Re: J-Mart: Morgan Le Fay, Cosmic Hulk, Mongul, Mongul II, Mongal

I've said it before and I'll say it again: DC made a big mistake by denigrating the original Mongul Post Crisis and then killing him off. Mongul, to me, serves a great purpose by giving high tier heroes like Superman, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel a space spanning, high powered despot to fight INS...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Cheers! Sam & Diane! NORM! Woody! Frasier!)

Something from the Frasier wiki regarding the episode where Diane came back: This is one of Kelsey Grammer's favorite episodes. On Cheers, Shelley Long didn't like the Frasier character and lobbied hard to get Grammer removed from the show. The producers disagreed, noting that the audience liked him...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Cheers! Sam & Diane! NORM! Woody! Frasier!)

I don't get the cast trying to blame Long for leaving. I don't get mad at a coworker for getting another job even if it makes my job harder in the meantime. It's not like she was purposely sabotaging the show. She just didn't like her job and wanted to change. If they have a problem with that, it's...

Re: Jsa

1) Find a reliable source of comics about the characters from that era, most likely in collections or digital forms. 2) Read them until you're familiar with the source material, enough to really know the characters, the types of stories of that era, etc. 3) Use those stories as inspiration for your ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Arabian Magic! Warriors of Fate! Cheers! Sam & Diane!)

It's kind of funny. I used to watch Frasier pretty regularly for the longest time, but I don't know that I've seen an entire episode of Cheers from start to finish. I've seen clips of it, I know about it via pop culture osmosis, but I never really watched the show at all, and thus have no real perso...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

This one was a lot of fun, and kind of heart-warming. The humor works because of the principal characters involved, since Drax and Mantis both have limited understanding of human society along with very dissonant codes of conduct. It helps that the movie goes by Rule of Funny, so no one gets (badly...

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

I just saw this last night with my brother on Disney+, and it was a lot of fun. It gets a solid recommend from me.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Shakira! Jennifer! Deimos! Claw! Arak- Son of Thunder!)

Arak was a fun book, going with a "all myths / religions are true" approach and generally treating them all pretty respectfully. A neat twist was that it was presented as something of "the last days of the Mythic Age", where the Greek / Roman gods had left Earth, the supernatural...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Warlord! Machiste! Shakira! Jennifer Morgan!)

There was a modern version of Claw that appeared in the short lived Primal Force comic that came out after the Zero Hour event. It was meant to be the 'supernatural superheroes / exploring the dark corners of the DCU' book, but I bought it primarily because Red Tornado was on the team. The book was ...

One of the very few things I actually liked about it.
I found the side stories way better than the event itself. Convergence Shazam was a joy to read.

Re: The Coyote Den

I've been reading a web-comic called Dragon Ball Multiverse that did a similar premise to the Tournament of Power, but had it so that we go alternate realities where certain characters win, thus allowing it to be a greatest hits of fighters from across Dragon Ball lore, along with a few unique origi...

Re: The Coyote Den

An ongoing joke over in DBZ Abridged was how completely disinterested the creators were with Jiren. Anytime they had a meeting and Jiren came up, someone would say something snarky, like yawning while saying how "interesting" Jiren was. Heck, the last episode of the series took a potshot a...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (8-Ball! Omega the Unknown! Ulysses Bloodstone!)

I honestly love the concept of Ulysses Bloodstone. He's basically a heroic Vandal Savage that dedicated himself to hunting monsters, which is awesome. He has access to this whole Highlander style history of being involved in things, he could be someone who faced guys like Apocalypse and Dracula in t...
