Re: Jab's Builds! (The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate! Omni-Man!)

* Heh- posted The Beast, and almost all the comments were about Cyclops. Poor guy :). Well, I DID post him only a year or so ago for my "Defenders" set. Yeah, I think everyone Hank-ed out when that happened, and there's just been too much stupidity in the X-Franchise in the year or so for everyone ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (INVINCIBLE! The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate!)

I like that, Ares. A couple of tweaks to make the Guardians of the Universe the reason for the bug planet to no longer exist (because they have been and will always be the most dickish of the dickish in the universe) and it's pretty workable. ;) I honestly feel bad for the Guardians of the Universe...

Re: Jab's Builds! (INVINCIBLE! The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate!)

Merged U stuff, etc., etc., Viltrumites, Daxamites, Strontians, Jab is cooler and more handsome than me, etc. j/k :P. Putting Invincible in a merged universe produces some interesting questions, as the Viltrumites are a pretty difficult "fit" objectively. Invincible kind of worked as a book the way...

Re: Jab's Builds! (INVINCIBLE! The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate!)

The Evil Invincibles are deadly, but sixteen PL 12s can't end the DC AND Marvel Earth combined the way they could to the "Image Earth" (even with Pitt, Witchblade and others defending it). Did we see Supreme or Mighty Man fighting the Viltrumites? We saw Mighty Man briefly engage the one of the Evi...

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

http://media.comicbook.com/2018/02/avengers-1-2018-1085433.jpeg Fifteen years ago this team would have gotten me excited. Now I just don't care. It's actually kind of depressing how true that statement is for me. An Avengers roster with Steve, Tony and Thor all on it, mainstays like Carol, Jen and ...

The non-red parts of Omni-man's costume - are they supposed to be very light blue, or is the blue just shading on the white?
Light blue, at least in his original outfit.

Re: Jab's Builds! (INVINCIBLE! The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate!)

I tend to agree. I've really struggled with how to integrate Mark and the Invincible-verse into the Thorpocaverse overall over the years. I know I want them there, but it's been hard to figure out how they all fit. I'll have to keep thinking about it, I guess. But I did love the series overall and ...

Re: RPG Settings and Systems you just can't stand.

Another setting I couldn't really stand was DragonLance. I mean, as a generic fantasy setting it was mostly okay, but there was one thing about said setting that really annoyed me: the gods. See, the gods of DragonLance have this very weird idea about balance. They believe in maintaining the balance...

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

Well, Marvel is finally canceling a lot of their low selling books that were being kept around for the sake of identity politics, so that's a good thing. Superman will supposedly be getting his red trunks back, which is also a good thing. Bendis is coming over to DC, which could be good or bad. Ulti...

Re: Jab's Builds! (INVINCIBLE! The Maulers! The Immortal! Dupli-Kate!)

The Mauler Twins were probably one of my favorite parts of the Invincible setting. They just had a very "classic" comic book feel, the kind of thing Grant Morrison would have come up with on his All-Star Superman / JLA / Thunderworld days (as opposed to metafiction nonsense like his Final Crisis stu...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Black Tom! The Beast! Pacific Overlords! INVINCIBLE!)

Right. In addition to the "Now I'm going to not hesitate to kill-WAIT WHAT AM I DOING" moment, that was one of the legitimate moral quandaries of the series. I would be pretty guilt ridden about not saving those people, but I'd also probably have to view it the same way of "going back in time to kil...
