The DCnU is now 2 weeks away and I have been thinking about what this reboot would be like if it were to have happened in the Marvel Universe. What comics would/wouldn't be totally rebooted? Which characters would be featured, which ones would be forgotten? What creators would be involved? So now I ask my fellow posters at The Outhouse, can we make a relaunch for the Marvel universe that people would be interested in reading?
The challenge is simple and everyone is invited to participate. We will take turns suggesting one of the 52 new titles that will make up the NuMarvel Universe but there will be a few rules and requirements for each suggestion:
1.) Obviously, you will have to tell us the name of your book. Along with the book's title, you need to tell us who the creative team is, the main and supporting cast, and a summary of what your book will be about.
2.) As I said, everybody is invited to participate but in order to insure that we get the widest variety of titles and opinions, you may only make ONE selection every 12 hours. We will go until all 52 titles have been selected and we will end at 52. Make sure that you number your selection, so we know how many more titles need to be selected.
3.) Once all 52 titles have been chosen, that's it. We will then be able to see what titles were passed up and which characters were forgotten.
4.) Any titles that do not meet these rules will be added to our rumored column until the person who suggested them can make them fit in with the rules.
The main thing is simply to have fun! I am going to post the first book which will serve as the NuMarvel's cornerstone book and afterwards this will be open to everyone!
