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).


Check it out: Shu and I (and FLCL) teamed up!

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.
