    Monsieur Vaillant, aka Mr. Valiant--Jacques Moreau, an All-American super-patriot from an alternate reality where North America was largely settled by the French.  The Americans declared their independence from King Louis in 1776, and with British aid the revolutionary armies led by Georges Beauchamp won their freedom.  When Napoleon's armies tried to reconquer the continent in the War of 1812, the Americans fought with all their might and defeated Napoleon, leading to his downfall.  Ever since then Les Etats-Unis have stood as a beacon of freedom, giving hope to all who would resist tyranny and oppression.
     
    Possessing the strength of twenty men, immunity to all but the greatest of harm, and "the courage of America's teeming millions,"  Monsieur Vaillant is the embodiment of America's esprit de combatif, and wherever innocents are threatened, whenever liberty is endangered, he is there to protect the innocent, destroy those who would bring them harm, and set wrong to right.

    This is much more creepy to anyone following The Walking Dead--and while it's based on something that happened last season, the "cookie speech" from the most recent episode (3-8) makes it that much more creepy--

    I've finally come to the conclusion that the A-10s and CAS mission should be given to the Army and/or Marines.  Along with the funding.  If the USAF hates the job that much, let's give it to someone who'll do it right.

    Well, if you had absolute power, would there be a need for new weapons?  Because if you had absolute power, you could abolish war as a means of settling disputes domestically and internationally, because the whole world would be one people, one nation under your absolute control.  There would be no need of weapons of war, because there would be no war.
     
    Unless you planned to keep war going as a means of keeping the people impoverished, as per Orwell's 1984.
     
    Just thinking about things.

    Many posts ago I put upon this thread a less-than-lethal weapon called the JPX Defender, which allowed your characters to ruin an NPC's day without killing them.  Those who appreciated the weapon will undoubtedly be pleased to know there is now a four-shot version--
     

     
    Hope that helps.

    From what I remember, punt guns were generally used for market hunting.  I think they were usually 1-, 2-, or 4- gauge shotguns and were braced against the ground or a support structure in a boat and fired into flocks of waterfowl.  Flock flies off, dead birds are picked up, and the market hunter either reset in the same location or moved on to another spot to repeat the process.
     
    Essentially, a small cannon loaded with birdshot.  Nothing sporting about the practice--it was strictly business.

    Isn't Supergirl known for changing her costume frequently? They've got a built-in excuse to change it if it's not "working" on-screen.
