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.

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)

Evil-Lynn and Beastman for magic and classic henchman-ish-ness but 2002 Tri-Klops for mechanical genius (plus skilled sword fighter). Trap-Jaw is suppose to be a war tactician, not that they really show it.

Teela (skill) and Man-at-Arms, yes, but Orko has to be there for magic. They wouldn't need brute strength since He-Man is there already.

 

 

Lore might command him to be better suited to the role, but Tri-Klops is hugging ridiculous, and if you're going to have a guy who's basic deal is that he's been cybernetically enhanced, use the guy with the sweet gun arm and overall cool, menacing look, instead of the guy with three different eyes.

I'm guessing you will see Adam.  And Skeletor.  And that's it.  Then a lot of faceless guys on one side or the other or a stock "we're magically on Earth" thing again.  Goyer.

But really, the time to make this movie has come and gone. They needed to strike while the iron was still hot from Transformers 1. The nostalgia cycle has moved into the 90s now, and He-Man is literally the earliest possible thing from the 80s you could make. It's just too late.


Nah, they're just getting a jump on early-aughts nostalgia.

I thought it was okay personally. A good episode here and there. I found the heroes a bit lacking. The King Grayskull episode being the one stand out for me.

2002 was a great reboot. There were a few bad eps (the Beach where Clawful wasn't even the star or the boring Buzzoff vs 3 Giants) but there were more awesome stuff (Stinkor's ep, the Evil Lynn with Marzo ep, the origin etc).



Doubt they'll use an unknown as He-Man so which probable established big guy could they use? Dwayne Johnson?

It was a pretty good show that could've been better which somehow also featured some of the best animation ever produced for American TV. And basically nobody watched it.

Oh man, I'd love to see the collective meltdown if they cast a white teen for Adam and Dwayne Johnson for He-Man. I'd laugh and laugh and laugh.

As far as generally and intelligently updating the "lore" of MOTU goes, the cartoon did a pretty bang-up job. And it looked great. But in all other respects, it was still just MOTU, and the thing about MOTU is, it's not actually any good.

When I was first watching as a little kid and I didn't know any better, I thought Prince Adam turned into a black man when he became He-Man, so that idea resonates with me somewhat.

I enjoyed it? And I still enjoy it?

 

I mean, I guess I don't know what "good" necessarily is or what something has to be in order to be good, but I'm pretty sure I don't care too much as long as I have a good time.

 

I'll agree that the name "He-Man" doesn't really seem like it works today, except in the eyes of die-hard fans and so many of the wrong people, but beyond that? I feel like there's definitely something there.

I remember when I first realized that He-Man was a lame preexisting term for a macho muscle guy and coming to that revelation definitely takes a chunk out of the coolness of the character/franchise.

I mean none of the names are Shakespeare but most are "bad" in a slightly more B-movie sci-fi way.

-ZacWilliam, they might do better to use it like a title. Like Man-At-Arms is Duncan's title. It's still goofy but that's not really a bridge you can fix.

I'm going to contemplate the distant possibility that I won't have to wince through all of this and selfishly hope that Eva Green is cast as Evil-Lyn. I know it's trite and I'm okay with it; she is mesmerizing.

I know.

But as far as the toy was concerned it was as much his name as any other toy name. Fiction made it the real world title and not just the same type of toyetic Pun everyelse was named.

Whoever they go with doesn't necessarily have to be a giant Schwarzenegger/Lundgren muscle-bound monster. As long as it's someone that's ripped al a Hugh Jackman or Gerard Butler type musculature I think it'd be fine.

 

A long time ago there was a leaner, pants-wearing He-Man, after all.

 

 

Ten years ago my choice He-Man would've been Ryan Reynolds or Dwayne Johnson, but now they're both over 40 so I dunno.
