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.

Re: The Scorpion

This version below though, not Venom, not stupid pincer hands. Classic Scorpion. One of my most memorable characters to those that have met me was called Mac Gargan in homage. http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/5586/486352-sc2.jpg THE SCORPION I (MacDonald "Mac" Gargan): He SO needs a g...

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

Give Dr. No a full-blown cyborg body instead of just prosthetic hands, replace SPECTRE with HYRDA, give his goons laser rifles, and replace the bulldozer with attached flame-thrower with a proper mini-mecha... and you’ve got yourself a Captain America story. Make Pussy Galore and her Flying Circus/...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Rosa Klebb)

Or just ignore the Craig Bonds. I don't think they even take place in the same universe. I certainly don't enjoy them as much as, well, any other Bond. (No disrespect to Daniel Craig; he does a fine job. It's just not the kind of story I want to see for Bond. Bourne, maybe.)

Curious how you reconcile the All-Father with the CEO of Monoc Security. Thought I've been wondering if Nick Fury isn't just another guise for Mister Wednesday...

And here I thought it was because "Black Dwarf" was a stupid name for a pale giant.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Orga! MUTOs! Gamera! Pacific Rim! Gipsy Danger!)

* The whole "Yellowjacket brags about killing Hank Pym" story is dealt with, with the heroes going "well we can't find a body, so we don't know WHAT he's talking about, but we trust Jan's judgment", and thankfully it turns out that he IS Pym... just under amnesia. The Avengers just kind of roll wit...

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: 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...
