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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

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.

@  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)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 November 2019 - 01:47 AM)

This shout is empty.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 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.


Your preferred next Marvel movie?

I've got the Marvel Legends Darkhawk figure displayed prominently on my desk. Love that guy, and would love to see him turn up in the MCU or even the Netflix side stories. Pretty relevant early history with the police brutality angle of Savage Steel. Also Tony Stark connection since that armor was based on his own designs.

I didn't know that existed. Looks like I need to pick something up soon.

It's a secret to everybody

Not a huge fan of the split wing design on the figure, but I fully acknowledge there's really no way to do wings justice in non-statue form.

Most of my desires are just shifing all the X-men/FF rights away from Fox. While Logan and Deadpool proves they can do some things right Most of the X-men Movies have been subpar to the MCU. While it would be odd to shoehorn in mutants now post Inhumans, I'd still like to see it done. And the FF. I feel Reed would be easy to pull in as a contemporary to Stark or Bruce similar to their "Heroes Reborn" backstory With Pym, Tony, Doom, Banner all being college friends and peers. Now obviously Pyms a bit too old for that backstory but I could still see Tony actually funding Reeds research and helping catapult them towards the FF's origin.


Of course that's all out of the question for now so......How about a Widow/Hawkeye movie? I think it'd be cool to see a spy thriller with the two of them.


Or go the course of what the end of Civil War could of set up and start the Thunderbolts. I don't care if they go completely classic or try something more contemporary. Have Gen Ross (or Secretary now) use the Raft as his staging ground to start his own team using his inmates. May be a bit too close to Suicide Squad that way. Or maybe post revival Bucky reluctantly leads the group. Or heck merge both my ideas and bring in Hawkeye, Widow, Winter Soldier and then lead the T-bolts. Just as long as Songbird is involved I'll at least be happy.

Is it wrong if the FF ever do make it to the MCU, I hope they take Reed down his Ultimate Universe path? Reed "The Maker" is so much more interesting.

i think im the only one that DOESNT want the ff or xmen in the mcu. i would like to see dr doom in the mcu though. and wolverine but only if jackmans playing him. other than that, i think theyve got more than enough characters that theyd just make the place way too crowded if they came back

When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell

No just no. Reed should be Reed and the crazy science can stick with Doom. While I don't mind Maker as an alternate take on the character it should never be the main version of him.


I just want the family team dynamic the FF has always tried to achieve. Heck I don't care if we even fast forward a bit and Reed and Sue are already married before they get their powers. Really I think the first two Fox films did this well already but not good enough. We just need science minded Reed with a Sue that keeps him grounded, an annoying Johnny that can get on peoples nerves but has the heart that counts and a strong yet somewhat brooding Ben that's the muscle and glue that holds them together. Don't need the will they/won't they of the first two Fox films Reed and Sue and get a decent replacement for Chris Evans. Heck I'd welcome back Chilkis as Ben. I thought he was perfect for the role. The costume wasn't the best but I liked his take on Thing.


But here's the sticky part of the thing in my mind. Use someone other than Doom in the first attempt. I don't mind if he's in the background like Thanos has been but Doom is worth the wait if they could get him right. Heck I'd almost reattempt the same origin story of the Trank film as they get their powers by opening a portal to the Negative Zone instead. Then have to fight off Blastaar or Annihilus.

If the Fantastic Four do get MCU integration, honestly the first movie ought to have them deal with Skrulls. Ties in with the cosmic aspect, introduces a classic Marvel baddie, and can have some fun plays on Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Then have the macguffin to identify Skrulls not come from Reed himself, but through "advanced identification software from the 'North Korea of Europe' - Latvaria."


Because if we're going to get Doom in the MCU, then I want to see Doom done right, and that means Doom can't be a malevolent antagonist.

I would of said Skrulls myself if they weren't already slated to be used in Captain Marvel I believe. Though I agree on your use of Doom.

I want a She-Hulk netflix series.  I want it to be a legal drama.  She's a DA and the only one whose willing to prosecute super criminals who threaten all who try and enforce the law against them.  By day she puts them away, by night she kicks ass when their people try to exact revenge.

Honestly, introduce her in Daredevil like Punisher, cuase really, Might as well  get both your lawyer characters in one show on case toeather or somehow against each other (you know typical Hero vs Hero 1st meetign drama, but in a courtroom) and out of the way before moving on to a full series.

Just tossing this one out. 


If you could have any character or team get a one-off theatrical, who would it be? 


Sentry, around phase 6-ish time, long after the current crop of phase 1-ish characters has retired.


Do his original Marvel Knights series, but also use it for a celebration of the MCU.


Bring in older (now retired from the role) actors to portray the characters again.  Make it kind of a big reuinion.


Use CG techniques to insert the Sentry in Phase 1 era footage, showing how he's always been around.


Spoiler for the Marvel Knights eries
