Re: Double Dragon

1994 would see the release of a Double Dragon motion picture, starring Scott Wolf (of Party of Five fame) and some guy I've never heard of as the Lee brothers, and Alyssa Milano as Marian.  His name's Mark Dacascos, and as an actual martial artist he was the only person in the film with any actual ...

Nailing Superman

This piece isn't mine, it's from John Wick (the author of 7thSea a lot of other games) and I think he really nailed one of the key points about Superman: he does care.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Shiv! Degaton! Kestrel! Johnny Sorrow! Deathlok!)

One of the weaknesses of the dreadnoughts was also that cooling system was located in the abdomen area, making it a rather easy target. The problem was that a dreadnought without a working cooling system would overheat and explode.

A blast from the past

Hey guys, this is something I wanted to show you. It's a credits page from a 1979 issue of Topolino (i.e. the weekly Mickey Mouse comic magazine from Italy) and look who poped up among the writers. IMG_20190801_203337.jpg As far as I was able to gather Jerry Siegel worked for the Disney Italia Studi...

Siege...
Goddam'it Marvel!

Years ago my first M&M character concept was a cyborg soldier nicknamed Siege.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Brain Wave! Shiv! Degaton! Kestrel! Johnny Sorrow!)

Deathlok is a character I really like, at least in his first two incarnations (Manning and Collins).

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Air Force! The Wizard! Icicle! Vandal Savage!)

Shade was also used to a nice effect in Green Arrow: Archer's Quest, where it was revealed that Ollie actually paid him to remove any link between Oliver Queen and Green Arrow after his death. The base logic was that Shade was both almost impossible to kill and just mercenary enough to do so.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Air Force! The Wizard! Icicle! Vandal Savage!)

The interesting bit about Savage is how every non-comic incarnation was significantly more powerful and dangerous that the original ever was. In the DCAU he was able to regenerate after being blasted to bits (the original had no regeneration powers). The one from Young Justice was the leader of the ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Doomsday! Brainithor! Mooks! The Air Force!)

The Injustice Society! Mirror Image Vilain Teams are always fun, and man, DC has so many goofy villains from the Gold and Silver ages. Also, I see The Rival on that list. Wikipedia says he's the first Reverse-Flash, but was he ever actually called that? Speaking of Reverse-Flash/Zoom, that's anothe...

Hm, unfortunately my copy of the JLU movie never materialized, and I will not build anything from a movie I haven't seen, so I won't be building those characters. Maybe later, if I find a copy. I'll slot something else into that couple of days it would have taken.
What movie?

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...
