Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Slott is nailing the FF. Every issue since he took over has brought a grin to my face.

Re: Captain Marvel / Shazam! Thread - Reconstruction and Ramblings

In Curse of Shazam, the Nu-52 Shazam series, they got rid of the 6 Elders entirely. The power solely came from "The Magical Living Lightning" So Billy, Mary and Freddy are pretty generic, Darla can move fast, Pedro is strong, and Eugene can shoot lightning. In the film they gave Freddy a focus on f...

Re: Captain Marvel / Shazam! Thread - Reconstruction and Ramblings

Seems to me the movie kids did something like your concept, Ares. I read them as: Billy: The full power of SHAZAM. Mary: Wisdom of Solomon Pedro: Strength of Hercules Freddy: Courage of Achilles Eugene: Power (lightning) of Zeus Darla: Speed of Mercury All possessing some measure of all the powers, ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (JLU! Mooks! The Air Force! The Injustice Society!)

Young Justice's two villainous families (Sportsmaster, Artemis/Tigress, & Cheshire, and Black Manta & Aqualad) are one of my favorite parts of it.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Stargirl! J'onn J'onzz! Aquaman! The Ultimen! Mongul!)

The Banshee in Secret Six isn't Silver Banshee, but another banshee. They look similar when powered up because, well, they're both banshees.

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

Respectfully disagree. I don't have 24/7 ready-access to super-cleavage, but from my observations it's much more useful pocket than most men might think, and WW's outfit is not big on pocket-space unlike say Black Canary's jacket or Huntress's belt o' pouches, so she'd probably use it relatively of...

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

I'm with Ares. My take on Dinah puts her a half-PL above Batman (and he's stronger), on par with Iron Fist and Captain America (who also out-muscles her) and a notch above Wildcat. I might steal the chi-based Canary Cry – good idea!

Fantomex sucks. I wish I could offer more cogent observations, but I just think everything about the character is completely stupid and he drains all the fun out of any comic he appears in.
Yeah, he and Deadpool together in X-Farce made other books less fun.

So next up... it'll be Marvel- The Letter "F", completing the penultimate letter in my epic set of Marvel builds! After that, it'll be a huge set devoted to the DC Animated Universe!
Looking forward to both of these!

Re: Jab’s Builds (Madelyne Pryor! Madcap! Mimic! Man-Killer!)

When Man-Killer switched to her Amazon incarnation, she started using Pym Particles to grow. Not sure if that stuck.

Man, I always feel like a creeper for even LOOKING at those covers. They may as well rename the title Two Heaving Handfuls of Tits.
I still like John Carter and the Twin Peaks of Mars.

I find your ideas intriguing and would like to subscribe to your comic book.

Re: WAIFU WARZ - Disney Edition: Sleeping Beauty Goes For The Knock Out

I'm really loving the Disney Princesses builds. You've done some very creative stuff mechanically to set them up.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Mega Man 11! Triumph! The Ray! The Punisher!)

Once a hero kills -- however rarely -- the bodies start to rack up. Comics go a long time, and the tenth writer, twenty years down the line, will have grown up idolizing that time Spidey beat Norman Osborn to death with a crowbar. And there goes Spidey. I think a bright line is necessary; if killing...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Static! Kid Devil! Kid Eternity! Danny the Street! Damian Wayne!)

The Adrian Chase Vigilante series wasn't a great series by any stretch, but I'll give it credit for having a definite end goal in sight after a certain point, and decided to showcase the psychological downward spiral of a man who became a crimefighter with the best of intentions, but slowly fell do...
