    Move Thor to Minnesota, with all the Scandinavian Americans there, it could create some interesting stories. Mix in some folk lore.

    Don't know about that. Might make more sense for him to move to a Scandinavian country IMO, but then I'm not American and don't think one should limit oneself to parts of the

A non-America based superhero? Ridiculous.

    Well, they did plan to move to Portland, OR, at the end of the (second) Clone Saga. But as a dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker (in-story he even speaks with a noticeable Queens accent) he would rather die than move to New Jersey. \:\-D (What a lot of people forget: Mary Jane was raised in Pennsylvania and, according to the OHOTMU, was born in Pittsburgh; it's just her aunt who lived in Forest Hills).

I liked that mini-series.

There are places besides New Jersey and Portland he could pick from.

    He and the Black Widow lived in San Francisco when the book was called "Daredevil and the Black Widow".

I said less gentrified, not more. Modern San Fran lacks the grit a DD story needs.

Not to mention, even with Matt's impressive career, I don;t think he could make rent.

Hell, even back then he had to live off Nat, if memory serves.

    I really wish writers made more play of her background as a New Englander (Bostonian, to be precise).

That would be interesting. Especially if they start writing out the accent.

There is even a potential Lovecraft angle they could do there.

    Why? Because he's a supernatural hero and everything supernatural must be in the Big Easy? (Thank you, Anne Rice).

That reputation is much older than Anne Rice. They have played up the mystery and voodoo angle to tourists forever. They even give tours of cemeteries.

The city has a million ghost stories, and they love their local legends more than just about anywhere else in America.

Not to mention the stereotype of sin and vice.

Marvel eve had a supernatural character based in the area back in the 70s...The Zombie.

    Wouldn't that be a lot like "Outback era version 2.0"? (Also, with the Hulk's known propensity for the Southwest, wouldn't they keep running into him all the time?) Incidentally, the X-Men have lived in or near San Francisco more than once, and seemed to enjoy life there better than that in New York.

I am thinking of it more like a western series. Claremont has even said he was partially inspired by Clint Eastwood at times when writing Wolverine.
