Sharing Day, Vehicle Edition


Via: FuriousFanboys.com

Your Sharing Day question for this outing is:

If you could have one personal vehicle in real life from all of speculative fiction (comics, movies, novels, what have you), which one would you choose and why?

I included the image just for inspiration, you’re not limited to just those ten, by the way.

In terms of what qualifies as a “personal vehicle”, I think probably the Death Star wouldn’t count (since it takes a whole crew to run), but a TIE Fighter would. I want to say Iron Man’s armor wouldn’t count because I don’t really think of a suit as something you “ride”, while a big Battle Tech mech would. But I am not 100% on that.

Some other examples might be Wonder Woman’s invisible plane, the Batmobile, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a TARDIS, and many more than I can possibly list.

I suspect the TARDIS will get a lot of loving, but for me, I want something that can zip around and which would be fun to drive or pilot. The idea of visiting other eras is very cool, but I’m not much of an adventurer and would likely end up broke, lost, and/or in a mental institution in fairly short order.

Instead, I think I’d pick Silver Surfer’s surfboard. It provides protection for the rider(s), it can go at Faster Than Light speeds, and it looks wicked fun to ride.

Let me know in the comments what personal vehicle you’d choose for your own in real life. If you like, in return for answering my question to you, you may ask a question of me on any topic and I’ll do my best to answer honestly and completely. Just leave your reply (and question, if any) as a comment. The goal is to learn a little more about our community!

  1. I’d want cursor, he’s a multifunction transport and companion!

  2. Yeah, gonna go with TARDIS on this one. Lots of room(s) to move around and not get bored in, plus it travels through space and time. I would, however, fix that busted Chameleon Circuit. I kind of want it to look like an old Mk. II Corvette Stingray.

    Question for all: if you could have dinner with any 3 people from the world of comics, living or dead, who would it be and what would be the highlights of the discussion?

  3. Ooo, this is a good one Jeff. I would say Speed Racer’s Mach 5! Who wouldn’t want a car that could jump over traffic, have deployable saw blades, automatic traction wheels and a homing dove thing…just to mention a few! AWESOME!!!

  4. The Atomic Punk

    I’m at work, so I’ll have to chime in later while I think. Just couldn’t help notice that below all these really fast and dangerous vehicles is an ad for Car Insurance.

    KEric: I’d want cursor, he’s a multifunction transport and companion!

    I love Automan! Well played!

  5. KEric:

    Nerd fail here on my part, but what’s cursor?

  6. McKnight57: Question for all: if you could have dinner with any 3 people from the world of comics, living or dead, who would it be and what would be the highlights of the discussion?

    I’m going to answer as if “world of comics” is the real world — artists, writers, etc. — and not fictional characters.

    For me, I’d go with Jack Kirby, Bruce Timm, and Alan Moore. I’d love to see how the old-school master Kirby would react to taking comics to animation, and to see the crazy directions the premier writer of the future would take things. Plus Moore just seems like a crazy fun dinner guest who’d be so random.

    I was going to go with the TARDIS as well, as for the three I would love to have a discussion with Alan Moore, Stan Lee, and Neil Gaiman the death of traditional print media and what they see as the future of the four colour world.

  8. Since I’m much more of a DC fan, I’d actually like to spend a good bit of time with Alan Moore, Geoff Johns and Grant Morrison. I’m a writer by training and I think it’d be cool to have three masters of the DC pen around to sort of pick their brains and discuss the past, present and future of the DCU. We could also toss around some ideas for future stuff or our favorite characters and some sort of Elseworlds scenarios.

  9. Dr. Shrinker

    One of the defining traits of the TARDIS is its lack of reliability. Personally, I want a vehicle that will actually get me where I want to go.

    I choose the Goblin Glider: fast, maneuverable, it flies, its too small for people to try and bum rides on and it looks cool. Okay, the constant trail of smoke indicates that its not the most Eco-friendly ride on the planet, but you can’t have everything.

  10. The Atomic Punk

    Jeff Hebert: Nerd fail here on my part, but what’s cursor?

    Shame on you! Automan was a computer-generated superhero. His companion was Cursor. A floating ball of energy that could create objects out of thin air by tracing their design. Really bad 80s TV. So bad it was good!

  11. Dr. Shrinker:
    One of the defining traits of the TARDIS is its lack of reliability.Personally, I want a vehicle that will actually get me where I want to go.

    It won’t always get you where you WANT to go, but it’ll always get you where you NEED to go.

  12. TARDIS for the capability to travel across Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. There would be so much I’d want to see and meet. That and the auto translator would be an awesome tool to have. That and plenty of rooms for various storage areas. I could live in the TARDIS and that is a plus. To get around a broken chameleon circuit and an unreliable vehicle, I’d get a new TARDIS, not the Doctor’s stolen jalopy.

    What he said. Except I’d probably go for something different for the Chameleon Circuit.

    Anyway, my question:
    Q: Jeff, what the heck is this?
    http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/Fail.png

    A: The same two items as this:
    http://i1111.photobucket.com/albums/h464/Kaylin88100/Fail1.png

    It’s the female version of the hand-arm you made someone for a contest prize, with the idea that it could be masked to like a normal item, not like a hand, with an insignia masked to it. So the actual question is this:

    Could you fix this glitch please?

  14. I’m going to pick a G.I.Joe Skyhawk – http://www.toyarchive.com/STAForSale/NEW2001+/GiJoe/Vehicles/SkyhawkComp1a.jpg

    I remember seeing this in the cartoons and comic book and thinkin’ what a cool ride to have. V.T.O.L., big guns and rockets, what else could you ask for whening driving to work or school.

    Question- Any update on dblade created items? Looking forward to those.

    Cheers!

  15. Lambda Class Shuttle from Star Wars, seemingly infinite fuel source, plenty of cargo and passenger space, heavily armed, can take off and land vertically, capable of hyperspace travel, I’m good to go in that beast.

  16. I might be showing my age, but I’d want Supercar from the Gerry Anderson supermarionation show. I’d settle for a four-seater triphibian orbital spacecraft that you can drive on the freeway.

  17. You nailed with a TARDIS. There just is no competition to that – fully working TARDIS blends into its environment, and can travel anywhere in time and space. I would never return home if I ever laid my hands on one.

    (most likely, because I’d get burnt on a stake or nailed to a cross in some distant era, but that’s not what I was originally going for)

    Speaking of which. Jeff. If you had a TARDIS, what would be the first place and time you’d go to?

  18. Kaylin88100: Could you fix this glitch please?

    I can’t find it — do you have a slot and set name please? Like, HandRight-Female or Tops-Male-Standard?

  19. ams: Question- Any update on dblade created items? Looking forward to those.

    He’s sent me a few but I haven’t started on them yet.

  20. Kalontas: Speaking of which. Jeff. If you had a TARDIS, what would be the first place and time you’d go to?

    Hmmm … I don’t watch Doctor Who (BURN HIM!) so I’m not 100% clear on all the details of how it works, what the limits are, etc. But I don’t exaggerate when I say the modern age in the Western world is pretty close to the best humanity has ever achieved. Reliable technology, working medicine, the ability to fly vast distances, clean water, abundant food, it’s like we live in the Age of Wonders. Until you get to the absolute worst off among us, we all live like the kings of old could only dream of.

    That makes it hard for me to imagine leaving it for some other time and place, because unless you were a noble or the uppermost of the upper class, life was pretty crappy for 99% of human history.

    So I’d probably go waaaaaay back to the Jurassic, making sure I have protection and to not step on bugs.

  21. Oh, Doctor Who is more like… temporal tourist. If I were to LIVE in any other era, it would be the future, but there’s just too many places and eras I would want to visit.

    Edit: As in, they usually just visit stuff. Not that you _can’t_ settle somewhere, but traditionally they jump all around the place (and time).

  22. TARDIS of course. Why? I am Doctor. ^^

  23. dr who is kinda like pipa middleton. pretty good… for england. that being said i think id hafta go with the surfer board. soar the spaceways? ok!

    as far as whod id wanna have dinner with from comics? i wanna say my idols like kirby, stan lee, neil gaiman and such. but that would just be me geeking out the whole time. id MUCH rather have dinner with mark millar and garth ennis. it would quickly devolve into a night of scottish/irish/ drunken debauchery. or frank miller so i could punch him in the face.

  24. I would prefer Orion’s cosmic harness…although he had to ride in a very weird pose, like sitting without a chear. Or maybe Silver Surfer’s board, or Mr. Miracle’s discs…well, anything that is small, smooth and won’t let me fall easily.

    I had a question, but thought about it for some minutes and decided not to ask, because it may sound incorrect and offending, so no question from me.

  25. Initially, I was thinking I’d like a classical Final Fantasy-style airship (like a cross between a chinook helicopter and a renaissance-era frigate, for those of you who are unfamiliar with FF’s 1-6), but then Jeff mentioned that it needs to be a vehicle that doesn’t require a crew, and while only FF4 (to my knowledge, I’ve only just begun FF6) had any visible crew beyond the main characters, the other games had ships of similar size, and so realistically I’d have to assume that they’d also need a crew.

    That said, I’ve narrowed it down to 3 choices that I can’t choose between, one for practicality, one for the fun of riding, and one for the fun of simply having:
    -Practical: The phase distorter prototype from MOTHER 2/Earthbound (the one that Porky/Pokey stole, so that I would’nt need by soul ripped out and placed into a robot, though I’d probably want it upgraded so it doesn’t mess up my body when it makes me immortal)
    -Fun of Riding: That hoverbike-type thing that Flash Gordon rides in the 1980’s movie
    -Fun of Having: Lone Starr’s Winnebago from Spaceballs

    Here’s my question for Jeff and pretty much anyone with Fantasy PnP RPG experience: In your opinion, what types of spells would you say are either unrepresented or underrepresented in Fantasy PnP RPG’s, and which you think should be represented or represented more often in such games? I ask this because I want to make unique spells for the game I’m making. As such, you’ll have to keep in mind the “flavor” of the magic in my game; that is, magic in my game is more of an applied science than in other games, in which a magic user would think certain thoughts in a purely mental language, which would cause chemical and energetic reactions in the brain, which then serves as “instructions” which are followed by arcane energy stored in the brain. The magic user doesn’t just think fixed thoughts for each individual spell, however; the magic user needs to actually know how the processes the spell enacts would work naturally (for example, there is no thought that simply throws a fireball at your enemies; the magic user needs to know how fire burns, then how to use arcane energy to not only create fire, but also what thoughts cause the arcane energy to create fire, then what thoughts cause the arcane-powered fire to move toward the enemy, etc.). In other words, while I appreciate any and all input, some input I may receive might not be applicable.

  26. “Personal transport” rules out the NCC-1701 USS Enterprise (although Jim Kirk seemed to do pretty much what he wanted with it…)

    So, what’s left…. The TARDIS is a thing of wonder, but unreliable. All those awesome single-seat fighters from “Star Wars” would be great but I’d be spending my time wondering whether I was Wedge Antilles or Gold Leader. In any case, I preferred the Vipers from “Battlestar Galactica” – but they’re not much good without the accompanying Battlestar.

    Something that would be good, though – dead handy for the daily commute – would be Judge Dredd’s Lawmaster bike. No-one would put a ticket on that…

    http://www.comicvine.com/judge-dredd/29-30061/all-images/108-216287/dredd__6_/105-1694855/

  27. Probably Batman Forever’s Batmobile or Batwing, Epona from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the red Loftwing from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, or Superman’s flight as seen in the movies.

  28. My First instinct when reading this was to say a TARDIS, but upon further reflection I decided to Go with a Knight Industries Two Thousand, or a K.I.T.T.

  29. TARDIS! Seriously, I’d love to be able to go where and whenever it took me. I mean, you’d get to do awesome things like meeting dinosaurs, chatting with Charles Dickens over a cup of tea (or in my case, chatting with Isaac Asimov over a cup of tea), check out present-day alien civilisations halfway across the galaxy and go watch the Moon landings first-hand. Plus if it worked fully it could blend in and people wouldn’t notice it- unlike if you arrived in a blue police box (although I can’t deny- the police box is cool). Also, so much space inside for so much random stuff!
    If I couldn’t have a TARDIS, I’d go with Thunderbird 2- as long as the knowledge to pilot it came built-in or something- for no other reason than ‘it’s Thunderbird 2′. It’s always been my favourite Thunderbird, and it can carry any one of several pods that carry TB4 (a submarine), the Mole (that drills into the ground), Fireflash (puts out big fires) and a dozen others.
    I can’t think of a question right now, so I’ll think of one later.

  30. I’d love to say the Millenium Falcon, but while it can technically be flown by a single person, it really is better off with a co-pilot at least. And also, if Han Solo had problems keeping it running correctly after owning it for 15 years, I don’t stand a chance. And also, the thing is as big as a house.

    Instead, I’m going with Ted Kord’s Blue Beetle Bug, which seems like it would be small enough to be practical as a commuter vehicle, and yet large enough for some fairly comfortable vacation travel. And it would fit in the back yard. And has weaponry.

  31. dont usually do these but this once caught my eye and if any of y’all ever played Spy Hunter you would know of the Interceptor which is a car that converts to a motorcycle and boat. Who wouldnt want this?

  32. Hmm, I think I’ll go with one of my favourite vehicles of all time- Thuderbird 1!
    It can go impossibly fast, has worldwide commnications, is basically a VIP ticket to any military or top-secret institution, it blows up a load of stuff, and it has a Camera Detector! According to the comics, it can go into space as well! What’s not to love?
    Shame it gets shot down, stolen and almost crashed a few times though, but much less often than the TARDIS…

  33. Jadebrain: Here’s my question for Jeff and pretty much anyone with Fantasy PnP RPG experience: In your opinion, what types of spells would you say are either unrepresented or underrepresented in Fantasy PnP RPG’s, and which you think should be represented or represented more often in such games?

    It seems like all a lot of players want is to blow up stuff. Other than “Fireball” it’s a long hard slog waiting around for “Wish”. Which is ok, but not if that’s the only sort of magic user there can be. To me it’s a lot more interesting to have utility mages, who can do all sorts of interesting things.

    I always liked the engineering style magic system in “Master of the Five Magics”, where there were real-world laws about how to use magic. Once you knew the rules, and studied the components and such, you could really let your imagination go in terms of what you could do with it. Like an engineer — the laws of physics are set, but the more you get to know them and the cleverer you are, the more cool stuff that becomes possible.

    In other words, rather than a spell list, I think it’d be fun to say “here are the rules of how magic works, and here’s what you’ve figured out how to do so reliably you don’t have to think about it much any more. But use your creativity and experiment, if you can make a convincing case for what ought to happen I’m all for it.”

  34. McKnight57:
    Question for all: if you could have dinner with any 3 people from the world of comics, living or dead, who would it be and what would be the highlights of the discussion?

    I figure Brian Clevinger of Atomic Robo, Ryan Sommer of The Gutters, and Rob Liefeld. Since the other two have shown some contempt for Liefeld’s work, maybe if the three of us gang up on him over dinner, we could force him to quit. Probably won’t work, but at the very least, it might be a little cathartic to blast Liefeld to his face.

    Also, got a question for anyone really. It’s a little frivolous, but what do you put on your hot dog? I was getting one at 7-11 last night (I was pretty hungry, so I didn’t care), and found out they didn’t have saurkraut, which did not amuse me. Without the combination of mustard, saurkraut and onions, they’re just not the same.

  35. My first thoughts were along the lines of the Millennium Falcon, or Serenity. But for cruising around at high speeds, I think I’ll go with the Vertiech fighter from Robotech. With the added bonus of being able to transform it into a giant robot :)

  36. Myro: Also, got a question for anyone really. It’s a little frivolous, but what do you put on your hot dog?

Without the combination of mustard, saurkraut and onions, they’re just not the same.

    Not sauerkraut, that’s for damn sure! Blech!

    It’s ketchup, mayonnaise, and sweet relish for me.

  37. K.I.T.T. back when the Hoff was cool would be really tempting. Never pay for vandals or hit & runs or carjackers. . .cursor would be even more so, because of the multifunctionality. In the end, I’d probably have to go with the starship Enterprize. Lockout the controls for anyone but me and the wife. Timed beamups, selected beamdowns and never pay for parking again.

    Jeff? what’s your favorite example of meta-awareness? Not just in comics, but anywhere. Mine is when Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem read the screenplay and conclude with “This is a document of HEAVY DUTY PROPORTIONS!”

  38. Myro:

    Just ketchup for me. Boring, I know, but I don’t like onions and my tongue has a hatred of mustard. And I’ve never tried sauerkraut.

  39. TARDIS. Preferably with the Doctor as a tour guide. I mean, you can go anywhere, any time. Or you can explore the ship herself, and she’s pretty cool.

  40. Sebastian978

    I’m going with the Thunder cats, Thunder-tank. That thing was awesome. Really can’t believe no one picked it already.

  41. Jeff Hebert: Not sauerkraut, that’s for damn sure! Blech!

    It’s ketchup, mayonnaise, and sweet relish for me.

    Relish is for the weak! Also, I know I’m in the minority on this one, but I hate ketchup.

  42. Kaylin88100

    Jeff Hebert: I can’t find it — do you have a slot and set name please? Like, HandRight-Female or Tops-Male-Standard?

    Tops – Female Spandex, last item. Where you put it. I don’t know if the glitch is also in the male equivalent item, so you might want to check.

  43. Kaylin88100

    Mad Doctor: TARDIS of course. Why? I am Doctor. ^^

    Of course. Brilliant! :D

  44. Kaylin88100: Tops – Female Spandex, last item. Where you put it. I don’t know if the glitch is also in the male equivalent item, so you might want to check.

    I’m getting old, I can’t remember where I put things! Thanks for the tip, I don’t know why I looked everywhere but there.

    Anyway, it’s fixed now. There wasn’t a male version, just the female as that was the requested prize.

    Thanks :) I’ll try it out again tomorrow – it’s past 11pm, my time!

  46. What Jeff said about mages is the exact same thing I always thought. If magic was reliable and chronicled as much as it seems to in fantasy settings, you bet people would use it more often for quality-of-life improvements than for blowing up ugly green people.

    That’s why when I started designing my system, I made it skill based. Magic is just a list of skills you can take points in, and those skills are divisions of magic based on potential effects (like healing, conjuration, and various elemental destruction too). To cast a spell, you just choose a spell and attempt to perform an action with it, and your GM judges the skill’s difficulty and the roll needed (on the scale of 1 to 100).

    Sure most of the time people would just drop magical nukes even with this system, but I hope that it would lend to at least a few dwarven warriors who took conjuration for their bonus skill just to summon beer.

  47. MisterDinoMan

    I’m going with the Owl Ship from Watchmen, Archie. It can fly and it’s small enough to fit in my garage.

    Jeff, are there any comic story arcs your currently enjoying. I’m really liking the ‘Something to Fear’ storyline in the Walking Dead at the moment.

  48. The Atomic Punk: Shame on you!Automan was a computer-generated superhero.His companion was Cursor.A floating ball of energy that could create objects out of thin air by tracing their design.Really bad 80s TV.So bad it was good!

    Wow…I’d like to think of myself as at least minimally aware of all things geek, but I’ll admit to never, ever, ever in all my years of ever even hearing about Automan. Whodathunkit?

  49. Master81385

    My vehicle of choice would be the Rocketeer’s jet pack. My question for you Jeff is, are you going to be doing one of your superhero movie reviews for the new Spiderman reboot flick? I thought it was pretty good like a 7.5 out of 10 and was interested in hearing your thoughts on it.

  50. I’d pick K.I.T.T. from either eighties Knight Rider or the last show, but definitely not one of the ones from Knight Rider 2000.

    I prefer mustard and/or sweet relish on my dogs, or Hotdog relish. And just for the hell of it, I’ll add that I don’t prick my weiner with a fork. I prefer to eat hotdogs that have exploded.

  51. I want a Recognizer from Tron. Those are unbearably cool, and have enough room to live it up with friends. I would have gone with at light cycle, but with only one, that wouldn’t be as much fun.

    Jeff, Kind of an odd question. Should they kill off Gwen Stacy in the new Spider-man cycle, or let him have a happy ending? Do you appease the hardcore fans who want it to be as much like the comics as possible, or take the film making approach of allowing character growth and a real ending? I kind of want to see the latter. Due to things like actors actually aging and the like, we’re never going to get more than a handful of these in a single continuity, so we have no reason to maintain the status quo. We have an opportunity in the movies to see something we never can in the comics. An actual happy ending.

    Jadebrain – Mostly what’s missing is commercial magic. If you are a wizard, what are you going to do with your life? How do you make your magic pay? Throwing magic missiles at orcs doesn’t pay well, and is a good way to end up very painfully dead. In a realistic world, 99% of wizards are going to say fuck that and find a way to earn a living that doesn’t end up getting them shot at.
    In one game, I saw a mage who made good money casting various cold based attack spells and selling the resulting ice in a tropical region. A dedicated spell that didn’t do damage could have made a lot more ice to sell. Levitation lends itself to construction work as is.
    Look through existing spell lists and think “how could I make money with this?” and then come up with more dedicated versions that are more effective at that than they are at killing things.

  52. Dr. Shrinker

    John: Wow…I’d like to think of myself as at least minimally aware of all things geek, but I’ll admit to never, ever, ever in all my years of ever even hearing about Automan. Whodathunkit?

    To be fair, Automan was a short-lived and rather obscure series.

  53. Dr. Shrinker

    Mustard and relish for me.

  54. I’d have dinner with Joe Shuster, Jerry Siegel, and Will Eisner and serve them hot-dogs with yellow mustard. Kosher, of course.

  55. Well, The carrier would be nice. It does the same as TARDIS, but is a lot more reliable and convenient – especially the doors. Furthermore there would be enough storage space for all my junk. Of course carrier is a bit large for personal transport. If that is not an option, I’d go for the DeLorean time machine from Back to the future II (with mister Fusion and flying circuits). I’d have to modify it a bit though to switch that gasoline engine for a diesel engine that runs on any combustible liquid so I could travel to distant past aswell.
    I had a hard choice with that one. I was gonna say first Reconstructed Freedom Gundam from Gundam Seed Destiny, but then I remembered an ordinary human could not operate it. Maybe Zero Gundam from Gundam Wing.

  56. I’d want an ARC-170 or a Jedi interceptor from Episode III. Or possibly Jango’s Slave I or else a modded-out courier ship from the OLD-Old Republic. Hard to choose, really. But those are my favorite ships excluding a Lartie and a Venator-class destroyer, so that’s why. Also ’cause Old Republic ships and tech were cooler. Blue laser bolts ftw.

  57. A vessel powered by a small universe? Probably gets epic mileage. Where can I get one?

    Also, nothing beats the Silver Surfer’s board. Ultimate functionality AND stylish? Yes please!

  58. The Lawmaster would be cool. Along those lines I would go with the police car from Bladerunner.

    Don’t know enough comic writers to gather three for dinner. So, I’m stuck as usual eating alone. Which would be hot dogs with ketchup and mustard. To perk things up, I might add some Cheese Whiz.

    Sharing Day was yesterday, so no question this week.

  59. I am torn between the surfers board, brainiacs ship, and ghost riders cycle. I may have to go with the board. I would like to have the surfers powers, it may be cool to travel the stars too.

  60. Definately the Carrier. I haven’t read The Authority, but it still sounds pretty damn cool, like the love child of the TARDIS and the Death Star.

  61. Im torn between the Goblin glider and the Silver Surfers cosmic board.

  62. I’d say Mr. Miracle’s dics or Archie from Watchman. The discs are more portable and just seem fun to use and Archie seems like he’d come in handy ( what with the flamethrowers and what not).But if I’m gonna go with pure usefullness gotta go with a Jetson’s hover car. Super portable, travels at cartoonish speeds and, based on it’s shape, I assume is capable of space flight.

  63. I was torn between a perfected World Devastator from Star Wars, the Delta Flyer II from Star Trek, and the Heart of Gold from HHGTTG, but I think I am going to have to go with one of the most advanced model TARDIS out there, not merely for the exceptional travel abilities but also the level of technology it holds for things like immortality which nothing else seems to offer. Not the Doctor’s, mind you, for all the reasons stated above, but nobody else seems to have any trouble with theirs.

  64. Marty McFly’s time-traveling DeLorean! I’m surprised no one said it yet.

  65. I’d take either a LEP hypersonic attack shuttle from Artemis Fowl, the time machine from H.G. Welle’s The time Machine, or a Martian Tripod from the War of the Worlds. I would have picked Captian Nemo’s Nautilus, but that needs a crew…well, perhaps not. In the Mysterios Island, it appears that ‘ol Nemo can pilot it on his own after all his crew died, so that might be a possible choice after all. I’ll leave it for you to decide.

    My first thought was the Silver Surfboard, even before reading your thoughts on the matter Jeff. However, then the Tardis came up, and I changed my mind – not for the greater travel, across time and such although that is a plus. But for the progammibility and comfort of it. For the fact that it has a movable pool, and multiple libraries, and multiple control rooms, some of which are gone but can be brought back when needed. Rooms can be added or deleted, or moved around, and when the consciousness of an entire world found itself trapped in the Tardis with the Tardis’ consciousness, she was too huge for the planet to withstand. That’s awesome with a capital “AWE”! And let’s face it, the Gallifreyan jiggery-pokery lying around that vessel would be an entire set of adventures in and of itself.

  67. Just thougt of another couple things- A Fell Beast (What the Nazgul ride, who doesn’t want a giant dragon/pterodactlyl with screams that can paralyze an entire garrison with fear) and the Sun Crusher, a invulnerable spacecraft with the power to destroy entire solar systems by supernova-ing their star. In fact, I like this one better than all my other ideas by far. It’s small ( just a little larger than a TIE fighter) but with extreme power. The only way to destroy it is to drop it down a black hole and I’m not stupid enough to do that.

  68. A little more info on the Sun crusher- it has external laser cannons so it can destroy any distractions while it lines up its sun-crushing shot, say 100 TIEs for example. As an added bonus, due to its invincibility it can destroy capital ships by simply ramming their engines, bridge, guns, or other vital parts. Remember the A-wing taking out the SSD in Return of the Jedi by suicide-ramming the bridge? Same concept bit much more user-friendly.

    I know I’m gonna sound like a kid here but I gotta go with Tommy’s Giant Tiger Zord when he was the White Ranger in Mighty Morphine Power Rangers, loved that show as a kid and loved that giant robot.

    As for my question, Jeff where would I go if I wanted to post on here my super hero story? it’s still in the formulating stage but I’m hoping to start writing it soon and wanted to post up the chapters as I work, where would I put them?

    as for Myros question I’m a classic Ketchup and Mustard guy on my hot dog

    For McKnights question I would actually have to choose Stan Lee, Bob Kane, and -deep breath- Rob Leifeld.

    the explanation, I would bring Lee and Kane simply because, well, they’re two big players in Marvel and DC and I know it would be an interesting conversation between the two bickering back and forth, while Leifeld would be there because somebody would have to pay the bill for the big meal while the others split -evil grin-
