  1. Hi All. It has been maybe 7 months since re-opening the site. Thanks for hanging out and participating! Here's some of the things that I'm looking at for the site in the new year. Monthly Flash Fiction Tournaments - monthly tournament will resume with a new Rating system. The 5 star rating system that the forum has is cool but too limited. There is just not enough flexibility in the Forum 5-Star System to give more fine grained scores (like, say, a 4.5 or 4.6). So the Tournaments will return when I build a new rating mechanism for our wonderful Match Judges to use. Fantasy Teams - the fantasy teams has been fun, I think. It is an evolving system, and is getting updates and changes based on feedback of it. We'll keep on playing and improving it as we go! CBUB Database - There are several Wikis out there which have data about the characters that are in the CBUB Database. I'm hoping to connect to those Wikis and use their data to make the entries in the CBUB database easier to use in battles. The VS Battles Wiki is one that could be really useful. Other Stuff - I'll keep fixing things or adding features when you bring them to my attention, of course. Just let me know. You can, of course, use the site features like the Blog section to post things that interest you. I use mine for the occasional Anime review. I would like the site to be the best it can be at what it is! All that said... the CBUB has returned to a very different world than the one it left. As far as getting new members goes, this is probably about as good as it gets. I point this out because some of you have asked or mentioned it. I've tried running ads and so forth - it's money down the drain to no effect. This is a very niche kind of website and this is not the halcyon days of the 1990's when comics were king and the internet was young. Anyways, this site is here because you asked for it to be here - and as long as you are entertained by it, that's really all that matters to me, personally. I'll just keep doing what I do and trying to make it better. Thanks!

  2. Codpiece would simply blow open the door to the museum and escape while disorienting the police officers using his sonic weapon. He'll punch anyone who gets in his way. He'll rocket them. He's unstoppable. Stilt Man stands no chance.

  3. Wait, I won? Well, what do you know? After making four semis and three straight finals, I finally lucked up and won one of these things. 😛 First of all, I want to thank everyone who's competed in these Fantasy Drafts and made good picks and fun, compelling arguments for their characters. Also, thank you for those that had enough faith in my picks and arguments to allow me to get the win this time out. Also, thank you to Movie-Brat to making such a good Draft team that allowed to to make your first Draft final. To be honest, a couple of these match-ups could've gone either way, votes-wise. Definitely nothing for you to be ashamed of, man.

  4. This has been one hell of a CBUB debate. Really a good throwdown. I'm siding with Raphael argument. Cass is the physical underdog and fighting out of her weight class. Nothing unusual for her but we are using MMA rules, so I think that favors Raph. Even if slightly.

  5. THE BOTTOM LINE Andel Sanap: Welcome back, everyone! This match has gone on for longer than expected, but we appear to be in the homestretch. Team Mortal Kombat has taken control of the Gorge, while Team Forever Red has been forced through the portal to TCC Arena. Al Rossi: The Gorge is littered with the bodies of various Rangers. I think I see Mack’s head over there by the remains of Cyrax. Meanwhile, it appears that Tommy, Jason, and Shane are the last three standing in TCC Arena. They’ve finished off Baraka and D’Vorah, and Cassie and Jacqui are down for the count, as well. Andel Sanap: Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Shao Kahn, and Mileena appear to be at impasse. They’re arguing by the portal. Shao Kahn: Enough of this, Raiden! Let’s go through the portal and finish this battle! Raiden: Shao Kahn! We don’t know how many of the Rangers are left in the arena! Sub-Zero: Raiden is right. We need to plan our attack. Shao Kahn: Bah! Cowards! All of you! Mileena! On to our final victory! Mileena: By your will, Shao Kahn! Al Rossi: But look on the other side of the portal! Tommy and Jason are standing on either side with swords drawn, and Shane has the Hawk Blaster! Mileena charges through the portal and… Mileena: ARRRRGH! Andel Sanap: And Mileena is down! Shao Kahn is right behind her but the other two Rangers strike with their blades! Al Rossi: And now Shane is getting to the act with his own sword! Shao Kahn swings his hammer wildly in a rage but the Rangers are just moving too quick for him! Blow after blow and Kahn is staggering! Shane and Jason grab a hold the Kahn by his arms! Jason Scott Lee (Mighty Morphin’): Tommy! Now! Tommy Oliver (Zeo): Alright! HYAH! Andel Sanap: By the Force! Connects with the Zeo V Flying Kick! Sparks fly and down goes the Kahn! Al Rossi: But out of the portal! Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion! Raiden blasts all three Rangers with lightning and sends them sprawling down the pyramid! Andel Sanap: Jason gets snagged with the kunai! Scorpion: Get over here! Al Rossi: Yanked in close and decapitated for the kill! Meanwhile Sub-Zero freezes Shane and smashes him into pieces! Tommy’s back on his feet but the end has got to be near! Raiden: You have fought valiantly, Tommy Oliver. Stand down and surrender. Tommy Oliver (Zeo): Sorry, Raiden. But a Power Ranger never surrenders! HYAH! Andel Sanap: Mr. Oliver charges ahead! He isn’t going down without a…By the Force! Al Rossi: Frozen to the ground by Sub-Zero! And nailed in the chest by the kunai! Raiden’s hand is glowing again and… ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAP! Referee: Winner: Team Mortal Kombat! Andel Sanap: Now that was most definitely a fatality. Al Rossi: That’s for sure, Andel. Mercy is going to be working overtime after this one. But Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion are the last men standing, and secure victory for their team. For Philippa Forrester and Andel Sanap, I’m Al Rossi saying good night for the Gorge! Frost: Ugh! Why wasn’t I used for this fight? Rita Repulsa: Ah, shut up, sister!

  6. I see Vandal Savage coming out on top in this scenario and thus becoming a worthy arch nemesis for Nancy Drew who then devotes her entire life and several books to finally taking down the ageless criminal.

  9. Hey everybody. It's that time of year again when we pay Amazon Web Services their annual fee for electric ferret. That's a big hit to the website budget, so I won't be running any prize tournaments for several months. However, you all should absolutely feel free to organize for fun tournaments if you would like to. Thanks!

  13. Sorry, your logic does not work for me at all. Corona beer has not suffered in sales at all despite sharing a name with a dread virus. In fact, as far as I understand it, Corona remains the most valuable beer brand whose sales have actually gone UP! Your premise is false. And also Cats rule, dogs drool.

  14. Skeletons (Undead): Found in most tombs and catacombs, and the standard undead companion to any necromancer. Goblins: Alongside Orcs and Kobolds, you'll find this creature in numerous myths and legends (and at the end of most adventurer's weapons) Lich (D&D): What do you get when you mix the stongest sorcerors or wizards in the land with a sprinkling of undeath - that's right, the spellcasting, terror inspiring, world conquering Lich. Nymph: the sexy ancient female greek type Imp: the small mischievous demonic type Bee from The Babysitter films: hot and deadly, the satanic killer is in the house.

  17. Thanks to Fox for keeping this going, the fantasy draft has become one of my favorite aspects of the site. Thanks to CT for a fun final round! I think this was the best of the fantasy seasons, not just because I won, but the scenarios and slots were more fun. I'd say my team was nicely balanced with The Dagda, Orks and Weird Al all doing well. Looking forward to next season!

  18. Some really tight competition this month. You nerd team captains are really getting the hang of this. You've all got an eye for talent. Join us again on Friday Nov. 27 when the draft for Season 6 opens.

  19. It is absolutely fair to call out when somebody is trying to leverage powers a character has which are beyond the intended scope of the slot. For example, Jinny Hex apparently has a green lantern ring laying around. Is it fair to debate a character using a green lantern ring in the Wild West slot? Not at all. So we ignore it.

  25. I'm not weighing in on the fight in total one way or the other, but I would definitely not say he dodge sniper fire point blank. He was already in motion and the shot simply missed him. That's really more of an anti-feat for the guy shooting. It shows that he's nimble enough that someone with a gun has a hard time hitting him, I agree, but it's a massive stretch to call that "dodging point blank shots"

  26. WOW! Two characters that I added are in a fight together as well as Chloe’s first official match. 🙂 I’m not sure who would win here. I would like for Chloe to get a win, but something tells me that Trini will get the most votes. I give the match a 5.0.

  31. Disney purchased Fox. Therefore the Aliens franchise is now owned by Disney. That makes Lt. Ellen Ripley a Disney Princess, and we all know that Disney Princesses are famously good with animals. Soon, she and the tiger are both communicating with passing birds and helpful dolphins who all help take the boat to land. And they live happily ever after.

  33. The first thought I had when I saw this match was that this should easily go to Vulcan. I mean, come on. Dude was fighting Black Bolt and Adam Warlock. Naturally, this is due to his powerset moreso than sheer power, but the point still stands. Then I realized what Marvel is doing with Captain Marvel. They keep upping her power level to the point where I genuinely think she's above Vulcan by a lot. She has absorbed black holes before. Vulcan has never shown that level of control with his powers. Stars are also out of Vulcan's reach, if I recall correctly. Captain Marvel's absorption powers are actually better than Vulcan, the big bad absorption mutant. Who knew. Captain Marvel wins.

  34. Given that Amazo went from “too powerful for the slot” to “powerful as a normal man” to “could he be one-shot by Iron Man?” to “watered down justice league” I’m not really sure how to vote...

  35. THE BOTTOM LINE. Heh heh heh heh! Hello, kiddies! That's right. Your old pal the Crypt Keeper was victorious over that pile of goo and his slimy sycophants. I lured them all into my refrigerated room and sealed it so tight that they couldn't even get out in their slime form. After a few hours all of them returned to lifeless dolls. Although it's a shame about that cheerleader. You gotta love a ghoul who'll stick by her man. Heh heh heh! Speaking of which, turns out that Gooey Gus isn't made from bubble gum, but chewing gum. Yes, it surprised me too, kiddies. I didn't think he looked chewish! AHHAHAHAHAHA AHHAHAHAHAHAHA! Heh heh heh heh heh heh.

  36. That's why I see Nadai taking this. I think Palpatine may have an understanding of building a droid and maybe even an advanced one at that, but Nadai is probably capable of making another Ultron or something even worse than Ultron. I just don't see Palps being able to create something to that extent

  37. I liked this match quite a bit, and I found it pretty neat how you managed to combine all three of these '90s characters into a single match. Props to you on that, it was pretty creative in its inception and its conceptualization. There were some spelling and grammar issues here and there but it was well done. For the match, I'm liking Gus here, true Slappy has a proven track record and is pretty hard to put down, but in a way, I'm thinking that it will be much harder for him to defeat Gus than it would for Gus to defeat the latter. Reason being, Gus may move slow and be lumbering, but his gum is nearly impenetrable if it hits someone, and his body, in being made of gum would prevent any real damage from being inflicted on him by Slappy, unless Slappy manages to get his hand on cold items to attack Gus with in such a sort period of time, unlikely but possible. Crypt-Keeper would likely hold a bit more of an advantage here against Gus, although I am inclined to think Gus might still be able to defeat him as well, as certain episodes of Tales from the Crypt didn't always go on the way that the Keeper was hoping for, in terms of the bookends, so Gus still has a shot based on that. Slappy vs the Keeper would certainly be closer in terms of a winner, but if it came down to that I could also see Slappy prevailing, though it would probably be about the same amount of times as it would be with Gus, perhaps a bit more, perhaps a bit less, but not too much further beyond that probability.

  39. 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; Everyone slept soundly; except for there next to the shelves, Low and behold, twas not one but two massive big elves! Swords and spears they carried, and bows as long as an arm, Smiles on their lovely faces, that promised each other much harm, For these weren't jolly Christmas elves, oh my dear no, These were warrior prince elves; that deadliest of foe! They clashed together with thunder and wrath, And the Christmas tree lay shredded in their path, They laughed as they fought, a most terrifying sound, So stay in your bed kids, lest they put YOU in the ground! Merry Christmas everyone! Hope Santa and some jollier elves that this visit you soon!

  40. Clarence Odbody could take them both on a journey of what life would have been like had they never met. Throughout the Batman series, and especially in the Arkham games we learn about the dysfunctional relationship they have and how they are the challenge that the other craves. By the end of their journey they’d feel grateful for each other and exchange gifts. Possibly even build on a sort of mutual peace. Maybe Clarence Odbody was the true hero that Gotham deserves.

  41. Steve Fox returns to the THUNDERDOME... Dome... Dome... Dome! Will he be second time lucky? I guess we'll find out. I personally like Rocky Balboa here, though. No reason besides an image in my head of Balboa flying through the air while wielding a chainsaw and screaming "Adriaaaaaane!"
