Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - Horus! Hercules! The Ultima! Sentinels of Emeraldias! Hero High Revised!

Yeah, way back (nearly a dozen years or so now) when I first read the original FC edition, I remember thinking about how a few characters were clearly more-or-less direct analogues (Centurion, though later details added a neat twist to his origin) and others were either composites (Lady Liberty fulf...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Tracer! Symmetra! Winston! Zarya! McCree! D.Va!)

So of course, I now ask the most important question: Who is YOUR "Overwaifu"- which character from the Overwatch universe do you find most delightful in attitude and/or physique? Who floats your boat? I'll not answer, because you all know I like to keep this kind of thing subtle and close to the ch...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - Horus! Hercules! The Ultima! Sentinels of Emeraldias! Hero High Revised!

There aren't enough Janet Van Dyne expies. I like this one. Well, maybe Ant-Man and the Wasp will change that. Thanks! I always liked the Janet Van Dyne Wasp, and enjoyed her "Giant-Woman" role in Marvel Adventures even more (really miss that particular alternate take on the Marvel U). So here you ...

Re: Who are our noted missing?

Libra's fine, as far as I know. We just exchanged holiday pleasantries by email. He's a young guy (early thirties at most) who just stepped away to concentrate on his career and continuing education.

Re: Sidious' FASERIP Builds: The T's. Tarantula, Tempest, Terra, Thing!!

I still find it funny you tried to sneak non-canon stuff into all of the origin stories of the minor characters :). Heh. I formally called out Vartox as a homage to Sean Connery in the cult movie Zardoz (which Connors and Dini already sort of did in the Power Girl book), and tried to tie up a few o...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Baron Strucker! Fenris Twins! Blitzkrieg! Brother Voodoo!)

Jab, didn't Shang-Chi have an adversary named Midnight who ended up becoming Midnight SUN, a SILVER SURFER villain? Between Shockwave going on to face off against Iron Man, I'd have to say Shang-Chi better master Chi energies quickly, because at least two foes have SERIOUSLY "leveled up" and might d...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Collective Man! Peregrine! Defensor! Red Ronin!)

Heh. It's as if they felt they couldn't name a character "Bantam" without putting him in a rooster costume; why not just call the poor guy Bantam weight , or Contender, or Fisticuffs or something? Because once he got showed into a chicken suit, no one is ever taking him seriously again. Just like th...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Collective Man! Peregrine! Defensor! Red Ronin!)

Sometimes the best tactic for a writer trying to name a foreign hero is simply to give the English translation (or closest version thereof), because other languages do not necessarily conform to English conventions; I did a Russian villain which got an "official" 3e publication, and was at first int...

Re: Bendis moving to DC

Wait-what am I missing with that reference? I admit I haven't followed any of the X-books for quite a while, except for the departed Wolverine and the X-Men , which was about, y'know, a school for young mutants (man, what a concept! Why didn't Stan Lee ever think of that?), which had Kitty as an ins...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Rising Sons! Rom & The Spaceknights! Cardiaxe! Marville!)

Rampage strikes me as a character concept with at least some potential and relevancy, particularly so in today's increasingly stratified global economy...hell, the Spider-Man: Homecoming version of the Vulture has pretty much exactly the same motivation for villainy, and the concept was praised for ...

Re: Prodigyduck Builds

Do any of of the other MinutemenWatchmen exist? I was surprised you included the original Night Owl, as his role overlaps the Guardian (from Newsboy Legion) to a large extent, and Hooded Justice duplicates the physicality of Atom and Wildcat.

All my best.

Re: Prodigyduck Builds

Interesting you went with a merger of Captain Nazi and Ozymandias (along with the latter now being a contemporary of the JSA/All-Star Squadron); also explicitly having the Comedian assassinate JFK, given neither the original series nor the much weaker related material had Eddie Blake doing so (aside...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Sersi! Deviants! Kronos! The Celestials! Power Pack!)

Honestly? Power Pack should have remained forever in its own little corner of Marvel history; attempts to "age-up" the characters and re-introduce them into the modern, on-going MU are almost guaranteed to fail. Their fan-base (and I honestly liked Power Pack, way back in the day) only cares about t...
