I'm genuinely amused/impressed, even if it wasn't intentional.

@  Benbot : (01 March 2017 - 02:38 PM)

That's a lot of shouting

@  MEDdMI : (01 March 2017 - 02:37 PM)

Wow, Bass, your post took up the entire Shoutbox exactly without being over/under a line.

@  ShadowMan024 : (01 March 2017 - 02:36 PM)

The best Marvel issue is, was, and always will be Decepticon Graffiti. The Battlechargers are awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (01 March 2017 - 02:27 PM)

ReGeneration was criticised for being too slow paced and drawn out way too long, yet the Decepticon leaders are introduced and dispatched just to tick the box that they made an appearance. I also preferred the single stand alone stories from the original Marvel comics instead of each issue having like four different plots running through it, which didn't make for satisfying reading IMO. If a writer is writing for a trade, don't release individual issues. I also thought the artwork was poor - before, the Marvel comics tried to have the best artwork they could at the time, whereas now they were intentionally limiting themselves to appear "retro", and it shows. The pacing was the worst though, some characters just stand around doing nothing to progress their part of the story, like Shockwave's segments. In contrast, compare any six consecutive issues from the Marvel comics and a whole lot more happens than in RG1. Furman also fell into his pattern of wasting space world building and pointless scenes when the story had to end at #100.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 02:10 PM)

Even then, Furman's material never really had a huge toy-push aspect to it, other than "here's new character!"

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Considering it was a wrap-up for a story whose toyline had ended anyway, I feel like it worked out well enough. I mean, the last major iteration did play an important part in things.

@  Steevy Maximus : (01 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

New comics didn't need to shill any toys at all...so there wasn't any push to do weird and different things.

@  Steevy Maximus : (01 March 2017 - 02:03 PM)

The big problem is that stuff like the old comics were produced under the idea of shilling toys...which ultimately resulted in a lot of the weirdness people remember

@  Rycochet : (01 March 2017 - 02:01 PM)

He was hired to write an exercise in nostalgia and that's what he produced.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 01:38 PM)

Speaking of Marvel, finally read the rest of ReGeneration One, thanks to a Comixology sale. I... don't understand the hate.

@  lastmaximal : (28 February 2017 - 09:09 PM)

Works for some, not all. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Trademark

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Yeah, making it "Autobot X" seems to be their way of getting around many of those issues with overly generic terms

@  Rycochet : (28 February 2017 - 08:41 PM)

Hasbro would just call the toys Marvel's Thunderstrike or Autobot/Decepticon Thunderstrike.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 08:19 PM)

D.C. owns Bumblebee and they've made toys of her, so if a Mattel licensee can share names with a TF...

@  Telly : (28 February 2017 - 07:42 PM)

doesnt marvel own that? i know theyve got the comic character, not sure about the name for toys though. there ever been a thunderstrike figure? would it even be in the same area as a tf name?

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:38 PM)

You know, "Thunderstrike" would actually be a pretty kickass TF name! Surprised it's never been used!

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:27 PM)

Thunderstruck.

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 07:25 PM)

How about Thunderblust? http://gatherer.wiza...iverseid=157411

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:23 PM)

Or Shockburninator, who turns into a satellite and a dragon.

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 07:22 PM)

Burninationblastatron

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:22 PM)

It's Thunderblast, but she turns into a wingaling dragon instead of "transforming" into a boat.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:22 PM)

Thunderburninator.

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 07:20 PM)

You need to get "blast" in there somewhere

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 11:26 AM)

THATCH-ROOF COTTAGEEEEEEEEES

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 February 2017 - 03:06 AM)

Only if the packaging looks like a thatch-roofed cottage.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 09:27 PM)

They need to make a dragonbot named "Burninatron."

@  BlackMax : (27 February 2017 - 09:15 PM)

I find upcoming Last Knght's Steelbane sexy. A very Skyrim name for a giant robot who is also a dragon? Be still my heart.

@  MEDdMI : (27 February 2017 - 06:24 PM)

I never found most Hollywood heartthrobs sexy, even if they were around my age. I think I knew even back then that the char they play doesn't reflect how the actor really looks/behaves.

@  Rycochet : (27 February 2017 - 06:11 PM)

Her acting makes her come across as a living Pat Lee illustration.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:27 PM)

No. No, you're not.

@  Bass X0 : (27 February 2017 - 01:26 PM)

And am I the only straight male Transformers fan who never found Megan Fox attractive?

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:21 PM)

Especially since she's the same age as my parents.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:19 PM)

It's like I instinctually knew that by the time I watched the movies, it'd be weird since IRL she was way older than me.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:18 PM)

Am I, like, the only straight male Star Wars fan who never had a thing for Leia?

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 12:34 AM)

I mean, I knew it was coming, but just hearing Carrie say "May the Force be with you" hurt :(

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

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.

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.

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.

All I can hope for is they have enough sense to finally bring Rebel into the main Marvel Universe, but I'm not holding my breath on that front. I've been banging that drum for years.

That's the explanation that's been given to me, but I either lack that issue or it's just implied...and besides I never liked it as a explanation anyway.

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.
