Crossover Wars: the video game?

This is not only a fun one to think about, but something that might be seriously considered by people (like Littlebeast, of course, since he already is partway there with his characters already being sprites).

I have had MUGEN on my computer for some time, and I've wondered what it would be like to have original superheroes on there (as in, not the Frankensprites of Marvel vs. Capcom characters they have now, and characters that the creators could fully own). I wonder what it would look like if there were Crossover Wars characters made for the game. The way something like that could happen, I'd think, is that each creator would draw their own character(s) in the various poses (or just draw body parts, to connect together later for the different poses) and have those be the sprites, getting somebody involved who knows how to do the coding well. Obviously, such a situation has problems--not every creator has the time and some are off the web in some way, but it would be pretty fun to think of these characters and what they would do in such a situation.

And what would their special moves be? I would imagine Scale might rely a lot on teleportation, with an ability to access her Ironkeel armor (or fighting the whole fight in it). The Editor would have to be a difficult character, with a lot of magical attacks (he'd be boss-tier, after all). Celine could have a variety of telekinetic and mind control moves, and so on.

What do you guys think?
