Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Genies! Achairai! Arrowhawks! Hags!)

It's funny how near-universal the dislike of ugly old women is. Something about it really creeps out humanity on a base level. Which explains so much of 2016. That would be really funny if there wasn't some sad truth to it. :( Look how hated Thatcher is in England, too. Her funeral procession had p...

Re: [M&M3e] Shrink-Ray, Affliction or Attack Extra?

TECHNICALLY, the first one also gets a "Cumulative"-ish thing, since you can shrink them further each time. The latter one, while cheaper, just says "turned to shrunk" at the last level, and you have to beat them by a pretty huge amount just to manage THAT. The first one allows you to blast them ove...

Re: Your first "Cartoon crush"

As a kid, I hated Lady Jaye, because she had... UGH... SHORT HAIR!!! Of course, watching the show as an adult, I was like "!!!!", because HOLY GOD that look suddenly became a thousand times more attractive once I attained maturity. The voice and the flirty nature helped. Of course Young Jab was way ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

From what I understand, the SW6 batch was conceived of by the creative team as a way to recapture the original spirit of the Legion while also having a new mystery. Yeah, that does sound like it would be the reason. It was just so odd for me to read about it while going through the LOSH bios- you'd...

Re: So, favorite pro wrestlers?

Here's a fun story about wrestlers going to North Korea for the "Kollision in Korea" show. Scott Norton's encounter with the Communist military tapping his phone calls sounds terrifying. I also love their description of the women's wrestlers, as the Commie women of NK are essentially starved-down dr...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Timber Wolf! Cosmic Boy! Kid Quantum! Karate Kid!

It's easy to explain, handwave or even allow for those kind of tropes. For one, Lex Luthor and Dr. Doom would never go in for that sort of thing, barring the brief heel/face turns. One thing that pissed people off about Huldin's Black Panther, the idea that they had a cure for cancer and never shar...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

All I remember from half-watching that movie was the weird realization that three iconic '80s movies (Police Academy, BTILC, Porky's) featured the same actress; one who didn't even become a name until she became Samantha Jones :). C'mon, man, you can't have forgotten about Mannequin ! And, of cours...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

Nightgirl‘s entire species should have Innate Darkvision, since their homeworld is perpetually dark. If I recall correctly, the official explanation for her power’s Daylight drawback is something to do with stellar radiation, so that starlight on Earth (and most other planets) at night is dispersed...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Karate Kid! Projectra! Legion of Substitute Heroes!)

Hey- question:

Has anyone here read interviews regarding the reboots and the decision making processes for them? Like why the obvious "Soft Reboot" of the SW6 kids was just dumped and they got rebooted fully? I mean, the reasons are easy to guess, but I'd like to get takes from the writers.
