@batkevin74: Woohoo! Thanks. :D

Btw, some trivia: a few of the names in this are phoenetic spellings of words/phrases I know in other languages (loose translations provided by coworkers at the time I learned them):

nosvonamatar = "the smell is killing me."

kakaluta = "smells like s***."

cogular = that spelling is actually something in Portugese (you can Google it) but that's my phoenetic spelling for a Russian word that means "how are you" (I think - haven't used it in awhile).

Now you know. ;)

@impurestcheese, @batkevin74: Guys, I love 'em both, but I had to pick one, so I went with ImpurestCheese. Napoleon and his jelly-throne are fantastic, but I liked the B-Movie horror vibe I got from the Ai Apaec piece. :)

@batkevin74: Yeah, that makes sense. That's why "complaint" was in quotes like that - I know you're just starting on it. ;)

@g_man: Cool covers and all, but doesn't "Exclusive First Look" usually mean a peak at the content? Not slamming CV at all - it just seems like Dynamite said, "Uh, yeah, just send 'em our Previews solicitations. As long as they promote us, who cares?"

@ruler: First, I am not making fun of you - serious question: is English your first language? If not, you may want to write this in your first language, and have an online translator put it into English for you. It won't be perfect, but it should be better than what you are showing here.

Second, are you trying to write a story, or are you wanting someone to role play with you?

Woohoo! First! ;)

EDIT: Okay, I had to read it before I could post a comment. I liked this quite a bit. My only "complaint" being that I still don't feel like I know the characters very well. Meaning: I look forward to reading more! :D

@racob7: To clarify, since I was typing quickly from work earlier, what I'm suggesting is if you have more than one idea for this, explore them both. You may find that you have stories in mind for both a peak human guy, and a super-soldier guy. Right off the top of my head, it might be cool if your peak human was looking for/ trying to stop the super soldier - that fits the tradition of the badguy being more powerful than the goodguy (and therefore more of a challenge). It could be interesting to flip-flop it, and have the super soldier frustrated by the fact that a peak human keeps giving him the slip.

The rumors being that he has appeared across history, maybe Manslayer is an immortal, or maybe he's a generational lineage (like the Phantom, or a title (like the 007 designation), or a group (like the Scourge that ImpurestCheese mentioned).

Not telling you how to write it - just brainstorming for my own enjoyment. If you like any of those ideas, and hadn't thought of them already, feel free to use them. If not <shrugs> I had fun. ;)

@impurestcheese: Dude - way to hijack a thread. I saw the list you made, and that was it. PM me with any more. ;D

@batkevin74: "...or the aliens tale." Yeesh, it's Nosvonamatar vs. Earth. lol
