Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Buffy, Faith)

I was always annoyed with Xander's treatment post Season 5. The whole point of Season 6 was that the Scoobies were great at the supernatural side of things, but normal, mundane life kicked their asses. That should have been Xander's time to shine, as he was always the opposite: he was someone who st...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Buffy, Faith)

Correction BG: Xander "Zeppo" Harris can use multiple firearms & Rifles due to his Soldier Possession in the Halloween episode in Season One(?). So while he never used 'em much with the group( mostly due to Buffy's hatred of Guns ), he HAS used them on his own. Those abilities faded o...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Did I miss something? Like, was she kidnapped by the Khunds or Ra's al Ghul or some other baddie when she was an infant and purposefully raised by supervillains to be a selfish prick? Worse. Her mom is a popular, classically attractive heroine that everyone loves. The only way to respond to such an...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Let’s also not forget that the “S” in Captain Marvel’s power set stands for the Wisdom of Solomon. He’s not just a magical Kryptonian, he’s been empowered by six mythic figures each known for a single supreme ability and given an ability to match their own. He isn’t fast “like” Mercury, he has the ...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

You raise some valid point's regarding Billy's "Old Soul in a Young Body" bit. And your right, he IS overprepared to hang with Adult's, but all that doesn't mean he's mentally able to handle some of the things an Adult may have to. Why not? In every continuity before Geoff Johns rebooted ...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

( that's always been my Major Beef with Batson's transformed look: He's too "Adult" to hang w/teen's his own age, but not Mentally prepared to hang w/Adult's ). I disagree. I think an issue some people have with Billy is that they think "child/teenager" and immediately think &qu...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Okay, this debate has all the ear marks of getting heated, and it's starting to dominate the thread. As thread starter, I'm going to ask that it either be sidelined or have the debate continue over in the Debate forum if you wish.

Re: BEST TV HERO CAR: BLACK BEAUTY-VS-'67 BATMOBILE-VS- KITT-VS- VIPER

My vote would be for the Black Beauty as well. Nice looking car with a ridiculous amount of gadgets. Heck, it had a drone with a video camera in the 60's. 60's Batmobile . . . the lack of a roof means you can't even take the thing out when it rains. I forget if it had any gadgets comparable to the B...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (The Stig)

I watched the old 60's Batman: The Movie last night, and you know what? I will gladly take the kind of campy fun film that movie represents over the Snyder-verse any day of the week, twice on Tuesdays. The film is just FUN. The actors are clearly having a good time, and it completely embraces the ch...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

I mean, I can understand that. A philosophy where personal accountability and taking responsibility for yourself is like Kryptonite to Coates.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

So apparently Ta-Nehisi Coates' take on the Red Skull is to have him basically use Dr. Jordan Peterson's philosophy to spead evil.

Say what you will about Dr. Peterson, love him or hate him, but putting his words into the mouth of a literal Nazi is just . . . wrong.
