I was skimming through a review of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie (which got 5 stars by the way) in the papers yesterday when a thought occurred to me...

i    Current coverage on the various marvel cartoons aside, the Guardians of the Galaxy are a fairly obscure marvel title.  I mean, I could be wrong, but I grew up reading X-related titles and collected most of the Marvel Files A-Z and the Marvel Superheroes RPG and I'd barely heard of them.

ii    There is another group of intergalactic rebels/pirates that are arguably better known and have strong ties to the X-Men

(SPOILER ALERT)
iii    At the end of the X-Men; Days of Future Past movie, the time-line was reset and Cyclops and Jean Grey were brought back to life.

MY CONCLUSION:
Guardians of the Galaxy is possibly a test piece to see how well audiences react to an utterly fantastical space-opera type marvel film.  We've already seen subtle hints and unusual villains in the teasers at the end of each movie which show future planning.  Why wouldn't they test the waters before (re)making one of the biggest X-Men stories ever.

If Guardians is a big hit, will we see a StarJammers Movie? or will they jump straight to an X-Men/StarJammers crossover; The Pheonix Saga.  I know X-Men 3 was supposed to cover that material but lets be honest; it was a huge disappointment given the wealth of material.  But maybe the mainstream audience wasn't ready for the StarJammers, the Shi'ar and the M'kraan crystal back then.

But now... the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.  Replace the M'kraan Crystal with the Tesserat, add in alien invasions in the Avengers, an entire Alien Cosmology in Guardians, shake well and add a dash of Jean Grey and Cyclops are alive and maybe events in X-Men 3 didn't happen anymore and I think the stage is well and truly set...

X-MEN: The Pheonix Saga & X-Men: Dark Pheonix a double movie bill.
Coming to a movie theater near you?



If it isn't, then it d*mn well should be!

This is a story featuring either your original character or a brand new character.  The more details you provide of what you want, the closer it will be to your vision.  You can provide me with a complete plot or just a title or theme, or anything in between.
This type of work involves a lot of feedback and communication (questions :P) to keep the details right (I can't just guess the name of your first love for example :P)

I haven't done any role-play on DA but I grew up playing paper & dice RPGs like AD&D and graduated to MMO's later in life. 

what did you have in mind?
