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

oh neat- found an old assessment of a Cap story in another build-post of mine: There's a fun series of bits in one of the books I picked up from the Comic Expo- Captain America #369 , which is a combination Cap/Diamondback/Skeleton Crew/SELENE issue: * It starts off with Cap intruding upon the Serp...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Silver Swan I-III! Circe! Orana! Artemis!)

Actually, the Jason Todd death was a printer error. When they set-up the phone numbers the guy that set the type put 'em in reverse. Other than that ken, your right on the money. I just hate the thought of wasting characters...:( The way I heard the story, it was a bunch of Jason-haters calling rep...

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

One of the great things about MHA is that it takes really weird designs, that in most US comics would be instantly labeled as silly, and make them into legitimately cool characters.

Apparently , everybody assumes that she must be Nubia for rather obvi...

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

One of the things that always baffled me was that, when the Bana-Migdal tribe was introduced Nubia was nowhere to be found. I can imagine that there was of kind of editorial mandate not to use her after Crisis (just like Kara Zor-El or any other Kryptonian except Superman). Still, the concept was to...

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

DC missed out on having Byrna Brilyant team up with Minister Blizzard, another cold-themed Golden Age WW foe Oddly, Byrna's last appearance was in WW #28, the 4/48 issue, and Minister Blizzard debuted in #29, the 5/28 issue. Weirder still, she has a modern appearance as a one-shot villain in the Co...

Re: Queen Rhea Supergirl Series Power, need help

If I remember right TV show Daxamites don't fly and don't have heat vision they're more akin to the original Superman concept, or was that just Mon-El?

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Fury! The Amazons! Dr. Poison! Giganta!)

Batgirl III (I think) suggested that the Amazons and the Atlanteans might be related, and there are a few versions of the Atlantis myth which would support that. (And one account of the Amazons, which I stole for my own purposes, has their origins in Western Africa, nearer to the Atlantic than Gree...

Re: Queen Hippolyta (Silver Age)

-Hippolyta actually becomes a lot more prominent in the Silver Age comics, thanks to some goofy stuff. She was largely identical to the Golden Age version, but was now consistently with long blonde hair. The 1960s saw some really goofy stories featuring Wonder Woman and stories of her as a young gi...

Re: Steve Trevor (Modern)

That's complications from the Golden Age/Earth-2 version of Steve. You have them in the Pre-Crisis build too. If "Immediately" means 15 years later in Wonder Woman #170. Personally, I don't mind WW and Trevor not being romantically involved since it removes the "abandons her home and...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wonder Woman! I Ching! Superwoman! Steve Trevor!)

Steve Trevor brings up an issue I'm having in my game right now. One of the female superheroes is dating a cop. The player likes getting role-playing time with her fake boyfriend, but as GM, I struggle with what to do with the cop. I can engage in all the soap opera cliches to threaten their relati...

Re: The Mandalorian

It is always nice to watch a heart-warming Star Wars story. It has honor, friendship, responsibility and compassion in it. Also it disproved the claim that you have to change everything to the core to appeal to the possible new generation fans. You don't need to try to prioritize shaming meat-eater...

Re: The Mandalorian

Star Wars does frequently allow for quiet moments. The original film had the scene of Obi-Wan explaining the Force and the Jedi to Luke, Empire Strikes Back had several quiet moments between Han and Leia, or Luke and Yoda, and Return had quiet moments such as Luke speaking with Obi-Wan, later Leia,...
