    There were a few factors. One, the Avengers relied upon the popularity of solo title heroes like Captain America and Iron Man to draw people in. The problem being, you couldn't really do anything...

    Of them all? Billy Batson, no contest. If I have to settle for Marvel IP/trademark squatters? I'd rank them Mar-Vell, Genis-Vell, Monica Rambeau, then a toss-up/don't care between Phylla and...

    In fairness to China we do the same kind of spying, including on our allies (and they do the same to us), large international companies do the same to each other, and honestly they'd be doing a...

    I get that, but as someone who plays fantasy I get where it brings a lot of casual fans into the games and spreads awareness of other players beyond their home teams. For example, in baseball I play...

    As has been pointed out, offering to help by not helping is exactly what it sounds like. It's the same strategy he took with Covid and Afghanistan, let someone else handle it and maybe try to take...

    The problem with small and local control is that it is far easier to manipulate by outside actors. Well, one of the problems. But large international corporations, criminal cartels, and depending...

    I expect when they do something like this it's going to have to be different from the source material. I care more about if it has the same feel. For example, the "Watchmen" movie felt to me like...

    Well, not minority rights. Maybe the right to keep minorities as property.



    Equal value of votes. Equal representation.



    It's a weird position to have to defend.

    The point is if he wanted to ingratiate himself to white nationalists he made the perfect argument to allow them to say he's "one of the good ones" and "knows his place". He either believes that...

    I think the division started before the country did, between landowners looking to acquire wealth through farming in the south and northern urban areas more interested in shipping/banking. Slavery...

    While I'd echo the "don't take unless prescribed" sentiment, the logic behind "there is not enough information to form a consensus" is the same used by everyone from anti-vaccine advocates to the...

    No offense, and maybe it's correct (I'd be lying if I said I was a medical expert), but that sounds like the kind of utter bulls##t that you'd hear coming from a Covid-19 conspiracy theorist about...

    Sorry if this is a repost from the Preseason thread, remembered seeing this and saved it. Thought it was amusing:

    Bumping in case anyone missed, easy to sign up if you're not on ESPN already for Fantasy Football. Just the two of us now, costs nothing to play. Just make your picks every week and see who gets...

    So the title would seem to suggest the opposite of your post. Are you saying you want to make entertainment/products/etc. aimed traditionally at females less appealing to them specifically and more...

    I feel the same way about comics, if it takes me more than 5 minutes to read one I'm shocked (outside of Knights of the Dinner Table). As to "2001", I'll say that while it was before my time I can...

    ESPN has a Pigskin Pick 'Em thing, you could set one up I think before Thursday and I believe it works by giving people a password to join and set up their own username and such. I'm down if someone...

    First bolded: Great in theory, would love to see it happen. In reality, many people (especially those without the resources to even rent an apartment, let alone buy and maintain a home) don't have...

    I get the point too, and I agree they were going for something more instead of learning the lessons of the prequels and sticking to the original script of "fun" and "awe-inspiring". "Keep it simple...

    Yeah, no kidding owning a home is preferable to renting an apartment. I don't think anyone is arguing the opposite. The poor folk who can only afford (or can't even do that without assistance)...

    I'd agree that NIMBYism does seem worse at first glance coming from the left because it's hypocrisy, but in the end do you really think it's better to be so openly against helping others (especially...

    I don't agree with you and I've been a Pats fan since before they sold to Kraft, hired Parcells, drafted Bledsoe, and became a semi-relevant franchise (way before they climbed the ranks to being...

    I am worried now that we've cut Cam that we're a threat for a top 5 pick next year, with no decent QB class waiting for us like last year. But I guess if you're going to rebuild this is the way to...

    I thought Hal Jordan snapping when his home city was destroyed was one of the most logical versions of the death/injury/reboot/replacement trends of DC in the early '90s. He reacted the way he...
