Looking forward to this. Brings back great memories of the TV series.

As long as they’re including characters from the “Batman Beyond” series, I hope we get the Dee-Dee Twins….

Also: I hope WizKids makes a set based on another DC Comics’ animated series: “Justice League Unlimited”!

Really want a new Vigilante.

And finally see a Longshadow clix, preferably as a colossal figure.)

“Task Force X”

Saw the 5:30pm showing of “Suicide Squad”. Short answer: I liked it. Way, way more fun than “Batman v. Superman”. Caveat: I’m very forgiving of superhero genre movies.

More comments later, maybe tomorrow.

EDIT I:

As with “Man of Steel” and BvS, I end up liking the actors, really like certain “moments” (“character beats”), and certain scenes or exchanges of dialog between characters, and become really forgiving of some definite…. “choppiness”?…. of these movies overall.

For example,  “best superhero movie of the year”? “Captain America: Civil War”. Smooth, like a fresh jar of Skippy. Juggles a lot of characters very well. Story? Cap is trying to save his best friend and war-buddy. Who happens to be a wanted assassin. Who gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit, and is being hunted. Cap is defying the authorities and the public to do so. Unknowingly doing exactly what the shadowy “big bad” who framed his friend wants him to do.

“Batman v. Superman”? I still can’t really say why they were fighting. I get the Lex Luther’s machinations to make them fight, his manipulation of B and S, although the fight still seems like it shouldn’t have happened.

“Suicide Squad”: Twisty, turny. Wonderful character beats. Basic plot? Essentially “Government’s own ‘unusual weapon of mass destruction’ gets ‘compromised’, Task Force X is activated to remove the threat, hopefully without killing each other in the process.”

Still, I didn’t buy at the end that the “Suicide Squad” thought of itself as a “family”, although I did buy that Deadshot and Colonel Flag did respect each other.

Viola Davis was an excellent Amanda Waller. “You believe in friendship, I believe in leverage.” Spot. On.

Loved Harley Quinn. Had to remind myself she’s a murderous monster (easier to do when she was sharing the screen with The Joker).

Will Smith’s Deadshot definitely came off as more of a “We mostly killed each other” kind of criminal underworld assassin. Hope Smith does appears again.

Rick Flag was not a Captain America-style “straight arrow,” even stating how he’s had to “bury a few of his own mistakes”.

All the actors really owned their characters. Wish they hadn’t made Slipknot so disposable, but you saw it coming by the way he was introduced.

EDIT II: Thinking….

“Captain America: The First Avenger” is the only “Marvel Cinematic Universe” movie I can think of that had two definite opposing sides with their own visions of “how the world should be run” clashing, spiced with some of the usual “someone’s sin(s) of the past come home to roost”. (Maybe GotG?)

Most of the others seem to be “enemy came within” plus the “sins/roost” thing.

The DC Comics Universe” movies? Not sure.

EDIT III: 

Suicide Is Aimless – MTV: http://www.mtv.com/news/2914651/suicide-squad-margot-robbie-will-smith-review/ Best rundown of the movie’s faults.

DC Comics HeroClix Wish-List: The Cavalier (v1.1)

Upfront: I’m actually more of a “Marvel Zombie” (fan of Marvel Comics’ characters, like Captain America, Spider-Man, She-Hulk, etc.) than I am a “DC Drone” (fan of DC Comics’ characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, etc.).

That said, I like both superhero genre narrative universes, and have deep affection for Batman and his “Rogues Gallery” of adversaries. (And The Flashes “Rogues Gallery” as well. Flash, Batman, and Spider-Man probably have the most diverse and ‘iconic’ selections, for individual heroes. After that, the villains that are left get ‘associated differently’; Captain America has come to ‘share’ a lot of his adversaries with Iron Man, SHIELD, and the Avengers in general.)


Anyway:The Cavalier! Apparently been a “Bat-villain since the 1940’s era. I’d never heard of him before encountering him in an anniversary is due of “Detective Comics” my cousin had, back in the mid-1980’s.

Cavalier was/is a simpler, mildly gimmicky villain. Main appeal is his swashbuckling air, and his personal code.

HeroClix: In this new Era of simpler dial design relying on standard power with *maybe* some “inflections of individual character” via Traits ability or Special Power, he could be fun. Not a meta-game changing power piece. Just simple to play and fun. A Traits ability, maybe, that grants the player victory points if he “role-plays” this wannabe in an “Error Flynn” fashion? Dunno.
