Re: Delvers

-Delvers debuted in 3rd Edition, so don't have the justification for "WTF?" like other Abberations do- they're just a bizarre mish-mash of traits with an appearance that makes no sense (what's with the giant lips in front, and the top-mouth thing?). They're distinctly odd enough that this becomes t...

Hyperboreans and vril I totally stole from Hellboy, although I think Mike Mignola got those from Madame Blavatsky or some other theosophist.
Not quite, vril was the invention of author Edward Bulwer-Lytton, who died before theosophy really got going.

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - The Sentinels (updated)! Meta-4! The Algernon Files

Okay, as you may have noticed I'm not exactly putting these out as quickly as I'd like, and I'm thinking that once I get done the last three in this series I'm going to be taking a sabbatical away from this thread to work on some other stuff. I'll still be updating the setting thread every month or ...

Apparently, he had no living family.

Yes, I'm inclined to agree.

EDIT: Except that it appears that I was misinformed, and his brother and nephew (the younger Steve Ditko) are still alive.

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 Setting Detail

Does Dracula somehow have the three under his sway? Unlikely, given their nature, but curious because traditionally Vlad has three "brides". According to the Patriot's report, the Herald and the Knight did not appear to have been vampirized. Annnnnd that's all I'm going to say on the subject for no...

Flash Thompson…is dead. I refuse to accept that.
No one is ever permanently dead except the Waynes. On the other hand, that is its own problem.

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Toad! Tuatara! Topaz! Thunderbird! Tana Nile!)

I suspect the reason he never showed up again is that his writer, Gary Barnum, only did a double handful of stories for Marvel, most of which were not terribly memorable annuals. He was apparently an editor before he was a writer.
