The villainous version would be, “This city is MINE!” Optionally followed by,”Muahahaha!”
Well, what else would you expect from this comic; this is how most super heroes express themselves as the epitome of super-redundancy.
You cant like…OWN a city, man…
I’m pretty sure Batman could literally own Gotham if he really wanted to.
As Bruce Wayne, he DOES own quite a few large chunks of it…
SHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Don’t let the cat outta the bag!!
No one is supposed to know BW could fix Gotham for about 1.5B but, prefers to Batman because he really is just another one of those costumed crazies…
McGinnis: “Kids. You collect ‘em, right?”
I don’t think just throwing money at the problem would solve much. Maybe if he took a two-pronged approach…
No, my joke is: In making the character so financially powerful, they accidentally gave him both the means and motivation but, not much agency in working on the social problems that made the city a sh** hole.
He spent more on the Watch Tower, an orbital weaponized platform he KNEW was a UN treaty violation, than he did on social reform.
From that perspective, he’s not trying to fix anything. Gotham is his punching bag. He could do more as a full time philanthropist.
Either that or, B Gates’ mansion has Batcave under it…
You can’t own a sibling or a country either, but that’s still how we phrase it.
I’m sure Flying Fox Man owns a sizable chunk of Shitropolis.
…tell that to Disney!
well i can, but thats because im not a penniless hippy
Well, “my city” is more shorthand for “the city to which I belong” (just like other “my X” statements) so the ownership is really two ways
What if the CITY is the real villian and has mindcontrolled all heroes to worship it, protect it and practically live for it to continue to grow bigger and bigger as more and more villians fail to lay waste to the city and people come because they feel safer there due the many heroes? <.<
That…would be an amazing idea. Has anyone used it in comics before? The only living cities I can think of are from one bloke who could listen to them, and they seemed mellow there.
Also, so using that idea for next superhero rpg!
A good long-term plot thread there…
For a darker, more oppressive mood, you could lead your players into some pretty severe levels of paranoia.
No they’ve only had a living street in the comics (Danny the Street), no living city yet.
I think one of the Discworld novels had something like that as the B-plot
One short-story had the protagonist realizing that cities were alive and somewhat malevolent so created a bomb to destroy the city but made the mistake of thinking it wouldn’t kill or even harm him after revealing things only for him to ‘accidentally’ get caught under rubble from a construction collapse and slowly tortured by it so he confesses everything to nearby construction workers who rush off to stop the bomb at which point the city finishes up and kills him because he knows too much.
Sounds cool, espcially if you start with the heroes defeating villians left and right in the RPG beginning, then slowly realize how more and more heroes get “born” into this city, somehow “receives” superpowers and uses them “for good to protect this city” and then mid-way in a way get the relevation (maybe through a hero who freed him/herself from the mind control and is now considered a rouge hero/terrorist due wanting to destroy the city?) that the city is alive and behind this whole hero-villian play to get bigger and stronger the more people live in it and then they have to find and destroy the “heart” of the city while the city and its mindcontrolled citizens/heroes will throw everything and everyone they got against them as the heroes had become the “villians who wish to destroy the city we all live in and for”.
Man, that sounds cool to play with a good GM! :D
There was an original-series Doctor Who story in which our heroes find themselves in a city built with hyper-advanced technology to function as a self-healing organism. Alas, the city was so much like a biological organism that it rejected its own inhabitants as an infection and created antibodies which destroyed them.
There’s a sci-fi novel like that as well, the greatest artist in human history designed living cities for humanity on another wasteland-level world (like the desert planet for Trigun) meant to take care of the humans living in them but after a while they conclude that the best way to deal with humans was removing them entirely from inside them after concluding all humans were defective forcing them to have to live in the barren landscape. Has a real downer ending with all the cities eventually killed including the one that was being returned to caring about humans (meanwhile the rest of humanity had decided to abandon physical bodies, being placed in perpetual stasis pods to explore the universe via telepresence projections instead so they’re the last pocket of humanity still actually living).
Don’t worry, it’s just Nasus stacking Qs. :D
(I’m terribly sorry about that. ^_^, )
Boxing glove arrow! (that is all)
Hey, I just noticed, that arrow is supposed to be a gag, write?
He really did have a…
Yes, but not about the TV show. The boxing glove arrow is one of Green Arrow’s most iconic weapons in the comics, albeit more because of how conspicuously silly it is than anything to do with how often he uses it (which is still a lot more often than you’d expect). Probably because heroes impaling people with fast-moving pointy objects is generally frowned upon, especially under the Comics Code.
Editor: “I want you fellas to work on this concept. Needs a name: Green Something or Other…”
Artist: “I haven’t colored that yet but, I think the ARROWS could be green.”
Writer: “Right. I love the whole ERROL Flynn. It’s all swash-bucklin’ and ARROWS!”
Editor: “How come you people GAVE ME this concept where the protagonist’s primary prop is a lethal weapon? No one said anything about arrows! How are YOU going to fix this?!”
Bleh, a place can be YOUR home even though you don’t own it – weak punchline….
Love it, neat joke on the often overused and overly dramatic statement!
I can’t even get to the punchline. I keep staring at Robin Hood’s crotch (Robin’s a non-gender-specific name, right?). Or is it her hip? Aaaah! She’s got two right legs! Hold your finger over what’s supposed to be her right leg, and suddenly her left leg becomes her right leg, she’s facing sideways, and her former crotch becomes the side view of the curve of her shapely buttock. I can’t unsee it!
