The one western actor I'd unequivicably accept in a live action version of section 9 is Ron Perlman as Batou

Reads headline: That's a terrible idea

Watches video: That's an idea that the phrase "whitewashing feature-length failure" pretty much seems to effortlessly sum up.

So, of those of us lef behind, what are our plans? Given we now have a grade III kit at our disposal, Janus is going to be madly brewing poisons ready for, presumably, Mama Giueseppe's stew day the following week.

'Mix-Up' by itself will fill up most if not all of the slots Battlewise makes available.

     Battlewise: At level 10, you gain the Bag of Tricks feat and may use the mix-up trick twice per round while still observing the minimum number of rounds between use of an action.
     At Level 20 you gain the Bag of Tricks feat a second time and the minimum number of rounds between the use of an action becomes 1.

Sounds like leads are structurally equivalent to hints

Any aggression you feel was there was purely an inferrence on your part and was not intended. I have to admit however that when logic seems flawed or hidebound, that is something that frustrates me.

Whether they are garilous or terse, all detectives are talkers. They have to be. You certainly don't get to be a renowned inspector without the ability to get people to talk to you or likewise get your point across to them. Because sure your Inspector can be a dogged Dredd type who via an unending onslaught of intimidation will track down someone to deliver on-the-spot justice, but the class itself should be just as capable of the ability to persuade a frightened victim to give testimony without moving outside their class skill list. Not to mention that if you have Bluff on the skill list, the class is absolutely a talker class.

 You can easily dump Haggle to get Impress back into the class list and leave it to the player to decide whether they invest the ranks in it instead of having to expend one of their origin skill choices. Especially as Haggle is a totally rubbish skill in Fantasy Craft and should have been much more like Spycraft's Streetwise skill.

Your listing of all the detectives capable of fighting? Basic proficiencies and fortes, the lot of them. Not a feat required. Out of all the basic combat feats, the only ones that really speak to being a detective in the classic mould are the aggro and charging chains, allowing you to provoke a suspect into hasty action or run them to ground as they try to flee.

Background is missing Relationships -- a lot of brief investigative montages often build a matrix of the interpersonal tensions and supports in a victim's life from which a pool of suspects can be drawn. Hence the reason you some times get multiple murders that are intended to obfuscate the relationship between the killer and victim that really mattered to them.

If they were going to do Civil War, they should have done it before they executed SHIELD by publically revealing Hydra had eaten out the heart of it. Because Agents of SHIELD is doing a very good job of showing what happens when that sort of database falls into villainous hands.

Civil War is really dangerous territory to be taking the franchise. It turned Reed Richards into someone who's pretty much operating on the same moral level as Doctor Doom, and left them with no way to redeem Stark as a character except to give him personality backup that conveniently last saved before any of the Civil War/Secret Invasion mess started and even now it seems he's starting to veer back into that territory as Marvel basically get around to their version of Infinite Crisis.
