If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

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

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.

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)

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

@  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)

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.

ResurrXion- return to the 90's era?

X-men Gold Blue GenX Cable Weapon X

So Marvels been spilling the beans pretty early about their post X-men vs.Inhumans plan a bit. I'd say we are in for a revamp of the entire line since we now have quite a few titles titles. Some that are really calling back to the 90's era of the series.

 

X-men Blue

X-men Gold

Generation X (Jubilee confirmed!)

Cable

Weapon X

 

and a few new solo titles for some characters who have never really had a solo series before

 

Jean Grey

Iceman

 

Now how the older titles will become is up in the air yet. The Blue and Gold series are supposed to be returning to more of a Superheroic feel in a world that hates and fears them and less the end is nigh for Mutantkind like its been for a decade. Gen X is presumedly our new school title with Jubilee featuring somehow (teaching would be soooo weird). No word on how Cables going to be but Weapon X has been billed as to the hardcore, jive is going to fly title.

 

Jean and Iceman however are the titles catering to certain crowds. Jean will most likely become the strong female lead title and I'm absolutely cool with that. Jean has long been the uber powerful character in the x-men only to get fridged to take it back down a peg. Now hopefully this is still the young Jean in the modern era which I do enjoy having around but given the ResurrXion tag line, older Jean coming back from the white hot room seems possible.

 

Iceman however will probably be the comic catering to the LBGT community with his retconned new status as being gay. And otherwise I'm cool with the fact Bobby is getting a solo series. Jean and Him were the only 2 of the original team never to get any solo focus I believe. I'm still not cool with the retcon though. If it was just the younger Bobby discovering something in the new current era I'd be more apt to go with it, but to force it onto the original Bobby who's been through relationship after relationship and had issues with Northstar being around, it's just not sitting well with me. Still it's also not determined whether the title is focused on the older or younger Bobby, for all we know currently it's going to be both which would be a weirdly interesting dynamic. I'm beginning to think the original 5 that Older Beast ripped from their past has set a different timeline in motion from the 616 and thus the reason they can't go back is that the 616 timeline is somehow already set somehow and that their time has divergerged onto it's own path and somehow the time travel conventions they have normally used isn't working. Plus there is the Secret Wars and the multiversal splintering and reconverging... anyways gone off on a tangent..

 

So what do you guys think of the ResurrXion news?

Man, Marvel sure is doing a poor job of killing the X-Men forever and replacing them. People keep saying that's what they're doing and yet they keep walking it back like this.

I am utterly disinterested in Resurroion until they announce solo teams.
Also I'm skeptical that Jean and Iceman can hold their own series, and after how badly Bendis Bendised up the "coming out" of Iceman, I'm incredibly unenthusiastic about the prospect of more gay Iceman stories.

Yeah, now the X-Men don't have to worry about being killed off, just about being badly written like 70% of other Marvel titles.
(seriously though I think it's pretty unambiguous that Marvel has been trying to deemphasise the X-Men out of spite, especially since the ban on artists drawing them at cons)

Well, this sounds pretty great to me. I agree that solo books are unlikely to last long in most cases (but what books do?).

But ultimately... Gen X? Jubilee? Yes please. None of the rest really matters.

I really hope Bishop ends up on one of the teams, preferably Gold. Problem is that I just don't know how to any X-Men rosters manageable with just 2 teams. Even back in the old days there were only 13 or 14 characters max, and people complained it was too many. I have more favourites than that, damnit! I'm also including dead characters in my wishlist, because why not.

 

Gold: Storm

Wolverine

Colossus

Jean Grey

Archangel

Bishop

Domino

Gambit

Cable

 

 

Blue:
Cyclops

Psylocke

Beast

Rogue

Magik

Marrow

Iceman

Surge

 

Maintenance Staff: Forge and Cecilia Reyes (Cecilia would essentially be a full-time, albeit reluctant, Blue Team member)

Question: 

 

Is original Wolverine still dead/encased in Adamantium/suffering from the lamest death issue ever?

Original Wolverine is still dead.

But ANAD Wolverine has been a really good book so, fair trade.


-ZacWilliam, vanilla Logan is still pretty played out. I think he needs to rest until he feels interesting again...

I am kinda amazed they haven't brought him back yet beyond extra-dimmensional counterparts.

 

Course, it's been.....12 years since Jean Grey died. And also Marvel hated mutants until now, apparently.

Hmm, in the few places I've seen him I'd say the post-Morrison guest appearances were passable but kinda uninspired. He was "Morrison-Noh Varr light." The Bendis Avengers appearances were pretty awful and pointless, bland and personality-less (like Bendis Avengers in general really). Young Avengers NV was a fine character on the other hand, used and developed passably, he just didn't seem connected at all to any previous versions in personality or expression.

I guess I'd say he's been very inconsistent. At this point Ewing could really do anything with him and not be way afield because there's kinda been no consistant field to aim for.


-ZacWilliam, though in the interview Ewing says he's gonna try to bridge the versions some so if he can pull that off it can only help NV

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of a new ongoing series starring the Inhuman Royal Family, Marvel has announced that the Inhuman king Black Bolt will soon get his very first ongoing series. The new “Black Bolt” ongoing, which was announced via io9, will be written by novelist Saladin Ahmed (“The Crescent Moon Kingdoms”) and featuring art by Christian Ward (“The Ultimates”).

http://www.cbr.com/m...-inhumans-line/

Yeah, could be cool. Author's apparently a popular sci-fi novelist, so.

I'm honestly already more excited by the Inhuman lineup than by the X-Men.
