Re: WAIFU WARZ - Disney Edition: Sleeping Beauty Goes For The Knock Out

I'm really loving the Disney Princesses builds. You've done some very creative stuff mechanically to set them up.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Mega Man 11! Triumph! The Ray! The Punisher!)

Once a hero kills -- however rarely -- the bodies start to rack up. Comics go a long time, and the tenth writer, twenty years down the line, will have grown up idolizing that time Spidey beat Norman Osborn to death with a crowbar. And there goes Spidey. I think a bright line is necessary; if killing...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Static! Kid Devil! Kid Eternity! Danny the Street! Damian Wayne!)

The Adrian Chase Vigilante series wasn't a great series by any stretch, but I'll give it credit for having a definite end goal in sight after a certain point, and decided to showcase the psychological downward spiral of a man who became a crimefighter with the best of intentions, but slowly fell do...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Wendy & Marvin! Arrowette! Speedy! Miss Martian!)

To me, they really stand out for being the caliber of goon the Monitor could provide in his pre-Crisis days. Look forward to seeing what you do with them.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Wendy & Marvin! Arrowette! Speedy! Miss Martian!)

Wait, does this mean we're not going to get write-ups of Cheshire's teammates Spear, Bazooka, Slasher, Tanker, and Scorcher? I mean, how much more jobbery can you get?

Re: The most petty thing you'd do as a comics creator

I'd adapt my Heroic Age plot to the Marvel Universe. Sometime around 1990, real time, Franklin Richards started thinking things were "kewl" and "badass." He wanted his parents to put spikes on their costumes and carry guns. When Onslaught was "defeated," he just moved into Franklin's mind, continuin...

Re: Superheroes with unique ability sets

Raven's original power set (empathic healing, teleportation, and her "soul self" whatever the hell it did) was unique both in scope and visuals. Visually, only Phoenix came close.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Blackfire! Brother Blood! Trigon the Terrible!)

Yeah, Tim Drake now defines Robin to me. Nightwing is a guy who was Robin, but I think of Dick as Nightwing now.

Jason was a mistake.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Deathstroke! The Fearsome Five! Doctor Light!)

I'm for Namor, JLU, and Marvel's cosmic scene. No real interest in fighting games.

Re: Dr. Light (The Rape-y One)

Yeah, sensory based attacks should really be more of a case of Reflexes than Fortitude, requiring you to turn your head or cover your ears in time to avoid the attack, rather than just "My Eyeballs are more resistant to dazzles" due to a high Fort save. Characters who can easily deal with such an e...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Brotherhood of Evil! Deathstroke the Terminator!)

Yep. There was a "DC Comics Presents" issue where Dr. Sivana attacked Metropolis in a giant robot for no apparent reason (this was back when Cap and Superman were on different Earths). After Superman predictably destroys the robot, Sivana escapes and flies to the Rock of Eternity, where his real pl...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Brotherhood of Evil! Deathstroke the Terminator!)

I don't really find transformers any more problematic that other Affliction-based attackers or characters with Create. You want to turn Cyborg into water? He's not equipment; you'll need to use an Affliction on him. (I'm currently running a group of Eternals; every one of them has some degree of Tra...

Re: Plasmus

-Plasmus has one of the more unfortunate power-sets for a super-villain to have, in that his TOUCH is FATAL, which means of course that he CAN NEVER USE IT on a super-hero, or the story's over. I think you're overstating the case here, Jab. I remember several occasions where Plasmus got his hands o...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Terra! Supergirls! Kyle Rayner! Mr. Twister!)

Having GMed a teleporter, the reason it only works on mooks and backgrounders is really simple: Dodge saves are dead easy for most people remotely near the teleporter's PL. And anyone with a movement power is likely to be back in short order.
