  1. I do think rules are important in any...

    I do think rules are important in any fantasy/science fiction story. But the less "magic" or "technology" is portrayed in those said stories gives writers of those stories some more flexibility in my...
  2. I believe you. I don't think you and Clea would...

    I believe you. I don't think you and Clea would even ENJOY Strange as a character if the stories he involved in didn't have "rules". I personally don't mind magic having a scientific basis and I...
  3. Great! That being said, I don't think Marvel...

    Great! That being said, I don't think Marvel should change the "rules" of magic AGAIN after establishing them only a few years ago. I understand you don't like magic having a price, but as far as I...
  4. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I...

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that I personally don't mind it if Marvel treats magic like a "science humans don't understand yet." Because at least with that there are no grand and sweeping...
  5. I guess that means Marvel magic is a bit of a...

    I guess that means Marvel magic is a bit of a mess right now then? :(
  6. Yeah, maybe I'm looking at the wrong reviews. I...

    Yeah, maybe I'm looking at the wrong reviews. I know Bendis's work at DC has been panned, but Ram V's (interesting name there) has been relatively well-received? From what I've read online, it seems...
  7. Do you think Strange's new book will change the...

    Do you think Strange's new book will change the "rules" of Marvel magic AGAIN? I mean, do you think Marvel will keep the whole "magic has a price" thing? Or do you think they will make Marvel magic a...
  8. I'm not trying to get a rise out of anybody. I...

    I'm not trying to get a rise out of anybody. I said Marvel could do a story where the current Wanda is an "imposter" and the "real" one of pre-1989 has been stuck in some other "dimension" or...
  9. Yeah, I consider it a price.

    Yeah, I consider it a price.
  10. You make a really good point about self-contained...

    You make a really good point about self-contained stories with fixed beginnings and endings. Rules are easier to apply in those circumstances, no question. I think the Harry Potter series is starting...
  11. Why should I stop? Is there a "rule" in these...

    Why should I stop? Is there a "rule" in these forums that doesn't permit discussion of this topic? :D And dude, you only have yourself to blame for my "obsession" (I simply call it curiosity) about...
  12. From what I understand, if Zatanna uses her...

    From what I understand, if Zatanna uses her powers too much, Upside Down Man (great name by the way) is gonna take her over. Kind of like Chthon and Wanda, but as we've discussed earlier, DC is...
  13. I see your point. I can understand where you're...

    I see your point. I can understand where you're coming from. And what you say makes a lot of sense and I agree with your opinions to a large extent. BUT...I think Zatanna is doing better over at DC...

    Glad to see that you are so optimistic about the future. We will have to see how Feige and company deal with the issues that I'm concerned with. I have some confidence they won't screw things up.
  15. If magic is by its very nature inconsistent and...

    If magic is by its very nature inconsistent and unpredictable (as well as being mysterious and dangerous), then shouldn't magic users deploy it on a very limited basis? Since they can't possibly...
  16. Fantasy fans call them limitations, comic book...

    Fantasy fans call them limitations, comic book fans call them costs. I come from a perspective where they are one and the same. All joking aside, they're serious similarities between the two. Maybe...

    Just wondering if anybody else here has some concerns with the MCU diving into magic, alternate realities and time travel to such a significant degree? I have a LOT of confidence in Feige and his...
  18. Well, whenever I'm bored with stuff, I usually...

    Well, whenever I'm bored with stuff, I usually dislike it. So I'm just projecting here. My point is, and I hope I'm not sounding like a dick here, that whenever I watch fantasy movies and shows in...
  19. You make excellent points. Thank for you sharing...

    You make excellent points. Thank for you sharing them so articulately. I really enjoy reading your comments because they are so eloquent and logical. But you're not unique in that regard when it...

    It's funny that you mention "seriousness" in fantasy. One of my all-time favorite movies is Princess Bride. I don't think there were ANY rules for magic in that film. And I didn't mind it all. Inigo...

    The idea is pretty stupid. Not only that, it's pretty stale and unimaginative as well. I hate this kind of shit. The overuse of "alternative realities", "magic" and "time travel" just leads to...

    Reasonable limitations does not equal nerfing in my opinion.
  23. I know you've said that before, but I'm talking...

    I know you've said that before, but I'm talking about "perceptions". LOTS of people think Wanda and Strange can practically do whatever the fuck they want. I've seen this on NUMEROUS forums and video...
  24. I've been reading through these Wanda-related...

    I've been reading through these Wanda-related threads for a while. There has been a great deal of distaste here for how Wanda used her powers fifteen years ago. The complete lack of build-up or...
  25. I don't think Wanda needs to suffer brutal costs...

    I don't think Wanda needs to suffer brutal costs for creating rings and dog leashes. That's not changing the balance and equilibrium of anything. But it makes it harder for writers to work with magic...
