 So it maybe kind of got thrown around in the back room - the idea of AMALGAM AUs for pups.

Amalgam was a DC/Marvel Crossover event in the 1990s that created stories and characters set in one universe that was a bit like both universes. It featured such groups as:

JLX (Justice League X - made up of mutants)

And had such characters as Super-Soldier; (Cap x Superman); Dark Claw(Wolvie x Batman); Bruce Wayne: Agent of SHIELD; and Wonder Woman (Princess Ororo of Themiscyra)

Anyway, I don't want top suggest everyone read all the comics and play by canon (where's the fun in that) but would anyone be interested in running with these ideas? Say, taking a character that isn't currently in bar and melding it with yours, or finding a place for your pup in the amalgamated universe?

Want to play your Avenger character in the Justice League? Think your Justice character would make an awesome mutant?

Dinah Morse? Oliver Barton? Bart Maximoff?

(I might be super excited about Dick Grayson, Agent of SHIELD, ngl.)

Why does the idea of a Sam Wilson/Hawkman fusion make me cackle?

Course, I'll have to decide between that and the Avengers Noir AU I proposed to the MCU muns.

Unholy hybrid of X and Diana?

I can't even fathom how that would work, but I kind of want to try.

A clone of the Princess of Themyscira?

A clone of the Princess raised by Ares and his minions, yeah.

Would that make her more of a Donna mashup?

Maybe? That's why it's tough. I want to find a different and interesting spin. Hmm.

Following the Amalgam pattern, since they combined Logan and Bruce Wayne, X could be paired with Batgirl. Or Damien (A female clone of Dark-Claw taken by Ra's A-Pocalypse?).

The only thing there is that they are . . . kind of already variations on a theme of each other. So. Hmm.

I'm not sure how Invincible would fit into it. The Amalgam Universe worked because of the long-standing dichotomy between Marvel and DC allowed sort of a crossover. Image doesn't really have a opposite, and it's scattered all over the place when it comes to continuity (trying to tie "Invincible," "The Walking Dead," "RunLoveKill," "Tooth & Claw," and "Atomic Robo" all into the same continuity would make my head explode). There's not really another superhero 'verse out there that he could pair off with.

Invincible Noir, on the other hand, would be work well. Son of a well-respected public figure who turns out to be a criminal, villain, and/or monster? Sounds pretty film noir to me.

I third the idea of Sam Hall (or Carter Wilson), the Falconhawk (Falconman?).

Rikki would totally be mashed up with Charlie Gage-Radcliffe (Rikki Barnes-Radcliffe?), because the law of conservation of redheaded homeless teenage girl superheroes! IT IS IMPORTANT.

OH ALSO. I think if I amalgamated Bart, he'd probably be smooshed together with Tommy Shepherd. Aaaaaand assuming I have Tim Drake by them, I have... no idea, actually. HMMM.

I'm pretty sure she was a Carrie Kelley mash-up, actually! She was wearing Carrie's version of the Robin suit.

(Ooh, I might roll with that name, though. But yeah, I think Tommy and Bart would fit together more smoothly.)

Ooh, I love this idea and it could be fascinating for Charles, mainly because of all the stuff I've done in PFSB. Also I once had him visit the Joker in Arkham so yes.

The AU thing isn't really grabbing me, so even though I control four DC-related characters, I will have to pass.

Could be fun but I'm a bit flaky as to my tagging times at the moment.

I don't know the expanded Marvel universe well enough to say how you'd cross Jason Todd over. Except for him as another Winter Soldier.

Any suggestions?

Jason Castle, the Red Skull? (Or, going with the hood motif, the Executioner.)

In the 'canon' - which was published long before Jason actually returned and therefore foreshadowed it - he was crossed with Deathlok.

Ah, interesting. I'll have to track it down and check it out.

[personal profile] genarti 2015-05-27 02:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Ahahahhaha. I am totally intrigued by this idea!

Who would Thor cross over with, do you think? (And/or who was he crossed over with in the actual Amalgam?)

[personal profile] genarti 2015-05-27 02:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Man, I don't even know Orion. Fair enough, but I'll probably go a different route, then.

And ahahaha, thank you for the clarification -- Billy Batson was not my first thought. (But omg, a Carol-Thor amalgam would also be A THING. So blond, so much punching! Alas that they are, in fact, both Marvel, and also we have a great Carol in-bar.) Hmmm! As far as Billy Baston Captain Marvel goes, I basically just know the premise, without a really solid sense of his personality. I'm willing to look into it, though.

Hmmm. Not sure who I'd want to cross over with, since my DC knowledge is currently not so awesome, but I'd be down for this.

Well, at the time, I think Carol was sans superpowers, so the Huntress works. But I agree with the Power Girl crossover.

I could totally see Bucky and Superboy.

Or Bucky and Arsenal! (Especially with a Young Justice twist.)
