Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

So I listen to Doc Savage audiobooks while I exercise, and I came across a moment that I feel needs sharing. It comes from the following novel: https://tse4.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.31nks_D9xtVfSsqYdAluDgHaLJ In it, Doc Savage is facing an ancient Mongolian conqueror who was entombed in a cave of ice b...

Your Favorite Crossovers - Tabletop RPG edition

So yeah, crossover junkie Ares decided to throw this in here as well. I'd actually decided against this initially, since to my knowledge RPG crossovers are about the only thing more rare than cartoon crossovers. Now, crossovers within a single company aren't unheard of. Dungeons and Dragons had long...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Alien & Predator! Kratos! The Exiles! Blink!)

he beat Namora and Holocaust in the second arc where he showed up. just a minor nitpick I'm surprised you didn't mention his fight with Juggernaut i don’t remember that ever happening. When was that? It was during King Hyperions time with the Thunderbolts. Juggy was depowered a bit and Hype was dom...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Alien & Predator! Kratos! The Exiles! Blink!)

Man, the Exiles had some REALLY boring and generic outfits. A really good clue of how disposable everyone was.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Alien & Predator! Kratos! The Exiles! Blink!)

Mimic was far and away my favorite Exiles character, so naturally I was annoyed when they killed him off permanently as well. For whatever reason I always kind of liked the 616 Mimic, or at least stories involving him, and its kind of a shame they can never do anything with the guy. Exiles Mimic was...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I guess this count for both franchises ;) https://www.echoesofthemultiverse.com/download/file.php?id=45 While Levi's outfit looks better than the Nu-52 version, I still cringe a little whenever I see it. Similarly, Larson's outfit is just too busy for my tastes. Both of them just scream "trying too...

Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

I think my favorite Exiles storyline was the "Skrull Earth" one, where we got an interesting take on an alien invasion. Most of the time these invasions happen in the 20th/21st centuries, when we've got either technology or superheroes to help even the odds. Here, the alien invasion happens in the 1...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

You know, one thing about seeing the 90s Flash in action is that it's got me watching the 90s TV series again. And as one of the first attempts to do a serious superhero tv series in a while, it's actually a lot of fun and not bad. It's more Street Level, giving it kind of a Netflix Defenders type f...

Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

I really liked the reasoning of why Blink was chosen to lead the Exiles, over more experienced heroes like Mimic (who had actually lead the X-Men). Every other member of the Exiles came from a "standard" alternate Marvel Earth, where the differences from the mainstream Earth were relatively minor. I...

Re: J-Mart: Overwatch - Winston, Reaper, Reinhardt, Brigitte, Doomfist

Aw, thanks for the kind words, Thorp, they're very appreciated. And I'm glad you liked the setting suggestions. :D Reinhardt is definitely my favorite Overwatch character, and I agree that "Honor and Glory" is by far my favorite of the animated shorts. If nothing else, it showcases the power of cont...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

Worst moment of politics in Supergirl for me was during the Bridal Shower for Maggie and Alex. Her father shows up and warns her about acceptance. That part was good. Saying "they want to build a wall..." Where did that come from ? At the time, Earth 38 had an alien for a President who was working ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Onaga! Ferra/Torr! Erron Black! D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn!)

Onyx Path put out a sourcebook covering movie slashers titled, appropriately enough, Slasher. It was a very fun read. Was that the one that was part of the "Hunters" series, involving humans who combatted the various occult branches like vampires, werewolves, etc? Indeed it is—-Hunter: The Vigil. P...

Re: J-Mart: The Eradicator, Cyborg Superman, Bizarro, Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Ham

Also, I might not be posting their backgrounds yet as I a trying to figure out where the Overwatch lore fits but I think I see them fitting in with my GI Joe stuff. I could see Talon as an offshoot of Cobra. Hmmmm...the Kobra cult should be an offshoot, too... The way I handle the Cobra/Kobra thing...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

I did roll my eyes during the Superigirl part of Part 1 when Lois brings up the wage gap out of nowhere.
