If I wrote for Marvel...

- I would recommend a comic series focusing on SHIELD! not just nick fury. why don't they do this? look at how well shows like West Wing work - it's a great set-up. they'd need some new characters though.
- After reading Ms Marvel last night - as much as i love her, the new series just ain't working for me. They should introduce a new character with her old name of Warbird. it's a name that never worked for Carol, but if they built a character up around the name, it'd be tres cool.
- I'm not a huge fan of the Sentry. Good mini-series, but beyond that, he's pretty bland. But I was reading the latest Illuminati comic - featuring the Beyonder - and I was thinking, how cool would it have been if they'd have used the Beyonder rather than the SEntry. You know, have the Beyonder in the Avengers etc.
(Incidentally, there was a mistake in that Illuminati issue - it was referencing the Secret Wars and showed Prof X saying there he could hear the thoughts of 20 or 30 people on the Secret wars planet - hello, what about that chunk of Denver that was on the planet too? silly Bendis!!!)

There were a few other holes in that Beyonder issue... and I'm not entirely sure if they were writing Secret Wars II out of continuity or not.

The SHIELD thing seems like a good idea... have you been reading Kirkman's Antman? It's a very funny book, and SHIELD featured quite heavily in the first arc, kind of in the way you suggest.

Bendis doesn't do continuity unless it's something he wrote; it's gotten to be a pretty big problem with his stories. Like, for example, this big Skrull conspiracy we're going to get next year, except all the Skrulls died in Annihilation...

I've been thinking how great an idea an Agents of SHIELD book would have been for years. Marvel really missed a trick by not putting one out when Alias and 24 were hot. It would be a top ensemble drama, as you say, but you could also do lots of nifty non-crossovers in which mysterious events would occur in other books, and you'd see (in Agents of SHIELD) that it was due to SHIELD agents doing something sneaky.

yeah i deffo think they should do a SHIELD book - but they would have to get it totally right - it could so easily go wrong.
