I'll agree with you on that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -Wildstrike- : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

This is, honestly, hilarious. I mean, it's not going to make Marvel any better and can only make DC worse, but it's still really funny that the ultimate Marvel Company Man is now at DC.

Sad that Irredeemable Iron Man won't get to become a full FF book like it seemes to be leading to, as that was the only Marvel book I was reading.

Oh well, we'll see if this gives him some new energy. Hopefully in one of the like 7 books he'll be writing at any one time there will be some smaller fare like Blue Devil

Pray he knows anything at all about your favorite characters, lament because he will not. (let him create his own, maybe?)

He'll be the busiest man at the company and still somehow accomplish the least.

Has creating an all-new character gone well for DC in the past 20 years, no matter the writer?

 

Now, yet another Superman or Batman that's talking like this and never stops and just keeps talking with more and more speech bubbles... yeah, I can see him doing that.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

The rats are leaving the sinking ship. Marvel needs to look internally to see the glaring problems people have already pointed out or itll be too late for them.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Has it? You tell me, I gave up on DC's books ten years ago. The only one I've bought between then and now is Scooby Apocalypse.

I'm interested if he writes crime or street-level stories since that's what he's really good at. Put him in Detective Comics where Batman actually does some honest to goodness detective work. Or hell, put him in charge of the Question.

I really changed my opinion on him once I started reading books and stopped borrowing my opinion from the internet so much.

 

OK, Ultimate Spider-man is an amazing accomplishment. Like, seriously, it was pretty much the center axis of the otherwise tumultuous Ultimate Universe. You read it during Ultimatum and you would have no idea that the book's neighbor was next level poo-poo.

 

His transition from Alias to New Avengers was rough, wiping out much of the team in the poorly executed Avengers Disassembled, but the new team had enough new elements to warrant the "New" title and the book was one of Marvel's flagship's during some great years. Around Civil War he did one shows showing he learned the value of short format storytelling and thanks to (I imagine) some wikipedia he had come to understand the value of the characters he washed away. Hawkeye was back, and after some time away with him, he was cool! an icon of how you can't keep down a fan-favorite.

BUT is was kind of crappy that he hijacks Asgard away from JMS, and Age Of Ultron was just a weak storyline that I feel started Marvel's recent string of bad events. I haven't heard anything good about his run on GOTG, but I've been enjoying Defenders well enough, which makes sense since it's him back in his street-level roots. although the guest stars are tiring.

 

So who knows what he could do at DC? Hopefully editorial won't give him Carte Blanche, or perhaps he'll contribute to the very slowly moving Earth-1 project. Me? I'm fascinated - this could go either way. I'm not going to commit until I know more about his first book, but she it comes I'm going to ignore alls y'all and make up my own mind.


Woooo!

I don't think I've read a Bendis comic since his awful Fear Itself tie-ins. They happened right around when Ultimate Peter Parker died, so that felt like a pretty good jumping off point in general. That marked the start of my Marvel reading declining to nothing.

I really liked New Avengers when he started that, but it felt like everything changed almost immediately after, and never really settled into any sort of status quo as new events were pretty constant.

I feel like you can't even name an Avengers roster that stayed out for longer than a cup of coffee since he started.

Ultimate Spider-Man was great.
