Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

The earliest example in comics I remember of teleportation being used as a weapon was by the Warpsmiths, a pair of alien heroes in Alan Moore's Miracleman ; they are instrumental in bringing down the main villain, Johnny Bates (a Captain Marvel Jr. ersatz gone WAY wrong. Realizing Bates is imperviou...

Re: Jab’s Builds (D’Vorah! Kotal Kahn! Freddy! Jason! Alien & Predator!)

Weird how Blink was incredibly popular among X-fans for a fairly decent number of years, before utterly ignoring her finally killed off the character's heat. And yeah-Magik (who ALSO got an Exiles revival) got reverted to childhood, killed off, replaced TWICE (first by super-obscure Amanda Sefton an...

Re: Owen Stephens post on Ronin Army

I doubt it will stick around for long, but anyone have insight on what this guy is training around? Dear Green Ronin, Please be aware your sterling reputation is soon to be marred by your association with your Freeport writer, Owen Stephens. Paizo will be firing him soon, due to accusations he has ...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Motaro! Sheeva! Shao Kahn! Sindel! Quan Chi!)

I have to vote for TimeKillers next, because: 1)There are a manageable number of characters, unlike Tekken; 2)the protagonists are all atrocious and ridiculous, and;3)my early 1990s self thought it was really damn cool.

All my best.

Re: Your Favorite Crossovers - Book and Comic edition

I gave it a quick read-through, but was mostly just underwhelmed. Honestly, I mostly enjoyed what Geoff Johns did with Billy in the pre-nu52 days of the Justice Society book, but the current conception of Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family may just be too flawed to salvage. IMHO, either revert the...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Disney Done! G! Falke! Zeku! Hammond! *sigh*... BRIGITTE...)

My head canon for the series is the Destines are very long-lived (their progenitor Adam Destine is immortal, and a few have found ways to extend their natural spans) but their heritage makes them less fertile than ordinary humans-their longevity is really the only reason they have descendants in the...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Disney Done! G! Falke! Zeku! Hammond! *sigh*... BRIGITTE...)

The Children of the Vault? Yeah, proof Marvel editors should cosign certain concepts to "this happened in a parallel world in the MU" as canon. I mean-the Inhumans I understand, Jack and Stan created them decades ago, they were the first, and Atlantis was around too, but those were both just ONE cit...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Frozen! Zootopia! Moana! The Incredibles!)

Wow, looking at the pics again, Ms. Parr's...uh, assets, REALLY got played up in the sequel (I haven't seen it yet, though its on my list); I mean the hourglass and big-bottom are more exaggerated just in those screen shots. Brad Bird definitely realized the "MILF" appeal of the character. All my be...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Queen Elsa!!!!! Moana! Maui! Pixar Builds!)

I went through Bob's workout in the first movie, he is shown pulling 7 cars at a fast pace and benches a train engine as well. That would be 11 to 12 or would you say 10 and 1 to 2 points of lifting? Pushing & pulling is easier than lifting, and these are wheeled structures, so it's hard to truly s...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

In response to your questions: 1. There are actually these people called police who could be called if someone was drunk and belligerent at my place of work, though if the person was threatening violence I would likely try to subdue him/her, assuming they didn't have me at gunpoint or the like. But ...

Re: Hello again from JoshuaDunlow

Hey friends. Its been awhile, real life has been extremely hectic. I got evicted from my home, been battling my depression and stress. Plus I got a operation coming up in 11 days. I suffer in daily pain from a broken disc and my peripheral Neuropathy. So that's why I am rarely around, it puts a big...

Actually, you can listen to the audio of the incident right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlMr8Z5-d98 Hey, I was wrong; I thought Ben Jacobs might have been shouting (not screaming, just raising his voice as we've ALL seen reporters do on multiple, multiple occasions when questioning politic...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Paul GIaforte plead guilty in Montana, where the assault took place, not D.C.; he admitted his initial account of the incident was a lie when audio surfaced AND eyewitnesses came forward, including Alicia Acosta of a Fox News affiliate. Giaforte and his campaign manager first claimed the reporter gr...

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

I'm also really disappointed with the nihilistic notion that set off Namor's apparent mad-on for the surface world: the idea that humans on a beach would just stand by and watch Atlantean children die. I know, commentary on how people will just watch as a beached dolphin or similar sea animal die f...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

The case DID "go to court", where Giaforte plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to community service and anger management therapy. Though I imagine he would have been more than capable of managing his "anger" if the reporter hadn't been considerably smaller than he was. Bullies and ...
