Re: Jab’s Builds (Madelyne Pryor! Machine Teen! Madcap! Mimic!)

My only comment on Moonraker is that the book is a lot better than the film.

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

Jab, from your point of view how does lifting strength affect throwing distance? The book contains some math for that, though I believe it's fairly excessive. We can still use that, though. Strength Rank - Weight Rank = Throwing Distance Rank. I was unclear in my question. Hercule has 4 ranks of St...

I thought the Mindless Ones were working as comic editors now.

Re: Darkseid vs Thanos

When they were doing the "Ragnarok" story in "Thor", back in the late 1960s, he wanted the Asgardians to die (like the classic Ragnarok), and have the New Gods spring up. Stan, Roy, et al. said no. This opened the door for Kirby to jump to DC, who were more than happy to introduce his New Gods. But ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Pumyra! Bengali! Lynx-O! Mumm-Ra! Namor Builds!)

The big problem I have with Namor is that his iconic costume is just a green speedo. It's just a bridge too far for me to take him seriously like that. He looks ridiculous. I assume that means you prefer him without the speedo? How about the version from the Busiek & Ross "Marvels"? He doesn't wear...

Re: Superteam Handbook

It leaves me curious about how this all relates to the rest of Freedomverse, such as the first group what with its muscling in on the Freedom League's M.O. There will be guidelines on how to integrate the various teams with existing heroes, such as the Freedom League's presence on the world stage g...

Re: Darkseid vs Thanos

But Darkseid doesn't have the Anti-Life Equation. That's the thing he wants. Unless he's gotten it, and has since taken over the universe. Cosmic McGuffins not withstanding. Pitting Darkseid against Thanos is like pitting Superman against Gladiator or Sentry. Just do a Google search on "Starlin Dark...

Adrien was annoyed with the Blue Shark-bot. Sadly, that annoyance led to a wild swing, missing the android. (Attacking Blue Shark w/3 pts. of Power Attack)

Cause if you're going to call yourself Captain Marvel, you should look the part.
