  3. For a minute there, I thought this was a scene from the original made-for-cable movie: "JOHN BYRNE: THE EARLY YEARS."

  4. I bet every single one of those stories involve a character with his name having sex with a lot of different girls in assorted uniforms.

  5. "Okay, so check this- it's about Speedball, Deathlok and Sleepwalker who all start a Detective Agency, right?
    -But Speedball is fat now and Deathlok is half of one of The Red Ghosts monkeys. And Sleepwalker is a woman now and is wicked-hot and she has a lesbian crush on Dagger...
    So they solve crimes perpetrated by The White Rabbit, The Circus of Crime and sometimes villain Leap-Frog as well as battle the corrupt CEO of The Roxxon Energy Corporation until they meet up with Dazzler who they let join the team and stuff but then she betrays them and it's all emotional and stuff like if Joss Whedon wrote it...
    Then the big twist at the end is that Deathlok's programming was corrupted all along by none other than Iron Man 2020 who was sending them on missions to make himself richer in THE FUTURE!!!"

    That pretty much sums up how I wished my life turned out.

    Just add flying cars and a monkey sidekick.

  11. @King of Thessaly: Honestly? Your story sounds more interesting than 99% of what's coming out of Marvel these days.

  12. @Slade Grayson: Ha! I don't know about that, but thanks! (I think?) You know, I was just throwing something out to mock/mimic that guys alleged "good story ideas" and, yeah- now I kind of want to read it.

    Hey- if anyone at The House of Ideas sees this: You can HAVE the outline, just get Garth Ennis to write it. I'll add it to my stack.

  14. To work for Marvel all you have to do is re-tell old stories and change nothing.
