    Default Howabout : Underworld unleashed in the MU?

    U.W, in case you don't know, was where Dc bad guys such as Killer Moth got an upgrade and took on the Heroes.

    Who would you fix in the MU?

    Example: Punisher baddie Jigsaw gets a handsome face again and becomes a more confident, ruthless crook.


    Who would you upgrade?

    An upgrade that came straight from hell and bound the receiver's soul to Neron, to eternally belong to him in his realm upon death . . . Hmm, tradeoffs. As for whom I'd have make a deal with one of the devils of the Marvel Universe, though . . . I could maybe see the Shocker, long since sick and tired of being treated like a joke, or perhaps Doctor Octopus going back to his Superior (Spider-Man/Octopus) form by bargaining with a different devil from Mephisto.

    Though not in the form of a hellish upgrade, there was a sort of Marvel version of Underworld Unleashed in the late 80's, a 4 issue mini-series featuring Mephisto against the Marvel Universe, namely it's super-heroes teams such as the Fantastic Four, X-Factor, the Avengers and the X-Men, where he tempted and double-crossed most of the heroes in an attempt to ensnare the purest soul of them all.
    As for who couyld benefit from a hellis upgrade, I always thought the Zodiac Cartel has a lot of untapped potential. This could be a way of making a truely powerful version.

    Peace

    Interesting, especially since Underworld Unleashed, if I recall right, happened in the 90s, and this miniseries by Marvel was in the 1980s. Man, and to think there are people who think all Marvel does is rip off DC.

    That said, to throw my hat back into the ring, how about the Spot and Hydro-Man? Formidable power-sets, to be certain, but otherwise absolute jokes because they're so smalltime in the way they think.

    I'd say both big ones often rip off each other.

    Nice one. And one more time . . . Electro . . . or . . . as he will christen himself after his infernal upgrade . . . "Hellektro!"

    I don't know if there has ever been an evil version of the original Guardians of the Galaxy, but I'd love to see that happen...with some of them getting appropriate power boosts.

    Starhawk = Hell Hawk
    Nikki Gold = Madame Mercury
    Vance Astro = Vance Psycho
    Martinex = Martinet or Dark Martyr
    Charlie 27 = Metalhead
    Yondu Udonta = Udonis Triggerfish

    Calypso back from the dead would be good.
