18. The Wastelands
Marvel Comics story: Old Man Logan, Old Man Hawkeye, Old Man Quill
The Wastelands is an interesting concept created by Mark Millar. In Wolverine 66 (Old Man Logan), we saw what the world would look like if the villains came together to defeat the heroes. The villains would win and kill almost all the heroes of the world. The X-Men, Avengers, and most of the street heroes would be killed. Some of the heroes left alive would hide. They became too scared or emotionally scarred to rise up. Others would take what they had left and try to live a normal life.
An animated version of this series would be great. The Wastelands could start with the actual battle. We’ve only seen bits and pieces of it in the comics. It would be nice to see what actually happened during the battle. Some of the fights must have been incredible. Also, there’s so much to know after the fight. How did they divide the territories? If the Hulk is a hero, how did he become the owner of most of the west coast? Other than no one being crazy enough to tell him no. After we’ve seen that, they could tell the stories of Old Man Logan, Clint Barton, and the current comic book run with Daniel Cage being the new Thor.
