Finding a new source of food would give the Steelhawk a powerful economic lever to undermine the Lords of Rust. (... especially given that the Sellen Hills region is not especially rich agriculturally.)

How about having them persuade the heroes to go outside of the city and broker a deal with Sellen River fishermen, which of course would require solving a problem they might have (Such as Ghost Wolf barbarian raiders).

(The PC might also realize that such a move would set the Steelhawks up as a de-facto government in Scrapwall, so they may or may not be okay with that.)

This AP needs more Technic League.
(this also gives someone with the "Against The Technic League" trait some use of it.)

How about a recovery team (CR7)

  • 1 x Level 5 Wizard (The Elf Transmutter (NPC Codex p. 180) has the wrong spells and look, but should be adaptable.)
  • 1 x Gearsman (Fires of Creation p. 49)
  • 3 x Lvl 3 Warriors (NPC Codex p. 267)

    For five characters, add

  • 1 x Technic League Hireling (Numeria, Land of Fallen Stars, p. 61)

    Add them on the trip back from the haunted wreck (Area P), near Area 0 after the fog has been lifted (they moved in from the east while the heroes were in the ship).

    I'll be back if I can think of something else that you can add into scrapwall.

    Yes, but the rate of change is faster now (especially given the high Special Effects cost of Superhero films).

    For me, a strict power-gaming comparison comes down to the fact that the Wizard is one level faster than the Sorcerer in terms of his spellcasting progression. There are a whole ranged of nuanced points between spontaneous and prepared casting, but it's not enough to offset being a whole level behind. So, I say Wizard.
    Put against that the far more flexible casting style and use of metamagic, and greater number of slots, and the advantage is a bit questionable.

    In other words, both classes are well balanced (against each other at least.)

    Huntress? Zatanna?

    I was thinking Pamala Isly.

    That would be awesome. For heroes I'd vote Zatanna or Black Canary. And totally NOT just because I think she would look hot in fishnets.

    Actually, given how amazing Ms. Regan is at fight choreography, Black Canary would be awesome.

    I was also thinking that, since we know that Ben Affleck is making a Batman movie (and Joker/Harley are unavailable) that Bridget Regan as Poison Ivy (with an updated costume) would make a wonderful villain.

    What would have been epic is kind of a rehash of the Shwarma scene.

    Have all of the Avengers sitting around a table eating like, nachos, or something. Then just have Coulson end with, "And that is pretty much how I came back to life..."

    Only to have Thor raise his hammer and say, "One question Son of Coul... What does this have to do with this place that you call Tahiti?"

    Then Tony shakes his head, "Nuh uh, not buying it... What are you? Some kind of android? Robot? Life Model Decoy?"

    Then cut to black.

    That would have been 10,000 kinds of epic!

    (But I still would want the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. team piloting the carrier.)

    Through the first season, Coulson was all-but waving a sign announcing his alive-ness to the world, even telling agents of foreign powers, so if Iron Man, who is able to track down Spider-Man in his alternate identity, and Thor, who is friends with a dude who can hear the wool grow on a sheep's back from across the gulf of space, and Captain America, whom, along with Black Widow, has peeked at all of SHIELD's classified data, don't already know that Coulson is alive, it's because they've all gone blind and / or stupid.

    And Clark Gregg showing up in Age Of Ultron would have closed that plot hole. (And, HWalsh's suggested end bit still works.)

    The MCU never connected with the show either. All of the relationship was one way with movie events being channeled into the show, (presumably to promote the movie), but from the movie point of view, Agents of Shield, pretty much never existed. The events and characters of the show were never referenced in the movie universe, not that there was lack of opportunity to do so.
    There is one pretty big exception. Age of Ultron's new helicarriers to the rescue was a secret project Coulson was working on all season last year, it was never explicitly mentioned what it was until after the movie though.
    Or even SHIELD in general. If you ONLY go by the MCU, SHIELD was disbanded and shut down by Captain America and then the world. Having SHIELD show up later to save the day is a pretty weak cop-out if it's only a one way relationship. The show's whole focus was that the world thought them gone, but the've been here the whole time in the shadows waiting till they were needed.

    Having Colson and his team piloting the Helicarrier would have been all kinds of awesome!

    (And, no the movie should not explain how Colson is alive! In the end sequence have him explaining it to Thor, Cap, and Iron Man ... with the audience only getting the very end of that conversation.)

    They seldom recast the same actors for different characters in the MCU (though with some exceptions) though that would be awesome.

    Or alternately, an immortal superpowered clone of Dottie is more than acceptable. Dottie! *struggles as she is restrained and injected with something*

    The first season of Agent Carter was well done. It did a good job of setting up the early history of the Marvel Universe, and in particular tied the first Captain America movie in more tightly to the rest of the MCU.

    Moreover, it had a coherent plot, with a good theme and solid character growth.

    The second season was much weaker. A friend mentioned that if you watched the second season without having watched the first season, or the Captain America movie, the plot was in disarray and the setting was odd.

    There was a story there, but the second season writing meandered to the point that the story was lost. Also, the "need" to shoehorn in a romance did not help.

    As to Tony, here's the thing, I just don't care if people think that it's understandable that a person who saw what he saw would "snap" and do what he did in that moment. It still ruined the movie and the character for me regardless.

    First, from a meta perspective, it felt like cheap manipulation on the part of the film makers in order to throw the whole ideological difference the movie was built around out of the window and force a big final fight between the characters. (The villain's entire plan to get them all there to that point is also ridiculously convoluted and could and probably should have fallen apart multiple times along the way).

    Actually, It think it would have been hilarious (as a subversion of expectations) for Tony to have turned to Bucky and demanded his help to find the surviving people actually responsible.

    Of course, the climactic battle would have been between our heroes and the five other Winter Soldiers. Panther, of course, would need to actually track down Zemo.

    Lash was a total let down. This business about every Inhuman existing for a [specific] reason was bizarre enough to begin with: are terrigen crystals prophetic? HowTF do they know what's "needed?"

    But the team's eventual conclusion on what Lash was for...absurd! Way too specific. And even if that were his purpose all along, does that mean he can't do other things as well? He hurt Hive, and then just walked away. Finish him, you idiot!

    That was a neat and unexpected trick Lash pulled, but due to his idiocy he was only able to do it for one person before being killed. Are Inhumans programmed to self destruct once their one super-specific task has been accomplished?

    I did not like the episode.

    The idea that Lash was an "anti-body" to Hive would have made sense(with the Kree setting this into motion after they banished Hive).

    But Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has just wandered into "bad fan-fic" territory.
