    That would be an interesting idea. It'd add a personal dimension to his rivalry with the Yancy St. Gang, as some might respect him for "making it out" and others might resent him for what they feel is him "selling out."

    How old is he in relation to Reed?

    My own eventual tweak to Alpha Flight. Whatever goes on around everyone else, eventually the Master of the World is taken down for good, and the Plodex ship responds now to it's true 'Master,' Marrina Smallwood. It can't fly, but it's a massive base full of alien super-tech, and the gathering point for every other Plodex on the planet, who are barely sentient, and all of which also instinctively recognize her as 'the boss.' She may not be 'Master of the World,' but she's a big, big deal on her corner of it. All sorts of governments and cabals have all sorts of thoughts about all that sweet, sweet alien tech. And it only answers to her, with her Plodex DNA. The base could become a veritable city, perhaps occupied by refugees with no where else to go (alien refugees, perhaps, like Skrulls, who can't really seek asylum anywhere else on the planet, and no longer have a homeworld of their own, primarily due to an earth-woman leading Galactus there...).

    Expand on Jubilee's powers now that she got them back, namely how receiving a portion of the Phoenix Force supercharged them when it restored her powers and cured her of vampirism. As to what direction I would take with it, think Fetch's neon powers from Infamous: Second Son/First Light which in themselves were designed with Jubilee in mind.

    Iím working on the hook. Eshuís origin is currently very Vandal Savage-esque. Heís a 4,000 and some change year old nomadic hunter who wandered into an alien ship and came out a mastermind. I kind of hate how similar it is to Apocalypseís story. I am tempted to work the Great Beasts back into it; substituting them for the Plodex aliens. Like he managed to kill one of the lesser beasts so, recognizing him as a rare specimen, the Beasts came to an arrangement with Eshu. What struck me in my research was the masquerading as a political figure. It was already part of my revamp before getting to know the character. I like a villain who is a little off and has a dark sense of humor. So my version would definitely be different people during different era. He wants influence and to find exceptional people he can dominate. He monitors but not always from a distance like Doom or Thanos. He has a perverse curiosity about people despite being an antisocial nomad for much of his life. Itís mainly to toy with them. Thatís why he often has a hand in creating the threats that alpha flight encounters. Monsters roaming around reminds him of his childhood. He will eventually feel very much at home in Weird World.

    Would she be a hero or something else? Last we saw of her she resembled a giant sea serpent. Well it was the last that I saw of her; not having read the fear itself story.

    I like your take on the Master of the World.

    Hmm, that would definitely be interesting.

    Skeeter: Hey time traveling O5 members of the X-Men We don't take kindly to people who create a time paradox around here!

    Bartender: Now calm down Skeeter they aint hurtin nobody.

    Skeeter: No! I wanna know som'in from the "O5" How come you cant go back to your own timeline in the first place and how come when Reed Richards "fixed" the universe you wasnt put back and how come the changes that happn to you dont happn to your present day selves?

    She's back to humanoid, inexplicably, although her hair is darker (black with a tint of green, as opposed to the lighter green Byrne used) and she's all 'woo, aliens! Humans suck!' for no obvious reason. I picture her being pretty stationary, sticking to her burgeoning community which is A) kinda hated by everyone else on earth, and yet B) totally preferred to having all these aliens / Plodex / whatever skulking around the entire planet. She will, paradoxically, get along *mostly* well with the local Nunavut authorities, despite being plonked down in the middle of their territory (Shaman might have something to do with that, as he massages tensions and yet also tries to keep her from stirring things up. Aliens are not allowed to wander out and kill reindeer for food, for instance, but have to stick to purchased stuff, or machine-made synthetics, and that would be the sort of thing that would cause friction, a couple Plodex sneaking out and killing a bunch of reindeer for funsies...).

    But she's more of a state-leader like Namor or T'Challa or Dr. Doom or Black Bolt than a traditional super-hero, at this point (and like those four, might get called out and mix it up, from time to time).

    It'd be neat, IMO, to add a lady to the list of 'runs their own community' types, like the above-mentioned dudes, and there's a ton of alien refugees out there, and already a fair number scattered around on Earth, so having a specific community for them, that can support itself with the Plodex tech (responsive to boss-lady's instructions), which can probably generate power, synthesize food, etc. and provide some sort of carefully-measured scientific research into said tech (or just sell goods the Plodex machines can create) to buy other stuff (and since any of that interaction would likely go through Nunavut intermediaries, they'd get a cut, and it would be a potential resource to them as well, with the argument being 'it was here under us all along, why shouldn't we get some benefit from it?').

    Thanks for the clarification. Very interesting rework. I think someone like Superia or Zarda should have established a nation state by now.

    Definitely interesting. I could have seen Superia taking over A.I.M. Island, for example, at least before Sunspot bought out A.I.M. as a whole.

    Superia feels a little over the top, like a misandrist caricature. Zarda might be an interesting choice, though, or Moonstone, but I wanted more of a Namor / Black Bolt / T'Challa analogue, than a Dr. Doom, someone who might have some conflicted interests, and end up opposing some heroes for political reasons, but isn't actually a super-villain.

    That makes more sense. I could see that.

    1. I'd like Revamp Hellcat (Patsy Walker). After the NEtflix Jessica Jones show, she's got a special place in my heart now. I think she needs a revamp. I would probably explore more of her supernatural side. In the comics wasn't she married to like the son of Satan or something like that. I'd make her something a traveling Paranormal Investigator kinda like Constantine only without the swearing and English accent LOL. She could study under Doc Strange or maybe she might be more interested in Dark Magic.

    2. I would also Revamp Maria Hill. She can be a decent character sometimes. I would have her strike out on her own and start her own spy company but it would half-comedy half-serious, almost like Archer. She would be like a younger Malory Archer.

    I like your ideas, especially the second. However, she's burned so many bridges by this point, I'm just wondering who would still be willing to join her.
