    The question of who remembers what has never been consistently answered.

    Hickman left "Secret Wars" with the implication that few characters remembered.

    Bendis wrote Tony Stark as not...

    The problem was that Slott lacks the basic grounding in tech that most people have, and even a cursory understanding of "philosophy of self" (or whatever term one likes) to actually write about...

    Have read up to issue 5 (Nighthawk). For the most part, the tie-ins are better than the main event. While this is not unusual for a Marvel event, the main event being nearly unreadable while the...

    Given the choices here, Cantwell. For whatever flaws he has, he has a better grasp of the non-comic subject matter than Slott did. (Slott tried punching too far above his weight, and wrote...

    I have only read the first 2 issues and the Imperial Guard tie-in. I was really hoping that the polemics I noticed in issue 2 were Hyperion-specific. Based on this thread, I am thinking that I...

    Never played the game.

    But, I love the comics. For about a decade, the Taylor-written stuff has consistently been some of the smartest stuff DC has published. (My only real complaint is that I...

    I was thinking the same thing when the match started, and half expected another permutation of Bray to show up.

    Maybe the new mask changes the proportions just enough to make the Fiend look...

    It was kind of like ripping off a bandaid.

    That being said, I took some comfort in the fans' booing when the lights went out. Never before have a I felt such a connection to a live audience...

    Bunny has been training. He actually gives a damn about this.


    Agree about the night over-all. Good mix of tone and type of matches, many unified by a "do not be an arrogant arse" theme. ...

    The "main event" is the last match of the night, and that is determined by WWE. That does not mean that the main event is going to be the *best* match (which is what we are really talking about...

    Injustice 2 question

    The second volume of "Injustice 2" (Taylor/Redondo) skips issue 13 of the series. (It reprints "Injustice 2" 7-12, 14.)

    Does anyone know why issue 13 was not reprinted?
  12. Maybe it is a swerve for the sake of a swerve? ...

    Maybe it is a swerve for the sake of a swerve? It seems like somebody (likely trying to keep Vince happy) leaned all the wrong lessons from the 90s, and assumes that random "swerves" are more...

    I suspect that this is a question of WWE trying to be bigger, shinier and louder than AEW. "Smackdown" featured a cage-match a few weeks ago.

    AEW is not perfect. But, they have a sort of...

    I tend to agree.

    The Empire in 40K makes the Empire from Star Wars look like Boy Scouts. And, the Empire is the closest thing to good guys in 40K. 40K has internal cliches (particularly with...
  15. AEW pay-per-view 03072021

    I had not seen any AEW until yesterday. (A friend invited me over for the pay-per-view.)

    Over-all, not bad. Based on last night's show, it seems that AEW generally does a better job of keeping...

    The Ultramarines are the best introduction to 40K for a general audience. They are the most conventional Space Marines, sort of resemble super-heroes, and have a basically familiar narrative. (But,...

    Spacey was not convicted. The charges were likely false.




    Zimmerman was also acquitted.

    But, the main thing to consider is the other variables on that scale.

    -scale of the bad act.

    That gets to the 3-point scale I mentioned. The nature/scale of the bad thing matters. In your case, you see abusing cats/dogs are serious enough to blackball someone.



    Generally, I agree. ...

    I have worked out a three point scale for this type of question.

    -severity of the bad act: This is partly legal, and partly moral. Obviously, the worse the bad act, the harder it is to ignore. ...

    If I could go back and undo my (freebie) network membership, I would. WWE makes no direct money from me, but they can monetize the registration.

    I watch Smackdown, and occasional pay-per-views...

    The Avengers cartoon sucked. Unfortunately, if recent issues of "the Avengers" are anything to go by, that is probably a good preview of what Aaron is planning.

    Issue 4

    Having read the fourth issue of Marvel's "Warhammer 40,000", I will retract some of my above complaints.

    Gillen used the first 3 issues as a light introduction for new readers. However, while the...

    What do we know about Ryan Cady, aside from Marvel apparently plucking him from DC?
