I really liked Ant-Man. It was fun, and it had good action and great visuals.
Quantum Realm was in my opinion amazing. It came out of nowhere and was such eldritch location.
More of my thoughts are here, for those of you who are interested. Tales to Astonish! (Loved that line)

My biggest mark against the movie trailer is it doesn't feel like the Ostrander Suicide Squad from that fat stack of back issue comics I got as a kid. Since the nu52 relaunch, the previews of the new SS comics just felt like the writers (and DiDio/Lee's inescapable shackles) were trying to retread the same ideas haphazardly/half-assed without understanding the why of how Ostrander's stories & characterizations worked.
Yeah, I have to agree to that. New 52 SS has not impressed me so far. There are good ideas and scenes there, but nothing really impressive. And I have not yet got to the New Suicide Squad books, which I have heard are a bit better. But you speak of the truth. It actually reminds me more of Assault on Arkham-animated movie. Which is not a bad thing, at least to me since I liked that movie. Ostrander-influences are certainly lacking-at least on the surface.

I have not seen Jay on...anything, now that I think about it so I have open mind for his performance. Or the new Robocop for that matter. Adewale has some experience working with heavy prosthetic as seen in Thor: The Dark World, and I believe he does a killer job. In one scene where they walk towards the camera you can see him tossing his head in very animalistic manner.
Katana might be locked up to prison because she killed somebody, and is the "hero" forced to work with the group of criminals. Or maybe she is Batman's mole on the squad, getting information about the squad and their missions.
That's actually a good theory. I had that idea as well, except that I did not connect it to the red capes are coming-thing. Yeah, Zod's body is gonna be Bizarro so fast. Or as Luthor calls him, Test Subject B-Zero. It's been a while since I read Birthright, should probably pick that up again.
Is this the first time an iconic has been explicitly related to another one?
Actually no, the Slayer's backstory has also familiar face there.
Meligaster is GREAT and I love the backstory. That is some supervillain s&@+ there. And the addition of Lem worked like charm. Mesmer is my favorite of the new classes and I hope my GM let's me play it sometime. Good work!
This scene really makes me laugh. I bet Digger just said something REALLY inappropriate or flirted with her. Even though I liked the Arrow's Captain Boomerang fine he was really far away from the comic book version. He was just another professional killer with grudge. This however seems much more closer to Digger Harkness of comic books that we love to hate.
I would love to hear what people think of this trailer and the movie BEYOND Joker and Harley.
I really like how the team looks. Deadshot's costume is on point. And I'm really excited to see Wil's performance. Killer Croc looks awesome, so great to see him in live-action movie. And my favorite Squad member Captain Boomerang looks just like the scumback he is. Next trailer better have him throwing some 'rangs! Also interesting to see how Slipknot fights in the movie. He seems to have some kind of rope-gun. Batman should sue. Really digging the Katana's look as well. She oozes threat and danger and I love that.
Amanda Waller also looks good, and her attitude towards the criminals is spot on. They are just tools for her.
I'm starting to think that the Enchantress might be the big bad of the movie. Trailer really focuses to her- she is exploring the cave, sitting in the pool of...something with markings above her and then in her full getup. And I can't see her in the group shots of the trailer. Either she is full villain, or being played by someone else.
I wasn't a fan of Jokers look for this movie until I saw the trailer. I'm on board now.
When I first saw the pics of him, I liked it okay, except for the tattoos on his head. After the trailer I was sold. Jared Leto is amazing, I can't see or hear anything of him from Joker. He is completely lost himself in the role. That is some mad skill.
And I really like it. It's only a teaser trailer, but it has great atmosphere. And I really like Harley, she is going to be one of the most interesting performances in this movie. As is the Joker, who I find really creepy. It really reminds me of the Grant Morrison's Batman R.I.P- era Joker.
So much looking forward to this. Captain Boomerang, you must make it alive to the end of the movie!
"The red capes are coming. Red capes are coming!"
That line boggles me. I think it's reference to superheroes in general, not to the Superman. Or it is the name of those Superman-logo wielding soldiers. Line that would have made more sense is "superheroes are coming!" since it sounds more mocking, fitting of Luthor's.

More importantly, why do some of the people reaching for Superman have freakish face paint on?
Apparently they are celebrators of the Day of the Dead, I read that the flowers on backgrounds are also part of the celebrations. Why Superman is there and why did they chose to do that....I don't know. Maybe homage to this?

Another confession: I'm horrible at seeing typos. But at least it was a funny typo.
I was reading my notes for the game today, and I was browsing trough my soundtrack album in spotify. Then this gem came along, and my mind went straight to Iron Gods. I will use this in my future campaign for sure.
This gem being the soundtrack for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD.
I can already hear some of the tracks playing in my mind when I'm reading the books.
"Brothers in Arms-" track? Lords of Rust, and specifically when they attack the fortress of Hellion. It just feels right.
Oh, and it apparently also has a dynamic day and night-cycle. That's always cool, and with open world foraging and hunting should really bring some interesting tactic options for taking down some of the machines. I looked quickly for some information, and main reason the robot animals are hunted is to get parts for equipment like weapons and stuff like that.
Guerrilla Games also promised that loading screens will not be included in the game.
For kellids, I mostly pick celtic names. I usually use sites like this to pick up names. I also meddle around them a bit. My latest kellid character is called Neema Tuathain de Danan. She was tiefling that was mistaken for aasimar, so they called her "from tribe of gods" - Tuatha De Danan in Irish mythology.
Also names from pulp-era fantasy novels or source books for pulp-style fantasy rpg are good. Conan stories especially.
Or sometimes I just pick up names that sound simple and non-elegant- Keela, for example, was just a word that sounded simple.
Of course, I'm a non-english speaker- my native tongue is finnish- so many words and names sound different to my ear.
GM: Second Darkness, Council of Thieves, Skull & Shackles
Player: Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne, Carrion Crown(cancelled mid-way), Jade Regent, Wrath of the Righteous (Currently playing)
AP in Planning: Serpent's Skull
Most Enjoyable: Now I have played many adventurers trough. For the record- I loved everyone I finished trough (Carrion Crown died out due scheduling conflicts and long periods of pauses). Well written and each had something great offer. But since I probably have to pick one.... let's see. Curse had awesome parts and great storyline and I loved my PC. Jade Regent was awesome journey with trio of great characters with each one completing each other perfectly. But I still have to choose Rise of the Runelords. It was the first AP I ever played, we had a ton of fun, our GM was on fire with characters and my two favorite moments in Pathfinder are in this AP- the ghouls in the fields and coming of Wendigo.
I love your work, the amount of detail on your work is astounding, but pain in the ass when painting miniatures :D
My question concerns my third favorite iconic, Shardra. Did you come up with her weird chainmail-cloak, or was that part of the character description? If it was your idea, is there any real-life basis to it?
