@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

What a world we live in where we can actually reasonably speculate that Hourman might be in a live action tv show.


This year is his 75th anniversary too, so it took long enough. I do wonder which version they'd do. I assume Rick (just a great grandson now), but with Ivo being involved I don't feel I can quite rule out Hourman III, even though Arrowverse Ivo wasn't quite into that like the comics (or not so far, I'm still finishing up S2). Rex would be possible, but they're already drowning in scientist heroes, so I figure Rick would be the most likely.

Dr Mid-Nite would also be perfect. Never been done as Live-Action, he's a rarity in that he's ACTUALLY a doctor, which would come in super-handy for everyone else. I'm talking about the modern version, Dr Pieter Cross, not the original. Using the modern version also means they can play around with a possible love triangle plot, as in the comics Dinah dated Dr Mid-Nite for a large chunk of the time while Oliver was dead. He's also a pretty cool looking character.

Here's the character info from casting calls. Spoiler material, I guess, though it's only descriptions, no names.


One does sound like Kendra Saunders, but I don't know if that'd be possible. Hawkman on Smallville was pretty bad. The wings were terrible. I wonder if she'd make it onto Arrow and hook up with Roy. IF that is her. Description fits perfectly, but it fits just as perfectly for Wildcat II. Wouldn't have thought of her except for Scav mentioning her in the Arrow thread. I'd say she's the far likelier candidate.

There's also a line from Caity Lotz, if you consider that a spoiler too.

My guesses would be Booster Gold, Hawkgirl, and Static.

 

I'm still not sure what the deal is with Caity Lotz.

Except, Booster was on Smallville, so he violates the "never on tv" clue.

 

DC might not own the rights to Static anymore...the whole Milestone 2.0 thing is throwing questions that way.

 

I've seen some speculation that the latina woman could be be Yolanda Montez, Wild Cat II, or Bea Decosta, Fire.

I don't put much stock in the "never been on TV before" thing. It seemed like an offhand comment from the network, rather than from Berlanti or Johns. Keep in mind there are probably going to be a lot more DCU characters on this too, it's not necessarily these three that would fit that bill.

I think the other live-action Static project is probably more of a problem. It seems different to the other movie/TV examples to me, although this would be a more mature version of the character.

It's sad that so few characters come to mind, even with such a generic description.

It could be Black Lightning, as that one site mused. John Stewart would fit that general description too.

I still think its Fury. By day she tries to fit in with society and by night she's Fury.

 

Although Fire would be pretty awesome.

As Fire has been one of my favorite characters (what can I say, it was the Adam Hughes JLI which introduced me to a lot of DC), I'd like to see her, but really only if they go the all out glamourous super model/super spy version of her, which would likely not fly in todays...culture.

Why wouldn't it fit? Fire would fill the ethnic quota too. She'd also fit the idea of it being a lgbt related team of heroes.

The only problem is having both her and Firestorm being redundantly flame themed ish.

He's talking about how she was a bit of a Latina / Brazilian stereotype.

Hehe, I remember the sexual innuendo Hawkgirl Shayera made over Flash mooning over Fire in that JLU ep. Something like "... You like her? I heard she is... Brazilian...". and they were glancing at Fire while she was together with Ice, haha.

And im just joking about the new team being gay in-universe. It was really more about the actors involved, sorry.

http://www.ew.com/ar...eam-movies?asdf

I guess it's pretty lucky that they already established Jason Rusch, wonder if that guy's available now.

I'm actually not that torn up about that. Robbie Amell is a fairly limited actor, and I don't think he's been all that great as Ronnie. If they end up going with Jason in the new show I'm fine with that.

They didn't say he was left off for any bad reason just that they 'can't say why'. Perhaps a plot point?
