Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Dean Martin himself is the epitome of “martini flavored,” although it should be noted that he was a strick teetotaler whilst performing. His ever present tumbler of scotch was normally apple juice, he certainly partied as hard as anybody else in the Rat Pack, but he only ever worked clean.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man! Hardcore!)

Hawkeye was a jobber, so were Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. Black Widow wasn’t a “jobber” in the usual sense, but she was basically a disposable “femme fatale” who vamped it up with Tony Stark... and then vanished for several years.

Re: Woman faces descrimination as police and media refuse to label her crime "rape".

I haven’t read anything about this case other than the linked article. I’m willing to accept that the judge was sincere in thinking she was acting out of a temporary mental defect and isn’t likely to be a danger in the future, given proper mental health support (and probably several pounds of psycho...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

I drive everyone in my family bonkers by using nautical jargon in everyday speech. This was drilled into me in the service and I still work in the maritime industry, so everyone I interact with on a regular basis uses the same jargon. We’re pretty much all retired Navy, retired Coasties, the occasio...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Almost every Bond film plot (especially from the Connery/Lazenby/Moore eras) will work fairly well as a street-level superhero story, if you shave off the serial numbers and maybe give the faceless goons slightly better weaponry. Most Bond master-villains are pushovers in a fight, even against Bond,...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Luke Cage! Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man!)

Of course, DC tends to focus more on "Rogues Galleries". Captain Boomerang isn't a jobber like, say, Comanche is. He appears in COUNTLESS books as a recurring guy. The Flash & Batman in particular took major focus on that, to great success. [/quote That’s kind of my point. Turning a “jobber” into a...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

I joined the Coast Guard when I was eighteen and got assigned to shipboard service straight out of “A” School. I haven’t had a standard ‘go to bed at night, sleep for eight hours, then wake up in the morning’ schedule ever since.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Luke Cage! Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man!)

Marvel has oodles of jobbers, but they’ve never really been good at developing them. Most of DC’s most popular bad guys are jobbers too, but writers have given them much more attention over the years. But you’ll find people happily buying merch for and writing blog posts about how much they love Pen...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

I live on the West Coast (UTC−08), but my “day job” keeps me dealing with people in time zones all across the Pacific. I deal with people in Indonesia (UTC+8), Vietnam (UTC +7), South Korea and Japan (UTC +9) on a regular basis. Plus, every now and again I’ll get sucked into dealing with something i...

Re: Woman faces descrimination as police and media refuse to label her crime "rape".

Just when you thought a woman raping a man by forcing him to comply by threatening him with a machete was the most disgusting example of a judicial double-standard, we have this bullshit : Nataliia Karia avoided prison time despite pleading guilty to attempted murder, third-degree assault and crimin...
