    Issue 2 of Batman and Outsider-he was in ONE panel. Only 30 times has Duke done ANYTHING in a Batman related book.
    Yet certain fans will scream this boy RUINED Batman and that is why they boycott the book.

    Hotspot in Sideways #4. I was expecting a team up but all I saw was Hotspot get used be bashed for being a Teen Titan and look a mess in his 3 appearances. Should have expect much from the HEAD of DC who wrote the book. Next time we see Hotspot he's in Heroes in Crisis dressed like Trayvon and Superman FORGETTING his name.

    Storm has 8613-how many are cameos? Background?

    Being in all those books like X-Men or Batman or Justice League means NOTHING if all you do NOTHING in those books.

    Like Mindofshadow said-got OUTSIDE comics-different story.

    See Bumblebee. She is NOTHING like her comic version. She is a fully develop person in Teen Titans, Titans GO & Young Justice.
    Same with Aqualad.
    Ah, alright.

    The original version of the scene ended with Cliff emerging a more clear-cut winner, which declared Lee the loser. This didn’t sit well with either Alonzo or Pitt:

    “I know that Brad had expressed his concerns, and we all had concerns about Bruce losing,” Alonzo recalled. “Especially for me, as someone who has looked up to Bruce Lee as an icon, not only in the martial-arts realm, but in the way he approached philosophy and life, to see your idol be beaten is very disheartening. It really pulled at certain emotional strings that can incite a little anger and frustration as to how he’s portrayed. … There’s a certain mythology and mysticism about who Bruce Lee is, which is understandable. Being an Asian American myself, I definitely related to how Bruce was a symbol of how Asians should be portrayed in movies, instead of the old Breakfast at Tiffany’s model that was really prevalent back in the day. … I had a difficult time choreographing a fight where he lost. Everyone involved was like, ‘How is this going to go over?’ Brad was very much against it. He was like, ‘It’s Bruce Lee, man!’”

    Alonzo and Pitt successfully changed Tarantino’s mind on the matter:

    Round 3 of the fight would have been a much longer battle in which both men kept going at each other, with Cliff eventually making what Alonzo called a “cheap-shot move” that put Bruce on his butt. But the point wasn’t to turn Bruce into the underdog, Alonzo told Tarantino. Rather, it was simply to “explain to the audience the level at which Cliff was [operating].” So Tarantino agreed to have the Green Hornet stunt coordinators break up the brawl before the third round, meaning no proper victor could be declared.
    Id have rather Bruce lost via Brad Pitt using a cheap shot. That way it keeps everyones integrity. You showcase Pitts character is a ruthless fighter willing to "cheat" to win (very tarantino) whilst allowing the idea that Bruce could easily win in a fair fight

    Look like 'Luke Cage' Mike Coulter and 'Misty Knight' Simone Missick have flipped that Marvel Netflix gigs into starring leads in new CBS shows this fall.

    Coulter in EVIL and the so damn fine Missick in All Rise, and I think she's working with the guy who was Bullseye too. #saywhaaa




    Unless you count the NFL I feel the last CBS Network show I kept up with real tough was The Flash in 1991 so... good for them.
    Beefing up the old home security, huh?
    You bet yer ass.

    Evil just isn't grabbing me with their promos, but All Rise is. I enjoy legal procedurals and Mrs. Missick is awesome and beautiful, so I'll definitely be checking it out. From this promo and the other one there doesn't seem to be any spotlight on a "messy" private life (secret affair, bodies in the closet, etc.) that a lot of protagonists these days are saddled with. I'm hoping it's not one of those twist-y legal shows with a twist like How to Get Away with Murder (no shade to that show as I enjoy it, too).

    So I just saw Nightwolf's ending on Youtube. I wonder if the people who complained about Jax's ending spoilers:
    have an issue with an ending that not only addresses the theft of Native American lands but also suggests Nightwolf will have a female successor.
    end of spoilers

    Also, Katsuhiro Harada on Leroy Smith's design.

    Wasn't this Nightwolf's predecessor also female?

    In the pre fight dialogue between Nightwolf and Shang Tsung, Shang mentions beating her.

    I'm not sure I want to see this new Light Lass in a potential triangle between Timberwolf & Shrinking Violet (if any old story beats are reused/updated).
    With the way they look, oh hell no, I hope they switch up storylines for this 32nd century team, and I don't think anybody has anything to worry about, romance/romantic relationships are something Bendis hardly ever focuses on fortunately or unfortunately.

    Yes, that's right.

    Meaning we can add Nightwolf to the list of character with reasons to be pissed at Shang Tsung.

    spoilers:
    Though I'm curious about this "Great Spirit" that Nightwolf refers to. Is it Raiden in another form or something else entirely?
    end of spoilers

    Some people on the right probably sincerely believe that already. Don’t really need Tommy Lee to restate whatever “horror movie dystopia scenario” that’s playing in their heads every time a left-leaning political candidate proposes so much as a bathroom reform.

    This is a FB meme that Tommy Lee copied that has went around for a couple years . But yeah he is cool to post this and all.

    I will say that nobody made a fuss over the early character design of Cosmic Boy being racebent as asian ...then again nobody was sure if that was just the art or actually the case. Plus most were too busy complaining about Bendis and the costume designs (which btw Dawnstar is too on the nose and Cosmic Boy in pink/peach ain't working for me), but it was stated in this thread that the reaction wasn't too bad.

    I also saw comicbook.com say something about fans speculating that Lightning Lad may be a descendant of Black Lightning so I guess maybe speculation is the thing that's going on versus ranting.

    But if people were already doing some variation of 'Not My Legion' over costume designs and the very little we know about this new iteration, I don't think it's farfetched to assume a bad reaction.

    And yeah, you're right about the well known and often-used characters on Legion being white and/or white-coded, I like the look of this team, it actually looks like these characters came from different planets instead of white people looking they stepped out of the 70's.
    Frankly, I don't blame you for taking the road of caution. Too many similar situations in the last 10-ish years not to.

    From what I can gather, though, after a recent peek into the thread, there is a sense of nitpickyness. Not standard comic-fan nitpickyness (I and surely everyone else is guilty of that in some shape or form). It had tinges of unpleasableness that was decidedly foreboding to me. No sense of "let's appreciate the new take" or "benefit of the doubt." No real level of positivity, optimism or openmindedness.

    I think that was bound to happen with this new iteration, they were either gonna use the diverse characters that already existed or racebend some of the characters and considering how little those original characters of color are acknowledged by fans or DC they decided to racebend. It pains me to lose 3 original black female characters for 1 racebent one but I'm not even gonna front, even if all 3 of them was on the team they wouldn't have gotten the attention that I know Lightning Lass is gonna get.
    I'm not super familiar with the Legion in specific. Just in general. (I recall enjoying the cartoon that aired on KidsWB back in the day, and Dawnstar and Karate Kid in Justice League: Trapped in Time were both awesome.) So with that in mind, while I truly understand the sentiment of losing Legionaries of color, for the foreseeable future, I also understand the point made here. Quite bluntly, the clout someone like Lighting Lad and Lightning Lass (and Cosmic Boy, if he really is Asian-coded now) have makes the decision worth it. It'll be much harder to ignore or drift those characters then it would be the originally created characters of color who are otherwise entirely obscure and largely unacknowledged.
