You'd also have to retcon Brubaker turning him into Scourge & killing him.

I'd let the Scourge bit stand, but I'd retcon the shot killing him. Considering D-Man was normal up until the explosion that left him frozen in ice a la Bucky, I don't think it would be that hard to reconcile all his weird appearances and behavior over the past 20 years as some kind of brain damage. My first issue would open with him going under the knife to fix the problem.

I love Doom Patrol, but I wouldn't do that title justice so I'd *want* an upper-tier talent (like Log-Man) to take on that group.

I have a soft spot for the morts, so for DC I'd want to tackle the second Outsiders team or Primal Force. Maybe even Global Guardians.
For Marvel I'd like to tackle a mort villains title, but it seems like they're pretty much doing that.

Rookies of S.H.E.I.L.D, a book about people coming into the program and learning to become agents and the their missions.

Otherwise

I think there's ALWAYS potential for something like Exiles but the last series never really had time to find its footing...

Weapon X was a fun book but I don't know where it would fit into the current MU.

I'd also write a Deadman book like a modern day Quantum Leap & the Question like DC's Person of Interest but that's not really in the cards either.

I'd also love to write a bickering buddy road-trip book featuring Speedball and Richard Rider as the real Nova. This book would retcon Penance entirely (it was Darrion Grobe returned from the grave and gone totally nutty, if you understood that congratulations you are a nerd) and of course guest former New Warriors frequently.

Nothing. I couldn't lower myself to writing on a big 2 comic unless they guaranteed me I could drastically change the status quo and my changes couldn't be retconned.
