Not that anyone will read this but...

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online through Marvel Digital Comics and a bit of Wikipedia or other Bio sites, so a lot of my knowledge is a bit out of date.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

There also was an older version of Leech in some Wolverine story that took place in DoFP timeline and I liked him and  I'd like to see an older version of him appearing in some book too. I haven't read any of the Exiles comics due to not having a chance since in my country they only reprint one X-Men comic that usually features stories of only a bout  main X-Men and very little about any of the satellite titles but based on summaries and bios that I've read online I have some sense of what those stories were about and I really liked them mostly because they had Mimic as a main character...

Some good ideas you have here, I hope someday you or some else can put these in something!

@Tommy_X: Yup, the adventures of Leech aren't over yet!

I remember that story...wasn't it Milenial Visions or something...haven't read it but I REALLY want to. Leech has an awesome unique power and needs some more love.

I highly suggest the Exiles books if you can get a hold of them. If you sibscribe to marvel Digital comics (which I also love) most of the 100 issue first volume of Exiles is available there. One of the neatest concepts Marvel has ever rolled out. Obscure characters, Interdimensional Travel....everything a comic geek could ever want!
