@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

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.
