Flatterer :drunk

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.

I love the morts, too, which is why I threw the Challengers on my list as well. I'd love to see if I could take a team of castoffs that nobody cares about and create the next X-Factor or Secret Six.

I don't really understand the attitude behind the second condition. A writer for the Big Two is "work for hire". They're using someone else's creations. Why should they care what Marvel or DC does with the characters after they're gone?

Shang-Chi
Iron Fist
Firestar
I would say Union Jack but I don't think I could outdo Gage's mini

i'd love to do Metamorpho, Atom, or Firestorm, one of the cool lower-tier DC heroes where you could tie in a bunch of science-y and pseudo-science-y stuff.

a WWII-era Danette Reilly Firebrand book

but #1 with a bullet, and I've got the story i want to tell filed away in my brain somewhere:

STINGRAY.

No problem on the second. No matter what anyone else did they wouldn't be able to change the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer. So, retcons would not be possible.

They would however be free to write about a strikingly similar character.

George RR Martin had the same request. Twigg is the GRRM of the Outhouse.

Reposted from the Marvel Realities Mash-Ups Thread:

Exiles - Original Exiles members Blink, Morph, Nocturne, and Thunderbird are reunited with Sasquatch and a resurrected Mimic, alongside former teammate Sunfire's lover Spider-Woman in order to investigate the damage caused to the Marvel Multiverse as a result of Age of Ultron.

Nova 2099 - Having prepared himself for oblivion at the end of Thanos Imperative, Richard Rider is caught off guard when he suddenly discovers himself on Earth near the end of the 21st Century! He is even more surprised when he encounters his best friends, Darkhawk and Speedball, as well as a rag tag "League of Losers" from the present, stranded in the future with him. Together, they struggle to find a way home for Richard while dealing with the damaged space-time continuum and interacting with the cast of the 2099 universe!

No. A person hired by Marvel or DC to play with the company's toys shouldn't get upset over what the company does with those properties after they leave the book, because whatever changes the publisher make do not alter the fact the stories are still there for people to enjoy.

Or do like Grant Morrison and break the toys/put the toys back in the box like he did on X-Men & JLA.

In his defense, especially when it comes to the X-Men, Grant Morrison fixed the toys before putting them back into the box. It was the writers who came after him (*cough* Chuck Austen *cough*) that broke them all over again. :smt102
