You guys remember that Videogame Comics thread I did once at General? I haven't read any Gears of War again but now Army of Two got my attention. I dunno how they handle things in the games but I like how they fight Maras and corrupt cops down south on this.
Yep. I even have the hardbound collected edition, along with the one for Mario, and another for Nintendo Power. Anyone remember the Choose Your Own Adventure-style books for Mario and Zelda? I used to be addicted to those, and the real CYOA, and Wizards, Warriors & You.
I dunno, I can think of quite a few iconic Batman villains that are powered. Mr. Freeze, Ivy, Croc, Clayface, etc. In some of those cases, I really don't see how they're any more or less realistic than Weather Wizard or Captain Cold.
I wouldn't say Mr. Freeze is super powered, he just has a fancy gun. In that respect, he's no different from Captain Cold. However, Cold's opponent is a guy who can move at the speed of light. Batman is a mortal man. To me, that makes it much, much more tolerable.
Freeze also has his suit. It buffs him up quite a bit.
So does anyone read indie titles? I've been reading a couple Madman and Hellboy trades lately and I've just been wondering what you guys have checked out before.
Freeze's gun/ray/whatever only encases whatever it hits in ice. Captain Cold can actually completely freeze something at the molecular level.
Pretty much. Freeze has an ice gun. Cold's tech creates absolute zero fields. Can't dig up the comic, but I've definitely seen a segment of a Flash issue where Cold bitches about how people confuse him and Mr. Freeze and goes on a whole "my gun is better" spiel.
Hm. Is anybody else reading Secret Six? Simone is giving Bane a cude and cuddly side and it works surprisingly well. Go figure.
