Start a new imprint where characters are either white males, shapely females, or token minorities. Hire competent non-meme writers and artists who can tell a story visually for the project. This new imprint only does crossover events when they make sense. Force every title to make a series bible and stick to it at all costs!
As far as ANAD Earth 616 Marvel, assign some skirt with a shitty haircut to it because it is beyond redemption.
Make sure all the changes in canon made are consistent within the continuity. Encourage out of canon comcis for people who really, really want to remodel a character entirely, encourage artists and writes to put their non superhero works on the comapny (with creator rights deals) and help advertise them. Marvel has a bigger readerbase than Image and the other company, in theory this would create interest in the medium as a whole and therefore make the industry bigger.
Ideally people would start to respect marvel for the quality of it's content and not just for the characters, and awareness / interest in the medium as a whole, and therefore readerbase, would increase.
>>78877089 >How do you save the company? Keep doing what is already being done for the most part since it is on a good place. But IF I had to do anything, I would Start mixing up some of the staff. Bendis is a money maker (no matter the damage he does) and I would slowly get him off Iron man and GoG so that he can work on books with stuff he knows while keeping the damage to a minimum. Hopeless is more or less where I would want him, books that I don't care about/want to fail. If things get REALLY nasty with Fox I'll give ALL the X books to Hopeless. However, I will have a nuclear option ready to kill off every singe X-Man in one event that I will get the best writers I have to take care of. There is no getting around that the comedy books are a little iffy right now, but they sell and from a business point of view that works for me. However, I would push for them to crossover with/promote each other instead of other books.
Minor stiff would also include: Keeping an eye on IDW Rom to see if I can sue them for anything taken from the Marvel Rom comic. Have Captain Marvel have another fall from grace and her entire image as a role model shattered, but it will be a story about how she just can't handle the pressure of being perfect anymore. Bring back Mettel as the newest Red Skull. Don't worry, he'll be back to normal, but without Hazmat as a GF there is going to be some real drama. Citizen V on going will also try to correct some of the sins of Avengers Undercover. Keep the next few events small and maybe a focus on the street level heroes with a good old gang war.
>>78877089 >minimum 5 year ban on company wide event books >focus on self contained single issue stories, keep two parters to a minimum as well. >involve the company in early education reading programs. >treat marvel as more of a publishing house. There is more to comics than capes. >find a way to reduce the price of print to 2$ or less if possible. >bring back the malibuverse as an anthology along the lines of Shonen Jump. If only as a format experiment for American audiences. >get publishing rights to foreign comics and translate.
>>78877089 Fire Bendis. One Avengers book. One X-Men book. One Spider-Man book. Ban renumberings and relaunches. Ban events. I put Yost back on Scarlet Spider and let him go as long as he wants regardless of sales. I let Tom King write Vision as long as he wants regardless of sales. I let that guy you like do that thing you like regardless of sales. I get fired for nearly pushing Marvel back to the brink of bankruptcy. DC is the #1 publisher now.
>Reboot the entire thing like New 52 but with quality control >Make it so heroes don't work for any higher power, but work alongside SHIELD out of respect for the fact SHIELD wants to protect the Earth >Make the heroes actually good people instead of absolute pieces of shit (obviously not all of them are but you know which ones I'm talking about) >Stop killing off villains and actually build up a rogues gallery for the characters >Limit Bendis to 1-2 books no one cares about, he's an awful writer and should not be writing main books
>>78883199 Yeah, I'm aware of that. Copyright renewal plays a part as well.
>>78883289 I'd ban it for that long just because they've become meaningless. it would be a chance to cleanse the mental palate. Your suggestion would be cool with me though. It wouldn't be company wide and could be self contained within those collaborating issues.
