    I have abandoned "surely, nobody could be that stupid" reasoning when it comes to the GQP.

    Yeah. This.

    As for Star Wars Ep 1, it was the weakest of the first 6, but I also thought it the most visually gorgeous and compelling of the entire franchise, bar none.

    I'd probably sub Corbomite Maneuver for Spectre of the Gun, but otherwise, I think it's a solid list.

    Interesting. The issue of All-Star Comics that had the JSA breakup to join the services after December 7th had Sandman joining the Marines as an artilleryman. Just goes to show that continuity wasn't...

    Even then, unless he dies in there, I'm not sure that bleeds out the poison. I can see a group of nutbars clinging to hope that Trump will emerge and lead them to greatness ala Nelson Mandela...

    Bruce Wang is the son of Hong Kong aristocrats, orphaned by a common criminal. It's only after beginning Batman's war on crime, years later, that he discovers that the murderer was a Chinese agent,...

    He was a great writer, with a reverence for and encyclopedic knowledge of past stories. On one hand, it made him ideal for turning disparate stories into a grand Wagnerian epic. On the other, it...
  8. You are correct, and Mar-Vell was an established...

    You are correct, and Mar-Vell was an established war hero on his debut. However, he was relatively low in rank, and an alien to boot. While that doesn't explicitly imply youth, he also came along in...

    Hm. Key.

    You want some major enemies of as many individual JL members as possible. Most of them have at least one, some have several. Exactly who really doesn't matter unless you want to be...

    and rightly so

    I know it all sounds nuts, but how likely was a Trump Presidency back in 2015?
  12. Yeah, I'm on record some pages back thinking that...

    Yeah, I'm on record some pages back thinking that the King Makers were done with Trump, but it looks like I was wrong. I can see the Qpublican politicians, they're terrified he'll hang a nickname on...

    Also on the list of Alpha Flight's bad ideas: Puck was already a mature and experienced adventurer before caging a bad guy in his own body shrank him down to an immortal little person. Even if you go...

    I just always felt a sense that All-Star Squadron must have been Thomas' dream project, and it shone in every page.
  15. I could see all the prominent Green Lanterns...

    I could see all the prominent Green Lanterns (except Kyle) being early 30s at least. Alan Scott was lead engineer on a railroad tressel construction. They don't let people become test pilots right...

    I'm not so sure. Power doesn't accrue to population for us. Enthralling Rural America and some of The Rust Belt might guarantee the sane among us have to stand around incredulously being frustrated.
  17. Z can support great stories (well, to be fair,...

    Z can support great stories (well, to be fair, almost any character can, with the right writer), but she's very niche. Immensely powerful, but you can neutralize her with a handful of sneezing...

    I hear you. I'm just saying it's not likely to work. At least not until and unless progressives dominate all three branches.
  19. I agree in general with your direction, but...

    I agree in general with your direction, but federalizing the dollars won't work either. Conservatives will do what they've done in a lot of districts: put their kids in private schools, and pressure...

    I wrote a long reply. When I went to edit it, I decided to simplify it.

    Your argument is based on objectivism, and full of mule droppings.

    DM if you'd like the whole reply.

    An oldie. There would never have been an extra season of (the original) Magnum, PI. Thomas would have walked into his afterlife, with perhaps a visit or two as a spirit, to oversee the supporting...

    In some respects correct, in others, very much not.

    Yes, the increase in higher ed is 100% administrative bloat. The cost of teaching per student has not risen, and the cost of research (easily...

    I get what you're saying j9ac9k, but it's said with the benefit of hindsight. You've pointed out the predictions that proved true, but we've got 80-odd pages of predictions that didn't (I personally,...

    Controlling prices is easy...if you have a centrally controlled economy. For those without a commerce shogun, the more effective levers are either mandating more equitable compensation, or...
