Re: J-Mart: Workin' on the store...Testing Spidey/Sportsmaster

Got to say I loved the Sportsmaster vs Spider-Man fight. I've been re-watching a playthrough of the Spider-Man PS4 game, and it and this both cement aspects of why Spidey is such a fun character. He's powerful enough to take on major threats, but not so powerful that just a group of thugs can't give...

Re: Has anyone read Legendlore?

I heard of this really good superhero role-playing game from Green Ronin that works extremely well for a variety of character types which could be adapted to serve the purpose, but I doubt anyone here has heard of it. Because why promote other game systems when we could talk about the most popular ...

Re: Xavier Pendragon

-Unsurprisingly, Xavier is the most expensive Eternal Champion thus far, as his Body Swap power adds up a bunch of different stuff, AND he's got a huge array of other abilities. Seriously, he is INSANELY versatile. How you gain all those powers with SCIENCE AND ALCHEMY is beyond me, but hey- Doctor...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Shadow! Jon Blade! Midknight! Larcen Tyler!)

Larcen's probably my favorite character from the game. He's like something straight out of a Pulp series from the 30s and 40s. And unlike other characters, he could conceivably have the martial arts skills he has (the Pulps were full of 'trained in the Orient' style characters), resulting in this tw...

Re: Has anyone read Legendlore?

From what I've read, the system was going to basically be an adaptation of D&D 5th edition, and serve more like a sourcebook for a setting where the idea of humans traveling between a modern and fantasy is the major conceit. I think for pulling off a more a Modern Characters in a D&D Setting, there'...

Re: Number of superhumans in your worlds

I guess it depends on how superpowers manifest, and what kind of powers. If there are no 'lame' superpowers the way there are in something like My Hero Academia, where every superhuman has the potential to be a superhero, then yeah, 8000 superhumans could be a lot, depending on the setting. From wha...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Kate Bishop! R.A.X.! Jetta Maxx!)

The odd choices for martial arts forms for some characters makes me wonder if the writers were just looking up styles in a book and giving them to whomever. I know at the time it was popular in Street Fighter to try and give the characters real world martial arts forms, but Mortal Kombat largely nev...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

One thing that, in my mind, showcased the mismanagement of the Sequel Trilogy was the insistence that it was the conclusion to "The Skywalker Saga". The idea that they were finishing the story George Lucas started with "A New Hope". Every time someone from Disney referred to it as being part of the ...

Ares have you watched the Mauler critique of the sequel Trilogies? He basically rips each of them apart bit by bit to analyze and discuss them as well as every argument that's used to defend it and is rather funny while doing so.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Kate Bishop! The Young Masters! Eternal Champions!)

I always liked the Eternal Champions games. Even the name is cool. But having fighters from across time and space battle for a chance to fix some great wrong is a wonderful concept, and allows for many unique designs and fighting styles. It's a franchise I wouldn't mind seeing revived, as it had a l...

Re: Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

To me, the Sequel Trilogy had the complete opposite problems to the Prequels. The Prequels were an interesting exploration of the past, showcasing the rise of Palpatine and the fall of Anakin Skywalker. We got fun bits of lore that added context to the original trilogy, showcasing the Jedi and the R...

SNOT (Real Name Unknown)

Jason Aaron & Nick Bradshaw
*facepalm*

Maybe he can team up with Eric Larsen's creations like Backfire, Heavy Flo and Dung.

Yes, those are real characters. Google them at your own risk.

Enchantress was used (poorly) in the War of the Realms.
It's remarkable how Marvel could have an event about this massive war between the Nine Realms, and everything I saw about it filled me with so little "give a shit" that I didn't bother with it.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Hulkling! Iron Lad! Patriot II! Kate Bishop!)

It's sad that for the longest time, the mini-Enchantress here was seen more than the actual Enchantress, who basically vanished following JMS' Thor run.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Hulkling! Iron Lad! Patriot II! Kate Bishop!)

Kate was honestly better off when she was kind of a Swiss-Army Knife that had a bow-and-arrow for ranged combat, escrima batons for general melee fighting, and a sword when things got serious or she needed to cut something. It gave her a bit of her own thing, much like how Roy Harper was better as A...
