics. It would also feel a bit unnecessary, since I feel that Marvel is more accessible than DC. If anything should be copied from their counterpart, it should be the 'Drawing the line'-strategy. Way too many of Marvel's books are being priced at 3.99 USD instead of 2.99 USD. I think a lot of people might be dropping some of the more average ( or even the good ) Marvel books and pick up DC books, simply because of the economical benefits.

Yeah, I tried really hard to get 52... made it to 34 and realized that was the end of my list. At least of the ones I'd buy. There are other obvious inclusions, but not ones I would partake in. So with that in mind:

1. Alpha Flight - Classic team

2. Amazing Spider-Man - Spidey faces his classic villains

3. Astonishing X-Men - Wolverine, Cyclops, rotating cast

4. Captain America

5. Doctor Strange

6. Excalibur - Captain Britain, Nocturne, New British Heroes

7. Generation X - Jubilee, Husk, Chamber, Skin, Stepford Cuckoos, Molly Hayes, Pixie, Dazzler

8. Hercules

9. Incredible Hulk

10. Ka-Zar

11. Magneto

12. Marvel Comics Presents - One shot stories only

13. Mystic Avengers - Doctor Strange, Brother Voodoo, Nico Minoru, Magik, Shaman

14. Mystique

15. Nick Fury

16. Pet Avengers - Ongoing children's title

17. Runaways - Original team returns, Vaughn writes

18. Solo Avengers - Hawkeye, Mockingbird

19. Spectacular Spider-Man - Spidey faces new villains

20. Spider-Man - General book, crossover access point

21. Sword and Shield - Shadowcat, Lockheed, Nick Fury, Beast

22. The Brotherhood of Mutants - Magneto, Toad, Juggernaut, Sabertooth, Blob and Mystique

23. The Savage Land - New characters, Sauron

24. The Secret Wars - Ongoing tales of D list heroes, permanently relegated to the reality of Secret Wars

25. The Thing - Independent

26. Thunderbolts - Dum Dum Dugan, Juggernaut, Taskmaster, Venom, Songbird, Moonstone

27. Uncanny X-Men - Cyclops, Angel, Iceman, Beast, Emma Frost, Colossus, Storm

28. Wolverine

29. X-23

30. X-Factor - Madrox, Layla Miller, Wolfsbane, Strong Guy, Rictor, Siryn

31. X-Force - Wolverine, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Emma Frost, X-23, Shadowcat

35. Fantastic Four

36. Iron Man

37. Thor

38. Daredevil

39. Deadpool

40. Elektra

41. Cloak and Dagger

42. Exiles

43. X-Men Presents

44. Punisher

45. Guardians of the Galaxy

46. Power Pack

47. Villains

48. Ghost Rider

49. Heroes for Hire

50. Nightcrawler

51. Gambit

52. Spider-Girl

I guess I might buy a few of them past #34. But some of those I threw in just to fill the numbers. Oh well. If I ran the Marvel Universe... the company would tank. Granted, you could take my 34 and apply the "New Marvel Method" and turn each of those titles into 2 titles and you'd be just fine meeting 52 of them. With the appropriate creative team though, I'd actually buy the first 34. And if they weren't marked up for limited pages.

52 X-Men books.
#26 Posted by darth_brendroid (1692 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, I dunno about creative teams but if I was involved with slimming down the Marvel books into 52 books that included the option to entice new readership, I'd do something like this:

1. Avengers - Cap, Thor and Iron Man with a rotatable roster with about five other heroes (two at a time); Ms Marvel, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hank Pym (Giant Man/Ant Man on alternate) and Wasp. (storylines should be about them facing big threats against the world - the team should reflect diversity like the Ultimates, but without that same amount of darkness that title had)

2. Captain America (this might alternate between arcs set in the present with new villains and current missions, with single issues inbetween featuring an event from Cap's past in the form of a 'documentary' or some kind of historical source)

3. The Mighty Thor (should probably have a high fantasy vibe, with adventures throughout Asgard/remote places of Earth and facing off against sorcerers and gods and monsters either by himself or with allies. Perhaps single issues scattered about after every arc or two set on Earth with Thor just having a lighter time)

4. The Invincible Iron Man (probably something similar to the movies - those are what really helped push Iron Man into the limelight and if you're re-imagining the line why not take some pieces from what made him mainstream?)

5. Ms Marvel (try and do something with her that doesn't tie her into any other series - she should stand on her own)

6. Black Widow (this would be less of a superhero book and more a spy/action series along the lines of the new Bond films, but perhaps without the same amount of organisation behind her movements)

7. Fantastic Four (perhaps a little bit of Neo-Silver Age stuff with the FF going on adventures or finding themselves with family difficulties and fighting the bad guys as best they can. Not necessarily a kid-tier book, but something anyone can read and enjoy)

8. Amazing Spider-Man (just keep doing the same stuff Dan Slott's currently doing, or the same tone. Spidey's probably Marvel's best known hero, so just try and keep things as accessible as possible and un-caught up in massive events. Probably should have arcs of 3-4 issues)

9. Spectacular Spider-Man (if Amazing Spider-Man has story-arcs, this series should be about the webhead just fighting the bad guys in one-shot issues, maybe teaming up with fellow members of the spider-family as well)

10. Daredevil (a mix of gang and court case story arcs with romantic entanglements and Matt and Foggy just being pals as one-shots inbetween arcs)

11. Uncanny X-Men - Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Kitty Pryde, Colossus, Storm as the main team and the option for Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Beast or Rogue to join them on missions (only two of them join at a time). (Story arcs should be about them involving themselves in tightly political situations and trying to promote tolerance for their people, with single issues slotted in between story arcs to just show the team being friends - playing baseball for instance)

12. New X-Men - Emma Frost, Beast, Xavier and Karma involved with the school, with the teenaged/young adult X-Men characters finding themselves involved in small missions or just hi-jinks at the school (more like Harry Potter-style hi-jinkses though, not Archie-Betty-Veronica hi-jinkses). Perfect way for Marvel to also test out possible replacement members for the main X-Men team. If Beast is involved with the X-Men in a story arc, he shouldn't be involved in the New X-Men series during that time.

13. Deadpool - just Deadpool being Deadpool really, should mostly be an action/comedy series that could partner him up with someone to banter with or just bounce off (like Cable). Stories should probably be short as well.

14. Power Pack - This one should be more kid-friendly, but again the sort of thing anyone can pick up. Should probably have the same tone as the Fantastic Four series, but on more of a kid-scale.

15. Punisher - Basically Frank doing what he does best, but aimed at a more mature audience and trying to get inside his head and understanding what would drive a man to do what he does. Flashbacks into his past could be included as solo issues to provide a bit of a brightness against what should probably be a dark series. By brightness I mean showing what he's lost (his family), not that it should be Frank going to the planet Mars to meet Tim Burton's Martians.

I've intentionally kept it short because I hope Marvel would take the opportunity with 52 new series trying to hook new readers that they'd try new genres and not just their superhero line. Maybe they could have a few more superhero series (no more than 20 I think), but they should also branch out into other genres in order to appeal to a wider variety of audiences. None of those other series should involve superheroes or be explicitly bound to the superhero series, but they'd probably be in the same universe. Just trying new ideas (if they want girls, throw them some series with girls as main characters that don't put them off comics, or throw out war comics or zombie comics in the vein of COD and Left 4 Dead in order to get some of the video gamer crowd of boys - with more meat than those games though). More fantasy titles and sci-fi titles wouldn't go amiss either, but those series should also try shying away from being superhero comics and branch out more into new realms that test the abilities of Marvel's writers to write something in a different genre. Comics aren't just about superheroes - it's an important genre, but nobody's going to have their mind changed unless a company as big as Marvel or DC promotes a large variety of non-superhero comics. These are just my suggestions, of course. *shrug*

2. Avengers (To reintroduce the Major players such as Cap, Iron Man and Thor)

3. X-Men ( To reintroduce mutants)

4. Fantastic 4 ( to reintroduce the cosmic aspects)

5. Spiderman (which would also act as a spring board for other solo heroes)

6. Midnight Sons (to Introduce the magic elements and monsters)

I had to think about this for quite a while, the reboot completely revamps the history which explains my current lack of many X and Avenger titles. I don't have 52 yet, but I'll keep adding to the list as I come up with ideas. Feel free to post comments or constructive criticism.

1. THE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1 (Writer: Jim McCann|Artist: Marc Silvestri) Team: Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Havok, Jean Grey, Angel, Scarlet Witch, Iceman. Professor Xavier and Magneto decide to protect the mutant population, Charles training new mutants at the Xavier Institute and Erik hunting down threats with his X-Force strike force.

7.
