Review of chapter "Chapter One" from lunalurker
A very fun little super origin story, with bonus points for using non-cliche characters that I hadn't seen before.
I do hope this series really does continue.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from tealruby
Just read this and the Willow/Magik story too; nice how this one was more the traditional superhero origin while Willow got the way dark supervillain origin. Love to see more in the series if possible; both seem to be crying out for more.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Very cool. It is nice to see some of our heroes receive the power they should have so they can make the difference that should be made. I'm sure Buffy and Xander will bear the responsibility well. You wrote Buffy's viewpoint well too, with her being uncomforatble with more power and angry about not having a choice but then finally accepting it and revelling in the feeling of finally having an equal to share her life with.
I don't know who the bad guy could be but I would like to see this continued. If nothing else they would have Superman's problem of not being able to be everywhere at once to save everyone even if they have the power to do so.

There wasn't much love for this or the second story in the series. I had planned on a couple more and then bringing everyone together in a big finale, but if people don't review then I tend to think they don't like it, thus it fails and drops to the back of the list of stories I work on. So, right now I can't say when it will be finished. However, thank you for your kind review.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from TwoBlackDragons
Now she's excited, I thought blandly thought to myself.

You should drop one of those thoughts.

Good story, a Buffy and Xander centered sequel would be good.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FireWolfe
This was very good I would love to see a sequel.
Comments from author:
Check the previous reviews for plans on this series. The next story will be out today, centering around a cross with Willow and Magik in Limbo.

Thanks for your comments!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Dragonelf
I hope you will get inspired to expand this story.

::Gives the plot bunny some Manchow soup::

Professor Charles Xavier: [as Wolverine brings his lit cigar into the Cerebro
chamber] Logan, my tolerance for your smoking in the mansion notwithstanding,
continue smoking that in here and you'll spend the rest of your days under
the belief that you're a six-year-old girl.
Logan/Wolverine: You'd do that?
Professor Charles Xavier: I'd have Jean braid your hair.
Logan/Wolverine: [puts out the cigar on the palm of his own hand]

16 years old would be cool, but I couldn't deal with being 6 again. (shudder)

This story is part of an ever expanding series of several origin stories that will culminate into one big knockdown drag out in the final episode. See previous reviews for the ideas that will be used. Next in line.

Willow: crossover with Magik. Willow is kidnapped into Limbo by Belasco. Stuck there, she has no choice but to return to the Blackest Magic in order to survive.

Xander and Buffy will return. Cameos in several of the stories.

Thanks for the comments!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Greywizard
I really, really, REALLY liked this story!! ;-)

Also looking forward to seeing the other comic book heroes debuts you mentioned.

And how about Dawn as a variation of the DC Comics villain, 'The Key'?
Comments from author:
Thank you very much. I know Buffy isn't received very well at TTH. I was afraid that people would pass it over because of that.

I'm thinking of swapping the Willow story around. Instead of Dr. Strange, maybe tossing her in Limbo for a Magik cross instead. Wouldn't Willow in Darkchyld guise (horns a tail and a big honking axe) be cool? Then maybe have her come back and take Doc Strange's place as the Sorceress Supreme.

I Wiki'd The Key. I would have to retcon the character, but The Key is damn creepy looking. I think I like it.
Thanks for commenting!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SFBKludge
There better be a sequel.

Wonder if the research will lead to Binary's power up? Of course the Nega Bands would probably prevent that little problem which only occured after Rouge and the Brood got involved. Wonder what the SGC (if present) will say to real life flying... SG1s reaction would be priceless.
Comments from author:
Nope, no Binary. I don't want them to be too powerful. I'm having a hard enough time trying to find a decent villain that isn't a god for future stories.

I played with the idea of doing a SG-1 cross, but I couldn't do the series justice.

Thanks for the comment!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Dusel
That's it...a one-shot?!

C'mon man, I know that since you lack a big bad you can't really continue the story could do it MARVEL style, you know how Marvel comics just loop on one another? How ten issues or in the case of the X-men it started with the introduction of the Scarlet Witch which lead to House of M which will now lead to another chapter of X-men history, or the upcoming Fall of the Hulks? Who knew Leonard Samson was working for A.I.M. from the very beginning...

What I'm saying is that...I hope that you can...start your own continuity! I have seen authors do it before, Agent-G and AlbertG on fanfiction(dot).net are perfect examples.

I know you have your other story - By Fire and S.W.O.R.D. which although is a bit screwy in the timeliness and mixing is still a wonderful fic and it may stop you from doing it, but please consider(if you haven't already) to continue this most Mar-Vellous story and universe you have created!

p.s. 10 out of 10, but that was a given wasn't it?
Comments from author:
Funny that you should mention that...

Future Characters I'm considering in this "universe"

Chase (DC) (Cordelia, back from the dead)

Dr. Strange(ess) (Marvel) (Willow)

Dead Girl (Marvel) (Tara)

Punisher (Marvel) Riley

Moon Knight (Marvel) (Oz)

Bad guy could be Giles as a M.O.D.O.K. (okay that was a joke. "Somebody polish my glasses for me dammit!" Big head, little tiny hands. )

Any favorites out of these?
