Re: Captain Marvel's costume

Nu-D - the realism is an interesting point - for me it comes to art-style rather than just costume design. I think of Captain America's costume that slowly evolved to a bit more functional with bells and whistles, and details but essentially the same design. Does it work in today's drafting/colourin...

Re: Marvel: "Warped" Draft

Ouch, some big hitting ideas that have played havoc with some of my considerations for the next two rounds. But kudos to all - brilluant creativity from everyone.

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

Introduced: I think it was the navy leotard but I can't be sure. When I first started reading stories with Carol in them regularly it would have been same costume but with the black tint. Favourite: Probably the black costume. Least favourite: Binary. Had no visual connections to any of her other ou...

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

Technically speaking token, the "Ms Marvel" costume you are referring to is usually called her "Warbird" costume. Ms Marvel tends to refer more to her original look. Strictly speaking wasn’t the navy version whilst she was still known as Ms Marvel, when it was black in the 90s it was under her Warb...

Love the Viruses. The Cuckoos were going to be one of my fall-backs (primarily for a really daft pun) for the next pick - but that idea is so much better...!

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

Tbh I was being somewhat petulant. Especially in regards to She-Thing. It's probably best her rock boobs were covered. Without getting too much into the rationale of why pretty much every superhero should be wearing more functional clothing, to me the black leotard was simply a cool outfit. The ligh...

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

I think it's only fair if we compare costumes where each gender has the same power set for a proper context.

Thing wore briefs. She-Thing got a top in addition to briefs
Ka-Zar gets a loin cloth. Shanna got a top in addition to the loin cloth.

Whoa.

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

Hey, I don't mind it either at all. I love some of the visual nods and the colour scheme is great for a Captain Marvel - but it's clearly a homage (a very cool one at that), whereas the black swimming suit was Carol's look, for right or wrong. For me, out of all of Carol's looks, the only one I've n...

Re: Marvel: "Warped" Draft

I've wanted to use Howard since the first round. My initial idea was to warp him with Pym - so that he'd become Giant Duck. But also, because Hank's a bit mental, have Howard Pym go through a series of personality crisis, becoming Ant-Fowl, Moor Hen etc...

Re: Marvel: "Warped" Draft

I can imagine Sound Guy's costume looking like a typical roadie's outfit. Love it!

Also, yes choices are definitely dwindling. I've got two strong concepts that I can't use until round 7 because of pools, but know either is unlikely to last.

Howard "Howie" Altman knew little about his father, other than that he was named after him, and inherited his innate ability to always get his beak into trouble. All this changed when the shapeshifting Skrull Kl'rt (prior to his merger with a symbiote) appears as part of a mission to awaken Skrull s...

Re: Captain Marvel's costume

I get that just because it's a bathing suit doesn't mean it's sexist, nor are you sexist for liking it. I'm just saying that for many of us, the current costume works because she's military and having her in a bathing suit doesn't quite fit in a modern sensibility. Distaff counterpart heroes are tr...

Re: Doctor Who

I do think the idea of a younger, contemporary Earth based companion is wearing a little thin. I think with Walsh there's the potential for another angle but I think since the revival only Jack, River and Nardole are longer term companions who don't fit this mould (ignoring the one-off characters). ...

A Last Hunt story would be great as a horror. I've not yet seen Venom but surprised it's doing well given the negative build-up.

In for an Avengers A-Editorial draft.

Don't know enough about DC to commit to an Amalgam draft. Can you list me in as a tentative for that one.

Re: Marvel: "Warped" Draft

I'm actually excited for the next round. I've got three warp concepts that I'd be happy to draft, all with different characters, so if you cheeky buggers do steal one before my next pick, I've actually got decent backups in mind for the first time since round one.

This should be a clear jumping in on point. New Doctor, new Companions, new show runner. Before this, there's Smith's era (starting with probably the best post resurrection story so far). I think Smith and Capaldi flow quite well into each other - especially with Clara acting as the bridge...Capaldi...

I think I've got a fall back. This round has been great creatively with the warps so far ...awful for my own ideas.
