Review of chapter "Capes and Other Accessories" from KingOfCretins
Review:
Great Stuff

Superman might be overpowered for the Buffy-Verse alone however with Marvel in the mix you have the likes of Thor, Hulk, Sentry and a number of others who overall have comparable strength and durability allowing them to go toe to toe with Superman for a while at least even if he is able to overpower them in the end which would be no easy feat. In fact in the case of Thor if his Hammer is sufficiently magical Thor would have the advantage.

Out of curiosity will the three Kryptonian's somehow get a Fortress of Solitude (presumably grown from a Fortress Crystal) or will they be left out in the cold in that regard.

Please write more soon.

My computer is currently in mothballs while I move and get myself put back together, so it may be a bit before my next chapter, sorry. :(

I don't have plans for a Fortress at this point, but all thing are possible.

And as I mentioned in a previous review, the best way to compensate for powerful characters is to make the story about the characters instead of the powers. :)

Review:
Warren is over used as a bad guy... but then again I do believe this is after he was working for Moloch the corrupter...
Comments from author:
for a long time I was seriously considering using another Buffy character for Lex, but Warren at this point in the timeline has one thing that I wanted to use in the character. If not for that one thing I would completely agree with you.

Review of chapter "The River of Life" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
“Those are not comic-books,” Xander said with aggravation clear in his voice despite the fact that it was obvious that he was trying to control his reaction. “Those are soulless bits of propaganda designed to pad the pockets of billionaires at the expense of real artists.”

LOL!

This sticks out in my mind as a uniquely Xander point of view, in a world where comics are real he sticks up for the dreamers.
Comments from author:
Also, I thought, a subtle way to let the readers know that one set of comix are fiction and another is real in this 'verse. :)

Review of chapter "Capes and Other Accessories" from RogueAngel
Review:
hi I'm back. Thankfully I was never a fan of the Kara In-Ze idea. The Justice League cartoon created her when DC won't let them use Kara Zor-El. But hey the 2004 onward Supergirl, which the same story that you had Xander give, wore an outfit similar to In-Ze's it was just all blue. And the new 52 supergirl wears outfit that pretty cool.
Plus. yeah I got the gender change for Superboy/Conner/Kon-El, I'm just wait to see what the spell makes of it is all lol.

Well, the FULL effects will not be reveled until the epilogue.

My plan is for this to be part of a series of shortish stories with prologues that effect the characters that they have no way of knowing about and epilogues about the effects of their actions that they have no way of knowing about.

Review:
omg is Warren going as Lex Luthor? The bald cap and suit jacket ummm.
One thing tho, but really comes from my confusion of which supergirl is which. But I thought the Supergirl in the white tshirt was Kara In-Ze who came from Krypton's sister planet Argo. Were as Kara Zor-El, Clarks cousin. Was the first Supergirl created, and also the latest. She wore something different. GAH there's to many to heap my head straight, they kill her and then bring a new one back. Oh geez when this spell happens, this universe isn't gonna know what hit em lol. loving it, hope you update soon.
Comments from author:
Yes, you caught me. I did knowingly switch the costumes of two of the Supergirls because, to be perfectly frank, I like Zor-El's story, but I think her S-girl outfit is dog ugly and there was no way Buffy would wear a spandex, blue, mini-cocktail-dress. I'm currently claiming that Anansi messed with Xander's memories so that Buffy would be more likely to go with the costume that was available.

BTW, everyone gets that Willow's going as a female, Conner Kent, Superboy, right?

Review:
Well aside from the fact that I don't know who the others in this chapter dressed as (which I hope you can clarify for me) I thought that it was a good set up especially since you have established Warren as the one who got tapped by Loki. Will more characters be shown such as Cordy and her Cordettes as they travel Sunnydale before the big event hits? Also was it really necessary to have Buffy butcher the names? Cause that really makes her look very stupid in my view when she isn't mocking the demons and vampires.
Comments from author:
Okay let's see.

I admit that big part of adding 'Randy' for me was to explore what happened to a character that had speaking parts in two eps in season#1 and then disappeared. Plus, his costume is fairly obscure and is a bit of an Easter egg for the more extreme comic types: Basically he's fun, but not vital...Don't tell anyone.

Warren always struck me as the kind of person who likes bad guys because they're bad guys. Like the wrestling fans who cheer for the heels, but turn on them if they have "face-turn". So he's dressed as a bald man in an expensive suit...

As for Buffy: No i don't think Buffy is stupid, or even doesn't know the characters in questions names. In fact if she were ever to meet them, or was having a serious discussion about them I doubt that she would have any problems with their names. In this case she WAS making fun of their fashion sense and also making a point about the silliness of hero garb in general and convincing Willow to go along with the silliness.

Plus, I found her names for them genuinely amusing...Wolf-Marine...chuckle

Review of chapter "Capes and Other Accessories" from AlecMcDowell
Review:
Hmm I don't know anything about Tomb of Horrors that I didn't read in the short wiki article but if Warren is going as the main bad guy of that series, he's pretty uniquely set up as a magic user to counter the new Kryptonians in this reality. That's probably a good thing for the side of evil because as far as I remember there aren't many magic users in general with high power levels, let alone evil ones in Marvel.

You brought in several gods in the first chapter and I have to wonder if the introduction to kryptonians here will bring in Rao. His presence might further mess up anything the trickster gods were hoping for accomplishing. Looking forward to the next chapter
Comments from author:
Marvel may not have a lot of magic, but it does have a truly disgusting number of psychics.

Rao? Haven't decided yet.

And I can think of at least one person who would know how to synthesize Krypronite

Review:
well hope your not adding anymore characters i think you have enough still how much longer until we the house of El takeover for the night all i can say is more this story probably would be better if you jumped right to the Ethan doing the spell after the scoobies and friends/enemies got their costumes
Comments from author:
Possibly, but I think this chapter established a few important world-building points. I guess we'll see how it turns out together.

Review:
The Marvel Universe welcomes the house of El lol. you know when you had Jonathan going through the racks, I had this thought of him picking a Booster Gold costume. I was torn between, dying of laughing and screaming in horror. I don't know much about Charlton Comics, I know they made Captain Atom and the characters of Watchmen but my brain wont sort them out. Guess I'll just have to wait and see. looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Thank you, I'm looking forward to more as well: the next Chap. is with the Betas.
