    Default Captain Marvel: dream creative team

    I've always thought that a creative team of Grant Morrison and
    Ed Mcguinness would be the ideal creative team for series staring this character. Mcguinness's would capture the larger then life aspect of the character and Morrison's tendancy towards big crazy ideas would work quite well with the Marvel family.

    what do you guess think?

    Is Cameron Stewart a reasonable subsitute for you?

    I'm mixed on Ed McGuinness's art. Don't dislike him though.

    Morrison is my pick for this as well. While not my favorite writer, I can't help but think he'd be perfect on the title.

    As for the artist, I definitely don't want McGuinness on it - just can't stand the man's art. But it's got to be someone who can bring the whimsy. I say Frank Quitely, Pete Poplaski, or hell, just keep Mike Norton on it.

    Cameron Stewart is doing the art for the Captain Marvel issue of Multiversity.

    Have there been previews? I like Stewart fine, but not everyone "gets" Cap.

    Either that, or I just really love C.C. Beck.

    My ideal Captain Marvel project would use an array of creative teams. You want the clean-lined bombast of Cap himself, a more smooth, illustrative style for Mary's adventures, and a detailed, dynamic style for Junior's stories.

    Personally, I think Mike Norton did a great job , but the strength of a rotating creative team is that it allows creators who wouldn't work on an ongoing monthly series to create 'dream projects'.
    I mean, there's no way Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez are ever going to do a monthly ongoing series for DC, but wouldn't it be nice to see them do a Mary Marvel story?
    Similarly, you could get Darwyn Cooke, Cliff Chiang, or Bruce Timm doing a Captain Marvel story... hell, why have ONE Dream Team, when you can have all of them?

    No previews yet, that I've seen at least. This won't even be out until summer. I think Stewart is a good choice though. His art is close to Quitely's, and if anything it's less bulgy, which is a good fit for Cap.

    How about using different artists for ONE story, like they did back then? (Or one artist with multiple styles)

    I've mentioned this here, but the original Mary Marvel story definitely had a mixture of styles, either with Swayze on Mary, Raboy on Junior, and Beck on Cap; or Swayze just copying their styles for their respective characters. Actually, I'd love to see that today!

    And I want to say: Ty Templeton. That is all.

    My old dream team would have been Mark Waid and the late Mike Wieringo (in fact I think Grant Morrison has said that Waid was scheduled to do a post Infinite Crisis Marvel Family book but they went in another direction).

    Right now I think it would be Gail Simone (I don't think there's another DC writer right now who has proclaimed her love of the Marvels or desire to write them so much) and Jesus Saiz (love the work he's done on Brave and the Bold).

    If not them I think Paul Cornell (who has a flair for the dramatic and the ridiculous, both of which I think a proper Shazam title needs) and Shane Davis (who said he'd love to do the Marvel Family at SDCC). Too bad the only real Shazam work I can find from Davis alone is this "Black Mary" cover from the Countdown http://www.comiconart.com/images/Sha...ountdown36.jpg although even there Mary looks better than how anyone drew her within the title itself (where the art was usually dreadful).

    Gail Simone.

    I don't know why, but I can imagine Nicola doing good with it.

    Or Cameron Stewart lol.

    The last time I thought about this I came up with something similar to Pol.

    For Cap, let's have Morrison and Quitely. Stewart could be nice, too. For Junior, let's just hand it over to Paul Pope. And for Mary? The Immonens seem perfect to me.
