Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jessica Cruz! Star Boy! The Fatal Five! Visionaries!)

Just one of those weird things in fiction where a character can turn into one of the most feared predators on the planet and still be considered useless. Thing is, given most civilizations need to be near a reliable source of water to live, Virulina's tactics should really have involved trying to ge...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jessica Cruz! Star Boy! The Fatal Five! Visionaries!)

Witterquick was kind of interesting to me as a kid, since between the blonde hair, color scheme and speed theme, he was like some fantasy version of the Barry Allen Flash. Lexor was interesting in that he was amusing to torment, but his cowardice and lying nature actually came in useful. He was the ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jessica Cruz! Star Boy! The Fatal Five! Visionaries!)

Behold- the greatest scene in cartoon history: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3YnygkOvC9k Heheh, ahhhh, good times. It was weird initially hearing Cobra Commander and Starscream's voice coming out of this massive, angry ass kicker, but it worked. And honestly, he probably enjoyed the change of pace....

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jessica Cruz! Star Boy! Miss Martian! The Fatal Five!)

The Visionaries in general were a fun concept, and just an example of how full of creativity and energy the 80s were. They got a brief revival recently as part of the shared Hasbro-verse that IDW was putting out, but due to the creative team and some bad decisions, it didn't really go anywhere. Ther...

Ooh! Ooh! Something from the 80s that had either a cartoon or a toyline (or both!)! I can contribute to this!

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

Well, DC Comics just showed they have a sense of humor. They're apparently letting Zoë Quinn write the Batman/Superman book.

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Mountain Giants! Worm Wraith! Dinosaurs!)

Just gotta say, dinosaurs in a western setting is just awesome. Dinosaurs in a post-apocalyptic western setting with mutants, magic, cybernetics and psionics is just metal.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Donkey Kong! Diddy & Dixie Kong! K.Rool! Jessica Cruz!)

The Fatal Five were exceptionally dangerous for such a small group. The Emerald Empress had vast magical energy manipulation, Mano and the Persuader were both capable of destroying practically anything with their respective abilities, with Mano having exceptional speed and reflexes while the Persuad...

And DC just killed her off recently. Though whether it's an actual death or a fake out, we'll see.

Re: batman is the best...

Generally speaking, Gotham is portrayed as being much better than it was prior to Batman's involvement. He did a lot of work to take down organized crime, deal with corrupt politicians and a corrupt police force. And he deals with all of the super criminals that normal cops would be unable to deal w...

Re: Seeking a Review: Height of the Storm

I can't speak for saint_matthew of course, but given the context, I suspect that he's making use of the "criticizing for change" part of social analysis inherent in "critical theory" and, using further context, he's not looking for a superhero-based story which is less about superheroes than about ...

Re: Tiny Supers - Minimalist Supers RPG

And I just got my copy of the book in. I haven't given it a thorough read yet, but it looks good from the flip through I gave it. Though looking at when I originally posted this topic to today, it's a reminder for my own Kickstater projects to try to have a quicker turn out. When I do my own project...

Re: batman is the best...

It depends on the writer. It's similar to how some writers like Morrison and Loeb will treat Superman as the single most powerful character in DC, when you've got Captain Marvel, Captain Atom, Dr. Fate, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Mary Marvel, Icon, Orion, Hal Jordan, Kyl...

No idea what's up with that. Unfortunately my only suggestion would be to try again a little later, or...
