    Iím not sure how well it would be received but what if Sinestro just lost the ability to wield any lantern ring, say Kyle Rayner using something akin to his former white lantern powers cuts him off from the emotional spectrum. However as the person he is he canít accept this and through his shady dealings he manages to create a wide spread empire under his command. To make matters worse to make it so the green lanterns canít touch him he willfully puts his new empire into the United Planets (yes I know itís new but it has story potential), giving whatever resources he believes will prove him as useful and making it that should the green lanterns ever come for him theyíd be causing an intergalactic war, as well as unintended consequences.

    John Stewart and Wally West travel through Elseworlds in a 21 Jump Street- Bad Boys- style buddy cop adventures. They're just one trouble-making partnership in a set of hundreds of space-time cops working for police Chief Metron.

    Too much baggage.
    I suspect the same could be said of a lot of these ideas here. I guess if this were outside of DC main continuity it would have a chance.

    I'd say outside DC period. Its better off being a creator owned title like Irredeeamable/Incorruptible by Mark Waid.

    Two Wonder Woman stories

    1) Diana helps a group of metahumans who are trying to live their lives with their powers being made public.

    2) Wonder Woman and The Elite. I've thought for a while about how a "Wonder Woman vs the Elite" story would go. While Diana may not agree with their methods obviously, I do think the argument would not be as black and white ("killing is what the bad guys do") but get more into the nuances of situations requiring lethal force and the various consequences that can result from it.

    If it does come to the Elite deciding to come to blows with Diana, I'd also like her to point out to them that she is not only a member of the Justice League and has friends among a few governments but is also a foreign dignitary. This could be interesting as it could lead to Black trying to figure out other ways to clash with Diana while she does the same.

    Black Lightning


    - I'll introduce a villain called White Lightning (or use the DC villain of the same name who already exists), who is a racist bastard, who somehow got lightning powers as well. Hvae this be Black Lightning's arch nemesis. There will be awesome dialogue, racial tension, and will be controversial. Someone like Nehisi Coates, Morrison or Priest should write this.

    I dig this idea and would read it in a heartbeat. I'm curious, which Lantern would you have face off against Sinestro? I think John, as leader of the Corp, would be the best choice to face Sinestro head-on diplomatically, in physically combat (if need be) and in terms of Machiavellian tactics.

    I'm all here for the idea of Christopher Priest (if he'll do it) or Ta-Nehishi Coates on Black Lightning, and i'm morbidly curious what Morrison would do; plus I would welcome the clout Morrison would bring to the character for the "fanboy purist" types. However I'm not sure about that premise, it feels too trite and heavyhanded.

    a Grant Morrison maxiseries where the Music Meister turns all of Freeland into a Grease inspired musical nightmare for Black Lightning? You've cracked the code!

    I'd be willing to trust Coates or Priest with such a story but not Morrison. The man has proven himself incredibly tone deaf when it comes to race at times.

    I've recently realized i'm not a Morrison guy, I wouldn't trust him as being any kind of arbiter of racial enlightenment or anything like that but it's like watching NASCAR; I kinda just wanna see what happens when or if shit reeeeeally goes wrong, ya know? plus, I trust Grant's whole "beating to his own drum" philosophy will make it so disconnected and off in it's own world that, if it's really THAT bad, it'll be easy to ignore.

    This would be an Elseworlds because I personally prefer a Joker with an unknown origin.

    That being said, I always thought it would be interesting if Joker turned out to be the son of Joe Chill.

    Basically, Chill is arrested and a young Joker is now fatherless. Perhaps Joker's mom has already passed on, OR commits suicide shortly after because of depression and humiliation. Either way this event leaves both Bruce and Joker as orphans.

    The story would basically show Joker's younger years, however that would play out.

    Though Joker knows his father is at fault, he also grows a severe hatred of Bruce Wayne. At some point, Joker finds out Wayne is Batman (how? Idk I'm not a writer) and absolutely flips his shit, becoming the Joker.

    Obviously that would have to be fleshed out but that's the gist.

    Oh and at the beginning, right before Chill murders the Waynes, there'll be a scene of him playing cards with young Joker using a new deck. Chill throws out the Joker card, calling it worthless or whatever.

    An Elseworld story along the lines of Stephen King's It except without a killer clown.

    Choose either the original Teen Titans (Dick, Wally, Roy, Donna, Garth, Lilith, Mal), the New Teen Titans (Dick, Donna, Wally, Raven, Gar, Victor, Kori) or the next generation (Tim, Connor, Cassie, Bart, etc...) and have them experience some supernatural, terrifying force that scared them so badly as kids that they made a pact to unite and fight all evil. Years later, that supernatural force returns and the Titans reunite to stop it for good this time.

    Okay, it could be lame but if the right writer and artist did it, it could be terrifying.
