View Full Version : A Prodigy limited series idea

You know what's the one thing I hate about Prodigy, he's being made as part of the background when he has so much potential.

My idea is to use Emma being suspicious of Scott of hiding something from her and the X-Men, X-Force, and thinks X-23 is involve from what Pixie showed her which was a bloody towel, as well as what she probably told her after fighting the skrulls which was Warpath and Wolfsbane rescueing her with a guy with metal wings which would leave her suspecting that those two and Warren are part of it, and the fact that Warren is Archangel again which explains how he handled that Sentinel alone.

She asked Prodigy to come with her somewhere private so to avoid the X-Men finding out what she will ask of him, since she's doesn't know whether anyone else is involved despite her telepathy. She wants Prodigy to use his "borrowed" skills to find out what four of the X-Men are up to and whether or not it's good or bad.

During the discussion, it's revealed that during his mutant days he was like a pet project for Emma who wanted him to be exposed to other people then just the X-Men since even though he only had the skills when he was near the owner, those skills were still stored inside his head while a safety block was there for a good reason. People like the Avengers when it came to Captain America, Hawkeye, as well as other people like Black Widow and Henry Pym, then there's the vigilantes like Daredevil and the Punisher and martial artists like Shang-Chi and Iron Fist, when it doesn't involve magic. Also some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, awarded reporters, and famous detectives, while being in a city like Manhattan where he's exposed to a lot of people who may have a useful skill. At times she would use her telepathy to make he and him invisible to people near by in an attempt to maximize his exposure when it comes to collecting skills.

She also exposed him to the criminal element who have skills like perhaps Electra and the mafia boss The Foreigner, the one who arranged for Ned Leed to be eliminated, who has certain hypnotic skills like a 10-second hypnotic trance through eye-contact and self-hypnosis to enhance his athletic abilities to extraordinary levels.

She mentions that even though he has been reverted into a normal human, thanks to her daughters removing that block that prevented him access to the skills he absorbed as a mutant, he is now far more formidable then ever and through what old connections she still has she provides him a special suit that similar to his X-Men one, except it's all black and has a mask that covers his whole face while it has the same goggles he wears on it. What makes it special is that it hides his presences to sensors and hides his scent so people like Wolverine and X-23 can't sniff him out, as well as some gagets and weapons that will be useful.

One night he follows "X-Force" and notices that they're wearing different costumes that says that this is a secret operation of sorts, partly with a mini aircraft to follow the Blackbird, and finds out that Domino is part of this. He keeps his distance using espionage and ninja skills, since this is a mission to collect info, and later is surprised that Alchemy is part of this. Soon he is discovered and ends up fighting X-Force who don't know who he is because (1) he wears a mask and (2) his outfit hides his scent. So while making a run for it he ends up matching skills with X-Force like X-23 who was a fellow student and so on.

Can I make a suggestion? This Marvel forum is for discussion of existing books, ideally. Your story ideas should really be posted in the writer's forum. You'll get better criticism there by people who want to help.

Plus, make up your own characters. Fan fiction is essentially pointless, because you can't sell it. As you've heard before, Marvel doesn't accept unsolicted pitches.
