@The Poet: I'm shocked on some of these.  Isn't AC still publishing?  I also remember when Acclaim and Valiant had a lot of fans.

Ooh I like "the unique". Very nice. And i'm working on my nominations now. And i promise, Dazzler wil NOT be on the list. :p that would be total self indulgence. And and thank you Liberty for posting that pic!(my reply button isn't working)

I'll join, as I did before.

@Jnr6Lil: like before, I need you to tell me what publisher you would like...mind reading is not on my list of super powers (though I wish it was)

@Silkcuts: Yes lets do the baseball cards versions of each other.  Silkcuts and I can't be turned against each other though for the following reasons: 
 
1.  We are both Canadian 
2.  That is actually all you need.

Ok first when is the deadline for the list/reasons from each person?

Second how long do these reasons have to be?

Third, do the three that can be from any publisher I want are they limited to the publishers in the list or any publisher?

If the deadline isn't until at least next weekend and the reasons don't have to be long I'll tackle Gold Key and Epic/Malibu, already have two picked out for Gold Key and one for Epic and one for First as one of my wildcards.

Hilarious.
 
@RazzaTazz
Also Hilarious.  What we need are stats.  How many reviews, Wiki points, reviews written and so on.  There are a lot of things that are not under our pick.  Then under the stats you need honers.  Like the community star and things like that.

@pikahyper:of the publishers avalble, which would be your choice to do?

Updated available publishers:

  1. Acclaim Comics/Valiant Comics:
  2. AC Comics:
  3. Epic Comics/Malibu Comics:
  4. Gold Key Comics:
  5. Eclipse Comics:

There is no deadline as of yet, because we need 5 more people to join. After that, I'll begin pming the 20 (or is that 22?) partisipants for their nominations for their spesified publisher.

keep in mind if you want to partisapate you need to tell me which publisher you want, then you can start collecting 5 characters spasifically from that assigned publisher and also 3 from any publisher.

It will take more than a weekend (I'm assuming) to orginize a list, so there would be no hurry on reasons for putting them on the list. The reasons would be about the length of any other list comment section. not too long, but indepth enough to give people a glimse into why a character is on the list and such.

of course, remember you have to represent a publisher to partipate in the actual list creating (if you want to just move, say, batman up or down on the list you can wait till things are done).

@pikahyper
  1. No dead line is established.  It is just reasonable time.
  2. As long as you want to make them I guess.  It is kind of a defense as to your pick some may not need as much as others.
  3. Any Publisher.
  4. You only represent one line.  No one gets two.  The choices are below.  When we vote we will vote in the order of the list on the first page.  So each person builds on the next.  Think of it like a draft for one team.  If Batman is picked then the next guy can't.  No duplicates.  So 5 will be form you represented company and the 3 can be from any company.
 
  1. Acclaim Comics/Valiant Comics:
  2. AC Comics:
  3. Epic Comics/Malibu Comics:
  4. Gold Key Comics:
  5. Eclipse Comics:

@The Poet: o.o I listed Gold Key & Epic/Malibu in my last post.

@The Poet: lol you answered the questions while I was.

@Liberty: k then I'll stick to Gold Key

@pikahyper: Cool.
 
Now we only have four more.  Anyone know anyone who are fans of our remaining four?
 
  1. Acclaim Comics/Valiant Comics:
  2. AC Comics:
  3. Epic Comics/Malibu Comics:
  4. Eclipse Comics:
Posted by pikahyper

@Liberty: Hmm doesn't turok love Valiant? o.O?

Moderator
Posted by Liberty
@pikahyper: Yeah I think he is waiting to see what's left.
Posted by pikahyper

@Liberty: You should change Eclipse Comics to Eclipse/Pacific, might get a Rocketeer fan :D

Moderator
Posted by Liberty
@pikahyper: Yeah I had to refresh my mind on that one.  The odd thing is that Eclipse was a long standing company that produced a lot of good stuff from the 1970's to the early 1990's.  Pacific was about two years and died.  What I would hate to see is a major long standing company get pushed aside for one that only had printed so few books.
 
The problem is where did all of Eclipse's fans go.  I don't remember seeing an Airboy fan ever on the vine.  We do have a bit of time though.
Posted by pikahyper

@Liberty: I am surprised I haven't seen any Airboy fans here, they have to exist somewhere cause somebody is buying the Moonstone releases :P

Pacific/First/Eclipse IMO.

Edited by The Poet

@Liberty: @pikahyper: @turoksonofstone: I'm sort of confused...so should I add something to Eclipse Comics (like Eclipse/Pacific)?

Again for anyone else (or just people who love reruns):

  1. Acclaim Comics/Valiant Comics:
  2. AC Comics:
  3. Epic Comics/Malibu Comics:
  4. Eclipse Comics?

@The Poet: Regarding Epic/Malibu entry does that include the Ultraverse?

Always thought the heap was the cooler one.

@The Poet: curses! I just replyed myself! :) instead of @turoksonofstone:

Well, I don't really know that publisher...but I would say sure...

Moderator
Posted by Liberty
@The Poet: I would not eliminate anything.  I would add some if they fit, but don't do it just to get some to take it and not know the other company.  Let some people see it this weekend, and if they are still there we can let people double up or some other creative solution.  Everyday we have gotten a few.  I asked some people.  I bet if we all asked three people we would have thins filled in 24 hours.  I would only ask cool people though.  What do you think?

I'm sort of confused...so should I add something to Eclipse Comics (like Eclipse/Pacific)?

Or less than 24 (I've been adding users to the list in 6 hour intervules (so I figure we'll get one while I'm asleep...) and on that note...

@The Poet:  
You Don't know the Ultraverse? Short lived 90's imprint from Malibu that was purchased along with the rest of the Malibu Library by Marvel. The Ultraverse allowed the Writers/Artists to co-own the characters thus Marvel rendered them inert with the purchase. A real shame they were great characters and books. Surely you have heard of Prime at least?

Heap is the Granddaddy of them all in the Swamp man category. 
To each his own, Of the Pilots I like, Iron Ace, the Knight.
Posted by pikahyper

@turoksonofstone: Iron Ace was good, for pilots I tend to stick to the mainstream; The Blackhawks and Enemy Ace.

Ugh, Blackhawks.. 
Love me some Enemy Ace! 
Sooooooooooo many GA pilots..

I have an idea.  I know, I know, but hear me out.  The point of this was to get a small group together to come up with some heroes.  The purpose of this can be seen in any media.  If you use too many focus groups you end up with a bland and flavorless product.  So in order to do that we said we would have 20 people.  Well because of another one of my ideas we have 22.  If two of us double up we can assure the 20.  Does it really matter if two guys get more votes.  Not to me if don't.  So what do you guys think?  We could even nominate the person to be the one to get it.  Excluding those who either don't want to or don't know the company.
 
So we find one more user.  We double up for two users.  We get turoksonofstone (historian and teacher) to take one.  Then we can vote.

@Silkcuts: Wow buddy you O.K.? Are you talking about Razz Tazz? That is the only one I see with brackets. Am I missing something? btw, your comment reminded me of an idea I had about user bubble gum cards. It would be based on the bask of baseball cards with all your official stats. I wanted to design one but never got around to it. This should be in a different blog. Sorry.

I am fine. I started it with an "lol".

I just was in a rant mood since I was working on the forever project of mine and I am getting closer to plotting up to the hanging. I shouldn't of made that rant public. Oh wells its done with. Don't get me wrong I like Razz Tazz a lot, she is great. I just pointed out something, pointing out things is what I do. I also didn't want a bracketed statement and don't know if the joke with in it should offend me or not. Crazy I assure you all I am not, I just have a different relationship with the universe compared to most. Overqualified is an interesting choice of words, because who would be under qualified? The baseball cards sounds like a great idea.

I agree we both can't be turned against each other. I can name a few reasons

^_^

1) Both Canadians

2) both attractive people

3) both Community Stars

4) Both would make b@d@$$ baseball cards

5) She is to Wonder Woman what I am to John Constantine. Meaning we are avatars for awesome characters on comicsvine.

6) I have nothing but respect for her, even if I was in a weird mood this morning a posted a rant that should of not been public.

Posted by Liberty
@Silkcuts: You are cool.  I just had to say something though.  It was begging for a response.  You two better not exclude me on my baseball card idea.  =)  We could start a private PM to spit out what should be on it if you want?

I guess it did scream of "LOVE ME DAMN IT". But all of is fact and I withheld the fact that I am also undefeated in the rap battle threads. So apparently I am a gifted rhymer as well. Like I said, most well rounded user to boot. But like I said I was in a mind state I shouldn't of been to public with because when I hang the main character in Forever, it is a symbolic hanging as much as a literal.

DUDE forget the PM's start your blog!

Can I take up the cause for Eclipse Comics? I'd love to take part in this.

I can't wait to see your list for Eclipse.

Posted by jhazzroucher

is Amalgam Comics included?

@jhazzroucher: No it is not. Look at the list. plus, Amalgam is aseentially mavel/DC characters which we will repeat on the list...I don't want to do that...

@The Poet: Let's wait 18-24 hours from now.  You said we were getting one on average every six hours and that seems to be working so why mess with a working system.  
 
After that if they are still there than let's do it.  When the time comes we should make sure if Turoksonofstone will take one first.  If he is not it won't work anyway.  Also let's nominate people for the remaining two.  Nominated people can opt out if they want however based on not knowing the remaining two.  No nominating yourself.  What do you think?

I cannot believe that we will have a problem filling the last three.
 

  1. Acclaim Comics/Valiant Comics:  Was awesome in it's day.  They had great comics
  2. AC Comics: This company is still making comics.  There has got to be someone who's buying this
  3. Epic Comics/Malibu Comics:  These were printed in the 1990's.  The comic decade.  Everyone who was around at that this has some of these book in there collection.
Does anyone know someone who is a fan of these books?
