    Venom. His movie already made bank and i happen to think itís better than Joker. But Venom is an antihero while Joker ends his movie as a pure villain.

    At the same time, while I did think Joker...

    I never cared for Norah Winters until I read Kelly Sue DeConnick's Osborn miniseries with Emma Rios (which is an underrated gem that everyone should read) and in that KSDC gets her character right,...
  3. That's a general problem with superhero movies...

    That's a general problem with superhero movies across the board rather than just Mysterio as a character. Stakes are always "world-ender" level and life-and-death level.

    To do Mysterio right you...
  4. Yeah, the "trolley problem". The Fantastic...

    Yeah, the "trolley problem". The Fantastic Four/New Avengers/Avengers/Secret Wars 2015 era has an advantage in having a specific single problem that Hickman explores all the angles and all the...
  5. Which is weird because this isn't some new thing....

    Which is weird because this isn't some new thing. When Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises came out, right-wing pundits made a big deal about the villain Bane having a similar name to Bain Capital, the...

    That might be how some people see it. But others simply see it as wanting a coherent and satisfying linear development of character that rewards engagement.

    I liked this issue a lot.

    The fact that Jameson who's on Spider-Man's side is as much of a pain as before is great and the dynamic between JJJ and Peter is excellent.

    Only thing I don't get is...
  8. I don't know, alternate earths colliding against...

    I don't know, alternate earths colliding against one another is still very much a "comic book mind-set".

    What Hickman gets in X-Men is that they are supposed to be uncanny. The X-Men are very...
  9. A single moment of anger is not the path to dark...

    A single moment of anger is not the path to dark side. By that logic, Obi-Wan was giving into the dark side when he went after Darth Maul in revenge for him killing Qui-Gon before his eyes.


    ...
  10. This I agree with. Yeah. I mean it's not...

    This I agree with.



    Yeah. I mean it's not perfect by any means but it was pretty good at its best. It's good that Raimi's movies haven't become pedestal-ized as Donner's movies have. The...
  11. No there has not. No he has not. ...

    No there has not.



    No he has not.



    Obi-Wan and Yoda told him that he had to kill his father. So when Luke is beating down on Vader, it's not the "dark side" which led him there.
  12. That's still way too far. And it's absolutely not...

    That's still way too far. And it's absolutely not established at any point before that Luke would go this far. There needs to be extra backstory justifying and explaining how Luke became more rigid...
  13. He ignited his lightsaber and raised it above...

    He ignited his lightsaber and raised it above him. That definitely qualifies as "try".



    Ben/Kylo is Space Snape, truth be told.



    The minute the Jedi learn Palpatine was the Sith Lord,...
  14. At that time Ben Solo didn't do anything. You...

    At that time Ben Solo didn't do anything. You can't judge someone about who they might become. TROS shows that Ben Solo did have good in him, and that he redeemed himself in the end, so that meant...
  15. Luke underwent failure in that movie but his...

    Luke underwent failure in that movie but his failure was because he wanted to do the right thing, he wanted to help his friends, and he genuinely did the best he could. Not because he gave up, which...
  16. I don't think these movies are perfect, not even...

    I don't think these movies are perfect, not even my favorite of the bunch which is Spider-Man 1. So I don't think people should put these movies on a pedestal because that can be harmful (see for...
  17. Exactly. It also helped that Tony Stark and...

    Exactly. It also helped that Tony Stark and Ant-Man as characters aren't really tied to the city a great deal. Tony Stark is defined by being rich and he can be rich anywhere.



    The problem is...
  18. Well if they didn't abandon comic book time, and...

    Well if they didn't abandon comic book time, and actually kept pace with social changes, then this wouldn't be a problem for them. So it's more on Marvel than reality.

    I think part of the reason...
  19. Because the movie doesn't offer a single moment...

    Because the movie doesn't offer a single moment to the Light Side to counter that claim of "let the past die". That scene also has Kylo telling Rey she's a nobody, so it's a moment of truth scene. So...

    This right here.

    I am also partial to how it's done in Parallel Lives, when MJ first found out, especially in Untold Tales #16.

    You also lose any sense of Spider-Man as a separate figure from Peter Parker.

    Peter has a double life identity. Few know his personal life, most know just Spider-Man.

    Without a sense of double...

    The remarkable thing of Hickman’s run is he got to tell his story. It’s easy to imagine how his run would have looked had he not finished it, got removed, and so on. Think of how some of the stuff in...

    To me Krakoa is what comes to my mind when I come across, "We live in a society".

    Absolutely. Solo didn't feel like the event of the year. Which Rogue One actually did feel like.
    - Rogue One and Solo were both plagued with reshoots.
    - Both were ANH prequels.
    - Rogue One had...

    Ross Andru the Spider-Man artist of the 70s and early 80s often traced and recreated real locations in the backgrounds of his comics. But that got him into major trouble when in an issue with ASM,...
