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

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.

This Kree hardliner and senior officer clashed with the Avengers during the 1990s.

He’s not the most memorable Avengers enemy, but if your stories make use of the Kree (or Marvel space stuff in general) he’s useful.

Stephanie Brown as Batgirl during her excellent 2009-2011 run. Unsinkable, endearing and getting pretty damn competent at this stage.

As of April of 2019, this profile was ensmoothened then split so it’s easier to read, especially on smartphones. As we slowly do with our longer writeups.

This is the 2010s version of DC’s Velvet Tiger. So, the one mostly seen during the Burnside softboots for Batgirl (Barbara Gordon).

Sociopathic rich lass with both a high-tech angle and a big cats angle. She works fairly well as a street-level villainess.

For days, every media-related website has been plastered with Game of Thrones clicks-catching #content.

We don’t have anything GoT-related. So our site is starting to look like an ugly duckling, a misfit, an anomaly, a mutant sworn to defend a world that hates and fears them.

A scary, weird expert in a comic book version of biofeedback. Superhuman violence monster, but he’s on the Frequency so he’s okay.

This is the last of our Warren Ellis et al’s Global Frequency character profiles, as we’ve covered every writeup-able bit. It was a cool ride.

A Cajun mercenary veteran turned private detective. From the excellent Cinder & Ashe DC Comics limited series.

As of March of 2019, this profile was overhauled and received M&M game stats. So, even if only in this respect, les zaricos sont salés.
