      I loved marvels recent cosmic stories. Nova, Guardians of the Galaxy, Annhiliation, Conquest, etc. rocked. But I couldn't help but thinking What books would I do if I did the cosmics? Here is my ideas.

    Absolutely loved Annihilation, but the subsequent stories were just so bad that I had to leave. Think there is a lot of potential in the cosmic section of Marvel, but it needs to be done right. I'll take the opposite approach and really limit the line. If it can't support two titles, it's not going to support eight. Less is more.

I would disagree with you alot. Nova was one of the best books I read in a while and aside from the occasional bad art Guardians was good too. I would take it over Hulk any day for instance. I think having two titles for the entire cosmic landscape is pretty limited honestly.

    - For 12 months, I'd put a restriction on all cosmic characters and stories. No miniseries, cosmic characters or ideas appearing anywhere else. The exception would be titles that are currently using those things, so Hickman would be able to continue his story with Galactus.


    - Create a new Annihilation like event based around the return of the Phoenix. Would feature the return of Nova, Star-Lord, Thanos, Black Bolt, Vulcan, Drax, and various others. This event would set up the new status quo for the cosmic section.

I could go for that.

    Guardians of the Galaxy - Similar to the previous incarnation, but with more popular characters. Line up would include characters like Quasar, Photon, Drax, Genis as Captain Marvel, Rocket Raccoon, Moondragon, Mantis, and others. Peter David would be the first name that comes to mind, since he's strong in team books and has experience with some of the characters and other cosmic stories.

I would not mind Peter David on a cosmic book, although I would pick DnA again for an ongoing, just not on events. Although Thanos Imperative was better.

    Nova - Similar to the previous incarnation, but serves under Steve Rogers as part of the Avengers. His role would be Earth's protector from cosmic threats. Project Pegasus gets a new purpose as the agency that handle's Earth's relationship with anything cosmic, of which Nova is connected with. This allows him to have a stable supporting cast. This would also allow Nova to be a part of the Avengers teams if a slot opens up.

I think he is wasted on Earth honestly. He is already on Secret Avengers, until he died.

Look Raist bunnies...
