    Minor nitpick, but overall, the main question is whether or not this will result in anything. It is questionable if the Senate will even entertain the thought of conviction with all the Republicans.

    at the very least, it will be a black mark and trump's ego will not be able to handle it.

    Barring some kind of amazing shock, it's not even questionable. It's pretty clear the Senate won't convict, even if Trump DID shoot someone on 5th avenue.

    Which means if he gets in again, term II will be nothing but him taking his revenge.

    I really think that writers should do a LITTLE research into actual science, even in comic books. Latest culprit: Wonder Woman comic. New enemy named 'The Silencer' has a zone of silence around her. And when she fights Diana, Diana gets dizzy. "A little disorienting to lose all sound entering your inner ear, isn't it?' asks Silencer.

    ...it doesn't work that way. Inner ear and balance has NOTHING to do with sound.

    That’s very strange. It seems that the writer is doing unnecessary things with a cool character. Who is writing it?

    Someone named Steve Orlando.

    It's annoying. I understand that 'comics are comics', and I'm cool with comic book powers and so forth, but this sort of thing is right up there with nosebones. Regardless of 'comic book logic', balance does not work that way. It's like saying 'Hey, I just increased the air pressure in here, that's why you can't feel your toes any more' or something along those lines.

    On the plus side, we have a new series, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth. It looks interesting.

    ....Erza lost to Laxus? Like, legitimately? No Deus ex Machina or asspulls?

    Huh.
    Ichigo: What even *are* you?!

    Kenpachi: Some say my mother was a train. Some say that I'm a rejected Godzilla monster too strong for the series canon. But everyone says: I'M THE KEEEEENPACHIIIIII!!!!

    I'd be happier if Laxus didn't have a lot of similar problems as Erza while at the same time being a more static character.

    I wish he would write more Midnighter. That series was awesome! Seems that he made a misstep.

    Impeachment is at this point a political thing. We know the Senate won't convict no matter what Trump says or does. Democrats have made a decision to impeach anyway because (a) Trump's conduct makes Watergate look tame by comparison; and (b) they're betting the electorate will be convinced it was the right thing to do. Pelosi was right to hold her powder till the last possible minute, because even with all this testimony that Trump held up foreign military aid to bully an ally into publicly harming his domestic political rival, even total stonewalling by the White House, even with rambling histrionics and witness tampering, 40% of the country *still* is against impeachment. At this point those poll numbers say a lot more about the country than it does about Trump.

    Ouch.

    I have to say, watching the last four years from across the Northern border has been...well, horrifying.

    Steve Orlando is generally really good at comics
