What If Marvel Really Loved Gavok?

September 17th, 2010 by | Tags: , , ,

For the past week, Marvel’s been revealing the upcoming What If stories and creative teams. We have a story about Norman Osborn winning the Siege. We have a backup where Stan Lee tells what would have happened if the Watcher killed Galactus during their original debuts. What would have happened had Spider-Man killed Kraven during the Grim Hunt? Or if Clint Barton assassinated Norman Osborn? Or if Dr. Doom and Tony Stark were roommates and… uh… they switch brains and Tony loses his memory and… oh, who knows.

One of the issues is about Wolverine raising Daken. An interesting comic on its own, but keep reading.

If there’s one person who shouldn’t raise a child, it’s a berserker killing machine. In the regular Marvel Universe, Logan wasn’t there for Daken, and his son grew up to become the murderous Dark Wolverine. But what would have happened if Logan had known of Daken’s existence as a child, and had taken him under his wing from his first moments? Can a child with Logan’s blood running through his veins ever turn his back on murder? Can Logan find redemption and be a good father? Raising Daken will be Wolverine’s greatest battle. PLUS, What If: The Venom Symbiote Possessed Deadpool – Part 2!
40 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

So let’s review for a second.





It’s official. I have a secret admirer at Marvel.

Speaking of Frank Castle, alternate realities, Deadpool and I guess Venom, I should probably get around to writing that one review…

  1. I always wanted to see Deadpool with the Carnage symbiote (it’s Carpool! nyuck nyuck nyuck) but this is close enough.

    I hope one of his symbiote powers is the physical manifestation of his yellow thought balloons.

  2. If I were a child of Wolverine, I would never turn my back on murder.

    Unless I had claws in my back.

  3. Sounds a little like What If Tony Stark was Sorceror Supreme, which is one my favorites as a kid and it looks like Gavok likes it too. They are really doubling down on Stark v. Doom but I guess in a couple weeks you’ll be able to own two feature films with each on DVD, so.

    Are we ever going to get a Dr. Strange movie? Because that seems like an obvious one, and it’s one of those situations where you ask who’s going to play this guy and like ten people come to mind. The only thing I can find is some rumor about a CGI movie which is how they should have done half of these properties to begin with.

  4. @P.B.: There was a Dr.Strange movie. Both live-action and animated. The animated one is merely bad. The older live-action one transcends mere “bad”…

  5. @P.B.: It’s worth noting that the comic is done by David Michelinie and Bob Layton. They really, really like telling Doom/Iron Man stories. They did the big Camelot time travel story years ago in Iron Man’s series and then just a couple years ago they did a miniseries follow-up involving the two.

    The concept has been done similarly before, though. There was both a story in Exiles and a story in Marvel Team-Up about a crazed Tony Stark wearing Iron Man armor with Doom’s cape over it. The former had him in modern armor and the latter had him in the original bulky style.

    Man, whatever happened to Iron Maniac?

  6. I wish they’d do an Ultimate What If?

    What if? the spider bit Mary Jane too.

  7. Hey, I got an idea: What If Spider-Man TOOK KRAVEN TO JAIL after the Grim Hunt? After all, he and his crew had killed MANY people, and it’s only a matter of time before some Johns-imitating fuckhead does a story where they rack up a body count in the triple digits.

  8. Remender is the writer of Frankencastle.
    The best Venom combination I heard is the one with the Hulk from an old CC.
    Instant event.

  9. @BoozerX: Yes, that’s what I said. Remender is writing the Venom story in question.

  10. Sorry my bad.My eyes jumped that line.
