Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

The outfit is pretty terrible, but the story actually has some really good bits.

Re: J-Mart: Overwatch - Winston

Well, this is very unexpected, but I'd like to see where you're going with these builds.

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

That stuff about Anti-Chinese sentiment is VERY accurate to what a lot of cities in North America had. I was watching some documentary about riots taking place in various cities. Even my own hometown has a bit on that in the local museum- smallpox was found to exist in some of the Chinese communiti...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Shao Kahn! Sindel! Quan Chi! Shinnok! Onaga!)

I'm going to voice the unpopular opinion, but I like Shinnok's general concept much more than Onaga. Like Shao Khan, the Dragon King looks a bit too much of a direct physical menace.

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

Well, the buils so far cover all the recurring enemies of Tex except one: Andrew Liddell a.k.a. "the Master" (not the one of Doctor Who fame). Unfortunately I've never read any storyline with him and so I'm very hesitant to tackle the character, especially because I don't have nay good way to judge ...

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

Also Nizzi wrote pretty much all the "big ones", an annual special that included a self-contained 200 pages stories, always penciled by an artist that wasn't part of the regular creative team. Over the years Sergio Bonelli managed to some pretty big names working on his father's character including,...

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

Ah, did some looking into your other bios about Nizzi- I'd forgotten that the middle writer of Tex's books was another guy, unrelated to the others. So was Nizzi a somewhat unpopular writer, or was he just a controversial one? Are some of his tales more "Rule of Awesome", or just feature the charac...

Re: #41 Bonelli - Black Tiger

Wow, now THIS guy's interesting! I mean, on the surface, he's clearly just another take on the "Yellow Peril" threat, but published years after the peak of the genre. But then I see all the stuff you've added about how much the writers hated racism and prejudice, and added a lot of depth to things....

Re: Jab’s Builds (Jax! Kano! Cassie Cage! Jacqui! Kitana! Mileena!)

Tanya and Chameleon are pretty much unknown to me, but I think that one of the greatest plusses of the reboot game was redesigning all the ninjas (both the Lin Kuei boys and the Edenian girls) and mage them look different enough that you could tell them apart by the silouhette alone.

Re: WAIFU WARZ - Disney Edition: CINDERELLA Rides into First

Artist JoshMC did a series on Princesses as fighters that might not be totally up your alleay, but it sure looks relevant. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/intermediary/f/01e9b21d-6117-41fc-8873-8a7bd95cdf43/d3bthpf-aee92a2b-df36-4e45-ab1b-0b9ec28e3151.jpg https://images-wixmp...

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

Yeah, long-form bluffing is hard to pull off in M&M. The characters in comics are fooled by the disguises because they’re supposed to for the plot- players in a game would get suspicious instantly, and would have to roll poorly dozens of times in a row. Part of the reason a “Terra” situation is har...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Cage! Sonya Blade! Jax! Kano! Cassie Cage! Jacqui!)

Looking at the entire rooster I'm kind of amazed how the entire MK franchise changed. Back when the first games came out I really didn't like them, today I think that the reboot is one of the best fighting games I've ever played. Also, I got to admit I have a bit of a soft spot for Kabal, he's one o...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Tremor! Johnny Cage! Sonya Blade! Jax! Kano!)

Man, these games have produced some TRULY dreadful and forgettable characters- I mean, broken record time, but it's like EVERYONE after MK 3 was a total wreck. Full points to MK X for attempting to remake Bo' Rai Cho, Kenshi and Shinnok, however. But man, it makes it tricky to decide when to post t...

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

Oh geez- I feel like an ass. I TOTALLY clicked on this topic, planning on reading this last build when you first made it... and then obviously something happened and I shut down the page or whatever, meaning I never got around to it, as it had left my "updated topics" notification by then. I totall...
