  2. Re: Create a Villain Theme Team! Advocate is mentalist who "persuades" security guards to leave doors unlocked and take sudden coffee breaks. In her secret identity as a criminal defense lawyer, she tries to get Escape Clause's clients released through mundane (but expensive) means. If that fails, the team goes into action.

  6. Re: Seeking Deckplan Sources (Semi Traveller Hero Related) Here are some maps for the "Alien Trilogy" video game. They cover the ship, but one room at a time. I'm not sure how similar they are to the movie layout. http://www.hiveseeker.com/maps.html

  10. Re: Baseball-related characters in comics/games? The Fastball killed by OMAC was part of a lame villain team called the Cadre. According to Who's Who in the DC Universe, he was "a former minor league baseball player , then syndicate assassin, whose exoskeleton armor and power gloves give him the ability to throw high-velocity metal spheres of great explosive power." He later got a flying "home plate" that worked kind of like the Green Goblin's glider. The Cadre is pictured at the URL below under the entry for Black Mass. Fastball is the chump in yellow. http://www.moviepoopshoot.com/comics101/136.html Kevin Matchstick from Mage carries Excalibur in the form of a baseball bat. http://scoop.diamondgalleries.com/news_images/845_1660_3.jpg Casey Jones from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles likes to hit people with baseball bats, hockey sticks, etc. http://www.derok.net/derok/tmntbios2.html Boomerang was kicked out of the majors for "taking bribes," presumably for throwing games in which he played. http://www.marvel.com/universe/Boomerang This list of sports supers includes a baseball section: http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Dungeon/2864/Super_Sport.html

  12. Re: Marvel's Best Martial Artists My top ten: 1. Captain America 2. Shang Chi 3. Mantis 4. Taskmaster 5. Iron Fist 6. Karnak 7. Steel Serpent 8. The Cat (Shen Kuei) 9. White Tiger 10. Colleen Wing I'm assuming that Snake-Eyes and Stormshadow don't count as real Marvel characters, even though Marvel used to publish the G.I. Joe comic.
