Re: Jab's Builds! (Genis-Vell! Phalanx! Wolverine!)

Yeah, but the pros (Claremont, Cockrum, et al.) didn't really get discussed until part three.

Re: Comics on YouTube

I was going to ask about Alan Brennert being Frank Miller, as Brennert wrote the Elseworld Batman: Holy Terror.

But then I dug a little deeper. I'd never heard of Miller's Holy Terror.

But since it looks like SSDD to me, it really doesn't convince me there's a difference.

DC Editorial has been actively hostile to married heroes for the last twenty-odd years. I wouldn’t get your hopes up on any superhero marriages lasting for long.

Re: Castellia- A Fantasy Setting (Nightshades! Nymphs! Wyverns!)

I didn't mind the second Shining Knight being a woman, but her having a name so close to Justin's, especially depending on how one pronounces the "J", really stretched my credulity Ystin is the Welsh pronunciation of “Justin,” Ystina is likewise Welsh for “Justina.” I knew it was a pronunciation of...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I felt like Fame and PRE 7 were sufficient for Captain America and Superman. That scene, in a roll playing game, would have Superman's player saying something like "I look at Otis as if to say, no you're not taking my cape." And the GM should have Superman's player roll Intimidation. No abuse. No v...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

Invulnerability is silly and unrealistic. The ability for flesh, muscle, and bone to knit themselves back together at hyper speeds, even to injuries that a normal person couldn't recover from, that's realism , baby. Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson's Manhunter , circa 1974, had a much better "healin...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I remember my distaste for for Wolverine started in the mid-to-late 1970s. I was 8 or 9. And a kind-of friend of mine started telling me about this new character who could "shoot claws" out of his wrists. The way Andy described it, it sounded like they were launched as projectiles. And they could "c...

And Maycn, I would've defaulted to Justin, too. But then again, I was born on the original Earth-Two.

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

I don’t and never will understand the idea that people cannot enjoy a character who isn’t the same ethnicity or gender as themselves. It's the new sexism and racism. Apparently, if I enjoy a quesadilla or an unagi roll, I'm guilty of cultural appropriation, since my ancestors came from northern Eur...

Re: Jab's Builds! (The Flame! Charon! A Huge, Throbbing Genis!)

It’s like the comic book arms of these conglomerates aren’t being run by people who actually like comic books. I've gotten the feeling that not only does the WB not like comic books, I suspect that don't even like the DC properties. And have put in people who feel the same way in the top spots at DC.
