Re: J-Mart: LADIES NIGHT! Warrior Woman, Sin, Power Princess

I'm really partial to Gruenwald's 1985 Squadron Supreme characters. The various alternate versions from 2003 onward never really clicked with me. The Supreme Power material might as well be removed from continuity entirely and exiled to the same section of the Phantom Zone as the Sentry, given how ...

Re: Warehouse W - Energy Controllers: Nightfall, Thermite, Stratocaster, Vloedgolf

I love that I inspired a whole chain of builds here, and I have to say you're doing way more with the concept than I ever did.

You have a weird way to spell “sexy,” Scots.
Of course it's sexy. I just don't believe too strongly in making redundant statements.

[E]very single female character in the John Carter of Mars series.
Everyone on Barsoom runs around almost or entirety naked, regardless of sex or species.
Still qualifies as an example. It's an egalitarian example, but an example nonetheless.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Dream Girl! Star Boy! Colossal Boy! Mon-El! Shadow Lass!)

Also you can't forget that any woman with skin colour outside the human norm in a science fiction or fantasy setting is bound by the genre itself to show as much of that skin as possible. See also: Starfire, Gamora, basically any Twi'lek in Star Wars, basically any Orion in Star Trek, and every sing...

At least Superman is getting his old costume back.
But Lois and Jon are disappearing. Because Bendis!

I sincerely hope it just turns out to be 'problem of the story arc' rather than a permanent thing.

Re: Mon-El

https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/10/101435/2120240-mon_el__4_.jpg Now here's a character who was ill-served by adaptation, and also the reason why the Supergirl live action series started to suck so much. I've always been something of a Mon-El fan, so I was actually pretty excited when...

Re: LDF : Women of Strength & Power

Because when designing a fictional universe, I feel that verisimilitude is important. This means, in part, a consistent and logical explanation for things. Had I been both alive in 1960 and in charge of DC Comics, well, yeah, I’d have wanted some better explanation for why they had a core cast of t...

Re: LDF : Women of Strength & Power

The initial Justice League lineup included seven of DC Comics' superheroes who were regularly published at that time: Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, and Wonder Woman. By editorial mandate, Superman and Batman were very rarely included and after the first few yea...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Havok! LOSH- Chameleon Boy! Dream Girl! Star Boy!)

All of these people thought it was okay to let a Superman-level metahuman with severe mental issues run around unsupervised. The dude belonged in Arkham, not the Brownstone. Given that he was clearly non-violent, and not really much of a danger to himself or others, and that in fact most mentally i...

Okay... and why is that?
The inverse of the reason why the founding Justice League members are approximately 71.4% to 85.7% male depending on continuity.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Havok! Legion of Super-Heroes! Chameleon Boy!)

I also hated the "crazy Star Man" from the JSA as well. Why writers think those kinds of guys are a good idea, I'll never know. It's also galling because they had a far better and more accurate depiction of a mentally-ill character at the same time with Cyclone and her more manic-depressive tendenc...
