Re: Jab’s Builds (Rapunzel! Flynn! Mother Gothel! Cassandra!)

Regarding Tangled, I've only seen it once or twice with my nieces, and while it was cute, it didn't wow me the way other Disney films have. It's not bad, but it seems kind of . . . well . . . Dreamworks-y. Still, Rapunzel herself is adorable and sweet, and makes an interesting contrast to Tiana. Tia...

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

I've got to say, part of me would be really tempted if I wrote for DC to create a team of obvious analogies to Nadia, Riri, Moongirl, JaneThor, Gwenpool, SpiderGwen, Kate Bishiop, America Chavez and Squirrelgirl as a group of supervillains that basically all take a page from the Anita Sarkeesian pla...

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

The re-launch of Unstoppable Wasp came out as well, and that book remains terrible, mainly because it continues the fallacy that women are somehow being kept out of STEM fields, when in reality no one is being prevented from going into said fields, it's just that on average women gravitate towards o...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

And to go through this step by step: Comic books have always been political , In the sense that superheroes live in a world where politics exist, sure. Writers using superheroes to specifically push a political agenda and calling fans various insults for not following said agenda? That's fairly rece...

Daredevil Season 3 gets political

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/daredevil-season-3-on-netflix-gets-political/1100-6462318/ Comic books have always been political , so it's no surprise when comic book movies and TV shows are too. But showrunners like Erik Oleson, who helms Netflix's Daredevil Season 3, don't always have so clear ...

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

I'm also really disappointed with the nihilistic notion that set off Namor's apparent mad-on for the surface world: the idea that humans on a beach would just stand by and watch Atlantean children die. I know, commentary on how people will just watch as a beached dolphin or similar sea animal die fr...

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

So they got Namor to murder one of the only three people he ever considered a friend in the surface world (the others being Steve Rogers and Jim Hammond) just to showcase how far he would go... I can't even comment. What's going to be next for thwe Sub-Mariner? Drugging and raping Sue Richards? I h...

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

Let's see, it's a Tuesday . . . Yep, Namor's a villain again. Straight up villian.... Straight up "beat a fellow superhero who was just trying to talk within an inch of his life and then have a bunch of sharks completely devour him while he barely hangs on to consciousness" villain. Yeah it was Sti...

Re: The Marvel Cinematic Universe vs the Live Action Sinister Six

I'm not sure Electro can drain the Vision, given Vision's powered by a combination of Vibranium and the Mind Gem. Electro might be able to mess with him to some degree, however. Wanda can also shield herself from Electro's attacks as long as she's not taken by surprise. Sandman's powerful, but he's ...

The Marvel Cinematic Universe vs the Live Action Sinister Six

And since I'm in a Spider-Man mood, I thought I'd pit villains who have made up the Sinister Six in live action films against various MCU heroes, and see how they stack up. For these fights, we'll be using the Six as portrayed by: Dr. Octopus (Spider-Man 2) Sandman (Spider-Man 3) The Lizard (The Ama...

Spider-Man vs Spider-Man vs Spider-Man (films)

So I just watched a Lets Play of the PS4 Spider-Man game, and it got me thinking about the live action Spider-Man portrayals (by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland) and how they compare to each other. So I figured, Hell, lets just make a thread about it. I've thus divided them up into se...

Re: Tangled

How were those misleading? Like most, I never saw those movies. Both movies were advertised basically as these kind of "...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Enchanted! Giselle! Narissa! Bolt! Princess and the Frog!)

It's really depressing that most, if not all, of the 2-D animated films we get these days are direct to video.
