    Mr. Terrific could have worked as well (although I think keeping that name when there isn't the precedent of Terry Sloane around doesn't make sense). In any case, I think making the one black,...
  2. The writing was solid. And while I liked the...

    The writing was solid. And while I liked the designs, that actual animation was very uneven from episode to episode, esp. after season 1. In any case, Spectacular Spider-Man is, to me, a great...
  3. No, it doesn't. Casting Zendaya as MJ in no way...

    No, it doesn't. Casting Zendaya as MJ in no way disallows anyone from seeing the movie.



    Even if that's true (and it's high;y questionable that it is) most of those people (i.e., the ones who...
  4. No they aren't, because no one is buying a ticket...

    No they aren't, because no one is buying a ticket to a Spider-man movie specifically to see Mary Jane. The name Mary Jane Watson is unlikely to appear on the posters or get mentioned in the trailers....

    Clay Quartermain sounds like a prep school/frat boy/trust fund name. Jim Hammond sounds like a guy who might tend bar and work the door in a neighborhood dive, or drive a forklift.
  6. I have no inherent issue with casting a biracial,...

    I have no inherent issue with casting a biracial, non-redheaded actress to play MJ, if that's what you mean. But, overall, I'm not particularly "happy" about anything I've heard regarding where this...

    I expected it too. They made their intentions quite clear. Didn't say I was surprised by it, I'm just not particularly interested in it.
  8. Betty as a high school classmate of Peter's,...

    Betty as a high school classmate of Peter's, played by an actress 4 years younger than the one playing Peter? Not liking that at all. And the fact that they're casting actual teenagers--as opposed...

    I have no issue with them retconning a newer character into the League's founding. They've done it before. Bit I do think that if they really felt the need to diversify the League's foundation by...
  10. Not really. It may be inaccurate but it's not,...

    Not really. It may be inaccurate but it's not, strictly speaking, a stereotype. Not that that has anything to do with my point either way.



    Which is to say, an insignificant alteration with...
  11. Except they aren't "attachés of SHIELD" and don't...

    Except they aren't "attachés of SHIELD" and don't actually "follow SHIELD directives" in any of the movies. When the quinjet takes off for NY in Avengers, the person monitoring the helicarrier flight...
  12. I don't disagree with any of that. My point is...

    I don't disagree with any of that. My point is that all of those elements existed in the early-70s, well before SNF was released. They were around but, before the movie, the only people with any...
  13. The idea that being a redhead is "very reflective...

    The idea that being a redhead is "very reflective of personality" is itself reflective of outdated stereotypes about redheads, and the even more outdated notion that hair color of any kind is...
  14. I don't see any difference at all, at least not...

    I don't see any difference at all, at least not one that really matters. MJ's character is and will be defined by who she is and what she says and does, not what color her hair is. Giving her...

    My suspicion is that the "observer" is, in fact, Cyborg himself--specifically his onboard computer operationg system/AI--and that the whole thing is a thinly-veiled, heavy-handed exercise in identity...

    We survived Matt Murdock not having red hair, we can survive MJ not having red hair.

    In the movies:

    -- The Avengers don't actually work for SHIELD. In fact, at the time of AoU and Civil War, SHIELD no longer officially existed. The Avengers entire operation was being privately...

    It was hardly a "crap show" but it wasn't nearly the masterpiece of animation that some seem to want to make it put to be. Personally, I think its "ambition" was ultimately a major factor in its...

    Which is just another way of saying that disco wasn't widely popular until after Saturday Night Fever, which is basically the same thing I already said.

    The music and fashion existed before the...

    To be precise it's "Three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and statistics." It is most commonly attributed to Mark Twain, though Twain himself claimed to have cribbed it from Benjamin Disraeli.
  21. Given that we know absolutely nothing about the...

    Given that we know absolutely nothing about the character as she appears in the movie other than her name (assuming that she is, in fact, MJ) then there's zero evidence to support that. If her...
  22. It's not? Is there actually some standard metric...

    It's not? Is there actually some standard metric for that sort of thing? Because, based on nothing other than general impression, "Jim Hammond" sounds like a "manlier" name than "Clay Quartermain"...
  23. Recognizable elements of disco music and fashion...

    Recognizable elements of disco music and fashion were, indeed, around in 1972, but they hadn't yet achieved widespread, mainstream exposure.
  24. Depends on how much of Supergirl's CBS audience...

    Depends on how much of Supergirl's CBS audience follows her to CW. The show pulled in larger viewer numbers on CBS than any of the CW-verse shows did, but I expect those base numbers to fall off when...

    I kind of agree. I like Jaime and Ted, but if they were going to bring Ted back they should have gone the full route. As it, it kind of makes both characters seem compromised. It has the makings of a...
