Loved box, especially his second armor. So cool.

But man, was he overpowered. Especially when he could make the armor any size he wanted.

Matthew,

Kara doesn't. But her old man did with his other kids and they joined together to mind wipe people. That's how no one remembers Matt Murdock is Daredevil.

Ah Ok. I picked up Alpha Flight with #49, then went and got back issues. Her intoduction of being in the bathtub trying to wash the purple off may have been an analogy for a woman's first period, but that crying in fear and wondering what she did wrong pulled at my heart strings. Mix that with a power that lends itself to abuse, and her trying to be a hero... she was my favourite Alphan of that time, right after Madison Jefferies.

Freehold,

Technically he hasn't. He's just not able to update his knowledge as quickly as he could. Now he just does it the old fashioned way. I mean I don't think he could build a transwarp gateway into the Negative Zone, but at the same time, I do think he could build his own tank.

I think his power was 'knowledge by osmosis' His ability to edictic memory it is apparently just 'normal' edictic memory.

Huh. Just found out that 'Death of Oracle' is now back in continuity. Looks like Babs-as-Oracle is a bit longer this time

Amusingly, I still hold Deathstroke is the best book DC has.

There is an interview on Newsarama with the writer and he said this

Quote:

Absolutely. It has fairly big repercussions. What we're going to be exploring is, what defines Wally West? Dare I say, as a Flash, he's kind of redundant, right? We've got other speedsters. But what defines Wally West?

I think there's always been a sense that, although he's happy to be back and to be a member of the Titans and with his friends - he has no life. He has no identity beyond being a member of the Titans. Everything he knew is gone. He's got no personal life, no private life.

And now he's in danger of even losing the things that defines him, which is that he's a Flash.

So this is going to have fairly big consequences for him.

Wally's entire arc since he returned - being lost in the timestream, not knowing who he is, losing his life (in terms of his personal life) - are really going to start to play out in the next few issues.

Ok that's just lame.

"Well we took away his family, his past and his life. So now it's an issue he has no life."

Sovereign Court RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32, 2010 Top 8

His turn in Nightwing was more of the 'false bravado' Damien we've seen, the banter with Dick was a mix of the cocky 'I am the TRUE heir to the Bat' mixed with the kid who missed running with Dickbats and needing to prove himself, well, to Dick. Yes the annoying Damien cockiness was there, but it was overwhelmed with the banter between them.

The Teen Titans Damien is insufferable.

@Thomas what is really annoying is there was a bit in Titans when he surprised Superdad by outrunning him. True this is before the 'timeline heal' bit but Supes didn't think Wally could move that fast, implying he was faster than Barry.

I was disappointed in the ending of Lazarus contract too. Which is a shame. I think Deathstroke is the best book in the market right now.

And yes. I loved Damien in the recent Nightwing book, then we get this.

Hmm, someone editing Conner out actually seems to hint at a time Trapper/Superboy Prime angle. With Bart and Conner out of the picture, he had a grudge against both.

Yeah but I assumed it would be on Wally West (the old one's) Time table. Not Deathstroke's.

Also of note, the flashback was Wally, Lilian, Donna, Roy, Garth, and Dick. Kory, Victor Gar and Victor weren't there.

I'd love to see more "non-Japanese" weapons from Asia.

Edit 1: I guess I should make a list and link to info/pics.

Edit 2: On the off-hand, this book would also be a good place to detail more weapons from non-humans (elves, dwarves, halflings, araneas, etc.).

For that matter, I'd love to see some 'half' weapons. "Great Scimitar: This weapon was developed by Half Orcs who liked the power of the falchion but preferred the option to use it one handed." (basically that would be a refluffed katana, but weapons made to play to the half breed's strengths is my thought.)

Not following Wonder Woman, but I am interested in this 'two year plan' for REbirth. Looks like Action Comics, Titans, The Flash and Wonder Woman are the flagships for that.

I'm enjoying Deathstroke, well except for Jericho's apparent bisexuality.

Supernatural darkness counteracts dark vision though the premise is correct. In that tier range its not unheard of and even then there is a better spell than deeper darkness for shenanigans.

I missed the 'see through supernatural darkness feat'. Though an elixir of darksight does the same thing. My characters often keep one on the 'utility belt'.

Here is why this half-drow stuff is such a bad idea. I ran a 7-11 game tonight (playing down, four-player adjustment). I had a player with a half-drow Shadowdancer (Level 8 character) that had darkvision, a Stealth skill of +29 (with something that let him take 10 on stealth in combat for a 39), Spring Attack, Hide in Plain Sight and able to cast Deeper Darkness and actually still see in it while doing all this Spring Attacking. I didn't catch any of this until we were almost an hour into the game, just assumed it was a half-elf shadowdancer. I stated that I was pretty sure that half-drow were not PFS legal.

The player swore that he had done the research and everything was PFS legal. Not wanting to hold up everything and eat up a bunch of time, I took him on his word and let him play the scenario with this obviously broken-ass character that I now realize wouldn't survive 30 seconds of GM auditing.

So if you want to know why allowing drow and half-drow is a bad idea, take it from me, this kind of thing is going to be everywhere is no time flat.....

Just wanted to pipe up, I'm finally getting to play a vanguard in our Strange Aeons game.

Couple of questions, one of which I know I've asked.

1) When the Vanguard can chage energy type, he still can use the force blast, right? So at third it becomes Force or (fire/cold), at 5th it's Force or (fire/cold) or electricity, right? I just don't see the draw in giving up force for an energy type permanently.

2) IS it ok to talk about the coding in the .user file on the Herochat forums? Ive been using my meager Herolab skills to tweak the vanguard .user file (I have the blast now showing Cha mod + 3 times, for example). x I don't want to publicly tweak someone's work, but will send the finished file to Owen if he wants to review it.

I don't want Felton to be Alchemy for the same reason I didn't want Eddie to be the Reverse Flash in the first series....making the bad guy's identity be the unlikeable guy the hero already knows is lazy and stupid and overused.

You gave me an interesting thought if Felton is going to be a recurring character...

Felton found the alchemy stone and it put him in touch with his alt/empowered counterpart. But instead of dreams, it gives him... a split personality. Flash ends up beating Dr. Alchemy and saving Felton, and in exchange Felton becomes a fan of the flash, while still being a jerk to Barry. Think Flash Thompson.

That would be something new for the series.

It is a work of fiction, so conspiracy theories seem like a better fit on the show than they do in the real world.

True, they'd not need nearly as much evidence as exists in the real world.

Kafar and Nefti also appear in the first and last parts of the Devil We Know tetralogy, all the way back in season 1. They were up to no good back then, too. Having played Destiny of the Sands first and Devil We Know later, I wondered why we still trusted them.

I've found their survival in DotS depends on if the players have played DWK. After playing DWK, I wanted a DWK V, Die Aspis Die!

I do like the Lois Lane story on reading it. They touched on her being older, but not how she kept people from noticing. Also enjoyed Kal-el teasing her about her having a 'secret identity'.

Also am enjoying Deathstroke, primarily for Rose I'll admit. Damian's comment about a Hmong girl using katana made me laugh.

I almost felt like they were saying "This is the happy cheerful universe. Zack Snyder was never born on this earth."

Pet Peeve is that M'gann's actress is as old as me. I like M'gann being younger. Kara's age or younger.

Olie "We're getting our asses kicked by these dominators. We need help!"

Barry "I got this." Runs off.

I agree with Charles. I think if people found out about ways to make themselves on or just below par of what Superman can do, it's basically bringing out a Super Hero arms race that Batman wouldn't want to deal with. See - Kingdom Come.

Also Tim isn't dead. He's just stuck right now between plot holes.

Yeah I was just keeping his status redacted. It is an interesting concept though, if she becomes Red Robin and Tim comes back, having two red robins like two flashes or all the green lanterns.

Tim will be back. I'm hoping the two year plan pans out.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

just to add... I think Night of the Monster Men is 'writing to the trades' The three books had their 6 issue runs (about the size of a TPB) and this crossover takes 6 issues. So in addition to setting up "I am Suicide" it also is a self contained story, of the whole Bat Team (minus Barbara, but that's ok in this case)

I am holding out hope DC holds to its 'two year plan' with these books.

Gotham girl tangent:

I find the, intentional or not, parallels to Grant Wilson interesting. Both were motivated by family (Grant idealizing Deathstroke, Clair and her brother by the deaths of their parents and Batman's appearance) both made deals for powers that would/will eventually kill them, and both being motivated to prove themselves to their idols. I find myself worrying about Claire, primarily because of 'comic book death'. She's more likely to die and stay dead than Bruce, Dick, Babs, even Alfred and Jim Gordon. In the short time we've seen her I've grown attached, and really hope Bruce can save her, not just from the Psycho Pirate's manipulations but from her own powers.

Just like Ahsoka, Rex, Fives and the characters from Clone Wars you don't see in Revenge of the Sith, Clair's fate is more compelling. Will she live? Will she die? Will she stabilize as 'supergirl lite' or will she be powered down? I'd love to see her take up the Red Robin mantle, since Tim is <redacted>.

Aber,

The kid in the cave is Duke Thomas, the kid that found out Bruce was Batman from Year Zero. He was in the We are Robin, yes, but he's kind of upgraded himself into a secondary assistant for Batman instead of a Robin.

Gotham Girl is from the first issues of Batman Rebirth. As for the inter-title thing, this is just for a one time series thing dealing with Hugo Strange and his apparent obsession with monsters. That plus Psycho-Pirate play a role too.

The crossover makes sense in the build up for I am suicide.

I've enjoyed Nightwing Tec and Titans.
