no, use my SPACE name!
There must be other people out there excited for Infamous Iron Man, right? Right?? There is so much potential for hilarity there. Like, what if in every issue, Doom alters one more piece of his flashy new armor to look like like traditional Doom attire until by issue #15 he’s literally just this:

Six more books I would make happen as Marvel Editor-in-Chief:

Force Works
Jeremy Whitley & Ming Doyle

The next generation of Iron Men is here… or make that… Iron Women!? Join Riri Williams (a.k.a. IRON MAN), Toni Ho (a.k.a. IRON PATRIOT), and Lila Rhodes (a.k.a. WAR MACHINE) as they argue about the best distribution of Linux, ignore the advice of mentor Suzi Endo, and gear up to take on the world’s most wanted. And when Tony Stark returns from his relaxing vacation on Consistent Characterization Island, he has a problem only the newest incarnation of the Illuminati can solve… Guest starring Valeria Richards!

Girlfriend!
Kathryn Immonen & Aaron Lopresti

Quaint term your mom uses for her college buddies or indicator of two women in a romantic relationship? It’s up to you to decide as life partners Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew take on the world hand-in-hand. Join Captain Marvel and Spider-Woman as they (platonically?) plan a life, raise a kid, and assemble Ikea furniture together – and somehow find time for coffee dates in between thwarting Earth’s biggest threats!

Galactus, Herald of Franklin
Matt Fraction & Kenneth Rocafort

Universal scourge Galactus is getting by with a little help from his friends – Franklin Richards and Franklin Richards! When Franklin Richards travels back to the past to spend time with his younger self, he doesn’t expect his future partner-in-crime to follow him, but Galactus isn’t about to let Franklin and Franklin have all the fun! And when Franklin and Franklin accidentally create a pocket universe populated entirely by shrimp, Galactus’s hunger might be the only solution…

Val ‘n’ Victor
Jonathan Hickman & Stephanie Hans

Valeria Richards and Uncle Doom are up to no good… or are they? Even supergeniuses need time to relax, and that’s why Val ‘n’ Victor start their quest to sample ice cream from all fifty of NOW Magazine’s top ice creameries. Follow Marvel’s most strangely charming avuncular duo as they ponder the mysteries of life, the universe, and everything over two scoops of their favorite flavor in this comic guaranteed to be short on action and long on dialogue!

Honey, I Corrupted the Kids
Marguerite Bennett & David Lopez

Why do the Richards children keep adopting supervillains? Marvel powerhouse Sue Storm and her husband Noodle Husband are on the case! Plus, join Sue as she investigates why Noodle Husband’s hugs are the best and also the creepiest. You won’t want to miss the book called “face-slappingly satisfying” by Readers Against Namor and “kind of okay” by critics everywhere!

Luke Cage: Baby Holder
Al Ewing & Brittney Williams

It’s tough work, but someone has to appear in the background panels of Jessica Jones’s comic to hold the baby, and Power Man is the man for the job! When he isn’t fighting crime with his BFF, Luke Cage is looking to be the best dad out there – and he knows that means keeping Danielle out-of-the-way but still visible lest readers forget case-crackin’ P.I. Jessica Jones also has a husband and kid. Hailed as “Marvel’s most sedentary series”, this is the ground-breaking run that dares to revolve around handsome men cuddling cute babies!

Here are six books I would make happen if I supplanted Axel Alonso at Marvel.

Tony Stark: Iron Man
Kelly Sue DeConnick & David Marquez

You asked for it and we answered – here’s an intense study of Tony Stark as he tinkers with his armor, banters with his A.I., and engineers a better filing system! Noted for its close attention to character continuity, this is the book that dares to put Tony’s demons to rest so he can finally get a good night’s sleep and I can stop worrying about him. Features a mysterious girlfriend who may or may not be a resurrected Rumiko Fujikawa and introduces Lila Rhodes as Tony’s protégé. James Rhodes appears in alternating issues!

Gambit and Storm vs. the World
Marjorie Liu & Kris Anka

In an effort to reconnect with an old friend, Ororo Munroe takes some time off from the X-Men to help Remy Lebeau with the start-up cat shelter he runs out of an abandoned Catholic church. When one of the cats goes missing, it’s up to Ororo, Remy, and guest-star Laura Kinney to track the feline to a sinister location… (Spoiler alert: the cat is unharmed!)

Captain Marvel Team-Up
Greg Rucka & Valerio Schiti

Carol Danvers is traveling the country to revisit her past and reclaim her lost memories – and it looks like she’s going to need some help! Watch as she works with Ms. Marvel, Wolverine, War Machine, Hulkling, and more to stop evil, do good, and break every speed record on the books. Did we mention that each issue ends with Carol splitting a tub of ice cream with her guest-star as they celebrate how great it feels to heal from emotional trauma? You better believe it!

Foggy Nelson, Avocado at Law
Mark Waid & Fiona Staples

Join Foggy Nelson, Marvel’s most decent attorney, as he takes on the biggest case of his life: convincing his best friend to listen to him! It’s an uphill battle, but someone’s gotta persuade Matt Murdock that his office doesn’t have to be at the bottom of an abandoned elevator shaft – and Foggy, armed with forgiveness, self-care packages, and the number of a good therapist, is just the guy to do it!

War Machine Rox
Ales Kot & Marcio Takara

Jim Rhodes, a.k.a. WAR MACHINE, is finally taking back the respect he deserves! This ground-breaking series challenges Rhodey to outfly and outgun Earth’s biggest threats while still making enough time to give the Young Avengers flight lessons and bake his niece a birthday cake. And is that the president asking Rhodey to put together his own hand-picked task force? You’ll find out in one of the next eighty issues!

Hawkeye Does America
Chelsea Cain & Annie Wu

Kate Bishop (Hawkeye, not Hawkguy) roams the country in her convertible while righting wrongs, sampling regional cocktails, and flirting aggressively with Miss America (Chavez, that is). Guest-stars Clint Barton (Hawkguy, not Hawkeye) and Pizza Dog in a sporadic backup feature where they call Kate for advice on how to complete basic household tasks!
