    The Wrecking Crew. Now that Asgard is back, why not have them come back, revamped and all!

    I say bring back the High Evolutionary. That was a great villian but just disappeared in the black galaxy for no reason. He can come back as something entirely new!

    New
    Mr.Fish
    (Luke Cage villian)

    Basic concept:

    Itchyologist Louis Fisher works for the New York Health Department, he was researching the effects of chemical waste on various fish species. Unfortunately for him he was conducting research in his lab at the same time as the World War Hulk. The melee demolished the building his lab was located in, Louis was some how magically altered by the amped up magic of Dr.Strange during his battle with the Hulk. This transformed him into a Man - Fish hybrid!

    Now angered by his deformity the new Mr. Fish is set on revenge on any and all superheroes.

    Powers:

    *Superstrength class 10 tons.
    *Amphibous breathing.
    *Poisonous spikes.

    Have gargan back as the scorpion and have him work with his private eye skills to discover teh location of parker's daughter from norman osborn so he can have a personal edge over parker instead of the empty venom one he has now.

    i'd design him similarly to the way he was when he fought ben reilly in a green and gold costume

    gargan should potentially be one of spidey's big three villains and his relationship with jjj makes him potentially a far more interesting character.

    heck, have him find out that jjj's first wife faked her death and is living off with someone else while you are there.

    The scorpion should ultimately be using his past skills and present human abilities to become a source of information to all of marvel and blackmailing his way around, infiltrating shield and all sorts.

    he should also gain a role of an individual spidey can no longer beat in battle.

    As well as this, his stinger tail should have a cocktail of different toxins used for different effects. While some are deadly, others just hurt or others have natural truth or lie serums or hallucenagenic properties.

    They should totally move him away from the comic relief area

    The Spot

    Have the current guy die. There's no way anyone will ever take the current Spot seroiusly after the whole Leigon of Losers thing, so kill him off. New guy gets the tech. The guy is a common street theif/thug to start off with, never getting the respect he feels he deserves. So he gets these powers, and at first uses them like the original Spot did, robberies. He thinks it'll earn him respect. It doesnt, and the rest of his gang simply uses him for a little while, before he just snaps, using his powers to literally rip there organs out from the inside. He's totally nuts now, he's smarter than the original guy and more ruthless with the use of his powers, and could come off as an actual threat.

    worst revamp ever. a common theif smarter then the guy who built the tech in the first place?!:whatever: the current spot is perfect the way he is, whats stopping him from being a actually worthwhile character is the lack of usage amongst the writers. he'll be a greta villains for spidey unfortunately JMS was too busy with the trash he was writing to revamp spidey's rogues gallery.

    Take every single villain that was made into an anti-hero clone of the hero, turn them back into villains, and bloody keep them that way.

    So Venom, Vengeance, and any others would all be bad guys again.

    I dont know about a revamp, but Marvel needs to bring the Kingpin back to his original status. The untouchable King of New York with his hands in everything. He was the Lex Luthor of Marvel. Although hes not superpowered, he'd still make a formidable villian bc he can manipulate almost anyone and can get to anyone anywhere. instead of this Hood nonsense, He would fully utilize a team of underused villians such as Electro, the Rhino, Jigsaw, the Chameleon, Mr. Hyde, the Tinkerer and Purple Man to their full potential. And the focus of the stories would be centered around Fisk beating the legal system becoming a threat and a problem for SHIELD, regaining his status as a businessman thus becoming a legitimate threat to Stark, meanwhile he could create his own 50 state iniative, only with villians who would return to crime knowing that they had the backing of Wilson Fisk.

    Jonathan Ohnn known as the Spot hasn't been the same since he killed and brought back by the hand. His mind is playing tricks on him he sees people fallowing him but every time he thinks that he has one they vanish. soon he starts to think that they are like him and set out to find out if he is right.
    using his powers he breaks into a government satellited tracking station and uses it to track warp hole like the one he uses and finds that there are others like him. but he is soon attacked by one of these people and finds that they live in the dimension that hes uses for his portals and that everytime he uses his powers it damages their home. the Spot soon finds that there is nowhere he can hide that they can't find him. finding no other choice he decides that he must give up his powers or they will kill him and sets out to find a way to reverse his powers as he stays one step ahead of the people that are after him.

    love that idea for the scorpion november...

    i kind of had an idea for the sinister six, not so much a revamp but a revitalization. i mean as many times as we've seen them nobody's actually taken the time to write a very deep story as to why these guys always work together and their consistency. i'd shift the lineup a little and i'd wanna look at each member of the group and see what role they play...

    The Chameleon: I'd have him emerge from the shadows recruiting everybody for his own incarnation of the six to sort of honor his fallen half-brother kraven. The guys not so much a shapeshifter but a master of disguise, but he's got an edge in that he's the ultimate actor (this guy once faked his own insanity and subsequently tried to kill himself just to fall off the grid). I'd turn him into like the ultimate stalker. He observes his target for weeks or even months before he makes a move, which would make him into sort of a master planner, carefully and methodically plotting every step, forseeing every possible contingency. I just love the idea that he could be anybody, turning parker completely paranoid.

    Dr. Octopus: The thing about Ock is that he could be the one to bring Parker down if he didn't get in his own way. I mean he's a genius, probably moreso that Parker, he can overpower him and can match his quickness on almost every level. so why hasn't he overcome him yet? because otto's got an ego that could fill the room and chameleon knows that. he'll prey on ock's slighted ego to keep him from trying to assert his leadership over the team. chameleon is counting on ock's pure hatred of spiderman to drive him.

    Electro: Electro has one motivation: $$$$. The way I see it, he's all about getting the payday and if spiderman's involved then that's a big ol bonus. Again we see a villain who could be such a bigger threat than he is. his powers are the most dangerous of the six but he's too shortsighted to figure out what to do with them and chameleon's trying to keep it that way. to chameleon electro's a grenade, just toss him in a certain direction and watch the mess that follows, which electro's fine with. i'd also possibly throw in some unhealthy tendencies leaning towards sadism, as he has very little regard for human life.

    Sandman: Only second in raw power next to Electro, as dangerous as they come and with an unhealthy penchant for heroism. this streak of decency is easily countered by chameleon by taking one of his loved ones hostage. keeping sandman in line is definitely worth the risk as he's nearly impossible to defeat in a fight. i'd love to see the conflict between him and electro as he would try to keep casualties to a minimum.

    Mysterio: The groups wildcard. Which one is it? Why is he even part of the six? What are his motivations? Not even chameleon knows. But he does know that he needs mysterio's expertise with illusions combined with his own disguises to throw parker's world into a spin. mysterio knows how to keep his opponents off balance physically and mentally. however his greatest weakness is that big sense of showmanship, he always needs the spotlight.

    Shriek: Chameleon needs someone he knows will be absolutely loyal to him. So he takes on the identity of Shriek's therapist who was slowly helping her regain her sanity. Chameleon manipulates and twists her mind until she's absolutely dependent on him giving her the sense of family she's always craved with the six. With her sonic powers and emotional manipulation abilities she's a very good asset, as long as Chameleon can keep up the illusion that she needs him.

    Not so much a tech guy but yeah...

    He shouldn't also be a flat out villain, he could easily work for both sides or potentially who ever pays him the most.

    heck he doesn't even need to always get paid in cash, information into his condition or dirt on jameson/spiderman is all that is really aquired.

    I would like to see an arc where jameson is actually held accountable for his condition and ends up going down. He could even use brock as some sort of reporter to both boost their profiles at the cost of spiderman's and jameson.

    Eventually i would like for him to break into shield and either find out 'somehow' cap's supersoldier formulae or the exact content of his shield.

    the one thing that should allude him should always be parker's identity. He is now so good at what he does that he can retrieve all information from all sources but this one thing is kinda what drives him mad and is his reasoning for wanting to take down spidey.

    I could have seen this working around the clone saga where all clues would point to pete but simply having all three of them in the same room at the same time would drive him crazy.

    so so much lost potential.

    The Answer:

    Quicknotes:
    The Answer was an old Captain America/Spider-man villain.
    Basically he could endow himself with any power to counter-act any superheroes power. Pretty much a superpowered Task Master.

    My version:
    My new take on the character, is sort of a corrupt version of DC's Mr. Terrific.

    Bio:
    Aaron Nestor was a child prodigy, he was a peer of Tony Stark and Reed Richards, but instead of science and engineering he excelled at the intellectual arts, athletics, and deduction/reasoning and logic theory.

    After a nice long run as a renowned mentalist and avantegard artist in the New York art scene, Nestor was exposed as a fraud at one of his seance demstrations by Dr.Strange who has in attendance. Nestor was conning people with recently deceased loved ones ala John Edwards (TV psychic) soon after he lost everything his status and riches.

    Down and out with little other options, Nestor decided to strike back at society for his troubles, his first attempt was to get revenge on Dr.Strange who quickly made short work of him and was sent to prison, while in jail he decided on being a costumed supervillain and that his motif would be the 'Answer' he'll use his intellect and conning to aid other criminals in their endeavors by providing intel and specific plans to take down superheroes.

    Theme & Motif:
    The Answer has no superhuman powers only his keen intellect, detective skills and meticulous planning.

    My take on the Answer is based on the whole 'PREP TIME' phenomena which is attributed to many characters like Batman, Black Panther and Dr.Doom. Answer pre-plans his schemes and heist so well that he's taken consideration for every detail.

    Also The Answer lends his talents to other villains for the right price, he'll plan out your whole bank heist and provide resources for a percentage of the take.

    Skills & Abilities:
    The Answer is has master over 20 forms of martial arts, is a expert detective and intel researcher, knowledge of various trades from safe cracking to wire tapping to concert level piano playing.

    Personality traits:
    The Answer hates to be wrong, he has a almost obsessive need to be right and plans out everything in his life from when he brushes his teeth to using the restroom. Total control freak and neat freak.

    He is a combination of DC's the Question/Mr.Terrific/Riddler with a Marvel sensibility.
