Re: Name for a character

Thanks for the replies, out of those suggested so far 'Shade' sits most comfortably in my head-space (though of course that could change again at some point)

Name for a character

I've finally reached 70 characters in my 'Next-Gen' verse (I was at 68 for ages which poked annoyingly at my OCD) and while I'm happy with them all for the most part I'm not happy with one of their code names, it just doesn't 'sit right' in my head, I wonder if anyone has any ideas? The character is...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Montenegro! Doombringer! Steel Serpent! Orson Randall!)

Oh good! Someone DOES know this guy :). I remember you being familiar with that Heroes for Hire book, so I suspected. I realize this last day was full of lesser names, but Iron Fist is a tough set. Most of the bigger names are grouped together, so you need to stat them out at once. And I came up wi...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Misty Knight & Colleen Wing! Cockroach! Boris & Ninotchka!)

Aside from the Danny/Misty relationship (I've always preferred Colleen as a potential partner for him) I agree with everything you've said. I think Collen works better as a friend for Danny. I liked that he didn't just fall in love with the first woman he spent time with outside of K'un L'un, even ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Misty Knight & Colleen Wing! Cockroach! Boris & Ninotchka!)

Ah, Iron Fist. One of my favorite comics characters ever, and much like Capt. Marvel over at DC, criminally underused. Christopher Priest, for all the good he's done for Black Panther and Milestone comics, strikes me as incredibly petty sometimes. When his Iron Fist/Power Man book was canceled, he ...

Re: Valkyrie 616 help?

I've read maybe a half-dozen comics in which Valkyrie appeared in my 30+ years of reading comics, I cannot recall any where she was a major player. So I won't pretend to know if the comics depict the character as LGBT... I do find it interesting that when I google her these days, writers for Cinema...

Re: Valkyrie 616 help?

Thor: Ragnarok didn’t show Thor, Loki, Bruce, Hela, Heimdall ( continues to rattle off the entire cast list ) or Cousin Carlo to be bisexual, heterosexual, homosexual, or asexual. It didn’t depict sexual or romantic relationships between anyone in the cast. The closest we got was a throwaway joke a...

Re: Valkyrie 616 help?

I would point out that Thor: Ragnarok didn't show her NOT to be bisexual either. They showed a character not defined her sexual preferences. That said, a few minutes of internet research say Fearless Defenders #1, from 2013 is where this detail was defined. Yeah I remember Riggs taking a shot and k...

Valkyrie 616 help?

I have a question concerning Valkyrie 616 I often see comments asserting Val is bi-sexual (some even going so far as to call out Thor: Ragnarok for not showing her to be so) yet I've never seen her in a relationship with a woman. I know Annabelle Riggs kissed Val in the Fearless Defenders title but ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Jessica Jones! Chemistro! The Purple Man!)

While the insane murderous villains will always have a place (the stories they appear can be great as long as there's significant gaps between them) most of the villains I actually like are those that are not 'pure evil', they see themselves as professional criminals, they're not insane, they're not...

Re: Macyn's Golden Gloves Gym(or,Intresting ways to Characterize fighting styles!)

A reputable school should also have no problem with you asking to observe a session or two. That alone should be enough to alert you to any “Woo Peddlers.” Yes, lots of martial arts have a metaphysical component, especially the very traditional Chinese ones... But if they start blathering on about ...

Re: Macyn's Golden Gloves Gym(or,Intresting ways to Characterize fighting styles!)

Thanks. Are there sites you can visit that tell you if an instructor is genuine or not? Local review sites are a good place to go. Otherwise most legitimate sports have national associations that will list accredited clubs or trainers. You might have to look at the state level if you're in the USA,...

Re: Macyn's Golden Gloves Gym(or,Intresting ways to Characterize fighting styles!)

Have you had any personal experience of Aikido, I always thought it 'looked cool' when I was a kid (and yes those early Steven Seagal movies were awesome) but any demo video I've seen on YouTube is just full of the 'This is crap, it's all fake, it's nothing compared to MMA etc.) type comments, it s...
