Re: Jab's Builds! (Mizuki! Kusaregedo! Gaoh! Zankuro! Moon Knight Builds!)

Doug Moench is on record as stating that Moon Knight was meant to be the Shadow, not Batman. Moench subbed in Egypt for the Far East, but Frenchie and Marlene are straight out of the pulp handbook for supporting characters, and the multiple aliases recall the Shadow's use of Kent Allard or Lamont C...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Mizuki! Kusaregedo! Gaoh! Zankuro! Moon Knight Builds!)

Doug Moench is on record as stating that Moon Knight was meant to be the Shadow, not Batman. I definitely relate to Doug Moench's love of pulp stuff and love his work on Shang Chi, but he can go a little overboard at times. He wrote the God awful "Act of God" Elseworld that stripped all superhumans...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Mizuki! Kusaregedo! Gaoh! Zankuro! Moon Knight Builds!)

I've also got to agree with Moon Knight having an awesome look, and would probably pin his lack of success on a lack of a consistent personality and tone. Once they gave him a multiple personality disorder, writers basically latched onto that as an excuse to have him do whatever they wanted, up to a...

Re: My LEGO Stuff

Did you find pieces that had the red legs and yellow boots and red and yellow arms? Yeah, I had to get a little creative there, and I almost hate to say how I managed it to avoid ruining the illusion, buuuuuuttttt. . . . Basically the arms are taken from a Bart Simpson LEGO figure, who is wearing a...

Re: My LEGO Stuff

Nicely done, although the double cape seem a bit overkill. Thanks! As for the cape, a lot of modern LEGO figures have those kinds of accessories to really capture the flavor of the character, such as Dr. Strange: https://image.smythstoys.com/original/desktop/163764_13.jpg I figure I could at least ...

My LEGO Stuff

So one of the nerdier things I collect is LEGOs. Like, a LOT of LEGOs. I'm working on a pretty big collection, which sites like Brick Owl is helping with. Or enabling, depending on whether you consider this a hobby or an addiction. In any case, one thing my collection was lacking was a DC Comics Cap...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

How did a question about whether you liked or did not like the Captain Marvel/Shazam trailer lead to the diversity of the human species? You’ve contracted “Jab’s Disease”, which creates off-topic rants through associated remarks :). Is there a cure? Ointment?? Pill? Haha. There is the Ares Surgical...

Re: Favorite Bad Movie and why

What is and isn't a bad movie for me is kind of warped, since I enjoy everything from old film serials to 50s B-movies to films of the modern era. I also watched a LOT of Mystery Science Theater 3000, so a lot of bad movies I might have otherwise seen on my own have these three funny guys making fun...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

I was rewatching the trailer, and I noticed a few things about the costume. 1) Levi's cape is not as long as nu-Shazam's cape is in the comics, though it isn't as short as Captain Marvel's The overall cape length is close to a lot of depictions of Cap's cape, though it's exact length is never reall...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

I am still confused on how we got off topic to begin with? Captain Marvel =diversity in the human species?? :shock: haha. Batgirl "corrected" one of my posts by swapping out Static with Blue Beetle and replaced "black" with "brown", which apparently set Chris off. Race is apparently a hot button to...

Re: Name for a character

Iron Curtain? Russian origin, implies both rigidity, but also something that can be swept aside, so something both strong yet flexible?

Cheshire? Cat that could alter it's appearance, making parts of its body disappear, which has a cat theme and some implied form shifting?

Dude, why fight? You take Charlotte, I'm cool with Iroha, less competition for either.
