Super Highschool

edited May 2007 in Graphic Violence
While I was at work today I was thinking about the marvel universe and all the cool things they have done with it like marvel zombies; and I got to thinking of cool parralles. The one i came up with is at every major marvel super attends the same highschool.

Some of the heroes and villians would be teachers but most would be students. Like Captain America Professor X and Magneto could be teachers. All the heroes would be in different grades. The idea I had for the fantasic four was Sue dated Doom and Reed has a crush on her and they fight over her and Ben always sticks up for Reed, while Johnny just doesnt like Doom and kinda looks up to Ben. Spiderman is well just spiderman who has a beef with his science teacher Mr.Osbourn. For the Xmen I had the love triangle of Scott Jean and Logan, Logan is a senior and like Jean who is a Sophmore while Scoot likes her to and hes a junior.

And the list and go on and on from their. Anyone else have any cool ideas about the Marvel or Dc.

Also I would just like to say that this is my first post here in Graphic.

    Er.....No thank you.

    I mean, as like a webcomic or something...maybe.


    But as an actual published comic that you buy with actual money? No.

    I was thinking of something like a one or two shot novel. It would just be like them in highschool with their superpowers and what that would be like at a highschool. All so just came up with Dr. Strange would be princple.

    Ugh...this may well be the worst notion ever. Highschool angst and drama with super powers. Am I supposed to be going yay? D:

    There are good ways to tell these kinds of stories, there's a reason series like Teen Titans, Runaways, Young Avengers etc are popular.

    This is not a good way though.

    Yeah, the closest thing that comes to mind is Ultimate Spider-Man. Or perhaps various X-men titles dealing with the students.

    Idea sounds pretty bad. If you want to read superheroes and high school done right, just pick up Spider-man Loves Mary Jane. Surprisingly good fun book.

    Anyone ever read Sidekicks? One of my favorite comics. Too bad only three isues and a special ever made it out. The artist for that did the Mary Jane comic too, and some other X-Men work.

    Sounds like the movie Sky High, except with Marvel characters.

    The movie as a whole wasn't that great, but it had a lot of little touches that I liked.

    Plus it had Bruce Campbell, so... that's nice.

    Yeah I dont know why I didnt mention USM... that series is at its essence high schol angst/drama with super powers. And it's one of the best books every month. That's how you do it right.

    My first reaction is never positive to teen drama.


    BUT

    if this idea was played for laughs and lacked any serious angst- say written by Dan Slott, I'd buy the shit outta this here.

    Imagine Spider-man literally crying in the corner because the other kids make fun of him, or Osborn thrown in jail for giving a "private study session" to Gwen Stacy.

    I wouldn't feel too bad. I think it's a decent idea. It could just be a little cute series. I don't see anything wrong with it.

    I clicked on this link hoping this was already a real publication. I think it's a great idea and would be even better if done in the theme of this short film, Fast Times at Superhero High. Check it out.

    And two of the five Kids in The Hall...

    As for the idea, it's not exactly what I would call... good. Sorry but even as a comedy it seems like it could just be overly cheesy.

    Sky High was fun, I enjoy that movie. That is how an idea like this would have to work, new universe with new heroes, using existing stuff would just make it cheesy like someone said.

    I appreciate that comics should target their demographic... and maybe I'm outside it these days. But I hate stories set in schools, or all teen angsty. I cant watch smallville - and took quite a while to watch Heroes, because of the "save the cheerleader, save the world" slogan. I assumed it was a teen story.

    But thats purely a personal thing.

    Would this series have a very special issue where Franklin Castle brings a gun to school and shoots Willy Fisk, the kid that sells candy bars at a 100% mark-up to pay for the jazz band's trip to Ohio?

    Because I'd so buy that.
