    Well, if you want such a narrative, Bond uses the jet pack from Thunderball to get out of range and shoot him. The problem is that the Bionic Woman had an episode where she closed a considerable...

    That's true. Austin has thrown a pillow across a room with such force it knocked someone out. He has thrown equivalent objects across a street and done the same. As you mentioned, snagged a gun...

    True story. I was reading a science fiction book at work many years ago. This guy who loved goading people walked up and said, "Were you beaten as a child or something?" On the spur of the moment,...

    That's a criticism valid for all comic book scientists and gadgeteers. Reed Richards invented the flying car in 1961. Where's mine? :)

    I think that, in order to keep the world essentially the...

    This comes up every once in a while. It would be true of most action heroes. It's really people dreaming of being heroes. A huge number of super heroes today are portrayed as being officially...

    It's more that the comics have established that lightning strikes force Dracula from mist or whatever into his human form and prevent him from shapeshifting for a while. Once that happens, he's...

    True. I think every version of Star Trek is a projection of the era in which it was made.

    The Silver Surfer one was at least explained right in the story. The Surfer was possessed by a human who had only human speed and reflexes. Dracula still could not hurt him, just avoid getting hit....

    Good point. Smallville Supergirl was on the level of Smallville Clark and also had flight. I don't know if she wins strictly on her own feats because I don't remember them that well but any...

    Absolutely. I think when some (not all) conservatives talk about PC culture in a negative way, they are talking about wanting to be allowed to say and possibly do things that should stay in the...

    I think "Cognitive Dissonance" is becoming a term I think about daily. In the aftermath of the Trump townhall where he was asked tough questions and confronted with his lies, his supporters are...

    Then again, that's too pessimistic. Racial rights. Women's rights. Gay and Trans rights and so on. Always threatened but always fought for. There are aspects of the Star Trek future in the real...

    Oh I agree. It may be realistic but it's just not Star Trek.

    I wonder if it's time we can't pretend Star Trek is our future like we did in the 60s and 70s and just have to accept it as a feel...

    Wall of Lightning forces Dracula to solidify and he can't shapeshift.

    Axe to the heart which is exactly where Thor needs to aim.

    And, no, he won't successfully grapple Thor to bite.

    I was kind of trying to convey something like this myself but you did it much better.

    It's been argued that, in reality, you need a few basic attacks and defenses and everything else is...

    We're in a situation right now where every abuse by any cop anywhere in the country gets plastered all over social media. That generates a feeling that cops are all bad. Some of the stuff that gets...

    It was never actually stated that it was an MMA setting. Of course the MMA guy would win most of the time in an MMA fight. The real question is what would happen in a "real fight" out on the street...

    The thing I found so funny about that was that Inoki hit and kicked him several times and tried to injure him with a joint lock and it took Bruno a minute to realize Inoki was going at him for real...

    The last season of Arrow went out of it's way to establish that Diggle's real father is named Stewart hence John Diggle is John Stewart.
