Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jimmy Woo! Marvel Boy! Venus! Gorilla-Man! 3-D Man!)

The fact that one of the least interesting and least capable characters from the team was given the powers of the Iron Fist despite, unlike Danny, not having earned it or having any connection with K'un-Lun is ridiculous and frankly insulting to the character and the fans. Oooooh don't get me start...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Marvel Boy! Venus! Gorilla-Man! 3-D Man! White Fox!)

For such utterly obscure, C-list characters, the Agents of Atlas have inspired some sweet pieces of artwork!

All my best!

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Frasier! Roz! Martin! Niles!)

I don't usually comment on your TV sitcom builds, but yeah, Bebe is an awesome character-just so totally over the top and hilariously awful in her behavior; and it was genuinely funny how the writers played up hints that she was somehow TRULY diabolical-Frasier and Roz smelling brimstone before she ...

Re: Super Hero RPG Fanzine

Certainly you can handwrite it-I might suggest trying to recruit another contributor or two, to keep you workload a bit smaller (and prevent excessive hand-cramps, honestly), but you WILL have to make sure the handwriting of all involved is legible and relatively attractive. I might recommend doing ...

Re: Ember Point (Latest Update - Count Conjuro)

i really, really like Count Conjuro, and I'm in agreement with Davies about not seeing enough redemption stories in OC biographies, though there are plenty of face-heel turns. Nice work!

All my best.

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

I'm afraid I was having just a bit of minor fun teasing a "spoiler", Ares (hint: there's a much bigger revelatoin in the movie, for those who don't know it already). You know, the other reason I enjoyed the Holiday Special is that James Gunn didn't feel the need to step on dramatic or poig...

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)...

Re: The Phoenixverse (A 2e OC 'verse; Newest: The Champions! The Stars! Gunsmith! Megagirl! Arriba! Nega! Alsea! Countes

You really excel at world-building; the bits of alternative history, extended character backgrounds/legacies, and even mysterious lore helps make your setting seem a lot more, well, real. It may be a world run by superhero tropes, but your talent for consistency and internal logic makes that work. V...

Re: The World In The Aftermath (Formerly A World Less Magical)

Both the Horned God and the All-Traitor are instantly memorable to me, though perhaps more as high-fantasy creatures than characters belonging to the superhero genre. The Adradius is evocative of Prince Gaynor the Damned, the Eternal Traitor of Michael Moorcock's (rather endless) books, while the Ho...

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

The Primal Force book held my interest for a little while, but it just seemed to meander a bit too much, and the Big Evil Scheme which was unfolding throughout the length of the book's short run just sort of came to nothing...basically the cabal of occultists do kill off a couple team members (Golem...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Fire Emblem Builds Complete! The Princess Bride!)

The documentary on Andre has some interviews with his Princess Bride co-stars. Apparently this man who was so strong in his prime that he could genuinely terrify pretty much any wrestler was in such a bad physical state and in so much pain when he filmed the movie that he couldn't even lift Robin W...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Demon-Eater Cyborg! Geo-Borgs!)

Your last few posts are what gets tedious with RIFTS...variants and variants of the same O.C.C.s and armor/weapons/vehicles, instead of focusing on the sheer, wonderful insanity of the setting. That and the power-geeking, coupled with Siembieda's insistence on doing everything the way he's always do...

Re: The Phoenixverse (A 2e OC 'verse; Newest: The Champions! Starman! Starwoman!)

The Star-Family saga is really a great bit of storytelling. You managed to invoke several classic moments from the history of American comics while presenting them in a novel, consistent context. There are elements of the Silver, Bronze, and Modern Ages, with great triumphs and sacrifices accompanie...
