    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!

    The site is open. Registration is open. The core features seem to work regarding Matches (start and stop) and adding Characters. The Forum has a lot of features. It's pretty fun. Changes: Rated matches now occur via the Stars rating 'Rate This Topic'. Any forum member can rate a Rated Match ... and are encouraged to do so! Members titled as CBUB Match Judge get their ratings counted X3. Points by rank There's still 5 ranks, with 5 being lowest and 1 highest. There used to be an arcane system whereby certain ranks could only be achieved after a certain number of matches had been created. That's all been removed. It's just a flat system based on your current weighted average regardless of number of matches. Added more points to rank 5 so newbies can make more matches. now 4, up from 2. So anyways, it works. It's probably not a great website to try and use on a Mobile phone. It's only been open a couple days. Could be awhile before there's more people here. I'll look into repairing the Fantasy Draft system. Maybe we can get one going in a couple weeks. Thanks!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in September. I have seen a lot of great and memorable matches over the last few months. Who could forget Bergy_Berg's three-match story or SSJRuss' 'Beetlejuice vs. Batman'? September was no different and... dare I say... I think the bar has even been raised. I will have to personally re-evaluate what I consider a '5-star' match in the coming months. They are just all that good. Thanks for all the great reads!

    First I want to thank God and Meryl Streep. I'd like to thank DC Comics for making Batman a stupidly OP character. I'd like to thank the system for giving my characters generally favorable matchups and scenarios. And I'd like to thank my opponents, who drafted such shitty strong teams to contend with.

    OOC: @SSJRuss you're up first against me. IC: Where did Erine go? Looking around it's as she has vanished, disappearing suddenly from sight. Suddenly, out from behind a crate pops up masked woman! She resembles Erine in body size, but her face is concealed by a empty sandbag with crude holes cut out for the eyes and mouth! Who could this be?! The masked fighter turned and pointed at none other than the tranquil turtle himself, Farley. "Hey turtle man! You're going nowhere. I got you for three minutes. Three minutes of playtime!" Not Erine shouted out, hopping into the makeshift ring.

    One day, several weeks ago, at the Church of Healing Unity soup kitchen Komi was doing her usual job of helping to feed the needy who came in, and some of the acolytes too, as they often ate there as well, to socialize and evangelize the beggars who came in. It came to pass that a particular winged tiefling was the last in line for the meal. He smiled a lot and always tried to talk to Komi but she was too shy so far to respond. This time - panic! He was the last in line, so there was no one else to focus on! When he asked if she would sit with him and eat, there was no way she could refuse! Numbly, she nodded and grabbed the lunch she'd packed for herself - that she intended to eat out on the balcony, alone, and followed him to whatever table he chose to go to. Komi had yet to say a word. She had never been among the people who scorned him, at least among their peer group. Though it was mostly an attitude carried over from the more conservative members of the faith, nonetheless it had been something picked up by everyone else. As though a tiefling was something to be hated, despised and even feared. Nothing open of course, there were far too many eyes for it. It was little things. Teachers would ignore him when he had questions or mock him if he didn't know the material. He'd practice alone or with those who didn't feel that way, scarce as they were. Food would sometimes be burned or over salted when given...Little things. But not from her. His food was never harmed when he came in line after finishing his work here, though she had yet to speak back. They were in the same age group he knew that much, though growing up she had always been quiet too.She never laughed at him anyway. That put her in the clear minority. Now finally, here they were...Eating together before he finally spoke. "I'm going to leave in a week." Komi stared at him for a long moment before saying, softly, "You shouldn't quit. I think you are a very sweet person." She was blushing furiously and looking down at the remains of her lunch. She had a very artfully crafted charcuterie of meats, cheeses and delicate bread slices that she'd meticulously assemble into tiny sandwiches one at a time. There was only enough left for a couple more of these at this point. "You shouldn't let bullies run you off." She added, staring firmly at a particular piece of bread that was vaguely heart-shaped. He blinked and then smiled warmly at her. "That's sweet of you to say. But that's not why I'm leaving...Well, not entirely." His fingers stroked the handle of his sword in a contemplative gesture as he spoke on. "I'm taking my Quest for Truth early. The Abbot thinks I'm ready and so do I. I figured I'd start off in Eastrun City." He took a few bites of his food, swallowed and went on. "They're having a shortage of adventurers and I figured I could hone my skills and start off there with Jessamine." There was so much to unpack there. She had been told she was ready for her Quest for some time now, but she was too meek to go on her own. The embarrassment continued when he mentioned Jessamine. "Jessamine is your... girlfriend then?" She kept her eyes off of him, busying herself with making her next mini sandwich. He snorted with laughter. "No. She's my partner." He held up his sword as he added dryly. "After Master Jinn took me to....Er, celebrate my eighteenth birthday I found her in a corner calling to me. She's a spirit who lives in my sword and loves to flirt with me for some reason. I expect its mostly just a reaction." There were at least four blinks before Komi spoke, and the bonnet on her head seemed to ride higher than usual. If Corvo was observant enough, he'd make out the outlines of the Neko ears that manifested when she was exceptionally startled or surprised. She knew she had to say something so she offered up a random fact about herself. "I'm nineteen, myself." He smiled. "Me too. I've had her for a year now and some months." He placed the sword back and leaned forward as he added. "I know it's normal to wait. But I feel ready. And I didn't want to leave without saying goodbye to possibly one of my few friends here." If it were possible, her eyes widened further. "I'm.... I'm your friend?" She looked at him for a moment before she looked down again and devoured her second-to-last sandwich so she'd have an excuse not to say anything more. Only one excuse left. She thought to herself. He blinked and then looked briefly unsettled as he asked. "I'm sorry if I made a mistake. It's just...Well, never mind then." Her mouth opened. No words came out. Quick! Do something! Her inner voice told her. So she grabbed his hand, almost violently. Words would not come, so she just nodded furiously, which caused her bonnet to slip back, revealing the extra set of ears that showed up now and then, followed by a squeak as she used her free hand to attempt to cover them up, to little avail. Oh. That was forward. He could feel his sword almost burning, though curiosity compelled him to look closer. His free hand reached out, gently tugging off her bonnet as he blinked. "...Are you like me?" There was a brief note or wonder in his tone before he chuckled and said warmly. "I like it. It's cute." Komi shrugged and shook her head. "...N-no. I don't think so anyway. Both my parents are human, but now and then... this happens. Maybe I have some tabaxi or... more likely, kitsune... in my lineage somewhere. I..." She paused and shrugged again. "...I can't control when it happens, and they go away after awhile. It's why I always wear a bonnet." Exceedingly self-conscious now, she realized she was holding his hand and jerked it back, as if she'd burned herself. "I... I think I'd like to be considered your friend, Corvo." He smiled, a little shy and quite happy. That was a turn of phrase he didn't hear often and it was nice to hear. He just wished it had been done sooner. He would have known her better as he said suddenly. "So when are you going on your quest?" She squeaked again. "...I don't know. I suppose soon, but I should give them time to find a replacement for me." She tapped her forefingers together. "What if I'm not ready? Do you think I'm ready? I could maybe... Find you in Eastrun?" He nodded. "Yes. I'll be there. If not working." Komi looked around nervously - as if she did much any other way, then leaned forward lightning-fast and kissed Corvo on the cheek. "For luck." She stood up. "I should go help them with the dishes." A quick bow and she was gone, fluttering back to the kitchen. One thing he did notice though, that when she retreated, the cat ears had disappeared again.

    Hello CBUB Fight Creators You may recall that CBUB Tournaments were a thing back in the day. And, you may even recall that these contests of CBUB match making skill had a prize for the winner. Next month we look forward to restoring this illustrious tradition with the CBUB June Challenge. Each Tourney contestant will need to produce at least 3 Rated matches of their choosing in June. The person with the highest FPA at months end will win. Person with top FPA will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. That's the nutshell version. I'll post a separate page with the contest rules before June. Could be fun.

    Sorry for not commenting on this sooner! I think this was an excellent write-up and the framing of Khazan was great! The idea of characters like Jiren, Joker, and Saitama just casually standing around as Yang and Fixit throw hands is hilarious. Almost feels like it'd be the backdrop for a 2D-fighting game with Jiren paying the battle no mind, Saitama just wanting to get the paperwork done so he can catch up the latest sale in the Khazan Market, and Joker and Bell just wanting to make it out of here in one piece. I can't really say I speak as an authority on Joe but after doing some research on him, I feel like I'm leaning more towards him! Yang's punches are definitely gonna be felt given the feats we've seen her pull off like punching away a Ursa just as big-if not bigger than Joe or smashing a mecha built for war with nothing but her bare fists. Joe's best bet would be to try and place Yang into something of a submission hold and choke her out before letting this drag out for too long. Because if he gets stronger and stronger and gives Yang one good punch, he's not gonna like it when she returns that same level of PUNCH right back at him. Awesome write up, my friend. : )

    It's coming along. Just trying to get the new character submissions working again. With any good fortune, might be able to open up the CBUB control panel and site registrations tomorrow. Definitely want to do a CBUB Fantasy Draft again. Good times. I'll look at the FPL next. It's very complicated and could be a lot longer before that is available again.

    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.

    With Redux taking at least a somewhat officially taking the place of the FPL I thought I would post updates here as well. With some more people using the system we're finding and squashing some more bugs that have been over looked up until now. At this point the CC seems to be bug free (now that I've said it I expect someone to prove me wrong), but at least the normal functionality is there. So before we get to the patch notes I want to give a run down of the current status. Character Creator: creation and submission of a character seems to be fully functional. Editing the text of a character in progress is not yet possible but should be soon. Along with that I'm working on changing power levels, adding/removing modifiers, and deleting powers from a character. Stories: Stories are a container objects. A story can contain any number of posts, and can link directly to character sheets (that bar code next to a characters name? Click that, it'll copy the link code for that character into your clipboard). A player can start a single story, and I'm working on the UI to be able to add collaborators to stories so that multiple people can contribute posts. Character sheets: Are not beautiful. There's some changes I plan on making soon. They still wont be beautiful. Forum: It's new, it's there. There's a few forums created. There will be rules, but for now be civil and we wont have a problem. Site design: Same quick rough design I put together last July when I started needing something more than totally bland pages. It's okay, feel free to leave feedback, it might change. Power descriptions: Most of them are there. Most of them are very quick and rough. There's a few that are still filler text. Slowly filling them in, if you want to write one feel free to send me a message on Discord or make a post on the forum. Fights: Fights work. We'll get them started when we have a few more characters in the pool. Progression along the tiers works. ME tier might be a little persnickity still because of how it's configured, but it will take a while to get to running a ME and I should have that ironed out before that happens. I think that's everything. As always if you find a bug, message me on Discord, or leave a message on the forums. If you have a suggestion, do the same, I'm happy to talk about it. 0.1.8.3 Update added an explicit click wrap agreement to PP and TOS to the registration Added link back to the CBUB Added link to the forums fixed a bug in the CC that did not accurately report the points spent when purchasing modifiers on a power. fixed a bug in the CC that did not allow a player to cancel a character in the CC. fixed a bug in the CC that did not allow a character that was resumed to be submitted immediately if it already met the submission criteria. fixed a bug in the CC that would fail a characters audit if it had bought a modifier on a power added display of the power modifiers to the power entries in character sheets and fights

    Cordova watches the conversation, her good eye darting back and forth as each individual speaks up. She thinks on the exchange for a moment, then speaks up. "Perhaps I have spoken imprecisely." She looks directly at Karen. "As registered heroes, it is your sworn duty to uphold peace and justice in this city. You are not vigilantes, and are not authorized to use lethal force unless absolutely necessarily. If you never find yourselves in such a situation, then good. However, I merely want to assure you that we have a legal team on staff that will defend your actions, if they are truly justified. I want you to know that no amount of force is too much in this war." She pauses. "Of course, if you can bring down the criminals without needing to resort to such measures, all the better."

    Howdy everyone, Please see the link below for a document about the backstory for this campaign setting. It's a bit odd, admittedly, but it's a mix of post-apocalypse and socio-political intrigue that I think will be very interesting. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bWytVvjUbfol5hsU-IjFltFXAOwCiUZ-i_VHQAW-yQk/edit?usp=sharing I will keep editing this document, and will post on here whenever I do if y'all are interested in reading it. As for what I need from you all now, I want each of you to think of a backstory that fits the setting and that has some interesting adventure hooks. I realize I forgot to mention this, but at the beginning of the campaign, each of your heroes will be recruited by a new Hero Agency to try to push back the gangs of the city further and expand the safe zone of Paradiso. For now, think of what powers you want your hero to have, your backstory, and maybe a few potential enemies they've encountered up to this point. Who is their Joker? Who is their Green Goblin? Or do they not have one? Are they brand new? If so, who from their past knows their secret identity? Who from their past might to motivated to help them? Or take up arms against them? Like I said in the other post, I want y'all to really dig into these backstories. Was your character involved with a gang, and is now trying to start a new life, haunted by what they did in the past? Were they raised in the safe zone, feeling immense guilt for living a safe, privileged life while so many others had to suffer and die? What did their parents do? You don't have to answer all, or even any, of these questions. These are just things to get the creative juices flowing. Please message me what you're thinking for your character, rather than posting it here. I don't necessarily want each character's backstory to be a mystery, it certainly doesn't have to be, but it's more organic and more dramatic if the other players find out about key plot details at the same time as their characters do, in my opinion anyway. EDIT: I forgot to mention, but the power-level is between street-tier and Spiderman level. Don't worry too much about that though. We'll figure that out as we go

    As we discussed on Discord last night, here she is. I trust you'll find a way to work her into the story. Picture: Name: Shouko Komi Race: Human Class: Cleric (Unity) Age: 19 Strength: 4 Durability: 7 Agility: 8 Intelligence: 10 Luck: 11 Charisma: 8 Backstory: Komi was an orphan from a young age when her family and everyone in the caravan she was traveling with were killed by bandits. She was taken in as a ward of the church of Unity. Though she has serious social anxiety, she is bright and very caring, and for some reason, astoundingly lucky. Sometimes her very ability to have trouble communicating works in her favor, as others often see it as very cute. She met Corvo at a Church of Unity while she was working in the soup kitchen (this is her favorite because all she has to do is share the soup and smile, no thinking of words to say there!) and the two became friends. Eventually, she made a personal decision to spread the word of the church of Unity, seeing it as personal challenge to overcome her greatest barrier - her own anxiety. Character Attributes: Human: (Ability Score Increase: Your ability scores each increase by 1.) Extra Languages (3, two from Acolyte and one from being human. Oh the irony.) Background - Acolyte - Feature - Shelter of the Faithful: As an acolyte, you Command the respect of those who share your faith, and you can perform the religious ceremonies of your deity. You and your Adventuring companions can expect to receive free Healing and care at a Temple, shrine, or other established presence of your faith, though you must provide any material Components needed for Spells. Those who share your Religion will support you (but only you) at a modest lifestyle. Spellcasting: Minor cleric spells at this point: Cure Wounds, Sanctuary, Shield of Faith, Heroism chief among them. Unity Domain :Emboldening Bond Starting at 1st level, you can forge an empowering bond between allies. As an action, you can choose two willing creatures you can see within 30 feet of you (this can include yourself) and create a magical bond between them. The bond lasts for 1 hour or until you use this feature again. An interesting quirk that Komi has is that sometimes when she's especially excited or agitated, she manifests cat ears on the top of her head. She can't control when this happens and seem to have no benefit beyond their sheer cuteness and a slightly extended range of hearing. Skills: Cooking, Insight, Religion, Medicine, Stealth Gear: Weapons - Mace (frying pan, actually), Light Crossbow and 20 bolts Armor - Brigandine Vest and Skirt, Leather Sleeves and Boots, Shield An Explorer's Pack - Includes a backpack, a bedroll, a mess kit, a tinderbox, 10 torches, 10 days of rations, and a waterskin. The pack also has 50 feet of hempen rope strapped to the side of it. Holy Symbol of the Church of Healing Unity A prayer book or prayer wheel, 5 sticks of incense, vestments, a set of Common clothes, Soap, 2-Man tent, Cook's Utensils, Fishing Tackle. 2 doses of Dreamlily Total Wealth (15 gp, including the money given by background)

    Cliff rolls his eyes at the statement. "Incredible how someone who wandered off and nearly died alone, after accomplishing nothing, has the gall to say someone else is feeble minded. Tell me, did you take lessons in being an insufferable prick, or does it come naturally? Be a shame if your only natural talents are alienating others and passing out in the street."

    We can only submit content from Wikipedia and an official site as links and profile text for now. Quote from Fox: To compensate, I'm thinking we can do how I used to do; when if a character doesn't have a direct Wikipedia page, look for the page of the medium the character originates from and link directly to the portion of the page that references your character. For example: Amon from The Legend of Korra no longer has a direct Wikipedia page, so one could instead look on The Legend of Korra's Wikpedia page and link to the section of that page that best mentions him.

    "I thought you said this would be difficult, L." Her voice emanated softly out of the comms, carrying both a distinguishable Brazilian accent and a hint of mockery as she stalked quietly through the halls. "It is." A brusque almost drill sergeant sounding voice bluntly stated, illustrating well his annoyance for her tone. "If you don't want to end up with a bullet in your skull and a mission failure on your record, knock it off. The security on this place is no joke, and remember, I'm the one who's gonna have to come and get your sorry ass out of there if you get cocky. So don't." Deadshot warned. "Is that concern I hear in your voice?" "Cute. No, the only concerns I got are the time and bullets I'd have to waste charging in there after you while you're laid out on the floor trying to recover." "So you would--" "Both of you, can it. Keep your minds focused fully on the damn job." A third voice cut in, interrupting their back and forth before it could continue any further. He was even more no-nonsense than Floyd had been. Deadshot grunted in agreement, but Scandal fell silent for a short time. A few seconds passed before she chimed back in. "Have no fear. You have no idea what passes for training in my father's eyes. I've infiltrated far more dangerous places than..." Her sentence came to an abrupt end as she caught sight of blood slowly spreading out from beyond a corner just ahead. "S?" She didn't answer immediately, taking cautious and silent steps up to said corner and poking just enough of her head around it to shoot a glimpse down that hallway. There were at least four bodies littering the hall, with the walls stained with blood all over the place. "What do you see?" "Corpses. The walls in certain spots look like Jackson Pollock paintings, if he only used one color. Someone else must be here for the data!" She hurriedly reported, voice as loud as she could make it without giving away her position. "..." "..." That made things more complicated for sure. Another person, operating on their intel? There shouldn't have been any competition on this job. "You have eyes on who's responsible?" "No. I'm going in." There was silence on the other two's end as they let that fully sink in...and no sooner than it had were they moving to gear up. Scandal may have ended up needing all the back up they could muster, with this unknown person or group of people crashing their party. A fourth person spoke up on their comms in the heavy silence, concern obvious in his voice. "Stay safe, little savage." She cracked a grin, hearing that. It was...still weirdly nice having someone that cared that overtly. Scandal stepped up to another corner, edged her head just around it and caught a glimpse of the target area of the complex. Yet before she could proceed, a noise just above her drew her attention...and a loud metallic clang echoed throughout the area as part of the vent came crashing down into the floor, followed shortly by someone dropping down from above. The kick came so fast she didn't have time to react, it knocked her back a few feet before the soles of her boots grinded her to a halt. When her gaze focused on whoever the hell that was, she observed a slender young woman crouched in a landing stance and delivering a scrutinizing glare right back at her. "...You." There was no noticeable response to that, the woman only answering with a stare. It was only a few seconds later, when Scandal was about to yell out some indignant statement, that she bothered to speak at all. "If you're here for the data, you're too late. It belongs to us. That means leave. Now." "No. Someone's paying top dollar for it, and..." Scandal brandished the lamentation blades far more threateningly. "...We always deliver." "So be it. I gave you a chance." *snikt* Two sets of claws shot out of her hands at once, weapons to match the other's. No more needed to be said between them. The daughter of Vandal Savage charged the clone of Wolverine, both their battle yells mixing together into a ferocious howl that would have made anybody quiver in fear at least a little bit, no matter how they might have denied it. ----------------------------------------------- So here we have it folks! The daughter of Vandal Savage, the immortal 50,000 year old who knows all there is to know about combat and warfare and passed much of it(as well as a degree of his immortal nature) onto his daughter in the form of brutal training sessions designed to hone her into a worthy successor to his legacy, vs the lethal weapon X-23(Laura to her friends) who was bred and trained from birth specifically to be one of the most efficient assassins that ever walked the Earth. That childhood, plus subsequent learning from the likes of her progenitor, Gambit, Daken, among others, makes her a fearsome combatant indeed. Who shall come out on top?

    Hi Vice, I need to state something first, I have nothing against you or your characters, so please don't take the rejections the wrong way, personal feelings have nothing to do with my decisions on said matters. If it ever seems that way to you, I sincerely apologize for that. Now, as you know there is some criteria regarding character submission now, that is different from the standards we'd set before. In regards to that, the criteria for the character reviewers has also changed. The following text found below is the criteria that each of the character reviewers can see when a character is found in the bins. "Character Admin Step One: Verify the link to Wikipedia goes to a page relevant to this character. Step Two: Verify the link to Official (copyright holder) goes to some reasonable destination for this character. Step Three: Verify the image is for this character and acceptable representation. Step Four: Verify text included is a paste from their Wikipedia page, linked above." Now, in regards to the text presented, some of the characters you've created don't adhere to the criteria presented for "Step Four", or "Verify text included is a paste from their Wikipedia page, linked above.", as they seem to lack the required text from their wikipedia pages, primarily that of Anthony Gallen, James Horton, and a few others that included that message. This is an easy fix though, as all you need to do is copy/paste a brief summary from their wiki links into the description by their pictures in the gallery, and I will accept them for you. In regards to some others, mainly your GTA characters, the information isn't really the problem so much as the information not lining up with the wikipedia links you provided, so in those regards, you may have to see if you can create some articles to accompany them on wikipedia, similar to this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Wars_Rebels_characters , but using GTA III text instead, now this may take some time, but it will allow you to insert these characters via "Step Four" in these other characters cases. I can see if I can help you with this matter, but I you will probably have to work on this, before I can help you further. Again, please don't take these matters as anything against you or your characters, I'm simply trying to adhere to the criteria which Fox has provided for the character reviewers.

    First off, I absolutely loved this. I liked the setting and Khazan having this bureau for all the new characters coming in was so fun. And nice touch adding the new submissions to the piece. I watch Rwby (except the last season) and Yang is probably one of my favorites. She can hold her own here but Joe still gets the win. Yang will tire out before he does and he can just snap that cybernetic arm and put her at a disadvantage.
