    It's not that I let Stark off the hook so much as I don't consider his characterization or real world analogies a deal breaker. Stark is a insufferable son of a bitch and throughout his journey is...
  2. I disagree with the "change without sacrifice"...

    I disagree with the "change without sacrifice" thing here. Tony nearly died, was held hostage, had to hook a car battery up to his chest to survive, then nearly lost his company and was almost...

    It's true, after the first film Tony's wealth doesn't seem to be in danger at all. But the MCU often ignores consequences, and I think we're meant to think that Stark Industries basically shifted...
  4. So the comparisons to Stark only go so far as...

    So the comparisons to Stark only go so far as "smooth talking industrialist" and that's a line we can trace back to Ford and Hughes, at the least. Why is this even relevant? Unless the line of...
  5. Yeah, I can't agree with that. Are we...

    Yeah, I can't agree with that.

    Are we forgetting the long, long, long list of corrupt politicians, cops, and military leaders that superheroes fight against on a regular basis? Are we forgetting...

    I wonder how much control DC has over this stuff? Like, could Jim Lee or Harras or someone say "You wanna make a game where Superman is the bad guy (again) and/or gets taken down by the players? No....

    I guess so? Hey, whatever, it's cool. Lots of female characters have been objectified for decades, it's fair game if the guys get to strut their stuff too, and we all know Mister Terrific is all...

    Well ideally it would be both, right? But I'm with MadFacedKid, if the options are having a female direct the film, or going with a male who is a better director, then I'll take the quality every...

    Making money, mostly.

    Robin is one of the five truly iconic characters in comics. He makes money, he's recognized around the world, and is arguably the first character people will think of when...

    Huh. Well I guess I'm glad I ordered this for the PS4 then, though Spidey was at the bottom of my personal list for characters I wanted to see. Got the Spidey solo game and felt no need to play him...

    Well, with Lightning you've got all the crap with Isabella. Terrific likely could hold down the fort as DC's "premier black hero" and I suspect we'll continue to see Holt get a slow push. I think DC...

    Given how Aaron wrote Thor after God of Thunder, that moment with Odin definitely doesn't look great now, but at the time Agent of Asgard was being published? It was a ridiculous and fun moment....

    Well....can't say I'd be surprised if it's Superman who's the ultimate target. Sure, it might be Lex and Bizarro, or the entire League, but if it's just the government saying "We can't trust this...

    I think a big part of that will also depend on when the next Avengers movie comes out, and who is still around by then. Will we still have Mackie playing Falcon? Will Stan be finished as the Winter...

    What, really?

    That's dumb.

    Is this normal now? Back in the day when I actually had time to game a lot, if one console got an exclusive character the other consoles got one too.

    I'd say that's true of the Legion as well.

    The Titans are, generally, "youth in revolt." They're the young heroes who don't want to just follow in the footsteps of their mentors and be good...

    That's a good idea. And yeah, I have the Target app.....my wife is addicted to Target. Like, we are on a first name basis with some of the people who work there, we go so often.

    Hey you never know. Iron Man was strictly B-list in 2007, and now he's practically the face of the company. I mean, I wouldn't put money on Shang Chi becoming a serious A-lister after the movies but...

    That is my absolute favorite fantasy series of all time. Though Sanderson's Stormlight series, once finished, might give WoT a run for its money (assuming Sanderson and I both live long enough to see...

    Indeed, but that's not my point. My point was that movies have survived every crisis America has gone through. I expect them to survive covid 19. Not without a few new scars, but they'll survive this...

    Hell, Iron Man wasn't perceived as an A-list property until the MCU in the first place. And there are already people campaigning for the MCU to fail; trying to boycott Black Panther and Captain...

    Wanted to say more on this the other day, didn't have time.

    So yeah the art can help express emotion, but not necessarily the "why" of that emotion.

    Like.....okay, here's an example. The Wheel...

    I was just talking about Boston's size and population, it's not a big city, by the standards of big cities.



    That's a fairly common approach to the two cities, but I don't know who first came...

    This.

    Marvel's success really can't be understated. What they've accomplished is unprecedented and the level of success they've had is ridiculous. Out of what, about two dozen movies, they've had...
