Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

Why do I think Wolverine leaving his own body parts would've made a much better story?

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

Mechanically, my Cyclops' most important ability isn't his optic blast... Man with the Plan: Luck Control 1 (Benefit Another), Luck 4, Innate, Variable Trigger • 10 points Do what Cyclops tells you to do. It will work. I felt like Fame and PRE 7 were sufficient for Captain America and Superman.

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I think my favorite period, for Cyclops and Wolverine was between Manifest Detiny and Second Coming. Scott steps ouf of Xavier’s shadow and starts actually accomplishing things for mutant-kind. He politically out-maneuvers Norman Osborn, then being treated as the greatest threat since Doctor Doom. H...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Sailor Saturn! Pharaoh 90! Marvel's 1993 Annuals!)

I used to be cheerful. Then I binged on the Elric novels.

The hell with everything.

Re: Adapting Cortex Prime for Different Genres

I really love the concepts of Cortex, but I found the lack of crunch killed my creativity as a GM. I tend to ruminate on personalities and backgrounds while writing up mechanics, and if I'm done with that in thirty seconds I end up with no character. But I really like the emphasis on "this is of dra...

What were the dinosaurs like, Ken?
Tasty. They tasted like chicken. Actually chicken tastes like Diplodocus.
I used to love me some barbecue Stegosaurus ribs. (Seems we are of an age.)

Re: [M&MS 3e] Superhuman control and villains

With that brief, I wouldn't confine yourself to villains. Heroes who aren't willing to "register" seem to be within their remit...

And I wouldn't be at all reluctant to steal from yourself.

The Endless, on the other hand, are pretty much more powerful than anything.

(And they may also exist in the Marvel Universe... or at least Death does.)
In the Marvel Universe, they're the Friendless: Eternity, Enmity, Entropy, Epiphany, Expediency, Empathy, Eulogy. Or so Peter David says.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Validus! C. Superman! Computo! Mordru! Universo!)

Stargrave, in his first appearance, punched Superboy out of the battle and was slinging around energy blasts on par with Wildfire. The “father of Brainiac 5” bit was the big end-of-issue reveal. Unfortunately in those days I bought my comics at the grocery store, so I never saw the second part. The ...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread

These are great! I love Europa's costume and telepathic stunt names, and Orinflamme's whole concept. And someone in comics who doesn't speak English! Bravo!

My question is, where is Buzz Baxter in Jessica Jones?
