      I've been designing a new sig, and I was wondering what you guys think of it?


        The new message in it is based on what I think Stan Lee was getting at when he had The Mandarin begin life by squandering every bit of his fiefdom's money training himself into a living weapon. I think this is the type of person he intended The Mandarin to be at his core. It also fits into with his various social darwinist schemes to do things like kill all the weak-gened with extremis to make way for the strong, and with speeches he's made like "To know that you are superior, in mind, in body, in spirit, that is everything! To know that power is your birthright, to know that untold thousands exist on this world for no reason but to serve you, to channel their power through your empire, be it of land or of business, channeling it upward to fuel you, to fuel your glory!"

    I agree with Leonard in that it could give people the wrong idea.   It seems to much like the "yellow peril" stereotype we now want to avoid making with Asian culture. (Or perhaps a really bad subversion of it.)


......huh? Can...can you elaborate on that? Because I'm not seeing it at all....
