    No electrical powers, but Marvel's Thunderbolt and the Ultraverse's Zip Zap are both black speedsters with a lightning motif in their attire. It is an interesting phenomenon.

    If memory serves, the Hulk did once when the green guy had been empowered by Apocalypse to be War. But it's been quite a while since I read this story and I don't remember if there were other factors ...

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic Should Marvel bring back the Malibu Universe?. on the Malibu board

    I don't know that I'd support introducing Ultraverse characters into Marvel 616. I don't trust that they'd be handled any better by Marvel now than they were back then. Better to keep them separate...

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic Who Is Your Favorite Character from Malibu Comics?. on the Malibu board

    It's kind of a toss up for me between Alec Swan (Firearm) and Sludge. Favorite ultraverse villain though, hands down is Rafferty.

    @mundus_magicus: That is true. So Abner had better be certain his battle computer and targeting system are in good working order to maximize his odds.

    Maybe he's a fan of the old Werewolf tv series?Or it's just a random monster illustrating a bit of darkness that is The Void peeking out.

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic Sasquatch vs Mr. Hyde. on the Battles board

    Sasquatch is a bit stronger, and with his healing factor, a bit more durable than Mister Hyde. Hyde is a more accomplished fighter and likes to play it dirty as they come. I believe currently both r...

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic Beetle vs. The Lizard. on the Battles board

    If Beetle can maintain flight and keep his range advantage, he'll come out on top. But, if he gets careless and flies too low (or foolishly lands), the Lizard could easily close the gap given his sp...

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic Who's more popular : Dracula or Darth Vader?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Dracula, most definitely. In addition to his multiple appearances in all forms of media, I've heard (don't know for certain) that Bram Stoker's Dracula has the rare distinction of being the most wid...

    I see an evil Tony Stark remaining a weapons merchant rather than becoming a dictator. Ruthless and powerful he'll remain a kingmaker and force behind the scenes instigating conflicts across the glob...

  • DWrathborne posted a message in the forum topic What villian do you think deserves a on-going?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Maybe a Bizzarro ongoing for DC. For Marvel, perhaps a series following the Ghost Rider (Ketch) villain Deathwatch as he rebuilds his old criminal organization anew.
