Marvel wants you to replace Tony Stark as Iron Man to be more progressive. Who do you pick. It can't be Rhodey.
I would pick Pepper. Seriously, all she needs to do is wear a suit that hides her gender and use a voice changer.
Doesn't he now have a step-brother who is the true son of the Stark family who is more intelligent and creative than Tony, just previously suffered from some nonsensical debilitating disease? Just throw him in there.
Lil' Bro. The severely disabled black kid from NYX.
Exactly this... >>78807673
What's Pepper going to do when it breaks? Run to Tony for help and to fix it? Is she an engineer? Tony's a well-intellectually-groomed genius. The Iron Man is an IDEA, one that Stark knows best because he put the most work and research into it.
ant-man. might as well fold the redundant heroes together. that's why falcon as cap isnt a TERRIBLE idea. i mean it's wrong and stupid and motivated by racism, but heroically speaking it fits
Does Rumiko Fujikawa count? A daughter of hers was the protagonist in the Secret Wars Armor Wars mini
And so was her best friend, Rhodey's niece Lila
And that reminds me that another Battleworld domain had Ho Yinsen's daughter Antonia as Kid Rescue
Rumiko Fujikawa could be the new Rescue. Or the new Iron Man, for double-diversity points.
Yeah, I know she was killed, fuck that noise, a writer could easily find a way to retcon that in a story about a mysterious new Iron Man since she was killed by an Iron Man impostor.
B-ko is Tony and Rumiko's daughter, the way A-ko is Super
boyand Wonder Girl'sdaughter.
Keep Tony Stark, but bring back the aspect of the suit basically being a life support system by making him a cripple. Total body paralysis, the suit gives him mobility and acts as an iron lung. Superheroes need more handicapped representation, especially since Batgirl isn't in a wheelchair anymore.
An alternate reality genderswap Tony Stark. Another minor plot element would be that Doom finally feels secure enough to admit that he loves Tony Stark in the form of the alternate reality genderswap Tony Stark.
>bring back the aspect of the suit basically being a life support system by making him a cripple. Total body paralysis, the suit gives him mobility and acts as an iron lung. Superheroes need more handicapped representation
Lets bring back that faggot Donald Blake while we are at it. Why stop there? We can bring back that mind rapist Xavier too. Maybe even adult Jean Grey too since he is a prefect example of a named female characters and a mentally ill person.
Make Hiro from Big Hiro 6 canon on the main Marvel universe, have him wear Betamax and some times upload his mind into a bigger mech to fight bad guys.
Or have an eccentric japanese bussinessman that sells mechs and Iron-man suits (his look like Rider suits, of course). Since he is the best in the bussiness, he is capable of choosing his clients very carefully, only selling to people that deserve it, like SWAT Ironman suit for police, search and rescue suits for goverment agencies, contruction suits for big companies, and even to the odd rebel group fighting for a good cause, but he keeps all the best stuff to himself,of couse. He clashes with the Avenger since his policies about sharing tech are much more lose than Tony's and he is even making a profit out of it, but they eventually figure his is a nice guy.
>Not reading comics.
Big Hero 6 was a comic which had more ties with the X-Men (due to Sunfire being the leader) that also got made into a movie (although with obvious changes, like no mutant mentions, more backstory for Hiro Hamada, who in the comics had a weirder last name; etc).
It wouldn't be making it canon, more like reviving the series and making it more relevant to the "Main Universe".
Which wouldn't still be possible due to
>Muggas on muh MCU- I mean, muggas on anything that Marvel wants to sell.
>It wouldn't be making it canon, more like reviving the series and making it more relevant to the "Main Universe".
That's what I mean, BH6 the comic is so different ot BH6 the movie that it might as well not really be the same thing. And barely anyone remember the comic, so whole thing would probably have to be re-introduced, specially since we don't really know how the past decade of continuity has affected these characters.
Oh, good point, I got confused there for a minute.
Still, even if it would be somewhat funny, or interesting to have that, I think that Marvel wouldn't risk it due to their recent hatred of mutants due to Fox being kind of a dick to them.
