Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

We open on... A MURDER.


This whole issue is full of things like that. It seemed a bit chaotic at first (both in writing and art), but I think these were intentional to heighten the mystery. Right from the beginning I felt like I was being thrust into the middle of things, and I just have to know what's going on!


A sudden conspiracy with the Badgeless seemed a bit questionable, since they were never a big deal before, but as the issue went on I realized that this is exactly what they needed to BE a big deal. Knowing that they use armor and holorgams now, who else is behind those helmets? Does even Starscream know? Is Starscream behind whatever they're doing? Who is the mystery mnemosurgeon? Was Blast Off actually the one who said the bit about mind probing and recorded the murder? Does Swindle indeed live? Who is DC-357? Are you Ebay username ladiesman217? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.


Probably my only real problem with the issue was that we're not really given a timeframe, so I have no idea how concurrent the events in the two comics are. That makes it a little jarring to see Circuit and Longtooth on Cybertron when they're on Earth in Transformers: All Outta Subtitles. Also, the last time we saw Brawl he was going rage-crazy in a riot as Combiner Wars closed, and... I guess he was just sent home to sleep it off? Cybertron has the weirdest prison system.

Wasn't Brawl fighting with Galvatron in issue 50 or 51 or ex-RiD? And I'm just going off of old previews, so maybe he's been in the more recent issues, I don't know.

In exRID he took control of the Ark with Needlenose and that crew, crashed it, then left for Cybertron through the space bridge.

One of the Badgeless at the crime scene sneaks off in the second to last panel of page 18, so that's probably Blast Off in disguise. I think he's the one who chases the green Bot into the alley and shoots him, which would also make him the one who talks about cutting up memories.

Pretty great first issue all around. Shades of the Cybertronian politicking that made exRID season 1 favourite of mine, and some great new "places" for characters. Ironhide running a security firm? How has nobody thought of that before, that's fantastic.

Yeah, Brawl and Onslaught were last seen as part of the mob of Decepticons who fled back to Cybertron through the space bridge in ex-RID #50 after Optimus rained on Galvatron's parade, and there was a line from Starscream about how Devastator being a moron allowed some of those Decepticons to escape capture.


As for timeframe, this was originally supposed to be out in March, so concurrently with ex-RID #51 is probably a reasonably safe bet.

I liked that as well.  Funny how both Ex-RID and this book both had Decepticons commenting on how Arcee beat them up in the past.

I liked how his mouth was hidden in the first panel he appeared in, almost as if it was trying to create a mystery as to whether he'd have his classic faceplate or current CW open mouth. Then it turns out... both!


I agree this issue was good all-around. This is the sort of stuff I've wanted to see all along with the current situation on Cybertron... all the politics and intrigue between the differing factions.

First time I managed to care about any of the combaticons aside from Swindle (the art is a good 60% of this). I really liked this issue. It flowed well, crammed a lot in without seeming rushed, and started to address the badgeless and Chromia's murder, the two things from the first mini I did not like and felt needing resolution.


But man, Where did Obsidian's face even come from?

You know what I like about this book? It sets up mystery and intrigue that seem sort of... organic, and healthy, and... not crazy nonsense that will give me a headache twenty issues from now...? (Not that there isn't a time and place for that. But.)


More importantly, it has Knock Out and Breakdown in it. That would have been enough. Really nice art too. 


I hope someone gives us a little more on the whole Starscream/Bee thing soon.

Bumblebee is still alive, but he has no body. So he needs a hook-and that is Starscream.


At least, that's what I'm thinking.

I think that whatever the explanation, the fact that the cast list doesn't know how to list him (Ghost? Hallucination?) seems to me, to hints that we might see it addressed.

It was introduced in ex-rid right? Or did he show up in Combiner wars? Because pretty much every plot point in this ties to something Scott had her hand in rather than other ploys laying around.
