1. That would actually be a pretty major spoiler.

2. Her original Marvel Girl costume—if we don’t count the school uniforms.

I really loved the X-men's original coloured costumes right after their school uniforms . 

 Would love to somehow see the Beast in his Red/Blue and Angel in his Yellow costume again. 

Man I wish Hidden Years was longer.

If/when I run this here as fanfic, what would be the Forum’s preference for scripting? Ballooning, as I have the sample pages, or running the script alongside the pages?

Ballooning would feel more like reading a comic book to me.

But I hope you'll also post the dialogue-free versions, as you've done so far. It has been a pleasure looking at your art in that fashion, JB!

I too vote balloons, although I'd also love to see the art without.

One thing I learned working on NEW VISIONS is that scripting is a lot easier typing right on the page. For one thing, no guessing if the copy will fit!

Knowing there are these comic books already drawn and there is this comic
book company that prints and sells comics and, yet, not knowing if these two
things will connect like it seems any sane person would want them to is kind of
odd.

I can imagine having to explain all this to a psychologist as a condition of my
release!

I am at a loss for words as to how and why this project would remain unofficial...Crazy times.

I mean Marvel desperately wants and needs to sell comics. Legendary creator JB has comic books almost ready to be finalised and it's a no ??? Did they insist on some freak disruptive and preposterous Beyonder appearances again ?

My two cents:

Balloons please.

There is no Angel costume that comes close to the Neal Adams suit. Beast was a hairy Avenger when I started reading, so that is what is stuck in my head. Which is a weird considering my Angel preference.

Back to the "current" team.  I did not get a hint there would be any costume changes, but JB is the fellow who inverted the FF suits. Nothing would surprise me. But that is the fun!

Balloons please, and, as Scott Barnett suggested above, the art without balloons as well.

I'd say it's time for a new Byrne Wolverine costume....

Let's all agree not to guess or suggest which character is getting a new costume.

Oh, and balloons, please.

No question that I vote balloons - presenting this art as pencils only will inevitably lead to people taking a stab at inking the pages.  If you offer just the script, then people will put their own balloons and captions in themselves, and then characters will be wearing dialogue for a hat and the page won’t flow as well.

Where the balloons and captions boxes are placed is critical to the aesthetic flow of the page.  I think it will be fun to see people take a stab at inking this, but it will be painful to see poorly placed balloons ruin the page

And if you don’t put in your own balloons, we run the risk of the inkers editing your text in an effort to “fix” your dialogue.  Putting in the balloons bakes it into the page!
