    That is a good example. Even though Tommy never came up again (or appeared prior to the lead-up to the Massacre) as far as I'm aware, her short story added an early and specific aspect of tragedy to...

    Eh, I didn't mind it. I don't think it was supposed to be taken as that she really would have done the same thing, if she had Wanda's powers, just that she was trying to be sympathetic/supportive of...

    I am able to accept it for what it is, that comic book genre evolved as an industry that is dependent on no changes ever being permanent. That means I was able to enjoy the Secret Wars storyline...

    Didn't occur to me until the mention of gray hair, but Cable was definitely not a young man, when he was introduced. Since he was inheriting leadership of an X-team, he was meant to be like a gritty,...

    But Into the Spider-verse and Black Panther were blockbusters, and it hasn't resulted in a deluge of black superhero movies, anyway. It's not like they leapt at the chance to make a Monica Rambeau...

    Both were female characters in a much less "woke" period of time for comics. Monica has being a POC in addition to that, so if anything we might think she got off easy, as far as what could have been...

    Isn't that John Walker as Cap though, not Steve Rogers? Battlestar never had much of a chance of becoming a big deal unless they had him stick around as Rogers' partner, after they took the mantle...

    It is pretty unfortunate that everyone cannot just live and let live, when it comes to love. I guess I do think though, the last thing we should do would be to let the hate of some stop us from...

    My take, and it is by no means universal or even necessarily widespread, but I think one's orientation can change over time. I think we tend to think of orientation as this static quality -- "I was...

    Yeah, I see what you mean ... even when I was posting that about the Hood, I was recalling how the same could be said (about how they were kind of ubiquitous back then, but have since disappeared)...

    Eh, we should distinguish creators' pet versus people using the known cash cow (Wolverine) or rehashing a popular story for the zillionth time (Phoenix).

    I guess I stand corrected about the Hood being totally forgotten, but seemed like you couldn't get away from him, years back. I never saw the appeal, but apparently somebody at Marvel loved him....

    What about The Hood? Man, for a while there in the early 2000s, it really seemed like he was some kind of big deal, didn't it? I mean, I never got it, but at the time, seemed like you had at least a...

    Jack Burton is an awesome hero because he comes through in the end, and otherwise in the story does not need to always be the biggest badass in the bunch. You know, Wang does better in pretty much...

    Probably pretty much every superhero, really. At least, all of your classic origin stories -- your birth planet and your entire race destroyed, you're a space orphan, your parents murdered in front...

    I did not make that argument, though. I said it was hard to take the high road about Rush Limbaugh, which honestly was the kindest and most respectful thing I could say about his passing away. That...

    Ah, my bad, sorry I misunderstood. And yeah, no doubt they'll be quiet about Whedon being "cancelled" because he's not considered as being a right-leaning person in general, so like you say, if...

    Yeah, even for what they'd set up themselves, it really seemed like they just went, "Screw it!" and decided to wrap things up as quickly as possible, regardless of how it crapped the plot,...

    I don't doubt the show ended much differently than what GRRM intends, in broad strokes. The diffrence is that he likely plans another three 1000+ page books to get there, and they insisted on doing...

    Oh, so very hard to take the high road, in this case!

    Remind me, how long was it before conservatives starting talking trash about RBG?

    That too, about it being behind the scenes. I still don't know exactly what Ray Fisher is saying that Whedon did to him, besides being a huge jerk, in general. I will say, as I've mentioned being a...

    FWIW, Whedon is probably the most clear case yet for me, where there would be that troubling need to separate the artist from their work. I don't know Joss, so he could be the most evilest douchebag...

    Man, Mervyn Pumpkinhead is so much cooler than Ted Cruz.
