Re: Jab’s Builds! (Batman Beyond! Inque! Blight! Superman!)

I mostly agree though I feel like Superman talking to those kids at the start of Justice League was the MOST Superman thing in the DCEU. Oh I agree. I even like the explanation for the S shield. It's just the fact Supes couldn't answer "what do you like most about Earth". It's likely they meant it ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ra's al-Ghul! Batman Beyond! Inque! Blight!)

I'm a broken record about this, but to my mind, all of Superman's problems have nothing to do with his personality, his powers, his villains or his supporting cast. Personality wise, Superman is a paragon, a sincerely good person very much like Captain America. But where Steve's heroism is filtered ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Triax & The NGR! Gypsies! Triax Gear!)

Phase World was a pretty decent Space Opera setting for RIFTS, and would actually fit in well in a generic superhero game. It borrowed a lot from other sci-fi/comics settings, but they felt more like homages than rip-offs and had their own unique ideas as well. Cosmo-Knights were the Green Lantern/S...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Roxy Rocket! Batgirl! Ra's al-Ghul! Batman Beyond!)

Ra's al-Ghul is a Batman villain that made it clear that Bruce was not just a guy who beat up thugs stealing TVs. While Bruce was based in Gotham, he was more than capable of dealing with "end of the world" scope Bond villains, with Ra's being basically Middle Eastern Fu Manchu. He wasn't just some ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Robin! Phantasm! Roxy Rocket! Bane! Batgirl!)

Hey- time for some random "Past Remarks", from my 2011 (JESUS that was a long time ago) "DCAU" set: Ares: I'd actually put Superman: The Animated Series over Justice League and Justice League Unlimited by a margin, being above those shows but below Batman:TAS. Paul Dini was involved in the Superman...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Scarecrow! Riddler! Robin! Phantasm! Roxy Rocket!)

Firefly is one of the few Batman:TAS villains who was used way more effectively in The Batman . First, he looked a lot cooler: http://images2.fanpop.com/image/photos/9800000/FireFly-batman-villains-9864213-559-450.jpg Secondly, he had a bit more of a personality, still being a pyromaniac, but also a...

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

Is anyone reading the current Justice League series? I found a YouTube video on some of the current run, and it just sounds like DC basically has more a pile up of crossover events happening at once. You've got Doomsday Clock, which is establishing the current DCU as screwed over by Dr. Manhattan an...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Catwoman! The Joker! Harley Quinn! Poison Ivy!)

You know, when they brought back Batman:TAS following the success of Superman for the New Batman Adventures, they really screwed up a lot of solid character designs. Commissioner Gordon, the Joker, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, the Riddler, Bane, Mr. Freeze, even Batman and Robin were a step down. The only ...

Magic the Gathering Anime?

Apparently now that the Russo Brothers are done with the MCU, they're partnering with Netflix to do an Anime based on the Magic: The Gathering tabletop cardgame.

Re: DC Comics - Heroes in Crisis & Doomsday Clock = Why so serious?

It's not like this is the first time Superman's importance has been hinted at. Multiple Legion of Superheroes stories have shown the far future more or less revolves around his influence. I never said it was the first time, only that it's stupid for a number of reasons. I tend to remark on it every...
