Your last two...the Netflix version of Colleen Wing and the second White Tiger analogues?

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ganesha! Kali! Anubis! Nuckelavee! Werewolf!)

Huh. I looked up the Beast of Gevaudan and it appears a semi-supported modern hypothesis is the Beast was actually a young male lion, escaped from captivity. If so, some of the other attacks by large wolves in the area were 'retro-fitted" to be the work of the Beast. The story reminds me a bit of Gu...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Baba Yaga! Ganesha! Hanuman! Kali! Anubis!)

The Nuckelavee is actually of the most horrific monsters of Scots legend, considered a demonic spirit which spreads pestilence, famine, and even drought; apparently it was kept in check by a sea god/benevolent spirit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuckelavee I got to learn a whole new word-"Orcadia...

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

Well, both Ms. Marvel and Miles Morales/Spider-Man DO have a fan base, enough to sustain decent runs in today's market...and so does the marketed-to-young-girls version of Squirrel Girl (for THAT book to run nearly 60 issues is AMAZING); no, they don't approach the levels of young readers Marvel boo...

Re: So Now What? [If You Haven't Seen Endgame STAY OUT OF THIS THREAD]

I always enjoy your posts. I do hope you might be posting more on your World of Freedom setting in the near future-I still need to know what's going on with Dracula, Herald Sisyphus, Oblivion Knight, and Ultimaid!

All my best.

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

Except She-Hulk was NOT originally "invented as eye candy"-in her early incarnation, she was intelligent but often depicted as looming and nearly feral in appearance, though not especially muscular; later (when she first joined the Avengers), Jen was portrayed as (honestly) rather "butch" in her man...

Re: Superteam Handbook

I don't think my criticism is at all unfair. I buy pretty much every Mutants & Masterminds book without fail. I like the line enough to throw my money at it. Bladewind: I'm sure you would have wanted a book that was much more focused on subverting aspects of the superhero genre to do new things. Th...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Ghosts! Loch Ness Monster! Spring-Heeled Jack!)

The third “monster of Armageddon” was Ziz, according to Jewish legend, essentially an early version of a Roc-a monster of the sky, corresponding to the beasts of the land and sea.

Re: Superteam Handbook

As one of the authors, I thank you profusely! And I hope you enjoyed the Project Freedom section as much as you liked the rest of the book!

Re: "Guardians" Russian Superhero Flick

Just stumbled across this thread, checked out the trailer, and had a few questions: 1) Did the trailer show the best 2 minutes of the movie? 2) My 10-year old wants to see it. How is the movie in terms of sexual content and gore (not worried about superhero violence) 3) Any other recommendations fo...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jotun! Tengu! Haniver! Medusa! Vampires!)

Weird how the New Mutants book was so very good in its early run, and the characters sort of a big deal...and then both became just about entirely irrelevant, really quickly. Some of the old members occasionally crop up here and there, but never in any important way. About the ONLY exception is Rahn...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Panthera-Tereon! New West Gear! New West Finished!)

RIFTS South American 1 & 2 really remind me of the setting's appeal-there were INCREDIBLE ideas in the books, along with some really appealing (though now very dated-looking) artwork. It was always one of the best systems to inspire or swipe characters and concepts from, then use them as part of a g...

It is entirely possible the same might be true here as well.

As stated, Etta never got to see a page from Tomen's Archive. She's fallible.

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 Setting Detail

A bit more elucidation on THIS version of Harriet Wainwright: She isn't particularly keen on the current situation either; she has a daughter of her own-same age, strong resemblance, similar personality-but not identical. Not even as close as she is to the Harriet Wainwright who inhabited this world...
