I'd ask the Flash how his powers work. And nitpick his answers. And laugh when he finally admits that he doesn't know either.

I should like to visit Astro City. Kurt Busiek has made it quite clear that it's a city of adventure and excitement that influences ALL its citizens (or at least a reasonable representation thereof) to work together and to help each other. It sounds like a great place, not BECAUSE of the super-heroes, but in ADDITION to them.

Second choice would be DC's Opal City, if for nothing else than an exploration of the architecture alone.

See, I woulda thought so about Opal as well, but according to Asmith, master of everything (according to him), Harris did a pretty piss poor job at getting the art-deco thing right.

That said, it woulda made my list cause I like the atmosphere Robinson gave the enitre place, and I'd want a photo with Bobo Benetti.

and Phantom Lady was hot.
So was the O'Dare chick.

Congratulations! You've been given a one-week stay in any comicdom city you choose!

WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!

So, where would you like to go?

Metropolis, circa 2967 or so (Shooter/Swan era Legion)

Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)

My wife of Course

What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)

Legion Headquarters. I'd also visit the Legion of Substitute Heroes who at that time would be using the old Legion Clubhouse. While I'm at it, I would go to the space age malt shop that the Legionnaires took Superboy on his first trip to the 30th Century

What would you take pictures of?

The Legion HQ, I'd like a group shot of the Legionnaires and the Legion of Substitute Heroes and the Legion of Super-Pets while I was at it.

What souvenirs would you like to bring back?

A Legion Flight Ring, or if I couldn't get that, the flight belts that they gave away to people they rejected at Legion try-outs.

Now, assuming you could....

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you?

I wouldn't take a weapon. I'm a lover, not a fighter

Whose autograph would you like to get?

Bouncing Boy's of course, and Matter-Eater Lad's and oh heck, I'd try to get the autograph's of all the Legionnaires

Which mecha/armor would you like to try out?

Hmmm, the only armor I can think of that's Legion related is the Starfinger Armor

Whose costume would you like to buy a duplicate of?

Bouncing Boy's of course. And Saturn Girl's pink bikini for my wife to wear :p

And most importantly...

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets)

Bouncing Boy. His identity wasn't a secret so he wouldn't freak out.

I would go to visit Dream, from Sandman, and crash in his realm for the week. I'd bring the love breaking girl that ripped my beating heart from my chest (KALIMA!!!). We tour around Fiddler's Green, the Library, Dream's Castle and just wander around the shifting landscape. I don't know if a camera would work there and I'm not a very photographer, so I won't take pictures. Likewise, I don't think that I could bring back any sourvenirs with me, too bad though.

Who would I like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?

I hope that Death would come and visit. I'd love to chat with her, she's so damn cute. Maybe we could have a glass of wine and some quail eggs. I'd ask her what happens when we pass on.

Hmmm, do you think something bad would happen if one were to get intimate with Death? Cause if the situation presented itself I don't think that I could turn it down.

Possibly not intrinsically, but the Endless are forbidden to love mortals, so something bad would definitely happen to you once you were done (Cf. Nada's kingdom), and Dee probably wouldn't make the move anyway.

I would probably visit Astro City as well.

So, where would you like to go?
The Blue Area of the Moon
Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)
My girlfriend
What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)
Down where the Imperial Guard fought the Xmen during the Dark Phoenix Saga
What would you take pictures of?
Oatu, the Watcher
What souvenirs would you like to bring back?
Moon rocks!
Now, assuming you could....

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you?
Some sort of Kree blaster pistol
Whose autograph would you like to get?
Black Bolt, Medusa...the rest of the Royal Family
Which mecha/armor would you like to try out?
Whatever the Kree left laying around

Black Bolt's, very swank
And most importantly...

Oatu, the Watcher... just this one time he can tell me everything he's seen, that'd be awesome!

Wow...I seem to just LOVE digging up old threads, don't I? This particular one caught my eye because I have fantasized about going into the DCU more than once.

So, where would you like to go?

Hm....Does San Fransico count? The fictional version, I mean. :tongue:

Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)

Uhh....no. They'd just get in the way!

What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)

Titans Tower, obviously. And maybe Alcatraz.

What would you take pictures of?

Titans Tower, and the Teen Titans. Oh, and this would be BEFORE Rose left the team. Otherwise, I wouldn't be going there in the first place.

What souvenirs would you like to bring back?

Uh...I...don't know.

Now, assuming you could....

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you?

Um...I'd try to steal Rose's swords, maybe. Then when I get back, I'd hang 'em above my bed. ..No, they'd probably end up falling sharp-end first in to my head. :tongue:

Whose autograph would you like to get?

Kid Devil's and Ravager's. I hate Wonder Witch*, I don't like Jaime all that much, Robin just isn't a good leader nowadays, and I don't like Miss Martian's cheery attitude. *heh, quick fact....I had actually been calling Wonder Girl "Wonder Witch" months before Sean McKeever ever had Rose call Cassie that in issue #61. I thought it was kinda funny when I read that.

Which mecha/armor would you like to try out?

...Even if I don't like him, I would somehow find a way to try out Jaime's armor/whatever you would call it.

Whose costume would you like to buy a duplicate of?

Hm...Rose's looks pretty cool.

And most importantly...

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?

I'd like to say Ravager, but I'd probably be freaking out the whole time and wouldn't be able to form coherent sentences. So...Kid Devil. (Yes, I know he's Red Devil now.)

I'd go to Scott McCloud's Zot's World. I'd talk Zach and Uncle Max into building an interdimensional device and visit lots of comic book places. The first stop would be the Baxter building, where I would introduce Uncle Max to Mr. Fantastic who would then take us on a tour of the negative zone. I'd bring back the Ultimate Nullifier but not before jumping over to DC and visiting Gotham City, Metropolis, Central City, and Olympia.

I'm really not sure. These days, the big two comics companies have been making their worlds grimmer and grittier, not getting the memo that 'grim and gritty' went out in 1997.

Of course, the worlds of DC and Marvel would be fascinating places to visit ... but I sure wouldn't want to live there!

Well, how about, Salem Center, where Professor Xavier's School is traditionally located.

The time ... well, either around the time when the original New Mutants were around, or the more recent time when the school was an actual school (and we had 'Academy X').


What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)

Well, of course there'd be Xavier's mansion, but there'd also be the Grind Stone and other hangouts.


What would you take pictures of?

Various members of the X-Men and New Mutants, pics of the Mansion, the Danger Room, the Blackbird, and so on.


What souvenirs would you like to bring back?

I don't know, really.


Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets)

Well, probably not Cyclops if this visit is after either the original formation of X-Factor (in which he leaves Maddie) or the end of 'Here Comes Tomorrow' (in which he kisses Emma while standing at Jean's grave!). I'd have nothing pleasant to say to him.

Nightcrawler, Storm, Kitty, Roberto, Dani, or someone, maybe.

Congratulations! You've been given a one-week stay in any comicdom city you choose!

So, where would you like to go? Giffen's 30th Century Metropolis


Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed) The gay version of Element Lad.


What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package) Legion HQ and the Time Institute. Both would take days to tour through.


What would you take pictures of? Schematics for really cool tech!


What souvenirs would you like to bring back? A flight ring and any other cool tech I could get my hands on!


Now, assuming you could....

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you? The Miracle Machine! Goodbye entire Dubya presidency. We'd have 8 years of Gore instead!


Whose autograph would you like to get? Mon-el


Which mecha/armor would you like to try out? Brainiac 5's force-field belt.


Whose costume would you like to buy a duplicate of? Mon-el's. It's cool, timeless, and seems the most forgiving of non-super-hero physiques.


And most importantly...

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets) RJ Brande. He's the "Warren Buffet" of his time, and he's a shape-shifter!

Ka-Zar and Shanna.

The Savage Land vibranium melts all other metal, though.

I answered this before, but it was Marvel-centric. Here's my DC version.

Congratulations! You've been given a one-week stay in any comicdom city you choose!

So, where would you like to go?

Metropolis, maybe.

Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)

I don't know.

What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)

I don't know. The Daily Planet building, I guess.

What would you take pictures of?

I'd try to see if Superman was sighted and take a picture.

What souvenirs would you like to bring back?

Editions of the Daily Planet, and related books written by its staff.

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets)

I don't know. I'd ask certain reporters what being around Superman is like. Mostly the kind of stuff they get asked by people who live in their universe.

Congratulations! You've been given a one-week stay in any comicdom city you choose!

So, where would you like to go?
Definitely going to hang with some mutants at Jean Grey's School.

Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)
No. I wouldn't want to risk it.

What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)
The Blue Area of the Moon and the Savage Land.

What would you take pictures of?
Everything.

What souvenirs would you like to bring back?
An image inducer.

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you?
Um... I don't do weapons.

Whose autograph would you like to get?
Feh. That's kind of meaningless. What possible use would the autograph of a "fictional character" have? I could make that up, myself.

Which mecha/armor would you like to try out?
None at all.

Whose costume would you like to buy a duplicate of?
Our Lord Magneto!

And most importantly...

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets)
Kitty Pryde

Mormel
01-28-2012, 11:03 AM
So, where would you like to go?
Same as Chris and Guardian, I'd visit North Salem for Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

Is anybody going with you? (Only one other person allowed)

Nope. Wanna hog the experience all for myself.

What places would you like to visit/tour while you're there? (all access passes are included in the package)
Since I haven't chosen something as big and fancy as the Savage Land or Atlantis, I'm just going to stick to MU Salem, and see what it's like. Hopefully with some of the X-Men escorting me. Have never been to the real North Salem, NY anyway.

What would you take pictures of?
The Blackbird in the hangar, the Danger Room, Cerebro. And an outside view of the Mansion, of course.

What souvenirs would you like to bring back?
One of Cyclops' spare visors.

Now, assuming you could....

Which ONE weapon would you like to bring back with you?
Weapon X! :evilsmile:

Whose autograph would you like to get?
Whose autograph WOULDN'T I like to get? I'm bringing a little notebook with me, so ALL the X-Men can write down their John Hancock in it.

Which mecha/armor would you like to try out?
Well, considering the X-Men don't have that much in the way of armours, I'd like 'em to fly me to wherever Rhodey is hanging at that point, so I can take the War Machine armour for a ride.

Whose costume would you like to buy a duplicate of?

Stingray's costume! (Again, non-X-Men. But you guys... STINGRAY'S COSTUME!)

And most importantly...

Who would you like to have a 1-hour (uninterrupted) sit-down chat with?
(They will have been previously informed of who you are so they don't freak out you know their secrets)
No one other than Rachel Summers, the time-travelling, telepathic, one-time Phoenix host, future daughter of Cyclops and Jean Grey. Of course, one hour would not be enough to cover all the many-tangled threads of her life. Could we have 24 hours instead?
