@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 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'd be interested where the rights to Marvel Boy/Justice fall. His character origin is tied most strongly to the Guardians of the Galaxy, as his first version was Vance Astro, but his becoming Marvel Boy involved the Fantastic Four somewhat iirc, and he is a Mutant, but one not ever involved in Mutant books/stories.

I would guess he'd be useable if you just never say "Mutant."


-ZacWilliam, I'd at least like to see him, Nightthrasher and Speedball but honestly I'm open to anything fun from Sleepwalker to Reptil.

does adding Squirrel Girl to a New Warriors show mean there will be horrible tiny rambling subtitles in every episode?

 

Otherwise, i know we wint get Nova, or Rage...but Speedball and Nightthrasher are musts. i cant seperate them from the idea of new warriors.

Speedball is an absolute must, but Night Thrasher, the leader of team, is not?


That is correct.

So, are you prejudiced against...a helmeted Nightwing on a skateboard?


No, I would very much prefer that he was present. But he's no Speedball. Or Justice, or Firestar, etc.
He seems like a hard sell without significant reinvention. I fear if they did use him, it would be as a target of mockery.

Your penance for such casual disregard for Night Thrasher is the casting of...Penance.

Muahahahahahah!

In fact I'd prefer the real Penance, cancel this NW show and give us some decent GenX.

Characters revealed:

http://www.cbr.com/s...BR-TW&view=list

Squirrel Girl - Obviously, as she's the one the Network wanted a show about before Marvel sold them on including the NW

Mister Immortal - Makes sense as a member of Squirrel Girl's old GLA team and a quirky guy with an interesting but easy to do on a TV budget power. The only weird bit is he's the only traditionally non-teen guy here.

Night Thrasher and Speedball - sounds like Robbie's powers will be toned down a bit at least to start but these are the two the show needed most to feel like New Warriors to me so cool.

Debrii and Microbe - Huh, I did not expect this book to draw so heavily from that NW series. But I'm cool with it. I quite enjoyed that book/team before Marvel murdered it to make Civil War.

Not the cast I would have guessed. But I think I like it. I've always honestly wanted them to bring Microbe back in the comics anyway.


-ZacWilliam, if they pull off the tone of SG right I think the rest will probably fall into place decently. I would be really interested to see if we get a comic with something like this line up. I think we would if Marvel was smart. But then they've not done anything with the Big Hero 6 so they're kinda not..:

Holy cow, Microbe! That's nice. I hope they treat him well. Debris, well, they needed a sassy girl, though Namorita could have done that too.

I rather liked that reality TV NW mini for it's cartoons art and done in one issues. What if they put Purple Man's sweat in there? Haha

I was a little annoyed for a minute that the lineup wasn't more classic, but then I realized they're using everyone who isn't potentially caught up in a rights issue (Firestar, Namorita) or tangentially related to a more successful property (Nova, Marvel Boy).

 

Still, I'd trade both Microbe and Debrii for Rage. (I'm sure Darkhawk is too out there, budget-wise)

I'm pretty curious what they will do for villains. The Classic New Warriors aren't exactly sporting a major Rogue's Gallery.

-ZacWilliam, and I say that as someone who loves the original run. Neither Squirrel Girl nor the GLA sport much in the way of baddies either...

Maybe it could be like the Justice Friends, where their greatest challenge is learning to get along with each other, but filmed in the style of reality shows like "The Real World."

I know that's not it at all, but a live-action superhero show in that style could be rather entertaining.
