This will be a list that will illustrate some of my ideas for a comic book reimagining for some anime/manga. I would like for these series to be done by IDW or Dark Horse. So look it over and tell me what you think.

1. Fairy Tail Forever

Natsu "The Salamander" Dragneel

Age 24. Half- Japanese. This Natsu is different from the Natsu that you're more familiar with. He's no longer your typical shoune hero. He still gets motion sickness except that it's been heavily toned down. One time when he was 15, he was visited by his future self. He only said one thing to him, "Something bad is going to happen tomorrow". Young Natsu didn't know how to interpret this sentence and he was also wondering how his older self could actually be standing right in front of him. Before he could get his answers, Future Natsu disappeared in a flash of light. The next day, Lis, Natsu's childhood friend, is murdered. No one knows who did it. The killer was never caught. It was because of this, that Natsu becomes angry. To this day, he is still as angry as he was back then. No longer is he the happy boy that used to be, the one that Lis loved so much.

He gains the nickname, "The Salamander", when reports of a man being engulfed in flames is saving people from building buildings. When the rescued victim saw the man, he looked as if the flames were not harming him, hence the name, "The Salamander". A mythical creature that is said to live in fire or withstand its effects.

Lucy Heartfilia:
24 year old Lucy is just starting out as a journalist. So far, she has been searching for the mysterious Fairy Tail, a gang made up of super-powered misfits. However, she finally finds a link to the gang in the form of Natsu Dragneel, one of its members. She joins him on his quest, hoping that he may lead her to Fairy Tail. Natsu is reluctant to take Lucy along at first but over time, she starts to grow on him. Although she has kept this a secret from everyone (including her father), she too has strange abilities. Apparently, she has the ability to summon creatures from other dimensions

Basically, Natsu is a byronic hero who throughout the series, starts to evolve into a better person. The other members of Fairy Tail make appearances once Natsu decides to take Lucy to their headquarters, an abandoned factory. As you can see, this series is more sci-fi than fantasy.

Naruto: Men of Shadows

Naruto Uzumaki is a young orphan boy who is taken in by his supposed godfather, Jiraiya. You see, his parents, Minato and Kushina were killed by the masked man, Tobi. Jiraiya teaches Naruto the ways of an assassin in order for Naruto to be able to exact his vengeance on Tobi. He has to learn the ways of being stealthy and to be able to be a more efficient killer.

Hi, this is essentially a cross post of the topic you already started in the Manga forum (/forumtopic-900919/should-comic-book-reimaginings-of-anime-and-manga-exist so I'm closing this one. If you are expanding on ideas you started there, just edit your existing posts, or add a new post (if it doesn't result in two or more posts in a row by you.)

This version of the thread in particular,though, has pushed the idea even more into territory that would make it appropriate for the Creative Corner" forum. If you want the other existing thread moved from "Manga" to "Creative Corner" just let me know.
