    This was partially done with the Midnight Sons about a year and a half ago in Marvel Zombies 4. The team consisted of Morbius, Werewolf by Night, Jennifer Kale, Simon Garth(Zombie)and Hellstorm. They operated under A.R.M.O.R which stands for Alternate Reality Monitoring and Operational Response. I thought it had a lot of potential since they were dealing with a part of the Marvel Universe that gets neglected(The Supernatural). I guess the mini didn't do to well so this concept wasn't followed up on in another mini. Unfortunately in today's market a series like this wouldn't make it before being canceled by Marvel.

No, the idea that we are proposing would be to put the supernatural "A-listers" on a team together. So instead of putting characters with little popularity on the team (Kale, Zombie, etc), you put the characters with more popularity on the team (Ghost Rider, Strange, Blade, Moon Knight, etc). It's never been done with the supernatural characters before. Midnight Sons in the 90s came close to this idea.
It would be a supernatural version of the New Avengers, take the most popular supernatural characters and put them on a team.

The idea is that solo ongoings with Moon Knight, Blade, Strange, Ghost Rider, and other supernatural characters are only able to sell 20K a month. But if you have a team title featuring those characters, you might sell 40K or so. That's the difference between cancellation.
