6) Die

"Even a Legend Can Die"

Steve Rogers gets shot and killed in a normal everyday mugging. Stupid death for a great hero. No Nazis, no death rays, no saving the world - just Steve bleeding out in an alley somewhere while a kid runs away with his wallet. And no time travel or Cosmic Cube to reverse it - he's dead, it's permanent and and it's for no good reason. Do it as part of "The End" series but gritty and realistic showing how the country and the Marvel heroes and villains react.

"The reason I was trying to always split you and Jean up, was because I wanted you Scott!" In a shocking move Wolverine comes out of the closet as a full blown leather daddy.

Boom marvel universe destroyed. You could see newsrama exploding from space.

1) Turn into a killer
Mr Fantastic (but to save his children's lives)

2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate
The Human Torch (after Reed kills the villians, Johnny can't remain on the team. He thinks Reed is smart enough and should have found another way.)

3) Become a villain
Adam Warlock (his Infinity Gem corrupts him, and it must be removed from him before he can become a hero again)

4) Become a hero (if a villain)
Sandman (I always liked him better as a hero)

5) Have someone else take up their super identity
Iron Fist (Isn't that what Brubaker and Fraction are setting up?)

6) Die
Danny Rand (hence the need for a new Iron Fist)

7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)
Kraven (he is sent by Mephisto to hunt souls that have escaped from his grasp to the world of the living)

8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)
Dr. Strange and Hellcat (on a Defender's mission where they are lost in other dimensions.)

9) Join a team they hadnt been in before
Deadpool joins the Thunderbolts (because he wants a regular paycheck)
The Punisher also joins the Thunderbolts (because someone has to keep an eye on these so called legitimate villians)

10) Get turned on by the hero community
Namor (you can only attack the surface world so many times before it pisses off the wrong person)

11) Have a kid
Scott Sommers and Emma Frost

12) Get stranded on another planet
Ben Grimm (It's happened before so he's not too worried about it. Besides Stretcho will figure a way to get him back. Can happen at the same time as Reed killing and Johnny leaving the team.)

13) Wind up in jail
Hank Pym (wrongly convicted of something his evil twin did)

14) Get an "evil twin"
Hank Pym

15) Get a costume change
Daredevil (to an all black, almost ninja like costume with a red DD emblem)

16) Lose a limb
Cable (but it's his cybernetic arm so he can build a new one)

17) Become gay
Jubilee

18] Meddle with the occult
Norman Osborne (to get even more power)

19) Acquire a sidekick (who)
Daredevil gets a "Robin" in the form of the Patriot from the Young Avengers who changes his costume and becomes Silence

20) Quit
She Hulk (and only works as Jen Walter Lawyer)

21) Become their teen/older self
?????

22) Be brought "back to their roots"
The Hulk (he just wants to be left alone, but no body will abide by his wishes)

23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD
Rick Jones (because he has ties to many people in the hero community)

24) Take over a country
Since no one will leave the Hulk alone he takes over his own country through sheer force, and Banner's intelect.

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue
Adam Warlock's Infinity Gem problem is all due to Thanos

"I'm the best at what I do and what I do is BUTTSEX"

"The reason I was trying to always split you and Jean up, was because I wanted you Scott!" In a shocking move Wolverine comes out of the closet as a full blown leather daddy.

Boom marvel universe destroyed. You could see newsrama exploding from space.


And he already has the costume from the Morrison/Quitley run.

7.) Come back from the dead.

Hitman. Tommy wakes up as a result of the Prime Punch, digging his way out of a shallow grave and kicking down a shitty wooden headstone. Finding some ciggarettes in his coat he lights one, looks around, and shrugs.

DAVE
11-07-2006, 03:33 PM
OK I thought about this one on the way home from work:

5) Have someone else take up their super identity
6) Die

Black Panther.
There's a coup in Wakanda, and killed in the overthrow is the King himself, T'Challa, by his long time nemesis Ulysses Klaw.
Wakanda is thrown into chaos, as only the bloodline of the Panther can rule the nation.
Desperate, a royal vizier and the widowed queen, Storm track down a distant cousin, and the last member of the Panther Bloodline, in New York City.
Ebin Stone, a young man living in the Bronx is that man.
Ebin's family was brought to America in the 1700's by slave traders. Ebin, is a little lost in life, trying to change for the better and outgrow his troublemaking youth.
The first story would be Ebin training to become the Panther, and travelling to Wakanda to go through the Panther ceremony and overthrow Klaw.

21) Become their teen/older self

The Sentry

In a post-Civil War Earth, heroes now work for SHIELD. There are still bitter feelings about the event, as Captain America was killed by Iron Man. Underground vigilantes still operate, but are hunted every day. As the heroes attempt to sort out their emotions (Sue divorces Reed, takes custody of the kids; Spider-Man is forced into registration and struggles to protect his loved ones), the Hulk returns to Earth. With a vendetta against the Illuminati that creates a blinding rage for the Hulk, he begins by destroying the Baxter Building, causing a momumental explosion. SHIELD heroes die on the scene, reminiscent of 9/11. Soon, there are no heroes to fight the Hulk, except the Sentry, who has been in space attempting to reconcile with himself the decisions he made. The Sentry is not able to combat the Hulk's new strength and it catapulted into space, where he watches Earth explode. Unbeknownst to the Sentry, the Hulk attacked a missile silo on the East Coast, causing a premature nuclear war.
The Sentry, forced into action by his guilt, manages to fly at a speed so fast, he is able to slip into the folds of the space-time continuum. When he returns, it is 20 years in the past. Bob is 20 years younger and, armed with knowledge of the future, is able to avoid the dirty mess of the future. Making friends with the Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Inhumans, Bob unites them all under a system (similar to the ideas of Iron Man). The heroes ready themselves twenty years before the Civil War, preventing Stamford and the genocide to come.



I know, I got a bit carried away....

Some great ideas so far! I'll try to post something later when work dies down a bit.

A story involving the following elements:

1) Become a killer
2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate
5) Have someone else take up their super identity
6) Die
9) Join a team they hadnt been in before
10) Get turned on by the hero commuity
11) Have a kid
15) Gets a costume change
16) Lose a limb
20) Quit
24) Take over a country


Dr. Doom and the Red Skull team up (9) to conquer Eastern Europe (24) and divide it between them, enlisting (coercing?) the Abomination to help them. Working for S.H.I.E.L.D. Cap. America is defeated by Doom & the Abomination and held in his Latverian fortress while the Skull executes a plot leading to Johnny Storm's death (6), leaving the FF broken and demoralized. Iron Man faces off against Doom, armor vs. armor (with some newly discovered magic trinket), to free Cap and is defeated, loosing a leg in the battle (16) and ends his career (20) as Iron Man (for now).

Bucky (as Winter Soldier) assembles a group of heroes (16): Dr. Strange (because of Doom's magic); Colossus (his relatives are threatened); and Rick Jones, who is the new Iron Man with a new suit (5, 15). Together, they infiltrate Doom's fortress and liberate Capt. America, steal the magical trinket from Doom, and sabotage the technological means by which he and the Skull were conquering the Eastern Bloc. Bucky dies (for reals) in the process, as does the Abomination (6).

Capt. America, shamed, embarrassed and broken by his defeat, imprisonment and subsequent torture, runs off to parts unknown (2) and it is uncertain if he will take up the shield again. Wolverine finds out from Tony about Cap. and tracks him down.

Logan, with his personal experiences, reaches out to Steve, they do some samurai training and meditation mumbo jumbo and Captain America makes a triumphant reappearance in a new costume (15) somewhere down the line (Probably when Ben goes after the Red Skull for killing Johnny, to kill him once and for all, (6) costing him ties with the hero community (1, 10) - Sue can't because she's pregnant (11), and Reed just looses his mind).

1) Turn into a killer


Ant-Man. On the run, having to hide, using a network of ants to keep tabs on people.



2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate


Black Panther. Get away from Wakanda do something new.



3) Become a villain


Hulk. Evolve towards the Maestro.



4) Become a hero (if a villain)


Mephisto, just to confuse everyone. Constant suspicion, wondering what he's up to and why he's doing all these good deeds seemingly.



5) Have someone else take up their super identity


Punisher. If Columbine can have copycats, the Punisher should have a slew of 'em.



6) Die


Dr. Strange. Give him some degenerative nerve disorder which will make it impossible to cast spells eventually. Force him to have to take on a new apprentice.

http://www.606studios.com/bendisboard/showpost.php?p=1295169&postcount=24



7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)


Mockingbird. REALLY mess with Hawkeye. Wanda attempting to make up for past errors.



8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)


Carol Danvers and Tony Stark. Were they drinking? Does it drive them to drink?



9) Join a team they hadnt been in before


Punisher on Avengers just to see Cap's reaction



10) Get turned on by the hero community


Reed Richards; Does he continue his altruism? Is he shunned by everyone else also? What does he live for at this point?



11) Have a kid


Hulk. Imagine the tantrums, will Banner repeat the errors of his father?



12) Get stranded on another planet


Thor; Beta Ray Bill stuff; Ideally, explore the idea of the Asgardians as aliens as touched on in Earth X.



13) Wind up in jail


Power Pack; Gotta make those kids grow up sometime, and Katie's already getting that in Runaways/Loners



14) Get an "evil twin"


Deadpool



15) Get a costume change


Luke Cage; make the guy iconic again



16) Lose a limb


Daredevil; The guy just can't get a break.



17) Become gay


MALE: MODOK; If only to see him in a pride parade
FEMALE: Wasp; sorry Hank, no happy ending for you



18] Meddle with the occult


Sentry; Maybe it can provide him a challenge; and he's already the be-all-end-all for everything else, might as well add magic



19) Acquire a sidekick (who)


Iron Fist; Shang-Chi



20) Quit


Captain America; Steve learns how to function in today's world; Outsider looking on the inside; Tries to reconnect with America; Vision quest



21) Become their teen/older self


Runaways; 6 months as their older selves; Forced to confront what it's like to be an adult



22) Be brought "back to their roots"


Nick Fury; Hard core spy stuff; No more LMDs; Touch of Jack Bauer and Tom Clancy



23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD


The Thing; New York cop - street patrol



24) Take over a country


Hulk; Get working on the Maestro thing already



25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue

THE RULES
1) Turn into a killer
[b] Tony Stark. Its time for Tony to fall from grace...hard. I'm talking The Crossing hard. Someone else needs to be Iron Man.

2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate
Spiderman. Could work well for the character, if it could be written as such.

3) Become a villain
Rogue and her faction of the Xmen. Its already chock full of villains, and I think Rogue needs to go batshit insane from all the powers and voices she has.

4) Become a hero (if a villain)
Exodus. He's pretty much been a blank slate and I think the Xmen need more BIG guns.

5) Have someone else take up their super identity
Carnage. Carnage needs to be fucking terrifying. Give him to someone who's batshit insane, like not even coherent and watch the fun.

6) Die
Tony Stark. See above.

7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)
Ben Reilly. Get Brubaker to write it.


8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)
Nightcrawler and Scarlet Witch. The idea works SO well. Bring back non-crazy Scarlet Witch looking for redemption, Nightcrawler helps her along the way and the two eventually become a couple.

9) Join a team they hadnt been in before
The Thing joins the Avengers. Time for Ben to hit the big leagues.

10) Get turned on by the hero community
Tony Stark....again. Tony Stark's gotta go down. Its inevitable.

11) Have a kid
Spiderman....again. Spidey needs a kid.

12) Get stranded on another planet
Thor. I like this idea.

13) Wind up in jail
Quicksilver. Paying for his crimes from House of M.

14) Get an "evil twin"
Honestly, who the hell doesn't have an evil twin?

15) Get a costume change
Iron Fist. Make it more ninja like and keep some elements from the past while updating it for today.

16) Lose a limb
Again, have Iron Fist lose the hand he doesn't use for Iron

17) Become gay
Wolverine

18] Meddle with the occult
Quicksilver. I want him to really be the hero who KNOWS he's doing the right thing in his own mind and will do anything to restore mutant kind.

19) Acquire a sidekick (who)
Wolverine and Northstar sittin in a tree.

20) Quit
Tony Stark

21) Become their teen/older self
Thor. I dig an older, war grizzled Thor.

22) Be brought "back to their roots"
Captain America.

23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD
Wolverine, I think he works better this way....and gay.

24) Take over a country
Dr. Doom overthrows US government.

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue
Spiderman by Venom

1) Turn into a killer
Speed. While with the Young Avengers, he goes too far and the team is forced to question whether or not he can be trusted, or if he is just as insane as his 'mother' Scarlet Witch.

2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate
Jaime Madrox. Having issues with the dupe who joined SHIELD, he decides to take a break, leaving M in charge of X Factor Investigations.

3) Become a villain
Penance. From the influence of the other Thunderbolts, Baldwin turns on what he knows and goes balistic. Thanks a lot, Norman.

4) Become a hero (if a villain)
Mac Gargan. After losing the symbiote to Eddie Brock, Gargan is forced to rethink his life, and returns to his Scorpion persona, but as a hero.

5) Have someone else take up their super identity
Thor. Yeah, Captain America is given control of Mjolnir. Deal with it, for some reason.

6) Die
Captain Marvel. The CM displaced from time dies before the cancer gets him, which causes chaos. Who's responsible? Kang the Conquerer.

7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)
Scarlet Spider. Ben Reilly returns from the grave.

8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)
Namor and Sue Storm. Come on, Reed doesn't deserve her.

9) Join a team they hadnt been in before
Arana. She joins the Young Avengers. I wanna see that.

10) Get turned on by the hero community
Mister Fantastic. With his creation of Number 42, the heroes lose a little bit of trust and are willing to kick some stretchy ass.

11) Have a kid
She-Hulk. She has a child with-not her husband-Tony Stark. That man loves to spread the seed.

12) Get stranded on another planet
Wonder Man. He accidentally sends himself to another planet in a fight with the Skrull alongside the Mighty Avengers.

13) Wind up in jail
Nick Fury. He is a wanted man, after all. What a naughty man.

14) Get an "evil twin"
Cable. Inexplicably, another man from the future claiming to be a twin of Cable's shows up and attacks both he and Deadpool.

15) Get a costume change
Echo. Come on, have something interesting on as you fight. Bright, primary colors.

16) Lose a limb
USAgent. Because he deserves it, alright?

17) Become gay
H.E.R.B.I.E. Full on gay robot. I hear he's dating Ultron.

18] Meddle with the occult
Clint Barton. After seeing what happened to Wanda, he is brought to an attempt to bring her back to her old self, which may not be a good thing.

19) Acquire a sidekick (who)
Spider-Man. Arana would be an amazing sidekick. After she loses faith in the Initiative, she goes rogue and teams with Spidey.

20) Quit
Kitty Pryde. Because she needs to. It's hilarious.

21) Become their teen/older self
Professor Xavier. Back to walking around and all youthful after some sort of magic event with Doctor Strange, Magneto now wants to re-cripple the bald wonder. Excellent.

22) Be brought "back to their roots"
Wolverine. Logan lapses into a very violent time, and goes wild in the woods. Perhaps even killing a friend.

23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD
Blade. After a situation that Blade is needed for, Blade joins a sector of SHIELD that focuses on the supernatural.

24) Take over a country
Elektra. Elektra makes a large rise in Japan, to the point where she has taken total control, and that leads to a big superhero bruhaha.

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue
Daredevil, by the Kingpin. Shit proceeds to hit the fan.

It's kind of interesting to see how many of these questions seem to have popped up in themes at Marvel recently.

Patrick J
03-02-2007, 07:28 AM
1) Turn into a killer

The Sentry. But be smart about him. Have him killing people left and right and the other heroes of the Marvel U. won't even know or suspect either him or The Void. They'll just be like "Whatever happened to that guy?" not realizing that he's been tossed into the sun.

2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate

Nightcrawler goes to Japan.

3) Become a villain

Incredible Hulk moves further and further towards becoming the Maestro
and
Namor: The Sub-Mariner, granted he kinda skates the line between hero and villain already according to some. Have him make a hard, definate turn towards villainy.

4) Become a hero (if a villain)

Dr. Doom, still maintains villainy but becomes less of a villain, acting heroically in fights against Namor and The Hulk.

5) Have someone else take up their super identity

Copycat Punishers.

6) Die

Jim Rhodes. It'll be Tony's fault.

7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)

Genis-Vell. Pulls himself back together after having his molecules spread across time. Starts training and working with his father.

8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)

Ares and Black Widow.

9) Join a team they hadnt been in before

Not neccesarily join the team per se, but Cable restarts X-Force with Deadpool as a member in good standing.

10) Get turned on by the hero community

Thor. When he returns many have a hard time believing it's him.

11) Have a kid

Scott Summers and Emma Frost.

12) Get stranded on another planet

Thor returns, nobody believes him and nobody wants him around. The image of the 'Clor' killing Goliath has hurt his reputation. Thor seeks guidance from Odin who is not yet returned so he goes into space to seek him and the other Asgardians.

13) Wind up in jail

J. Jonah Jameson for not revealing confidential sources to Tony Stark.

14) Get an "evil twin"

Valeria Richards. Born invisible, taken away by Doctor Doom. The "evil" one will be from the future.

15) Get a costume change

Iron Man. In light of the fact that he's now director of SHIELD, Tony's armor should reflect that and should color coordinate with SHIELD. Dark Blue/Black and White with some Red, White and Blue.

16) Lose a limb

Wolverine. He loses an arm and for whatever reason, magic perhaps, it doesn't grow back. And I don't mean just a hand, I mean the whole damn arm he loses. And no bone metal appendage that's still there. Whole arm, up to the shoulder... GONE!

17) Become gay

Guido Carosella, Stong Guy

18] Meddle with the occult

Hawkeye. Does all kinds of stupid shit to figure out what the hell's going on with himself and with Wanda. Him and Nightcrawler.

19) Acquire a sidekick (who)

Meh... I hate sidekicks anyway. Maybe The Punisher.

20) Quit

Nobody. Maybe She-Hulk quits being a hero and just becomes a full-time lawyer.

21) Become their teen/older self

Franklin Richards, again.

22) Be brought "back to their roots"

Fantastic Four lead by Franklin Richards. Go on globe trotting adventures into new dimensions, making discoveries etc. etc. etc.

23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD

Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic if we can't consider him one already really.

24) Take over a country

Incredible Hulk takes over Australia
Namor takes over South America.

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue

The Punisher.

18] Meddle with the occult

"Eye of the Beholder"

Dissatisfied with losing not one, but two significant people in his life to otherworldly interference, Hawkeye turns to some shady occult types in the Marvel U. He studies with Madame Web. He pays Wong to copy some information from Dr. Strange's library. He has long, involving conversations with Dormammu. As a result, he prepares himself to first rescue Mockingbird from Hell. After that, he is going to restore both Wanda's mind and her magic powers, hoping that she will resolve the struggles that have occurred since House of M and the resultant Civil War.

Will Hawkeye prevail, or will he learn that it's best to not try and control fate, just run with it? Always the rebel, will he be discouraged when confronted by Steve Rogers, and then the entire new lineup of the New Avengers?

I think I'll be hated more than Chuck Austen for a lot of these, but I have the excuse that I'm just being silly and this isn't real. :D


I only picked some points, not all.

--------------------------

4) Become a hero (if a villain)
Sabretooth. It's been (sort of) done before. I really liked how he was in Age of Apocalypse. This is just wishful thinking because the character is mentally scarred and has a sort of "bloodlust". I think a powerful telepath might do the trick into making those aspects of him fade -- which could, in turn, bring up some questionable morality points about the telepath and have Creed questioning himself and his actions.


6) Die
Mary Jane Watson-Parker. :) .... :twisted:


8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)
Ultimate Spider-Man and Firestar. :D


11) Have a kid
I'd like to see a single parent that's a superhero in the Marvel Universe (that isn't one already). I can't recall any single parents instead of Annie the Mary Sue Nurse (who isn't a superhero anyway). :-?

13) Wind up in jail
Tony Stark.


14) Get an "evil twin"
Xavier. Waiiiiiit. Um. Reed Richards?


15) Get a costume change
Iron Fist. I think of 7-Up cans everytime I see his costume. He needs something new.


17) Become gay
Ms. Marvel as a lesbian. Or bisexual. Can that count?


19) Acquire a sidekick (who)
The Punisher. Some teen or young adult who had his family killed in front of his eyes similarly can tag along with Frank who, naturally, doesn't want him along. It's like a buddy-cop movie except with lots of deaths and guns and explosions and torture.


20) Quit
Daredevil. Perhaps as a result of an ultimatum from his (current) wife?


23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD
An alternate-universe (meaning, no Civil War) Luke Cage as a legit cop could be interesting. His street-wise mentality and notoreity could make for some interesting judgement calls on his behalf. Could also throw in some social commentary on members of the NYPD and their perceived racism and use of lethal force. He'll quit in the end, though.

Clint Barton. After seeing what happened to Wanda, he is brought to an attempt to bring her back to her old self, which may not be a good thing.

21) Become their teen/older self
Professor Xavier. Back to walking around and all youthful after some sort of magic event with Doctor Strange, Magneto now wants to re-cripple the bald wonder. Excellent.

Someone please write these. I'm sold.

This is hard since I know so little about Marvel anymore

1) Turn into a killer
Cyclops - The character's so boring, let's give him his powers back (he still doesn't have them, right?) and have him go on a killing spree a la Berserker Wolverine.

2) Turn their back on their supporting cast and relocate
Emma Frost - It was a matter of time before she went back to creating another Hellions-like team (even if she isn't completelyt over what happened to the last group)

3) Become a villain
Beast - Spice up this other boring character a bit by making him a bad guy.

4) Become a hero (if a villain)
Venom - They tried this a couple times, right?

5) Have someone else take up their super identity
Daredevil - Since Mat Murdock's always rumored to be other people, it'd be interesting to see someone else take his place for a while as DD.

6) Die
Spider-man - Because it'd be bigger than killing Cap.

7) Come back from the dead (if already dead)
Illyana Rasputin -- She shows up as an adult and joins one of the X-teams

8] Hook up with another hero (who and who)
Dr. Strange -- Get's it on with Zatanna, thanks to a rift in the interdimentional core, creating a cross company love affair up there with the Capulets and Montagues.

9) Join a team they hadnt been in before
Molly (Runaways) - Since she's a mutant there's a chance she could fit in well with one of the X-teams when she gets older.

10) Get turned on by the hero community
Professor X - For years and years he did everything for mutant-kind. But what if he did something that suddenly had them reject him. Mutants AND humans against Professor X?

11) Have a kid
The Thing - Just so he could name the kid "Rocky"

12) Get stranded on another planet
Ghost Rider - And the other planet would look strangely like HELL!

13) Wind up in jail
Reed Richards - Sometimes even the most intelligent people do something incredibly wrong. I'm sure he'll end up trying to represent himself as his own lawyer as well.

14) Get an "evil twin"
Gambit - It'd be sort of like Jack and Wicked John from Jack of Fables.

15) Get a costume change
Captain America - Just in time for his "resurrection"

16) Lose a limb
Nightcrawler - It'd be interesting if they gave him a cybernetic leg or something.

17) Become gay
The Hulk - Sounds scary, right? All that pent up rage is just because he's uncomfortable with coming out with the truth of his sexuality.

18] Meddle with the occult
Storm - After all of the old battles with Dracula in the Claremont X-Men days, maybe she gets "turned" once and for all?

19) Acquire a sidekick (who)
Thor, and his new sidekick Ares

20) Quit
Wolverine - He's gotta get tired of all this crap sooner or later

21) Become their teen/older self
Ice-Man: The quintessential immature guy eventually grows up and then some. Due to some strange happenings comes back in his late 30s with full on Ice-Elemental abilities. Controls weather and everything with powers amped up to the Nth degree

22) Be brought "back to their roots"
Cloak and Dagger. Surprised they aren't around a lot more.

23) Become a cop/Agent of SHIELD
Luke Cage: Agent of Shield. Has a nice ring to it, right?

24) Take over a country
Punisher - Let him rule Colombia

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue
Iron Man - Assuming half of the Marvel U hates him right now, it's only a matter of time before one of his arch enemies guns for full out revenge (with some help from an Anti-Registration hero maybe?)

15) Get a costume change

Hulk- In a step to becoming the Maestro the Hulk starts to wear clothes mostly battle armour in honour of his dead wife.

16) Lose a limb

In this moment Daken grabs the blade and severs Logan's right hand off leaving it unable to regrow.

His son Hulkling rejects his father’s offer wishing to be his own man and not live under the weight of being Captain Marvel. This leads Marvel to wonder who could take his mantle, cue a chance meeting with Gravity.

20) Quit

Falcon- Cap's Death hit Sam Wilson hard he vowed to find who killed him, after beating back HYDRA and AIM he is shocked to find his actual killer is the woman who stood by his side so many times before. The news that Sharon Carter killed Steve rocks Sam to the core so much that he quits the superhero game if only to get away from New York and away from all those involved in Steve's death.

However the computer that looked over Providence since it was an orbital space platform sprang into action and started an "Emergency Temporal shift". Combined with the force of the explosion and the damage the computer sustained Nate wakes up several months later suddenly looking like X-Man...

The Symkarian royal family is overthrown and Maximus has proclaimed himself king. Using Luna he can gain the control of the leaders of surrounding nations and has already gained a vast network of political allies. Though it would seem Doctor Doom is not so easily brought in.

25) Be part of a long intricate revenge by their number one rogue

The Sentry- Recently it seems the Sentry has been feeling better but sudden black outs and somewhat off character behaviour make him feel he is losing his mind again. The Void who can in reality never be killed has been seeping back into the Sentry’s mind.
