I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

I was a bit iffy about T'Chaka dying in Civil War at first. It felt like too big a story point to be happening in someone else's movie.

 

But now that we're here, I'm glad that T'Challa can start right off being king, instead of having to build up to it.

So wait, Klaw claims he's the only one to have set foot in Wakanda proper, but in Age of Ultron that Wakandan brand was key to unlocking both his importance to the story and what Ultron's plan was.

 

I mean, how realistic is it that Wakanda is some secret African Superpower? Why is that even a plot point? I'm not really versed on Black Panther stories, but I always got the impression Wakanda was like Latvaria and the Savage Land - known locations on Earth.

iirc Wakanda was EXTREMELY isolationist for much of its history. Its known about, but at the start no one knew it was the super-advanced nation that is really is becuase almost no outsiders ever entered. Nowadays that's been loosened since Black Panther has allowed the Avengers and other Heroes to come and go, but not sure if they're still closed to non-allies of the king.

Wakanda IS known in the MCU; apparently as a third-world country where they brand smugglers. Doesn't mean they know about the jets and the super suits and all the other superhero tech.

As explained by the trailer, Wakanda is known to the public, but El Dorado, located within Wakanda is not.  That means that the country has managed to keep many secrets within its borders.

The trailer just says 'they called it El Dorado' meaning the explorers did.. not that El Dorado is in Wakanda.

The capital of Wakanda in the comics is Birnin Zana which also means Golden City.. so that's probably why he says that (not that there couldn't be 2 golden cities in the world though lol)

Not knowing a ton about the source material, it looks alright.  Maybe a little cheesy that there are multiple Black Panther armors (and an evil Black Panther armor), but I'll buy Marvel Legends of all of them like the sucker that I am.

Congratulats on making Iron Man's armor look outdated and clunky.

 

Sure Tony, you can turn your armor into a suitcase, and fly it piece-by-piece across the country or down from a satellite...but can it simply manifest out of nowhere?  No?  You're yesterday's news.

To be fair, the Wakandans have been developing this technology for centuries. Tony's made some decent leaps and bounds in just 10 years.

(It kinda begs the question of why the Black Panther armor can't fly though.)

When was the last time you seen a panther walk on 2 legs and shoot metal discs at trucks?

My point was that the armor seems to simultaneously outclass the Iron Man armor while missing a basic feature of it.

maybe they have tried, but they just cant get something with enough power to maintain it. after all, the iron man suits seem to be the only examples of people being able to fly in the mcu*. perhaps its not as easy as we seem to believe it is in this universe

 

wait. what about falcon? he doesnt have an arc reactor. he has tiny jets in his suit right? how does his suit work? course i dont think falcon can fly from gulmira to california...

 

maybe wakandans just cant crack it
