For heroes: Matter Eater Lad from The Legion of Super Heroes is pretty lame.
I know this is blasphemy but I think most of the DC villains are just stupid. A clown , a guy who thinks he 's a penguin ( have you seen a penguin, they're one of the most ridiculous animals on the planet) and a guy who ...

[quote]Blade Runner is one of my favorite movies of all time...period. Therefore, I'm not sure how to feel about a sequel. Just because Ford is returning, it doesn't mean that the film will have the same eclectic Ridley Scott charm that made this sleeper of a movie an absolute gem. Would be awesom...

It depends on the country.
The Japanese have been in to hygiene for thousands of years. If you like to read, read Shogun by James Clavell. He does a good job of illustrating how utterly filthy the Englishmen who washed up on the beach of Japan were compared to the locals.
As for Europe, they'...

Any of you ever play the Mech Warrior/Battle Tech RPGs back in the late 80s? There are a lot of novels written that go along with the story of the game and really flesh out the world and its characters. The PC games went even further and the first two were a LOT of fun.
