Re: Jab’s Builds! (Future Man! Futurist! The Drug Lords! Darkhawk!)

I'm a sucker for Darkhawk, mostly because I really loved the design, but I can see how the character was pretty much tossed around from the start. Darkhawk is a good example of a simple but awesome character design basically falling to Donna Troy syndrome. I actually thought the original origin for...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Future Man! Futurist! The Drug Lords! Darkhawk!)

Darkhawk is a good example of a simple but awesome character design basically falling to Donna Troy syndrome. I actually thought the original origin for Darkhawk worked perfectly fine. An intergalactic crime boss wanted an elite group of individuals that could be replaceable at a moments notice, so ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (The Four Horsemen! Egyptian Gods! Phoenixi!)

Rifts: Africa is just a mess of a book, something that should have been broken up into multiple books and each book then fleshed out properly. The Four Horsemen of the Apocylpse really should have been it's own book, similar to the Juicer Uprising book, possibly a Source Book or Conversion Book abo...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Soldiers of Misfortune! Heavy Mettle! Slapstick Foes!)

Slapstick showcases that one of the most important qualifications for writing a comedy themed book is actually being funny. Then again, like I mentioned earlier, I actually found a semi-recent (2016?) Slapstick mini-series that had a couple of chuckle moments that were ruined by how mean-spirited th...

Re: New Guy: The First New Meme of 2020

I agree. It's just so refreshing to see something positive come out of something negative, when it seems like the reverse happens far more on the internet. Maybe it's a sign 2020 will be the start of a better decade. I especially like the one that showed how New Guy would have handled interacting wi...

I love how the scientist who can build a Time Travel Device is also built like Brock Lesnar.
This actually wouldn't be that bad of a basic design for a Cosmo-Knight.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Well, I like the re-design for Night Thrasher and that both Rage and Firestar are in slightly modified versions of their original outfits. Wish they'd give Speedball back his original look too.

Apart from that . . . there's a whole lot of NOPE! going on there.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Turbo! Hindsight! Slapstick! Timeslip! Ultra Girl!)

It would have been a funny little inside joke in the Marvel VS Capcom games featuring Nova and Capcom's Megaman for Nova to mention that he remembers Megaman looking different. I actually have the comic featuring the poor dope, and his story is actually extremely sad. He was just some guy who had an...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Turbo! Hindsight! Slapstick! Timeslip! Ultra Girl!)

"Fat, out of shape guy who uses the power to cure disease to fight crime" is up there with "guy who invents gun that turns things to gold and uses it to rob banks" in the Picking the Wrong Occupation category. Believe it or not, Microbe is actually worse because the guy that created Chemistro (who ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Turbo! Hindsight! Slapstick! Timeslip! Ultra Girl!)

Microbe and Debrii are pretty much an example of why that New Warriors book was always going to fail, along with the weird art, weird character designs (I hate the trenchcoat/mask they gave Thrash and the generic outfit they gave Speedball), etc. Microbe is one of those "stupid powers the writer wan...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Turbo! Hindsight! Slapstick! Timeslip! Ultra Girl!)

Hindsight Lad kind of makes sense to me, but that might also be because I remember growing up with the TMNT cartoon having some kids who'd discovered the turtles, and kind of forced themselves into being (largely incompetent) sidekicks who ran around with bandannas and trash can lids strapped to th...
