Capable leader, mentor, and strategist, Cable will find the winning play in ways many won’t expect or anticipate. He also has a lot of input from the likes of his First Officer, Engineer, Tactical, Navigator, Secruity Officer, Etc. that he needs to sort through and I think Cable can synthesize the information they provide and come up with the most effective strategy. Can lead from the front as well as anyone here.

First Officer
The one who well make things gel. Cable can be gruff and to the point, Nightwing is there to get everyone to play nice, make the crew work together like a finely tuned machine. Also a very capable leader in his own right, he can take point on things that are more focused while Cable sorts out more broad moves.

Operations Officer
Maria Hill
While Nightwing can make sure the strong personalities get on, Maria Hill is an expert on running the larger organizations similar to what one might find on a starship. She’ll make sure chain of command is respected and orders are carried out throughout the ship.

Moira McTaggert
She knows what she’s doing, has encountered alien physiology, has worked with Cable. She can handle just about any weird stuff that comes her way.

Brainiac 5
The guy is certainly smart enough to play any number of roles, but no one else on the ship can handle the tech the way he does, and so that’s primarily his focus, making sure everything works. He can lead but he’s 4th in command after Maria Hill should the others not be able to lead as while he has the head for leadership, he doesn’t have the same heart for it as the others.

The pilot of the carrier, her natural adaptation to flight serves her well in piloting this ship—she moves it as naturally as she flies on her own, a true extension of her will.

There are some amazing tacticians on this crew already, but Karnak is here to see the flaws in the plans, to bring up the things that others might not see. If there is a weakness in either the crews own plans or the defenses of an enemy, he will find it.

Doug Ramsey
The stars and planets and everything else speak a language. He can plan the best ways through, see the pull of gravity, the symphony of the endless void. Also good to have him with Cable leading again. His ability actually compliments Karnak's well and the two are known to spar, reading each other like few others can. Of course many on this crew can keep up with them in a fight, just not by the same means.

Security Officer
Bigby Wolf
The biggest fish out of water, he sticks to what he knows. Using his instincts to keep everyone safe. While some have special gifts for knowing tactics and strategy, Bigby’s not bad in this area either, but he also has a sense for danger—and it should it come down to it, he’s very hard to put down as he’s literally the big bad wolf when he needs to be.

And like so many on this ship, she can fight, but she can also be quite empathic in some portrayals. Also somewhat precognitive, another nice compliment to the strategic minds already assembled. When they have one of those meetings where Cable needs to get the take of all of his main officers,  there’s no doubt that he’s getting some of the best takes around.

This fight is akin to a skilled mouse w/ a cool shield vs Stone Cold Steve Austin

It’s an uphill battle for The Flash, not as much of one as it seems on paper —guy with one super power vs a guy with the same super power and 16 others —� but still an uphill battle. Both characters at their respective peaks however and I’d give it to the Flash. Though he usually doesn’t operate on those levels peak Flash is a physical conduit for seemingly the very essence of speed/motion/possibly time? But yeah, normally J’onn, so let’s call that 7 or 8/10?

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

I didn't watch it here, but nor did I miss it and my excitement is luke warm. The original may be my favorite movie, in part bc of Goldblum's stellar performance and dinosaurs, but that clearly isn't a guaranteed win: see JP2 The Lost World. I'd say they'd get my money anyways, but I'll have movie pass soon, so I'll sort of be able to work the system. Hope they don't just up the prices on it bc Movie Pass is an insane deal. That's right, Movie Pass. Just $10 low dollars a month for unlimited big screen viewings of everything from the Jurassic Park reboot to the Jumanji Reboot.

Oh I thought this went through, but then the warning came up that AP had beaten me to the punch to say pretty much the exact thing came up and so this has just been sitting on my computer unsent for the past whatever length of time. But yeah, what AP said all the way, here is my original content for you to smash that like button on:

MCU Spidey is too, green, pardon my pun. While I loved Homecoming, it did him no favors in terms of battle boards

edit: the warning came up again when I tried posting again cause Neo had posted--man what a popular fucking website we got going here guys!

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Re: JLU was the best superhero show ever?
« on: December 06, 2017, 08:36:44 AM »
I'd give the nods to. JLU-- the pinnacle of the evolution of the Timmverse which as a whole cant be touched.

Outside of Timverese, really only Avengers: EMH can hold a candle to them. Glad Marvel also finally did one really well. Not to say I didn't grow up loving Animated X-Men, but it's clearly a step down.
X-Love is all about being the right age where just a catchy tune was enough to set the mood, and then a fun bunch of mutants including the ever suave Gambit, the tough guy Wolverine, the ever crushable Rogue... It would only make sense at that age. The show holds up ok, but certainly not something I could see someone enjoying after being treated to better caliber super hero team shows like JLU and EMH.

Like with a lot of old threads, I have no memory of typing this but I agree with myself so hard

Yeah, I’m not super versed either. I just want to see Wyntyr do his Bane

Isn’t a berzerker a type of barbarian?

Excellent list, Uhtceare

Movie Loki would be an Illusionist/Rogue dual class

Movie Aldrich Killian would be a Monk/Barbarian dual class pretending (via proxy) to be a Wizard.

Classic Thor would be a Paladin. Modern comics and movie Thor would be a Barbarian.

Mandarin would be a Monk/Barbarian dual classer with weapons that mimic low-level Wizard levels.

Wolverine would be a high level Barbarian with a few levels in all the other melee classes, and an Epic melee weapon.

Some q’s

Loki seems more straight up Illusionist—no? One of the few that wouldn’t take too much fiddling with to build. Prob chose a racial hearitage to account for his stats.

Thor be it Berzerker or Paladin would need some Tempest connection—large part of the character. And he doesn’t rage out so much, so it’s tricky I think

Mandarin needs no Barbarian, I wouldn’t think—Id see him as several levels of Monk w/ a few levels of some kind of Wizard or Artificer, and then as you said, special items for Rings
