Re: Jab’s Builds! (Stalin! Avengers Builds! Wonder Man!)

As insane as it might sound, the Avengers were my gateway drug into the idea of continuity. My first "real" (read bought with my own money) Marvel comic was a three-issue collection of the main arc of Acts of Vengeance , I was 8 or so at the time and I read those comics to death, which pretty much c...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Darkstar! Crimson Dynamo! Titanium Man!)

Titanium Man's armor shows one idea I've frequently had about Power Armor; namely that the hyper compact armor Iron Man wears should be limited to Tony Stark style genius/experts with a lot of resources. Basically, Iron Man is the epitome of armor technology. It's the peak of the raw amount of powe...

Re: Revised Cypher System Character Creation Help

I created the template, using the guides and examples that were written. I was designing it off of the knowledge of Marvel comics. I just did what felt right, considering my lack of knowledge. I was pretty lost on how to design his claws too :cry: :? In Numenera there is a "Mutant" descriptor, whic...

Re: Revised Cypher System Character Creation Help

Just for curiosity sake, where did you get the Mutant descriptor from?

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Red Guardians! Vanguard! Darkstar! Crimson Dynamo!)

And I thought the DC comics Red Rocket had some bad luck with pilots. As far as I can remember, I only ever seen three Dynamos in action (Vanko, Bukharin and Shatalov) and I always assumed that the armor had at most five or six pilots, just like the Iron Man armor was temporarily piloted by other pe...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Black Widow! Yelena Belova! Red Guardians!)

Then there was that one time the team was government funded, but the writer had a big X-Files/M.I.B. love that turned the book into this kind of political thriller about how untrustworthy the organization they worked for was. But yeah, I definitely see your point there. A sad thing was that John By...

haha, found a great article on Marvel's notorious inker, Vinnie Colletta: https://www.newsfromme.com/2007/05/05/about-vince-colletta/ It's by Mark Evanier, Kirby's assistant & biographer. Some great lines: * Jack never thought Colletta did anything but poor work but he also believed that everyone h...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Black Widow! Yelena Belova! Red Guardians!)

F The subsequent inclusion of the Protectorate, the Atlanteans and Alpha Flight (although it kind of invoke my least favorite trope about Alpha Flight... ask away) Asking away: what trope is that? I called it a trope, but I'm not 100% sure it's the right word. It's the fact that Alpha Flight is one...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Black Widow! Yelena Belova! Red Guardians!)

For me, The Crossing Line is the quintessential "so bad it's good" Avengers' story. The premise of the plot is absolutely spot-on and one of the few times the Avengers are actually used to solve a true international crisis, as per their charter, rather than fighting the super-villain of the day. The...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - Whatever Comes To Mind

I'm absolutely familiar with the series and, in fact, I'm a fan of the author, because you have to recognize that continuing a series by publishing (semi)official porn comics based on it is nothing short of genius.

I would move the deflection power into the Force array, adding a custom flow to it, so that it requires a Lightsaber to use.

Re: Proditor's Pad of Pop Culture and V&V. (NEW! Ladybeard!)

Heya bossman! Ya, as well as can be expected, thanks. Last few...months? years? have been a lot busier than expected. I also had my supers group fall apart, and it removed a lot of my mojo. Right about the same time, I started hanging out with a seedy group of malcontents who got me hooked on...28m...
