So, I am relatively new to Comic Vine, but not to blogging. I have had a Magic: the Gathering blog with some success for upwards of 6 years and I want to try and continue to provide good content on some of my other hobbies. My comic book knowledge is almost 100% limited to Marvel, of which I have been an avid reader since I was 12 or so. I follow comics almost exclusively online through Marvel Digital Comics and a bit of Wikipedia or other Bio sites, so a lot of my knowledge is a bit out of date. What I prefer to discuss however, is somewhat timeless. I am also a big fan of Green Ronin's Mutants and Masterminds RPG (the second edition, 3rd E is not as good a system)
One of my all time favorite runs was Exiles 1-100, the first series of Exiles books. I love alternate realities and I love obscure characters even more. The fact that Exiles was a series packed with both of these founded my love for it deeply. I wish they would bring it back and do another run a lot like the first one. There are a ton of cool obscure characters and Marvel settings I would love to see pulled from for a new EXiles run. Here are a few Examples:
1. Alleah Bishop - The daughter of Bishop and Deathbird. Pretty cool concept and not much is known about her. Could be a cool character to explore.
2. Electro from the Spectacular Spider-Man TV show. He wasn't really a villain, just misunderstood and his costume/look on the show was super cool. I also think it would be pretty cool to see a comic pull from a universe that was featured in a different media.
3. Strong Guy - Guido is a funny character and comic relief is always welcome on a team. Especially in a reality hopping, high mortality rate team!
4. Leech - An all grown up version of leech showed up on "Phalanxworld' in the early run of Exiles. I would love to see that character developed. Leech has a cool power that isn't common around Marvel. Throw in some hardened combat skills from living on a dangerous planet and you have an interesting character.
5. Trevor Fitzroy - The good Fitzroy from the somewhat recent run of X-Factor would be a cool character to strap a tallius to. He has an unusual powerset that works well with the dimension hopping the exiles do.
6 - Any member of Cadre K - The mutant skrulls that Professor X took under his wing would be a cool to see run around as a main character. I forget which one was the one we have a bit of an Idea what his personality is...I think it was Fiz
