Mask would come across so low rent compared to GI Joe in terms of size and scale so why bother - You could just make up a mini-series about a small Joe Squad vs a small cobra squad and it would pretty much replicate MASK v Venom. As for Transformers, at the point Ex-Rid is at, GI Joes take would seem so low-fi not just to the Cybertronians but also to the current Human army. And this would all mean that GI Joe and Mask would have to acknowledge that aliens are real.

I've probably already given this more thought than Ryall would seem to.

I can only seeing this killing my interest in the books. At this point I'm already considering cancelling my orders for everything except MTMTE once sins ends and while that may seem unfair to Scott, fact is the windblade second series wasnt great and the thoughts of MORE starscream vs windblade doesnt fill me with any joy.

This could be where I get of the train. Ah well.

I would rather IDW do an All-New All-Different shared universe between The Transformers, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., ROM, The Micronauts, Action Man, Dungeons and Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, Jem & The Holograms, Battle Beasts, and My Little Pony without trying to mesh their current series and/or previous continuities.

Basically it would a new line of comics separate from the current The Transformers, MTMTE, TAO, G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, and the MLP titles and universes and you can put the current Micronauts, ROM, Action Man, titles and IDW just bring the current titles in the Revolution Universe because they're still fairly young and you bring IDW's original G.I. Joe universe in it (that is if Hasbro/IDW want to salvage it, from I've read about it IDW's original G.I. Joe universe is such a mess that it seems that IDW has abandoned in favor of G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero). I would be in favor of that.

IMHO trying to smash all these different continuities together reeks of DC's crap like Flashpoint event. While I haven't read the book I did watch the animated movie The Flashpoint Paradox which the book is based on and it was the easily the worst animated movie I've seen in a long time everything in it absolutely SUCKS! I wanted to wash my eyes with bleach after it was over it is that awful. Thankfully I watched this POS on Netflix and didn't "pay" for it and now I never want to see it again. Now granted I know that the movie and the book are different media, but still if WB and DC wanted me to buy that book after watching that crap they can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which happens first. And to make matters worst apparently a Flashpoint style storyline will kick off season 3 of The Flash and might the "mega crossover" that the CW has already announced between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow and if the endings to season one to both Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow already hinting at something like that.
