After the season finale where RM Corp found a way to make thinking Bots, I was hoping for a continuation of the story where Paradim learned the hard way the downside of Bots that can say, "No."

@  Rycochet : (28 September 2016 - 09:40 AM)

I liked Phantom 2040 more.

@  Blues : (27 September 2016 - 05:08 PM)

I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

Supposedly.

After he finishes his eight-year drag on the Avengers franchise, Brian Michael Bendis may be getting the keys to the X-Men corner of the universe.

So enjoy Wolverine and the X-Men, X-Factor, and whatever else is fun and quirky while you can. They might not be around after this year.

On the plus side, Avengers will finally be free.

Let's see...Spider-Woman will be retroactively be found to have an X-Gene.

Luke Cage's baby will turn out to be a mutant, facilitating Cage and Jessica Jones to move in with the X-Men.

Magneto will split off from the X-Men again, and instead of forming a new Brotherhood, will form a new Dark X-Men.

Ms. Marvel will frequently guest-star.

Everyone will begin speaking like a twelve year old girl. The conversations they have will last an entire issue.

What else?

Didn't they already make Jessica Drew a mutant? I mean I guess she's different from an x-gene mutant, but that's kinda splitting hairs. They still call Namor a mutant after all.

As long as it gets him away from the Avengers franchise. I don't read most xbooks anyway.

I just miss the days when heroes had big exciting adventures ful of wonder and epic scale, when they did fun stuff and fought colorful supervillians in costumes. The day Bendis leaves will be one step closer to the Avengers being the type of comic I want to read again.


-ZacWilliam, if the Avengers never have another issue long, semi-depresive conversation in their living room, have their house/skyscraper/mythical city blown up, or fight other heroes over political differences, an army of generic sci-fi ish government/semi-government troops, or semi-villians who mostly wear normal clothes and want to talk about how the Avengers are the real villians ever again it will be TOO SOON.

There is nothing official...just Rich trying to break a story. He did break the New 52 story and Before Watchmen though, I saw a rumour that it is Uncanny X-Men that Bendis will be taking over, which I'm fine with.

Well he is a human Atlatean hybrid which is a type of human mutant. Not much different then Franklin being a mutant by being the offspring of Reed and Sue.

Actually, no. Namor is a mutant becasue of those tiny wings on his ankles that give him the power of flight. Seriously. They're from the x-gene and what make him a mutant.


-ZacWilliam, it has nothing to do with his hybrid human atlantian mix.

God, bendis is such a hack. He's a big reason why I havent been reading anything from marvel or dc lately. Let him write some solo, noir-ish characters. Dude just doesn't know how to write anything else.

Why would Bendis be a big reason why you're not reading from BOTH companies? I could understand Marvel...but he doesn't write for DC icon-hotrod.gif He's not a hack. He just gets complacent on books that he has had a long run on. Such as both Avengers books. His work on Ultimate Comics Spider-Man has been really good so far, better than I expected.

Because his writing style has become extremely popular. It seems like both companies prefer writers that write in that obnoxious, overly talky style. He's also one of the first writers, to my knowledge, to start "writing for the trade", which has also become the norm.

Yeah Geoff Johns is right up there with him in that regard. I used to be a much bigger Bendis fan than I am now. I don't think though he's a better choice than the two main writers they have writing X-Men right now....although like I said, I would be fine with him taking over Uncanny X-Men, as that book has just been plain boring.

Bendis sort of addresses the rumour and boasts that what he's doing after AVX is so much more...still not spilling the beans. I'm guessing they're waiting for the next major con to divulge this information.
