Okay, I was dissappointed with this story arc as it seems a lot of you were and it got me to thinking: this could have made an awesome fighting video game.
First, the characters are all street level heroes. The only characters that would need to be powered down somewhat would be Ghost Rider and Luke Cage, even then they don't need to be depowered that much. Since they all have relatively down to earth powers, you could have meters to determine battles. Health (once it's depleted the character loses) Power/Chi (built up through giving and receiving damage, has a four tiers [a la Star Wars MAsters of Teras Kasi for those who remember] , used to unleash special attacks depending on how many tiers you have eg. Spider-Man can use crazy web attacks, Iron Fist can use his... Iron Fist, Ghost Rider can unleash hellfire and chains. The last meter would be Stamina; it drains as you block or 'button mash.' The lower it is the less you can block and get knocked back.
Each character could specialize in differant styles. Heavier characters (Cage, Ghost Rider) have better stamina and can withstand more damage, lighter characters (Iron Fist, Colleen Wing) can dodge better and their Chi meter charges quicker, etc.
Second, The entire arc plays like a video game: start with a few characters (Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Shang-Chi) trying to figure out a mystery, slowly introduce more characters as new fights (Bullseye, Misty Knight, Colleen Wing, Elektra) a meeting with Daredevil and after defeating him once he transforms into his demon form.
Even the stages are easy, think of all the iconic New york stages you could have. Roof top, Inside the Kingpins office, in the Shadowland depths and the upper levels, on the streets of hell's kitchen
Third, background characters as "assists," Hand Ninjas (come in and add to a string of combos), Shroud (the character who calls on him and the rest of the stage become all black except for the enemy fighter), Punisher (a hail of machine gun fire and grenades)
LAstly, this would work because it WOULDN'T BE CANON!
anyway, what do you guys think.
