Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

And checking: those monitors are REALLY expensive.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 October 2019 - 09:30 AM)

Eh, I'm happy with multiple 1080's personally.

@  Benbot : (03 October 2019 - 07:21 PM)

Everyone needs a 1440 monitor. Just set up my new battle station and I never knew how much I was missing!

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

wasn't just any murder...her friends and her are on a hunting trip and come across 2 guys burying a body...they then proceed to brutally murder her friends, she escapes and is left all mentally messed up and becomes completely agoraphobic as well as just generally afraid that the killers will eventually find her. 

 

Thats why The Ring Of Volthoom (aka the Power Ring from Earth-3) chooses her....because she is utterly fearful. blah blah blah fast forward she FINALLY overcomes her "Great Fear", that ring goes bye bye and a real GL ring chooses her...making her Green Lantern of sector 2814.6. Eventually her and Simon are forced to share a single power battery so that they will become partners and learn to work together.

 

Shes like Kyle, in that shes a very "Human" GL. John, Guy, Hal...theyre all theses big, strong, smart, rage-y, HERO types...Jess and Simon are written much more Flawed and Down To Earth...thats one of the reasons i really like Her, and to a slightly lesser extent Him (but he does have one of the best designed GL costumes ever, Coming in just below the Justice League 3000 costume for me.)

 

TLl;DR: Yeah, shes got a pretty messed up origin story in the comics as well as the animated film. Even more gruesome in the books. =]

Uh, who's Simon?

Ah, I do like that idea that the Crime Syndicate Power Ring picked her because she has great fear. And it makes sense that when she overcame it, she became a full fledged Green Lantern.

Did she ever find the killers and avenge her friends? Who the hex wrote her messed up origin too? Peter Tomasi? Geoff Johns?

Simon Baz was another new GL that came around the same time. If I remember right hes a Muslim from Detroit who was chosen by Sinestro to replace him as a GL after his brief relapse as one. He was in a bad place at the time and of course being Muslim was being held in prison as a terrorist as the ring came to him. Hes also known for being the Lantern toting an actual gun with him

Later on him and Jessica being the Rookie Lanterns have their separate power batteries fused into one by Hal to get them used to working together as a team

Nice to see WW finally getting another solo movie. It's long overdue.

 

Also looking forward to Red Son after that.

I really wish they'd give up on their Nu52 esque designs and inject a little more colour into their characters. I've never really liked thst look for WW.

Still, it is good to her getting another starring role.

I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting to see Wonder Woman's origin portrayed yet again, but that is a nice big collection of her rogue's gallery. And all costumed Man's World baddies instead of gods, a nice change of pace.

Just watched Hush. Was really disappointed

Spoiler

 

It's a good movie and I know doing a straight adaption would spoil everything but that was something I feel shouldn't have changed. I mean with one of the earlier adaptions already coming out before hand it kinda made one thing a tad harder to try from the original story, but changing this one bit makes Hush a one off villain in this animated universe unless they pull a massive retcon heel turn.
