  1. Now, now. Don't go dissing bacon.
  2. What do you get if you have 64 feet and 14 teeth?
  3. The only surprise there is that it's 15 klicks away, and not closer. Aren't Starbucks spaced like 100 yards apart?
  4. The Batman punching bag... that punches back. NT: Surprising results of the first flight of Ingenuity (the NASA helicopter on Mars) - other than seeing its own shadow, foretelling six more weeks of Martian winter.
  5. Had a laugh while watching Thunder Force last week, when they showed the classroom with a sign saying that if miscreants (their term for supervillains) were sighted, "DUCK AND COVER!"
  6. Many thanks, all, for the input. I know much of it will make its way into the character and the game. Tjack, I'll have to look for such a picture. LL, I'll have to check out those Superman cartoons. Thanks for the link. Amorkca, great idea about the accent. Dr. Argon has dissociative identity disorder due to the trauma of his origin story (I'm giving him Accidental Change in stressful situations), so having the Zarkon identity sounding so distinctly different will be a great touch. And the 'z' thing in his speech fits very nicely. Pinecone,
  7. I'm creating a "mad scientist" character for my new Champions campaign. A lab accident drove Dr. Zachary Argon around the bend and he now thinks he's Zarkon (alternately, Dr. Zarkon / Lord Zarkon / Dark Lord Zarkon / Baron Zarkon / Duke Zarkon). Personality-wise, I see him as a mad scientist type villain from an 1950s sci-fi serial. I'm aiming for "over-the-top" here. Unfortunately, I was born too late and didn't see a lot of Flash Gordon or his ilk growing up. (Though I do acknowledge the similarity of his name to Dr. Hans Zarkov, formerly of NASA...) The picture below is wha
  8. Way back in the first Champions campaign I played in, 1st edition rules. Midnight was a blind brick martial artist. 60 STR, and IIRC for martial arts you paid your STR in points and got a punch for 1 1/2 x STR damage, and a kick for 2x STR damage. And Haymaker was IIRC 1 1/2 x damage. We were going up against a group that included a guy whose entire schtick was defense. Basically, nothing hurt him, ever. (He had like a 3 SPD and one attack he could use something like twice a day.) The villains had taken down all the heroes except Midnight, and he's facing off against the defe
  9. Borders book store. My family and I spent a ton of time there. Comic book racks at the 7-11. Rumble seats
  10. Let's go down to the five-and-dime. I can't tell you about it on the phone - it's a party line. - - - - - - One day years ago we were having trouble finding our cordless phone, and my daughter (then in elementary school) said, "They should make phones that are attached to the wall, so you can't lose them."
  11. Unfortunately not. I had: All Shook Up (as I Vant Your Blood) Hound Dog (as Blood Hound) Heartbreak Hotel (as Undead Hotel) Blue Suede Shoes (as Blood Red Shoes) Jailhouse Rock (as Vampire Rock) - - - - - - - - In my new campaign (set in San Francisco), one of the PC heroes owns a series of pet spas, so for the intro adventure I introduced the New Peace Armada, a cause-of-the-week team from the Villain Theme Teams thread. Their cause that week was animal rights, and they decided to "free" all the pets, as well as let loose all the animals at t
  12. Well, supporting democracy certainly seems to run counter to the Trumpster portion of the GOP.
