Be prepared for a bunch of captioned letters.
Adam Allen and The Question from Pax Americana. Characters who interest me, who I`d like to see in an ongoing. But I don`t care about their world. What I`d want, would be to find stories from other, smaller companies, who have characters like them, and the characters in question, have more adventures.
As expected, they`re similar to my faf characters from Watchmen. And I think the same way about them, too.
I wonder if Steve Ditkos self published comics would fill The Question-void*? Of course, I could also read Ditkos The Q-stories, but they`re neither in cellulose print or Digital comic museum.
Earth 3. The classic. Topsy turvy world where villains are heroes. We haven`t seen much of it.
I wanna see a heroic Starro, the starfish species. Solaris, the superhero sun. OMAC, the war criminal.
I understood something. If one wants to have a DC hero be an absolute a-hole...why not have the story happen in this particular Earth?
Earth 6. It`s description: On this world, Superman is a castaway cosmic cop from the Planet Krypton. Wonder woman wields the senses-sundering celestial staff of Manco Capac, the Inca Sun God, while the glistening Green Lantern channels the peerless power of the wondrous World Tree Yggdrasil against the villainous Reverend Darrk!
Mythology of DC-universe interlocked with ancient gods. I wonder: What obscure characters would shine here...?
Also, Green lantern, out of the characters mentioned, interests me the most.
Earth 11. The radical Feminist DC-earth. Themysciran amazons "imposed their law on the whole world, and changed it forever, inspiring generations of women to take lead in creating the future." All the time people are RIGHTFULLY complaining about the violent mistreatment of female characters in (far too many) superhero comics. I haven`t, thankfully, read any of those comics.
Guess what would be cool? If feminists would write about this universe. Sounds like a given. But the folks with the most authority don`t really understand simple truths. Do they now? So...I suppose we`d need to say f*** DC, and let`s follow some feminist superheroes from other companies. Do you say: "There aren`t any."
Of course there are. They just have an audience of 15-50 people, opposed to that of tens of thousands.
Oh right. This is me making fantasies. So, in that case, nobody screws it up.
Earth 13. Dark Magic-Earth. But, who says other kinda M can`t exist there? I want ALL, ALL, ALL the magical prota-and antagonists of the company reside here. Who needs Justice league dark, when you can have an ENTIRE, UNIVERSE?
Earth 16. The superficial earth. A prose-superhero soap opera series would be great. Of course, it would also include illustrations.
Or, if someone WHO IS ABLE TO DRAW EXPRESSIONS TO CHARACTERS FACES, would get the job of the visual artist for the series, I wouldn`t mind it being drawn.
But exressionlessness is also elemental to some vague, "feelingless" characters.
Earth 17. Classical Science fiction Earth. I don`t much care, but it has loads of potential. 3-5 interlocked limited (50 issue) series. Get nothing but the essence. Make art.
Earth 18. All those Elseworlds-tales about western heroes may have happened here. Most of the western heroes of DC may reside here.
But I`m supposing we wont know, because...
Why would anyone want to write about a fresh, gripping universe well drenched in to beloved mythology, of the (80 % fictional) Wild west? One could have tributes to Lucky Luke, Clint Eastwood, slapstick westerns...All the while making NEW stories.
You could get 100-200 issues outta this, easy.
19. Steampunk earth.
22. I dislike Kingdom come. But It has a few interesting unexplored territories. Like the Cathedral and The flash protected Keystone city.
Earth 31. Are those a Steampunk cyborg and a Feudal-era Green lantern, who I see? Of course they are! Description of the Earth: Global warming, mega-tsunamis and tectonic shifts have created a drowned world. Captain leatherwing and the crew of the flying fox-including Robin Redblade-fight to preserve the safety of the seven seas.
32. Composite versions of superheroes. Super-martian, Aquaflash etc.
How about mixing characters like...Planet master and Fisherman (The fisher of planets), Solaris the tyrant sun and mirror master (Solaris, the master of tyrant mirrors), Clock king and Deadman (The corpse of Clock king)...
47. Psychedelic, groovy Earth. Prez Rickards home. I love it. I want to see a completely mad 200-issue miniseries right now. Hell. I wanna write it. For a year, or less (I have other fishers to fry). Draw a few issues. And get steady income of it.
48. Nothing but supercharacters. A concept that needs more examining.
Of course, there`s dozens of other deserving elseworlds-stories, that Morrison forgot (the ones he included, most don`t catch my interest).
Not only that, he crafted this multiverse, while keeping the story he was making, in mind.
7 of the earths are kept in utter secret (and aren`t utilized during the event), one is the home of Ultracomics, 2 are homages to Marvel-universe 616 and 4 are homages to homages.
Oh, and one was destroyed by Superman prime. Which means, it oughta be repopulated.
On a lighter note, Earth 45 is a fairly clean slate.
DC-multiverse has never been just 52 worlds in size.
Most of the elseworlds stories though, could have be happened in those 52 earths. Most of the not yet created ones, could.
Anyway, enuff day dreaming for me. I oughta continue with creating a coherent, wonderful planet full of wonderful, original characters.
Because I`ve grown to dislike DC. A sickeningly overcrowded stable of characters and concepts. Only 3 % of them used effectively. Overtly used. Especially the boring ones. With what, the same stories are told.
GL-corps is a perfect summarization of the DC-universe(s).
Bad thing is, there`s already too much to read. So, were they to come up with the series I want, I would not wanna read them. Overpowering.
Oh, and it would clash with my other philosophies. For example, my desire to have nobody work for DC or Marvel ever again.
Therefore: All be released for public domain!
That way, I could write official stories `bout Htrae and Steampunk Metal men. If I`d have the energy and the time.
23: I like ridiculously smart and able presidents more than I expected.
Because most of the ones in our world, let the 99 %* down.
*I don`t care if you`re tired with that usage of that number. It`s one of the terms that define the 2010s, and also a truthful estimation.
