In June of 1971 Atlas started their first event in the Kree-Skrull war by Roy Thomas & Sal Bushema and marketed in in the Amazing Atlas comics way it would with the dilemma at DC starting there own event storyline that year superhero publishers like Fawcett and Charlton would have to Step up or Fall.
 
Charlton doesn't have the star power to do this shit. Fawcett, by comparison, has a ton of characters to work with.
 
DC comics
Julius Schwartz had a problem. Getting Jack Kirby away from Atlas was a great deal for the company however his New Gods origin was caused great confusion among fans who were reading Superman stories stating that the old gods of Greek and Norse Gods were killed to make way for Highfather and Darkseid while those same Gods existed in the pages of Wonder Woman causing fights to break out between Jack Kirby and Wonder Woman writer Pat Masulli eventually Danny O'Neill trying to bring an olive branch to the situation agreeed to put his Sandman saga story on hold and work with artists Curt Swan and Dick Giordalo and made the Superman/Wonder Woman crossover

A 4 issue event which properly killed off Zues, Hades , Appolo Hercules and Queen Hypolita as the rest of Olympus left for New Genesis

Pat Marsulli was not happy with this decision and would leave DC and go back to Charlton comics the next year ( he would also freelance at Atlas writing on The Mighty Thor.

I'm honestly torn between a Minute man/THUNDER agents crossover or the Return of the Monster Society of Evil
Let's face it. The Monster Society is the clear choice here. Plus if you're really serious about ditching the Daleks after 72, this could be the chance to give the Fawcett versions a nice send-off. The return of the Golden Age Marvels, the destruction of the Daleks and the introduction of the Bronze Age Monster Society. What's not to like? But this new Monster Society, it should be larger, bigger than ever, so that in encompasses ALL of Fawcett's villains. That way you can include every one of Fawcett's heroes, Gold and Silver Age.

Honestly I completely forgot Daleks were still part of Minute-man comics at this time. Yes I see The Daleks joining
  • Mr. Mind
  • Dr. Sivana
  • Ibbac
  • Menace (Creeper villain)
  • King Kull
  • The Madmen
  • Santana (Moongirl villain)
  • Dr. Diablo (Legion of superheroes villain from the Ace comics era)
  • Dracula
  • Black Adam (a mummy inspired version)
  • Brainiac
  • Weeper
  • Dummy
  • Titano
  • Captain Nazi
  • Faura (Mary Marvel villain)
  • Niapac Levram
  • & the Crocodile men

I'm guessing that list would also include villains from Hawk and Dove, The Question, The Hunchback Nyoka and The Creeper's Proteus? Also, how about this design for Fawcett's Dracula?

Actually he will be closer to how he is described in the book so more closer to Gary Oldman's depiction of Dracula
Also King Kull & Ibbac should have a remodel
 
August of 71 Pat Marculli met with Steve Ditko on a do or die project for Charlton Where Daredevil decided he needs help to defeat Claw and so he forms Charltons equivalent of the Justice League, The Defenders, and the Crusader Squadron.
Ditko liked the premise but only agreed so he could work on Captain Atom and Nightshade again

Best of luck to them, but they'll never be one of the big names. Still, maybe they can find a place in indy publishing.

Yes unfortunately
  • Nyoka has the Wonder Woman problem of all her villains are underused because they only show up in her comics
  • Hunchback unfortunately came out to early (his projected audience reads Green Hornet)and his series was canceled around this time.
That being said Ditkos Hawk & Dove are really popular ITTL and some of the MSE Members are their villains (who are blaintently renamed Spiderman & Dr. Strange villains)
 
Anyone worth mentioning?

For a Ruff idea for Hawk and Dove/Question villains
  • Professor Gorgon
  • Owl (Repurposed Mr. Scarlet villain) used as either Vulture and/or Kingpin
  • Comrade Force used as expy for Rhino
  • Discharge
  • Jack O lantern a hybrid of Mysterio and Green Goblin
  • Timber wolf (one time LOSH member) now Kraven knockoff
  • Comrade Rasputin (clearly Barom Modo)
  • Eelnats the Chaos lord
