There is a knock on your door and when you answer it there is a representative from IDW with a briefcase chained to his wrist (where do you think Brainstorm got it from?). The rep pulls out a contract to hire you to write a 6 issue miniseries for them. The only restrictions is that you can only select, at most, two characters that are currently main characters in other series (ie they appear at least once every 3 issues), you can only create one new character to be a main cast member, the story MUST fit their current universe, and they want you to tell something new and different from what they are doing right now. Otherwise you are allowed free reign. What story do you tell? I’ll start off: mine would be Transformers: Rogues and Scoundrels. Starring Lockdown, Doubledealer (yeah, he is alive… it would be covered), Drift, Arcee, and Swindle, it would be similar to Gail Simone’s Secret Six of Marvel Now’s Thunderbolts. Selected by a mysterious benefactor, the fivesome would be tasked with journeying to a derelict space station and collecting a simple crate (it isn’t that big or even made of anything special). Do that and each and every one of them will get… something. The audience doesn’t know what each will get at first, only that it is their greatest heart’s desire. Something that ensures that each will do everything in their power to get that crate to the drop point. The only problem? Seems like everyone in the universe wants the crate and has no problem killing the five to get it... well, not just them, but blow up half a solar system, if need be. The story would see the dysfunctional five forced to work together… not to achieve their mission but to survive the impossible.
