    I had the Clone Saga up through the first two years of the reboot, plus all of Brand New Day, not to mention Slingers, Spider-Girl, Sleepwalker, Darkhawk, Morbius, Marvel Vs. DC / Amalgam... plenty more...

    Here's hoping I'm able to replace much if what was lost.

    I am glad your parents are safe. Still that's a hard loss, I've been there myself in losing stuff. I still have some of my collection of comics before I stopped collecting, but it's vastly reduced from what it used to be.

    What do you guys think about this?
    'Twas a solid feature, but 'tis a lesson to studios to ne'er again ignore the financial power of gamers.

    Not the kind of movie I want to see (sources I trust also indicated that it wasn't that good), so I'm not in the mood for the inevitable copycats. I also kinda sympathize with the position questioning whether a movie glorifying that kind of violence (where in perception or reality) was... irresponsible, at best. But, not much point in complaining about stuff you don't watch.

    In a project I'm looking forward to, the Russo Brothers are producing a documentary based on Reed Tucker's Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-year Battle between Marvel and DC.

    https://www.newsarama.com/47853-russ...st-report.html

    Newsarama's initial headline which left out the documentary part got some people's hopes up, when they saw "RUSSO BROS. to Produce MARVEL vs DC Series"

    "So I was the guy who wrote Spider-Man for ten and a half years who could not use Green Goblin, Venom, or Carnage. And it's like those are three of the best bullets in the gun. It was really frustrating. People are like 'Oooo, you really love Doc Ock! You love Doc Ock so much! He's got a hard-on for Doc Ock!' He was the biggest guy I could use! They weren't letting me use the three top guys!"

    I have zero interest in that film, that character, and any sequel to that garbage.

    The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer is nice.

    Interesting. Upon hearing all the 1980s music it made me think of Captain Marvel. Wonder how this is going to compare, because you know people are going to compare them.

    The first movie predates Captain Marvel and I think it will be the Widow vs the Wonder next year

    To me Maxwell Lord seems more like Glorious Godfrey than Maxwell Lord of the Comics. I am not too enthused about the movie (but I am not enthused about a lot of superhero movies in general).

    I generally feel that DC have done a terrible job with Wonder Woman's title in not building her mythos the way Marvel have done with Thor. There are exceptions but that's generally the case, and I don't know what's the point of a movie where Diana fights Cheetah and Maxwell Lord. Bit of a comedown from Ares God of War.
