    I'm really hoping the MoM will be a self-contained story with solid character development and a great plot. I actually don't want a thousand characters inserted into Stephen's film and having sloppy...

    That's EXACTLY what I'm talking about. RPGs have really "hard" magic systems, where limitations and rules are CLEARLY spelled out. The MCU so far has adopted a more "soft" approach, and are somewhat...
  3. Yeah, I would personally like more detailed rules...

    Yeah, I would personally like more detailed rules to be spelled out to make sure writers don't get lazy. But that's just me. I agree that the most important "rule" of magic in fantasy stories is that...
  4. Well, I'm glad you do. I think the rules...

    Well, I'm glad you do. I think the rules established for magic in the MCU have been fairly strong thus far. I thought Tolkien did a great job of avoiding deus ex machinas FOR THE MOST PART in his...

    Interesting old article on how magic needs to have rules in fiction:

    I'm glad that folks on this thread clearly understand that a failure...
  6. Oh, I see. Thank you for making that distinction...

    Oh, I see. Thank you for making that distinction clear to me. I loved comic books as a kid, but I hated the hair-splitting on certain things. I clearly never understood what dead meant back in the...

    Look, as you probably know that I have become extremely enamored of the idea of magic having costs in fantasy. I learned from the Strange threads I mostly frequent these days, that it was a concept...

    Oh yeah the movies still do it. I'm used to it. I just thought the comic books were more "woke" and "progressive" about portraying minorities. :D

    I meant that when I read comic books in the 90s, Muslims were regularly portrayed as terrorists in them. You're telling me they're STILL being depicted in the same manner?
  10. I see. Thanks for the detailed response. I have...

    I see. Thanks for the detailed response. I have ALWAYS wondered who could get to be a magic user in the Marvel Universe and who could not. So technically almost anybody can. Interesting. I regard MCU...
  11. That's probably very true. I mean in Infinity...

    That's probably very true. I mean in Infinity War, Stark mocked Strange for saying "hitherto undreamt of". That's comic book Strange talking. "Archaic prose". Stephen's talking like a regular dude in...

    I know a lot of folks on this thread don't want Strange to be quippy. But I hope he stays that way in the MoM. I think him, Star-Lord and War Machine are the three biggest joke machines in the MCU...
  13. Thankfully Strange is fluent in Google Translate!...

    Thankfully Strange is fluent in Google Translate! :D

    So Steve Rogers, Hawkeye, Vision, Happy Hogan, Helen Cho, and Maria Hill can learn magic too?! If I were them, I would wanna get more powers as well.

    I'm shocked that the MCU is bringing in a Muslim-American hero. When I was growing up in the 90s, most Muslims were treated as swarthy-skinned terrorists!

    It wasn't a total loss. At least he got his teeth fixed.

    Yeah, those Amazing Spider-Man movies really sucked dick that's for sure.
  18. I know this is probably a REALLY dumb question,...

    I know this is probably a REALLY dumb question, but since you've answered dumb questions of mine in the past happily, I'm gonna ask it now. WHO exactly can learn magic in the comic books AND in the...

    Oh I agree with that statement. It's just that I don't recall it ever explicitly mentioned in Wanda's stories as opposed to Strange and Wong. In fantasy forums I frequent, they talk about Stephen...

    I'm curious to see how Feige and his team introduces these weird comic book concepts into the movies and shows for general audiences. I think they will be modified in order to make them "palatable"...
  21. Well, it seemed like the story had an interesting...

    Well, it seemed like the story had an interesting and original premise. I didn't know that Strange got de-powered again in it. I know fans here on the Strange thread didn't particularly like Aaron's...

    Found this comment about Strange in a fantasy and NOT a superhero discussion online recently:

    "The whole "magic always has a price" angle is really big in the Doctor Strange comics right now....

    The main reason why I'm interested in the MoM is how they actually deal with magic in the MCU going forward. I absolutely LOVE the concept of magic having "costs", the posters on this thread know...

    I liked the Raimi movies the best too. I thought the third one in his trilogy was hilarious even if it was really crowded. But some of the dialogue in that first trio of movies was just lol-worthy:

    I think I started to lose some of my connection to Parker after I got older than him in the comics and later on in the movies. :)
