My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

So the first couple issues are out and it's pretty great so far. Nick Spencer finally does something awesome with Maria Hill and manages to work in all three Captain Americas for his 75th anniversary/and also big feature film.

 

Spencer also manages to work in The Beyonders from Hickman's Avengers run and we get the foundations of the upcoming Thunderbolts book as well.

 

Discuss!

by the first couple of issues do you mean welcome to pleasent hill and assault on pleasent hill?

 

Assult on pleasent hill 1 was a great read for me. considering a lot of dialogue - it was a great morality issue.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Yeah, Welcome and Assault.

 

I also love the wordplay. Pleasant Hill makes Maria Hill Pleasant.

I was surprised that things kicked off so quickly Alpha. I'm still not sure this is a terribly interesting story, but there's a lot of character stuff here that I enjoy and having been around through the debut of the original Thunderbolts, I'm really digging seeing the team resurface after the book's recent rest.

So this just ended with some stuff spinning out of it:

 

Maria Hill is on probation and probably won't be Director of SHIELD for much longer

Kobik the Child Cosmic Cube has become friends with Bucky and along with most of the original Thunderbolts escaping Pleasant Hill, will form the new team.

Steve Rogers is young again and Sam suggested they share the mantle, inspired by there being two Spider-Men.

Steve offers Rick Jones (who kickstarted this whole storyline by leaking that Maria Hill has been using Cosmic Cube fragments) a job. Possibly his and Sam's Oracle? Or maybe the new Director of SHIELD?

I skipped straight from the Alpha to the Omega and I don't feel I missed much. I was keen to read this when I heard that we were getting a new Quasar. Gruenwald's Quasar is one of my favourite books and I'm happy to see Wendell back and training someone up.

Still keen for more Thunderbolts too.

This, uh, this didn't really turn out to be much of a STORY, did it? The first two issues were a great kick-off, but it turns out they weren't a kick-off TO anything - the last issue was just a clip-show collection whose primary concern was setting up new books, rather than actually being a story in and of itself.

Very underwhelmed by how the new Quasar debuted.  About as interesting as someone joining a pickup raid group on an MMO.

No big splash page intro, no explanation of who Quasar or Wendell Vaughan is or what the quantum bands or are **who this woman is**... I assume she's been floating around in Spencer Cap run? Cause we all knew this story was to facilitate de-ageing Cap, but in the end-up it's basically turned out that - and instituting the new Thunderbolts - has been ALL it's been designed to do, and that didn't even happen IN the event book.

Will Marvel do a Graphic Novel collection of an important event series featuring a bunch of their major characters from a current theatrical blockbuster, you mean?

What happened to the Red Skull?  In Uncanny Avengers #6 he was shown hiding out in the basement of the old Avengers Mansion and now here he is in Pleasant Hill.  What happened?  How did he go from one place to another in a short amount of time.
