Re: Jab's Builds! (Deathstroke! The Ringer! Thor Builds!)

I kinda think the Thor comics need to lean even more on characters like Ulik and exploit the fact that he's one quest to dispose of jewellery away from being an out-and-out J.R.R. Tolkien character. We could do with even more elves and trolls alongside the giants and aliens he fights. Especially sin...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Deathstroke! The Ringer! Thor Builds!)

Ah, literally the worst ableist slur you can actually use to the point that reasonable people literally call it 'the R word', and an ignorance of precisely why certain people have a tendency to be hyper-sensitive. Honestly you're both douchebags and need to grow the fuck up. There was a Jack Kirby b...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Deathstroke! The Ringer! Thor Builds!)

I suppose that once the Thor builds are done, it'd be time to stat up Jack Kirby's ultimate 'nemesis'... because this kinda gets hilarious. Warning for politics, though the thing that most attracts my attention is the way this particular shitheel, who's a pretty unambiguously racist and sexist and h...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Deathstroke! The Ringer! Thor Builds!)

Soooo... *starts building a wall to avoid spoiled fruit* From what I'm hearing.. Thor and the Tick share a lot in common. *keeps building the wall* Bombastic, huge heart and little brain... *considers a roof* .. true good types, heroes of the people. *ducks* The recent Tick series is utterly amazin...

Re: Thorbuilds

I think that ignores one of the best aspects of Thor: his rampant, over the top braggadacio. Thor's much more fun when he's explaining in minute detail how he's going to kick your ass, in florid, faux-Shakespearean prose. It's the key to his charm, and the only real bursts of personality he gets (o...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crazy 8! Deathstroke! Mangler! The Ringer!)

It's also worth throwing Sera on that list given how fundamentally important she is as a supporting character in Angela's books. Angela's near the end- I'll have to take a look at her bio. The only stuff I've seen of her was in Bendis's Guardians of the Galaxy , where she does almost nothing. The e...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crazy 8! Deathstroke! Mangler! The Ringer!)

Funny thing is, Asgard is STILL in Oklahoma. It was already established there by 2008's Secret Invasion . Like... that's a long time ago by comic book standards! Nine+ years is an ETERNITY for a shake-up in the "status-quo". I think that because it's just the location of a magical city and doesn't ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Crazy 8! Deathstroke! Mangler! The Ringer!)

Asgard gets rebuilt in Oklahoma?? Were the writers at Marvel on crack or something? I mean, the Norse were a seafaring people. Why rebuild your home somewhere there's no access to the sea? On a scale of 1 to 10 ranking "least to most stupid decisions in comic writing", that scores at least an 8. J....

Re: Jab's Builds! (J2! Wild Thing! Darkdevil! Ten-For! Terrex!)

HAHAHAHA I mean, it is, but precisely the geometric opposite of what you're getting at, precisely because when the subject comes up, certain ideologues jump immediately to the death penalty being bad because it might not be white people dying. Amazing how people can often hear stuff that wasn't act...

Re: Jab's Builds! (J2! Wild Thing! Darkdevil! Ten-For! Terrex!)

I have to admit that in the country where the last person executed was nearly five and a half decades ago, seeing the death penalty being so common in American media is frankly baffling and at times even kinda disturbing. The very idea of a government heavily subject to structural racism and bigotry...

Fuck you, aboleths. Fuck you. Heh- bad experience in gaming :)? Well timed enough, my own worst experiences are mind flayer related. I love the Lovecraftian bastards but they were a goddamn pain in the arse and even one of them could wind up taking out half a party back in my Baldur's Gate days. Th...

Re: Wild Thing

-Oh, come on- this is SO DUMB. A skinny, long-haired, teenage FEMALE WOLVERINE? Who's ever gonna buy a book about THAT? Just about the only reason I stopped was that All-New Wolverine got interrupted with a fucking Civil War 2 tie-in and I basically just hit the point where I'd had enough of Marvel...
