With all the new Marvel Fairy Tales that are now being written, I began wondering what other types of Marvel Fairy Tales could be written with the existing Marvel characters. For this thread, post your tales, your cast list, and a brief plot treatment.
-The 12 Labors of Hulkules:
Hercules was the strongest hero in all of Greek myth. So who better to take the role than the strongest character in the Marvel Universe, the Hulk?
The world needs a champion against the monstrous Abomination that threatens to overthrow the gods and consume the world in eternal darkness. To that end, the mighty Lord Ross, ruler of the gods proposes a desperate gambit-to imbue a mortal man with the spirit of the great warrior god Gamma, to combine the greatest attributes of man and mortal, and put him through a series of trials to create the greatest and finest warrior the world has ever seen, one who will be able to stand against the Abominations. Samson, the god of wisdom, protests against this enslaving of a mortal man, of usurping his life for the gods' own ends, and in punishment Lord Ross exiles Samson and banishes him from heaven, to be tormented ever more by thunderbolts.
The mortal man Bruce, a gifted, peace-loving man of science, and prince of the kingdom of Banner, finds himself imbued with the frightening power and strength of the warrior god Gamma. Gamma compels him to murder his beloved Elizabeth, as well as his own parents, in a fit of rage. Bruce's wicked uncle Brian seizes the throne that rightfully belongs to Bruce, and cruelly tasks him with undertaking twelve great tasks to atone for his crimes, of which he is innocent and yet guilty.
Banished from his home, Bruce struggles against the monstrous urges of the warrior spirit within him, even as he is dependent on that same power to battle the horrific monsters against which the usurper Brian sends him. But above and beyond his inner turmoil, there rises a deep anger...one against the usurper who took his rightful heritage away from him, and now treats him like a slave, and of the god who cursed him with this monstrous form, doomed to wander as an exile, never again to know peace so long as he is shackled to the monster within.
As the final battle with the Abomination draws near, can even the gods stand against the being they have created, imbued with the power of the greatest of warriors, and the anger of the mortal man who they have seized for their own ends?
In this version of the myth, obviously the Hulk plays Hercules, with the Hulk symbolizing his connection to the divine, which was the source of Hercules's strength in the original myths (IOW, he was the son of Zeus). Brian Banner plays Eurystheus, the jealous, spiteful coward who usurped Hercules's rightful place as king of Argolis and set Hercules on the Twelve Labors. The Abomination plays the role of the Titans, the beings that threatened to destroy the gods of Olympus and who could only be slain by a mortal man, in this case Hercules/the Hulk. Doc Samson plays Prometheus, the god who rebelled against Zeus and suffered for it until he was freed by Heracles. "Thunderbolt" Ross, appropriately enough, plays the role of Zeus.

It was recently revealed that Herc did not clean the stables in one night but rather he was there when Gilgamesh the Forgotten One did and he just took the credit

Captain America in the Odyssey. Both stories take place after a war, and are about a man getting lost at sea for many years, trying to make his way home. Cap would be the main hero Odysseus, while the Masters of Evil would be the primary villains.
Cap as Odysseus
Enchantress as Calypso or Circe
Bucky as Telemachus
Nick Fury as Athena
Baron Zemo as Poseidon
Goliaht/Atlas/Powerman as Polyphemus
The X-Men in the Wizard of Oz. Would be similar to the stories of when Kitty Pride first joined the X-Men. I tried to be ironic in my roles for the scarecrow, tinman and lion, since those characters normally already have the characteristics (in the regular continuity) that they seek in the story. (Wolverine is already brave, Colossus is already loving, and Nightcrawler is already smart)
Shadowcat as Dorothy
Lockheed as Toto
Nightcrawler as a Scarecrow
Colossus as the Tin Man
Wolverine as the Lion
Storm as the Good Witch
White Queen as the Wicked Witch
Professor X as the Wizard
X-Babies as the Munchins
Hellfire Guards or Sentinels as the Flying Monkeys

That is a really cool idea. First it just brought a smile to my face, but the more I think about it, the more I think that this would really work and the kids who read the Marvel Kids comics would get a kick out of reading it. This would be fun.
made me think of things I liked as a kid with mutant replacements.
Its the 23rd century. All people are born genetically bred mutants by the city's computer Cerebra. All pleasure is yours for the taking. The only catch. You die at the age of 21 (and the city recycles your powers to the newborn citizen.)
Logan-5 is one of DS-Men (get it? 'DS-men/The X-Men'). The police who pursue 'runners' (the mutants who don't want to obey society and surrender their powers back to Cerebra).
Cerebra sends Logan undercover to infiltrate the runners and discover their base called Sanctuary. Logan meets Jessica (Drew) and becomes a runner alongside her, rebelling against city and society to make the world a better place to live in (or legally buy a beer).
Pursued outside the city by Francis (Sabretooth). A former partner of Logan's, who thinks he has betrayed the good guys. Logan & Jessica find the remains of New York City and a little further upstate a very old man living in the remains of what looks like an institute.
His name is James Howlett, and he is the oldest man they've ever seen.
After a battle that ends with Francis' death, who had caught up to them, the old man tells Logan and Jessica about the past and how mutants eventually attained a harmonious existence by the end of the twenty-first century and lived out their days in a peaceful co-existence with their human cousins.
They all agree to return to the domed city with James Howlett as proof, and put an end to Cerebras control over the mutants.
And they all lived to be ripe old ages, happily ever after...
...well that is until the Apocalypse came. But thats a story for another time.
With all the sex scenes Hank Pym has had over the past few years, you think Pym Particles are the main ingridiant of Viagra in the 616?
