Re: Jab’s Builds! (Circe! Artemis! Dark Angel! Maxwell Lord!)

Veronica Cale is SUCH a carbon-copy of Luthor; I know Rucka says this was deliberate, but to what end, exactly? Was he planning on some sort of subversion of the concept? Otherwise, she's just a jealous, wealthy businesswoman out to make Wonder Woman look bad in the public eye (which I guess also s...

Re: IRL-Historical M&M builds: bad idea?

I think it sounds like a fun idea, so long as it's done for fun and not to dump on historical figures you have issues with. Artistic license is completely understandable and justified, given we don't really have "stats" for the real world in that sense. And I can guarantee that, at worst, ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Cyber! Silver Swan I-III! Circe!)

The "War of the Gods" storyline was such an awesome idea with such a meh execution. All of the various pantheons of Earth going to war in this massive free-for-all, being manipulated by this powerful enchantress whose soul is bound to a goddess of magic that felt snubbed by the gods in gen...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Nubia! Egg Fu! Mouse Man! Dr. Cyber!)

Dr. Cyber feels like she should be a bigger deal. A nice reminder that not all of Diana's opponents need to be mythological in origin. Kung is kind of interesting since in older Eastern mythology, especially stories like The Journey to the West, you could learn Taoist tricks that let you shapeshift ...

Re: Solar's Build Thread - Boku no Hero Academia Update

I've probably mentioned it before, but it's interesting that there isn't really a "Justice League" type team for the setting, and that Pro Heroes in general tend to operate as solo acts with a number of sidekicks serving under them as assistants rather than a full on team of equals. Part o...

Re: J-Mart: Loki PC, Frost Giants, Fire Giants, Dragons, Constantine, Doctor Strange

When it comes to the Big Two's most powerful heroic magic users, Dr. Fate has the cooler look, but Dr. Strange is the better character. I don't know 'bout that Ares. Much as i'm an "Old Marvel" mark, i actually think Fate has more power that Strange( admittedly not all his own ) and possi...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Cheetah I-IV! Baroness Paula! Nubia- The Black WW!)

I think it'd be cool if Nubia's outfit colors reflected the Pan-African flag the way Diana's reflects the USA flag.

I like the explanation from the animated movie that the outfit was designed to honor the nation she was acting as an ambassador to.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Giganta! The Blue Snowman! The Cheetah!)

Cheetah is probably Diana's most recognizable for (or was for decades before Circe), and was likely intended to be Wonder Woman's "Lex Luthor" as the clever manipulator who succeeded more through cunning and guile rather than power. And while that can work for some characters, for someone ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Amazons! The Mask! Giganta! The Blue Snowman!)

"Cult of the Crimson Flame" is such a cool name, it's a shame it hasn't been used more.

Re: RPG Review Request Thread

I do need to actually sit down and work on this section of the forums. I plan on a few announcements and such this weekend, so hopefully I can spend some time then to get these reviews going.

Re: J-Mart: Beholder, Vampires, Werewolves, Hellboy, Harry Dresden, Zatanna, The Hand

I've heard in various places that Foo Dogs gain power based on the place they protect and how much time they spend there. Growing up around Harry, a mighty wizard, made Mouse powerful even by Foo Dog standards. After spending time protecting the CARPENTER'S home, Mouse has become even more dangerous.
