Comics 2013: What do you want to see?

Postby Psivage » Sat Dec 29, 2012 2:35 pm

Not really a prediction thread. just what you want to see happen in the coming year?

For me I would like to see Iron Lad come back with a Young Masters of Evil, with a Yellowjacket who is Cassie Lang, and a repair Kid Vision.

that all I can think of right now.

OOPS: Can someone move this to the comic section please.

I would love to see all or some of the following:

- New Planetary Mini featuring Ambrose
- New Warren Ellis magic post-apocalyptic book.
- New D&D book
- New Atomic Robo
- New Chew
- Reprint of the Inza era Doctor Fate in a omnibus or colored TPB
- Reprint of the rest of Spiderman 2099 stories

This sounds fun!

I'd love to see a few things:

1. Justice League to find a level of consistency, of "readability," that Marvel has found with its team books. I never thought it would be this difficult for this book to get momentum with a relaunch. I don't need this book to be great, though I would like it to be. But there's never a reason for this franchise to be less than average -- and far too often, it slips below that bar.

2. A status quo for Cyclops that makes sense and respects his history: I get what Marvel was trying to do, and I don't disagree with it, in theory. Characters do need to move forward. But Cyclops isn't a villain who should be on the run like a common criminal. Again, I understand what Marvel was trying to do. But Cyclops isn't a villain, and in 2013 I'd like to see the character gain some measure of freedom to operate as what he is and has always been, a heroic figure.

3. It would be nice to go one calendar year without the Hulk turning on his teammates in a fight in the Avengers. Man, would that ever be nice. Because it's amazing to me how some things change in comics, where Cyclops can kill Professor Xavier, but some things never change, and that's the Hulk always attacking people who think he's on their team.

4. I don't mind Keith Giffen coming in with the intention of shaking up the Legion of Super-Heroes. As a matter of fact, it'll be nice to see the book be aggressive. Once upon a time, it took risks and was great. I have no doubt that it can, and will, be again.

5. It won't happen, but it'd be nice if we got a year of Batman Family stories where they didn't crossover. I think as highly of Scott Snyder as anyone, but his best work was on Detective, not Batman, IMO. Why? Because he kept that book on its own.

And this.

Along with:

The return of Wally West to the NuDCU.

The return of Ares to the MU.

A year of uninterrupted Superior Spider-Man stories.

12 issues of Cassaday's art on Uncanny Avengers (Not holding my breath on this one).

Shorter Batman arcs from Snyder that don't cross over. Starting with his take on the Riddler.



More on the way...

I don't want the avengers to infest every book there is.

Iron Man only in the first Arc of GOTG.

I want a good classic Defenders book.

Give me nighthawk, hellcat, gargoyle, Valkyrie, and other b list heroes.

No more Luke cage.

He is b list. Stop trying to make him an a list.

No more world threatening bad guys in savage dragon.

Seriously. That earth should be near death.

Cheaper marvel comics on comixlogy.

Someone mention it before but it is worth mentioning again.

Fuck Extreme X-Men

Bring back Exiles.

I think the Claremont stank is off to give it another go.

Who's Who.

Come on DC, bring it back.

This.

This.

And also these:

- A brand new Amazing Spider-Man series by the end of 2013.

- An on-going series set in the pre-Flashpoint DCU starring Wally West, Booster Gold, Rip Hunter, Ted Kord, Donna Troy, and other DCU characters who didn't make it to the DCnU.

- The return of Richard Rider with an actual explanation of how Star-Lord and Thanos escaped the Cancerverse and how Drax was brought back to life.

- Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto are exonerated of any crimes they may have committed during Avengers vs. X-Men.

- Speaking of Cyclops and Emma Frost, they get back together and are actually allowed to get married by the end of the year.

I would prefer to see someone who hasn't had a regular series before. While I like She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel, they have already had their shots. How about Storm, Scarlet Witch, Black Cat, Wasp, Kitty Pryde, Tigra, etc ? Marvel has many great female characters that could have their own books if they put a strong enough creative team on them.

Another thing I would love to see is a Cloak & Dagger ongoing series. Make it happen Marvel.

Yes please.

I too would like to see no more Batman-Family crossovers. It's the reason I dropped Batman just before 'No Man's Land'. Also the character is spread too thin & could do with losing a few titles. Just go back to Batman & Detective.

Vision & Scarlet Witch as a couple again with an ongoing series.

Fearless Defenders to be a success & to continue for many years.

Lee Weeks to do a regular series - there is just nowhere near enough of his artwork about.

Dynamite to take on Doc Savage & The Spirit.

ROM.
