Re: Captain Marvel Worries

The thing is, the circuitry in their homes analyses their surroundings, calculates a 12 dimensional data map of everything within a thousand mile radius and determines what outer shell would blend in best with the environment. All their chameleon circuits are set to "native African hut".

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

I think a lot is going to ride on how they write Billy. If Billy Batson is a heroic kid, like he was for most of the past 78 years, I think the movie will do all right. If they make him the little shit that he became when they started the Nu-52, the film will have problems.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

In my head canon, Bruce is at least 45. Given that he was 25 when he returned to Gotham after his world travels. In that same head canon, Kal-El's rocket landed about maybe 42 years ago years ago. But calculating his actual age is a bear between the relativistic effects on him during his trip from K...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Gigan! Manda! Mechagodzilla! Titanosaurus!)

I keep having to type in the meters into feet in Google, because Green Ronin are RACISTS and only use American units of measurement :). That's math enough for me. Ummm ... page 224. That doesn't help with the Growth chart, since Growth assumes you start at -2 Size or whatever, and doesn't increase ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Gigan! Manda! Mechagodzilla! Titanosaurus!)

There are two types of countries in the world: those that use the metric system and the one that invented the Batman. (If you want to get really nutty about math, ask me to explain ton versus tonne versus tun versus long ton versus short ton versus metric ton versus ISO ton. If you want bonus level...

Looks pretty good, but Mary should skip the collagen injections.

What about Gigantis from Godzilla Raids Again? (Yeah, I know, but it deserves a mention.)

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

I've been considering doing stories about Willy Watson who becomes Captain Miracle by shouting a magic word. Giving full credit to Parker and Beck. But basically using the character that DC isn't using anymore.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Rodan! Gargantuas! Mothra! Minilla! Anguirus!)

The effects people deliberately were inconsistent with Kong's size back in the original. Basically, his size was determined by what was needed for the shot. Keep in mind that to make him visible in comparison to the Empire State Building, they still had to jack up his height.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

But that's just it. They did change Light's personality. Someone wanted to explain why Doctor Light went from being one of the League's most feared opponents (as described in JLA #149 [12/77]) to the Teen Titans whipping boy (see Teen Titans #46 [11/76]). The fact that the former was published after...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

I might interested depending on my schedule. The monster I call "Work" takes most of my time. No worries. I'm not certain we'd get the 4, 6 or 8 folks we'd need for it, but hey, it'd be nice to see if we can pull it off. Didn't you or someone else on Herochat do something a while back where you too...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Or worse. They make him an ass. Besides being a streetwise survivor, Billy is also mature for his age and a nice guy. Yes, he's a child. But he was a child with his own news show. He'd be on these adventures, and, yes, things would happen and he'd become the Captain. But the stories were about a boy...
