Hi all,

As many of you may know, I've begun the process of doing a series of drawings redesigning Marvel characters as part of my re-imagining of the Marvel Universe. The first piece, a redesign of Scarlet Witch, has been really well-received and I want to thank you all for showing up to provide feedback. I hope you'll continue to do so on future pieces.

Moving forward, I'd love to involve you all in getting your input on the future of this series and to find out what characters you'd like to see me draw. As mentioned in the comment box for Scarlet Witch's piece, I'm sectioning off the Marvel Universe into various groupings. I've listed the teams under these groupings below as well as the context and background for each one. I'd love for you all to have a browse through these and then let me know who you'd like to see on what teams. Your opinions are valued, but I can't guarantee I'll include all the characters suggested.

THE AVENGERS

Once America's premiere superhero team, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s elite super-powered unit known as the Avengers has been all but destroyed. When the Scarlet Witch was kidnapped and brainwashed by Hydra, she went mad and nearly brought about Armageddon. The Avengers managed to stop their wayward teammate, but not without casualties. The Hulk and Ant-Man perished in the final battle and both S.H.I.E.L.D. and Hydra have been left in ruin. Six months later, a new power is making a play for control of the world. To combat this, a new group of Avengers have formed.

Note: The Avengers line-up prior to the Scarlet Witch's breakdown would have consisted of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk (deceased), Ant-Man (deceased), Wasp, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch. The new line-up will be comprised of seven members. Some of them can be from the previous roster, but Hulk, Ant-Man, and Scarlet Witch.

THE DARK AVENGERS

Following her mental breakdown, the Scarlet Witch has sought out the aid of Doctor Strange to help her on her quest for redemption. Inspired by Wanda's willingness to learn and do good, Doctor Strange has assembled a team of supernaturally-empowered heroes to combat magical and otherworldly threats.

Note: The roster will be limited to seven members, including Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch.

THE UNCANNY X-MEN

Following the deaths of Professor Charles Xavier and Jean Grey in the massacre of the Dark Phoenix, anti-mutant sentiments are on the rise and it is no longer safe for mutants on the street. With Cyclops missing, it's up to X-Men mainstay Storm to carry on Xavier's mission of peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants. She's assembled a new team of X-Men and will fight tooth and nail to protect mutants.

Note: The roster will be limited to seven members, including team leader Storm. Jean Grey and Cyclops will not appear on the roster for the aforementioned reasons.

THE THUNDERBOLTS

With the X-Men and Avengers seemingly torn apart, the United States government has implemented a program to manipulate several incarcerated criminals into becoming the new face of heroics. This questionable initiative has placed some of the most dangerous criminals back on the street and are fighting the very people they once fought alongside. 

Note: Think of this less as what we've seen so far with the Thunderbolts and more like Marvel's answer to DC Comics' Suicide Squad or Secret Six. The team will be comprised of roughly six or seven members.

WEB WARRIORS

After receiving a frightening vision of the future, Madame Web has assembled a team of four heroines in an attempt to prevent it from coming true. These four heroines have seemingly nothing in common, but must put aside their differences for the greater good.

Note: This team will likely be comprised of Spider-Man heroines and/or Daredevil ones. I see this as a response to DC Comics' Birds of Prey (Marvel desperately needs a gritty, action heroine team).

Depending on the success of these drawings and groups, I may continue and include others. For now, I'd love to know what you think. Let me know what characters you'd like to see on each team.

Thanks!

Consider it reported. :)

It's really irritating how every three months I'm having to deal with art theft. People need to have a few seats and realize it's not okay to take someone's art and use it without their permission.

I reported this guy before I went to bed. Take a look at his gallery, very little of his work is original and I don't think most of his stuff is actually his.

Unfortunately, there are so many people out there whose galleries are rife with pieces taken from other sources. For the most part, a lot of these people tend to be very young or they tend to not know better. Nevertheless, that's really no excuse for not at least having the consideration to ask for the usage of something first on here.

Luckily, I at least have some really great people who notify me when these things happen. I'm incredibly grateful for that because it shows that there are individuals out there who will stand up when something is amiss.

I'm sure you've seen Gal Gadot in her Wonder Woman costume. If so, what are your thoughts on the design?

I'm in agreeance with Gail Simons's tweets on the matter. It's not perfect (could use a smidge of color, should lose the heels), but it's kind of great. She looks badass.

i like your take on the dc comics teams, which leads me to ask what your thoughts are on the introduction of the wildstorm characters into the mainstream dc universe?
