Also, wow..just how many Hawk and Dove pairs are there?
Three or four depends on how you count them:
  • The Hall brothers, Hank and Don
  • The winged ones, see above
  • The Granger sisters, Holly and Dawn
  • Also Hank and Dawn usually work together

Re: Jab’s Builds (DONNA TROY!!!! Terry Long! Tempest! Hawk & Dove!)

Hawk & Dove are one of the big Waterloos of comics. I mean I love the concept, but I don't think any writer was ever able to do them justice. In general they are portrayed being in conflict on so many levels that it's astonishing they even consider to work together: There is family conflict level, b...

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Mephisto, Yama, Proteus, Black Tiger

Interesting guys! So many of Tex's opponents seem to be more mental opponents than physical ones, so Ruby is interesting as a direct opponent. His look- animal-print jackets and such, combined with his name, gives me the impression he's more of a "dandy" or effeminate character, but the way he figh...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Starfire! Bumblebee! Lilith Clay! DONNA TROY!!!!)

Sigh. Donna really is one messed up character by any standard of the imagination and it doesn't help that, thanks to some legal mess linked to the 1977 Wonder Woman TV show, no other TV based production could even consider using her for the next 30 years, maing overall impossible to ever see a simpl...

Re: Gamebook's builds (hs5ias new thread)

Inza has a great look, here. Has the original character been made Egyptian lately, or was she always kinda like that? She looked vaguely ethnic on JLU back in the day. Hot Pursuit looks TERRIFIC- is that an OC of the artist? It's this wonderful combination of superhero & cop. Inza was always implie...

Tragically I remember this game, mostly because of Chaos, and it sucked so badbly back in the day.

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Mephisto, Yama, Proteus, Black Tiger

Interesting- was Zhenda controlling her son via magic, or was it just her being an overbearing personality? Pretty much overbearing personality. From what I remember of Dark Tidings , Sagua grew up without a father and seemed to have a bit of a Aedipus complex, he often questioned his mother's judg...

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Finishing the villains

Re: Jab’s Builds (Lilandra! Layla Miller! Livewires! Living Monolith! Ballz!)

Now I'm curious as to where the "boxing kangaroo" thing first originated from. Circus acts, I believe. It’s positively ANCIENT. From what I found it started around 1891, with a panel in an Australian "penny dreadful" style magazine. The inspiration came from the typical defensive stance used by wil...

Re: Warehouse W - Bonelli Comics: Mephisto, Yama, Proteus, Black Tiger

In 70 years of stories, Tex has explored many variations on the classic western themes. The most common is, of course, the occult, often represented by Mephisto and Yama, an honorable second place goes to the "lost worlds", the science-fiction has been very misrepresented except for a few noticeable...

Re: DnD v3.5 and Wizards vs. Sorcerers

[rant] Ah, yes, the vaunted Wizard Optimization. Which is true, but like most things, it requires some explanation. With unlimited gold, unlimited access to all magic, and unlimited time, a wizard is most OP. However, I have never seen this level of OP "in game." If you want a wizard with that leve...

What?! Is that even legal? I have no clue... I'm not a lawyer, but probably.
