Collages - Coming Up

Just to give a sense of what I have planed for future collages, and not wanting to highjack the general thread, here is what's to come. I'll delete from the first post as rounds begin and add/adjust as new ideas arise. I'm enjoying these collages enough that I might not go back to existing posters for a while.

Non-DC/Marvel Live - Characters from Non-Superhero Projects Based on Comics; put on hold.

DC Animated - Superheroes - 3-part collage created; round three started, locking the total at 800
DC Animated - Villains - list of 1294 created for 4-part collage; same caveat as above; working on creating part 4
DC Animated - Supporting  Characters/Other allies - list of 498 created; will likely split in 2; same caveat as above
52 continuities in use

Marvel Animated - Superheroes
Marvel Animated - Villains
Marvel Animated - Everyone Else
Again, my knowledge fails after a certain point, plus they also really start to multiply. Likely cut-off is 1990s Incredible Hulk series. I'll take a look and see if 1980s Spider-Man looks distinct enough from Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends to treat separately; in this instance it's less a continuity issue and more a potential too close a look issue.

Non-DC/Marvel Animated - Superheroes (including characters never seen in comics) - possibly merged with Live
Non-DC Marvel Animated Projects based on Comics: Depending on what I find, this may be all one post

Vampires - Live and  maybe Animated
Zombies - Live; in many cases zombies can be identified by who they were before passing
Other humanoid monsters (lycanthropes, Franeknstein Monster variants, Michael Myers variants, etc)

DC Live: Streaming, Watchmen, Paradox Press, Others Who Missed Their Slot
Marvel Live: Others Who Missed Their Slot

Things will continue beyond this point, but I think that's a good start.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Updated the above. Loki, would you like me to avoid final season Agents of SHIELD characters in the Marvel collages? I'm fine with leaving them out if needed.

Disney+ are apparently going to be adding AoS S7 to their UK lineup starting late next month, albeit weekly so it's take until the new year for all the episodes to air. However, I'm fine with including characters from it in collages - at worst, that'd spoil surprise appearances of characters getting their MCU debut. I can live with that. It's getting stuff like character deaths spoiled that I hate.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Updated my notes on Marvel, including notes on how I've chosen to handle the X-Men movies, which are the same timeline from First Class up until Wolverine arrives from the future (from the X-Men perspective) in Days of Future Past.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Updated the above. Might shuffle the order depending on my mood.

One general thought with the collages: It takes a few hours to create collages especially since I'm now creating lists in advance rather than going from memory so I want the collages to last a bit. Plus I want to make sure everyone has a decent crack at these, since not everyone who might want to participate is going to be on these boards everyday. So what I propose is, no more the 50 guesses per person per 24 hour period. Minor numbering corrections don't count towards the tally but actual incorrect guesses do. so if your first guess is at 1:13 pm/13:13 your time, your 51st guess could not be before 1:13 pm/13:13 your time the following day. Multiple guesses in one post cumulative. Obviously four people working together in the same timeframe could still clear a 187 image collage in a day, but that is unlikely. Does that seem fair to everyone?

You can cut it to fewer than that if you like. I know this is mostly inspired by me, as I do have a tendency to just blitzkrieg through the collages. I'll restrain myself a bit in future, as I really wasn't trying to hog the entire collage.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Okay, let's go with 30 per 24 hour period then. That way most collages should last a week give or take, which gives me plenty of breathing space to create new collages, and will definitely ensure that anyone who wants to play can do so.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Question mainly for Loki and zuckyd1 as the main respondents to the collages, though anyone else who might want to play can chime in: Are you knowledgeable enough with in-house Troma movies for me to do a Troma Universe collage? It's an idea I'm mulling over, as there are a lot of bizarre characters (and not just in the superhero stuff; Stuck on You and Troma's War for example have a lot of distinct characters), but if everyone would be quickly stumped I'll skip that one.

I'm not really a Troma guy, but don't let that stop you, especially if zuckyd1 is.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Not really a Troma guy either, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Given that no one is a Troma person, I might just scatter the characters in other collages instead; Troma's War characters could fit into an Action Heroes collage for example.. I'll see how many Troma characters make it to the end of Indie Superheroes and Indie Superheroes' Villains & Supporting Cast. If a lot of them make it to near the end of each round or even stump people entirely, it might mean that a Troma collage would be too hard.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

Updated the above. For DC Animated, so far the cut-off is 2006. I know some people here are fans of Brave and the Bold so I *could* include that here, but check the current tallies, particularly the villains before you say yes or no to including that, which would mean I'd also be adding other material from the same timeframe (and yes there were some "not really that evil" villains I actually rejected). I would be open to covering the newer material at a later date regardless.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

One question for people who did the collages: I tried to strike a balance between visibility of image and amount of scrolling, since it's nice to see as much of the collage at once if possible. Do people prefer to see more of the image even if it means more scrolling, or are people happy to see more of the costume cropped if it means having to scroll down less? I'm working on part 4 of DC Animated Villains and trying the latter a bit here and there.

Re: Collages - Coming Up

With part 1 almost finished, I've decided to show the unnumbered collages for parts 2 to 4 of the DC Animated Villains series (the numbered versions exist, but I don't want any premature guessing). I'm doing so partly to get everyone a sense of who appears in which collage ahead of time, but also as follow up to my previous question. For part 4 I cropped the images more to get more images on a single row, this less scrolling. Let me know if you have a preference for more of image visible/more scrolling or less of image visible/less scrolling. I'll factor any feedback into the DC Animated - Other collages. Images below are subject to change (due to a character showing up twice, etc).
