Got it? Are you sure? Alright then son, buckle up.

Now you have to reinvent their originstory. You can change whatever you want, within logical parameters. For example,you have Murdock gain cyber-implants and become Daredevil, but you can't make him a SHIELD Agent, give him implants, ditch the lawyer-stuff and costume, because then the only thing that resembles DD is the name.

But here's the catch/swerve to make things interesting:

You also have to change the setting/time period/universe. Having Peter be the son of AIM Agents who's also black and gay is "new" and all,but hardly a revamp. So why not put him in a futuristic world, or turn him into a Spider-Monster in a fantasy land? That kinda stuff.
