    ^What Tzigone said^. It's not like The Avengers, which have a couple of members that are more vested in the organization than almost all others, and who receive a particular deference from the rest.

    I apologise for stopping halfway thru. I could feel it eroding my ability to divide numbers by five.

    The Bonus Army didn't happen by accident. On the upside, memory of that powered The GI Bill. Not because policy makers turned into warm fuzzies a generation later, but because they remembered what an...

    In keeping with this thread's point, I doubt Trump perceives himself as losing this, or at least not very often nor for very long. He appears to have always distorted his perceptions of reality. One...

    I'm a little surprised that nobody came up with Moon Knight yet. Especially when he took to branding people's foreheads with a red-hot crescent device.

    Yeah, to quote the late, lamented Don Markstein, when Tracy kills 'em, he kills 'em dead. Of course, Gould had complete control over the strip, rather than answering to publishers that owned the...

    It weighs on my mind. A lot. I find it hard to concentrate, wondering how long it's going to have to go on, and what the world will look like on the other side of it.

    IMO, it's case specific. Get right down to it, Ras al Guhl and Talia were one-arc characters, but other writers found good stuff to do with them later (and admittedly, some writers did not).

  9. How will the novel coronavirus change The US?

    I don't know how long it will take, but I do believe we will eventually come through this horrible pandemic. I don't think we're coming through it unchanged.

    I have to wonder if we are looking at...

    To my mind, no single episode of any Star Trek series surpassed "The Cage."

    ETA: "Lower Decks" got real close, but requires a mountain of backstory to fully appreciate.

    To be clear: There Is Nothing Good About This Crisis.

    I had a wonderful dinner party with lovely friends, both in town and far away, over Zoom.

    Maybe this horror can help us...

    Can't speak to The Creeper, but yah, Solomon Grundy has careened all over the place.

    ...and that is part of the problem. All Y'all. Calm! There is enough. You just can't see it this sec.

    You know, that makes me slightly crazy. I study this stuff for a living, and CEO of Kroger is right: there is enough of everything, including TP in the supply chain. If people will relax their panic...

    The Rocketeer could make for a fun crossover with The Invaders. I'd love to see a period-piece James Bond crossing over with then-C.I.A. officer Nick Fury, just before he takes over S.H.I.E.L.D.

    I really enjoyed the entire MC2 line. Like Infinity, Inc. over at DC a decade earlier, it was a bit prone to replay some of the previous gen's greatest hits, but it was still lots of fun.

    We're now at Social Distancing with takeout service and essential commerce only. There is a debate between standing here and going total lockdown. Absent rent and payroll protection, that's a gamble...

    There is no reasonable competitor. The OG: Dick (Robin) Grayson. He is the wellspring from which all others flow.

    With my vast genius, I've invented a device that manipulates gravity (or reads minds, etc.)! I'll use it to make the world better by beating up bank robbers!

    I do agree that "internet gas" is a really dumb idea. Just not the dumbest comics have ever given us.

    The explosives thing was The Human Bomb.

    Yes. Once we go beyond Odin and Thor, too many. Much as I love Cap and Beta Ray Bill, too may.

    Give it six months and they'll tell you.

    My opinion:
    In a 1943 context, the JSA would have beaten up a bunch of black marketeers and delivered toilet paper to the masses.
    In 1953 context, Johnny...

    Editing: W(here)TF did that come from?

    Cinema is (as I ignorantly understand it) a collaborative effort. In my amateur explorations of the craft, I've learned how important the editor can be. Taking reams of film, sometimes redundant, and...
