"Bobby Bad Ideas (BBI), the new CEO of Disney is super into whichever changes you pick in the medium we pick that can never be reversed and is the CEO of Disney from 2020 to 2044 he spends his entire tenure boosting this concept that you pick: he thinks having multiple versions of a character is a needlessly confusing so marvel pulls a new 52 and continuity is abruptly hammered into the shape of the MCU with the X-men in their own parallel dimension, the only parallel dimension for the X-Men movie franchise, so the fantastic Four don’t exist, Spider-Man is a kid again, and the Wasp is Hope, Iron Man is dead, etc. like the Star Wars Comics, Marvel comics have to mesh with whatever the movies and TV shows say, and are explicitly subordinate to the movie and TV continuity. BBI did not see the Spider-Verse movie and does not care to. OR BBI fucking loves Hank Pym, and the most important relationship in the Marvel Universe is the rock-solid marriage/partnership and love between Hank and Jan, Ant-Man and the Wasp, founders and leaders of the Avengers. Hank and Jan’s entire history is retconned to have always been a functional and successful adult relationship, and they are at the center of every crossover and line-wide event for the foreseeable future, it is kind of like how John Byrne’s reboot of Superman post-Crisis burned everything and rebuilt, except it’s grotesque. " Jeff Wickstrom Hank Hank 504
"Interesting characters OR interesting plot?" Mike Donahue Characters Welcome Characters Welcome 504
"Fish OR fowl?" Noah Chevalier Fowl Fowl 504

"The only comics that exist are superhero comics, OR there are no superhero comics?" Isabel M Superheroes Let a million genres bloom 504
"Participate in the a Great Outdoor Fight, OR spend those three days staying inside Pat and Nice Pete’s house?" Andrew Robertson Fight Fight 507
"BBI has a time machine and is determined to meddle with the history of Spider-Man. You can only stop him from changing one of these two fundamental aspects of Spider-Man: the Spider-Man title is forever and always in the scary 90s Spider-Man font OR the Spider-Man theme song is forever and always the 90s animated Joe Perry wailing guitar theme music?" Owen Stop the Font Stop the Font 509
"Patrick Stewart leaves ST:TNG at the start of season 4, but comes back once every couple seasons as a guest star, and Jonathan Frakes takes over the lead with Riker becoming captain in the storyline - as a result TNG becomes kind of like a soap opera with a rotating cast as new crew member join and leave the Enterprise and the show is still on the air today after 30 years like an American equivalent to Doctor Who, however it has none of the original cast, none of the original writers, and none of the television spin-offs or further feature films were ever made, OR Ronald D. Moore is appointed as the sole show-runner for Star Trek: Enterprise and is given total free rein as to the the direction he takes it in and he uses the ideas he would have used on the Battlestar Galactica reboot and the result is a series which enjoys huge critical acclaim and gets a full seven season run and is followed by more Star Trek movies and television series to the present day, but the downside is that this series is just as divisive among Star Trek fans as The Last Jedi was among Star Wars fans and Star Trek fandom in this alternate universe has been perpetually toxic for the last 10 years and overall is just as bad or worse than Star Wars fandom in the real world." Alistair Pitt Eternal TNG Eternal TNG 509
"Which would you rather have for a week: the enigma force/the uni-power, as wielded by Ray Coffin and Peter Benjamin Parker which turns its wielder into the hero who could be you: Captain Universe, OR the H-Dial, as wielded by Robby Reed and Miguel Montez which taps into the hero-verse to turn it’s ownerss into champions never seen before and perhaps never to be seen again when they dial H E R O?" Josh Sinuson H-Dial H-Dial 509
"Assuming the rules of D&D:5E: you are best friend and the favorite human of an ancient gold dragon, challenge rating 124, page 113 of the Monster Manual, but an adult green dragon, challenge rating 15, page 49 of the Monster manual knows about the relationship and hates that gold dragon - you are a constant pawn in schemes OR you can be any class from the Player’s Handbook at level 20 with one ability of yours at 18, others stay at your real life limit, but a Balor demon, challenge rating 19, page 55 of the monster manual, is after you for the rest of your life?" Nathan Winkleman Balor Demon Dragon Friend 509
"BBI just up and buys DC Comics, and he puts Geoff Johns in charge of integrating DC and Marvel into a single continuity, setting and timeline, and he’s very insistent that Spider-Man and Batman need to be able to team up without there being any cosmic treadmill nonsense, he just drives from New York to Gotham, and it goes without saying that Geoff Johns does not want to get fired, and will oblige with the spirit of Bobby’s command, rather than the letter OR BBI decides that the following character is a dumb, stupid baby, and that they should not appear or ever be mentioned again: Captain America." Jeff Wickstrom Johns Rogers 509
"Would you rather have Spider-Man co-created by Jack Kirby, OR Hulk created by Steve Ditko?" Alexandria Seal Hulk Hulk 509

Nick Netzel Pals Pals 509
"BBI is going to put a crotchety jackass in charge of a franchise they used to do good work in, so either we put Don Rosa in charge of the Duck Tales cartoon, OR John Byrne has creative control over the X-Men in the MCU." Alexandria Dont Don 509
"You’re given the assignment to write a licensed comic for a major fast food chain OR you’re given the assignment to write a license comic for a power tool?" Noah Chevalier Food Food 509

"Write a 6-issue series about a character that could become a lucrative on-going if it sells: Hemo-Goblin OR Ri¢hie Ri¢h?" Charles Arthur Ri¢hie Pit¢h Ri¢hie Pit¢h 509
"The two hosts, and two people of their choice go on a space flight that becomes bombarded with cosmic rays, and the four passengers make a rough but non-fatal crash, landing back on earth to discover they have been given fantastic powers OR the two hosts and one person of their choice go back to the 1980s and join forces with Ric Flair to ride in limousines, fly in jets and put hard times on Dusty Rhodes?" Chad Waggo FF FF 511
"The CEO of Disney, BBI, has made you an offer you can't refuse, and purchased War Rocket Ajax. He's a big fan of the show but can't resist a little executive meddling. He's come up with a few ideas on how to increase the ratings and gives you an ultimatum: you either have Meatwad and Neil in the Kitchen become permanent co-chairs of the show, OR or you introduce a new monthly recurring special that is a retrospective of the comics career of Geoff Johns – Geoff calls in for an interview on the comic at the end of every episode." Owen Hobbes Skyping with Geoff Meatwad's a story, innit? 514
