Re: Dr. David Stuart on December 21st, 2012...

The Church Of The SubGenius had the perfect parody for this sort of prophetic date-rounding: When X-Day "failed" to occur in 1998, it was explained that J.R. "Bob" Dobbs screwed up in interpreting the message from Space God Jehovah-One years ago and that X-Day is actually on for...

Friendly piece of advice, Shep, you might to look through Parting Shots and find a few newbies who were banned for "minor boo-boos" before you lob that accusation at the mods.

Re: KOTOR2 is finally finished

I'm playing this mod, and I can't finish the first sparring match with the Handmaiden. Both characters can get the other's HP down to almost nothing, but neither can deliver the knockout blow. The only way to end the fight if I get myself DQ'ed by using Force powers or something. Anybody else have t...

Yes, he was. Slussh managed to kill him -- again -- but didn't destroy the ring, allowing it and its compadres to resurrect him again in addition to the others. At least that's what I'm seeing.
That would definitely make more sense than an incredibly obvious goof.

Re: New Details on "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths" DTV

Aquaman always seemed rather out of place on the Justice League to me, since the guy's most potent when underwater and most of the JL's adventures will always be on dry land. I wouldn't mind to see an Aquaman DTV at all, as it would give the guy a chance to have an adventure in his element.

Re: New Details on "Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths" DTV

No "Worlds Collide" is disappointing, as is the lack of a story with the JSA. However, while the world of Ultraman, Owlman, et al has always struck me as very Silver Age and generally very corny, I must admit that I tend to like "Mirror-verse" stories quite a lot. Plus, I must al...

Pardon my ignorance, but what is "chemical castration?" Hell, just typing it gives me the willies. From what I understand, chemical castration means being forced onto a regimen of drugs that stifles the sex drive completely. Unsurprisingly, drugs powerful enough to do such a thing do not ...

IIRC, one of the Earths that they have filled in was clearly supposed to be based on Batman Beyond (Earth-12, I think), so they might just set this there.

Oh yeah, GL 45 looks like it'll be made of condensed win. Bring on Mogo vs. Xanshi!

By the way, does anyone else suspect those skeletons at the heart of the Zamaron...

I've been picking these up myself, having gotten to read (most of) the prelude to the blackest night books.
