Good Luck!

I've reached in darkness and come out with treasure
I layed down with love and I woke up with lies
Whats it all worth only the heart can measure
It's not whats in the mirror but what's left inside

Thanos of Titan.

The Infinity Gauntlet series had him fighting the Avengers, X-Men, Silver Surfer, and even the abstract concepts of the Marvel Universe. He starts out by killing half of the sentient life of the universe with a snap of his fingers in order to seduce Death herself. The remaining heroes assemble an assault group with nothing left to lose and everything on the line. Hard to get more epic than that!

wonder woman

wonder woman is arguably the strongest image of female empowerment in modern mainstream comics, and deserves a great movie that passes that sense of empowerment onto young girls.

a real Silver Surfer movie would kick much ass. none of that Fantastic Four garbage that they tried a couple years ago. disbelief

Norrin Radd pledged to serve Galactus in order to save his planet and his love. The deal is that he can never return to his planet. However, he is given god like power and the ability to travel the entire universe. Eventually he is exiled to earth, unable to leave. God like power, but an entire planet that doesn't accept him.

I've always thought "Silver Surfer: Parable" was one of the best mini-series (only two issues). Written by the great Stan Lee, it's one of his finest stories ever. It even won an Eisner award. It would lend itself to the constraints of a Hollywood movie really well. Instead of trying to fit in decades of storylines from the comics (like most comic movies do these days), this is a contained story about morals and religion.

Copy and pasted because I'm too lazy to give the story myself. giggle

Astronomers discover that a giant spaceship is approaching Earth. Panic spreads, especially in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Surfer leads a lonely life, passing himself off as a homeless man, in the ghettos of Los Angeles. He is being harassed by three LAPD officers when the ship lands and Galactus reveals himself. He claims he has come to offer mankind a better world if they agree to worship him.

Charismatic religious televangelist
Colton Candell and his sister Elyna watch as Galactus reveals himself. Colton sees an opportunity and declares himself the apostle of Galactus-the-God, claiming to have summoned him to Earth by his prayers. But the religion of Galactus is one of chaos and society begins to crumble. Anarchy reigns.

The Surfer chooses to reveal himself to expose Galactus as a false god. Colton rejects him, but Elyna embraces his vision. The Surfer challenges Galactus, asking him why he broke his pledge not to attack Earth, to which Galactus replies that he has not, the Earthmen are destroying themselves.

While the world media watch, the Surfer and Galactus engage in battle, causing much devastation to Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, despite Elyna's words of reasons, Colton has become intoxicated with power and tries, in vain, to communicate telepathically with Galactus. The
mayor of LA comes to visit in an attempt to protect the city but is rebuffed by Colton's fanatic Chief Disciple. Elyna steals the Mayor's helicopter in an attempt to reach the Surfer but is shot by one of the Disciple's guards.

Elyna, wounded, loses consciousness and dies when her helicopter crashes; the Surfer might have rescued her if he had not been struck by Galactus, who thus displayed his total lack of compassion before the world media.

While the Surfer mourns Elyna, the world now rejects and turns against Galactus. The U.S. president orders his airforce to attack him, which they do just as Galactus was about to crush the Surfer. Realizing he has now lost his battle for the hearts and minds of Mankind, Galactus releases the Surfer and goes.

The U.N. would enshrine the Surfer instead, but realizing the danger for Mankind to rely on anyone else but itself, the Surfer instead proffers words of contempt who turn the crowd against him; only Colton understands he has done so on purpose, and begs him to come back, but the Surfer leaves to return to his loneliness.

Parable was awesome. As was the not so long ago "Requiem." I'm a Surfer fan too, and it was hard to swallow FF#2, knowing there was much more to the character.

Requiem was TOP NOTCH. nod

God, that FF2 was tough to stomach as a Surfer fan.

Word is that Stan Lee actually had Hollywood in mind when he wrote Parable.

I would love a movie about Luke Cage, filmed in Harlem, and have it take place during the 70s.

Luke Cage: Whatcha think?

You can go younger, but he has good timing. I don't know a lot of people who can pull off "Sweet Christmas!" or telling Doom to "Gimme my money, honey!" like Crews could.

Why does there have to be a soundcheck? I don't have a songcheck. You don't have a clothescheck.

Damn, you're taking it way back, son! Some of the dialogue was kind of silly, but you have to applaud Marvel. They were always progressive.

well, if we're going to go 70's Harlem (80's Flint or Detroit, MI would work too), I'm going there! lol

I actually liked and have (somewhere) Power Man and Heroes for Hire comics. It was PURE Marvel where they addressed the reality of a Metahuman trying to make a living. Even with a "plus" like superstrength and durabillity, he had to deal with a) a criminal record, b) racial oppression, c) an Alpha Male attitude in a world where men were beginning to be feminized. Money was money to him, and he would take a job for Dr. Doom, but still be bad assed enough to look Doom in the eye and call him out!

I think his recent role in Civil War/New Avengers/Secret Invasion was pretty good, but I do think he's not getting enough real charactarization in Thunderbolts. His relationship with Jessica Jones has been interesting, but I would focus less on the interracial aspect of that in a movie. In fact, if they want to touch on an issue of mixed dating, make Jessica Jones mulatto.

I also loved this recent comic of Heroes for Hire, and would welcome the idea of Misty Knight (Jada Pinkett!) playing "Charlie" for the H4H "Angels" Luke Cage and Danny Rand (Christopher Pine!).
