Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dr. Sivana! Captain Nazi & Nippon! Mr. Mind!)

The pre-Crisis Mr. Mind wasn't actually a natural telepath. If he wanted to hypnotise people, he'd design a machine to do it and have a lackey build it. He also wasn't seen, only heard, during the first half of that two year arc. He was a voice; the power behind the scenes. The creators realised tha...

I can't help noticing a) his expression, b) her expression, and c) the location of his right hand.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Mary Marvel! Mr. Tawny! Dr. Sivana! Captain Nazi!)

King Kull is an offensive caricature non-homo-sapiens sapiens. At least that's what my Neanderthal and Denisovan friends tell me. Fawcett couldn't help themselves.

Re: Ibis the Invincible

-Ibis was Fawcett Comics' variant on the "Mandrake Rip-Off" concept. He's got a blue tux and a red turban, and is apparently Egyptian even though he's white (gotta love the '40s). His whole concept is based around being an ancient Prince of Egypt who faces off against the evil Black Phara...

Feel free to use the "calling the Boys superheroes is like calling Liberace a rock star" to explain it to them.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Captain Marvel! Capt. Marvel Jr.! Mary Marvel!)

Off-topic for a moment: one of the struggles I occasionally have in my present supers game is that 60% of the people in the group love The Boys and for 40% of them, it constitutes their primary engagement with superhero media at the moment. Probably needless to say, this has a negative effect. Is t...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Captain Marvel Jr.! Mary Marvel! Mr. Tawny! Dr. Sivana!)

The Lt. Marvels are a bit interesting, being one of the goofier hold-overs from the Golden Age. They only had a limited appearance, and I believe they were an experiment in seeing how secondary Captain Marvel-esque heroes could work, as I think they pre-date Captain Marvel Jr. The Lieutenants debut...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Captain Marvel! Capt. Marvel Jr.! Mary Marvel!)

It's too bad that too many comic creators can't handle Mr. Tawny. It's like he really frosts their flakes. Seriously, Mr. Tawny preceded Tony the Tiger by 5 years. But too many comic creators, today, grew up with Tony the Tiger on their cereal boxes and TVs, and I think that's why Mr. Tawny is &quo...

Re: Doctor Sivana

Sivana had his shit in order early), and went into all manner of adventures, forming groups of baddies like the Monster Society of Evil, and more. We'd even meet his bizarre family (he was twice-widowed), including the super-strong Magnificus, Thaddeus Sivana Jr., Georgia (who fought Mary) & Be...

When I saw this scene on TV in 2010, I decided Zachary Levi was the right man to play Billy Batson's alter ego. The only time I successfully cast a movie.

Re: JDRook's Revised DCA Builds - Black Adam! More Birds, but not in Hand

Its pretty much implied mostly that he was just that a hero for centuries but he became very doom like in his ways very arrogant. felt everyone should praise him for his heroism and be grateful for his divine protection. Felt his way of heroism was the only way and that softer methods werent enough...

Re: J-Mart Prime: BLACK FRIDAY! Black Cat, Black Bolt

I'd have given Black Bolt perfect pitch. In my head canon, if it weren't for his powers Blackagar would've had a tremendous singing voice.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dark Rider & Raider! Captain Marvel! Marvel Jr.!)

Is the "Going to the Rock of Eternity" thing something that only the Marvels can do? Like, do they simply appear there at any point, or are they summoned by Shazam? How much of that is a function of the Rock itself? Getting to the Rock of Eternity is a function of accelerating past the sp...

Re: JDRook's Revised DCA Builds - Black Adam! More Birds, but not in Hand

Black Adam doesn't have centuries of combat experience. He spent most of his 5000 years just flying through space at the speed of light just to get back to Earth. He had no time to fight.
