Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

POTENTIAL X-MEN COMICS SPOILER: Gambit proposes to Rogue at Pete and Kitty's wedding. They're getting an ongoing series called 'Mr. and Mrs. X' Well, I'm glad they finally decided to marry Peter and Kitty after all of this time. It got really stupid after a while with Kitty dating random characters...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

Did anyone — anyone at all — really believe that T’Challa and Ororo became a couple for any reason other than being Marvel Comics’ two most prominent Black characters? Might as well have had Silver Samurai marry Jubilee. They met once! They’re both Asian! It’s true love! The shocking thing was some...

Re: Modern Comics & Relationships Between Heroes

I agree about the weirdness of the sudden relationship, the most notable in recent years aside from those mentioned was the Carol Danvers/James Rhodes coupling, I remember thinking 'Wait, what? when did that happen?' I thought I'd missed a story-line somewhere. I've also noticed how Marvel seems to ...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

The thing is, the circuitry in their homes analyses their surroundings, calculates a 12 dimensional data map of everything within a thousand mile radius and determines what outer shell would blend in best with the environment. All their chameleon circuits are set to "native African hut". ... I hate...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Those who hate Shuri, hate life. Shuri was a bit smug and annoying, but was clearly meant to be so in-universe- every time she said something, other characters would give that "REALLY?" look. Another part of her character was to show the less-serious, less-stoic part of Wakanda- watch how she repea...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Ah thanks, I'll be getting it on DVD at some point like all the other movies, I just haven't got around to it yet. The one clip I have seen was Shuri saying to Everett Ross 'Don't scare me like that colonizer', I remember thinking 'Wow, that's a bit much, I hope he calls her out over it' He does no...

William Atherton playing both Walter Peck in Ghostbusters and Richard Thornburg in Die Hard 1 and 2 mean't I viewed him as the embodiment of douchbaggery when I was a kid.

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

I've not yet see Black Panther yet so I don't know how it holds up as a movie beyond the politics that surrounded it. It holds up just fine. It doesn’t shy away from politics (which wouldn’t be true to the character) but it also doesn’t run the audiences nose in them (which wouldn’t be true to the ...

You know,i never thought i'd be GLAD to have Corporate oversight in the superhero movie genre.Part of me just hopes we don't have the "Parker Curse" with this one,as we're due for at least one bad movie soon....

Also. Men. Tend. To. Speak. In. Staccato. Rhythm. I know Japanese doesn’t have cases the way the Latin alphabet does, but I swear you can hear them speaking with CAPSLOCK turned on. Male Japanese is almost guttural, lots of from the diaphragm speaking; Female Japanese is very lilting and kind of na...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Mechagodzilla! Jet Jaguar! KING GHIDORAH!!!)

English just doesn’t have the quite the same phoneme for the ジ character, which is why “shi” “ji” and “zi” are all both kinda right and kinda not right. Reminds me of how I almost missed my stop on the train because I didn't recognize the next station's name: "Tokyo". I was like "... wait. I though...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

There's a comics based site called unstablemolecules.com I occasionally visit because a guy on there known as 'Monolith' has written quite in depth power descriptions for a huge number of Marvel characters. Sadly, everyone else on the site are unbelievably SJW about every single little thing, I was ...

Re: Your Favorite Crossovers - Film and Animation edition

IIRC in the Spider-Man/X-Men crossover, despite having the same voice actors for some weird reason they used different sound effects for the X-Men's powers. I also remember the Ghost Rider, Thor and Thing appearances in the Hulk cartoon. Other crossovers I remember Ace Ventura and The Mask (animated...

Just the usual mix of alcoholism, illegal drugs, womanizing, and brawling as far as I know. Andre wasn’t a saint, to be sure, but I don’t think he got into anything as crazy as Jake “The Snake” Roberts, James Hellwig / The Ultimate Warrior, or He Who Shall Not Be Named.
Ah okay, thanks.
