I echo Ares' sentiment-I will be watching this thread closely! Superb work so far!

Re: He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse

I enjoyed it. I could have done without the "Easter Special" version of He-Man, which is (as per Davies) a bit too much "Spider-Verse's Spider-Ham" type material. Curious to see where the writers go with the idea that there is only ONE evil version of He-Man in the multiverse and why.

All my best

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

The Black Cat series has been fun reading so far, restoring Felicia Hardy to her proper personality and role in the MU, along with differentiating the character further from the far better known Catwoman. It gives her a proper gang and establishes Black Cat's history with other super-thieves of the ...

Re: The Mandalorian

Still think they missed the obvious protagonist of such a series, namely Boba Fett.

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 Setting Detail

So the Vanguard replaces UNIQUE, essentially? But with a bit more operational independence? Do they operate in any of the three Security Council nations which historically resist international intervention, China, Russia, and the U.S.? The first two have pretty strict controls on non-state Supers (t...

Re: Watchmen: Eppur Si Muovo

I don't have HBO (once did, but just eventually found I wasn't watching enough to justify an extra charge on my bill), but apparently it is a sequel series based on the ending of the comic, not the movie (which I liked, actually); so Ozymandias unleashed the "squid" bio-weapon, rather than staging a...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 Setting Detail

Why were Ultimaid and Oblivion Knight allies with Vladimir? Sorry if I’m being obtuse, but Ultimaid seemed a straight up hero, and Amanthi’s cause really doesn’t dovetail with the Vampire Lord’s dreams of horror and conquest.

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 Setting Detail

Was Ultimaid captured after the rescue? And is the investigation of the motivations behind the various "Children of the Night" turning up any clues? Was Dracula truly destroyed?

All my best.

Re: Superteam Handbook

One minor disappointment I had with the final published work is that I didn't get to coordinate very closely with the artist who rendered my Project Freedom heroes, unlike the characters I did for Rogues Gallery (or even the earlier 2e adventure book, All-In )); while the illustrations are obviously...

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

The original version of the LSH definitely showed its age in having a vast overabundance of nearly identical Midwestern-looking white kids.

The above redesigns were not the solution to said problem.

All my best.

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Battle Magus! Lord Magus! High Magus!)

I have no problem with a "more realistic" treatment where super-heroes cannot always protect civilians, are sometimes forced by circumstances to use lethal force, and have to grapple with very difficult moral/ethical questions. Hell, two of my all-time favorite series are the original Squadron Supre...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Valis! Ninja Warrior! Clone High! Sauron! Femme Fatales!)

Huh. Erik Larsen clearly wasn’t reticent about coming up with freaky-looking, unattractive female villains (neither was Peter David over in X-Factor, the Hell’s Belles), whereas later they got redone as generic “hot comics chicks” with an odd trait or two. Though Larsen’s costume designs are just pl...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Nuckelavee! Werewolf! Windigo! Tarasque! Siren!)

Yeah. I recently worked on a project where I was researching a much more recent historical period, and even in the relatively recent past, settlers needed to be near water-lakes, rivers, or even just streams and creeks-in the age just prior to mass industrialization, being near a source of potable w...
