Re: Captain Marvel Worries

I mean, Wakanda even has a wall to keep out all of those illegal, I mean, undocumented imigrants.

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Like I said in my BP review: I also liked that, while Wakanda was set up as some kind of African paradise, the film does show that it's really only a paradise for the people at the top, and it's still very flawed. They're cultural isolationists that refuse people of all races entry, deny technology ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Mega-Juicers, Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster!)

The lack of damage bonus to MDC melee weapons just seemed weird. Like, if it's a lightsaber, I get it. It's a blade of energy, it doesn't matter who's swinging it, it's going to do the same damage to everything. But for most other melee weapons, being Vibro Weapons or Magic Weapons or the like, you'...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Walter Peck also gets humiliated and shown up, which is a point I mentioned. He's also an antagonist, as opposed to a protagonist or supporting character. And Alfred, Jarvis, and Xander are a bit different in that while they snark at the heroes, the hero they're snarking at often has an ego or self-...

Re: Captain Marvel Worries

A lot of people seem to hate the Unlikably Smug Bratty Little Sister character for being an unlikably smug brat. But, y’know, that’s kind of the point. So I don’t understand that critique... Just because a character is exactly what the creator set out to make them doesn't mean the audience can't di...

Now that's how you do a solid villain design.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Gigan! Mechagodzilla! Titanosaurus! Jet Jaguar!)

Biollante was kind of a wake up call for me and my brothers when we first watched it. At that point in our lives, all of the Godzilla we'd seen had been stuff from MST3K or a few of the older movies like Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, which were fairly lighthearted movies all things being equal. So when...

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

To be fair, DC generally seemed to have the idea idea that Superman and Batman started their hero careers in their early-to-mid 20's, and that as "experienced heroes", they're in their mid-30's. Heroes of a comparable experience (Barry, Hal, Diana, Ollie) are in a similar age group. Young-but-experi...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Gigan! Manda! Mechagodzilla! Titanosaurus!)

I kind of liked Jet Jaguar as an unambiguously good guy (at least when not under alien control), and while he could use a little re-design, I actually kind of dig the guy. Funny enough, in a recent IDW Godzilla series, Jet was treated as basically the Superman of the setting and primary hero of huma...
