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

* Also, it's funny how Eiling (a borderline combatant- he can punch out a Soldier with a sneak attack, but Batman one-punched him without breaking stride while walking in another direction) magically becomes a good fighter the second he gets super-powers. Seriously, he's hyper-athletic, doing flips...

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

I prefer to just say "Soldiers of Victory". Besides the fact that the name wasn't used consistently, there's also the fact that a typical story in Leading Comics (which often said "Five Favorite Features" on the covers) had somewhere around 9 "soldiers", plus the horse.

Re: Commander Steel

-Steel is yet ANOTHER "created after the '40s" guy to get retroactively shoved into the All-Star Squadron, which is rather odd, considering that the team already had over FORTY MEMBERS Steel was created in 1978, though his adventures were set nearly 40 years earlier. Roy Thomas just seemed to want ...

Re: Vigilante

-Vigilante was a Golden Age Western superhero active in 1940s comics who had a bit of a mixed-up history (involving two Earths having near-identical Vigilantes), but ultimately the character vanished to history, with others taking the name periodically, like in a Marv Wolfman series in the 1980s. T...

Actually, I kind of thought he was uncomfortable in there, what with the blood flow making his tights fit funny and all.

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

From Shade's reaction to Giganta, one got the impression that Giganta had "Fascination (Going Commando)" as an Advantage.

I always though a Black Mass involved Satan worship.

This clown was one of team of villains when DC went through its "New Teen Titans is our best selling book: turn Justice League of America into a bad NTT imitation/'Justice League Detroit'" phase.

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

Maybe it's my background in martial arts, but the idea of someone who knows how to fight preaching peace isn't really that massive a contradiction either. Being skilled at fighting doesn't have to mean you like hurting people: it can simply mean you refuse to let someone else hurt anyone that doesn...

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

I sort of like the Sword and Shield direction. The Bracelets always seemed weird to me and the Sword and Shield help her stand out from other powerhouses like Sups as well as serve as a visual reminder to reinforce the who "Warrior of Old" vibe she has. Because otherwise she's just sort of "Power G...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Lobo! Barda! Female Furies! Orion! Darkseid!)

In the comics, Orion's Mother Box was used to calm his "inner rage", which meant it could also change his unpleasant, angry, almost distorted face into a Kirby heroic face. Part of the reason for the helmet was because Orion's face would distort in combat.
