I know many of the younger site members don't even know what that is but if you ask I will gladly help educate you. I won't even start this project until I get at least 4 other writers on board so I'm just putting it out there for now but if you want feel free to use this as a sign up thread.
Anyone want to help me bring back Ultraverse in fanfic form?
Ultraverse was going along so well before Marvel got hold of it. I was really sad they didn't at least integrate the characters into the Marvel U. Prototype as the guy who tests Stark's improvements? And lost an arm over it? Oh yeah, there's story there.
Solitaire was my favorite, because I had a character of the same name. Hated that the title didn't last at least another year.
Firepower seemed like Punisher-lite (as did New Universe's Merc), but they did some interesting things to promote the title and differentiate it a little.
Strangers and Freex were great team books. Mantra was a little weird, as mystical characters go, but it was okay. Rune was kind of a thing unto itself. And Sludge was like an urban Swamp Thing. Prime you pretty well covered, but it wasn't really my thing- I've never really liked heroes that are figuring their powers out as they go. I've probably forgotten something, but I was really loving this universe.
Unfortunately, when Marvel bought it, they milked it for everything it was worth, mixed the Ultraverse Exiles with Marvel characters, then transferred the team, title and all to Marvel, discarding the rest. It wasn't completely their fault though. They couldn't continue to publish and make money on Ultraverse- the contractual logistics were a nightmare. It would be nice if the creators involved would work it out, so the titles could return. They were great reads.
...Um <red faced> yeah, just dropping my two cents in. I really have no ideas for a fan-fic story. :/
