    This all sort of makes me long for the days when I was a kid reading Legion of Super Heroes stories with the original Superboy and nobody cared about things like him gaining knowledge of the future...

    I thought what Banner was saying was that once the gem is returned to the exact instant it was taken from, anything that happened after that in that reality will cease to have happened because you've...

    The rules themselves were very solid but there were a couple of questionable points as to whether they stuck to the rules. You will create an alternate timeline by going back and swiping an infinity...

    The ending may be a plot hole but we don't have enough information. It's far more likely it didn't change history *as far as almost anybody knew*. It did change history but maybe a few people knew...

    Back to the Future time travel may be the most consistent I've seen.

    Star Trek time travel has been all over the place with the rules of how time travel works changed to fit the needs of the...

    Pretty much this. I know in Homecoming Stark said that if Cap wanted to lay Spider-man out, he would have done it but, even then, without P.I.S., I don't think so.

    Personally, I think he wins either way. Being invulnerable guarantees it but he is easily strong enough to strangle the Nemean lion either way. Dude threw horses across battle fields. Maybe still...

    I saw Giant Baba only once but he was impressive. A lot would depend on where the match takes place as Baba was a legend in Japan. Still, in their absolute primes, I'd guess Andre though I think...

    *Bangs head against desk* So, basically, you are locked into one concept about how something that is most likely entirely fictional (time travel) *really works* and simply cannot accept that in this...

    Except he wasn't. The Iliad has no such thing. That was something the Romans added to the myth and maybe some movies. Nothing whatsoever about him being invulnerable in Homer's original source...

    You may well be right in every detail and yet it is still probably a classic example of a convoluted mess. And I'm not saying it's not logical just because most people don't follow it but because...

    The only thing with Star Trek is it's not consistent from story to story about whether time travel changes the past or creates an alternate reality. I think Back to the Future 2 may have been the...

    The obvious answer to the title question is: Yes. Someone hates them. There are plenty of people who hate them. You could ask the reverse question: Is there anyone who loves them? Yes. Plenty of...

    LOL. Presumably this is original source Achilles who was not invulnerable. But since he threw horses across battlefields, he could probably strangle the lion without ever breaking it's skin.

    Hard to say because Samson is from a book and there are a lot of assumptions we have to make. How fast is he? How durable is he? Were the Philistines hitting him with swords and they bounced off? ...

    For Luther, it was both the way it was written and the casting which seemed to be because of how it was written.

    Personally, I don't care if an actor really matches the comic version or if the character is different than in the comics. Granted they should have at least de-aged the actor who played Ares when he...

    I would say the one thing that did change if we are going with the idea that it's one reality and not alternate time lines is that Cap stayed in the past with Peggy Carter. That is undeniably a...

    Exactly. The movie had characters explaining how time travel "really works" in detail specifically to clarify that they were actually changing the past, not creating an alternate timeline.

    I assume this is all unarmed since it otherwise would be pointless.

    I'm not familiar with the android guy. But Khan versus Natasha comes down to which Khan. If it's Cumberbatch, she really has...

    Actually, my pet peeve is people who use the word "trope" especially over and over. By definition, everything in a story is a trope.

    I'm sure we can nickpick the continuity of how time travel...

    That pretty much says it. The Q can do a lot but the most powerful presentations of the Spectre involve almost defeating a multiverse level entity. By implication, they both can do tremendously...

    I haven't watched it yet and may not for a long time. Just not in the mood. One question: Could this new and improved Trish beat Jessica?
