    Tjack got a reaction from Khas in Superhero Pocketa are the worst!   
    In the Silver Age he used to compress his Clark Kent clothes down to wafer size and keep them and his glasses in a pouch in his cape. They were treated with a special chemical to keep from wrinkling.  That’s why his suit was always blue, shirts white and his tie red.
        The belt buckle contained his JLA communicator.

    Have your henchman begin firing up an outdoor grill using both charcoal and sweet woods (chefs choice) while you mix one third pound sirloin burger, one third veal and one third pork with one whole egg and one yolk spices to taste (salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, etc.) 
       Divide into patties making sure to indent the middle (the thinner middle insures that the middle and the ends receive the same amount of doneness. Cook to preferred doneness...unless someone requests “well done. Then request volunteers to help restrain the sinner and mark him with a red hot spatula. 
      Meanwhile the henchman shall prep Sweet Hawaiian rolls with melted butter for toasting on the grill. Place them to be done in time with the burgers. Assemble your creations and place them on the table next to fresh “fixins”  onion and tomato slices, ketchup, mayo, a good quality BBQ sauce etc 
        Enjoy.

    I will always remember him as Roper from Enter the Dragon. While he wasn't a master at martial arts like Bruce Lee or Jim Kelly, he was indeed pretty skilled karateka and judoka. He once related a story about a conversation with Bruce Lee. Lee described himself as a martial artist who acted. Saxon replied that he was an actor who did martial arts.

    I see in the other comments on this thread a lot of concentration on including everything that’s happened before and what the future history should include.   There seems to be not enough consideration on what’s happening NOW.  
       IMHO the most successful reboots in comics were the first ones. The beginning of the Silver Age with the Flash and the one that took place after the original Crisis on Infinite Earths.  In each the main focus was on what was being used now, not what was being left behind. Things became too complex only when every story idea of the past had to be made a part of current history.
      It’s more important to decide what fits in today, what makes sense for a new group of characters who exist currently. If a character or organization doesn’t make sense now then it has to be sacrificed.  UNTIL, PRIMUS, VIPER etc. must be shaped for the world as it exists not how it was in the ‘70’s & ‘80’s when they were introduced in Champions or the ‘60’s & ‘70’s when their archetypes appeared in the comics.  The Marvel Movies versions of SHIELD and the origin of Iron Man are good examples of updating for the current day.
      If this is a serious conversation about new product for a new audience you have to be willing to “kill your babies” in the writers parlance. Meaning if something doesn’t fit into the world as it is it must be laid aside in favor of new ideas that will.

    Well with a high Pre and Supergirl as a model it sounds like she’s very pretty. How about in addition to her villain Hunted, you add  a paparazzi style reporter who followed her around for a Watched.  Somebody always looking to get an embarrassing picture or up skirt shot of her flying away.   Kind of a new millennium version of Silver Age Lois Lane bugging Superman.
       With basically two secret ID’s this knob could be a real danger to her.

    Tjack reacted to Lord Liaden in Reboot the CU Uuniverse, WWYD?   
    It should be noted that DOJ Inc. did just that when it took over the Champions IP. For example, VIPER's history, structure and personnel were greatly redefined, while DEMON was rendered nearly unrecognizable from its previous incarnation. Genocide was replaced by the smaller and less provocatively-named Institute for Human Advancement, and the whole "anti-mutant" dynamic in the CU was significantly reduced. Many long-standing Champions groups and villains were excised, e.g. Terror Inc, VOICE, Raven, Sanctuary; while many new ones were introduced, often to fill specific genre niches, like ARGENT and the Trismegistus Council. The present-day CU was given a much more thorough and coherent historical and social context. And on and on.
     
    Some of these changes were controversial to the Champs fan base when they were introduced, and I guarantee that any future rebooting of the CU would be met with the same degree of criticism and resistance, even if folks participating in this thread reached a consensus.
