Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Sooooo buying these. It's hard to believe they aren't an April Fools joke but the calendar say no so, I am there.

That Jonny Quest book looks absolutely amazing. Like getting the pan-Sunbow continuity in Comic form, but maybe better.

And while the design is intentionally aping a real life look I kinda despise I have to admit modern Shaggy shifting from hippie to hipster is pretty inspired updating.


-ZacWilliam, yes they're copying Archie hard but if it gets me this Jonny Quest book damn... copy away.

Shaggy as hipster is pretty funny and Fred from prep to douche-bro works too. But they've turned Velma into some gnome and Daphne into what? Lara Croft? I think a more correct depiction of her character-trope would be Kardashian-esque.

When I look at them And think it basically breaks down to:

The Flintstones redesign is a cute one image joke that unless reports surface down the road of the writing being amazing I am happy leaving as a one image joke and not buying.

Wacky Racers I never really watched as a kid so have no big nostalgia for. The Mad Max twist is interesting enough that I may look at the first issue but it would have to be super fun to snag me.

Scooby Doo's cover art is terrible early-Image-y looking junk. But the reinvention is an interesting enough idea and seems extreme enough that I'll almost certainly buy the first issue to see how it is. How it is determines if I ever buy #2.

Future Quest looks like everything I want in a comic EVER. It is must buy and my excitement over that is what pretty much powered all my enthusiasm in the first post. If the book comes even close to the level of its concept I will buy all of them ever.

 I'd have been totally down for an individual Space Ghost and Johnny Quest book. But what I'm seeing here feels like its completely missed the mark in a "Gritty fanfic written in middle school" kind of way.

Daphne has been on a slow and steadily progressing push in that direction since "Zombie Island" back in 1998, arguably since "13 Ghosts" back in 1985.

The team on Future Quest previously did a run of Flash Gordon I've seen get a LOT of praise.

Scooby Apocalypse and Flintstones look dull and uninspired as rocks; Future Quest looks really fun, especially with that Darwyn Cooke art; and Wacky Raceland looks... well, it depends how seriously it takes itself. If it's at all serious, then it'll crash and burn harder than any of the vehicles in Fury Road did, but if it goes full-on daft parody then I think it could be magnificent.

Uh... wow.

 

I mean, these may well be terrible, although yeah -- some great creators. 

 

One does have to wonder what the hook is going to be for the Flintstones. And although I will certainly check out the first issue, I think I'm suffering from Scooby Doo Reinvention Fatigue.

 

But the rest is pretty interesting. These are all characters I love, but it's hard to maintain interest in the sort of TV-tie-in fluff that you'd normally see them published in. I'm thrilled to see DC doing something novel with this library of properties. 

 

Just imagine where this line could go in the future. Just imagine.
