    I took a look at the list, and of the ten, I would like to see Alpha Flight (if done by John Byrne) and Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (if done by Jim Steranko). The rest can rest in peace. ;-)

    In all honesty, Dazzler is the only one with any market potential. Sure all the other titles will go over big within the comics community. But Dazzler if done in today's market place, and done right, could easily spawn an entire industry into itself. If I was in charge, I'd launch the series with a viral appearance of Alison Blaire on American Idol or Dancing with the Stars. She sings, does her light stuff, and walks off. Then later she gets her own weekly show, clothing line, etc. I'd play her as if she was real, not a character. Behind the Music the whole thing.The real problem with that list is that Dakota North. That girl deserves it all.

    What? No love for It, The Living Colossus? Or the Rocket Racer? Or Razorback?

    Didn't Dwayne McDuffie already put out something about black superheroes and the use of skateboards?

    I love Dr. Strange, but I prefer to remember him the way he was, and no Nick Fury story could ever top "What if Sgt. Fury Had Fought World War II in Outer Space?"

      There have been interesting and successful stabs at both Dr. Strange and Nick Fury since their great runs (Ditko and Steranko, respectively), but there have been few great REGULAR runs, in my opinion. I like the idea of keeping them active in the Marvel Universe supporting cast and whipping out a mini-series only when somebody has a truly solid story — with a beginning, a middle, and an end.But, of course, I like all others believe that I have the perfect Dr. Strange story. And the perfect Nick Fury story. And the perfect Ant-Man story, and…

    Dazzler was a joke when she first appeared. I have no idea why Marvel didn't let her die with Disco. Submariner needs a book. Unfortunately every one who does a Subby book wants to do it in a way that's completely wrong. Invaders is a good team but with all stories like that that we know the final fate of these characters. There's not a lot of drama.
