“just wanna get my ass kicked around so more tonight”

I wonder what other real Superheroes are out there and if there is some sort of National State Plan which produces/trains such official Superheroes. And I wonder if every city has a Superhero and if so why won’t some Super Villains just move to the countryside and wreck havoc and terror there and then run away to the next countryside once a hero shows up to clean up the mess?

Sounds kinda like what Saruman ends up doing in the LOTR books :p

Yeah, well, something tells me that if Superman beats Lex Luthor, Lex doesn’t kick some Amish family out of their home, make them grow tobacco and insist they call him “Sharkey”.

Saruman really didn’t know how to villain very well.

lol, but the Sharkey nickname was made up by his men. (From the book, most likely derived from Skarku, which meant “old man.”)

Also, given that he’d lost most of his actual soldiers and all his powers (except for the silver tongue), he was kind of down to petty villainy at that point.

Hmm, that’s a interesting thought. Usually your classic superheroes like Spiderman, Wolverine, Iron Man, etc etc are vigilantes with their own origins, government trained/produced heroes like say Captain America are much more rare. It could be a neat twist where vigilantes like our heroes Analog and D-Pad are the stand outs while Captain Prime and other heroes like her are government trained/made. As for villains running away from the heroes, well I would imagine that the heroes wouldn’t just go “Oh, he left. Guess I’ll just go home now.” It would be much more likely they keep up the chase,… Read more »

Read a online serial work of fiction called “Worm”. Very dark, extremely awesome! it covers how this would work beautifully!

Deadpool: [clapping his hands] Whoo! Superhero landing! You know, that’s really hard on your knees.

However, it makes me wonder if Tim actually planned to do this, knowing full well someone would make a Deadpool reference (as I did), or if he was just doing that as an actual story mechanic to show how much more awesome Captain Prime is compared to Analog and D-Pad…?

Ya there are more realistic ways of landing after a fall but only so many that translate well into a single action pose. Not many that scream baddass like the super hero landing paired with forcibly face planting 2 mooks as an entrance.

Actually, it is Assassin’s Creed landing.

Thinking this is the scene where the REAL hero tells the wannabes to go home before they hurt somebody…. And hopefully take a moment to show (Whichever one it is who cannot die, forget which is which) how SUCKY his superpower can be, in the hands of a villain. (Oh, you can’t die? Then I CAN KILL YOU OVER AND OVER FOR ALL ETERNITY!!)

No, a villain would simply kill his friend, instead.

When you can’t threaten someone because they are too powerful to feel threatened, you threaten the people they care about.

Dormammu tried this… it only works if the hero hasn’t resigned himself to everlasting torment as the price for saving humanity. And only if the villain has forever to personally stand around and kill him over and over forever. Because that kind of attention kind of stops you from working on your other evil plans, which is self defeating. And the moment you decide to automate the task or hand if off to an underling, the hero will find a way to break the cycle and escape…….

Actualy killing the hero endlessly also probably wont be necessary in most cases except out of spite. A villain can probably afford to chainkill a hero to keep that hero out of action while the master plan that was set in motion plays out assuming the villain set things up to not require direct hands on intervention except to deal with problems. IF your plot is to blow up a building you dont need to kill the hero trying to defuse the bomb forever, just until the bomb goes off and you keeping the hero busy does not stop the… Read more »

True, but the different skin colors would seem to imply they’re different people.

Of course. Compared to Cap’n here, they’re inexperienced and had to be rescued just like any other civilian. I hope it’s some sort of gentile reprimand or advice- after all, Cap was once where these two are now.

Whatever her attitude problems, I love Captain Prime’s look and style. She seems super badass.
