"The War Wheel remains one of my favorite villain inventions. It just looks so damn cool."

"Looking through Tomahawk covers online fascinates me (more than the couple of issues I've read). He starts out as a frontiersman type (surprisingly even preceding the Davy Crockett craze), then a 1700s war book (the Rangers were described as…"

"Basically yes, I think that's what they went with."

"According to "The Law and Superheroes" technically it banned "costumed adventuring" while fighting crime. Still, your point is taken, so I modify my statement to "almost invariably." Legends, by contrast, bans…"

"Where do we draw the line between humans at the edge of human potential and those with superpowers?" Something that would pose serious legal challenges in a superheroes-banned situation like Legends or Civil War. Which the comics invariably…"

"That non-super people pull in the DCU and MU, I mean."

""As I noted earlier, despite what the writers said, Karate Kid had to have super strength and some high level of invulnerability to do the things he was shown to be able to do. He is less Shang-chi and more Karnak or Iron Fist. A good…"

"Universo's flair for working behind the scenes always made for good stories (and a memorable villain)."

"Likewise if Misty Knight had to register, does everyone with a mechanical prosthetic have to sign up? Or heck, anyone with night goggles — being able to see in the dark is a classic super-power."

Fraser Sherman replied to Randy Jackson's discussion Ranking the Silver Age Legion of Super Heroes
"This is something that always annoys me about stories involving some sort of super-hero regulation (e.g. Civil War). It's taken as a given all super-powered heroes (and sometimes non-super heroes) are covered; any competent attorney could have…"

"One of the text features (IIRC) in Adventure said Projectra was gifted with her powers by a sorceress at birth. So her parents probably did know and picked the name accordingly."

"I think it was a kind of super-extrapolation. Real karate masters break boards, so "logically" super-karate could break steel. I always liked KK precisely because using super-karate made him stand out from the other superstrong members.…"

"This assumes Nemesis Kid has even minimal fighting skills when he's not tapping his power. Or any brains. I'm not sure he does. In Karate Kid #1, for instance, and when he faced Projectra years later, he gets enough power to beat them but…"

"Action 391 has Element Lad transmuting an android army. I don't remember the number of adversaries, but he eventually exhausted himself and passed out. Fraser"

"Yes, considering how much of my life I spent with zero comics nerds to talk to, it's nice that's no longer the case."

"Fabulous! My wife's never had anything that scary, but it's been scary enough. I'm glad yours made it through the crisis. I'm thankful for lot of things but like you marriage was a surprise and I'm very thankful it's…"
