    Let's say Marvel just up and rips off DC wholesale, and decides to reboot their universe with 52 brand-new #1 titles. What would you like to see them do?

    This is a list I'm gonna work on over the course of a few days since I have to sit down & think this through, but here's a few I wanted to start with:

    1.) Avengers
    2.) West Coast Avengers
    3.) Captain America
    4.) Iron Man
    5.) The Incredible Hulk
    6.) Thor, God of Thunder
    7.) Young Avengers (basically a mash-up of YA, Runaways, and Avengers: The Initiative)
    8.) New Warriors (basically graduates of the Initiative)
    9.) Wolverine
    10.) Astonishing X-Men
    11.) Astonishing X-Force
    12.) Uncanny X-Men
    13.) Luke Cage/Iron Fist
    14.) Heroes For Hire, Inc.
    15.) Thunderbolts (a mix of black ops Avengers & "work release" supercriminals)
    16.) Deadpool
    17.) Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch (with Vision & Crystal in there as well)
    18.) Fantastic Four
    19.) Amazing Spider-Man
    20.) Punisher
    21.) S.H.I.E.L.D. (like Secret Warriors but not... secret)

    Iron Man for sure. I don't follow anything else, so I'd probably give Avengers, A:WC, Cap, and Deadpool a try.

    2: Fantastic Four
    3: Amazing Spider-Man
    4: Iron Man
    5: X-Factor
    6: X-Men
    7: Thor
    8: Incredible Hulk
    9: Defenders
    10: Young Avengers
    11: Daredevil
    12: Nova
    14: Punisher
    15: Guardians of the Galaxy
    16: Silver Surfer
    17: Marvel Universe (24 issues Maxi-Serie introducing the new Marvel U)
    18:D r. Strange
    19: Captain America
    20: Thunderbolts
    21: Spider-Girl (Mayday Parker, not the current Spider-Girl)
    22: Alpha Flight

    I'm going to assume that, like DC, Marvel would be letting its top talent direct the relaunch. It's Marvel, so that would put Brian Bendis in charge of everything. Therefore, I assume it would look something like this:

    1. Avengers
    2. New Avengers.
    3. Dark Avengers.
    4. New Dark Avengers.
    5. Wovlerine and the X-Men
    6. Wolverine and the New X-Men
    7. Dark Wolverine and the Uncanny X-Men
    8. New Wolverine and the Uncanny Dark X-Men
    9. Amazing Spider-Man
    10. Spider-Man and the Avengers
    11. Spider-Man and Wolverine
    12. Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four
    13. Web of Spider-Man
    14. Wolverine
    15. Dark Wolverine
    16. Young Wolverine
    17. X-23
    18. Spider-Girl
    19. Captain America
    20. Young Captain America
    21. Iron Man
    22. New Iron Man
    23. Hulk
    23. Thor
    24. New Thor
    25. Deadpool
    26. Deadpool Max
    27. Deadpool and Wolverine and Spider-Man
    28. Ultimate Spider-Man
    29. Luke Cage

    31. Luke Cage and Iron Fist
    32. Luke Cage and Jessica Jones
    33. Luke Cage and the New Avengers
    34. Luke Cage and the Dark Avengers

    I'd add this to my pull list. Really I would. I'm not even gonna lie.

    Also '52. Tales to Astonish Luke Cage' sounds like a title that I'd buy, assuming it astonished me too.

    'Tales to astonish *insert your name*'

    If Marvel is smart, they'd do the following:

    - Leave the current universe alone
    - Reboot the 2099 universe, but instead have a team of "current universe" characters get transported to 2099 as a one-book title, and they have to figure out why they are there, what horrible event(s) caused the 2099 universe to happen, figure out who is friend and foe, and eventually how to get back home.
    - Reboot the "Age of Apocalypse" universe. Throw a twist - it's Apocalypse from 2099 who went back in time, creating the AoA universe and it's off-shoot 2099 future. Bring back the popular "X-Man" character but tone down his powers so he's not a walking God like he was made out to be.
    - Reboot the "Ultimate" universe, and allow that to be "a new version of your favorite characters".

    Four universes going at once - 2 connected to the "main" universe with potential "mass storyline" crossovers, 1 being its own unique universe. Plenty of storylines to look at for years and years to come.

    I could type out a big ol' long list, but who's gonna read that?

    I'll tell you this, though. There would damn sure be at least one Power Pack book in that line-up. And I'd bring back Tomb of Dracula, Star Brand, and Giant-Size Man-Thing
