For the record, I NEVER need to see a world where Disney also owns DC Comics. This is due to a litany of reasons I won't go into, I grind my teeth enough as is.

This post is me simply hypothesizing what would happen if the two universes merged. How would the mythologies gel? Are there possible scenarios where they could complement each other?

In NO particular order, here's my top 10 ways of making the pieces fit into a cohesive picture. 

1.   Reed Richards was a teenage sidekick/intern to the Challengers of the Unknown.
2.   Wildcat is the father (or adopted father) of Matt Murdock.
3.   Galactus consumed Krypton. (A sentient computer called Brainiac becomes a herald?)
4.   Richard Dragon and/or Bronze Tiger were trained in K'un L'un.
5.   Those born with the metagene in the DCU are strait-up mutants. Characters like Black Canary are in the original X-Men.
6.   Ghost Rider(s) work for The Spectre.
7.   Namor goes too extreme so Aquaman dethrones and banishes him.
8.   The Green Lantern Corps. work one side of the universe. The Nova Corps work the other half. Our solar system is right on the borderline of jurisdiction, causing many intergalactic conflicts.
9.    The Blue Beetle armor is based on Phalanx tech.
10.   Members of the JSA started as members of the Invaders.

I had some others like "Quicksilver can tap into the Speed Force," but I'll leave it there for now.

What possible new histories do you see?

Okay, sure, I've been enjoying the heck out of Rai so far, and Bloodshot, even with Booth's art is pretty darn good, but after seeing this ... yeah ... Valiant is pumping me up again!

I may even try ShadowMan again. That looks cool!!!

I finished it last night and loved it!

Yeah, they did a pretty damn good job of it didn't they? The ending, which was pretty well done other than the two things I had issues with, was different than the book but left a great opening for season two.

I will say, now that you have finished, that the two things that kinda made me mad as a viewer (and they are related to the same thing) are:
1- The amount of time that Dodge (Ellie in reality) was "out" due to that punch from Lucas/Dodge/Gabe. They really needed to show Lucas/Dodge/Gabe drugging her,  using a spell or hell, even using a "key" to make her be asleep that long. I hate when shows stretch that punch shit out like that. I've seen people knocked out cold, I've knocked out someone and have been knocked out a couple times myself and I have never seen someone be "KOed" for anywhere close to that amount of time.

Yes, I have never seen one person be three different people either and this is a fictional piece but come on...  Cheesy Is it really that hard to do things like that the way they would be in reality? No
 Angry

2- Where the kids placed the knocked out Ellie. "Hey, we are in a time crunch here from the possibility of being drowned and this evil gal (or so they believe) could awaken at anytime, lets put the body a good ten yards away from the door we are trying to throw her in"
 Angry Angry Angry Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Also, while I am still mad that FOX killed the shows after the pilot as I liked that cast better (although I get to see the woman that was suppose to be Nina Locke in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina now), I am glad it wasn't on network. And while I am really, really saddened by the fact that Hulu also passed on the pilot as they were going to make it more of a horror based show and they had the director of the IT movies as show runner ... or director (or something), Netflix did make a pretty darn good showing of it!!!

Looking forward to season 2

I wanted to pre-screen this before letting her watch it.  I do that quite a bit just to make sure.  

Absolutely smart my man!!

The episode towards the end where the shadows attack the house might be too scary for her (shes prone to nightmares) but the rest of the shows are right up her alley.

I know how that can be. My brother had issues with nightmares a lot also. Well into his teens. I am glad you guys are going to get a chance to see it together !!

 
Im planning on rewatching this with her and will just make sure its daylight at that episode or just fast forward through the scary part.

And also a very smart idea! Yep, yep!! Let the daylight and time ease the chances of nightmares away!!!
 Cool
You might be pretty good at this parenting stuff, buddy

So you had mentioned that you and Hannah are watching Lost in Space, are you both not watching this? I know it is "TV14" so not sure if that is the reason or if she had no desire to see this. Just curious if it was her saying no or you.

But it is a great show!  And just the kind of thing she will love.

X-Force #7 - Domino IS X-Force!   Grin  Interesting Domino solo story.  Definitely drew me in with the cliffhanger page.

X-Men #6 - Still the best "X" title.  Each issue is like a little window into different parts of the new world.  This month's focus on Mystique was really good.  How long can this paradise last?  The cracks are already starting.

Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1 - Good tribute to Alfred.  Will be interesting to see how this continues to impact the dynamic of the Bat Family.  And thank goodness I'm not reading Nightwing right now.  "Ric" Grayson?  Really?

20XX #2 - Good issue.  The tension builds as Meria learns more about her new "normal" and she's in for a world of hurt.

Finished episodes 5, 6, & 7.  Man this is moving fast!  Are they pulling things from future arcs?  I can't remember if all of this happened in the first Locke & Key arc.  Just hoping they don't run out of source material if this gets a lot more seasons.  In any case - LOVE this show!

The return of Sam was done well.  Definitely pulled me in and just like the comic, the back story made me feel for him while hating him at the same time.

I'll probably be watching the rest of this when I get home tonight.  Fortunately, I took tomorrow off of work so staying up late tonight won't hurt!

From last night and last week -

Conan the Barbarian #12 - Final Arron issue. Great run is what that was
Doctor Strange #20 - last issue. Now for the relaunched "Surgeon Supreme" (And soon, Academy Cool)
Doctor Strange Annual #1 - If you're gonna relaunch, put the year back in as the number!!!  Angry
Fantastic Four #18 - Yeah, yeah, one more issue of this story to go. Then I can complain about the next
Ghost Rider #4 - I really like this series.

Lois Lane #8 - I forgot I wasn't gonna get this anymore. Ooops. It was a'ight. Not enough to pull me back

Captain Ginger v2 #1 - Man I enjoyed the first volume of this, but now the art is ... not the same. NO!!
Isola #10 - Had to come back for this. But now I really do need to stay away until it is finished.
Red Mother #2 - Another pretty decent scare title
Redneck #23
Redneck #24
Redneck #25
- About four sentences in this latest issue (other than Bible verses I mean) and I am fine with that. This was a good one. It took me the first two issue to remember what was going on  Cheesy  Undecided, but once I got there, I was ready. Nice!
