10 things Marvel must do in Secret Wars

secret Wars

Marvel recently announced that the Secret Wars beginning in May will be the end of the Marvel comics universe. Now let’s not be crazy, that’s a money train. They aren’t just going to blow it up. The real word being floated around is “reboot”. Marvels primary 616 universe is going to smash into the Ultimate universe. All the characters from both Marvel universes will end in a place called Battleworld. This will allow Marvel to reshape and streamline their Universe – one would assume to make it more like the Marvel cinematic universe and open it up to new readers. Here are ten things I hope are in the Universe once the Secret Wars ends.

Secret Wars

 

Female Thor: Jason Aaron has a great book right now. I hope that Marvel keeps this great book intact.

Secret Wars

Miles Morales: The Ultimate universe’s Spider-Man has been a staple for the last few years. He also is one of the most interesting Marvel characters going. Hopefully he makes the jump to whatever new universe is formed.

Secret Wars

Mark Waid’s Daredevil: The run on Waid’s Daredevil has been really good. He turned it away from the dark noir and brought a lot of light into the book, and moved Daredevil away from New York, all the way to San Francisco. Hopefully Marvel doesn’t use Secret Wars to back down on this kind of mold-breaking (see lady Thor above).

Secret Wars

The Original X-Men: Let’s be honest here, the X-Men is too convoluted. There are WAY too many X-men characters. Let’s get things back to a more streamlined version: two X-men books, five characters each. So yeah, go ahead and kill a few off.

Secret Wars

The Fantastic Four: Yes, Marvel is ending the Fantastic Four, but let’s hope that the Secret War allows them to come back, In some form or another. It’s important that Marvel have the original super hero family around. The characters are too good to stay on the sideline.

Secret Wars

Solo Hawkeye: Over the last few years the best comic Marvel has produced hands down has been Hawkeye.  If the Secret War takes that away they need to stop right now. We need solo Hawkeye over Avengers Hawkeye.

Secret Wars

 

Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan: I have no idea what the sales are like on this book, but I feel it is important to keep it untouched. Kamala is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Universe right now. She’s the new Spider-man – a teenage superhero with real problems.

secret Wars

Jonathan Hickman: Be it Avengers, X-men or Fantastic Four, Marvel needs to keep Hickman working in the company. If he is burned out let him do a bi-monthly book, whatever it takes. His books have really been focused, that is what Marvel needs.

secret Wars

Spider-man and Mary Jane:  They need to retcon the whole One More Day crap, If you don’t want them to be married have them get a divorce. Show the pain of it all. Or keep them together and let them be grown ups and let Miles wear the tights.

secret Wars

No more big events:  At least not immediately. This is an important one, after secret war let things build for a long while before there is another crossover event. No big giant company wide mini-series. Just solo books. Give us time to get to know everyone. You know, like in the Marvel movies.
