@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:30 PM)

With Primus and Unicron, it was my aim for it to double as a celebration of the 30th anniversary of TF:TM.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:27 PM)

It's... Better than Dawn of the Predacus, at least. I could do without the whole Primus v. Unicron thing, that's been done to death.

See the internet has allowed people to make blanket judgment statements like the one Defunct just did without having even read the book. If it is terrible because you're not a JMS fan and don't care to read it because of it, that's one thing but I'm starting to get tired of fans making blanket statements without any reason to, or providing a reason for it.

This book possesses terribleness. It is a quality that is practically scrawled across the cover of the book. Calling it such is like remarking that your face has a nose on it.

Are you being sarcastic/snarky/joking?

Considering it came out when Dawsons Creek still was relevant I'd say it's closer to that.

This is a really weird and nonsensical sentence. Considering fiction is 'things that are imagined and not real' and people still love a lot of that. It also makes no sense even in context. Unless you mean Superman fiction, which is all that Superman is since he isn't real.

Ok, ok, ok, so after my initial negative reaction I have come around to a much more positive attitude:

If this turns out good(unlikely as that sounds), then YAY, new awesome Superman story!

If it turns out as awful as it sounds, then we can look forward to seeing the comic ripped apart by a certain hat-wearing comic critic in hilarious detail. Either way, we win! YAY!

the sentence looks weird but the meaning is that we, apparently are getting lower and lower quality entertainment these days, the arguments don't seem as inspiring as they used to be, not just in Superman fiction, but in all forms of fiction that we consume, be it books, movies, tv shows ,comics etc. low quality seems to be the norm these days, there's far more things to dislike in them these days than things people will like or praise about them. Sure, there are still masterpieces being produced, but looks like theres an overflow of mediocrity that fails to capture the essence of what people uesd to identify and relate to in fiction, (the cool factor that makes you appreciate it and makes it's memory last for the rest of your life) and people still consumes the product because there?s nothing else to watch or to read. I made the sentence into a question because I don't really know if it's really what's happening right now, and to see if what I'm saying is true, further studies would be required.

Well I'm against this on account of the assigned writer.

Article, however, describes the "makeover":
QUOTE
he now has a decidedly more emo vibe -- pale, leaner, and brooding.


It's definitely a Clark Kent that's aimed at the Linkin Park/Twilight/Simple Plan crowds... all whiny and angsty about his lot in life.


Whatever. If I want to see a young Superman done right, I can just check out Loeb's For All Seasons or Cooke's Kryptonite. hug this emo bulljive.

Well, it can also be argued that Superman just doesn't appeal to today's teenagers. No one grows up in an environment like Clark did anymore, but you can't change that, so what's the next best thing to do? Make him struggle emotionally when moving to Metropolis.

I know I had a lot of emotional issues when I first moved away from my small town to the big city. For the first time I was alone. No friends or family. Big scary city.

It all comes down to everyone's personal preference for the character obviously, but I know Superman has never had anything about him that I could really relate to. Now, that doesn't really mean I want him to be 'emo' or anything, but I wouldn't mind seeing his early development in life filled with problems. This is why I was drawn to Smallville initially.

If anything, at least it's not canon. At least you have that.


If anything, I honestly think this is testing the waters for something else.

Why should that matter? They're not changing "your" Superman. Just making another version that's more approachable. Doesn't DC have tons of Superman running around their Earth-#Whatever anyway?
Yep.
