Well, lets see...
1. Post on KMC.
2. Extoll the virtues of your imaginary role model.
3. Pick said role model to win every match up regardless of wether he really would or not.
4. Liberal use of the word "LIES!"
5. Start spite threads against peers of role model in attempts to prove role model's superiority.
6. corner the market on bold red font.
I like to think of myself as a huge Superman fan considering me and -Pr- are making a DCNU Supes respect thread.
I'd say with Superman he has some crazy feats (planetary+etc)
And I think in all aspects while it's good to say it. I think it's better to get the scan before you make the argument. I think a lot of the reason arguments for Supes go against him is because we have a couple of people that go absolutely bonkers with explaining his feats (h1a8) for one. Then he won't post the scan.
I think if when we or people in the House of El say but Supes can shatter planets show the scan where he talks about it. When somebody says he isn't planetary +. Instead of bringing up non sequiturs show the Brainiac ship scan. Or Pre Flashpoint if that's what you're debating.
I didn't mean this as if to say Supes fans don't show evidence. More that as we know he has high level feats when going into debates you need to be prepared with scans so that the thread doesn't bounce off into a slanging match.
I often make large explanations with Sentry, as did Enzeru when he used to post on the Versus Forum.
LoB, you can all use a close up of this Super butt as a uniform avatar, to be more organized this year. (please log in to view the image)
Tack on your group's acronym, and everyone can say "the HOEs are all up in this thread!"
It sounds like a good idea to me but with a couple of precautions. I know the whole House of El thing is sometimes used as a bit of a joke.
now I don't mean that badly
What I mean is we have the LoB cursing (which is actually funny and that's a jokey side which I think is 100% fine.
But here is a problem I think if we were to work together while hardly any of us go mental with calculations we have Boardwalker and I know you McAbe find him a decent guy. He is a huge trouble causer. He starts the whole "Superman flying through a Multiverse".
And to be quite frank if we were to join up so to speak I don't want him hijacking the Sentry for his merits.
I have spoken before about the fact I have 2 mental disorders. And part of this comes with not an obsession but great interest in him. And I think if he says. Sentry is merged with the Omniverse it would greatly upset me. It upsets me how it butchers Superman as well.
Haven't we all noticed how he goes way over top and what happens? People on KMC will instantly begin to have a dislike for Supes because of a few people.
So if we could do it like this way.
We have 2 separate things.
We have the House of El that LoB and everyone else can make reference to.
So the jokey side where Time and LoB are arguing about who is the true leader or when LoB argues with Bada and stuff. You know just the general stuff.
But then we have the serious side. The side where we all discuss Sentry and Superman without H1 (in some cases) and Board Walker pseudoscience even by comic standards type talk.
Here is one thing we could discuss
Sentry and Superman are like 2 sides of the same coin.
(don't take notices of descriptions I give for power level as I am not making this a who is stronger debate)
Sentry is a man given Godlike power (the literal ability to do almost anything he wishes but he is given a human psyche to cope with it. Which is what makes Sentry what he is. What people often hate him for is due to them failing to understand the premise of the character.
For example like I was saying here is an example of the Sentry being notified of all these disasters.

Here is what happens to the Sentry. He is rendered still by the thought of all of these disasters.
Whereas Superman is a man (or Kryptonian male) not given but has enormous power but he has a comic psyche so when he hears the screams of people he can bring back the words of his "father" who can tell him not to do everything because it would be impossible.

Whereas with the Sentry he is driven insane by the mere thought of it. And it's only thanks to CLOC that he isn't driven permanently insane.
Sure, I agree with your points in general. I would also see our House, or maybe not a House but something else, as a serious approach to debates, with an own code of behaviour, like no bashing, no low or high balling, no disrepect etc.
LoB is a good guy and funny ^^.
I like BW because I am 100% positive that he doesn't takes his post seriously, he doesn't wants to start trouble he is just being silly and people take him far to serious, it's his thing and I can get some chuckles and I think that's all he wants, he really doesn't wants people to take his stance seriously.
He has his own house or club, don't worry^^. Our house should have people who follow our code.
Sure that's normal, because of some people here chars like Superman, Hulk, Wolverine (not anymore) and Thanos are hated.
I am down for this approach. We would have a name and an code and rep the chars honestly and without bias.
You are right. Sentry is a good way to show what would happen to a normal human if he was blessed with such powers, it would be simply to much, to hear and know about this suffering, having all those powers and still feel powerless to change something, or decide who to help.
Superman is like an idol made for us to show us the way, what we should strife to achive, which, even if impossible, should be our goal, to make the best of us, our abilities, ourselfes and our society.
I wish they would make a crossover, where those two don't duke it out but learn from each other and work/talk.
