Marvel characters are coming to the big screen more than ever before. Marvel Studios are continuing to develop new characters and more potential films. Fox Studios are trying to compete with Marvel through their ongoing development of the X-Men franchise. Both studios are generating high quality films based on various Marvel characters.
Two of the potential teams that might make it to theaters or to a Netflix series are the Starjammers and Strikeforce Morituri. These two teams seem to be radically different but they share two key similarities.
Strikeforce Morituri is a last ditch effort by the governments of earth to combat the alien invasion by the Horde. Conventional military efforts have not slowed the invasion and new methods were required. The Morituri project was designed to generate a new kind of soldier that could combat the alien threat and bring peace to the planet earth. The Strikeforce was assembled through recruiting individuals for the Morituri Process. The process provided individuals with super human abilities and powers but the price was extremely high. The process would break down the molecular structure of the individual within one year and the person would die. Morituri is Latin which means we who are about to die.
The Starjammers were born out of a spirit of desperation. The group started with four members who fought their way out of the Shi’Ar (pronounced Shee Are) slave pits. The team worked together to free themselves from their captors and began seeking ways to help others gain their freedom as well. The result was an overall insurrection against the Shi’Ar Empire.
Battle with Aliens
The whole reason that the Strikeforce was assembled was to combat the threat of the Horde. The battle with aliens had made its way to earth. The team would be used as a quick response force to fight off the alien invaders. The team did nothing but fight with the Horde. Strikeforce Morituri was designed to not only combat the ongoing threat but to end the war by defeating the enemy.
The Starjammers are space pirates in an ongoing battle with Shi’Ar (pronounced Shee Are) Empire. The group have become the leaders of an insurrection to overthrow the illegitimate rule of the evil Deathbird. The Starjammer is a stolen Shi’Ar scout ship and with it the team battles aliens from multiple worlds including the Brood and the Badoon.
