Re: Captain Marvel Worries

Why all the fuss? She didn't even mention Captain Marvel.

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

The issue there is that Pre- Crisis always had a slight “Mrs. Robinson” vibe to the flirtation between Batgirl and Robin. Dick was a high school student until 1969, when O’Neil and Adams shipped him off to Hudson University... Babs has her Ph.D. and job as Head Librarian in her 1967 debut. A few ye...

I just read that and it wasn't remotely preachy. You seem to be projecting a bit there

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

I'm quite happy to see the end of the Burnside costume. It made no sense for her to have a rookie style costume when she's an experienced hero with lots of money. But the new look is very similar to the look she has in some of the flashbacks to her early days, which still makes her look young and in...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Mothra! Minilla! Anguirus! King Kong! Gigan!)

There is some deleted footage of Godzilla fighting Manda briefly in Destroy All Monsters. The reason it's deleted is that Toho thought "Wait a second....why are two monsters the Kilaaks controlling fighting one another?" and scrapped it For too much logic for a giant monster movie. As if they need ...

Violet Lear HP: 1 Condition: Fatigued Violet headed over to break up the lip-lock between Kelly and Rose. Idly, she wondered which one of them was going to regret this more and smiled. Life in the school was going to be hilariously awkward for a few days. "All right girls" she snapped a picture whi...

Re: Cloak & Dagger

I've seen, I think, the first two episodes. It's a bit on the melodramatic side. I get it, their lives are crappy. How many episodes are they going to spend on that? But I like both the actors so I'll at least give it a little more time.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Mothra! Minilla! Anguirus! King Kong!)

Godzilla vs Megalon was one of my favorites when I was young. Megalon and Gigan had cool things on their heads and weapons for arms and there was a robot that could grow really big. Plus they used a lot of funny wrestling moves. A perfect monster movie for me to watch on Saturday morning.

Re: King Kong (Toho)

-The famous King Kong (vs) Godzilla is one of cinema's first big Studio Crossover Movies, as RKO Pictures gave the Kong rights to Toho, who made a "Rubber Suit" movie out of it. Now featuring a much larger Kong (he'd be less than half Godzilla's height otherwise), it paints him as a sympathetic fig...

Should we start a betting pool to see how they explain Wolverine's new flat iron claws? Secondary Mutation? Infinity Stone shenanigans? Weapon X had actually installed it, but forgot to hit the on switch?

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

I don't get the uproar about Wolverine. It's not like he's coming back and all of a sudden he's been an Inhuman all along. Pretty much every character that "dies "and comes back is different for a bit when they return and this is a really minor and obviously temporary change.
