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

Well at the very least it is keeping him away from Avengers and X-men that are generally much better for that.

-ZacWilliam, I joke... sorta. I was not a fan of most of his Marvel runs (save Ultimate Spidey) at all but he does seem to be doing much better at DC from what I have heard people say at least.

I see behind a thousand lies that you try to hide

I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive
I...love the way you kill me
I love the way you watch me die

Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down

Man, I'm really annoyed that Marvel's ending their main Star Wars comic at #75. #50 was clearly meant to read as the exact midpoint between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, and the fact they didn't end it when Gillen left at #67 made me assume they'd be going to #100.

And as a follow up to my Star Wars complaint, I was going to post something I saw in the December Marvel solicits, but when I went to double check some info they'd been taken down, the site posted them early. I don't want to risk Disney's lawyers coming after me posting about what I remember.

Just going to say I got me four Legion rings (three for my friends and one for me) that came with the Bendis Legion.

Ended up buying the issue because they referenced Aquaman.

Hated the story for being stretched but whatever. Issue one is the only cash Bendis will get from me.

Most of the first wave of Hickmanian X-books have launched now - I think Fallen Angels is next week and that's all of them. I've enjoyed them all so far. They're all a bit more "now let's just do books about established X-Men characters acting like themselves", which is NOT what HOXPOX was. HOXPOX was a bit "here's a crazy story to set everything up, and everyone's acting like a weird robot clone or something". 

 

I like having the entire X-universe hanging out together in one place, like the good old days at the mansion, but... well, I'd rather it was At The Mansion in Westchester rather than... freaky living island guy. It's nice to have all the characters available to swan past in the background of the books they don't belong to. And there are some very interesting characters being used. Like, Mondo in New Mutants... Mondo was barely used in Gen X when he debuted, despite being a prominent part of the pre-launch publicity, and he's made bugger all appearances since AFAIK. Black Tom in X-Force. The Excalibur roster of Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Betsy and Apocalypse is like... can you build a cooler X-team than that? (And of course you can, but it's easy to choose boringer guys.)

 

The one thing that didn't impress me so far is X-Force #1

 

Spoiler

 

That's not to say the book's irredeemable, but it's the only debut issue so far that left me with an aftertaste of anything worse than "that was interesting". 

 

As an X-Men fan for decades, a dude who was pulled into the wider world of superhero comics by the X-Men, it's really exciting to me that we have a relaunch here that I'm enjoying so much after years and years of books that just never grabbed me. Interestingly though, apparently this Hickman stuff has been in the works for years and was placing limitations on what the intervening X-books could do, which may well be a part of why they never really sang? It sounds like there was lots of "you can't write what you want because it steps on Future Hickman's Future Toes" which is rarely a great environment for writers to flourish, but it's pretty much the status quo for shared superhero universes so maybe it isn't a big deal.

Good time to be a Midnight Sons fan too, with a Danny Ketch book and now Morbius. Bit early to tell really, but they both seem okay. 

 

Now where's my Darkhold Redeemers book, Marvel?!

im gonna give this morbius book a few issues before i really judge it...but i dunno, i REALLY (i am the only one i'm sure) loved the last morbius book...the one where he wore a hoodie and helped people in a neighborhood? LOVED it so much.

 

But that Ghost Rider book? Almost unreadable...that stuffs bad, sadly.

If you aren't reading Marauders you are SERIOUSLY missing out on one of the best titles marvel has put out in a while.
