> Since even obscure characters are getting them, why haven't they done Black Panther? I'd like to see the Jungle Action issues along with any eariler major appearences. Also, Ka-Zar from Astonishing Tales and then his 4 solo series. I most want Master of Kung Fu but I guess Marvel can't do it due to them no longer having the rights to the Sax Rohmer characters like Fu Manchu. Or how about the non-Shang-Chi stories from Deadly Hands of Kung Fu?

Would like to see:
Power Pack
Alpha Flight
New Mutants
Solo X-Men, collecting the minis and one-shots
Solo Avengers
West Coast Avengers
Micronaughts (do Marvel own the rights to this?)
Devil Dinosaur
Jack of Hearts
Cloak and Dagger



The new Pack stories are all well and good, but a little too stuck in the formula at this point (Pack meets [other Marvel hero/heroes], makes friends, fights villain[s], The End). I'd love to have a "phonebook" of the early Weezie/Brigman stories and/or the phenomenal work Bogdanove & Barta did on Power Pack to drop in the laps of some deserving children...

...or better yet, hand them to my friends who are now parents. Back when I was a kid reading Power Pack, I didn't have the perspective to appreciate it, but re-reading the original series nowadays, I realize that Weezie and Bog wrote the most "real" children I've ever encountered in fiction. In my life now, I know a Katie--a precociously, almost frighteningly intelligent child who, at the same time, is very much a little girl. I know an Alex, a Julie, and a Jack, too. I so want to be able to share this stuff with others without dropping a wad of cash for back issues.
