Re: Jab’s Builds (Elena! FROZEN!!! Anna! Kristoff! Olaf! Marshmallow!)

It's not as bad as it could be. At Lucca 2016 3 cosplayers out of 4 were there as movie Harley Quinn. It was terrifying. The Harley Quinn thing is kind of a conundrum for me. I mean, I understand the appeal on some level: it's a relatively simple outfit, you don't need crazy proportions for the cha...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Wreck-It Ralph! Turbo! Sofia & Elena! FROZEN!!!)

Part of me wants to encourage you guys to stop before you crush Jab's soul.

The rest of me is cackling both evilly and loudly.

Re: Superheroes with unique ability sets

The ability to detect that one is a comic book character, used to be VERY unique when it was Ambush Bug. Became less unique when She-Hulk started doing it. Now Deadpool does it, and everyone thinks it's a new thing. Ambush Bug, She-Hulk, Animal Man, Deadpool, Gwenpool are all comics versions, while...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Wreck-It Ralph! Turbo! Sofia & Elena! FROZEN!!!)

Haha, oh Lord, we knew this was coming. I remember how it took me forever to actually see Frozen, and pretty much every other time I interacted with Jab, he'd ask me "Have you seen Frozen yet?" Which as the above demonstrates, is actually Jab using a modicum of self-control and not asking me every ...

Re: Setting Help - Metaphysics of Superpowers

So I finally think I've figured out how I'm going to handle superpowers in my settings, and actually try to have at least a loose pseudo-science explanation for how the abilities work. I'm going with a variant of the Mythology option I mentioned above. Essentially, this setting will require there to...

Re: Netflix Iron Fist Cancelled

Luke Cage just got cancelled as well. Maybe they'll do a Heroes for Hire series? Or is this the end of the Netflix Marvel franchises?

Re: New Spider-Man game for the Ps4

One aspect of the game that is admitted a disappointment for me in some respects is Mary Jane. Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad that MJ is in the game and I'm completely in the same boat as Stan Lee's cameo in the game when he says "You two were always my favorite couple". But some of the things the...

Re: Superheroes with unique ability sets

Does someone like Maggot count? he's not really a superhero but his abilities are pretty unique(ly weird) That would definitely count. I'd also say that, while Bricks themselves are probably amongst the most common powerset in comics, the Hulk's "madder / stronger" factor is pretty unique to him as...

Re: New Spider-Man game for the Ps4

So I've been having a "movie" version of the game playing as background noise while I work, and I've got to say, this thing is very well done. I can't speak to the gameplay aspect (which looks great save for the occasional "human sidekick stealth missions"), but the story is engaging, the voice acti...

Superheroes with unique ability sets

So I was thinking about random nonsense, as I often do, and I started thinking about superpowers, superheroes, and about how some superheroes are more unique than others. Like, you can name dozens of bricks, flying bricks, speedsters, mystics, telepaths and the like, but there's some people with rea...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

It's never a good sign when somebody approaches a show or movie with the thought of "I'm going to leave my mark on this" instead of "I'm going to try to make the best show I can" To me, that's emblematic of a large problem with the modern comic industry, perhaps the largest part. I know I've said t...

Re: Help finding an old topic from the Atomic Think Tank

You know, going through those old threads reminds me of how much more active I use to be on the creative side of things. Most of my creative energies these days is on that RPG system I'm hoping to Kickstart, but I need to start posting some more home brew stuff on here.
