Armchair editing: If I ran the Comicsverses

Last night dryponder did what all of us comic fans do ocassionally, armchair editing. It's much like armchair booking for wrestling. I decided to really go the armchair route though. In Arm chair booking for wrestling you don't just throw together matches, you tend to also come up with new angles and gimmicks as well. I decided what if I took that approach to armchair editing. I stuck to MARVEL and DC like Trippe did, but I've created a whole new universe for both company using their established characters. Each company has seven core titles and I went a bit crazy with my ideas. The biggest thing to remember with Armchairing is that you can/try to ignore everything that is currently going on or is being set-up to go in a totally new and different direction that will still be possible and make sense to fans.
