Re: Maggie Sawyer

-Maggie Sawyer is an occasional character in the Superman books who is now most famous for being Batwoman's lover and fiancee at one point. A semi-prominent lesbian supporting cast member was a big rarity in the 1990s, and while the TV show didn't explicitly SAY anything, she was given the same sho...

Re: Lois Lane

-Lois is pretty much the archetypical Super-Hero Love Interest, and she's obviously the most iconic and famous. Of course, she's been given about a zillion different personalities over the years (flighty dame, damsel in distress, career-obsessed ball-busting harpy, etc.), but the Superman cartoon m...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ra's al-Ghul! Batman Beyond! Inque! Blight!)

In general, I think that Ares pretty hit the mark, but I would like to add something on some points. Personality wise, Superman is a paragon, a sincerely good person very much like Captain America. But where Steve's heroism is filtered through his patriotism and background as a soldier, Clark's hero...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ra's al-Ghul! Batman Beyond! Inque! Blight!)

One of my personal challenges has always been to rebuild the DCAU Superman at PL10. While all the characters got a massive power boost with JLU, it was most noticeable with Supes that went from struggling to stop a cran to crash to pushing spaceships with his bare hands. One of my personal benchmark...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Scarecrow! Riddler! Robin! Phantasm! Roxy Rocket!)

I always found very funny that the production team redesigned Bane's mask to look more like a luchador's.

Re: Fantastic Heroes & Witchery (Monsters converted)

I don't understand how those disposition rules work (especially the Agnostic disposition).

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Two-Face! The Scarecrow! The Riddler! Robin!)

Since you already built both Catwoman and Two-Face, I'd to point out one of the crowning glories of the BtAS development: the human side of Batman. Frank Miller's Year One popularized the idea that Bruce Wayne is pretty much just a convenient mask that Batman uses every now and then, something very ...

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

Compared to the previous Godzilla 2014, this movie at least had a sense of agency for the human characters, which was a big part of the development of the story and, in my opinion, made sense. Not only Monarch was founded to study and counter the kaiju, but this version of Godzilla (and the other k...

Re: WAIFU WARZ - RE:ARCHETYPE - THE MAGICAL GIRL "BEFRIENDS" THE OPPOSITION

I swear I'm reading these, but there's SO MUCH TEXT that I keep getting ADD and forgetting to finish a paragraph and then I do some of my own builds and have to re-check from the beginning again, lol. I remember the Big Eyes Small Mouth RPG detailing the origins of the Magical Girl genre, and even ...

SUMMER GLEESON
I never understood why the production team had to create a brand new reporter character instead of using Vicky Vale.

Re: Godzilla King Of The Monsters

I just got back from seeing Godzilla King Of The Monsters. The movie was a good solid Godzilla film. And I only had a couple of minor nitpicks. But otherwise? It was a great movie. My first complaint: Way too much concentration on the humans. Humans are supposed to be largely incidental in a Godzil...

Re: DC Comics - Heroes in Crisis & Doomsday Clock = Why so serious?

So Heroes in Crisis is finally, FINALLY over. I'd call it a hot bag of garbage, but I feel that would be an insult to heated sacks of refuse. Tom King should not have been allowed to project his own mental hangups onto the heroes of the DCU. Doomsday Clock is . . . weird. I hate the idea they keep ...

Re: Mister Freeze

Freeze also shows how NOT invincible early Batman was, as Freeze was basically a slow moving guy in a suit of armor that only gave him very mild superstrength (in the 1 ton range tops), yet even without his gun he was slapping Batman around like nothing. Batman in the later seasons would mop the fl...

Re: WAIFU WARZ - RE:ARCHETYPE - THE MIMIC LENDS A HAND

As I noted over the years M&M isn't really meant to represent power duplicators/mimics. Simply put the entire stitch of such characters is to be able to go beyond the normal caps, but this is a big no-no in this game.

Re: Flying Tiger

-Flying Tiger's only had about ten or so appearances, most of them involving Fabian Nicieza's Thunderbolts , where he was part of the Crimson Cowl's lame replacement Masters of Evil. He was also seen in the "Pleasant Hill" prison and with Baron Zemo's "New Masters" recently, so he's at least back i...
