    Crime-Master is awesome. The grand-daddy of Kingpin, Hammerhead, Tombstone and others. Lobo who was modeled on Lucky Luciano was a great villain.



    Leaning into "daughter of cop" is a good way...

    And it's also dumb because they're acting like it's their success Scorsese is jealous of. I mean Disney keeps all the money, the fans get zilch, they are in fact being farmed out and harnessed as...

    In the sense of George Bailey from It's A Wonderful Life being more relatable as a figure than RDJ's Tony Stark.



    Being relatable doesn't correlate to being commercially successful nor is...

  5. Yeah. Look, it's not unusual for something...

    Yeah.

    Look, it's not unusual for something people like and is otherwise good having problematic legacy. Gwen's death is absolutely fridging, end of story. Everyone behind the scenes admitted she...
  6. It's the subtext of the thing, which Neil Gaiman...

    It's the subtext of the thing, which Neil Gaiman himself picked up. Neil Gaiman you know one of the best writers in comics history who has worked with the Big Two and so on.



    That is correct....

    He got a slap on the wrist for a bit in the first movie and it's never referred to again isn't consequences or "losing money". Logically speaking, Stark Industries' move to clean energy especially...

    Did Tony Stark face consequences when he converted his company from manufacturing arms to peacetime use? Did his stock drop, was he forced to downsize his company and fire people? Was Stark...

    There are some movies that will always be hard to sell and hard to fund. Scorsese's previous movie Silence or Last Temptation of Christ for instance. But The Irishman isn't that kind of movie. This...

    James Bond and Indiana Jones didn't make it hard to impossible for him to make movies. Both are action movies about people without powers, your basic macho male fantasies about white imperialism....

    Chip Zdarsky should write it.
  12. It's a different way of saying the same thing. ...

    It's a different way of saying the same thing.



    And again in the history of comics, people who worked in other genres saw themselves shut out by superhero stories. So historically those genres...
  13. We'll find out eventually. My guess is that it...

    We'll find out eventually. My guess is that it will be like Slott's Learning to Crawl, Gwen will look like she did in the Romita era dated '60s fashions but there will be anachronistic touches here...

    Scorsese has spoken about his admiration for those movies, so no?

    Scorsese doesn't dislike special effects stuff or fantasy. He dislikes superheroes. You can like fantasy and dislike superhero...

    Best Games of the Decade

    So what would you guys consider the best games of this decade?

    This was the decade when I became a really active gamer, though I don't want to oversell that since I am largely a filthy casual. I...

    Fantasy is a huge broad term and that includes stuff like The Wizard of Oz, The Thief of Bagdad (1940), Terry Gilliam movies and a host of stuff that Scorsese is a huge fan of.

    Scorsese isn't...

    You know this is the first decade where "10 Best Superhero movies" actually makes sense as a list.

    Best Superhero adaptations of this decade.
    1) LOGAN
    2) Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse
    3)...
  18. Art movies used to mean foreign movies, or...

    Art movies used to mean foreign movies, or experimental movies. Stuff like Andy Warhol's Vinyl, stuff like Fellini or Ingmar Bergman or Lars von Trier. Martin Scorsese movies were never really...

    If I had to name best movies of the decade, it would be stuff like

    Get Out
    Mad Max Fury Road
    Gone Girl
    Sorry to Bother You
    The Nice Guys
    The Wolf of Wall Street
    Lincoln
    The Grand...

    Jameson. He's never had a miniseries dedicated just to him.
  21. Well for example, take a movie like It's A...

    Well for example, take a movie like It's A Wonderful Life. Both It's A Wonderful Life and freaking Iron Man are about how one guy has such a big difference. The difference is that Jimmy Stewart's...
  22. It's my opinion, and I offered a detailed...

    It's my opinion, and I offered a detailed paragraph saying why. If you look at the story from the perspective of comics storytelling, i.e. characterization/progression/economy of action and so on, it...
  23. Yeah she and Harry Osborn went to the same high...

    Yeah she and Harry Osborn went to the same high school and dated each other. In ASM #33, Harry Osborn introduces her to Flash as "The ex-beauty queen of Standard High".

    So it's likely that Norman...
  24. Scorsese has said that The Departed is not a...

    Scorsese has said that The Departed is not a movie of his that he likes and he's amazed/bemused that it won him an Oscar. All he says about it is that the Oscar win made it easier for him to make...
  25. The story is ASM #121 and 122. i.e. two-parts....

    The story is ASM #121 and 122. i.e. two-parts. And mostly, the story is remembered for Part 1 and Part 1 is weak.

    ASM #121 is a weak issue because again, this story is Gwen's last day but she...
