    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. Sorry to jump ahead and I don’t know if this has been addressed elsewhere. If so, apologies. Hero Games built a game to address these problems. It was called Champions: New Millennium (a.k.a. Fuzion) and most people (besides me) HATED IT. After that level of epic failure, why should Hero Games try anything like that again? Everybody says they want a simpler, faster version of Hero, but I honestly don’t see anyone here accepting it, not when Comeliness (the dumpstat to end all dumpstats) is so controversial. I mean if you were gonna streamline HS, what would you get rid of? What would you keep? And are the people here - the loyal customers - all gonna be okay with that? Will you gain more customers than you lose? Does anybody here want to put up their own money to test that?
  2. Outside of the art, I'm one of the few people who liked Fuzion. I never got to play Champions: New Millenium, but I really liked creating characters in that system. It just felt clean and streamlined in a way that HERO 3-5 never did.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Donna Brazile just threw Hillary under a bus (metaphorically speaking). https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/02/clinton-brazile-hacks-2016-215774 Reaction (NSFW, swearing):
  6. Or he could play a university philosophy professor who knows f--k all about philosophy or university.
  7. Just a radical thought here: Could we judge the movie after it comes out? It probably will suck (it was made way too late for Warner's to accurately judge the backlash against BvS), but we won't know for sure until the movie's released. Right now it exists in a state of quantum uncertainty. (Apologies to all the physicists on the board. High school physics bored the sh** out of me.) Also, why are people picking on Gal Gadot because of her figure? Has anyone gone after Hugh Jackman for not being short or Christopher Reeve for not looking like a '60s Curt Swan drawing?
  8. Okay, I really AM an evil person. Sorry. (NSFW. Mild swearing.)
  9. Unfortunately, I can't "like" your comment for another 24 hours.
  10. Am I the only one who has an immense feeling of schadenfreude? I am a very evil person.
  11. Wasn't she his adopted niece?
  12. That was kind of the default mode for Superheroes in the late 30s to early 40s. Yes, even for Superman. Then DC (National) realized that kids love these things and all of a sudden, Batman's deputized and Superman is telling his secret identity to the President. Because he needed someone to pretend to be Clark Kent and Batman wasn't available. I miss Silver Age DC.
  13. The writing doesn't bother me in the slightest. Yeah it's stupid, but it's not meant to be taken overly seriously. I can live with Supergirl's level of stupidity. I agree with you about Heroes. That was just beyond the pale.
  14. I liked this episode and I like the series overall. JMHO. YMMV. etc. etc.
