I remember reading that story. I can't remember the title or author, but it was a short story where an alien mercenary company came to Earth and started by offering its services to the highest bidder.

Henshin Academy: A institution to train magical girls (and boys) power ranger esc teams, and anyone who uses some magic or super science device to become a costumed hero. Your party is a group of students who happen to gravitate to each other for some reason, or maybe your a group of teachers trying to make sure that students don't go rogue and outside enemy forces don't mount an invasion.
I've wanted to do something like that ever since I discovered the perfect place to set the campaign. Just from the name, of course... and the fact that it's just up the road from Sunnidale (natural crossover!)

World War Wonderland: The Mad Hatter, a lover of all types of madness, builds a device that allows him to see into other worlds only to discover a new kind of madness not even wonderland has heard of before, War. He has since convinced the other residents of this mystical place to experience this new form of insanity by invading an earth already consumed by World war 2. Can the PCs fend off these invaders or are they doomed to the madness that these creatures bring with them?

I remember a comic book miniseries from the '80s titled THE OZ-WONDERLAND WAR, in which, like it says on the tin, two of the most beloved children's classics come into conflict. It was written by Roy Thomas, naturally, and featured Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew.

LARP of the dead: The players play LARPers who where in the middle of a game when the zombie apocalypse came.

Vagabond: A long time ago, a futuristic world was ending and all reality was peeling away. Today the players play ancestors of those who left to escape their fate as they live in the worlds of others.

Bonus points if they were already playing Humans vs. Zombies.

The PCs, after dreaming of an old man with one eye, wake up to the knowledge that they are Einherjaren--brave warriors who died in battle, spent centuries fighting and feasting in Valhalla, and have now been reborn in participate in a war against destiny on behalf of the gods of Asgard.
This sounds super fun! I love combining fantasy and modern/sci-fi settings. The only thing better than bringing down a dragon is bringing down a dragon with an assault rifle.
Mine would look more like

Space Wizards
Typical dungeon fantasy tropes in a sci-fi world!
Elves specialize in biological and genetic engineering; enhancing lifespans, granting immunity to disease. Dwarves mine asteroids and live in the hollowed-out remains. Humans are rapidly spreading colonists. Orcs use cloning and cybernetics. Powerful wizards go toe-to-toe with space marines wielding railguns and power armor. Mages combine in industrial scale ceremonial magic, enchanting entire ships and powering magical doomsday devices. And of course, space dragons!

Everyone dies in the first 15 minutes because they can't even recognize there's a problem.
