An odd Batman foe with an improbable mystique to him.

As of September of 2019, this entry received some polish — plus manically morbid Mutants & Masterminds modelisation.

A big, heavily illustrated article about rifles, shotguns, submachineguns, etc. in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #2 – Small Arms, part 1. But the article was getting too big and with too many photos for slow connections and less powerful devices, so it’s better to cleave it in two.

Recent additions:
— Large-bore air rifle
— Drum-fed shotgun
— Badass tommy gun
— Badass Mosin-Nagant
— All-Inclusive Assault Carbine
— Integrally Suppressed Assault Carbine
— Four-barrelled combination gun
— Microwave gun

Recent additions :
— Body pistol
— Changed stats for the humongous hand cannon
— Badass .45
— Fitzed revolver
— Quadruple stack pistol
— Lancaster pistol

Profile #5 (yeah, I know) in our chronological coverage of Marvel’s Spitfire.

This one covers her appearances during the late 2000s and early 2010s, when something about her nature has become much more apparent.

As of September of 2019 this entry received clarifications courtesy of a Marvel researcher, plus an umpteenth editing pass and having the pictures redone in HD.

Alex Rogen is the hero of The Last Starfighter.

This sci-fi 1984 movie was an important precursor in using a lot of CGI to depict out-of-this-world action. Such as, in this case, space battles.

The last third for our profile of the Doomsday Man and Kerwin Korman, who form an Avengers-class Marvel Comics villain. With links to the two previous bits, of course.

He’s obscure, but he’s powerful. And he has an interesting history that is intertwined with Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers)’s and has quite a few hooks.

Not the Nova one or the Power Pack one. Obscure Marvel Comics mutant created by Erik Larsen, mostly seen in Spider-Man stories.

Absorbs ambient life force to power herself.

A short-ish profile of the Oberon warframe from, well, the Warframe video game, for use in tabletop/pen-and-paper RPGs.

A versatile fighter, curiously themed after a sort of magic-casting priest of earth and fire.

And he looks great -half the reason we have warframe profiles is because I love how they look weird and cool.

That’s the Marvel Comics one, specifically the one with the Darkforce powers. He’s oddly cool, if underused.

As of August of 2019, this profile received grimdark M&M stats, plus text and illustrations improvements. Excelsior!
