Based on the first 2 issues that we have so far. If you had to continue writing IC and thus get to shape the future of the DCU, what would you write?
a hot sex scene between Power Girl and SuperGirl.
Someone finally just blowing the Joker's head off, preferably some anonymous cop just gunning him down as he commits a crime.
Who would be the main villain behind it all?
Jim Shooter and Ambush Bug
Who would you kill?
The Power Company
about half of the Teen Titans
Deathstroke, The Terminator
Jim Lee (A generic looking overmuscled character leaps out of the page, grabs a pen and stabs him in the eye, and then goes looking for John Byrne. Talk about breaking the fourth wall!)
Green Arrow (with a stake through his heart this time)
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan with a stake through his heart and his head cut off with his mouth stuffed with garlic and buried at a crossroads during a full moon and doesn't anyone STAY dead any more? And hey, maybe the bastard heros of the DC universe should spend some time trying to resurrect John Lennon, or Bill Hicks, who were unique and irreplaceable rather than a moron character whose claim to fame is that he's really good with a bow and arrow and a Green Lantern, of which there are thousands in the galaxy and a superior replacement on Earth in the form of Kyle Rayner. Yeah, what would I rather have if I were a hero in the DC Universe? Another album by Lennon another performance by Hicks, or some quality time with those two shrieking queens Hal Jordan and Ollie Queen.) Hmmm, somewhere I lost control of that parenthetical phrase.
Multiverse or no?
Mulitiverse, and there would be an evil universe where all of the good characters in our universe were bad in the the other universe and the only way you could tell them apart was by the fact that all of the bad characters (including the women) had sneering, pencil mustaches and goatees.
Who would be prominent characters after the crisis?
Superman and the crew of Star Trek, the old series. And there would be a crossover where the Enterprise travels back in time to stop the explosion of Krypton but can't. And then there could be another episode where Brainiac shrinks down the crew of the Enterprise like he shrunk down the bottled city of Kandor, and the crew of the Enterprise beams over to Kandor to formulate a plan of escape, the title could be, "Bottled City on the Edge of Forever".
Who are going to be the heroes during the crisis?
Major Bummer (it's revealed that MB's earth was part of the multiverse, or Hypertime, or whatever the Hell it is they're calling it today. Roy Thomas will be called in to handle this bit of retconning and the story will actually be pretty good even though it's based on the overly anal attempts by some fanboys to ram everything into the highly overrated straitjacket of continuity.)
And of course, what the hell is "52" gonna be about?
"52" is going to be awesome. It's going to be a comic book about a comic book company's attempt to create some totally huge artificial event, cop some free exposure in other media (I saw two newspaper stories about
"Identity Crisis"), and get idiot fanboys to shell out huge quantities of cash so they can buy the issue with the Lee Cover, the issue with the Perez cover, the issue with the Lee/Perez double gatefold that does a homage to Steranko's pioneering work on "Nick Fury: Agent of Shield" and the foil
embossed cover and the cover with the embossed hologram. One issue will come out each week detailing what happened the week before and the hard-bitten, main editor with a brutal past who has to beat his writers and artists upside the head to get them to meet their deadlines will be based on Kiefer Sutherland.
The series will be written by Warren Ellis, Garth Morrison, an ape creature that was spontaneously generated from a mass of hair that Alan Moore shed and Jim Shooter. Jack Chick will do pencils and inks and some friggin bunch of computer geeks at some bargain basement lab with an overly cute name will do the coloring and lettering.
The series will be generated in a new format, two inches by three and one half inches, called the "Prestige Tract" format. This will make it possible to distribute the series at such non-traditional locales as bus stations,
telephone booths, men's restrooms, the lobbies of motor lodges in the southern states and from that really creepy overly religious kid you went to junior high who just sort of disappeared after high school.
