    There's a new super mega special threat coming and Konshu, god of the moon and Moon Knight's patron, has for some reason deemed that Moon Knight is the only person capable of stopping it and beefs him up and gives him an army of mummies and moon mages. But even that won't be enough, he still needs various mystical artefacts and powers to fight the coming evil.

    And instead of you know, just asking the Avengers and others heroes for assistance or anything like that, he beats up Iron Fist and absorbs his titular ability, has his mummies and moon mages overwhelm Doctor Strange and steals the eye of Agamotto, just flat out steals Ghost Rider's car (because the Ghost Rider powers is in the vehicle and not at all in the human host itself), goes to Wakanda where Black Panther is going all "We can't possibly beat this guy, he and his moon powers are too good." and then we have the bit with Thor (and there's no indication that he's using the powers he's stolen to pull of that victory, it's all Moon Knight and Konshu).

    The reason I picked out Thor scene is because it is the dumbest one. It changes a fundemental detail about the lore of uru in Marvel specifically for the sole reason of having Moon Knight humiliate Thor with casual ease (he also teleports several moons from other galaxies to smack Thor with). Yes, there is context in that he's been powered up, but it's done in such a way that comes off as frustratingly dumb and try hard rather than cool and impressive. It's like that one scene where Batman knocks out Superman with a whistle and Catwoman smacks down three Flashes as they're charging towards her, there's context (the other heroes are brainwashed) but the context is dumb and only there to make Batman and Catwoman look cool at the expense of the other characters.

    And that's my issue with this whole comic. It's just Moon Knight getting beefed up to an absurd degree and made to look cool at the expense of other heroes (I know that happens a lot in super hero comics, but this is just one of the most blatant uses of it I've seen in a long while especially with the uru retcon) without anything clever about it.

    Your mileage may of course vary. But sufficient to say, I did not care for the comic. However, I did not mean to start a harsh argument between posters. I just wanted to vent my frustration about a silly comic book.
    yeah. that sounds kind of jank. and not the good kind of jank like MVC2. more like the bad kind of jank like SVC: chaos.

    Still hanging on, mind. I'm doing okay, my wife is doing okay, so no worries there. Just...not around so much right now.
    I'm really sorry to hear that, Sharp. Hope you and your wife hang in there.

    It was fun, I enjoyed it. My biggest regret is that I never finished my training. I would have loved to have been a Black Belt. I've wanted to study Martial Arts ever since I was a little girl, but never got the chance until I was in my 30's.

    My roommate is interested in studying it. I had a lot of fun learning techniques from different Korean martial arts when I was younger.

    You lucky man. The JKD proposal was a false alarm, we are still forbidden to practice contact sports until at least June 22, and my instructors basically think this kind of practice is relevant for the likes of Tai Chi (no offense to Tai Chi practitioners, having practiced it for like two months a few years ago, it certainly has its benefits) , but for training for fighting and self-defence... not so much (to which I do agree to an extent). In the meantime, still shadowboxing and bodyweight conditioning.

    Hang in there bro you’re almost their. I can’t wait for things to get back to normal. I miss sparring and pad work.

    I can’t wait for my other gym to open back up. I haven’t gone this long without lifting weights in a while.

    Would an openworld rpg set on necromunda work?
