Re: Jab's Builds! (Tai Cheetah, Foxy Roxy, Dali Llama! Luke Cage!)

Apparently She-Ra is only 14 in this. So do we really have to complain that a 14 year old cartoon girl doesn't have breasts? Did people do that when Kitty Pryde debuted in the 80s? You know, accounting for the differences in how art style would make characters look, she has basically the same build...

Re: Coldfire

I felt this way, while breaking the rules, was easier :). I've used the "Projection" thing before (I dunno why 3e didn't include that- between that and "Possession" being missed, they screwed up statting TWO of the most important Teen Titans! For a DC ADVENTURES game!), but I felt it was easier to ...

Re: Coldfire

-James Jr. has the odd power of creating a super-powered Protoplasmic Form. I had to think about it for a second, thinking of sticking the "Physical Body is Defenseless" thing on his most-expensive power or whatever, and then was like "Derp! SUMMON MINION!" That's sort of basically what he does- he...

Re: Comics on YouTube

The Dark Knight Returns had a surprisingly good story Let's just agree to disagree. While not as terrible as some of Miller's later work, the Dark Knight Returns was kind of bad from a certain perspective because it really skewed basically the entire perception of Batman in the public eye, turning ...

Why are we complaining about a discussion from 9 months ago? I'm confused.
Context is in Jab's Rifts thread.

I feel kinda bad that this always keeps spilling out into his threads.

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds

That one post proves the validity of the meme, and I say that as someone who sufferers from a sever social anxiety disorder who hasn't left their house more than a handful of times in over a decade. Thank you for not letting that turn you into a hateful PC PoC! You know I'm a white person, right?

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

Weird thing is... Gay Legacy Character? How is that NOT perfect for Marvel's recent diversity push? Hell, they already had her! They didn't need to make an all-new character at all! Marvel's so weird. It's not really a diversity push if the characters keep getting pointlessly killed off in various ...

Re: Captain Marvel (Genis)

Genis I guess is just an untouchable character at this point- his sister Phyla had some luck with Guardians of the Galaxy , but that book soon shifted to the "Movie-Only" roster, getting rid of her entirely. They killed Phyla-Vell off way before the films, and the event in which they did so was poi...

Re: Gamebook's builds (hs5ias new thread)

Interesting, taking the outsiders from Young Justice and making them the royal flush gang They seem to have been based originally off of some of the characters from the Super Friends cartoon. Asami/Queen's based on Samurai, Tye/King's based on Apache Chief, and Eduardo/Jack's based off of El-Dorado...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90! Marvel's 1993 Annuals!)

You're a bit off on your timeline. Elric first appeared in the early 60s, well ahead of Kane in the 70s. Moorcock did some epic world-building in scope and depth that is about the equal of Tolkein's and Howard's works. Elric is one of my favorite characters of all time and I think it's a shame he h...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Witches 5! Kaolinite! Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90!)

I think any commentary on Drizzt and whoever Elric is (god, I fail at Fantasy & Sci-Fi SO HARD) counts as on-topic. *cracks knuckles* Okay then. Elric of Melniboné, created by Michael Moorcock, is pretty much the gold standard for the cursed anti-hero in sword and sorcery fantasy and exists arguabl...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Witches 5! Kaolinite! Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90!)

To bring this round to something approaching on-topic. Elric is actually a character who's been published in Marvel books before. He interacted with Conan the Barbarian in a crossover written by Michael Moorcock himself, first appearing in Conan the Barbarian #14-15 in a team up story. Hint-hint. T...
