Agent Carter Season 3 Episode 0

The man in the blue suit ran down the New York City street, panting for breath as he push himself to go faster.  The moon was covered by clouds and he desperately tried to avoid the glow from the street lights.  He occasionally glanced behind him, and slightest trace of movement drove him onward.  His right hand was still wrapped around a revolver, but he knew it wouldn’t do him any good.  He heard a creaking noise behind and above him.  He looked back and faintly outlined by the street li

Night Shift Episode 0

When the gods walked alongside Man, Shiva and his celestial brethren ruled over a time of enlightenment and tranquility.  But as is the case of all times of peace, it was not to last.  It came to pass that a race of demons known as the Raktabija broke free from their subterranean crypts and spread like a plague on the land, slaughtering all who stood before them.  Humanity cried out to the gods for salvation, but the prophecies of the Raktabija proclaimed that only a woman could destroy them.  A

Rakai'Thwei's CBUB Character Submissions

Here is a list of characters I have added to CBUB and they are categorized by their respective franchises. I most certainly will be updating this list overtime as more and more characters are added by me to the CBUB rosters. I hope that they will see matches of their own and grow records of their own.   But the Twilight characters were added so they could be jobbers.

It's the kind of outrageous sex and violence filled schlocky sci-fi grindhouse you might have found on direct-to-video or late-night cable once upon an age ago.  The kind of show where you see somebody casually pick up their own chopped-off arm and beat their opponent to de

Part 8 --Backstage of the Grand Arena, Verse City   Four television screens operated in unison by some tech operator named Steve or Chuck, or whatever. Amanda Waller didn’t care to remember his name. She could see the GCGBTC logo on his uniform and that told her all she needed to know. He was a lackey. A cog in the machine. Waller crossed her arms, disinterested in the content of the feed. Instead, she watched the control operator edit the broadcast in real time. Removing M+
