I'm excited but only because I'm a nerd for alternate timelines (Marvel, if you're reading this, bring back "What If...?")

Also, while DC can't wait for their next editorial reboot, I wouldn't mind Marvel giving it a shot as half the flagship heroes in the Marvel U are responsible for the destruction of multiple planets at this point.

If that's what they're playing at, then fine by me.

@angelusalvus: Right. And crossovers and events used to be so rare in comparison that when something like, say, Onslaught came along, you kind of wanted to buy at least some of the other titles. But a story like Axis hasn't been fulfilling to read because so much of the story and character arcs are appearing in other titles.

@darthmummy: Mostly yes. He's always been a bit unfaithful, so there's that. Really any psychic chick who shows any interest in him and he's all "Jean who?"

But turning him into Magneto-lite certainly made little sense to me.

Okay, Viners, time to nerd-ercise! If DC and Marvel were to merge and start their combined universe from the ground up, who would you keep and who would you cut? Ask yourself, does this new universe NEED a Superman and a Hulk? Ir a Green Arrow and a Hawkeye? Who is a must have in this fantasy sandbox?

Extra credit for a the mange of this new comics conglomerate.

Easy. Zzzax. I know, but hear me out. If you mod Big Z's powers to absorb gamma, it'd be cool to see him force the transformation from Hulk to Banner, leading to Banner temporarily thinking he's cured, but inevitably coming to grips with the fact that the Hulk will be part of him forever. We'd get to see Banner being Banner and devising some super-McGuffin to limit Zzax's ability to drain gamma, so he can Hulk ut and fight him. Also, this way you can plant an end credit sequence with the Leader showing how he engineered the whole thing to try and remove the Hulk, sinisterly remarking how he now realizes the true threat is Banner, leading to your third film.

It would be a bit goofy and you'd have to play Zzzax's name off as a joke, but it's an opponent that Hulk can't just beat into submission and gives Banner/Hulk a chance to see Zzzax as everyone sees him--a terrifying, uncontrollable force of nature.

Hilarious!

@ruler: I'd say that's a pretty good list of people who are morally ambiguous. Most of them (minus Frost and Rulk) started off with a very high moral standards, but as writers would have it they either had skeletons in their closet or (in the case of Reed and Tony) have been actively bastardized by more current Marvel writers. Either way, not a bad list.

@phisigmatau: Yeah, but the guy who did the ravaging probably isn't as torn up about it, hence subjectivity. Plus, really dude? Gotta play the rape card?

@tyger: My nerd-sense tells me that Iron Man v Cap in the Civil War event, Cap and Tony butting heads in the movie, and Cap's "that's not freedom, that's fear" line are all recipes for that confrontation Tay existed before or concurrently with the development of Batman v Superman: Let's Get Tacos.

Sadly...my cynic senses are reminding me that these movies are coming out in the same year. Sigh.
