Re: Mutants and Masterminds partners with Valiant Comics

Haven't seen anything about that yet, Davies...would you elaborate? Faith has Benefit (secret identity.) Okay, so Benefit (alternate identity) was already extant, and this is probably what they're aiming for, but I'm worried that they're going to insist that anyone who has a secret identity, howeve...

Re: Mutants and Masterminds partners with Valiant Comics

My fingers are crossed that those advantages are just restrictive options, such as "this advantage is only a Reaction to use, but it's limited to once per turn," rather than changing the way Reactions work in general. But the multiple dice mechanic is important from DnD5, so maybe one-rea...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (G-Dog! The Hanged Man! SoulCalibur! Mitsurugi!)

My reflections as Astro City , following Jab's build sets: First of all, I'd almost forgotten the first issue was all the back a trifle over 28 years ago; I suppose part of it is just me getting older, but the other may be that the series went in fits and starts, over multiple publishers, different ...

Re: Mutants and Masterminds partners with Valiant Comics

Okay, so Invulnerability as a power might not exist after all. Alex Thomas has posted on the Reddit indicating that there's going to be "an Extra you can purchase for individual character's Protection Effects called Hardened. For 1 pt/rank, if you gain two or more Degrees of Success on your Da...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Gentleman! Wolfspider! Atomicus! The N-Forcer!)

Looking back, Atomicus really just comes off as temperamental and erratic in his behaviors, since at certain points in the comic he seems to enjoy and egg on their “game”, almost daring her to expose him, then throwing a massive tantrum when she did. I also agree he seems to combine the Atom-Age/Sil...

Re: Telekinetic vampire

Hmmm…pretty solid build, and good grasp of character building; likely the one problematic power is the Blood Drain, because it’s frankly going to be ineffective against any non-civilian NPC, so you don’t get much value from the points; maybe tweak it a little so the GM will let you put it into your ...

Tillie is also clearly a Little Orphan Annie analogue.

Re: Taros' Tokusatsu Builds (Ultraman '66! Pigmon! Suflan! Gabora! Jirahs! Gango! Mummy Man! Dodongo! Pestar! Gamakugira

Childhood memories of afterschool Ultraman re-runs...low-grade production values, but better story lines than I remembered. Thanks for these, OwoMotaros. Dealing with some of life's sadder realities lately, and this thread made me smile.

All my best.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Starfighter! Beautie! Steeljack! El Hombre!)

Yeah, the "Hindu Kush" thing was odd, given she looks CELTIC or maybe "White Russian" (given her name), but maybe it was another nod to the comic-book tropes where nearly ALL the "hidden tribes/racial groups" somehow almost all looked like Western Europeans, no matter w...

Re: Earth - 25: DC Adventures Campaign Setting

Having read this over again, I really like the treatment you gave, often with just the right amount changed to fit your timeline and setting details. Because of depressing real-world family matters (caring for aging loved ones), I don't post nearly as often, but would you be open to others (myself i...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Starfighter! Beautie! Steeljack! El Hombre!)

The Tarnished Angel storyline was essentially a mash-up of the Flint Marko/Sandman reformed villain period (when he became a good friend to Ben Grimm and Spider-Man), and the the Henry Pym/Yellowjacket "psychotic break/infamous Jan-slap" plots, but sadder and more sentimental, though at le...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jack-In-The-Box! Mister Drama! Weirdies! The Dark Age!)

Due to Busiek's chronic health issues AND the details-rich style of his Astro City stories, the long, long breaks between issues essentially KILLED any anticipation of that particular arc for me, as by year four I had to go back and refresh my memory of what happened in the interim issues that set C...
