Re: Poodle's panopoly

I would love some feedback on Arsenal from you guys. Pretty solid build-he's something of an archetypal 1990s/early-2000s super-solider type, a skill-monkey with an emphasis on gunplay/heavy munitions than hand-to-hand combat. The "bottomless satchel of weapons" power isn't wholly original (I think...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Heavy Mettle! Slapstick Foes! Future Man!)

I didn't recognize either of their names either, so I did a search. Colleen Doran is apparently a top-flight illustrator for comics (mostly non-superhero in the last fifteen years or so,doing a lot of OGN and indie work) and occasional writer. She's worked for such big names as Neil Gaiman. George C...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Soldiers of Misfortune! Heavy Mettle! Slapstick Foes!)

Pride of Baghdad actually does the best treatment I've ever read of how (sentient) animals might view humane captivity within a (humane) zoo habitat, instead of life in the wild.

Dansen Macabre is actually a belly dancer, not a stripper.

Yeah, I'm that much of a nerd.

All my best.

Re: Sidious' FASERIP Builds: The Olympian Club, Freedom City Builds

Huh. Yes, upon reflection, there were TWO groups of "faux" Olympians, along with the actual pantheon; there were also the D-Bees posing as the Norse gods, and the maybe/maybe not Babylonian divinities. Though I suppose it could be argued a LOT of advanced aliens, demons, enhanced humanoids, and shap...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Speedball! Namorita! Nova- Rider & Sam! The Sphinx!)

The Sphinx is another of Marvel's failed would-be master villains, most of which seemed to get churned out from the late seventies through the mid-1980s; Graviton, Maelstrom, Nefaria, Superia (OK, I guess she was a 1990s era flameout), the Master (wow, John Byre, really put effort into that moniker,...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Speedball! Rage! Namorita! Nova! The Sphinx!)

The Ka Stone, the Moonstone, the Gem that turns John Jameson into Man-Wolf, and the Alpha & Omega Stones from the Basilisk, all came from the same place, the Kree Tree of Life. They, along with 4 more were used by the first group of Guardians of the Galaxy. 4 died within the Earth's solar system. 2...

Re: Watchmen: Eppur Si Muove

Jean Smart as Silk Spectre sounds like great casting- she was AMAZING on Frasier , and great fun as Mrs. Dr. Possible :). Wonderful actress and a lovely woman-but her casting didn't quite jell with me, mainly because I know what Jean Smart looked like in decades past, and she never had the physical...

Re: Sidious' FASERIP Builds: The Olympian Club, Voltaic, KISS

Commendations! I always found the Olympus Club one of the freshest, most enjoyable concepts to come out of the RIFTS books. Thanks for posting these. Always wish more had been done with the group and its roster.

All my best

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Firestar! Speedball! Rage! Namorita! Nova!)

The first costume is a little plain-no mask, nothing terribly memorable about the design-but the modern one is just WAAAAY too much; too many clashing features, doesn't really flow, and tries to mix 90s era "edgy" with traditional four-color costume. And yeah, Condor should have been...something. I ...

Re: Sidious' FASERIP Builds: Rintrah, Composite Superman, BION

Nemesis Kid is an entirely different character from Earth-Man; N-Kid had a power grained through an alchemical elixir, which gave him the ability to defeat any single foe or challenge. He didn't consciously control the power he gained, so if he faced Superboy, he might gain ever greater strength tha...

Re: CW Superheroes: The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow

Haven't explored too many sites, but I bet Tom Welling fans are peeved... Many are, though some believe it is a fitting ending for the character as portrayed in the Smallville series. In my head canon, Tom Welling's Clark/Kal-El is content to relinquish his powers because since the end of the serie...
