Re: Hello again from JoshuaDunlow

Well, as the guy that technically owns this little sandbox, let me say this: You are not wasting space here. I made this place so that everyone from the old forums who wanted a place away from any drama and bad feelings could have that place here. Everyone is welcome here, so long as everyone is tre...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

Annihilation was a mixed bag for me. It did some cool things like breaking out some old toys, cleaning them up and making them fun, introducing some new concepts, fleshing out the Marvel space scene a bit, made Annihilus a relevant villain again, etc. But there was just a lot of "board clearing" an...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

It's kind of weird how both the Nova Corps and Brainiac both have three circles connected by lines as their symbol. With Nova, it was originally 3 stars linked together, but since Annihilation it's become three circles that make a V pattern. While Brainiac makes more of an A shape. Note to self: In ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

...why didn’t they just imbue these guys with Nova powers? The various DC Lantern Corps have superpowrred ringslingers...so, why not Xandar? It's honestly a shame the Nova Corps and Space Knights aren't used more often like the Green Lantern analogues they should be. The Nova Corps should be a bunc...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

I'm a bit stunned you'd have a negative reaction to Annihilation - I figured it would have been everything you love about comics- taking stuff out of the sandbox and making them cool again. I mean, the purpose of that crossover was more or less to reignite a dormant part of the Marvel Universe (the...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

-Powerhouse is a Flying Brick I've actually got a few issues with Powerhouse, and he was just a Brick (not a Flying one). He generally had to physically touch whatever it was he was draining to power himself up, and he was a pretty effective grappler as a result. However, I've read somewhere that h...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Crystar! Cammi! Conan! Captain Universe!)

Minor correction, but the Champions of Xandar were actually killed off long before Annihilation. See, Annihilation was actually the SECOND time Xandar had been blown up. The first time they were destroyed by Nebula during the 80s, wiping out the Champions of Xandar and the Nova Corps in one move. Al...

Re: RIP Stan Lee

I just saw this and was coming to post something. I hardly know what to say about a man responsible for so many of my good memories.

Well, one thing does come to mind.

Excelsior.

Ever upward, Stan. Ever upward.

Re: 190 - Spider-Man (Peter Parker)

In my rare combination of time and building motivation, I did some tweaks to some existing builds. After watching a lot of Spidey stuff lately, I tweaked my "main" Spidey to be a little more in line with the Spider-Man from the PS4 games, which is fantastic. One thing I am toying with is his Web Sw...
