Re: Jab’s Builds (Lynx-O! Mumm-Ra! Namor Builds! Destiny!)

This is almost certainly a reference to the death of Simon Magus as portrayed in the 1954 movie The Silver Chalice , inspired by the apocryphal Acts of Peter . Never heard of it. The bios don’t mention it, but it’s likely. It was released ten-ish years earlier. Basically, the film's Simon meets his...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Lynx-O! Mumm-Ra! Namor Builds! Destiny!)

-This retcon story results in Destine going into hibernation for a second time, waking up in modern times. Namor, remembering Destine (who now called himself "Destiny"), fought the villain. Destine escaped and ran for President of the United States, using the Crown to mind control anyone who heard ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Cheetara! Pumyra! Bengali! Lynx-O! Mumm-Ra!)

The pufferfish incident claimed that Namor had the powers of all sealife; I would be willing to give him a small, Tiring Variable that allowed him to do the pufferfish trick and the electrical aura and whatever other fishy tricks he can come up with.

Re: [OOC] To Live ... (Recruitment Closed)

Okay.

Owing to some unfortunate delays on my part, we are not going to be able to start the second adventure of this campaign today, like I originally announced. I'll try to get it ready to go within the next two weeks.

Re: Christie Monteiro

What adds an extra layer to the whole thing is that she practices Capoeria, which involves a lot of bouncing, bobbing, weaving, flipping and jumping. That top of hers would last less than a second before it failed at its job. It's like she was designed for a hypothetical Dead or Alive crossover. Th...

Re: Your Favorite Crossovers - Video Game edition

The new SRW game, Super Robot Wars T is out now, and as with the previous two games it has an English language version that's not available in North America. Its in-progress playthrough can be seen here . The game features some series that I never would have expected to see in a game like this ... m...

-Leo's father was a world-famous spelunker (... the f*ck? Since when are SPELUNKERS world famous in the 2000s?),
Maybe he had a cybernetic arm.

Jokes aside, I can testify that it's very hard to remember to use 'they' for characters like this.

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

So Conan is guest-starring in Avengers: No Road Home . Huh. I thought they lost the Conan rights to Dark Horse, and that Dynamite currently has the rights to Red Sonja. Where I'd heard that they got them back -- as Dark Horse is really not doing very well these days -- but was expecting any series ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Microchip! Stone Cold! Leviathan! Saracen!)

What in the actual F- . . . If you hadn't put Fraction and Remender as her creators, I would have sworn from the outfit alone she was another Ennis addition. Yeah, I was a bit like "HUH?" when I saw that pic. I hadn't seen any images while I was building the character. I won't say that she's dresse...

I'm pretty sure he was planning on living forever. ;~) 65 is pretty good for a guy who's past his physical prime, tends to antagonize people, seems to be in the middle of trouble... and probably has a large number of people who'd want him dead. I am deliberately leaving the exact circumstances of Z...
