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.

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

I'm probably going to just turn this post into my genera "this is a cool thread from ATT" post.

Charles Phipps Merged DC/Marvel Universe thread had a lot of fun ideas.

And here's my old Mean Streets of Magic thread that I might need to revisit someday.

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

The thread I'm looking for is kind of similar to this thread by Kreuzritter , which has a lot of solid ideas in and of itself. In that thread I'm looking for I posted up some ideas regarding Centurion, Protonik, Sentinel and Vanguard, who opperated as that world's "Big Four", being the Superman anal...

Hey folks. Looking for some help from the long time members of the community that have been here since the Atomic Think Tank days. For those not in the know, The Atomic Think Tank was where this community really got its start, before the forums moved to Roninarmy and then a lot of us moved over here...

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

Oh and Carol Danvers is actually half Kree (because a male having a role in her origin, even an alien male, is apparently sexist :roll: ) I rarely have any interest in posting here at all and usually only turn up to check out some of the frankly bizarre statements on display any more, but...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Mother Gothel! Cassandra! Varian! Wreck-It Ralph!)

What's especially funny about Wreck-It Ralph is how much of a lie the trailer is. It paints the picture of it being some big video game crossover, where the actual appearances of other characters is incredibly brief. As Jab has mentioned, the scenes with the other Disney properties is likewise going...
