I would love a new cartoon/ongoing comic series set in the classic Marvel Universe. In this reality, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Defenders all joined forces years ago.
The 21 heroes shown in the above pic were the founding members of the "Amazing Avengers," along with Prof. X as their mission controller. They are soon joined by Havok, Polaris, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, White Tiger (Hector Ayala), Storm, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Banshee, Sunfire, and Thunderbird. The team is loosely divided into five 7-member squads, but is very much one big team/family.
By Sept 1981, which is when time basically stops in this reality, the team includes Black Panther, Tigra, Moon Knight, Hercules, Ghost Rider, Ms. Marvel, Spider-Woman, Wonder Man, Falcon, Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Dazzler, Sprite (Kitty Pryde), and Firestar. Jocasta has also joined as support staff. Hank Pym is now Yellowjacket. Jean Grey is now Phoenix.
The team is loosely divided into three 16-member squads, but still very much one large team/family. Here are my suggestions for the squads:
Captain America, Sunfire, Banshee, Dazzler, Hulk, Daredevil, Falcon, Iron Man, Thor, Havok, Polaris, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Silver Surfer, and Wasp.
Storm, Black Panther, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Spider-Woman, Ms. Marvel, Wonder Man, Colossus, Sprite, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Girl, Thing, Human Torch, Namor, Dr. Strange, and Yellowjacket.
Cyclopes, Phoenix, Beast, Tigra, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Hercules, Ghost Rider, Angel, Iceman, Spider-Man, Firestar, Thunderbird, White Tiger, Moon Knight, and Ant-Man.
If any of you artistic types want to draw a pic (or 2 or 3 connecting pics) of the team (including Prof. X and Jocasta), that would be awesome!
Although not quite as close to the rest of the Avengers teams, there is a fourth team of "Cosmic Avengers" -- Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell), Vance Astro, Starhawk, Nikki, Charlie-27, Martinex, Yondu, Eros (Starfox), Nova (Richard Rider), Drax, Gamora, Adam Warlock, Pip the Troll, Moondragon, Mantis, and Bug (six inches tall). If you want to also include them in the mix, that would be great.
