Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

That's fair. Food for thought come August I suppose.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

You know, a timeline of this setting would not be a bad idea. As well as a good breakpoint until next month. Not happening, sorry. Not yet anyway. A brief summary of the three most significant eras of this setting would also be good (1956-1971: The First Superheroes and the Institute, 1971-1998: Th...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

honestly make it sound like most creators are better off coming up with their own origin for Dracula, rather just going with the implied link to Vlad the Impaler. Pretty much. Stoker's Count holds forth on his ancestors with considerable pride, which suggests some connection, and him being one of V...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Karen Nichols liked to think of herself as a fairly typical Canadian teenager, growing up in Edmonton's suburb of St. Albert. Sure, she'd actually read every page of her smartphone's manual, and she'd rebuilt an old desktop computer so that it worked like a thousand times better than a new model, b...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

I take it that Lord Greystroke was well acquainted with Dame Beatrice Barrowman well and long before Argus was created?

(I also headcanon with Dame Barrowman that she served as the inspiration for Oscar Wilde who she knew in the biblical sense as well. What can I say, sexuality's a spectrum.)

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

The Ultra Girls, conscious of their role in the Green Inferno's creation, have made an attempt to befriend and recruit them. They have succeeded in the former, but have been unable to persuade them to leave the Sahara. "This is where I'm supposed to be," is all that the Inferno will say in response...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

The truth is that she's not from Earth ... not exactly. She came there from the Sprawl, once a megacity that existed somewhere on an alternate Earth in that world's mid-22nd century. Their world was dying, and so scientists in the Sprawl-to-be activated a device that tore them away from their world...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

She has also worked with la Belle and la Bete when she travelled to France, and has a somewhat adversarial friendship with Robin Hood (whom she somehow recognized as the product of Morgan's meddling, much like she herself.) Okay, now I'm starting to wonder if this Morgan feller had a hand or was in...

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

While Nike was invited to join the Power Company, she has politely declined, preferring to focus her efforts on Greece and its environs rather than be constantly drawn into global affairs. Yet if there was any group of people capable and worthy enough of helping her set up the Second Olympus (which...

"Guys," she said. "I think he ... no, it's an idiot. A great blind idiot." She shook her head. "No, no, I can't ... this thing is the Walter Mitty of its species. Everything it has ever pitched out into the collective unconscious, all the bits about it being the great priest king of it's kind? All ...

Like Daikaiju Megapteran? Kill on Sight. Send in Paragon or Super-Giant.
Pretty much. And then there are the next two, who are more or less "All Hands on Deck" type monsters.
Kthulu and Tiamat... :shock:

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Nice take on Mothra.

And I just can imagine all the various standard procedures and tactics towards the various kaiju and daikaiju.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Another account suggests that a well-known surgeon and philanthropist purchased them from Danby, subsidizing the exhibitionist's legal bills, while returning the gigantoprimatus specimen to Dread Island, where they were supposedly given a humane burial. That's probably the one that happened IMO. An...
