I am not sure if this would work or if it'd be all typos. I downloaded the newest IE version and everything here is too tiny to read.

This box is postage stamp sized to me.

But here it is, what character or team would you bring back and how would you bring them back?

I'd bring back New Warriors using the team in Avengers the Initiative as well as the mysterious return of a few old members and a few new joining.

I would start with the survivors (justice, ultra girl, slapstick, debrii, rage, darnell thrasher). finding a "new crash pad" This crashpad was a well stocked resistence safehouse used during the civil war which has later became an unofficial neutral ground between pro and anti reg heros where they can crash if needed.

Among the heros here (who would be NW reserves) would be Gibbon and Jolt (who is slowllosing her energy form and returning to her original powers) and silouette.

To add to the confusion the original night thrasher (dwaybne), speedball (not penance or monkey), an both return.

Nova also stops by but only as a reserve as he is mainly A space hero now.

But a remaining mystery abounds about why they returned, and who the new speedball is, through this these NW get funding from atlantis who wants them to find namorita.
Bickering starts between the two thrashes but a threat happens to unite them, perhaps one of the most inept new warriors ever returns as one of the greatests threats they'd ever face. Microbe returns as a entity spawned from bacteria. You see their are more bacterial cells in your body than human ones and his dying wish was to will him to live. Bacteria can trade genes among themselves and started absorbing his genes to build a new microbe, seeing the horros of experiencing his body decaying and hearing everyone hate the new warriors lead microbe to shed his nice gtuy holding back and to start absorbing the worst germs ever into his bacterial body. he now thinks the only hope for life on earth is to wipe out eukaryotes and have life reevolve from bacteria. No longer is he helpless against foes, he can command the very ecoli in your guts to kill you.

Their is another villain too, one in the background manipulatying things. Kang who has taken speedball and thrash out of time from just before the standford blast. Why? to save his own life. When wanda said "no more mutants" at the end of hose of M it removed all futures with mutants except too. Kangs future had mutants in it. This essentially killed kang before he was born except for one thing, kang set up an emergency isolation chamber outside of time for cases like this but he is stuvk here manipulating things subtly until time is fixed, and he is manipulating the new warriors hoping to get them to act in such a way that may fix time... iif only he can find timneslip.... then he'd be ready

I'd bring back a character AND a team:

Darkstar returns in... THE NEW CHAMPIONS (I would first crush Hero Games and get the rights to the name back *gigiddy*).




City of Heroes is BACK!

Me? Teamwise, I'd love to see the West Coast Avengers reunite. (It's why I'm so excited about their upcoming reunion in War Machine!) I'd also love to see Dr. Druid come back from the dead, via mystical means.

...I liked that title back in the day. Now, practically all of them have been killed off or are in limbo, Jubilee, Banshee, especially Skin, as a Hispanic guy it is kind of cool for me to see Hispanic superheroes from time to time, and then I had to put up w/ Skin getting killed off by a guy who couldn't get his name right. The main survivor of that group is ironically my least favorite character from that group: Emma Frost.

White Tiger is another one. Marvel's first Puerto Rican superhero, and they kill him off. I know it was to prove a point about secret identities in Bendis's Daredevil storyline at the time, but it still sucks that it had to be Hector Ayala to get knocked off to do it. I know there's the replacement White Tiger running around, but frankly, I just don't like her as much as the character Bill Mantlo wrote about.

I'll mention the New Warriors too, especially if I could get the original Night Thrasher and Namorita back. Nova can stay in space though, since he's rocking as a cosmic hero.

Yeah, I don't see Generation X making a comeback anytime soon...if ever. Still, the thread asks what I would bring back, and that's it(among other things).

As for Dark X-Men, I can't say it's crap since I haven't checked it out...but I can say there's nothing about Dark X-Men that would make me want to check it out either. And it too shall eventually pass.

I like the idea of New Warriors, but I can't see how they can work as a title. It's hard to make them heroes in training, since that's an idea numerous titles share already. It's also hard to make them a full on superhero title. There's just nothing unique about them to justify a title. It's sort of the same problem with the Titans and the original New Mutants team/titles.

I like Generation X, but I don't think they can work as a title, though I do advocate those character returning.

My choices:

She-Hulk. Slott had the right take on the character. PAD's take was wrong. Keep the humor angle, and maybe focus the book at female fans.

Midnight Sons. Throw together all the monster/magic characters and put them in a team book. Werewolf by Night, Morbius, Blade, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Strange, Voodoo, Gargoyle, Hellcat, Hellstorm, and so on. Strength in numbers in terms of sales. I'd be much more likely to try out this book instead of individual titles for various characters like MK, GR, Blade, etc. I'd call the team THE DEFENDERS instead, it's a better name.

Heroes for Hire. Format of the 90s series, with Iron Fist and Luke Cage, surrounded by other B-list heroes.

MCP. Change the format so we get 4 issues or so of the same character, instead of the 4 serialized stories per issue format.

The Invaders was a great book, and a number of original members are still around. Captain America, Spitfire, Namor, and the Torch are all (theoretically) available. I'm against bringing back long-dead characters, so Bucky, Toro, and the original UJ are out.
Throw in a few Avengers like, for example, Hawkeye (something of a Bucky analogue), Firestar (something of a Toro analogue), and Ms. Marvel, and then work to highlight the dramatic tension between the two teams functioning as one.
Recent attemps at utilizing the Invaders have been absolute crap, with the Invaders being portrayed as pseudo-heroes.

The DEFENDERS! That rat-sh*t crazy, ultra powerful, gun-totin' elf, Bozo-style Defenders of the Gerber days. As nuts as the MU is these days it would be perfect.

the Defenders was always almost great. i belive that given to say Mark millar and brian Hitch
and give them total freedom and let them use whoever they like (accept the sub mariner who is useless), and maby getting a bit cosmic it can be marvel's top book!
it's a hard sale but it can and SHOULD be an A-list book!!

the Hulk isn't a team player but written tight he bring a lot to a team
Dr. Strange is Depowered now, and that can make him more relatable
the Surfer can be a wonderful charecter
they can also pick and choose other classic or new defenders and write them in there fresh take

i'll buy it!!

Of course, this will never happen due to rights of ownership to the Champions name, but at least I can enjoy the original series. \(tongue\)

Think about it. Hulks pretty popular right now what with his recent movie and all. Why not have a Hulk and the Defenders catroon? You could have villians from all over the marvel universe, you could have all sorts of heroes guest star (Daredevil, Spidey, Avengers ect.) I think it would work.

I too would like an Invaders book, but I lack your disdain for the long dead, especially if they're currently alive. Specifically, I would include Bucky. I wouldn't bother bringing back the original Union Jack since a new one is already in place, but I would use the new one. I would bring Toro back too, what the heck. He would be Bucky's pal and that alone makes him interesting to me. We need another female besides Spitfire, so I would add the Black Widow. Purists might balk at that, but she would fit in easily, given Bucky's presence, and female martial artists were actually pretty common back in the Golden Age. I wouldn't use anyone else from the modern day, unless some other female seemed especially suitable.

I would have a new Emissaries of Evil,consisting of many obscure or 'z-list' supervillains. It would be led by Count Nefaria and would consist of the following villains;

Gargantua

Styx & Stone

Bludgeon

Halflife (the alien lady with the death touch)

Quicksand

Buzzsaw,Drill,and Handsaw from the Power Tools

The Slasher/Razorblade

Dr. Nemesis

Ramrod

Brain Drain

Heat-Ray

Sunstroke

The Maha Yogi

Captain Barracuda and crew

I would make Nefaria's Emissaries the chief rival to the Hood's Gang and involve them in gang wars with the Hood's group. The varios Avengers teams would get involved and try to bring both super-gangs to justice.
