Re: Jab’s Builds (Tiger Shark! Orka! Stingray! Namora!)

The death of Moira reminds me of how little is left in the way of non-superpowered supporting cast members exist in the X-Men books. Once, there used to be the numerous family members of the X-Men and New Mutants, Moira, the dance instructor/physical therapist, security officer, and nurse (all of wh...

Re: Who are our noted missing?

I imagine Batgirl is just on "break", though obviously when and if she re-debuts is entirely up to her. MacynSnow was fairly prolific, but sometimes life gets in the way-goodness knows, injuring my hand and wrist drastically cut down my commenting and writing for several months. Still, I hope both a...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Andromeda! Llyra! The Fathom Five! Tiger Shark!)

Tiger Shark could work very well as a Namor villain IF his abilities were upgrades so that while underwater , his agility, swimming speed, and senses were all slightly SUPERIOR to the Sub-Mariner's own, with Namor's still-superior strength being off-set by Arliss' fangs and ferocity. This would give...

Re: Superteam Handbook

I have a suspicion that whoever wrote the Project Freedom section has more than a passing familiarity with our game but I doubt he'd use characters other than his own without consulting ahead of time Aside from legal and ethical considerations, the Project Freedom roster was crafted to feature seve...

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

Hey! Welcome, my friend, always good to "see" a new member of the community. As far as series from the Big Two-well, from Marvel, I am enjoying The Immortal Hulk , Superior Spider-Man, and occasionally I'll pick up a few issues of Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, , and X-23 ; on the DC side, Dam...

Re: Superteam Handbook

Gotta be honest, the Project Freedom part is the main reason I'd but this book. ^_^ If it features Charlie and Zane, I'll plotz... I'd buy the hardcover if they showed up While I'm encouraged by the response to Project Freedom's presence, no Charlie or Zane, sorry. But there are several fan-favorit...

Re: Superteam Handbook

I have it on good authority the chapter covering Project Freedom is the best in the book.

Re: Jab’s Builds (Kings & Armor Kings! Lei! Jacks! Xiaoyu! Paul Phoenix!)

If Gon is anything like his manga counterpart I'm surprised he's only a PL 6 (I haven't played Tekken in something like fifteen years or more, so I wouldn't really know). In the manga, Gon takes on crocodiles, full grown tigers and lions, and other much larger predators and wins (or at least stalema...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Mega Man 11! Triumph! The Ray! The Punisher!)

A few quick notes on your most recent posts, Jab: Triumph: As I may have stated once before, Dwayne McDuffie's biggest error was thinking "smarter than DC editors and sort of smug about it" was the same as "smarter than DC's best-known heroes, and REALLY smug about it"; Triumph was written as arroga...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Eagle! Fulgore! Hisako! Eyedol! Gargos!)

The Johnny Blaze version of Ghost Rider...really did NOT have many memorable villains, but somehow his book never got the same bad rep as other series with mostly lame, forgettable bad guys. A lot of his foes were visually striking at least, and pretty macabre, and of course having SATAN as your arc...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

A couple Pulp villains I'd suggest who would serve as counterparts: Captain Mors: Not the original, but a female descendant, who could serve as the antagonist for Black Venus and/or the Rocketeer, as a Prussian super-aviator is pretty much tailor made for the role. The Golden Amazon: A genetically e...

Oh, have you finalized the villains and henchmen, beyond those mentioned in the original text?

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

Thanks! Not familiar with the PC game/video game characters, or the anime/manga guy.

And I guess this is going to involve time travel? What with Conan, John Carter, Lone Ranger, etc.

All my best.
