Re: Jab’s Builds (Magneto! Morgan Le Fay! Jim Jaspers! Fury!)

It's also kind of sad how little Starlin thought of She-Hulk. I may be letting his reputation poison my thoughts unfairly, but I generally don't expect Starlin to think very highly of any character he didn't make himself. I think it depends on whether or not Starlin "adopted" the character or not a...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Magneto! Morgan Le Fay! Jim Jaspers! Fury!)

I remember Maxam, given my brother was an Adam Warlock and Infinite Watch fan. It's kind of a shame no one did anything with him, because he was the first real Class 100 African American in Marvel. The outfit was a bit generic, but they could have done something with him. It'd be easy enough to brin...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Moira MacTaggert! Magneto! Morgan Le Fay! Mindworm!)

Hah- one of my random "buy random Two-In-One comics" hauls turned out pretty good, as I now have the issue where The Sandman starts his reformation. It's actually pretty great, though Tom DeFalco writes some unusual dialogue for a mug like the Sandman- a bit too wordy. We start off with Sandy and H...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

I always wondered how Morgan Le Fey would stack up against Amora the Enchantress. Amora is not really that POWERFUL- she's more manipulative. Morgan can take on an entire Avengers team and possibly win. She's on another level entirely. Also, lol- your comment can be taken the wrong way. The SEXY wr...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

Magneto was once turned into a child and then returned to adulthood at a younger age than he originally was, I think that's how they explain his age. Similarly Professor X consciousness was transferred to a cloned body and Punisher has been mystically re-set to his physical prime at least twice. Wo...

Re: J-Mart: PCs - Kingpin, Joker, Bane, Hulk x2, Harry Dresden, X-Men

Always great to see a Harry Dresden build. Butcher needs to either hurry up with the next book or release some more side story adventures, because I need my fix.

Also love the Cyclops build, it's way past time they brought him back to form instead of the unhinged radical he'd become.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

If Magneto is a boy in WWII, then by 2019 he’d be pretty darn elderly. Eventually, it’ll be required something happening to explain Magneto’s never-ending lifespan. That’s the problem for Marvel, why it needs a reboot—-if it all happened ‘ten years ago’, then Mags is easily pushing a hundred, by no...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

By the way Jab, given your Mortal Kombat builds weren't all that long ago, I'm curious if you've been paying any attention to MK 11 that's coming out.

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Splugorth! Conservator! Slaver!)

The Splugorth Slaver should have been higher up in the Splugorth pecking order based solely on the visual alone. Seriously, why weren't THESE GUYS the High Lords, going around enforcing the boss' will their own Female Furies?

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

Ah, the poor Mindless Ones. Possibly the biggest case of "depending on the writer" ever. From what I remember, they were generally portrayed as a big deal in the 60s and 70s. I believe Dr. Strange actually beat Dormammu once by getting Dormy to accidentally weaken the barrier between his dimension a...

OH MY GOD YOU PEOPLE Once again, you have all sorely, SORELY let me down. I was reading my backlog of comic books from the local shop, and you know what I read? Fantastic Four #5 .

Re: Jab’s Builds (Namora! Moira MacTaggert! Magneto!)

I think that, while Dr. Doom is my favorite comic villain of all time (with Darth Vader being my favorite fictional villain period), I have to agree that a Magneto done right is a more complex and sympathetic character than Victor. Unfortunately, in some ways Magneto is too sympathetic, because you'...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

Well, it sounds like the folks who actually went see Shazam thought it was fun. It's got very good reviews over on Rotten Tomatoes and most people I've seen talk about it enjoyed it. But as catsi would put it , "positive reviews or not and all praising aside", it isn't really doing that well at the ...
