Re: Jab's Builds! (Zankuro! Moon Knight Builds! Midnight! Morpheus!)

Cripes, but Moon Knight really DOES have a weak-sauce roster of foes! Not as embarrassingly bad as Cage's (with the exception of a tiny few, like Chemistro), but as forgettable as Iron Fist's definitely (one memorable one before the modern era is Steel Serpent). Most aren't really terrible, but...th...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

What the $#!& is 'Brown'? There are three types of humans, Caucasoid, Negroid and Mongoloid, each with their unique facial and biological appearance, 'Brown' is not one of them! No, actually even as far back as the 18th century there were more than three primary racial groups recognized (though in ...

He was portrayed by the extraordinary Geoffrey Holder, so yes, he was.

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

The best recent treatments of Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family of the last decade or so have been: Shazam: The Monster Society of Evil TPB/graphic novel by Jeff Smith; Part 5 of Grant Morrison's Multiversity , "Thunderworld Adventures; and Astro City 43 , by Kurt Busiek, detailing the adventures...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Boris & Ninotchka! Iron Fist! Lei Kung! The Ninja!)

Huh. I don't really see Lei Kung as that formidable, since he's never really beaten anyone major in the MU to my knowledge. I just don't see him as, say, Spider-Man's equal in combat, or even Wolverine, because those guys just go up against all sorts of opponents all the time, many clearly more phys...

How did Pirhana Jones or Cottonmouth keep from accidentally biting off their own tongues, I wonder?

Re: Jab's Builds! (Shades! Power Man! Hardcore! Jessica Jones!)

Kristen Ritter actually is unrelated to the late John Ritter; she grew up on a farm, and got her big break as a teen model.

Pretty much plays variations of the same character over and over (type-acting) but she's really good at that type.

All my best.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man! Hardcore!)

Rogue debuted in a Avengers annual, but went downhill for awhile, becoming Dazzler's recurring foe. She got redeemed in more ways than one by turning hero. Constrictor and Boomerang were Hulk jobbers who ended up becoming decent, fleshed-out villains with backstories. Mr. Hyde was on the way to lose...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Luke Cage! Discus & Stiletto! Shades! Power Man!)

I think the problem is mostly with the hairline on Princess Adora/She-Ra-it should be a bit "softer" (the pattern at the temples looks like an adolescent boy's hairline) and fall more over her ears (because otherwise it can't help but remind one of a mullet). I might also argue for slightly wider ey...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Tai Cheetah, Foxy Roxy, Dali Llama! Luke Cage!)

Yeah, it just seems odd how so many Cage villains from the 1970s just somehow have minor super-strength, enough to hang with Luke back in the early days of his career. No explanation given at ALL-Big Ben Donovan, Cottonmouth, Mangler, Boris....like, shouldn't these guys either have had origins for t...

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

Yeah, my build of the character made many of the same points- it captured a very solid character from a community you don't see very often in comics, and did it in a way that felt REAL- not flawless, not idealized, but REAL. Kamala was given a BIT of validation by other, established heroes, but it ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Tai Cheetah, Foxy Roxy, Dali Llama! Luke Cage!)

Why didn't they just have Bushmaster's son acquire powers, instead of doing the weird resurrection via draining his own child's life-force thing, I wonder? And then they killed him all over again in the same story. Seems pointless. Man, Cage has AWFUL villains for most of his solo run. Thank goodnes...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Tai Cheetah, Foxy Roxy, Dali Llama! Luke Cage!)

Honestly? Given how slipshod Marvel is about continuity these days-and OK, a villain coming back from seeming death isn't quite the same, but you know the writer/editor just forgot the first Diamondback was long dead-I'd just assume it was an impostor. Especially with the acquired without explanatio...

Re: World of Freedom 3.2 - The Sentinels (updated)! Meta-4! The Algernon Files

I realize it's a coincidence, but I'm struck by the similarities in the origins and powers of Onyx and my Russian villain Eminence, who got covered a bit in this thread earlier. Could be a future plot hook. Your work is really quite good, and while I love seeing it pop up, obviously take whatever ti...
