    Default Maximum Force Appreciation

    I'd cite the normal guidelines, but considering what we have to work with, say whatever you want.

    Maxwell Lord is no villain, and Ted Kord is alive...chilling with Booster.

    I'll just say I really don't care in any way, shape, or form fro evil Maxwell Lord. Pretty much every version I've seen of evil Max is a bland and generic cesspool of supervillain archetypes, with cut and paste motivations and attack styles. Whatever idiot thought he should be the central villain of George Miller's Justice League script shouldn't ever touch DCEU movies.

    At least the original Maxwell Lord had a unique personality and goal.

    Well, Ted is alive right now...now if only the other two parts were true. (I'm completely with you on Max's face-heel turn being ludicrously stupid and a huge mistake.)

    One of those times when a close friend or relative embarrasses you because they naively say something that you immediately want to pull them out of public and explain to them...
    Wanda: "Max... I don't think MF is a good idea for a logo... Just sayin'"
    Max: "What's wrong with it? See, it looks really cool!"

    Max walks into the meeting room...
    Beetle and Booster immediately fall over laughing.
    Fire's eyes bulge open.
    Ice: "Beetle! Booster! It's impolite to laugh! Pink's a good color!"

    Fire pulls Ice aside and whispers in her ear.
    Ice blushes: "Ooooohhh!"

    BTW...
    Thank you for a Maxwell Lord appreciation post that focuses on the original concept of the character.

    And one of the best insights to Max's personality.

    Another bit of possible dialogue:

    Max defeats random super-villain and hands him over to the cops.
    Cop notices the nose drain.
    Cop: "Excuuuuse me... Sir, are you using?"
    Max: "Using?"
    Cop: "What's in the contraption? Are you on something..?"
    Max: "Nonono... It's not like that. It's an outie not an innie. You see... I'm a pusher, and..."
    Cop: "That's enough. Jim! I think we need to run this guy in, too!"

    One of the best things about that nose contraption was they didn't even bother explaining it. One of my favorite fun, one-off comics of all time.

    I think we're all forgetting the single best time Max Lord had powers.

    It was from the Justice League of America Annual #7 the Bloodlines story. It featured Terrorsmith (who recently showed up in Orlando's Justice League of America).

    Terrorsmith could given powers to anyone who didn't have active ones so Oberon and Max received powers for the story for all of like 3 panels to help repel the Bloodlines Parasites.

    Ah, Bloodlines. If it weren't for Hitman, no one would even remember you exist.

    Was this after DeMatteis and Gliffen were done? I lasted only a handful of issues after they left.
