I had a strangely difficult time with this one--strange because you'd think there's so many options! I was going to try to keep my posts from being too Bat-heavy, but in the end I wound up sticking in one more:

For this question, my mind went straight to a character that I knew from Scans_Daily: Hope Summers. The insufferability. The arrogance. The sassy lectures delivered to stunned adults! Everyone probably has moments like this as a teenager, but without the Special Destiny to make them that much more insufferable!

So very much not my favorite )

You know. It is pretty damn sweet to be a Kryptonian. You are bullet-proof. You can fly anywhere in the world. You can lift anything that weighs in tonnes. You can see through walls. You can freeze things with your breath. You can even set things on fire with your eyes.

Which Kryptonian do I wish to steal from specifically? )

I honestly had trouble with this one. Because in truth? There is more than one character I'd like to see come back from the dead.

The characters I speak of all populated a world that was originally five decades old. They lived on a world where the first superheroes appeared and united during World War II and formed the first superhero team in the history of superhero teams. These were the characters that aged in real time, married, and had families of their own. Their own children eventually took over their jobs as superheroes once they were old and retired or had passed on after a long, fruitful life. Their own legacy even led the arrival of a new generation of superheroes that were more diverse than their predecessors.

I am of course, talking about the pre-Crisis Earth-2 in all its Golden Age glory! )

Not gonna lie, I really hate timezones since they always eff up my posting schedule. But then, I don't think there is ever a right or wrong time to devote an entire post to the Worlds' Finest Slash Buddies.

In fact, these too ladies are so slashy, I literally had trouble setting limitations for myself. That's how much there is, I often never know where to begin:

Just in time for Tom Blake's New 52 debut tomorrow, here we celebrate the existence of a man who's had almost as many face changes as Doctor Who himself since his initial inception in 1963! (Also the year Doctor Who debuted, fyi).

The Many Faces of Thomas Blake, aka The Catman! )

Also, sorry this is late. Photobucket wasn't cooperating with me ever since it received 938445989 upgrades. :(

As a reminder, please don't forget to tag your posts as Series: 31 Days Of Scans!

Here we are! Day 01 of our 31 Days of Scans to celebrate the winter season (and for that matter the end of the year)!

What better way to start this off than with one of the most idiosyncratic ladies of the DC Universe?

Oh yes! We are talking about *this* lady! )

December is, for many cultures, a month with significant celebrations in it, both religious and secular, and so, with that in mind [personal profile] aeka, [personal profile] sistermagpie and myself [personal profile] icon_uk , your vaguely benevolent Mods on Scans_Daily, would like to invite you all to help us revive a celebration of our very own!

31 Days of Scans!


31 Days of Scans allows us each a daily opportunity to celebrate one particular facet of comics, be it characters, teams, costumes, relationships, and all sort of other things.

There will be a master post each day where you can comment, and if you have scans to support your choices, then please do post them.

The themes will be;

Day 1: Favorite Female Character
Day 2: Favorite Male Character
Day 3: Favorite Friendship
Day 4: Character you would bring back from the dead
Day 5: Favorite rogues gallery
Day 6: Power or Ability You’d Like to Steal
Day 7: Favorite Team/Corps/Family
Day 8: Least favorite female character
Day 9: Least favorite male character
Day 10: Most cracktastic moment
Day 11: Favorite Elseworlds/Multiverse?
Day 12: Comic Location You’d Most Like to Visit? (Gotham, Star City, Themysicra, Utopia, Prof. Charles Mansion)
Day 13: Favorite artist(s)
Day 14: Favorite writer(s)
Day 15: Character that should have their own movie
Day 16: Favorite LGBTQ character
Day 17: Favorite legacy hero (Hero that took on a previous hero’s ID)
Day 18: Best Butt?
Day 19: Character you used to hate/dislike, but now you don’t?
Day 20: Storyline/Book you could read over and over again?
Day 21: Favorite Comic Event?
Day 22: Favorite Villain
Day 23: Favorite Costume
Day 24: Least Favorite Costume
Day 25: Favorite “other media” (movie, cartoon, etc) (A special exception to our usual position on such things)
Day 26: Favorite PoC character
Day 27: Favorite Origin?
Day 28: Favorite Canonical Romance
Day 29: Favorite Not-so canonical Romance
Day 30: Build your dream team of five characters
Day 31: Favorite era of comics - Golden Age? Silver Age? Bronze Age? Another?

We checked and it's been four years since we last did one of these, and a LOT has happened in that time, so don't think we run the risk of repeating ourselves too much.

Oh, and please don’t let any of this stop you posting as per your usual habits of course, but we hope you will enjoy taking part in the theme, the more the merrier and all that.

We would as that when you post, please do include the tag series: 31 days of scans, so it's easy to keep track of going forward.

We're looking forward to seeing your opinions and choices.

As some of you may have noticed, scans_daily celebrated it's 10th anniversary last month. Yup, our first iteration came into being in December 2003 and have been going strong ever since.

Let the festivities begin! )

Forgot to do one of these last month since February was a hella busy month for yours truly, but here's the requests post for this month!

Since this month's theme is 'Favourite Female Character,' now's the time to start requesting stories with your favourite comic book ladies from your fellow S_Ders!

Greetings True Believers!

As you are all well aware, our veteran moderator, [personal profile] greenmask, has decided to retire her position on the mod team, as has [personal profile] shobogan who's also been a member of the mod team since 2011. We would like to thank [personal profile] greenmask in particular for all of her hard and awesome work that she's contributed to the comms in the 2.5 years that she's been active. On a more personal note, she--along with [personal profile] benicio127 --has been a wonderful mod whom I've looked up to since first joining the mod team, and I've certainly learnt a lot from her in the one year that I got to work alongside her. I wish her well in pursuing new avenues in her life, though I hope she sticks around as a regular member of the comm! ;)

Given that we are now officially down to a mod team of four, we've decided to try something new for recruiting new mods onto our team: give members a chance to apply to be a part of the mod team!

Wait! What? We can actually apply now for a chance to be a part of the mod team? Yes, you heard right! this is your chance to actually apply for modship. Since we have two openings at the moment, you have twice the chance to make it. :)

Here's how this works:

In the comments section down below, we would like you to write a paragraph or two detailing why you would like to be a part of the mod team and what you will personally bring to the comms of both [community profile] scans_daily and [livejournal.com profile] noscans_daily if recruited as a moderator. Please just copy-paste this application fand fill it out, although feel free to add any extra details beyond that which you think may be pertinent:



ALL COMMENTS WILL BE SCREENED FOR PRIVACY!

Once we gain enough entries, we will then go through each application one by one and pick our two new mods from there.

There will be a more detailed orientation for our new mods later on when we actually recruit them, but ideal traits we look for in a potential mod:


  • A thorough and complete understanding of the comm rules and ethos, plus a familiarity with (or willingness to learn) non-aggressive community management.

  • Someone who is willing to be active on both Scans and NoScans Daily.

  • Someone who can bring new and fresh ideas to the mod team for enhancing community experience. (Again, if you have some ideas, please detail these in your comments)!

  • Someone who will actively read through threads and actively moderate them for problematic behaviour, rhetoric, language, etc and be willing to issue mod notes.

  • Someone who will actively participate in mod discussions of any threads that get reported to the mod team and help out with mod decisions for major violations of the rules.

  • Someone who can commit to other active mod duties such as maintaining the Scans Daily Twitter account, managing tags, approving new members, posting theme weeks, etc.

  • Someone who is a team player and is willing to be a part of a Mod Team that works by consensus.







Please note that this is strictly an applications only post. That is to say, this post isn't open to any discussion about the current mod team or our current moderation system. For any concerns you'd wish to address, please take it to the mod email instead. Thanks!

That being said: bring on the applications!

Buon coraggio ragazzi!

Big thanks to everyone who put forth suggestions and voted in the poll. You guys came up with a lot of great ideas. And the winner is...

Favourite heroines & female characters!

Have fun with it!

Don't forget to tag you posts with the "theme: favourite female characters" tag.

We'll probably use the other most popular themes of the poll result for the next month before we ask for suggestions again :)

Go wild!

Greeting, True Believers !

The themes for the month of December seems to have been well received, so I think it would be neat to have more themes more regularly on the comm, and doing them for a full month allow people to post without having to worry about the deadlines. ;) (I know I've had troubles with that one themes previously *cough*).

Have a neat idea for a theme? Post about them in the comments! We'll try to start March with one of the popular one! :3

Friends. It's been a ball, but I must walk the plank. I'm away! As your moderator, I retire.

Two and a half years of modship inside of nine (:0) years on-and-off membership: scans daily has been a dear place to me. Thanks for the memories! And - thank you for the lessons. I'm grateful for every time you held me accountable, asked that I explain myself, showed me I was wrong or ignorant, or helped me to find a greater confidence by being impossible adversaries. You've been a terrible hassle and it's been brilliant; you've showed me how to do less harm and that's a treasure.

But so importantly, thank you for the COMICS. Death Note, Scott Pilgrim, X-Statix, Unwritten, Daken, Bande(s?) dessinée in general, SO MANY MORE. Romance comics, horror comics, Kate Beaton comics! What a beautiful education.

I may be some time, but I'll likely be back. I usually am.

So long~~!
