News and latest profiles

Death-Man

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.

Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #1 – Handguns, part 2

A big, heavily illustrated article about handguns in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #1 – Handguns, 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 :
— Body pistol
— Changed stats for the humongous hand cannon
— Badass .45
— Fitzed revolver
— Quadruple stack pistol
— Lancaster pistol

Spitfire

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.

Doomsday Man

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.

Oberon-class warframe

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.

Concussion

An obscure Russian mutant in the Marvel Universe. He blasts.

As of august of 2019, our contributor Pawsplay added Мутанты и Masterminds stats, under the “heh why not” clause.

Slash

A minor enemy of Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) at the end of the Bronze Age.

Rapists-killing vigilante with a shedload of knives.

Blackout

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!

Titania-class warframe

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

The one and only gun fairy can also deploy stranger glammer-like abilities on the battlefield. And she’s tied to the mysterious Silver Grove on what’s left of Earth, and one of the oddest rebellions during the Old War.

Skeletor

Skeletor was the evil bad antagonist in the notable 1980s animated series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Old people fondly reminisce about him. Who can figure these guys out, heh. How do you do, fellow kids ?

Corvidae

Two demon-like, shape-shifting sisters who organise death duels between great warriors from any universes. They’re, like, a crossover engine.

The Corvidae appeared in Gail Simone and Aaron Lopresti’s Wonder Woman vs. Conan mini-series.

Raccoon

The half-human mobster Raccoon is also an ally of the Nocturnals, as seen in Dan Brereton’s painted comics.

And thus our Nocturnals writeups arc ends. It’s a bit sad.

Shocker

The “classic” (well, if you’re in your 40s I guess) part of Spider-Man foe the Shocker’s career – 1967-1989, before Marvel started fleshing out his simple characterisation. A good stock jobber, I think.

As of July of 2019, this profile received yet another editing pass, plus M&M stats that are trying not to make a vibrator joke.
