Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

I think my favorite Exiles storyline was the "Skrull Earth" one, where we got an interesting take on an alien invasion. Most of the time these invasions happen in the 20th/21st centuries, when we've got either technology or superheroes to help even the odds. Here, the alien invasion happens in the 1...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

You know, one thing about seeing the 90s Flash in action is that it's got me watching the 90s TV series again. And as one of the first attempts to do a serious superhero tv series in a while, it's actually a lot of fun and not bad. It's more Street Level, giving it kind of a Netflix Defenders type f...

Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

I really liked the reasoning of why Blink was chosen to lead the Exiles, over more experienced heroes like Mimic (who had actually lead the X-Men). Every other member of the Exiles came from a "standard" alternate Marvel Earth, where the differences from the mainstream Earth were relatively minor. I...

Re: J-Mart: Overwatch - Winston, Reaper, Reinhardt, Brigitte, Doomfist

Aw, thanks for the kind words, Thorp, they're very appreciated. And I'm glad you liked the setting suggestions. :D Reinhardt is definitely my favorite Overwatch character, and I agree that "Honor and Glory" is by far my favorite of the animated shorts. If nothing else, it showcases the power of cont...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

Worst moment of politics in Supergirl for me was during the Bridal Shower for Maggie and Alex. Her father shows up and warns her about acceptance. That part was good. Saying "they want to build a wall..." Where did that come from ? At the time, Earth 38 had an alien for a President who was working ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Onaga! Ferra/Torr! Erron Black! D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn!)

Onyx Path put out a sourcebook covering movie slashers titled, appropriately enough, Slasher. It was a very fun read. Was that the one that was part of the "Hunters" series, involving humans who combatted the various occult branches like vampires, werewolves, etc? Indeed it is—-Hunter: The Vigil. P...

Re: J-Mart: The Eradicator, Cyborg Superman, Bizarro, Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Ham

Also, I might not be posting their backgrounds yet as I a trying to figure out where the Overwatch lore fits but I think I see them fitting in with my GI Joe stuff. I could see Talon as an offshoot of Cobra. Hmmmm...the Kobra cult should be an offshoot, too... The way I handle the Cobra/Kobra thing...

I did roll my eyes during the Superigirl part of Part 1 when Lois brings up the wage gap out of nowhere.

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

Been a while since anyone posted in here, and to be honest, my interest in the CW-verse kind of waned after a while. I loved the Flash, but after a while it just got a little too goofy with the time travel, a little too Soap Opera with all of the relationship melodrama, too many odd choices, so on a...

Wow. From this I can only assume the artist was given the instruction of "People have been complaining about J'onn's new outfit. Show them how much worse it could be."

Re: Jab’s Builds (Quan Chi! Shinnok! Onaga! Ferra/Torr! Erron Black!)

Apparently Netherrealm has a very "waste not, want not" policy when it comes to their properties, because it seems like they've used names and concepts from Mortal Kombat Conquest and brought them over to their main game series. D'Vorah was supposedly inspired by this REALLY stupid Bee Woman plot fr...

Re: First M&M 3e character build

Hey there! Welcome to our little corner of the internet. I'm looking forward to these builds. The MC2 setting was something that I feel didn't get nearly enough exposure, as it felt like a decent progression of the mid-90s Marvel and sort of Tom DeFalco's own playground. It actually felt more like c...
