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

Know what this reminds me of? That Spiderwoman cover debacle a few years ago. Man was THAT insane. I had a girl I knew and had worked with lose her shit on me for not seeing any problem with the cover. I mean just LOST her shit. I'd explain my POV and there'd be accusations that I was being condesc...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

This is an example of how I plan on writing up each of my own characters when I post them up later. There will be a follow up post with the template that you can quote as use if you wish. I think this would generally be enough info to allow a person to write a character for this tournament. Captain ...

Re: Writing Tournament - Open Invitation to All - See Inside for Details

I don't think I can find enough info for other people on the non-comics Injustice League, so I'm out (at least until I get another idea.) Plus, Nuclear Man is being added to the comics . You technically would be able to still use that list, you'd just need to provide a lot of the info yourself. I'm...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars movie

Sources with knowledge of the situation tell Collider that Lucasfilm has decided to put plans for more A Star Wars Story spinoff movies on hold, instead opting to focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film. No! No no! NO. Focu...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster! Mind Melter! Crazy!)

Yeah, I like Call of Cthulhu, but I never run it as presented in the books. I always use it for source material either for my modern urban fantasy/supernatural horror games, or as part of my Pulp Adventure games. I find the Pulp games let you do the detective work, explore the unknown, and face weir...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Mega-Juicers, Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster!)

According to at least on source I've read, the M.O.M. (Mind Over Matter) implants that give them their enhanced abilities and psychic powers? Supposedly they could fit on the head of a pin. The tubes on their heads are purely cosmetic. They choose to look that stupid on purpose. Now, if it was just ...

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

And you'd think a Black Widow movie would be stupid easy to pull off. Just make a James Bond movie where the Bond Girl is the heroine, and then ramp the action up to superhero levels. DONE. You can even finally have Black Widow win a fight against someone who isn't a mook. And it isn't like Marvel h...

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

Also, it is AMAZING at how badly Marvel wants Carol Danvers to succeed as Captain Marvel and how badly they keep messing it up. She got re-branded as Captain Marvel and got her own solo book in 2012. Then it got canceled and relaunched in 2014. Then it got canceled and relaunched again in 2016. Then...

Re: Emmerich's Godzilla

He doesn't pack the sheer size (he's longer than some Kaiju, but is built more like a real Carnosaur than a massive super-beast, giving him a "puny" weight of 400 tons, versus 30,000 for Godzilla (in the Showa era, no less!). That does give a good indication of the sheer mass some of these guys hav...
