Re: Jab's Builds! (Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad! Trainees! Wildfire!)

Haha, Wildfire being reduced to pleading sounds hilarious, especially given how prideful he normally acts around others (he's only unguarded around the rookies he trains, really). I can just imagine Brainy getting agitated about it, finally seeing Drake off, only to have Dawny knock on his door " B...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad! Trainees! Wildfire!)

Guys, Jab asked that we sideline the side-topics for today, given he's hoping for discussion about his favorite Legionnaires. Even beyond common courtesy, its his thread, he can ask for such things.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad! Trainees! Wildfire!)

Wildfire was a solid addition to the Legion, adding a very distinct personality and look to the team, as well as a new powerhouse to the team who wasn't just another flavor of Kryptonian/Daxamite. I never could figure out what the "Anti-Energy" descriptor his powers had was suppose to mean. Wouldn't...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Brainiac 5! White Witch! Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad!)

There’s nothing inherently wrong with the “Wearing A Flag As Your Costume” trope — everyone loves Captain America, Captain Britain, Vindicator, etc. Nor is their anything wrong with “My Cultural Traditions Dialed To 11 Are My Superpower” trope — Silver Samurai is cool, Knight and Squire are cool, e...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Brainiac 5! White Witch! Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad!)

I honestly would rather have the stereotype-based powered ethnic heroes, like Dragonmage and Arabian Knight, than the industry’s current trend of “diverse” heroes where the only thing that apparently matters to the writer is showing that the character isn’t a cishetero White European-American. The ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Brainiac 5! White Witch! Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad!)

Dragonmade and Harmonia demonstrate sort of the misguided notions some writers have with introducing minority characters. It clearly comes from a good place of "Well, why SHOULDN'T their be a 100% Asian character in the Legion?", to which the answer is "There totally should be". Unfortunately, when ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Brainiac 5! White Witch! Kinetix! Supergirl! Element Lad!)

I remember her as being more flirty than grumpy, but that's the only memory I have of her, so maybe not. (Also that's a name up there with the Mandarin for unintended silliness.) No, flirty was her general portrayal, along with her weird way of speaking and a mild form of Wolverine-style berserker ...

Re: J-Mart: LADIES WEEK! Warrior Woman, Sin, Power Princess, Lady Shiva, Lady Vic

Alas, J-Mart customers, LADIES' WEEK will be cut short. My father, the Odinthorpe, fell from his throne and broke his leg. Thus, I must traverse the Rainbow Bridge to Asgard Missouri to give aid. If you're keeping track, that's my dad breaking his right leg in April just as my wife starts to be abl...

Re: J-Mart: The Red Skull, Crossbones, Arnim Zola, Baron Blitzkrieg

The DC Heroes sourcebook World at War was great with Blitzkrieg writing All Star Squadron "opinions" on heroes. "Nazi File:Mister America's greatest ability is unmatched mastery of the whip. " "Blitzkrieg: And a squirrel's greatest ability is its unmatched mastery of finding nuts!" :lol: I remember...

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

ANTIFA claims to be a collection of anti-fascist militant groups, but in practice are a bunch of spoiled college-age kids in masks to wear masks, attend rallies, and cause lots of damage to people and property. The FBI considers them a group of domestic terrorists, but even that gives them too much...

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

So, if I'm understanding what I just heard, Ta-Nehisi Coates (someone I already have a few issues with) is going to be writing Captain America. And will apparently be having Captain America side with an ANTIFA stand-in?

Re: Jab's Builds! (Thunder! Brainiac 5! White Witch! Kinetix! Supergirl!)

Was there another yellow legion character called Telepath? Or was that an earlier form of Tellus? That character was from L.E.G.I.O.N., the weird idea someone had over at DC. Basically it was DC's version of what Marvel did with Guardians of the Galaxy, having an earlier Guardians team suddenly app...
