Re: Jab's Builds! (Hugo! Abigail! Ed! Kolin! Menat! MC2-Verse!)

There's one thing, as far as I'm concerned the DC comics has been better than Marvel at setting up legacy characters (starting with the various Robins) for a long time. On the other hand, Marvel was usually better at team books. Neither of these is an absolute, but just a feeling I got from reading...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Hugo! Abigail! Ed! Kolin! Menat! MC2-Verse!)

Looking back at it, the MC2 line was mostly world building so the primary character (Spider-Girl) could interact with other heroes. Saying that, it's one of the few alternate realities that I actually liked and wouldn't mind seeing more of. I think you got it right, still I believe that there was p...

Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Scyther! Arcanine! GODDAMN ZUBATS!!!)

I emphasised psychic types a lot, often with a fire type as my starter (except in Pokémon Yellow obviously), but it's been long enough that I couldn't tell you a specific party layout. The starters in question were Charmander and Cyndaquil, by the way. I have to admit I stopped playing between Gold/...

Re: J-Mart: Vega, The Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is easily one of my favourite supervillains because he's pretty much got it all as far as villains go. He's three dimensional and sympathetic enough as a character to actually He's often very complex and nuanced in his motivations, but also extremely straightforward in his goals. He's pe...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Poison! Hugo! Abigail! Ed! Kolin! Menat!)

I am an unabashed fan of Spider-Girl and will defend her to the death. The rest of the MC2 universe is okay, but I never got into reading any of the stuff outside of Spider-Girl's own series.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Final Fight! Rolento! Cody! Guy! Haggar! Poison!)

In regards to Poison, her being Pre-op and "tucking" makes no sense to me for a couple reasons. 1) I feel like, with the shorts she wears, tucking or not tucking wouldn't really hide much, at least not for long, and 2) Wouldn't 'tucking' be an extremely uncomfortable thing to do in a fight, especia...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Final Fight! Rolento! Cody! Guy! Haggar! Poison!)

Since the fans are allowed to think whatever they want, I think Poison is a cis woman. The whole story of why she had to be changed for American audiences seems quite reasonable. Pretty much everything that came after that? Not so much. Why is it unreasonable for her to be considered a transgender ...

Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Cetaceals! Scyther! Arcanine!)

I always considered them dogs 'cause they were used as police dogs in the cartoon. It seemed obvious, and there wasn't another obvious option for 'dog' Pokémon in the same way that Meowth and Persian were obviously cats, and Vulpix and Ninetails were obviously foxes.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Final Fight! Rolento! Cody! Guy! Haggar! Poison!)

I think the popular perception of Poison amongst the transgender community is that she's a transgender woman, though the idea of whether Poison has had the Surgery™ or not is completely and utterly irrelevant as to her identity. She obviously presents as a woman and uses female pronouns for herself ...

I just thought it was a pun on "Arcane" :).
It's a combination of the two words.

Re: Arcanine

Jab's Notes: I created the Giant Cat build mostly to throw an Arcanine into the mix- it's basically a PL 10 Giant Cat with the Charizard's Firepower available to it. It's quite pricey, but since it's borderline a Legendary Creature, I think it fits. Arcanine was given credibility in the anime by on...

And what kind of New Villain Stink did this bargain basement Witchblade have to beat frickin MAGNETO?
A shitty control scheme and insufficiently implemented powers as part of the game's mechanics.

Re: Superman: The Animated Series

Lois being ahead of her time is well-reflected in the comics of the time as well to be fair. One unpublished comic, which remained unpublished because it would have disrupted the love triangle they were going for in the radio show, had her discover Superman's secret identity and start working with h...

Re: Superman: The Animated Series

I kind of feel in general that the attempts to reinvent Superman as anything other than the utterly dedicated and unwavering hero are kind of misguided at best and outright stupid at worst. I liked Superman: TAS (especially after the first season), but it's not the first port of call I'd recommend f...
