@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

So Marvel is going to be spilling the beans on their upcoming, post-Secret Wars relaunch in an "All-New, All-Different Marvel Previews" print magazine set to arrive in comic shops on July 1, but in the meantime they've been releasing info and promos.  The biggest thing they've emphasized is that it is not a reboot.

 

So far they've put out some images of prominent characters from the relaunch  The first is fairly predictable, and seems to be building off the pre-Secret Wars status quo

5571d408cc355.jpg

(Left to Right: Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man, Vision, Ultimate Spider-Man, Coulson, Spider-Woman, Black Panther, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Steve Rogers (Still Old), Iron Man, new Thor, Ant-Man, Ms. Marvel and Red Wolf.)

 

The Second is a LOT more interesting

5571d44e88fbe.jpg

(Left to Right: Dr. Sprectrum (Last surviving member of the Justice League analog known as the Great Society), Rocket Raccoon, Hyperion (likely the Hyperion from Hickman's Avengers run), Daredevil, Dr. Strange (Battle Axe!!), Citizen V (Most known for being Baron Zemo's secret identity when he created the Thunderbolts), the Thing (sporting Guardians of the Galaxy duds), Karnak (of the Inhumans; Not Doom), Inferno (from the recent Inhumans ongoing), Iron Man again, Medusa, Wolverine (X-23), Star-Lord and Old Man Logan.

 

Also they recently spilled the beans about the new Invincible Iron Man; it'll be written by Bendis and drawn by Marquez, and the person taking up the armor will be

Spoiler

More updates to come, including a new Hulk and more about the mutants.

What's Rocket holding in his had? Is it censored, or is it supposed to look like that?

 

Wolverine is cool, but I'm eager to see more new stuff, or confirmation that more obscure characters I care about are still around.

They're definitely referencing the "incoming lewd gesture alert" from the movie.

I love that they're keeping Hyperion. He was one of my favorite Hickvengers characters.

 

I hope they keep Tamara/Captain Universe and the New Universe kids, too.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Bendis on IM feels like a step backwards to me, I feel like he doesn't need to be that close to the Avengers again. But I love the new armour design. Hope Tony isn't too RDJ, I'm over that take.

My biggest hope from the teasers so far is that we get something great for poor Black Panther. And that we still have Soule-led Inhumans.

He's probably going to be apart of the "team of hereos from dead universes" that was mentioned, along with Dr. Spectrum and possibly Miles Morales.

I'm not loving that armor.  It looks like a teenager is going to come out of it.  It has very "teen" proportions.  So is everyone else (the old version of these characters) going to be dead?  Is this Marvel's New 52?

All the characters here who've had someone else take up their title (Cap, Thor, etc.) had that transition well before Secret Wars, except for Wolverine who was just killed off without a new Wolverine showing up and who is now standing right there so we know he's still around. If anything the first image here is emphasising how the older characters will still be around alongside the newer ones.

That's what happened, Franklin merged the three Tonys (classic, Teen, and HR) into one when he brought the heroes back to life. Tony once commented that he had three distinct sets of memories of himself growing up, but that's as far as it ever went. And even that was buried in a backup story in an Avengers annual by Kurt Busiek.
