Re: The Human Torch (Johnny Storm)

https://comicvine1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/original/3/36013/1941587-torch2.jpg I wish people would go back to drawing Johnny this way. It's a much more unique and iconic look for the character, and the more modern take of just "Johnny but orange with a flame aura" don't look nearly as good...

Re: The Fantastic Four

and a forgettable '90s one (with some SHOCKINGLY-bad animation in the episodes I've seen, as well as bad voice acting). That is true . . . for season 1 of the 90s series. For some reason, Season 1 of the 90s Iron Man and Fantastic Four were some of the most TERRIBLE superhero animation ever. Just ....

Re: Mr.Fantastic-vs-Lex Luthor-vs.-David Xanatos:Battle of the Brains

In terms of raw, scientific smarts, Reed is the clear winner. In my mind, Reed's evil counterpart in DC isn't Lex, but Dr. Sivana. Lex vs Xanatos in being a clever, manipulative bastard is hard to call. David winds up looking better frequently, but Lex also has to deal with frickin Superman, not the...

Re: WandaVision

Did they release the fourth episode early internationally? I think the US only got the first three episodes so far.

Re: WandaVision

Also, Ares, does the spoiler policy at the top of this board apply to television programs, too? I'll say "no". TV shows are a bit different from films, though even movies are different these days. I may wind up revising my policy now that we officially have Spoiler Tags. But no, I think w...

Re: Ka-Zar & Zabu

He was initially Tarzan-like in his savage mannerisms and broken English, but shifted into a more articulate guy over time. Which tells me a lot of writers who know of Tarzan have never actually read Tarzan, because he was speaking perfectly articulate English by the end of the first book. Tarzan w...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Genocide! Olympian! Queen of Fables! Paper Man!)

Did I miss your Hercules/Herakles/Harold Campion build? I posted him with the Olympians. I don’t know what Harold Champion is. Harold Champion was an identity DC's Hercules assumed at one point. Initially it was to try and manipulate Wonder Woman to get back at her mom, but over time Herc came to r...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Genocide! Olympian! Queen of Fables! Paper Man!)

It's funny how the mention of Olympian (who isn't even the Olympian Jab built for this set, LOL) sparked quite the conversation about him and the Argonauts. Well, it got into my head, so after doing a little research, I came up with a list of Argonauts who could hypothetically contribute to the Olym...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Genocide! Olympian! Queen of Fables! Paper Man!)

And with Paper Man, we are DONE with the Wonder Woman set! This was an interesting one, as I was unfamiliar with 90% of the characters. A major issue is a Legion-style “Reboot Syndrome” where everyone simply reinvents the characters rather than use the old stories. This can work (Perez made Ares, C...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Psycho! Ares! Genocide! The Olympian!)

The classic Argonauts are in a very real sense, the very first super hero team. It was somewhere between 40 and 90 heroes (and heroine) teamed together. And these were heroes known for their individual exploits: Herakles and Iolaus, Theseus, Atalanta, Laërtes, Castor and Pollux being among the bett...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Psycho! Ares! Genocide! The Olympian!)

The Global Guardians (which initially wasn't even a formal team, just the unofficial title given to a group of foreign heroes who teamed up to aid Superman on a couple occasions) actually had SEVERAL top-tier heroes in terms of powers-the Olympian (demigod level strength and durability, flight, sup...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ares! Genocide! The Olympian! Queen of Fables!)

The Queen of Fables is a great Arcade-style "shows up for a fun adventure" villain who exists to create a fun scenario for the heroes to deal with. She'd make a great regular Captain Marvel foe, but is also a great threat for characters who don't deal with magic as much. She could be a sol...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Psycho! Ares! Genocide! The Olympian!)

There was another Olympian in the DCU at one time-a Greek hero who was a descendant of one of the Argonauts. He wore the legendary Golden Fleece, which somehow granted him the talents of every Argonaut, including the usual flying brick power-set. His fist appearance was in the Super-Friends comic t...

Re: J-Mart: Constantine, Doctor Strange, Doctor Fate, The Magdalena

Magdalena's kind of interesting in that she's basically a more cynical version of the Knights of the Cross from The Dresden Files. Holy warriors wielding magical weapons granted power by the Blood of Christ, working with the Church but ultimately serving God first and foremost, dedicating themselves...
