Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

Why did Chlorophyll Kid's look change so drastically in those three pics? He was an average teen to athletic teen then overweight teen with the worst costume. Short and unsatisfactory answer: just like the rest of the Legion, he got redesigned by each artist who drew him, and the lattermost (Giffen...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - Freedom Legion Members!

You know Steel Wind never got his background posted... I got about three-quarters of the way through it when I realized that I was talking more about the organizational culture that produced him than I was about him as a person. But I'll -- hey who knows if the man is still alive, and if his woman ...

Re: The Legion of Substitute Heroes

= THE LEGION OF SUBSTITUTE HEROES: [/u] -A great running thing in the LOSH books over the years has been the Substitute Heroes. Since the Legion always held tryouts for new members, and often had to cruelly reject people (usually by yelling at them for their uselessness and shouting "REJECTED!", be...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - The Voskhone Fighting Ring!

Author's Note: Inspired by Jab's LSH builds, this is both a character present as a member of the Freedom Legion in the year 2525 -- If anyone posts lyrics to the rest of that song in response to that, I may do something drastic. Ahem. -- and also a demonstration of how I might redesign Karate Kid t...

Re: Sailor Moon- Series Overview

Meanwhile, Uranus & Neptune aren't DONE being bitchy, and so they call out the Sailors for the naivete that nearly destroyed the planet. All "sure you DID save the world, but you also RISKED it!". Sailor Moon acknowledges they're right, but the elder Sailors demand a FIGHT! And this is the other re...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

While I don't hate 'Karate Kid' as much as a certain someone does, I have to say that I view his alias as absurd, and grossly reductive. "I have mastery of thousands of fighting styles from across the galaxy" reduced to "I am really really good at Okinawan/Japanese kickboxing" just doesn't make muc...

Re: Magnetic Kid

-Magnetic Kid is a mere footnote in Legion history nowadays, having been his Cosmic Boy's less-cool and powerful brother, who nonetheless made a heroic sacrifice. Of course, that's the entire POINT of the guy- the hero's lesser brother, who made a good attempt. That's a bit of a simplification, sin...

Re: Your Favorite Crossovers - Book and Comic edition

This is reflected in his RPG character write-up at the end of the book, where he has a Challenge Rating of 11 to John Carter's 10 and Sonja's 7. Makes me wonder where Conan would have rated. Since the version of Sonja they were using has duelled with Conan as an equal, probably the same as her. (I ...

Re: Sailor Moon- Series Overview

We never really see the INSIDE of Pharaoh 90- just the aftermath, as the black portal disappears, the sun shines, and the hole where Mugen Academy once stood now fills with a slow, rising pool of calm water. And Super Sailor Moon returns, carrying an infant wrapped in cloth. And with a rather horri...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Lightning Lad! Matter-Eater Lad! Laurel Kent! Saturn Girl!)

Was that a Silver Age thing? I've never seen it. In '80s comics I have, Superman seems to know the deal. The most notable example is from the Great Darkness saga, where Superboy asks Saturn Girl to do it, and talks cheerfully about his adopted parents ... as she realizes that he's probably carrying...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Lightning Lad! Matter-Eater Lad! Laurel Kent! Saturn Girl!)

You should probably give her a Memory Alteration alternate effect, given that she routinely erases Superboy and Supergirl's memories of future knowledge when they time travel back to the twentieth century.

Re: Lightning Lad

-"The Super Moby Dick of Space" took Garth's right arm, and it was replaced by machinery. He and Saturn Girl would eventually marry and have a child, becoming adults over the duration of the Legion book, but their child was stolen away by Darkseid during The Great Darkness Saga , where it later gro...

Well, just the same as with my universe - there's a load of self loathing, left-handed dudes.
Is there a sinister in-game reason for that?
