Re: The Boys

The Boys is a series I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole for one simple sentence: "Based on the superhero comic written by Garth Ennis". I know Ennis has his fans, that his Punisher series was quite good and there's folks that enjoyed his run on Preacher and Hitman. I am not one of them. The only ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Giganta! Green Arrow! Black Canary! Huntress! The Question!)

* Also, it's funny how Eiling (a borderline combatant- he can punch out a Soldier with a sneak attack, but Batman one-punched him without breaking stride while walking in another direction) magically becomes a good fighter the second he gets super-powers. Seriously, he's hyper-athletic, doing flips...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Giganta! Green Arrow! Black Canary! Huntress! The Question!)

I prefer to just say "Soldiers of Victory". Besides the fact that the name wasn't used consistently, there's also the fact that a typical story in Leading Comics (which often said "Five Favorite Features" on the covers) had somewhere around 9 "soldiers", plus the horse.

Re: Vigilante

-Vigilante was a Golden Age Western superhero active in 1940s comics who had a bit of a mixed-up history (involving two Earths having near-identical Vigilantes), but ultimately the character vanished to history, with others taking the name periodically, like in a Marv Wolfman series in the 1980s.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wonder Woman! The Atom! Annihilator! Giganta!)

From Shade's reaction to Giganta, one got the impression that Giganta had "Fascination (Going Commando)" as an Advantage.

I always though a Black Mass involved Satan worship.

This clown was one of team of villains when DC went through its "New Teen Titans is our best selling book: turn Justice League of America into a bad NTT imitation/'Justice League Detroit'" phase.
