View Full Version : The Nu Marvel 52 (Fantasy Publishing)
Inspired by the Nu DC 52, if you were in charge of Marvel and had to reboot the entire company and put out 52 new #1's (all full series', no mini's) to be the company's only titles what would they be, and who would be the creative team? You can pick anyone that's worked for Marvel, DC, Image, Dark Horse, IDW; you can't put yourself on a book.

Okay gonna give this a whirl. Start of with the obvious ones and then go obscure.
1) Alpha Flight (No Explanation needed)
3) New Warriors (back to the FabNic days)
5) Fantastic Four
7) Iron Man
11) Silver Surfer
12) Marvel Two In One (The Thing &...)
13) Marvel Team Up (Spiderman & ...)
14) Marvel Presents (Tales of the Second Stringers, Jack of Hearts, White Tiger etc)
16) Mutant Tales (Small miny arcs featuring lesser known mutants)
17) Captain Marvel (Tales from before he snuffed it, or after if we want to play the Chaos War card)
18) Doctor Doom
19) Super Villian Team Up
20) Tales of The Watcher (Uatu does Jackanory)

Can't think of 52 things. But I'd like to launch three new titles:
X-Club #1: spinoff of X-Men Science Club featuring Mister Jeffries of course
Beta Flight #1: featuring re-powered former Betans from various incarnations of the team
Fabulous #1: A Team-up book featuring Northstar and Dazzler
and a big L O L on the auto-smiley face for the Doctor Doom title DelBubs listed.

I saw the smiley, realised there would be a lot of editing needed to get rid of it and to satisfy my OCD, So after a great deal of thought, I said sod it and left it there.

Um, Del, your post assumed they'd go for good stuff...
(I've seen people say 'don't use brackets after numbers!' because of that smiley problem.)

I worked from Phil saying if you were in charge of Marvel... If Marvel were in Charge of Marvel it would be Avengers, Dark Avengers, West Coast Avengers, Avengers Part Time, Sunday Avengers etc. X-Men (see above re Avengers). Fantastic Four etc.
As for the numbering bracket issue, I blame Bill Gates.

West Coast Avengers
If it has got at least two of Wonderman, Tigra, Thing, Shroud, Beast, and Moon Knight - sign me up!
I'll take a new Defenders comic as well, one featuring such luminaries as Valkyrie, Gargoyle, Nighthawk, Hellcat, and others (like Iceman and Dr. Druid). Maybe Werewolf By Night and Morbius on the team, as well?
Yes please, I'll take two copies!
