    Moved to Canada from Jamaica when I was one year old. Been living on and off in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) since then.

    I have two half brothers and too many relatives to list (scattered throughout the US and Canada with a few in Britain).

    Started my passionate love affair with comic books when I was five, thanks to George Reeves and former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman (long story). Started role-playing with 2nd edition Champions. Been an off and on vegetarian/vegan for the past 4 years.

    By the way, the Scott Pilgrim movie was wrong. Vegans are sworn to only use our mighty superpowers for justice while hiding from a world that secretly hates and fears us.

    Actually, that's a lie. The world just looks at us and thinks "meh." :-)

  1. Off the top of my head (and in no particular order): 1. Spider-Man (Sam Raimi version) 2. Superman the Movie 3. Avengers 4. Wonder Woman 5. Green Lantern Kidding! 5. Captain America: Civil War Also, I'm not supposed to say this, but I wasn't enthused about Black Panther. It was good, but, as of this writing it isn't one of my favourites.
  2. Why would having an opinion get you banned? There's an entire thread on the board called Destroy Your Geek Cred that's entirely about stuff like this. As far as the Dark Knight Trilogy, yeah it's okay, but not great. I could name 5 comic book movies and 10 "mainstream" movies that are better. That's just off the top of my head.

    Luthors Masterplan in Batman vs Superman

    "Mar-Tha." Two syllables and they're suddenly best friends.

    Favorite Moments from "Babylon 5"

    I have 3 favourite scenes (and honestly, it's hard to limit it to just three). First is the "Battle of the Line" speech. Every time I hear it, I get chills. This is the worst case scenario. This is the moment when it looks as if the human race is about to go extinct and no one is going to save us. Next is this. Almost everything that happens in the series hinges on the answer to one simple question: "What do you want?" The last, I can't find. It's from the episode, "And the Sky Full of Stars". It was Sinclair's answer about why the Minbari surrendered at the Battle of the Line. "Maybe the Universe blinked. Maybe God changed his mind." THAT was the episode that made me think that this was more than a low rent Star Trek knockoff. It made me realize that this was something special.

    Wonder Woman

    Well, somewhere hot just froze over. I found someone who didn't like the movie. Just don't tell him about the boats, tanks or planes. We wouldn't want to give the poor man a heart attack.
  8. I can believe a lot of stuff in comics. I can believe that no one at the Daily Planet can figure out the connection between Clark Kent and Superman. I can believe that the best scientific minds in the Marvel Universe can't treat a gunshot wound. I can believe that a guy with an 80-100 ft. long cape can manage to not get it caught in anything. However, you've strained my credulity way too far with that one.
  9. Billy Batson ("Shazab!") How about John Carter? After everyone on Barsoom passed away (except for a lone Green Martian named J'onn J'onnz) John decided to fight crime using the manly fighting skills he learned on Mars. Or Tony Stark. He uses the Batman identity to hide from Disney's cadre of ninja lawyers and as a way of testing non-Iron Man related tech.

    Golden Age Champions Discussion Thread

    Sorry, I don't know if anyone posted this (I'm too lazy to go through 10 pages of posts), but has anyone see this? I've been reading the old "Monster Society of Evil" story line on here. This site would make a good reference point if you wanted to make period appropriate stories. Sadly they don't have any of the old Timely/Atlas (Golden Age Marvel) or National Periodicals (Golden Age DC) comics. They do have the old Marvel Family comics (Fawcett), Archie/MLJ, and Quality.

    Destroy Your Geek Cred!!

    You're not missing much. I've seen the first, second, fourth, and fifth movies. None of them are worth your time. I like the books, but if you don't care for them, the movies aren't much better
