"ah....that one had potential"


I actually had sort of an idea for post WWII Defenders of the Earth campaign to sort of set up a JLU like roster of pulp era heroes which I know is on Ares' Christmas list.


And the idea of the Rocketeer complaining to his girlfriend about the Rocket Man serials having ripped him off.
You sir. I'll have two of what you're selling.

Actually, it's hilarious you say that, because at this very moment, at my desk I have a copy of "The Sinister Shadow" by Kenneth Robeson, an official novel that teams up Doc Savage and The Shadow.

....what would you say to one of Prince Thun's descendants being Lion-O?

While we're at it, eventually Richard Wentworth (aka The Spider) had his identity discovered, so he and his lovely lady Nita had to fake their deaths and disappear. They settled down, bought a house, and changed their last name to Fitzpatrick, a nod to their friend Stanley Kirkpatrick. They had a daughter named Mary, whom they trained to take care of herself, and she inherited a bit of the psychic premonition of danger her mother had. Mary met this nice young man named Richard Parker. The former Wentworth lived long enough to see the birth of his grandson Peter, before he and Nita both died peacefully after a life of constant adventure, confident their children and grandchildren were destined for a completely normal life.

Well sure, but I figure being trained by Doc Savage would knock out something like 60-70% of the necessary teaching requirements. If Bruce can get both Doc Savage AND The Shadow as teachers, that's more like 90% once you discount the overlap.

This thread put me in mind to watch Sleepy Hollow. I put the DVD in, and turned on the TV, and... the movie was on before I closed the DVD holder.

It is on Encore Classics.

Yeah,the DVD was made with the options and title screen at the end of it.Just press the Main Menu option on your remote&you'll be cool.

There's been a LOT of Johnny Depp movies on Encore Classic lately...;)

Well you're in luck, there's an actual Pulp thread in the Books/Comics/Webcomics forum. Get in there.

one of my absolute favorite B-movies, written by Peter David.


My favorite part is probably the big speech about the creature known as the Mon-Ding....and how it hates fear and will attack anything that gives off the scent of fear with its venom, leading to the old saying "whatever knows fear BURNS at the Mon-Ding's touch!"


I was 15 when I saw that and was like "WHAAAAT? OOOOOOOOOH! I understood that reference"
