Re: Mister B's M&M 3e :: Baptiste (Overwatch)

Sigh.
I really never started to play with Baptiste, since he arrived when I was getting into Overwatch saturation.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wedge! Luke Skywalker! Obi-Wan Kenobi!)

Mara Jade has sort of a complicated legacy. She was dangerously close to Mary Sue territory but her primary purpose was to further Luke's legacy of seeing the good in anyone. She was indoctrinated by the Emperor and also served to further highlight Palpatine's duplicitous nature and the levels of p...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wedge! Luke Skywalker! Obi-Wan Kenobi!)

One cool thing about the original Star Wars, IMO, was that both 3PO and R2 were vital to the success of the heroes. They were the comedy duo meant to add some levity, but at the same time, the entire story doesn't work without them. Even beyond "R2 gets the plot going", if not for R2, Luke and Ben ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Egyptian Gods! Africa Done! Rifts Lemuria!)

This is, perhaps, my favorite Rifts creature so far. Yeah, these guys really stand out. Standard-issue "Rifts Race of Stereotypes", but a completely unique look, quirkiness without being weird, and a makeshift "shell" that you can add stuff to as you please? It's unique AND can be different from pl...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Star Wars- Stormtroopers! Rebels! Adm. Ackbar! Wedge!)

Wedge was also the one that found Luke and Han on Hoth and was the first to take down an Imperial walker with the tow cable. And he got shots in on the second death star power core right alongside the Falcon. That's a pretty good set of accomplishments for a side character Wedge is the kind of guy ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Monark Starstalker! Yie Ar Kung-Fu! Star Wars!)

One interesting bit about the Force Choke in the first movie is that the audience assumed it to be telekinesys, but it could as well be a different application of the Jedi Mind Trick. It's entirely possible that Vader is just causing a psychosomatic reaction into that guy.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Monark Starstalker! Yie Ar Kung-Fu! Star Wars!)

Star Wars is bar none my favorite science fiction franchise of all time. There's just something wonderful about it, likely tying in my love of crossover and cross genre fiction. It basically brought sci-fi back to its fun, pulpy roots while throwing in new ideas. Lucas admitted that it was a combin...

I would have done Picard at PL7, but otherwise nice work.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Darkhawk! Peristrike Force! Fraternity of Raptors!)

The weird thing about the Raptors is that they could have been included in much more coherent way, while keeping most of their elements intact. Let me paint you a picture: The Raptors are a secret order/military unit working with or for an established alien power in the MU; To prevent the loss of in...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Future Man! Futurist! The Drug Lords! Darkhawk!)

Given that, there was a precedent for DH'a wonky new powers. As Jab briefly mentioned, during the final stretch of his solo series, after discovering many elements about his alien counterpart, Darkhawk obtained an "evolved form" of his original android body with enhanced powers. The new version cou...

Sounds like DC later went on to remake Dark Hawk and change his name to Jaime Reyes?
There is more than a passing similarity.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Future Man! Futurist! The Drug Lords! Darkhawk!)

I'm a sucker for Darkhawk, mostly because I really loved the design, but I can see how the character was pretty much tossed around from the start. Darkhawk is a good example of a simple but awesome character design basically falling to Donna Troy syndrome. I actually thought the original origin for ...
