Re: Warren Ellis - Recent Apology / Allegations Disscussion

It's so, so weird to me when some people treat "canceling" someone as a nuclear option when all it really means is that people on the internet don't like you.

Trying to get consistent power levels out of Marvel comics (or DC, probably) is a doomed proposition. At the absolute most, a single writer might have a consistent opinion on the subject.

Re: Superhero Literature

Superheroes vs. a megacorp sounds interesting. (Superpunk?)

Re: Paragons of a Golden Age

Here's one other thing: How do the Nazis handle news of the Pantheon? And the Paramount Society, to a lesser degree, and paranormals in general? There are two competing ideas of a master race, now, and the Pantheon has a much stronger argument than the Nazis do.

Oh, Sandstone's in this one? Neat, I always liked her.

Re: Paragons of a Golden Age

It might be worth thinking about the Evanston incident that prompted the creation of Vanguard. It wouldn't be viewed on TV by people all across the world, or even all across America. There would be radio reports, but that doesn't give people anything close to the same immediacy. Outside of Evanston ...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

I, too, find it strange and alarming when female characters like each other. Especially when they're the same age and have things in common. It's unnatural!

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Stalin! Avengers Builds! Wonder Man!)

It's funny, in Wonder Man's absence the role of "strong guy who jobs to make the villain look serious" has gone to... Thor.

(And if we're going to talk about his costumes, Simon's red jacket and shades is the best one by a mile)

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

Comic writers should be encouraged to focus on morality. On the idea of Superman stopping a teenager from committing suicide. Captain America punching Hitler is only political insofar as it's saying "This hero is American and is defending America from the country that America is currently at war wi...

Re: MnM 3e - Hunter the Reckoning (Interest Check)

It sounds interesting to me, too. PL 5 is still pretty impressive for "normal" people, so would PCs be mildly supernatural in some way? Paramilitary?
