@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

I need to get JLU... and Brave and the Bold. Airing for the former went wonky here, so I didn't get to see everything -- I saw the beginning, maybe all of season one, and the end, but missed stuff in-between.

 

BatB... I think I just didn't hear about how good it was until it was effectively too late.

Brave and the bold may have been a lighter approach to Batman, but it knew how to do serious/dark. CHILL OF THE NIGHT.

The Christmas episode, which starts off as a fairly generic 'Batman is grumpy at Christmas' story, gets ABSURDLY dark.

Don't recall that one but the one where Batman was a vampire was terrifying! There was a couple minutes left and I didn't know how the league would win.

Oh Season 1 JLU was actually pretty silly at times. This Little Piggy, Kid Stuff (except the ending), I thought there wild West ep was kinda silly too.

 

'Batman doesn't do holiday cheer' was the theme of a Batman: the Animated Series Christmas episode, but Brave and the Bold gave him a specific reason for not liking it. On Christmas morning, he's a brat about the heartfelt and meaningful gift his father gives him, and nags his parents to take him to the movies. THAT trip to the movies.

 

 

And everyone thought BTBAB was gonna be a kids show.

They killed off a lot of folks in brave and bold. (The doom patrol canon. Bwana beast was elevated as a hero then killed) but it's still offset by the humor? I'm just happy they semi legitimatized (is that a word?) Aquaman as a non-issue hero.

I still like JLU way better tho. I don't get why JLU only had 39 eps (3x13) while brave bold got 52 (right?)

Brave and the bold may have been a lighter approach to Batman, but it knew how to do serious/dark. CHILL OF THE NIGHT. (Bonus points: has the voices of Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill AND Adam West and Julie Newmar)

 

I liked Brave and the Bold for the lighter approach and for the silliness.  It was a refreshing take on Batman.  Then, Chill of the Night happened and my eyes were glued to that episode.  After it finished I just sat there for a moment thinking, "holy heck, they actually went there!"

 

 

It was so strange to see such a light hearted version for a batman series suddenly turn so serious and dark like that.  This is an episode that really stands out from the rest of the series and had become one I'll never forget.

You'd think Joker would be happier that he did that...

 

I remember that one of the comic books based on Batman: The Animated Series had a good Joe Chill story, too.

The crazy part about that was that the debris only fell in that one spot. If you see the end of the episode, you find out that was Spectre's doing.

The current Justice League Action is pretty great if everyone isn't watching it. It's basically "JLU and Brave and the Bold had a baby." Haven't seen a bad episode yet.
-ZacWilliam, deserves way more attention then I've seen it get.


Just started watching this. The very first episode i see has Space Cabbie, Lobo, and Mr Mind. Yup, this is my new obsession!

Yes JL: Action has been pretty fun so far. JL and JLU is still far superior but JL:A has been a fun romp each episode. Plus I love Hamil getting to be a good guy wiih Swamp Thing. And Patton Oswalds Space Cabbie has been fun but an odd choice of characters to focus on. Plus the episode with the Red Lanterns had Dex-Starr! :love

Wow, I hadn't seen that episode. I really like the idea of doing that classic Joe Chill scene with Batman rogues instead of random criminals. I'd love to see it revisited where the ending didn't have to be so restrained.

In cartoon terms, getting hit by falling fill-in-the-blank is way more restrained than being shot.
