Aaron Diaz of Dresden Codak decided to create another of his famous reboots.
Here’s the premise:
I wanted to make an X-Men reboot that plays to the strength of the concepts, namely growing up as a teenager, dealing with those who are different and how to deal with those who hate you. The primary change in my setting is that the mutations have a clear sci-fi foundation rather than just being random superpowers. Mutants being “the next stage in human evolution” was biologically dubious in the 60s, and now it’s just corny. Additionally, I think the X-Men premise only really makes sense in a setting without other superheroes. With that in mind, here’s my pitch…
Another webcomic, but I’ve been reading this one for years. This particular example isn’t related to the main story in anyway, but I went with this since there is quite a bit of continuity to be familiar with.
