Re: Captain Marvel, Jr.

Sometimes it feels like DC only acquired the rights to the Marvel Family solely so that they could exercise some decades long, slow, revenge scheme against them for daring to outsell Superman in the 40s and 50s. Yeah, sometimes. But no. DC acquired the rights because in the early-to-mid 1970s class...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Raven! Danny Chase! Red Star! Changeling! Cyborg!)

Freddy was NOT a sidekick. After his introduction Captain Marvel Junior... 1) Went to his own solo feature in Master Comics , and quickly becoming the lead feature. 2) Carried his own solo book for 119 issues from 11/42 until 6/53. 3) Rarely appeared in Whiz or Captain Marvel Adventures with Captain...

Has the Whale Shark 'bot changed size? Or is still close to human size?

Re: The Atom (Ray Palmer)

Ray Palmer Debuts; No One Buys His Book: -Ray debuted in 1961, written by some of DC's top creators, but given a pretty lame assortment of baddies. He nonetheless got added on to the JLA as its seventh member, owing to both he & Hawkman having the same editor (Julius Schwartz) as the JLA title. How...

Re: Cyborg

Cyborg- A Marvel Character in the DC Universe: -The whole “rough life; looks horrible” thing is SO Marvel Comics, which is part of why he fit in so well with the Wolfman/Pérez Titans, and why I now think he fits in so poorly with the Justice League (which is usually supposed to be “The Most DC” cha...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Kole! Raven! Danny Chase! Red Star! Changeling!)

Beast Boy, prior to being Changeling was weird. He didn't turn into green animals then. He turned into normal coloured animals with a green human-ish face. But since Gar was green, the Doom Patrol made him wear a purple face mask, with a black (or yellow) domino mask over it, presumably to distact p...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Flash! Arsenal! Kole! Raven! Danny Chase!)

I thought the design the "Teen Titans" animators gave Red Star was a good way of combining Leonid's classic uniform with a military uniform. Plus the hat just sells the "He's Russian" thing.

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Flash! Arsenal! Kole! Raven! Danny Chase!)

From what I've read, despite the stupid-sounding name and concept, they did have a kinda neat gimmick: The members of the Wildebeest Society would act as if it were a single villain named "Wildebeest", even though there were actually many of them, and each one wore an exosuit that made them look si...

If you put the Hand against the Man-Thing for too long, you end up like Daredevil.
Or Werewolf by night.
Or both.

Re: Sidious' FASERIP Builds: NEW New Builds

How well, would Man-Thing do against a large group of ninja? Does he have a weakness against them? Because, we know who the biggest clan of ninja in the Marvel universe is. And I was taught that it's bad to put the Hand against the Man-Thing. https://i935.photobucket.com/albums/ad199/Thorpacolypse/9...

Re: Recruitment Thread (The Jabverse)- Recruiting CLOSED

well the insetting rationale was that she presented a credible scenario that he was under threat for his shady dealings as a loose end. he disbelieved her and so its moot at the moment but also this guy was stated to be irrelevant ie Mook so again. *shrug* I am rolling the next one against him thou...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Flash! Arsenal! Kole! Raven! Danny Chase!)

And I've never figure out if there was a connection between Andre le Blanc, French jewel thief, and Andre Blanc-Dumont, French Blackhawk. And just for fun, a George Perez drawing of Raven. No, not the one in Titans Tower . https://i.pinimg.com/474x/d6/dd/ab/d6ddabff3c81e906f287bc562d7323b8--legion-t...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Flash! Arsenal! Kole! Raven! Danny Chase!)

I didn't hate Danny straight out of the gate. Then again, I didn't hate cousin Oliver at first either. But, in time... In all fairness, I thought Danny's "Phantasm" bit, sometimes being inside the cloak and mask, other times telekinetically controlling the disguise while he hid, was actually fairly ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (The Flash! Magenta! Arsenal! Kole! Raven!)

Wikipedia says that the 1980s version of Raven can shoot fireballs "from within the folds of her cloak" (giving the The New Teen Titans Annual #4 (1988) as an example) but I haven't seen it myself. She was dreaming, and she was fighting some kind dream manipulator. And they were less fireballs than...
