Re: Woman faces descrimination as police and media refuse to label her crime "rape".

Probably mental health + gender. A guy here did only 5-ish years for DECAPITATING SOMEONE ON A GREYHOUND BUS because he was "off his meds" and is now "low-risk".

Re: Jab's Builds! (Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man! Hardcore!)

Trying to think of other "rescued" Marvel villains, because I swear they're better at this than DC. Mac Gargan got a much bigger push as Venom II. Sabretooth, of course, went from forgettable Iron Fist jobber to Main Eventer. Mystique languished as a Carol Danvers foe- now she's an iconic film chara...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Luke Cage! Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man!)

Of course, DC tends to focus more on "Rogues Galleries". Captain Boomerang isn't a jobber like, say, Comanche is. He appears in COUNTLESS books as a recurring guy. The Flash & Batman in particular took major focus on that, to great success. That’s kind of my point. Turning a “jobber” into a “rogue’...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 23rd

Regarding timelines, I generally just find that by the time it's midnight here, most of the people I talk to are already asleep, save for a couple of others. The vast majority of people in North America tend to be 1-2 hours ahead of where I am. It was particularly notable in the first Crinoverse gam...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Luke Cage! Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man!)

Marvel has oodles of jobbers, but they’ve never really been good at developing them. Most of DC’s most popular bad guys are jobbers too, but writers have given them much more attention over the years. But you’ll find people happily buying merch for and writing blog posts about how much they love Pe...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 19th

I was sorta planning on starting it around then, but it'll probably be slow going for a bit. And I really only expect a post a day- I'd honestly get annoyed if people started spam-posting like it was a Crinoverse game. I live on a different coast than many posters, I think. OMG!

Re: Coldfire

-James Jr. has the odd power of creating a super-powered Protoplasmic Form. I had to think about it for a second, thinking of sticking the "Physical Body is Defenseless" thing on his most-expensive power or whatever, and then was like "Derp! SUMMON MINION!" That's sort of basically what he does- he...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting Till July 19th

Timeline moved up, eh? Guess I'd better finish mulling... When do you plan on starting the game, Jab? I go on family vacation from 7/27 to 8/5. I can probably post some if I get in, but If that's going to be an issue, I will keep my name out of the hat. I was sorta planning on starting it around th...

Criminy... there goes the weekend to work on things.
LOL- sorry. Didn't realize there were others still mulling. Sorry guys! I extended to deadline just past the weekend- I only moved it up because I thought people were mostly done and everyone was posting a lot in here already!

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Pussy Galore remains the most insane, totally bizarre character name in history. WHO ON EARTH WOULD EVER BE NAMED THAT?

I mean, it's not even as silly as the Austin Powers parody, Alotta Fagina.

That novel origin story is pretty classic "this was written in a DIFFERENT TIME, okay??".
