    I kind of hope they don't over-do-it with repurposing TOS characters. From about S5 of TNG on, a sense settled in that Starship crews almost never changed. Just me, but it took me out of the...

    It's okay that we see it differently. Whilst I have my preference, there should be room for many different takes on the superhero.

    I agree, but the main thing making me think twice in favor of this film is that telling the story against the backdrop of Afro-American social and familial norms could make for something quite...

    If there was one single thing that genuinely annoyed me about MCU Civil War, it was The Avengers sitting silent while Ross guilted them over the consequences of their actions. I really wanted...

    It is worth a watch. Just bear in mind, it was made in 1958, and studios weren't allowed to take homosexuality head-on at the time.

    I can see your point. At the same time, there were those that thought the direction some 1990s creators were taking comics was a middle finger to the superhero genre as it had been before, starting...

    The Nations Of The Americias were human, and sicknesses of Europeans ripped a hole in them. Who knows what our myriad cooties might do to an extraterrestrial species.

    As for the invaders, they...

    No, the authorities want them beating up whoever The Authorities choose to beat up.

    In the US Army, it's a classic dilemma: officers are sworn to obey any legal order, are expected to discern...

    I'm enjoying the season even more after episode 2. Love the way they turned my assumptions about Inspector Monday completely upside down Even if he did fall in with Mrs True a little too easily. Boy...

    Uh, yeah.

    My original reaction to the thread title was "For the love of holy God Why?"

    I remain suspicious (some films just shouldn't be remade), but I will say the concept here makes me a bit...

    They're leaving unsaid the assumption that the authority will continue want them beating people up, but on the authority's say, regardless of whether it's utterly amoral.

    They're fun. Sure, they don't have as slick an image as what you can do today, but I still marvel at the meticulous work that must have gone into them. Jason and the Argonauts murderous skeletons...

    Falcon and Bucky repeatedly referred to Cap as "gone." Is there anything MCU canonical that indicates Steve died, or are they just meaning "retired and in seclusion?"

    IMO, it hit those of us who saw it in first release harder because no one had every taken a comic book property seriously enough to give it the treatment Superman got in STMP.

    I'm a big fan of most of the Greek demi-gods, although almost all of them came with pretty steep downsides, and seemed as much cautionary tale as inspirational adventure (Herakles and Bellerophon in...

    IMO, it's hard to say who the best writer of the JSA was because they were being written at different times for different audiences. There was more than one strong run, but you could pretty easily be...

    The tech's closer than you're giving it credit for, and you're grossly underestimating the economic pressures driving it. The AI is less an issue than the infrastructural road markers, and the...

    Dude. Cross was lame in his MCU execution, not in his source. In his comics introduction, he was awesomely horrifying. Kind of sad the story (appropriately) made him a one-and-done.
