there remains an Omega Supreme-sized hole in my Animated collection that not even 3P wants to fill....

Also does anyone know if CatSCAN ever received a spark? His wiki article says he is a spark less build when he was created surly he has one now.

@  Dracula : (27 May 2016 - 07:26 AM)

Plokatron, I don't think many comics companies do direct subscriptions like that anymore. However many local comic shops will reserve comics for you in a subscription fashion.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 May 2016 - 06:46 AM)

I have a friend who is one of the illegitimte comics trivia masters on the planet, and he says all the animation was hand-drawn by Muppets.

@  Scavgraphics : (27 May 2016 - 04:21 AM)

@Telly I got a friend who's one of the legit comics trivia masters on the planet. I've asked if he knows.

@  Plokatron : (26 May 2016 - 10:35 PM)

Been wondering and I'm probly being a complete slag brain and not notice whats in front of me. But does IDW have subscriptions available on their site? I'm thinking of signing up for monthly comics and Transformers is da one.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2016 - 09:01 PM)

No idea, but I'd guess it'd be some in-studio job otherwise, given the obssessiveness nerds can have over about 50 years, we'd know by now.

@  Telly : (26 May 2016 - 08:54 PM)

does anyone know who did the "animation" for the 1960s batman show? been wondering for years and i cant find an answer anywhere. looks to me like either jack kirby or john romita

No idea.

In other news, getting "Army of Me" on a Thug/Dark MM? When 4 of the clones use "Gang War" upon spawning? That was "interesting" to say the least.

Yeah only thing was that *I* was the one being dog-piled on. "Army of Me" is when you take on 8 of your clones all at once in Leonard's story arc, redside. So if you're a Thug MM with all 6 pets and Gang War, then you're facing 8 Thug MMs. With all of their 6 pets. All capable of calling a gang war on you. So that's 8 NPCs, 48 pets with the possibility of a buttload of pets all attacking you.

I am kind of amused by the idea that a city is attacked by so many monsters that there's an alert system for supernatural activity.

That was a "Quality Of Life" feature added a few years ago. People would literally camp at the three locations for the Paladin in Kings Row for hours awaiting its appearance. Or, you would never notice the Ghost Ship gliding along in Independence Port because the zone is so huge.

I think it works, though. As a hero, you'd be tuned into such things. Think of it as you just happen across it while listening to your scanner.

And, if you don't like it, you can suppress those messages. It is part of the options you can set to not see them.

Of course, now I'm thinking of the days when you could "train" the Ghost Ship and have it follow you around the zone like a pet. You could have it follow you up to the hill in Talos and it would just sit there. Ahh, the days when there were so many "features" in CoH. icon-hotrod.gif

I would go onto the City of Heroes website and download the Freedom Client directly from them, because my guess is Freedom has totally changed the pathways of the old game. You can likely still use your CoV Serial Number to get a free month of VIP, though.

You should see Power Paladin's inverted version.

All it does is swap the colors for each item. So, if your "helmet detail 1" has Yellow/Black, your inverted version's helmet detail 1 becomes Black/Yellow.

Definitely visit www.plaync.com and find your way to the game client, then download from there. It completely changed a few months ago. Much to my annoyance. I used to be able to just click an icon and start CoH without all the nagging "Accept" and such. They got wise and force you to use their "console" to launch the game, now. (And moved the agreement to be after you log in).

After 460+ Hours of play time...I finally have a Level 50. Night Raider just clicked the magic number. As for how/when it happened?



How about getting the "Master of Olympus" badge? Yeah, I'd say that was a good feeling.


It feels good to finally have a character at the cap. For one thing, it means I can really indulge my altaholism without worry. Though I probably should work on getting a Red to 50 too.

FINALLY got everything DLed.... and now I have a charrecter up. Chose Shade as my first. Took me about 2 hours to get her built (forgot the capes cost extra)... and then turns out Shade is taken.... so I gave her the name 'Moritori'.

And I managed to get up to level 5 before board maintenance, doing nothing but beating up devil-worshiping hoods.

So yeah, if you se a chick in all-black with maroon beltstraps and spikes... that's me.

How do I save pics of your peeps anyways?

I remember when Raptor Scribe hit 50. It was literally as we took down the Olympian Guard in the last part of the Maria Jenkins storyarc.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

By the way, there's a little magnifying glass next to the name box during creation. You can use that to check if a name is taken before you finish everything else.

On a silly note, my new favorite mission is when the magical sentient television has you destroy a charity's books and blame it on violent video games.
