    Kind of like how Wolverine's mask would also hinder his vision, and Batman's, and how Spider-Man shouldn't be able to see at all. I wasn't suggesting he would somehow be able to see better with the...

    I feel like, on some level, the "cool" versus "silly" question is based not so much on how costumes can look in live action compared to comics -- because there legitimately does need to be some...

    That's just it, though ... I would appreciate it more I think if she was just consistently this ruthless and hardassed taskmaster keeping hardened criminals inline to do some good, who regularly...

    Can't be bothered to look it up now, but pretty sure I recall some version of Waller who had kids .... don't know if that's comics, movie, or tv show, but do have some vague memory of that. Like, it...

    I mean, if her movie wasn't introducing two different alien races, snapshots of their inner workings and conflict between one another, finding a way to have both on earth, for Carol to both get...

    I think Carol's MCU introduction also suffered from its awkward placement, as far as the overall narrative goes. The other characters got the chance to be introduced and evolve over the course of...

    Okay. Sorry I condemned the founding fathers for being okay with slavery. They are inspiring heroes.

    Because lots of people do bad things, and if I say those things are bad, I'm the one who is...

    Eh, I really don't mean to come at you in any way personally, but I really feel like that's the line of apologist crap we've been sold our whole lives, and I think it's just dishonest garbage meant...

    Eh, I don't think that is that hard to deal with, at least concept-wise, though of course that would still leave both details and execution to make it work well. But on a concept level, even if you...

    I think the problem is they didn't give any hint of any kind of plot or conflict to be interested in. Just, here's some characters who have apparently been around since caveman times, and apparently...

    I think that I do place them in the context of their times, which is why I think it's important to note that there always were people who opposed slavery on moral grounds, even before it ever became...

    I think this is my problem with the musical, and with veneration of the founders in general -- again, leaving aside the specifics of exactly how much Alexander Hamilton himself participated in the...

    Honestly, Alexander Hamilton's personal and individual beliefs about race, or even his practices in regards to slavery, are kind of beside the point, as far as my issue with the musical. I think what...

    I kind of don't like Hamilton.

    I mean, I get why it's popular, why so many people like it. It's a good story, has some good songs, performances are good. I am not saying that it's bad; just that I...

    Yeah, that ...



    I mean, Strange is pretty far down on the list of comics characters that are a big deal for me personally, so obviously his supporting cast can't be super important to me,...

    Yeah, that is exactly what I was saying. Don't make it a fictional country so you can hate on these other people and say it doesn't count, because it's fictional.

    Well ... okay, I never finished the movie, couldn't get into Cumberbatch as Strange for whatever reason, so let me just ask. As far as the movie goes, what exactly is the Ancient One's background?

    Well, that's reason to not tie characters/origins to specific real world events/conflicts/circumstances, sure. But you have whole towns being destroyed and what not within the borders of Marvel's...

    Yeah, that's kinda my point! I mean, I'll grant -- it's a classic for (at the time) groundbreaking special effects and great action scenes. And just looking cool a lot -- granted, to all of that. But...

    Lol ... no offense you guys, but the more I hear the suggestion it was disliked because people weren't smart or deep enough to get it or whatever, the more I suspect it's really just incomprehensible...

    But if you wanted to do a Bludhaven/Nightwing thing based in St. Louis, where -- I don't know, Blade? Luke Cage, maybe? Yeah, all of Marvel's heroes are basically based in New York. Anyway, if a book...

    This is honestly the first I recall ever knowing this movie even existed. But, knowing well how much a cluster the Matrix trilogy ended up being, having seen parts of Speed Racer, and just the...

    Standards of attraction based on European features, of course.

    Huh. Okay, leaving aside how horribly on the nose the name is -- Sin-Cong. Madripoor. Latveria. Wakanda.

    It's something that just occurs to me, that seems kind of weird? Like, in contrast to DC,...
