What you're describing is more an "homage" than plagiarism, really. I'm assuming you would be using different characters. It's basically like all the comic covers that homage the death of Supergirl cover from Crisis on Infinite Earths...but with different characters. It's not plagiarism, it's a reference. But if several artists have a memorable layout and are all using it, chances are it actually is referencing something memorably original.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Would that still qualify as plagiarism? After all, it could be argued that what I've recreated isn't that original to begin with since several other people have supposedly had the same general idependently from each other.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:54 PM)

And I were then to create a new image, not traced but maybe "swiped", except I wouldn't copy a specific source image, but merely recreate the basic pose and perspective shared between all of them...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:52 PM)

*deleted*

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:49 PM)

And out of sheer coincidence, they all feature very similar ideas, concepts, poses and/or perspectives, supposedly with none of the original creators having copied from one of the others...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:47 PM)

Assuming I were to find not one but two, three, four or even more source images, all of them by different artists, or by different photographers depicting different models...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:45 PM)

Just out of curiosity, a question regarding the concept of plagiarism:

I reject your canon and substitute my own

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

Here's something you probably didn't expect heading into the long weekend: Friday evening, People published a report that Patrick Warburton will return to "The Tick," in a revival set to air on Amazon's streaming video service.

According to People's unnamed source, Warburton "recently inked a deal with Amazon and Sony" to reprise the role, with "Tick" creator Ben Edlund on board to produce and write. Multiple outlets have picked up on this story online, all sourcing back to the People report and many expressing skepticism given the unlikely nature of the claim. Warburton's 12-years-later return to "The Tick" has yet to be confirmed or denied by Amazon or Sony -- or by Warburton or Edlund themselves.

Warburton played "The Tick" on the Fox live-action series based on the character, which ran for nine episodes in the 2001-2002 season. The live-action "Tick" followed the beloved Fox Kids cartoon that ran from 1994 to 1996, and the "Tick" comic book series the kicked off the franchise in 1988.

"The Tick" was not a hit on Fox, but received positive reviews for its humorous take on superhero life. Along with Warburton as The Tick, the show also starred David Burke as Arthur, Liz Vassey as Captain Liberty and Nestor Carbonell -- who later appeared in both "Lost" and "The Dark Knight" -- as Batmanuel. "Men in Black" director Barry Sonnenfeld and "Seinfeld" writer Larry Charles served as executive producers, with Sonnenfeld directing the pilot.

In 2009, Warburton discussed the possibility of returning to the role in an interview with CBR News.

"I'm sure the character will definitely be coming back," Warburton said. "I don’t know if I'll be the lucky guy, but I'd love to be the guy. I wish Barry'd make the movie right now, you know? And let me do it. But if they ever make 'The Tick' movie, who knows who will get to play The Tick? But it probably ain’t going to get to be me, that’s the reality."

At press time, neither Warburton or Edlund have publicly acknowledged the report, but writer Benito Cereno -- who has authored much of New England Comics' recent "Tick" comic book material -- shared the article on his Tumblr, along with a simple "Hmmmmmmm."

Keeping reading CBR for the latest.

 

This is great news as he was always the perfect casting for The Tick. Now give him some villains to deal with and this show will be truly astounding.

Yeah, I think part of what killed the orginal LA series was the lack of any villains or super-heroics. Even a little could probably help this.

I'd rather have a return of the animated Tick, but I think the live-action series was underrated and too-quickly dismissed by fans of the cartoon.  While the cartoon was largely about heroes fighting villains, the live-action show focussed on the day-to-day lives of the heroes.  They're different, but both are very good and funny.

If it happens I hope they get the rest of the cast to come back, too, not just Warburton.

Oh, my gosh.  It's been 12 years?

 

I liked the show for what it is.  I crave more of the cartoon more than I crave more of the live action show.  But they were really intentional about not having the villains because it was supposed to be like Seinfeld.  They are superheroes living the superhero lifestyle.  Fighting evil is just what they do some of the time.  I enjoyed that.  I think it would look goofy really quickly if they started having a lot of fight scenes.  That stuff plays a lot better on a cartoon or more serious live-action.

 

I'll be watching, of course.

Egads that's keen. Its been a bit since I've seen the series but I recall there being at least one villain, even if he is not battled directly.

I agree with everyone about the need of supervillains.  Compared to the cartoon, the live action series was more like a situation comedy.

Amazing show which was WAY before its time. I'd think it'd be a hit now.

In my head-canon, the live action TICK and Dr Horrible are in the same universe.
