Hello fellow forumers, I’m embarking on an ambitious new creation based off the Marvel Universe. I like to call it the “New Age” universe. In this new world, I’ll be writing epic adventures featuring some iconic marvel characters and some of the lesser known heroes, giving each a new creative spin while retaining what fans loved about these characters growing up. These stories will be separated by story arcs, some completely original, others adapted from other preexisting stories which will be given credit to the original source and writers. Here’s the line-up and synopsis for each of the upcoming stories I have down the pipeline. Each story is listed in chronological order. Note to anyone who posted previously on this thread when it was still the Marvel WWII thread, I will continue with the Wolverine WWII story as promised, I’m just making it part of this new marvel universe. Once that’s completed, expect these other stories down the road.

Introduction to the New Age Universe: This story is merely a prologue to the new age universe. Exploring the characters and their roles in their respective corners of this world. Some will come with updated origin stories, biographies, and their connections with other characters if there are any. The first half will focus mainly on the heroes of the New Age Universe while the other half will discuss upcoming villains. Note that if there are characters not listed, that does not mean they are not in it. It just means that they will either make very minor appearances, have no changes made to their origins, or I’m keeping their appearance in the universe a secret for now.

Wolverine/Winter Soldier: Winter’s Hunt: Shield Agent, James Howlett and Shield Commander Nick Fury go head to head with Soviet super spy, the Winter Soldier, as they clash to shift the balance of power in a new world.

Using it’s DNA, they create two brother symbiotes. One is an exact replica, retaining the memories and powers of it’s original wearers, Peter Parker and Eddie Brock, driven by the need to fulfill the “Great Responsibility” Ben Parker instilled in both. The other a mindless beast, weaker than it’s older sibling and driven by the uncontrollable need to feed on human life force. Unfortunately, both would escape confinement and infiltrate the concrete jungle of New York City. Knowing that his brother symbiote would wreak havoc on the citizens of New York, the new Venom symbiote bonds with wounded US Marine veteran and Parker’s high school rival turned friend, Sergeant Eugene “Flash” Thompson.
