Hello guys and gals around the world! It's time for more of my eXiles line-ups to debut. I'll start with the existing characters:
Spider-Man: The Noir version that had spider-goggles, natural webbing, and a small revolver. Earth-90214
Strange: The new, female Dr. Strange from Marvel 2099. Also possesses the Tallus. Earth-928
Spider-Girl: Everybody's favorite daughter of Spider-Man: May "Mayday" Parker! I thought she'd create an interesting familial relationship with Noir's Spider-Man. Earth-982
the Hood: Parker Robbins from the House of M, and leader of the Masters of Evil. Earth-58163
Whirlwind: The mutant David Cannon, a mutant able to spin at high speeds, infatuated with the Wasp, and calls Counter-Earth home. Earth-616 (Counter-Earth)
Crimson Dynamo: The Ultimate version; was seemingly vaporized, but was actually mutated into a mist form that can temporarily turn solid (How's that for a plot twist?). In the Exiles to regain solid form. Earth-1610
And now for my original characters. Who to choose, who to choose... Ah, here we go...
Black Widow: An alternate Black Widow that was injected with the Super-Soldier Serum. I'm thinking she never left Russia, and she might come from the same Earth as Commissar W. from one of my other earlier eXiles blogs. She'd be the top trainer of all Russian recruits, as Commissar W. trained all German recruits. She'd be the leader of the Soviet Super Soldiers, and perhaps a mutant with organic webbing and electric shocks. Perhaps she'd also have a poison-related ability. The serum also gave her super-strength to the tune of 15 tons, and enhanced durability to endure a 20-foot fall uninjured. She'd also have enhanced agility. She wears the Tallus, and often brags about it. She's in the eXiles to prevent a massacre of her students, but she won't reveal who did it. All she's said is that it was a corrupt Winter Guard/Soviet Super Soldiers agent.
Logan: An alternate Wolverine that became the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. after Nick Fury died in WWII. This Logan does have his mutant powers, but doesn't like using them. He has not had Adamantium grafted to his skeleton. In fact, he never joined Weapon X at all. This Logan has never even met the X-Men, except for when S.H.I.E.L.D. had to deal with them. He took Nick Fury's slowed aging formula, and he is over 200 years old, but only looks no more than 30. He's in the eXiles to prevent a mole in his operation that ends up destroying S.H.I.E.L.D. and prevents its reconstruction. The twist? It's a mind-controlled Wendell Vaughn, a.k.a. Quasar!
Iron Man: A founding member of the Avengers in a reality where Tony Stark died in Vietnam. Who is this Iron Man, you ask? The original idea is that he's one of Hank Pym's A.I's, sort of like a heroic Vision. But other options are that he's that reality's Kang, trying to prevent some unknown tragedy. He could also be Jim Rhodes who heard trouble and went there, to find the Iron Man suit. You guys can decide which one you'd want to see most. But I'd probably go with the A.I. created by Henry Pym. This way, the Avengers totally depend on Hank Pym (since 3 of 5 founding members are related to him). This Iron Man would have super-strength, flight, force blasts, and adamantium shell, just to start. Later, he will discover tractor beams, energy absorption, and cyberpathy. It is unknown what he tries to prevent, but he is a powerful fighting force.
Hulk: An alternate Betty Ross that had mutant powers making her a Hulk-like being. She was one of the first members of the Avengers, but not a founding member. Bruce Banner will later become the Hulk due to a healthy marriage, but for now, he isn't a hero. The fact that anger makes her transform makes the Hulk more threat to mutants on this world. Even J. Jonah Jameson writes about mutants instead of Spider-Man! She is in the Exiles to prevent someone from possessing her, making her decline an offer to join the X-Men, because the X-Men are her only protection from being shot to death by someone afraid of the Hulk.
Black Panther: Storm was left very lonely after her husband's death at the hands of the Man-Ape. But she decided there was something she could do. Taking up the mantle of the Black Panther, Storm begins tracking down a foe that she doesn't think she can defeat. The general consensus is that Black Panther and Storm were killed by Man-Ape, and Shuri is the Panther, but in actuality, Shuri is dead too. But something far worse is on the horizon. Professor Xavier has detected a psychic threat. He assembles the X-Men, but without Storm, to fight this disturbance. But Shadow King was too powerful, and the X-Men were killed. She was entered into the Exiles right before he came for her, in the body of the Man-Ape.
Frost: He has it all. Steven Summers runs Summers Academy; secretly the fortress for the NeXt-Men (next generation of X-Men). He also leads them, as Frost. Using his permanently diamond skin, and the energy that must be expelled daily as either psychic (telepathy) or physical (force blasts), he has lead the X-Men to victory time and time again. But when his mother is killed by Sebastian Shaw, his distress leads to the production of a new Brotherhood. He is trying to prevent Sebastian Shaw from ever existing.
So those are my teams. Let me know what you think in the comments below. And thanks for reading!
