Re: DCU Question - Jack of Spades II

If I run into him at a family reunion I'll see if I can find out.

Re: She Hulk Attorney at law

Spoiler
Not a fan of how Jen is instantly better than Bruce at absolutely everything.
But otherwise, I enjoyed it, and will be back for episode 2.

Re: Nite Owl (Dan)

An observation I had while playing Dan in some of those DC Heroes modules long ago is that the material of his cape and cowl seem to be heavier than your typical superhero costume. My head-canon is that they're actually a reasonable thickness of kevlar, with strike plates in the cowl to make it a he...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Iron Man! MAULER! The Raiders! The Unicorn!)

And I'm with you on Bethany Cabe, Ares. One of my favorite parts of Matt Fraction's run was him bringing back Mrs. Arbogast and Bethany as part of Stark Resilient; the dynamic between Bethany and Pepper was fun. And Mrs. A. monetized hippies!

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Iron Man! MAULER! The Raiders! The Unicorn!)

I don't believe Pepper's actually limited to metals; IIRC, she's blasted the Sandman in the past. At least in the early days, the same "electromagnetism" descriptor was attached to repulsors; I think Pepper's just using repulsor tech.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Metamorpho! Etrigan! Animal Man! Elongated Man!)

I have a theory that the Elongated Man is the litmus test for whether your version of the DC Universe will succeed. If you can gracefully accomodate Ralph Dibney, the World Famous Elongated Man, your version will thrive. While the Arrowverse seems to be on its last legs now, it did well while Ralph ...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Firehawk! Geo-Force! Metamorpho! Etrigan!)

I can never encounter Etrigan without trying to rework Ray Stevens' classic "Gitarzan" into a song about the rhyming demon.
Etrigan! And his demon band!
Let's give 'em a hand, they're all you can stand!
Etrigan!

Re: Marvel and DC Heavy Hitters

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Clock! Doll Man! Capt. Triumph! Plastic Man!)

Plastic Man belongs in the Justice League because, unlike the Martian Manhunter but like Captain Marvel, he's a name that has some recognition outside of comics fans. He also has the distinction of being the first stretchy hero, and his golden age longevity. Respect the plastic.

Re: Origins 2022 (June 8-12): I plan to GM some games and I'd like your input

I think whether or not to use names vs. archetypes depends in part on how much your system mechanically reflects personality. I wouldn't want to try to playlets Smallville with Clark as generic super-person, because so much of that system is about representing his personality and relationships. On t...

Re: George Pérez passes away today at 67

I always thought that if I could be an artist, I wanted to be George Perez. I never wanted the position to be open. Thank you, George, for every flight of imagination your pencil sent me on. Thank you for showing me how much a distinctive face meant on a character. Thank you for teaching me how much...

It’s time for another hot, pleasing poll! I wanna gauge interest in what follows the JSA/JLA set. Iron Man Builds: the last of the big Marvel sets! Only took me six years!

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Red Tornado! CYCLONE~~~~~!!!!! Shining Knight!)

"Stealing Thunder" was I think my favorite of this series, mostly because we got the focus on Jakeem & Johnny, the Hourmen, and Cap being treated as the big deal he is. The world got saved from a cosmic threat without Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman being able to lift a finger to help.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Manhunter I-VI! Wildcat I-III! Hourman!)

I love the Tylers, because the one hour limitation is both so pervasive and so innocuous. Villains don't have to get hold of special substances to take advantage, or know anything special about the hero for it to limit him. In Rex's solo stories, at least the ones I've read, a literal ticking clock ...

Re: J-Mart: Demons - Balor, Assassin, Chain, Imp, Legion; Moon Knight

I never saw Moon Knight as "not-Batman" any more than, say, Daredevil. Really Daredevil bears more resemblance to the current incarnation of Bats; they both have little horns on their masks and their preferred method of doing detective work is scaring and beating the snot out of people who...
