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...

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

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 . Featuring a series of vignettes with Guest Artists and tons of gags. And what did I see in this issue? https://i.pinim...

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 ...

Re: The Hollow Earth Expedition RPG

I was curious, the system is not my style as well.(old Marvel,DC and Dnd) . The setting seemed fun. Savage World isn't really a setting in and of itself, as far as I know. It's more akin to GURPS where it's meant to be a universal system that can be used for various settings. It's been used for gam...

Thoughts on Savage world Rpg?
Seems like a decent enough system with a lot of flexibility, but I'm admittedly more of a fan of Stat + Skill systems where both are solid numbers, rather than Stat = d4, d6, d8, etc. style systems.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Tiger Shark! Orka! Stingray! Namora!)

But yeah, I love the idea of a magical lucha mask that grants powers to its wearers as it's passed down through the generations..which makes me remember Mucha Lucha was a thing (does anyone else remember that show? It sure was weird.) I remember it. It was one of two Lucha Superhero themed kids sho...

Now I'm imagining how awesome a legitimate crossover with El Santo and Spiderman would be. Because luchadores are awesome.
As opposed to this, I assume?
Heh, beat you to it. ;)

Man, Samson vs the Vampire Women would have gone a lot different with Superman. Hmmm, Vampire Controlled Superman vs Samson? There was also that time El Santo teamed up with Ca...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Tiger Shark! Orka! Stingray! Namora!)

As I've said, one thing I'd want to do with my own comic book style setting would be to have the the heroes of nations reflect the heroes in their fiction. So American superheroes are like comic heroes, with some mix of other genres, big melting pot and all of that. Europe is fairly similar to Ameri...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Tattooed Men! Splugorth!)

It was kind of an interesting twist to have the big bads be these Lovecraftian horrors in terms of look and power, but basically be evil corporate CEOs instead of unknowable cosmic entities. But they did mechanically build them as incredibly lazy, just having a ton of MDC and every power ever. But t...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Fathom Five! Tiger Shark! Peak! Stingray!)

I actually liked Force. He had a fun concept of a battlesuit that made use of a versatile gimmick, namely being able to project and shape force fields. He even had a nice little redemption arc and was a substitute Iron Man on several occasions. He got brought back as a hero to be Tony's bodyguard wh...
