... I dunno, it's okay I guess, but the lack of time travel capabilities is a deal-breaker.

Not the weirdest thing he did in that title, but I'll save that little tidbit for when and if Jab does a series of Sandman builds.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Sivana! Captain Nazi & Nippon! Mr. Mind!)

Was there ever any explanation about where and why Mr Mind appeared on Marvel Earth, er, the Earth of the Marvels, that is? Did he come from a planet of talking telepathic worms? How did he get here (there)? From what I remember, and Ares will be along to correct me shortly, he was from another pla...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Sivana! Captain Nazi & Nippon! Mr. Mind!)

Yeah, so ridiculous. I mean, what's next, the world's greatest heroes banding together to fight a mind-controlling starfish who can be defeated with garden lime? Convincing an alien invasion to go away and leave us alone by showing them panels from comic books? Only in whimsical nonsense.

Re: A World Less Magical But No Less Fantastic

Just where he came by those talents is a significant part of the mystery that envelopes the man. Darkwing, who has never directly crossed paths with him but observed recordings, believes that he recognizes some of the more fundamental moves that Bravo uses as being basic lessons taught by the Shado...

Normally, even the most trusted age...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Mary Marvel! Mr. Tawny! Dr. Sivana! Captain Nazi!)

Hm. When I re-envision the DCU, I usually put Captain Marvel in the Golden Age Superman's spot in the JSA, but this guy ... this guy might work better.

He makes exactly one post-Golden Age appearance, in the Who's Who entry for the Monster Society of Evil, where the author is nice enough to note that since he was from Nagasaki ... yeah, you can guess where this goes, right?

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Captain Marvel! Capt. Marvel Jr.! Mary Marvel!)

Sivana's recent turn as a wizard was poorly considered, buuuut ... I think the idea of him as a Son of Ether-style mad science-magician, who believes he's doing science but is really warping reality in conformance with his will, would go a long way to cleaning up the problems with the idea that a ge...

Re: JDRook's Revised DCA Builds - Black Adam! More Birds, but not in Hand

His first Who's Who entry just states that he served the Pharaoh (here identified as Menes) "[f]or a time" before killing him. That was the mid-80s Thomas version, which was reasonably close to the original from '45.
