    Default Amalgam characters: BRING THEM BACK

    I didn't know where to put this thread at(feel free to move)so I put it in Independenents. I recently discovered the Amalgam Universe again & would like to see the titles in some kind of mini series/crossover event of some kind preferably one that involves the DC & or Marvel's multiverses. IMHO,I think many fans have forgotten how entertaining the Amalgam Universe was Dark Claw,Super Soldier and Dr.Strangefate are incredible characters that I wish could of been ongoing titles because the one shots just peeked my curiosity.
    Why do I wish in every DC event that Spiderman & Captain America would come to the rescue ?? FOOD 4 THOUGHT!

    I would agree. If I could do it, I would license the characters out to a third party. This way neither Marvel nor DC is "in charge." Let them do 4 titles, 2 solo, one team, and perhaps a two member team book. The price would be a bit higher. But sales would be all right, nothing spectacular. But there would be a lot of buzz and interest.
    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.

    Absolutely correct here with one problem as I see it. The Original Amalgams appeared to be done by newer creative teams who actually seemed to enjoy what they were doing. This as the comment below yours suggests needs to be done outside the House of Marvel and the House of DC. No editorial interference or final approval from either company.

    I can only imagine the negotiation headaches in this one. The original came about, largely, due to the friendly relationship between Mark Gruenwald and Mike Carlin. That allowed the DC/Marvel crossovers of the era to be a heck of a lot less political than the previous ones. These days, with both companies part of massive entertainment conglomerates? it would probably make the Paris Peace Accords look like swapping recipes.

    The Amalgam Universe would thrive outside the borders of the DC & Marvel "universes" thus giving fans of both companies a creative & different alternative to those some times confusing continuities. Amalgam was an interesting & creative series of titles that should of had a longer run than a few issues

    I had to back track these since I wasn't buying comics at the time these came out. I wonder if Marvel also had Malibu or Clive Barkers Horror verse or whatever it was called. Too many projects at the same time syndrome? Or as codystarbuck seems to suggest the right editors in alignment at the right time?

    Look who showed up as cameos in IDW's Infestation crossover a few years back.




    I figured I'd share this.

    Super Soldier and Amazon? How did they get away with that?

    And Iron Lantern!

    Sure they're only there for one pannel, but it's pretty blatant that it's them.

    I think the only real way we’ll get anything like this is through fan content.
    Maybe we’ll get lucky and get some more content in 2087 or something when we’re all close to our deathbeds.
