Come on OP let's be real here. Fairchild would never go for ya.
I don't give a fuck if she's a lesbian, Rainmaker is my waifu.
Can't we all just along and have a gen13 thread?
>is a lesbian
>but her only sexual experience was with a guy
It's nice to see some young fresh franks.
Gen13 is more about cheesecake art than any actual plot.
Fairchild was in New52 Ravagers, remember, leading a team of idiot teenagers? Yeah, that series was doomed from the start.
They had a tease in the back of supergurl book about a new gen13 series.
Even from the thumbnail I could tell it was Benes.
And you're not totally wrong.
By all fairness Grunge is the worst who never appreciates roxy and does nothing but ogle her half-sister.
Fairchild was definitely my wank fantasy as a teen. She and Velocity. Probably why I tried to talk my high school girlfriends into dyeing their hair red.
What, you don't keep "fun bricks" around your pool area? What do you do when you want to horse around?
Adam Warren's run was the best in my opinion, and that Bene`s art only ake it better, does anyone knows if it ever was compiled in trades?? i know theres one (i have it) but i can't seem to find the whole series.
shitty nu school art and white Rainmaker and Grunge is why this shit was DOA at the get go, no one who loved Gen13 in the 90's would ever support that slop.
also storywise Gen13 doesn't work in the Nu52 because Team 7 is so poorly defined, Gen13 was literally "Daddy Issues: the Series" through the first 60 issues before they just unleashed Adam Warren on it.
FINALLY IVANA'S CYBORG TITS MOTHERFUCKERS!!!
Gen13 was DOA when DC bought up their division of Image comics. Wildstorm gave them lots of characters to work with, but DC doesn't know what to do with its shit beyond Trinity and some high level league members. Oh, and deadpooling the fuck out of Harley.
>Writers can finally write openly gay relationships
>No one draws sexy cheesecake art anymore
It's not fair!
We have to protect the public from images of imaginary women.
I remember watching the movie as a kid and while I thought it was an X-Men rip-off I still loved it and always wanted to check the comics but they looked "too adult" for me and said I would check them out when I was older which by the time that happened the comic didn't exist anymore and I wasn't interested.
Is it worth getting into?
Chris Claremont was brought in to write an all-new, all-different Gen13, but the new version was not terribly good and poorly received. Set in an alternate universe, the story featured a strangely alive Fairchild mentoring an all-new team. This version was cancelled after sixteen issues, ending with the resurrection of the original team.
I'd follow that man to hell and back.
There's a 20 year gap between his prime X-Men period and Gen13. He might have done better if he hadn't needed to establish new characters, but his best days were long gone by that point.
No one unless you're someone who's been involved in the industry for a while (Frank Cho and the like)
Then again, considering what the industry's like these days, do you really care what they think?
(and by "they", I mean Clickbait sites like The Mary Sue) You've got nothing to lose really. If you're a startup, they won't go after you because you're a blip in the radar.
No specific reason, I just enjoyed the tone and the fleshing out of the, let's be honest, initially flat characters. Her and Adam Warren are basically the best of the people who wrote that team that I saw.
And I read the whole damn thing.
>lex luthor colors
I bet she's the mole
As long as Ellis doesn't do it it's fine. Although its best artist is dead now.
I do remember an uptick their from their initial launch, but I can't remember specifics of what happened there (I'm away from my collection at the moment).
Was that after meeting DV8 For the first time and Fairchild meeting her father and learning that she and Freefall were siblings . . . Or am I miss-remembering.
I think they met DV8 pretty early in the series, while Campbell was still doing the art. I think it was during Arcudi's run that they found they were sisters but it may have been during Fire From Heaven, I can't remember too well either.
I think the belt is from her previous costume.
Don't you have any pics of rainmaker and her fly butt?
That's honestly why I enjoyed the Gail Simone run so much, because of the character work within it.
In their original origin, only Fairchild had any real humanity to her. They developed some over time as they removed themselves from 'sersious' 90s fair to more light hearted stuff. In Simone's run, that happens right off the bat.
But I will probably always remember one moment from that original run that helped define Fairchild. She just took down guards trying to kill her, and she checked to make sure they weren't dead after she punched them through stuff.
It made her the only likable character for me initially.
Simone emphazised each character in her own takes on them. Hell, the entire 12 issue arc was "They were made to be one thing, but fought against their origins and became something more."
Which is really a meta-metaphore for what happened to the gang to begin with.
It was a little on the nose, of course, but I don't mind ham and cheese in my stories.
Speaking of which, can WildStorm characters be inserted in Arrow/Flash? I think Team 7 can work wonders as something Eiling and/or Waller cook up in response to the rise of metahumans.
Yes, There is no ordinary heroes, the Gen13 annuals by Ellis, and the Superman/13 crossover. Also the Adam Warren run is the best.
>undressing in front of a lesbian
Is she oblivious or just a tease?
Catlin is innocent as fuck most of the time. It's contrasted with the fact that she was constantly getting her suit ripped.
not on D.
Simone's run was the worst, and I hate you for even suggesting that fat cunt. PC garbage
The Gail Simone run ended up being this due to Executive Meddling. Wildstorm's editors flip-flopped back and forth over weather the Worldstorm re-launch of Wildstorm's titles were going to be a full reboot, a soft-boot or not a reboot at all, and then failed to tell Simone when they reached a conclusion.
It wasn't editorial. Gail is a full blown PC Principal type. The Gen13 kids are young and very ironic. Rainmaker is an obnoxious Native girl who would bitch about micro aggressions. The reason this wasn't infuriating was she was contrasted with the other characters, some of whom were guys who just made fun of her bullshit and some like Catlin would call her on it. The book was fun. It wasn't supposed to be preachy. Gail instead spent an entire issue out of her first seven solely on Rainmaker angsting about how hard it is being a lesbian. Another issue had Catlin lecturing people about the evils of hunting.
meh, about as well as can be put.
After being bought by DC and the success of the Ellis Moore series that started around that time, it was deemed that Gen13, at the time written by Adam Warren, was out of touch with where windstorm was going creatively. Wildstorm executives had Warren kill the whole team in a touching final arc, and then reboot them. The new series was written by Chris Claremont. It only featured Fairchild and it lasted for about two years before popular demand caused both that series to be cancelled and the old Gen team's resurrection. Simone got the assignment to relaunch the book after Wildstorm rebooted their whole universe. On the surface, It wasn't a bad idea.
You had Morrison and Gene Ha on Authority, Lee and Morrison on Wildcats, Mike Carey of Lucifer fame joining While P. on his baby Wetworks, and Azz writing Deathblow.
Unlike those, Simone had the problem of her cast being by and large dead last they were seen (because everyone wanted to forget the Claremont run). There is no counterargumetn here. You just don't like her writing for political reasons (and you have a sandy vagina).
Then it all fell to shit. Morrison wasn't interested and only turned in two Authority issues, and one Wildcats.
Despite putting in quality work on Deathblow and Wetworks, neither series picked up. Simone lasted thirteen issues before handing things off to Beatty and Gage and a string of others. But really, the series just kind of stumbled, continuing on the path Gail set it on. Nothing spectacular or interesting. The chance was gone.
With there Flagship titles dead in the water. Wildstorm was through. It stumbled to the reboot, a shadow of its former self. Its creative talent plundered for the glory of the main universe. Then there was the flashpoint, the awful, terrible flashpoint.
Get back to your SJW websites you faggots.
You're that crazy guy from "The Most Dangerous Game' that hunts people at his private island, aren't you?
Because otherwise you wouldn't ignore the sentient part of that post.
You're literally making things up to be mad about at this point. Which is honestly something I've seen from SJWs more than posters here. But . . . pic related.
You think using the same phrase would be an intentional key off or something! Truly an intellectual giant is among us!
And here I thought I was just pointing out really bad reading comprehension with a classic South Park reference. That makes me a SJW somehow!
Never knew it was that easy. I thought I had to castrate myself, die my hair, and pick a shitty girls' name to do that.
I did promised after work
She looks weird with short
>actually having the will as a youngster to avoid adult things
>actually having the endurance to wait until you're mature enough for it
That's the first time I've ever seen something like that.
Surprise it got the millennium edition treatment
