Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Dragon-Ape! Dragon-Cat! Necrophim!)

Hmmm, maybe not. This book came out in 1997, the same year that SG-1 premiered. Of course, I'm not sure when in 1997 the book came out, but unless it was fairly late in the year (SG-1 first aired in July) there may be no connection -- the aliens weren't parasitic in the original movie, right?

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Color me impressed Davies! You managed to make a much better version of Silver Scarab. With the way you described his power set, i'm thinking PL 9 ish, close to 10( if he spent a little more time on his Suit... ). I'm sooo impressed, i'm thinking of "Hiring" you to help develop PALLADIUM ...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

I figure the biggest "What if" of them all would what if Stardust never came to Earth in the first place? Too big a question to answer simply, but Sharana would never have become Basilea, just for starters, and many of the threats that those two respectively overcame would have taxed the ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Shanna! The FF! Mr. Fantastic! Invisible Woman!)

Ben is not the strongest, but the toughest of the Marvel Superheroes -- his fight with the Champion, and more recently with the Immortal Hulk, both establish this.

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

Reed casually develops an invention that easily outpaces what Luthor and his entire organization comes up with, to say nothing of Xanatos, who shrugs off his defeat while Luthor is swearing vengeance ... but the stinger reveals that Reed's work ultimately facilitated Xanatos' actual plan, which is c...
