*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

so the weekend of SDCC, the TSA banned COMIC BOOKS from check-in luggage. http://lechicgeek.bo...ium=LCG FB Page

LEAKER DROPS POWER OF THE PRIMES BOMBSHELL! Shrapnel: "No, Bombshell's the other guy"

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 11:34 AM)

...did RichardT and Nevermore just accidentally do a Cybertron Enquirer gag?

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Holy cow.

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

Yo, when Team Skull meets you, they don't even greet you!

Once more, I have returned. w00t.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 02:01 PM)

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (23 July 2017 - 09:46 AM)

And dealing with me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 08:47 AM)

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

@  unluckiness : (23 July 2017 - 07:52 AM)

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 06:44 AM)

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

Yeah, the initial issues of Mighty Thor were pretty bad but Aaron finally got back in the groove. The Shi'ar/Asgard was pretty awesome.

I'm actually looking forward to Thor 700.

Sorry for pretty much only coming into Marvel threads to rant about symbiotes, but I'm doing it again.


During the Spider-man panel Jason Latour answered a question about Gwenom.


Q:How is the Gwenom symbiote different from the Marvel Universe symbiote?


A: Latour says that he always liked Venom but hated how random parts of his origin are. So the Gwenom symbiote is tied closer to Spider-Gwen's origins regarding the spider that bit her.



I feel like that's the attitude people have about the symbiote when they're adapting it to other universes/media maybe 90% if the time.

I get where they're coming from with that, but I don't think it really needs to be as complicated as they say it is.


The Venom symbiote is an alien that's like a furry, but for Spider-man. A furry that's a sentient fursuit that needs other people to wear them.

And once they get to earth they start a whole family of these webbys that each have their own take on their dad/grandad's spidersona.



There was also more Venomverse talk from Bunn about how Eddie Brock is the best Venom, yuck, but at least they also mentioned Flash and Andi.

Astonishing X-Men was really good. That's my team right there.



I was so confused by the use of Angel / Archangel in this...I thought they were separate beings...wasn't Archangel just used in one of the other X-books? is this another case of one hand not knowing what the other is doing, like with the Phoenix? sigh



Who are you to change this world? Silly boy!

Yeah, you're probably thinking about the time-travelling younger Angel that's ACTUALLY from another dimension, but can't seem to return home.  He sometimes has flaming wings because he looked into a magic space mirror called the Black Vortex, trying to avert himself from his "future-self's" destiny.  But, that could be wearing off at some point.


"Our" Angel/Archangel is actually...well, when he originally became Archangel, trying to cure his mutant condition, Apocalypse also infected him with something else so that he effectively becomes the next Apocalypse if Apocalypse ever died***.   Which, I guess he did*, so Archangel became a villain for a while, but was eventually killed and resurrected without any memories.  BUT, his alternate Archangel personality eventually resurfaced.  He had it split off by Apocalypse cultists, which turned that part of him into an army of ArchAngels, and formed a cult until both "purified" Angel and the new Archangels merged back into one another and became yet another different Archangel and...maybe it's just easier to say he's basically a werewolf now.  Or, like, a WereArchangel or whatever.



*Apocalypse got resurrected**, but then the Celestials took him to fight in some war and we never saw him again  NOR did we ever see this war.  But he got cloned, X-Force(a black ops X-Men team) killed the clone, but one of the members made a different clone for himself to see how nature/nurture worked on a being like Apocalypse. This is when this whole "Dark Archangel" thing started.  That kid, now calling himself Genesis, or Evan to his friends, joined Wolverine's Jean Grey School, but was turned evil in Axis, but got better, and ended up joining the other Younger/Time Traveling/Alternate X-men on a road trip.


**Apocalyspe DID die, but WAY before this whole Dark ArchAngel thing, trying to use "The Twelve", who were mutants that were prophesied to be able to kill Apocalypse, but were actually just a LONG term gambit to make a super-weapon by Apocalypse. (Ironic that).  He ended up possessing Cyclops, but was eventually exorcised by Jean Grey and assumed killed once and for all.


***Just as a side note, Apocalypse is now just one of a long line of people "chosen" by the Celestials to "help along" natural evolution.



*Looks over what he just wrote*


Yeah, I think that's mostly accurate.  X-Men comics: You almost need a doctorate to follow 'em!
