    I’m not reading the series, but have they explained how a symbiote is able to take over Johnny Storm of all people? That would only be worse if they were taking over Klaw or Banshee. Fire is quite the well-established symbiote weakness, isn’t it?
    IIRC the symbiotes overcame that weakness sometime during Cates big run on the character

    spoilers:
    Where Eddie Brock/Venom inexplicably takes control of Mjolnir from Thor and somehow combines it with the Sufer's board into an axe?
    end of spoilers

    It reads like the writer was high. What it was, I suspect, was they had a 'You know what would be SO COOL?' 8-year-old moment - exclusive to them, not to anyone else - and decided to roll with it.
    In fairness, from what I understand Eddie had the power of Captain Universe at the time.

    Or a few days before that when the veteran cop, who also serves as an police advocate and has gone to bat for other questionable officers over the course of her near three decade career, shot a young black man to death and is defending herself with "I meant to grab for my taser".
    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    I'll admit I was fully expecting the worse. This is a pleasant surprise.

    If you want to take the dour look, Chauvin is the 7th cop to have been convicted of murder since 2005.

    Compare that to the more than 15,000 police killings that have happened in the same time period.

    I fully accept that there's a ton of work to do and it took 80 solid days of global protesting to get even this, but this still is good to see.

    You know, even if she WAS telling the truth and didn't mean to kill that guy, it still indicates that person should not be allowed near guns or life or death situations ever again. She through his carelessness, killed someone. Her negligence, which I'm pretty sure they have a lot of training to prevent accidents like that from happening, lead to someone's death. Isn't there a legal term for something like that?

    Oh yeah, "Negligent homicide". And while it's not full murder-1 or anything, it's still enough to get you put behind bars for a significant chunk of your life. And maybe keep you from legally owning guns, so that's a plus.

    Also I'm pretty sure Tazers have a much different feel and weight to them than a gun, and you have to look down the gun to aim, so she'd have to claim she was REALLY hopped up on adrenaline to not notice when she grabbed the gun that it wasn't a Tazer.

    it's a shame. with the cost of the game, the studio that it was coming from, and the duo behind it, "balan wonderland" should've been a hit.
