Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

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.

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.
