- LIL’ FIXES:
- The Elements of Doom fixes are now online
- Recent Marvel books have had a few more real names revealed. The Background section for a few entries has thus been enriched – Gremlin III, Silencer II, Knockabout, Psi-Borg II, Ivory.
And that does help cleaning up my work folder, too.
My writeups.org time has gone from feast to famine, so here is a size S batch that includes everything me and Adam have finished – because the Spice must flow ! Note that further volunteers willing to detour small batches of images (say, 3 or 4) are, like, totally welcome. Half-sized roll call:
- ART. REZcat provided new art for two Champions characters:
- The three main characters of Project A-ko are now online, thanks to Pufnstuff – B-Ko (Biko Daitokuji) and A-Ko. And yes, that’s three since C-ko (Shiiko Kotobuki) gets her own section in A-Ko’s entry.
- We also have a few minor villains from the StormWatch – PHD miniseries ; those guys got an a nice, generic feel and can be used as-is in a majority of campaigns. In this batch:
- Amadeus, a Sonic Beam villain
- Cooler, a Ice Production villain
- After a lot of conversation we now have a writeup for Beck – Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s character in the movie The Rundown. We had two choices, you see – Option A and Option B.
- Marvel’s second Cobra, who appeared in the most recent White Tiger miniseries.
- More Champions characters as adapted by REZcat. In this batch:
- Black Paladin, the very evil knight
- Defender, the heroic version of Iron Man
- Red Rapier, the evil swashbuckler
- Ripper, a brick
- A long-awaited writeup that went through strange peregrinations – Captain Marvel I (Mar-Vell), by Pufnstuff
- UPDATES AND REWRITES. Tons of those are incoming, but I could only cram one in for this batch. But it’s a big one, and a classic Marvel villain too – we have a huge and thoroughly rewritten entry for Doctor Faustus !
- Roy is continuing to write the Force of July, which involves reading some really dismal material so you guys don’t have to. In this batch, we have Silent Majority.
- Furthermore, various fixes have been done which had been inexplicably missed before – for Marvel Boy (Noh-Varr), Photon (the one in Force) and Rocket Racer. Fixes for Deadly Nightshade and the Elements of Doom will also be done soon-ish if all goes well.
Current number of entries is 3710. Yay !
Fixed a number of issues signaled by the doughty members of the WORG Patrol:
- The real names of all Supremacists have been added (those were revealed in the second volume of the Marvel Atlas)
- Typo corrected in Eagle quote, Frank added as helper
- Ultimus has not been fixed despite Chris’s excellent remark, because… I’m not sure what I intended to do. He will be v2ed shortly (Ultimus, not Chris).
- Commander B. Crusher’s erroneous Subskill fixed, KalEl added as helper
- Cyborg’s location is now Jump City and not ‘the city’
- Firestorm I (Raymond/Stein version) – typo fixed, energy blasts clarified, KalEl ands Eric added as helpers
- Clarified a bit in the Corruptor’s history, Chris added as a helper
- Typo fixed in the description of Harry Leland’s powers, Ethan added as helper
- Storm is now small-m married, has the Connections discussed in late 2007, Eric and Michael added as helpers, and I’ve fixed her list of Known Relatives.
- I haven’t acted yet on Capita_Senyera’s good points about Marrina and heather Hudson – since the entirety of AF has to be rewritten (I think AF were the very first writeups I published on the list around 1995). Can’t put them on my dance card right now, though.
- Chroma’s shapeshifting has been clarified ; KalEl added as helper
- Mad Peter Quick’s van fixed. Good thing KalEl is fast !
- Capita_Senyera added to the Helpers list for Mirage (Valkyrie period)
- Count Nefaria’s MPI corrected, Azrael added as a helper
- First fixes added to Darkstar, Pufnstuff and Capita_Senyera as helpers
Thanks to the community for bringing up those points.
