Re: Jab’s Builds (DONNA TROY!!!! Terry Long! Tempest! Hawk & Dove!)

That's interesting- where do the powers come from? I wasn't aware they were that strong or had a Healing-type power (I just used Regeneration). I often use Healing for regenerator-types – see my Wolverine and X-23 writeups – because it handles the "second wind" moment better than Regeneration, whic...

Is there a third set of Hall's in the DCU? I'm remembering a Hector Hall, the original Silver Scarab/Sandman that went on to become Doctor Fate... and married the second Fury?
Hank & Don, and Carter & Shiera (Hector's parents).

Re: Jab’s Builds (DONNA TROY!!!! Terry Long! Tempest! Hawk & Dove!)

Yeah. I used Hawk & Dove as NPCs in my Birds of Prey campaign, because between them I could espouse any viewpoint or strategy that made sense for heroes -- and if they agreed you were wrong, you were probably pretty wrong. Hawk comes straight at problems; Dove is indirect. Hawk is a fighter, Dove is...

Re: Interest Checks: Board Functionality Updates

A picture's worth a thousand words. And a video is usually at least 30 pictures a second. But honestly that sort of argument is like saying we shouldn't have pictures, because you can use words to describe the character and nothing else. A video is something I can't watch in a brief break at work, ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (DONNA TROY!!!! Terry Long! Tempest! Hawk & Dove!)

Hawk and Dove are my Doom Patrol, I suppose. I love the idea of what they could be, showcasing opposite viewpoints and how they both need the other to be balanced – something I think is particularly relevant to our public discourse at this time. But they've never been done well. I keep hoping. The T...

Good lord. Embedded videos are a reason for me to never, ever visit a site. Please no. Use your words, people.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Lilith Clay! DONNA TROY!!!! Terry Long! Tempest!)

Really, I think the best thing for Aqualad was the total reboot of the character in Young Justice . With a blank slate, they could make him a level-headed leader, yet still a fish out of water in a some situations, and add some interesting ties to Black Manta. And the hard water melee weapons were c...

Re: Thriller

I finally DID get a copy of the first issue a couple of years ago, and it's so mind-blowing nonsensical that I have literally no idea what was going on. It's one of the biggest examples of a book suffering due to lack of exposition, as it was just a bunch of STUFF going on with nobody explaining wh...

Re: J-Mart II - Married on a grey and grisly Wednesday...Solomon Grundy

Good to see you posting again, Thorp. And I like the scale idea; I try to run my own game with the same kind of PL range.

Re: Cyborg

I understand that the most iconic members of the Justice League happened during a time when there weren't a lot of black heroes, I understand that Vic is probably DC's most high profile black hero thanks to the exposure of the Teen Titans cartoon, I get that there's a president with his appearance ...

Re: 397 - Colossus

Characterization: Colossus is typically portrayed as being peaceful, selfless, reluctant to hurt or kill anyone, and always putting himself in danger to protect others. Yet for all that, he has one of the highest body counts of a non-clawed X-Man. Do not push Colossus too far. Riptide can tell you ...

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

I guess I’m the minority; I liked Maleficent . It’s a different story from Sleeping Beauty , yes. Maleficent is a different character. But I liked her transformation from hero to villain and back to hero. I liked the subversion of “true love” as only romantic love. The recreation of the christening ...

Re: Cross-Posting: Kaulu's "Leverage" Builds

Really like these, especially Nate and Sophie. I'm a huge fan of capers in all forms, and thoroughly enjoyed Leverage. I think you may be overrating Hardison though; I don't think he has more Persuasion than Sophie or Nate, though in Sophie's case she may be cheating.

"My motherboard is too big for my chassis" really sounds like a porn boast.
