The Future of Mega City One..
« on: 17 March, 2003, 04:59:50 AM »
Any thoughts on what might happen to Mega City One in the future?

I like all the thought that the citizens might be given more rights.  Though where that might lead...

I can't see ny immediate reason why it should blow up (entirely).

I'd like to see one or two more hints as to what's happened to Mega City Two! Wasn't it rebuilt by Hondo Cit? If so - hostile takeover bid by Hondo Cit for a bankrupt MC1 justice department?

I'd like to see Mega City overrun by monkeys. In hats.

I'd like to see a lot more details of normal life in MCI, maybe showing the differences of different parts of the city (see the difference between the Pit and the other sectors for example) and the future growth of the city as well. Going back to a previous thread, just what does the city look like now. Are we (hopefully) ignoring any element of that Anderson story where all the children disappeared? Seriously though is the population decreasing due to all the big epics combined with low fertility rates, or indeed is it booming?
Redevelopment always brings up new issues, what is buried is often dug up, quite literally sometimes, maybe secrets from the history of the judges?

More power to the citizens? Not very likely I feel, maybe a increased interest in politics, a new crase would be nice.
No need for anything big, just gradual things.

I'd like to see more areas of MC1 defined through good story telling, it's worked so well in the past.

As for the future..

Well there's the major atomic wars of 2150 in Johnny Alpha's universe, parallel realities aside for a moment, could we see demegification become a global actuality in about 25 years from now?

I really liked Wagner's introducion of demegification.  Coinciding with the anti-globalisation uprise of course.  The earth is pretty much screwed in Dredd's time and I don't see how it could ever return while the mega cities exist, leaching all the worlds resources.

Well they've got all the colonies, asteroids etc to leach off as well ;)
I'd certainly like to know more about them, not saying go back to the dropped storyline of the Kleggs/Sino alliance vs MC1 but just a bit more info. What about Luna 1? Hasn't been mentioned since Dredd's body got stolen from the Black Musueum. Only one (albeit massive) city on the moon? I can't believe theres only deep space telescopes on the dark side for example.


Someone was mentioning the Devils belt the other day, maybe this sort of thing can be brought in in terms of anti-globalisation, more back to nature issues? Changes to the environment, remember the land sharks? how many other strange things are there still out there as a result of the Atom Wars, let alone the Apocalypse Wars (all those silos, underwater launchers etc what effects have these had?)

There was mention of a new Luna-1 story.

I think the greatest suggestion that ever came up the chat room was a flying Mega-City with winged Judges...

I would like to see Mega City one taken over by an evil criminal of some kind. Then Judge Dredd, aided by Judge Anderson, takes back the city with the help of a small bunch of freedom fighters. At the end of this story, Dredd would face this evil criminal and....kill him.

Does this ring any bells?

Does it ever..

Bring demegification forward and put an end to this tired plot divice.. forever.

Then top it off with a parallel reality disclaimer; The MC1 we all know and love was never under threat in the first place.
