Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Flash! Suicide Squad! Captain Marvel! Stargirl!)

The big problem with Flash's Rogues are that they're blue-collar villains because he's supposed to be a blue-collar hero. In spite of being constantly put into one of the big seats, the basics of the character were much more grounded and most of his villains were designed by consequence. Some even w...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warlord! Green Lantern! Vixen! Grodd! Hawkgirl!)

General purpose answer to the entire Thanagarian series of builds. In short, I really loved the DCAU interpretation of the Thanagarians. While I agree that putting Hawkgirl in the main rooster and pushing her for the entire 1st Season or so (while Worfing Superman) was a really stupid move, I think ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Giganta! Green Arrow! Black Canary! Huntress! The Question!)

The Hawkgirl vs Thanagarians episodes was pretty much the JLU homage to Firefly, by having Vig (Nathan Fillion) and Vixen (Gina Torres) as the supporting cast... In spite of the fact that neither of them was space-trained. From what I heard the plan was to include Black Canary as well, but she was c...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Annihilator! Giganta! Batman! Zatanna! Green Arrow!)

Sad thing about Ollie's "manwhore" reputation is that it was completely unearned for the longest time. He was completely faithful to Dinah up until his death in the 90s (he'd unknowingly fathered Conner Hawk years before becoming a hero), with one exception. And in said exception's case, he was inj...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wonder Woman! The Atom! Annihilator! Giganta!)

I had a guy with a scoop, but he threw grenades and I called him the iron Grenadier. His suit was heavily armoured. He had flight like Boomerang. I'm pretty sure I stole him from G. I. Joe. Well, the Iron Grenadier were Destro's elite troopers in G.I.Joe. Also, there was Hardball, one of the charac...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Orion! Darkseid! V. Savage! The Shade! Wonder Woman!)

The best day of the Atom's life He did also see the most advanced nanotech of his career and was able to keep it from destroying the world through a combination of brilliance and carefully applied violence. But yeah, Wonder-Cleavage. I really dig how the lead up is WW says to Atom "I'm going to nee...

Re: Vibe

-Vibe comes from that weird era of DC Comics where they decided that since all of the "classic" Justice Leaguers had successful books of their own, they didn't need to be on the League anymore, and so a team full of newly-created Jobbers would be best. This has actually happened more than once (the...

I gotta say it's annoyingly difficult to design at PL8 while still leaving room for customization.
I have to disagree, some of my best design in 2e I did at PL8.
I don't play 2e, this is 3e. 3e with it's very annoying habit of forcing double payments for very stupid things.
Like what?

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Orion! Darkseid! V. Savage! The Shade! Wonder Woman!)

Using Hawk & Dove as foils for Wonder Woman was an absolutely brilliant move, since Diana is pretty much a character defined by her contradictory nature (which is one of the reasons she is so hard to write). Personally, I really like Hawk & Dove as a concept, but I can see how hard they're to write ...

Re: Lashina

-Lashina is the leader of the Female Furies, despite having one of the odder power-sets (Whips are generally the purview of cat burglars & other villainesses, not hunter/assassins). She's still a deadly warrior, and has by far the most showings of all the Furies (since she was briefly used in Suici...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Parasite! Supergirl! Steel! Brainiac! Lobo!)

My personal take on Scott Free was that he's the Batman of the Fourth World: all is "powers" comes from his personal conviction, his ability to fight for an impossible goal without even considering to surrender in spite of how outmatched he is. In actual fact Scott has, possibly, more in common with...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Lex Luthor! Livewire! Volcana! Parasite! Supergirl!)

Steel and Superboy were the two best things to come out of the Death of Superman. Steel in particular was the one replacement Superman who actually had Superman's morality and ethics, while being the least powerful of the bunch. He was also kind of interesting in that his armor wasn't your typical ...

Re: Galatea

To me Galatea will always be one of the main reasons I can't take CADMUS seriously in any continuity. Everytime they do anything it always ends up screwing up everything. They wanted to be safe from superman so they created an evil superman they can't fully control and is power hungry and sadistic....
