Thankfully, Dracula's castle didn't escape the eclipse this time.

@  Nevermore : (21 August 2017 - 09:41 PM)

In retaliation, President Trump threatens to nuke the moon.

@  Nevermore : (21 August 2017 - 09:40 PM)

This just in: ISIS claims responsibility for the eclipse.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Which left like a hundred disappointed middle schoolers.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Where I'm located got 95% eclipse. Which lacked a worthwhile climax. I really should have driven into it, but I planned on going to my science teacher wife's school thing that got cancelled last minute.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 August 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I was considering trying to get the day off for it and driving down south to the US far enough that I could see the total eclipse, but after looking into it it seems like there's another total eclipse coming up in 2024 where the totality will be visible just 45 minutes south-west of me, so I figure I'll wait it out

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 03:30 PM)

don't worry, social media didn't.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2017 - 02:59 PM)

shoot... I forgot all about the eclipse.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 August 2017 - 02:36 PM)

lewd

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 01:30 PM)

i wanted a peek at the sun's peak too.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

Just caught a peak of the 'bitten' sun. COOL!!

@  Noideaforaname : (21 August 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I got my cereal box eclipse viewer ready. Hopefully these clouds part...

@  Dracula : (21 August 2017 - 09:44 AM)

well I'm supposed to be permanently sealed in a dimensional rift today so I've gotta stay on guard

"Would have been?" Isn't he still on the Batgirl thing?

@  unluckiness : (21 August 2017 - 07:46 AM)

It probably wouldn't be worse but it sure would have been really samey to everything else he's done.

@  Paladin : (21 August 2017 - 06:42 AM)

i am still not convinced he could do a worse job with Batgirl than Bruce Timm already did.

@  Pennpenn : (21 August 2017 - 03:42 AM)

The thing to remember about Madman is that they are often more enthusiastic than they are reliable.

Yeah, I'm pretty surprised.

The what now?

@  2017 : (20 August 2017 - 09:39 PM)

This news about Joss Whedon sure was a thing to wake up to.

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2017 - 06:59 PM)

To back up to the original question about Scramble City's existence in regards to the English-language cartoon continuity, the pack-in comic that came with the Australian DVD boxed set released by Madman did feature a timeline of events that included a point in history titles "Scramble City", so that comic may at least want us to "pretend" that Scramble City happened in the cartoon continuity. But then again, that same comic also used the Marvel Comics' asteroid crisis as the true reason for the Ark's launch, and included the Beast Wars as being unambiguously part of this timeline, so make of that comic's timeline what you will.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:16 AM)

And unlike Takara's JG1 that has been steadily evolving and passing itself down from writer to writer in more-or-less smooth transition, anyone going back now to Hasbro's G1 does feel a bit more like changing history rather than reviving or continuing it.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Editors at Fun Pub didn't feel it was right to try to "fix" or otherwise change or alter other writers' works. Which is why everything Fun Pub-written became its own stream (Animated was written by the same creative team as the show, so it's one of the very few stories still set in its original continuity). So rather than write words into the original creative team's mouths, Wings only sought to offer one possible solution to the Constructicons weirdness.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2017 - 08:24 PM)

Too bad there weren't that many Wings stories. On the other hand, JG1 is still continuing with stories!

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Wings is obviously not cartoon continuity, but is heavily indebted to it.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Basically what my original point was that continuities based on the original cartoon but not actually a part of it have used what Pennpenn originally said.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:42 PM)

I get what you mean, but the wording is awful. It's not possible for Wings to "alter" or "destroy" something it was never part of, nor really interacted with.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:40 PM)

It didn't "alter the existing continuity". It's an entirely new one that left the cartoon's continuity exactly as it ever was.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 05:24 PM)

didn't it take the original cartoon continuity but change parts of it to make a new continuity? i said i'd have preferred it stayed within the original cartoon continuity instead of altering the existing continuity. thats what i would have done. stories would have been written around the existing stories.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 04:24 PM)

Wings can't "destroy it even further" when it was never the cartoon continuity in the first place.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:57 PM)

The problem is that it isn't really fixable without redoing it from the ground up. Or going into insane retcons and rewrites, which A) is about the same thing, and B) is kinda Takara's thing.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 03:22 PM)

I find its better to fix a broken continuity than to destroy it even further.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:06 PM)

The cartoon couldn't even stay consistent with the cartoon, so why worry when something else can't, either?

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I never connected with the whole "Wings is similar to the cartoon continuity but several things are different" thing they had going on. they should really have done it so that it stayed in continuity with the cartoon but focused on the off-screen events prior, during and after the cartoon stories.

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Not like it's ever relevant anyway.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 10:00 AM)

I mean, it doesn't make sense otherwise, regardless of how official particular fiction is.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 09:57 AM)

Wings is officially not really cartoon continuity, though.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 09:55 AM)

@Pennpenn: There is some fiction that does actually use the whole "they were rebuilt on Earth" explanation. The Fun Pub Wings stuff comes to mind.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 08:36 AM)

Oh absolutely

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 05:00 AM)

point is, the cartoon's continuity was hugged to begin with.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 03:53 AM)

My brain usually parses that as "Constructicons built him on contract or something so weren't evil then, and Megatron meant rebuilt in Heavy Metal War". Yeah it's a stretch, but whatever

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 03:16 AM)

Just like the evil constructicons built Megatron then turned good and then were robosmashed back to evil and then somehow built on Earth.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 August 2017 - 06:28 PM)

Though to be fair, Japanese continuity itself did not reconcile how Dinosaurer was destroyed in the 1980s and rebuilt in 2010 until the Unite Warriors manga of 2017.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (18 August 2017 - 05:45 PM)

Also, Scramble City has Trypticon in existence while the English version had Trypticon built in 2005 in season 3.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 August 2017 - 04:15 PM)

English and Japanese dubs of the cartoon are officially different continuities from each other, so...

@  Bass X0 : (18 August 2017 - 04:07 PM)

Is Scramble City canon or in continuity with the U.S. 80s Transformers cartoon despite not being dubbed?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Make it a link instead of just pasting the URL.

@  Evac : (18 August 2017 - 02:56 PM)

If I could post youtube links without them becoming videos in the box, I'd link to the "parrot singing 'Let The Bodies Hit The Floor'" video.

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.
