Inspired by this thread: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=4463000 How would you re-invent, re-model current Superhero books to make them appealing or interesting for you (and hopefully, other readers)? Here's how I would re-imagine the X-Men (and the Marvel Universe in some sense ) After an unexplained incident involving the burning down of her school, young Jubilation Lee finds herself under investigation by a Federal agency known as SHIELD. Mr.Xavier, head of the X Branch of SHIELD, meets Jubilation personally to convince her of her innate special abilities and to convince her to join his organization. Despite the tempting offer, Jubilation refuses, wishing only to live the normal life of a teenage girl. Mr.Xavier, after expressing some disappointment, acquiesces to Jubilation's request. That night after a good day at the mall, Jubilation returns home to find a group of armored soldiers patrolling outside her home. Confronting them, Jubilation finds that they have been ordered to take her into custody and to kill her if she resisted. As she is being grabbed and forced into an armor car, Jubilation lets out a scream as balls of energy start to manifest and swirl themselves around her until she and her surrounding area is engulfed in light. Then an explosion. Some time later, a semi-conscious Jubilation Lee awakens to see that the soldiers, the car and her house have been charred to the ground while she has been left relatively unscathed. Confused and disorientated, Jubilation Lee gets to her feet in hopes of finding safety and some answers. ...And I wanted to write more but I think that's enough for a start. So.....How would you reshape a Superhero Book to make it interesting for you?
