Re: Favorite moment of character growth in comics.

Strangely enough one of the most interesting moments I can think of involves one of the villain I hate the most: the Red Skull. Shortly after Acts of Vengeage the Skull was burried alive inside a old anti-atomic bunker by Magneto, as revenge for the Holocaust. Completely alone, the Skull started exp...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Belle! The Beast! Gaston! Aladdin! Jasmine!)

I know your a self-confessed 'Disney-phile' but is that strictly for the animated movies or are you a fan of (and therefore can we expect builds from) any of the Disney live action movies? I haven't watched too many of the Live-Action Movies lately, save for the current spate of remakes- Beauty and...

Lex Arcana

Hello people of the Multiverse, I'm sure that many of you check Kickstarter quite often, but I'd like to highlight this "little" project . Lex Arcana is one of the classics among Italian RPGs (as Das Schawarze Auge is in Germany) and it's coming back for the first time since 1993. I admit I'm very b...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Great Mouse Detective! Ratigan! Who Framed Roger Rabbit!)

Jab, I didn't remember Bob Hoskin's career quite the way it was recounted, but yes-after a VERY promising earlier career (he starred in the critically acclaimed films The Long Good Friday and Mona Lisa , along with the Roger Rabbit mini-phenomenon-the Mario Brothers debacle KILLED his leading man p...

Re: The Great Mouse Detective

A trend I absolutely despise since it basically encourages people to act like assholes while still being able to justify themselves as being in the right. Like its socially acceptable to be a jerk and encourages some people to act like jerks. I'm with you Ares.Admittedly,i was raised with more of a...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Baloo! Shere Khan! Kaa! Robin Hood! The Sheriff!)

From what I've read, Richard the Lionheart was an absolutely terrible king, but a popular one; he beggared the nation by launching poorly considered wars of choice, ultimately lost most of his campaigns (Richard was a fine, brave warrior and skilled tactician, but apparently a lousy strategist), sp...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Aurora! Phillip! The Fairies! Maleficent! Cruella de Vil!)

In my headcannon,Mim turned out to be Mama from the Adams Family( having married Merlin and giving birth to Morticia )... In some Italian and Brasilian Disney Comics, Madam Mim returned as the sidekick of Magica De Spell. Baloo is obviously the most famous character here, contrasting Bagheera's sto...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Aurora! Phillip! The Fairies! Maleficent! Cruella de Vil!)

As a kid there were 4 Disney movies me and my sisters watched non-stop, mostly because they were the only ones we got taped from TV: Mary Poppins , Robin Hood , Saludos Amigos/Los Tres Caballeros and The Sword the Stone . Aside from the epic shapeshifting duel, the scene I remember the most is when ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Vidia! Rosetta! Periwinkle! Zarina! Fawn!)

Maleficent is probably my overall favorite Disney villains. Hades is entertaining. Jafari is delightfully evil. Syndrome is classic supervillain. The Evil Queen has menace. Hook and Prince John are amusing coward. Gaston is a fun jab at the classic Disney hero. But Maleficent? The lady is just this...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

Ares, I noticed that you left out the work of one Lee Falk, creator of two classics of the genre: Mandrake and the Phantom. My only experience with Mandrake and the Phantom have been The Defenders of the Earth animated series, and to a more limited extent Phantom 2040 . I do have the film serials f...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Cinderella! Alice! Peter Pan! Tinker Bell!)

The interesting thing about Peter is that he's, quite possibly, one of the most egregious cases of "adaptation diluition". In the original theatrical script by Barry, Peter had a very diabolical quality, in a way he was very much like the coach-driver from Pinocchio or the Krampus, stealing unruly c...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Brer Rabbit! Ichabod Crane! Mr. Toad! Cinderella!)

I'm kind of surprise nobody has mentioned the other bat-guano crazy adaptation of Alice.
