Eh, I guess. He did fairly well on his own as an independent in his first appearance and such.

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 10:04 PM)

@Sabrblade Vulture tends to fare poorly as his own boss. Working for a great version of Doc Ock ain't a bad gig... and I did ask if about "bad" as opposed to "not the best". ;)

@  Plokatron : (20 April 2018 - 09:53 PM)

@Egon1982 No my friend Mutator Spiders as in get caught in their web and you are mutated into a even more animalistic creature than you were. Hordika were Half Sentient beings half Wild animal and unlike Spiderman it affected each race slightly differnt with Toa being of a similar mutation to each other. My guess for Spiderman is he would become more spider like but with a inside skeletal structure hmm wonder what Visorak Venom would do to CNA make Dinobot Predacon like monsters or something wild?!

@  Paladin : (20 April 2018 - 04:15 PM)

compared to the "youth-sucking" gimmick from the other series? BIG step up.

@  Sabrblade : (20 April 2018 - 03:57 PM)

@Otaku: What about that show's take on Vulture? He had potential at first but he eventually just settled into being a lackey rather than his own boss.

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:44 PM)

Did anyone else thought Thunder in Big Trouble in Little China when he was inflating looked like a garbage pail kid before he blew up into salad? I always thought that since seeing the movie in theaters at age 5. 

@  Egon1982 : (20 April 2018 - 02:25 PM)

Mutator spiders as in man-spider?

@  Otaku : (20 April 2018 - 11:06 AM)

Shocker was a pretty good villain in The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. Wait, does that count since I can't think of a bad take on any character from that series? ;)

@  Arazyr : (20 April 2018 - 09:26 AM)

Ontario/Detroit area? Yeah. Supposedly, you could feel it from where I live, but I didn't notice. I never feel these things. 8(

so that WAS an earthquake last night...

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 09:43 PM)

Webhead Vs. Mutater Spiders. Hmmm I can see this ending badly with HordikaMan Hey maybe it'd make Venom catchable with spider sense.

@  Broadside : (19 April 2018 - 09:16 PM)

Can't wait for Spider-Man to fight the Visorak

@  Plokatron : (19 April 2018 - 08:21 AM)

You know what's funny? Both Spiderman and Bionicle have a title in common. Web of Shadows. :p

@  Liege : (19 April 2018 - 08:03 AM)

Don't mocks the Shocker!

@  unluckiness : (19 April 2018 - 04:46 AM)

But he's the second lamest Spider-Man villain

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 April 2018 - 10:56 PM)

You know.. for all intents and purposes, Shocker should have won in Kamen Rider 71.

@  Plokatron : (18 April 2018 - 06:55 PM)

:wtf :D :wtf Can't wait can't wait just a couple more days and I'm at Comiccon Cape! Gonna be a blast! I hope they have that freaking proper Master Sword Replica this year with the black handel (I love the one from the old comic drawn by the guy who did Cyborg 009)!!!

@  Plokatron : (16 April 2018 - 12:31 AM)

Oh my word it is true. The greatest Gunnery Sargent to live is now gone. Gunny I know I'd of never cut the mustard if you were my CO but as I friend I would of been humbled and honored to know a man who truly knew the corp. May the jackets always be full metal and no watermelon left standing. Forgive the jokes there but you made it clear you hated watermelons with how many you sliced, blasted and plain disintegrated on Tv. :thumbsup  (Why do we not have a Wheeljack salute emot?)  Simper-Fi Carry on Gunny see you up there in the great kingdom one day hope you enjoy the company of my great uncles and everyone who you saw last on that field of honor.

@  Plokatron : (16 April 2018 - 12:21 AM)

Wait what!!!!!!! Gunny is dead!!!!

@  Bass X0 : (15 April 2018 - 03:52 AM)

Should we as a society change our way of life, culture and general thinking to that which people fifty years from now could look back without being judgemental of our ways? Today we look back at people from fifty years ago and openly criticise things that were considered acceptable and normal back then as not fitting in with our modern day standards that we have to censor them, or have the disclaimer that's just how it was back then. So surely things we as a population consider normal and acceptable today may not fit in with the standards of fifty years from now. But how do we know what would be acceptable and normal fifty years from now that we are supposedly doing wrong today? We don't. That's the point when we are applying modern day standards and way of thinking to a time fifty years ago.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 11:09 PM)

Thank you my friend. I hope so too.

@  Maruten : (14 April 2018 - 06:58 PM)

Sorry to hear that, man. Hope things turn around and you have a great time at the con.

@  Plokatron : (14 April 2018 - 06:24 PM)

Ugh I have had a terrible week. My step mom goes to the hospital with high heart rate then has elevated blood sugar once they fixed her heart flutter. Then she is released last night and snaps her ankle bone so she needs to stay at her aunts till it is healed. Wouldn't be so bad if our half of the place was done and I was able to move in too but it's not and I hate being home alone codependency problems. I hope everything stays balenced for the next week since I got comic con to go to on the 21st. I am at least smart enough not to say a certain phrase cause I know if I tempt fate it will kick my but worse than Optimus did Megatron in the movie. Sorry for the long pity party post guys I know it's not liked but I hope a bit of venting is ok.

@  Rycochet : (14 April 2018 - 12:46 PM)

The past few system failures I've had that have lost files hae spurred me into a new burst of creativety, I soon fill up the space o a new hard disk with sketches and notes and other little things I do to stay sane.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:34 PM)

It's like a rebirth, a very sad, identity ripping, rebirth.

@  Soft Snow : (14 April 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Losing all the files I saved up over a decade gives me the chance to start afresh.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 April 2018 - 11:02 AM)

I don't want to lose the web comic I made, but I also rock redundant drives and off PC backups.

@  Fnu Aw : (14 April 2018 - 10:13 AM)

I don't have anything important enough to worry about losing. Go me!

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

At least that was BEFORE my kids were born, so no baby pics lost.

@  Arazyr : (14 April 2018 - 09:39 AM)

I had a catastrophic hard drive failure in early 2007, and lost almost EVERYTHING. I was lucky I had a couple of documents synced to a mobile device at the time. No getting the photos back, though.

@  Bass X0 : (14 April 2018 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, I've lost a lot of stuff over the years due to not having backed up.

Good thing we don't have socialism anymore.

Can you engage in a conversation in a Swabian pub? Most people from Cologne already fail at asking for directions in the Eifel region."

How about Hasbro buys Jakks Pacific so we can see some Nintendo toys that aren't designed ignoring 20 years of advances in toy-making?? That would be nice.

If the recent Marvel Vs. Capcom 2-pack is any indication, Hasbro has quite a ways to go themselves in that regard
