Oh how neat! Getting started like that has always seemed so cool—that must have been a real trip, discovering comics through the time of MULLETS, NEON, AND EXCLAMATION POINTS EVERYWHERE! I’m a little jealous—I spent several of 2002 plowing through the entire history of Marvel on Wikipedia; it was YEARS before I bought my first comic. My first-person familiarity is basically Runaways/Young Avengers appearances between debut and Civil War, but I have a lot of background built up from the wikibinging and scans_daily’s heyday. Miniskirt-Hawkeye was particularly popular on the latter.
Dirk as Richards would actually be a brilliant tie-in—and there is that universe where he’s married to the OTHER hot Storm sibling. (Picturing Davesprite as some kind of ultra-shrimpy Thing—same shape, but rocky—is complete nonsense… and yet not.)
Have determined Eridan is definitely Doctor Doom (MAGIC and SCIENCE and STUPIDITY), Equius and Nepeta get to be Cloak & Dagger (big floaty embodiment of negativity + the pretty bestie who feeds him her light!), it is EXTREMELY TEMPTING to make Bro the weeaboo king and have him be Iron Fist, and I am officially backing away before I go the full loser and try casting everyone.
