Re: Jab’s Builds! (Fairchild! Burnout! Grunge! Freefall! Rainmaker!)

As dumb as Grung's codename was I did like how he used his powers - by not being a powerhouse type. Plus I always went with the idea he was a little smarter than he acted, just a bit lazy. Yeah, it was kind of cool seeing a hero with the Absorbing Man powerset. Gen13 did have some pretty diverse po...

Arkham University: Where the shortest route between you and madness is a good book.

Re: Film franchises that shouldn't have BEEN franchises

From what I heard about the sequel, Pacific Rim should have stuck to just the one movie.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Fairchild! Burnout! Grunge! Freefall! Rainmaker!)

So a Native American with the last name Rainmaker gets weather control powers. That'd be like if Warblade was Japanese, descend from a long line of samurai and his name literally Katana Akira. I'll give Grunge credit, he may be an Asian guy who knew martial arts, but he was also built like a shit br...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Hawksmoor! The Engineer! The Doctor! Gen-13!)

Yeah, for all of the talk when the Nu-52 launched about how they needed to make the DCU stronger by incorporating Vertigo and Wildstorm into the universe, the early attempts at adding Wildstorm characters to the setting were painful. Fairchild was introduced as some scientist working for NOWHERE, Wa...

Re: Ares Edits - Request Thread

With ThierryD's permission, here's some recent examples: Could you modify a pic of Black Panther into a Black Tiger by adding some white stripes along the outer edge of his costume. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-Z8fMwW5/0/3103aef0/O/i-Z8fMwW5.jpg My edit: https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-5b...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jenny Sparks! Apollo! Midnighter! Jack Hawksmoor!)

Was there anything said as to Hawksmoor's ability and what constitutes a city? was it something like the population over a certain number or just that it had been officially named a city? (which would imply some sort of subconscious activation) It seemed to mostly be about size and a minimum level ...

Re: New Green Ronin adventure paths Starting with NetherWars

As an aside, I have been following these boards off and on pretty much since their creation, though I confess that I am nowhere near as diligent a reader and/or poster as greycrusader. (Hi, John!) It’s nice to see that M&M still maintains its core supporters. Cheers! Glenn Hall/hermes Welcome to th...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Swift! Jenny Sparks! Apollo! The Midnighter!)

http://toobusythinkingboutcomics.blogspot.com/2010/06/challenge-of-super-friends-why-warren.html P.S. Oh, and I agree with Halloween Jack that Apollo was never quite in the same league as Majestic or Supreme, so I too would have gone with PL 13 for him, though there were the occasions where he got ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Swift! Jenny Sparks! Apollo! The Midnighter!)

The retort to this would be that many real-world rulers and governments act just like super-villains would if they usurped control over nations. Vladimir Putin has people assassinated and tortured, even leaving aside his autocratic rule. The Iranian mullahs are Islamic zealots who sponsor terrorism...

Re: The Midnighter

OTOH, I would laugh to see Midnighter with his mostly human strength end up facing off against someone who is invulnerable to anything he can do, and sort of stand there blinking. "What's the matter?" "I just ran through this combat six million times in my mind..." "And, lost every time did you? Go...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Swift! Jenny Sparks! Apollo! The Midnighter!)

Superheroes preserving the status quo is a tricky subject. The real reason they do it is, of course, because comic publishers like the comic world to have at least a superficial resemblance to the real world. In-world stories on whether or not superheroes should change the status quo always feel di...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Authority! Swift! Jenny Sparks! Apollo!)

I think one thing about Millar's Authority vs Kelly's Elite is the kind of effort used to tear down the opposing side. Millar specifically calls out superheroes as defenders of the status quo, while throwing in a lot of anti-America, anti-Capitalism ranting as well. He literally mocks the end of Sup...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Union! The Authority! Swift! Jenny Sparks!)

I sometimes think that the post-Ellis run on the title was so bad that the Ellis run is given a bit too much credit in hindsight. My own pick for 'didn't think this all the way through' would be their attack on the alien god. So they encounter some aliens who live inside the entity's body, and prep...
