Superman, Hulk, Spiderman, Wonder woman, Captain America, Wolverine, Batman... The list goes on and on. The list of unique characters that dominate the comic book scene. Some are good, some are evil, but all of them are unique and impressive in some way or another. The above picture is a climactic point of interest for pretty much all comic junkies, because it draws on speculative fiction and fan fiction and slams them into a series of action packed throw downs that every comic fan wanted to see.
As literary junkies, I wonder what kind of epic tale would YOU weave, if you were to take some of the most amazing or unique literary MC's and pool them together with a bit of plot. What mix of MC's would you like to see breaking their way through one grand novel of an adventure/story?
I.E. Huck Finn and Bilbo Baggins go on a journey which brings them to meet Bella & Edward. I'm not saying Bella or Edward are amazing MC's, nor am I saying they aren't.... Remember everyone has their own opinion. The point it, if you want to bring a cast of various literary MC's together, who would you want in your story?
