nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 05:28 PM)

And a better headsculpt.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

@  Sean Whitmore : (23 June 2017 - 03:31 PM)

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Its a really great show.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 06:16 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

Wow, that was supposed to :shout" hours ago...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

The beauty of this set up is they can "secret wars" anyone back whenever they want, for years to come. Need 616 Wolverine back? Oh he showed up in battlworld but Doom, or Magneeto or someone captured him and put him in stasis, and he just now escaped.

Squadron Supreme is happening! We've got Dr. Spectrum from the Great Society, Supreme Power's Nighthawk, New Universe's Blur, Thundra, and Hickman's Hyperion.

 

There's a character I don't recognize offhand but it could be Sif?

 

EDIT: It could be Battleworld Zarda. Hmm.

The post-SW Hulk has been...well, not revealed, but guessed, with a pretty high probability of accuracy. I suppose it was sort of obvious once you know Greg Pak is writing it, but I didn't find that out till just now.

 

It's a shame, as I was really enjoying Gerry Duggan's "Doc Green" angle, and Waid's series before that. Pak's work is wildly uneven, and his previous Hulk run is a perfect example of that. "Planet Hulk" was great, but the stuff after he left the planet was pretty dire.

I love Amadeus Cho.  He's one of my favorite Marvel characters.  I really, really, don't want to read Totally Awesome Hulk Cho.  Prince of Power was already pushing it, and I was enjoying the Doc Green take.

 

I'm weird with Pak's Hulk though.  My favorite stuff was the bit with Olivetti exploring Banner as the danger kept in check by Hulk.

On the heels of the Ant-Man series ending due to Secret Wars shenanigans, the relaunch was inevitable given the movie coming out.

 

http://www.latimes.c...0625-story.html

 

Nick Spencer will continue his run with Scott Lang's company expanding from just him and Grizzly to Porcupine, the female Beetle from Spencer's spectacular Superior Foes of Spider-Man, and WHIRLWIND.

 

It sounds great so far and I love Superior Foes so Beetle joining is so awesome.

Good to know that Ant-Man will have a soft reboot, keeping the same overall feel. Love the current run, and I'm liking more and more the independent B-Lister comics like this, Silver Surfer, Hawkeye, and Z-Lister in Howard the Duck's case. They don't run necessarily concurrent with the main Universe, but they're still considered part of it. In a "don't think too hard" way.

What exactly is going on with Venom?

The writing isn't always what I want, but I feel like whoever has been deciding what to do with Venom is sharing brain space with me or something.

 

Venom(No host given, but probably Flash?) having Spaceknight-related adventures? Where do I sign up?

Now, if only they could remember Mania existed.(Please don't kill her so Eddie can also be Venom.)

The image is from Guardians of The Galaxy. I liked his stint with the Guardians, and it's an overall interesting concept to have the Symbiote back in space. Maybe some old foes/allies we didn't know existed showing up? Giving him his own story, far away from Spider-Man really expands the character in my opinion.


Yep.

Having a solo title makes me hope they take some time to explore the symbiote-host relationship some more.

I really liked stuff from the end of the last Venom solo series and the issues of Superior Spider-man he showed up in.

 

It looks like it is being written by the guy writing Silk. Which I haven't read yet, but I've heard good things about, so that gives me some hope.

 

 

Definitely looks like Flash-Venom to me in that pic.

Yeah, sorry, probably should have pointed out that the article is using old art.

I was kind of let down by his time with the Guardians so far. I haven't read every issue, but it felt like for most of it he was either absent or incredibly inconsequential. Except for his introduction, and the planet of the symbiotes arc.

 

I thought he was handled better in Red Hulk's Thunderbolts, and I wasn't a huge fan of that book.

WARREN ELLIS IS WRITING A KARNAK BOOK.

 

I'm sold.

 

More X-Men stuff with All-New X-Men continuing sans Jean but plus one VW Camper van.

 

Jeff Lemire and Humberto Ramos with Extraordinary X-Men with Old Man Logan, Young Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Magik and Iceman. This gives me 90's X-Men Gold Team flashbacks with most of the members.

 

Cullen Bunn and...ugh...Greg Land relaunch Uncanny X-Men with Magneto, Sabretooth, Psylocke, Mystique and Fantomex. Looks like Uncanny will be our new X-Force.

 

Uncanny Avengers (by Gerry Dugan and Ryan Stegman) on the other hand adds Inhumans to the team. We get Old Man Steve Rogers, Human Torch, Rogue, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Quicksilver, Doctor Voodoo and most likely a couple Inhumans.
