Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

Alright, so that's at least one person interested. My line, no hero team as of yet: • Captain Marvel (Billy Batson, DC Comics) • Kamen Rider Kuuga (Yusuke Godai,Kamen Rider) • Wuji Chang (Heaven's Sword & Dragon's Saber) • Honey Lemon (Big Hero 6 - The Animated Series) • Valkyrie (Vanessa Ashe, Par...

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

I remember that. Dan DiDio went on a tirade about how it was wrong for superheroes to be married and happy, making it almost a declaration of war against the notion of marriage. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/books/news/batwoman-cant-have-lesbian-wedding-because-heroes-shouldnt-hav...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

I always felt bad for El Dorado. The Super Friends multi-cultural characters were well-intentioned but often hilariously stereotypical attempts to add some diversity to the team (showing that folks were conscious about it even in the 70s). And its not like any of them were bad, per say. They just ne...

Re: J-Mart: Winter Soldier, Odin, Harry Dresden

That was something Harry picked up in Changes, but Thorp mentioned he hadn't really gotten into the latest books, which likely includes Changes, Ghost Story, Cold Days and Skin Game, along with Brief Cases. He also doesn't have the Soul Fire he picked up in Small Favor, so I imagine this is meant to...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

You specifically named the Batman, Buffy, Captain Marvel, and the Hulk in your examples. I figured Cassandra was on broadly on par with Bruce; She a better fighter and better at stealth, he’s better at everything else. Liv Moore is on par with a Buffy‘verse vampire; weaker when not “full on zombie,...

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

And I just found out that Kitty Pryde decided NOT to go through with her marriage to Colossus, and instead Gambit and Rogue got married instead. Its funny, but now the comic feels like one of those posters where if you stare at it long enough you see something? Because the more I look at this, the m...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

Okay, I think there's some confusion with the Weight Class system I set up, and really, it might have been better not to include something like that. The idea was that Heavyweights are the "big gun" heroes, your Superman, Thor, Godzilla, Son Goku types who are the "top tiers" of their respective set...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

Now this i can work with! Do we put our characters up here or elsewhere Ares? I'll probably create a thread specifically for the characters when I get home. Holy "Now he tells me!", Batman! :shock: Heh, sorry. No worries tho, I've already transferred Cap and Firebird over there, if you want to fini...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

I was gladdened when my five-year old niece, the one who knows that Boba Fett really loves Darth Vader, started whining "but how can Darth Maul be alive?!" What? She didn't read the novels, comics, and short-story anthologies or watch three different television series and a straight-to-dvd animated...
