Re: Jab's Builds: Great Beasts, Kkallakku, The Straw Man, Ny

Officially it was a retcon-type deal. Really though, it could almost take place in its own universe. The only points of connection to the main Marvel universe (that I remember offhand, I don't have the issues anywhere near me) were the use of the Daily Bugle as the major newspaper, and the mention o...

I think that picture of her is from her appearance in Marvel's Mystery Men series. That was a lot of fun. Any chance you've read that/will stat the characters up?

Batman: Assault on Arkham

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A10WL8xVUV4 Found the above link on Reddit. Thoughts? I know personally I'm disappointed that it seems to be heavily involving the Suicide Squad, as cool as they are, since this looks just so violently gritty. When i heard the rumors about an Arkham movie, I hoped it...

Looking for lists of Non-American Comics/Superheroes

Inspired by this column detailing giving a country a superheroic history based on it's own published characters, I'm looking to do the same for my own settings. I know I can Google and search Wikipedia myself, but I also wanted to ask the crowd here at the Think Tank if they know any non-American su...

Re: Training Origins.

I know I'm a step behind, but if you're looking for origins for Training heroes in Emerald City, you could say the expansion of the local AEGIS branch has caused a number of highly skilled field operators to arrive in the city.

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

I enjoyed the hell out of that episode until the last twist. I'm tired of the goddamn secrets between members of the main cast. I thought, for once, we might have them all on the same page and really being allies, but apparently that's not gonna happen any time soon. Honestly, the twist managed to l...

Winter Soldier Parallel in Freedom City?

So with Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters, I started wondering if there was a Winter Soldier-like character in Freedom City. To my knowledge there is not, in part because I don't think the Patriot ever had a Bucky-like sidekick in the first place. So has anyone created a Winter Soldier...

I thought it might have been Ratcatcher, given his handling of the rats, but I've checked and according to Arrow Annotations its an original character.

Re: The Crinoverse 3 (Villains of Emerald City)

This write-up makes them sound like the Sinister "Six" in Superior Foes of Spider-Man and that's awesome.

Re: Iconic Images

A lot of my favorites have already been shown, but there's one I haven't seen yet... unfortunately I couldn't find it online anywhere. It's from Alex Ross' JLA: Liberty and Justice , and I guess its more of a scene than a single image, but its the defining idea of Green Arrow for me. I remember it a...

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

I love this show and where its going. I know that no, it is not the Green Arrow of the comics, its really Batman with a bow, but I enjoy it all the same. And frankly, the more people he has around him who know his secret, the better Ollie gets. We might see a wisecracking bearded Green Arrow by the ...

Re: Why do superhero novels suck

Yeah, I'm going to stop you right there. No sentence that starts "The Punisher" has anything to do with a conversation about superheroes unless it is followed by the words "makes a terrible inclusion to a superhero universe & is not a superhero." :lol: I grant you that one. I am not particularly fo...

Re: [Green] Arrow TV Series

Actually, after the most recent episode, I could sorta see her doing it. She's been freed up from having to do a lot of other stuff, and seeing her train and overcome all the crap that's been dumped on her would actually make me give a crap again. The Deathstroke scene was one of the best parts of t...

Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher

So I just discovered this. Thoughts? Personally, I'm not sure if I like the art style or not.
