Review of chapter "chapter seven" from DragonBard
Re: The What If? issue with Iron Man as Sorcerer Supreme.

Basically, Tony Stark drove Dr Strange (while he was still a practicing surgeon) home, and had a car wreck, which caused Strange to loose his ability to perform surgery.

Appalled by what he'd done, Tony Stark went to try and find a method to fix it, and eventually tracked down the Ancient One, and became his apprentice, like Strange did in canon.

Eventually, he built an armor for himself, though it was different from the canon armor, and combined it with magic I believe (most of my info is second hand. I think there is a wikipedia page about it.)

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from RogueAngel
Hey, thanks for the update. Nice to see the start of the hero meetings. Buffy would be a hard one to convince, with her I just wanna be a normal girl thing. Maybe she came be told its not her destiny to fight the forces of darkness alone and die young anymore (that point only would have her happy), but that she could choice to help those she loves protect the innocent. Which in the end she might go for, Buffy is nothing if not a hero. Adding protecting her loved ones to helping those in trouble. Because truthfully is Buffy really did wanted to stop being the slayer, she would have. But her guilt about not helping when she could and her desire to protect keep pulling her back. Maybe work with that?
Looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from Redsfan
Cordelia's not that hard, she's always wanted power to help fight against the darkness.This time though, she won't have to rely on others for the power to do so.Just show her that the abilities will help her meet her goals.

Buffy-might be a bit tricky. She's got the slayer powers already, it'll be hard to balance any new powers with that.She might ask Giles if there's a way to transfer her Slayer powers to a potential. That might help as far as taking on new ones.

Oz will be the real hard one.It might be a bit tricky to get him to agree to it.

As for Sunnydale, they might just decide to stay there until they finish high school. They'll need some time to come to terms with their powers.As for leaving, they are evil forces and Hellmouths all over the world.

I'm not sure interludes are needed.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from Studyofchaos
Nice chapter. One word of caution... if you are going to show the reaction of the heroes, make sure you have the "room" in your current story to do so without disrupting the flow of what you are trying to do with this story. That or do a short side story. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from hamishog
Interludes would be good.
I like the addition of Joyce as she had too little interaction in the show for someone who was actually pretty central to the majority of the characters. And mixing her with Sue is perfect as Sue's powers are almost the ultimate expression of mother - the ability to wrap yourself in a protective field or to disappear when you don't need to be noticed. Uh oh, Dawn and Buffy will never again be able to get away with anything as they won't be able to know if their mother is in the same room. Icky.
Xander and Willow were a given as the two of them aren't really all that connected to their old lives. Personally I think Xander wrote himself off the minute Jesse was turned. He's never exactly believed, or seemed to care, that he had a future, hence his inability to plan for it.
And, just an aside on relationships - Xander, Willow and Cordelia have a connection which has been in existence since kindergarten. It is adversarial but it is a connection. Xander and Willow have a connection. In fact, by observation their connection most closely follows the idea of soulmates, and no, that's not actually a romantic ideal. The legendary Greeks, Castor and Pollux, were soulmates though not romantically involved so whether Willow and Xander ever date or not is entirely moot. They are bonded. And that is an observable fact. I never liked the Xander Cordelia vibe but that's my kink. To my mind it was entirely hormonal and pretty much doomed which is why both times Cordelia dumped him was about pride. Sure, the second time she got a rebar through her stomach but it was still about pride. I didn't like the Oz Willow connection but that's probably because I'm not a big fan of Seth Green. Giles and Jenny have a connection. It makes no sense whatsoever but they have a connection. Though the way she teases him makes me think that there may be daddy issues there. Giles and Buffy have a connection as do Buffy and Dawn and Joyce. You could make a chart but the reality is that the Summers family is the core (and the Summers family actually consists of the Summers and Xander and Willow) with Giles, Jenny and Cordelia as satellites. That's not denigrating anyone. Cordelia really grew as a person in the show though I think that Xander's influence on that is overstated. Jenny was never fully developed. I blame Joss. But then since he killed off Book and Wash in Serenity I am inclined to be less than charitable to the man. But, connections exist. They may not go where you want them to go but they're there. And the addition of artificial imprints (the Avengers in this case) are going to affect how they develop and are expressed. The impetus that started a lot of the pairings in the show just aren't going to exist. Explore it, don't ignore it. Just my twist.
And remember, Giles will do something because it's his duty. So will Jenny, if you think about it. Buffy will do it, likewise, but mostly because it will protect her loved ones. Dawn will do it, period. She'll jump at the chance because she won't care about the consequences. Oz and Cordelia will be the hardest. Oz is very zen but he's also pretty passive. Oz will help but at this time he doesn't have the emotional connection he would have had later. On the other hand he'll understand and empathize with Spider Man and understand his motivations. He may view it as karma; if he turns his back on a chance to make a difference isn't he, in effect, condemning others whom he might have spared. Oz might do it but it would be a rational, not emotional, choice. Cordelia is harder. At this point in time she is not yet integrated into the group, however she has a greater connection with both Willow and Xander than she does with anyone except, perhaps, Harmony. While antagonistic Xander and Willow are fixtures in her life. While it was never addressed Jesse was fixture in her life as well, albeit as a inconvenience. But she could count on his adoration, his idiocy. She might not like it but she could count on it. And she, Xander and Willow are natives, born and bred. Xander's family has been in town for generations. Oh, and Xander, Willow and Joyce have a relationship. Almost from their first meeting Joyce became their picture of motherhood. They were starved for affection and they responded frenetically to the offhand way she presented it to them. Okay, if Maggie Walsch had met them at this stage she could have happily written papers on the whole group and probably given the Initiative a miss.
And I hate Angel, but I blame that on Ann Rice. And that other one. And those sparkly guys. What is it with people and vampires? Why do people find something that regards you as lunch sexy? And don't even get me started on Red Riding Hood.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Imagine when they go out on a date and the boyfriend thinks they can get some on the first date when WHAM! Instant forcefield blast to the cojones!

Hmm you raise a good point, he only wanted to go on a road trip but when that didn't pan out he didn't even consider college and only went into construction when it popped up...being the head of operations for the African division of the New Council wasn't even a blip for him.

I see Xander and Willow as a brother/sister duo than a romantic one from day one, never understood the need to have them have a fling or why he gets screwed but she is forgiven. I do like Cordy with Xander because it is the case of opposites attract and they challenged each other or showed they cared in their own ways despite their at first adversarial relationship. I mean look at Wally and Artemis, they started the same and ended up wth one another so I see it the same way but that doesn't mean I will do so in this story this early on the board.

As for Oz/Willow, I liked his quiet cool to her shy flower, don't get me wrong though I liked Tara as well and was saddened by her death and felt Warren deserved what he got even if it was followed by Dark Willow.

Giles and Jenny deserve to explore their feelings for one another, he wouldn't have gone ballistic over her death if he had not loved her. I want to shown that Joyce and her children (both by blood and association) are a unit, they will struggle but shall rise together.

And yes Cordelia did become so much more than she once was though I didn't approve of the possible love for Angel since it felt like a repeat of what he had with Buffy.

I will try to approach Oz logically and how this could be beneficial, with Cordy it is about her survival and the people who really are the only ones who are true to themselves and not out to please anyone like her sheep. With Buffy it comes down to family and friends she needs and need her in turn.

Namorita? Well, she kind of became a joke character in Marvel even before she was in that losers team. Plus Buffy would hate not looking human anymore.

I say do the Mini stories. it does not need to be more then a single chapter in length, but what happens on the other side of the Halloween stories is rare.

Review of chapter "chapter seven" from DragonBard

Willow as Ironman or Dr Strange... tough call. Too bad you couldn't have a version of Ms Stark who was also Sorcerer Supreme, like that one What If comic.
Comments from author:
Sorry for the delayed response, real life got in the way but since I am going to hopefully publish another chapter soon I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I don't have all the What if issues so I am not familiar with that one, what was in it and did he had armor on?
