So I was reading CBR (the interwebs source for Comic Book Resources) and I can across an interview with comic book writer Jeff Parker (Agents of Atlas). In it he talks about new projects, included a reboot of the dimensional misplaced Mutant team: The Exiles.
I think this makes like the 23rd time this comic has soft rebooted since its initial run (which granted kinda makes sense since the strength of the series is just seeing what cool f-ed up alternate dimension versions of the regular X-Men a writer can come up with).
Parker is going to launch the book with a cast that includes alternate version of Beast, Scarlet Witch, Forge, Black Panther and Polaris. That is a serious "B"-Squad. Oh, and he is bringing back Blink (because everyone misses Blink). Good Lord we can do better.
If you have made it this far I am sure you are asking yourself... but Stowe, why the Hell do I care?
I WILL TELL YOU WHY YOU CARE!!!
You care cause I am dusting off my old Marvel Exiles thread (from way back in SEPT. '07: http://jamesstowe.blogspot.com/2007/09/marvel-exiles.html).
As cool as that team was (eehh...) I can do better. And I want your help.
I need ideas for Mutants from Alternate Dimensions.
Now I know what you are going to say. You are going to say... but Stowe, you asked us to do this very same thing way back in SEPT. '07 (http://jamesstowe.blogspot.com/2007/09/marvel-exiles-x-panded.html) and you NEVER DREW ANY OF THEM.
And you know what? You're right. I didn't. But now its different. I'm a changed Stowe.
I promise to draw.
and to help here are some ome helpful Wiki links:
MUTANTS STILL ALIVE ON EARTH 616 (geekest link award!)
ALTERNATE DIMENSIONS (Marvel)
So there you go.
Post your ideas in the comments.
This is the challenge...let the best EXILES win.
