Re: The Merge: Agents and Powers Chapter 2: Agents Abroad

OOC: From your wording, presumably it does not have any recordings of the murder itself? Indeed it does not. Torque manages to lead the small device into the room proper where it skitters towards him and tilts upward slightly...as if it was a pet eagerly awaiting a command. From what Torque can gat...

Re: The Merge: Agents and Powers Chapter 2: Agents Abroad

Apparently, it has been there for quite a while, spying on what's inside the room. You can see the cops coming in and investigating the murder scene, then nothing for a while and then you entering. And yes, apparently it sends all it sees and hears somewhere else, there are short data bursts sent th...

Also, for some odd reason, many normal bears and other animals have shown a huge increase in intelligence, in some cases approaching or maybe even rising above human levels of intellect.

There is no plot armor in the Merged Universe.

Re: The Merge Universe

Also, he is busy with all the military and security contracts - for example, he personally retro-engineered the Glitter Boy armor from the RIFTS universe and built a series of less-powerful derivatives for the French government to use in their Chasseur program. He's jockeying with Stark for the posi...

Re: The Merge Universe

The Luthor that crossed over does not really have to turn over a new leaf since in his home universe he was never a criminal or bent on world domination (he had more money than some countries, why would he want the additional hassle?). ;)

Re: The Merge Universe

Yeah, Billy Zane would be a good fit. Well, the Luthor who came over has his own powered armor - although he rarely used it, preferring, as mentioned by you, to give his tech to others. He can actually fight, having learned a couple of things from watching Batman and undergoing extensive training hi...

Re: The Merge Universe

It was quite an unwelcome surprise for Luthor when he was arrested shortly after ending up in our world. He put his considerable intellect into his own defence and basically had all " fictional" criminal records of non-natives erased. Since then, he has rebuilt Lexcorp and has a direct line to the D...

Re: Film franchises that shouldn't have BEEN franchises

Ahem... Matrix? The first movie was fantastic. It had groundbreaking FX, amazing fight scenes and a very interesting (even if scientifically nonsensical) premise that tied into philosophical ideas like Plato's cave, Buddhism or the Gnosis. All wrapped up neatly in the end without the need for sequel...

Re: Tenet (New film from the Nolans)

It was certainly something new. Not bad, but I found it a pity that you do not find out much about the protagonist at all. The film builds up a certain distance to its audience that way and I think it hurts it. The effects and ideas implemented here, though, were top-notch and a delight to behold fo...

Re: The Merge Universe

In general, the Merge would offer supervillains the opportunity to turn over a new leaf, especially since Luthor managed to give them all clean slates, at least in the US. I wonder who would take the opportunity and start fresh... On a very much related note in regards to Luthor - the Luthor who cam...

Re: The Merge: Agents and Powers Chapter 2: Agents Abroad

What Adeleth finds is, at first, nothing until she peers in a little deeper, at which point she notices some old pipework...and a small spider-like drone skittering through the pipes...
