The Marvel heroes win the day in the Secret Wars.

The fully restored Captain America (Steve Rogers) assembles Thor, a contrite Iron Man, Clint Barton (who re-dons his Hawkeye guise for the mission) and Vision, to rescue Hank Pym and Janet, Wanda and Pietro (who were abducted and replaced at times prior to their worst behavior).

They return home to the Stark financed rebuilt Avengers Mansion. Captain America, Thor, IronMan, Hawkeye, Vision, (the unblemished) Giant Man, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver. They are greeted by Jarvis and many other Avengers.

That'd be cool.

Um, no. That would be a '50s Capra ending. It would be warm.

You know, every once in a while a nice happy ending is deserved...especially after so many monumentally downer and dangler-filled endings suffered by the Avengers and others in virtually every recent Marvel event or crossover (Annihilation 1 was probably the "happiest" - also probably the best).

Obviously this poster's example goes a little far with that idea - it is, after all, his "fantasy" - but the occasional happy ending goes a long way (for one thing, to prove that hero-work actually makes some positive difference, rather than just making the world a worse and more complicated place).

I couldn't agree more. It hasn't been done in so long that's it'd almost be a shock, kind of a catch 22? No that's not the phrase I'm looking for, but how bout the good guys just win this one? It's like the one time it wouldn't be cheezy, simply because if for nothing the brilliant complication of the story layout and how grim everything appears.

Although we all know that probably won't happen.

But if it does:

I'd just like to Captain Marvel, Steve Rogers, and (insert your fave or faves here) be in that "number". (Saints go marching in reference, ah nevermind...lol)

I don't care what anybody says publicly, as comic book superhero fans, we'd all secretly cheer.
