Re: Jab's Builds! (Power Man! Hardcore! Jessica Jones! Chemistro!)

It’s best to pretend that any sort of super-science technology only exists when it’s on panel (or on screen for tv and films). Forget questions like “why doesn’t Tony build an Iron Man suit for every Avenger?” and ask “why doesn’t Tony build an Iron Man suit for ever single serviceman in the milita...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Power Man! Hardcore! Jessica Jones! Chemistro!)

Hey, look! MinaCream did a non-shittily-drawn version of the new She-Ra, which looks a hundred times better :). https://orig00.deviantart.net/217c/f/2018/200/a/4/sketch_388___she_ra_by_minacream-dcho3rx.jpg That is a much better picture, though I wonder why they even bother with the skirt when ever...

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

Neither Bob nor Helen really lost any of their skill. Bob was out of shape because he worked at an office job, was miserable, and had no time or drive to really exercise. But the first time out in costume after all those years, while overweight, he still defeats an Omni-Droid that had murdered dozen...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Power Man! Hardcore! Jessica Jones! Chemistro!)

Chemistro is a perfect example of writers not really thinking through the implications of some technology. Like I've said before, I love superhero comics, I love the fun, kitchen sink nature of them, I love how they can basically be any genre at any time. But I'm also someone who loves world buildin...

Re: Titans - Live action series.

Also, based on the "F*** Batman!" line, it sounds like we're getting Dick Grayson as portrayed by Jason Todd. So, also no thanks.

Re: Steeplejack (Plumm)

-Again, reading these bios the first time made it seem like Chris Claremont had read the initial story, saw a grave injustice in the REAL villain getting away with it, and "fixed" it. However, as I read the first issue, it's never clear that the original Steeplejack was RIGHT- just that he SUSPECTE...

Re: The Incredibles 2 (spoiler free, mostly)

So I finally got to see Incredibles 2 on Monday after many delays. It was amazing. I loved pretty much every second of it, there were no parts where I said "this is dumb" or "this should be removed", it all worked out great. I honestly don't consider this film a step down from the first movie. If In...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Almost every Bond film plot (especially from the Connery/Lazenby/Moore eras) will work fairly well as a street-level superhero story, if you shave off the serial numbers and maybe give the faceless goons slightly better weaponry. Most Bond master-villains are pushovers in a fight, even against Bond...

Re: Batgirl III's Character Thread (Pussy Galore)

Another reason for toning down Pussy Galore's lesbianism in the movie might have been to avoid some unfortunate implications due to her being a Bond girl. Namely that she and James Bond have sex more than once in the film. It could have potentially been viewed as promoting the disturbing idea that "...

She was also Faith on Buffy,The Vampire Slayer and reprised it briefly for Angel . That was Eliza Dushku, not Krysten Ritter.

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

Also, I think it's safe to say that DC has gone overboard with all of the "forces". I already thought the whole Emotional Spectrum thing was a bit much and over-complicated. The Green Lanterns and Sinestro Corps rings should both just run on willpower, the difference being what they recruited you fo...
