    Default Top reasons why Marvel should get the rights to Youngblood

    I’m a big fan of Youngblood thus I think Marvel should get the rights to Youngblood from the publishing company that I’m not exactly sure of the name but here¬’s my reasons:
    1) Youngblood and Supreme would be a great addition
    2)Badrock just says Disney
    3)Supreme and Suprema are way cooler than Sentry
    4) Youngblood would be a great rivalry for the Avengers
    5) Cable would have more friends
    6) Spider-Man and Hawkeye would be able to hit on Suprema Vogue and Riptide
    7) Badrock misses Spider-Man & Wolverine
    8) Liefeld would be able to work with writers that won¬’t quit during the first issue
    9) Hawkeye, Winter Soldier and Falcon could lead Team Youngblood
    10) I would be able to get Youngblood monthly instead of every blue moon

    I know people aren’t a Liefeld fan but I really like Badrock, Suprema and Riptide

    Supreme? Doesn't Marvel already have enough Superman homages running around with Gladiator, Hyperion, Miracleman (who is more Shazam than Superman, but according to the courts, Shazam = Superman, so...) and others? More to the point, aren't all of Liefeld's creations basically reinterpretations/knock-offs of existing characters from other publishers? Not an original concept in the bunch.

    If Marvel were to buy Youngblood, the odds are pretty high that they'll just bury the property like it did with Ultraverse, CrossGen, etc., etc. You might be lucky enough to get a story arc or two out of it, but I doubt any of those characters stick around. As it stands, they're having a hard enough time fitting Angela into the scheme of things without it seeming forced.

    I'd love to see Liefeld's characters in the MU. That dude that stole them from Liefeld isn't even doing anything with them anyway and doesn't seem like he'll come out with anything.

    DC: Not much these days, but being cautiously optimistic for Shazam! (2018-2019) and Young Justice

    See, I disagree with having them be chumming with the Avengers. I'd set them up as X-men rivals. They would be the X-Men equivalent to Squadron Supreme. Mutant heroes from another dimension stuck in our world.
    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    With a name like Youngbloods, they sound like a street gang. Isn't there a teen group of Avengers, New Mutants, Strange Academy, Power Pack, Tadpole Thor Frogs, something, that they can square off against?

    Uhmm I have one word :Malibu

    Okay I have two words New Universal

    Wait Wait I have three words Ultimate Marvel Universe

    Marvel is horrible at handling outside properties and characters from other universes. Anyways Youngblood is dead that because owner isn't giving up the rights to it so only way you are going to see Youngblood is if the owner dies or they get hit with some super financial problems.

    That was something I was to say too. Sadly, Marvel bought the Ultraverse just to kill it.

    LOL! I totally understand where you're coming from, and I feel the same way. But personally, My Top (3) Three Favorites would be...

    Rob Liefeld's Chapel (Jae Lee version)





    Rob Liefeld's Diehard (Joe Mad version)





    Rob Liefeld's Prophet (S.PLATT version)

    Doesn't Marvel own most of the characters that Youngblood ripped off?

    Who needs 'Troll' when you have Wolverine?

    That’d be a fun way to incorporate them.
    Once the X-Men get back to normal it’d be a fun storyline to pursue.

    Pretty much. Like I said earlier, there's not an original concept anywhere to be found, except for maybe the names of some of the characters.

    That said, plenty of people gush over Deadpool even though he started out as a blatant ripoff of the Terminator/Deathstroke. Ahhhh, comics. The one place where you can find both some of the brightest minds of any readership community, and yet some of the most cerebrally flat-lined as well.

    It wouldn't shock me to see Marvel buy characters that they basically already own just because the packaging is different.

    This never came out because reportedly Tom DeFalco told Rob if it did Marvel would sue. Afterwards, we got Youngblood which was a reworked Teen Titans pitch.
