So, basically, you you just -cant- ignore me.

To be fair, this board was downright readable back when we could put you on 'ignore'.

Carmen Sandiego

Iota (Milestone)


Lucifer (The Wicked + The Divine)

Ghost (Dark Horse)


Zephyr Queen

Talia al Ghul

Why waste time looking around like an idiot when you can take Castle Doom home with you and strip it down for parts? Bonus points if you can send it back pink once you're done with it.

If Squirrel Girl and Liz Sherman both qualify, I figured Spitfire should just about make it in.

Unless Reed can find something in his pockets to exploit Carnage's weaknesses, he'll be moderately inconvenienced for a while.

Holden Carver

At the very least, either might get a draw.

Nerd it up here, basically.

ICT / Drizzt Do'Urden runs the Drizzt gauntlet
« on: June 22, 2018, 04:46:56 PM »
For the most part, anyway. Some of these may either fit the basic archetype better then Drizzt specifically, or be here mainly just to fill the numbers, but mostly these are all dark, pale, brooding reflections of his own self he'll be murdering, if not the other way around.

Despite being called a gauntlet, fights are all completely stand-alone affairs. Feel free to break things down further into categories if you see the need, or to add whatever tormented sword and sorcery type you feel we're missing here (hell, half your game library should fit).

Benedict of Amber (generic equippment; equal arms; no magic and/or panthers)

Duncan Idaho (again, pure swordfight, on the principle that he's basically Zaknafein)

Elric of Melnibone

Himura Kenshin (anime only)

Jeff Smax (w/ singing sword again, for whatever that might be worth)

Sethra Lavode

Anomander Rake

Vampire Hunter D

Yes, that was the take-home message.

Sorry, that came off snarky. But I think it’s a good example of what people are objecting to with Marvel the last few years. Spider-Man is the ultimate hero for the little guy. He’s a nerd empowerment story. His motto is iconic for its universal message of personal responsibility and looking out for one another. And a purple-haired gender studies student tells him that’s all wrong, and class warfare is the answer. And he eats it up. It’s like a parody.

Fwiw I didn’t hate Slott’s run. I dipped in and out but it certainly had good points. But an example from his run specifically was killing off Electro for and replacing him with... female Electro, who dresses exactly like him, for the most contrived reasons.

I honest to fuck can't begin to imagine what you thought your message was, but yes, I figured it was well worth pointing out your example of relevant "SJW themes" in Spider-Man is actually a dated reference from an altogether different title which served its actual themes pretty fucking well (and isn't even particular to "social justice" discourse in any meaningful sense in the first place).

Keeping this here because I didn't see your edit earlier (the preview window doesn't seem to update properly upon refresh) and it does hit on most of what I'd have wanted to address, if in an overly agressive tone.

For what it's worth, Runaways was a book about teenaged angst and rebellion, and the scene hits those themes rather well, as far as I'm concerend. The fact that people are upset about a somewhat out of context scene where Spider-Man isn't immediately offended by a kid attempting to turn a phrase is, if anything, a good example of the outrage culture they are meant to be protesting.

I'd say a little more about the merits and demerits of daring to criticize a nerd icon, but I'm on the phone and this is taking forever as it is.

Really? A twelve year old scene from Runaways is what's wrong with modern Spider-Man?

The Mastermind
Doctor Doom

The Dragon

The Pet Mad Scientist

The Brute

The Token Woman

A mildly implausible group brought together by a common interest, these are, of course, Storm's League of Evil Exes. Honorable mentions are too numerous to mention.

The Darkness II (yes, based on the comic book) is free on Humble Bundle for ~40 hours "while supplies last". Get it if you're Greek and lonely.

Valeria Richards
Black Panther
Nick Fury
Jane Foster

I'll type it out a little later if I have the time, but it's all fairly straight forward, I should think.

By humans I MEAN people like Doom,Batman,Stark,Bb,Cap and so on(DC is allowed).

Can you clarify that a little? Are Doctor Strange, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel, et al. "human" for these purposes? It seems like you're drawing a distiction based on durability as much as anything else (Doom's the only one listed with powers on any meaningful scale), but I'd like to be sure.

ICT / The Metabaron vs. The Emperor of Mankind
« on: March 23, 2018, 10:27:12 PM »
The Metabaron accepts a commission from the Emperoress, ostensibly to remove a powerful pretender, but really just to flush out our resident Eurotrash. Using one-sided prep time and forgoing the Bushitaka if necessary, can he destroy the cosmic Archie Bunker?
