    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
  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. EDIT: For some f--king reason the damn forum won't let me post the Harlan Ellison video I wanted to post. It also won't let me delete this post. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. How is this different from schizophrenia? I could see the media or some pop-psychologist (Dr. Phil?) calling it that, but I can't see this becoming a separate disorder. At least not for several years and not necessarily by that name. FTR, I am not a psychiatrist (I don't even play one on TV ?) so I could be wrong.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. "Mar-Tha." Two syllables and they're suddenly best friends.
  8. 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):
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Two reviews: BTW, I'm not the Andrew he refers to.
  12. Thanks. There's more, but I have to recharge my batteries for the rest.
  13. 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
  14. Son of a @#$%&*#@! I had that book! And I gave it away! Without reading it!
