"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

Minis are a good way for Marvel to try new Character/Creator combos without getting the stigma of "They Always Cancel Everything" if something doesn't take off.

-ZacWilliam, They need to be careful about launching too many books at once though. Comic audiences are only so big and can only support so many books at current prices. Even if you launched 6 wonderful books the audience may only have funds to buy half that no matter the quality.

Looks like Coates is finally following up on the Space Wakanda plot thread left by Hickman.

I wonder what theyre doing with Madrox. Didnt they JUST kill him?

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.

I'm kinda enjoying the buildup to the Infinity event...Wednesdays Countdown prime was a good story wrapped in a recap. and also managed to feature a cameo by SHAZAMs arm, leg and cape in the "other realities Captain Marvels" montage, so that was a fun geek moment.


That's... kinda freaky for me. When I was collecting Peter David's Genis Vel Captain Marvel and it was cancelled, he was moved to Fabian Niceiza's Thunderbolts (because Songbird and Genis were suppose to be a couple from Buseik's Avengers Forever).

But they had to get rid of Genis because... I don't know, they couldn't use Captain Marvel anymore or something. So they... cut him up into body parts and spread him across dimensions. But he's still alive. I think.

 

Why did you have to remind me of this? Such an interesting, unique character, 'killed' by a backhand from Atlas, turned into a whiny chump and then spread across the Darkforce to big up Zemo... At least when Phyla was meaninglessly killed to big up someone, it was Thaos himself.

Al Ewing (W) and Joe Bennett (A)

This actually sounds kinda rad.



Ewing: Theres one line that resonates strongly with me when it comes to Banner and Hulk. Its the line from the cover of the very first issue Is he man or monster or is he both? And thats the line we explore with Bruce Banner. When we join him, hes walking the Earth, his return from the dead whispered about but not yet public knowledge. Hes attempting to use the power inside him the rage inside him to atone for his sins, to right wrongs, to bring a measure of justice or vengeance to the situations he finds himself in. Hes allowing the Hulk to guide him a little. And if that idea sends a little chill down your spine youre not alone.

In terms of the Banner/Hulk dynamic Ive been getting a little Jungian. Ive been thinking of the Hulk as Banners shadow, the personification of all the things he doesnt like to see in himself. That leads to some interesting interplay between them the Hulk side lives in mirrors, and during the day he brings hunches, sudden intuitions, magical thinking but theres one difference between them I think people will want to know about right away.

Banner can die. The Hulk cant. If you shoot Banner in the head hell fall over dead. Hell lie there all day, dead as dirt, growing cold, getting stiff right up until the sun goes down. And then well, night is the Hulks time.

And the Hulk remembers.

That does sound awesome. Like the line in the Avengers movie where Banner bluntly states he tried to shoot himself. Only for the Hulk to spit up the bullet and just keep on truckin.

I loved Superior Foes and enjoyed what I read of his Ant-Man run, I never read the final volume and probably never will. I still maintain that Hydra Cap wasn't an inherently unsalvageable concept, but damn if Spencer didn't make it impossible to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Yeah that Capt. America run and even more his online attitude and behavior causedwhat has to be the biggest turnaround I've ever seen in a Creator's "stock."

Literally everyone I know and listen to who reads comics loved Superior Foes as one of Marvel's best modern books. All those same people, literally everyone I know and listen to is now avoiding this book relaunch like it's on fire because of the toxic thing Spencer turned into during his Cap run.

-ZacWilliam, I've never seen folks who would have drooled all over a project a couple years ago sneer and spit on it so completely.

It'll be an interesting transition...one writer who pissed a bunch of people off on social media followed by another writer who pissed a bunch of people off on social media.

 

End of the day, none of that interests me. My concern is that Nick Spencer was hit-or-miss for me back when he was beloved, and both Secret Empire and the comics leading up to it suuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuucked.

Spacetwinks on Twitter pointed out that this is probably the ultimate example of Marvel's "we can do no wrong" mentality - Secret Empire tanks their PR with HydraCap and their sales with event fatigue... and they respond by giving the guy responsible what is inarguably their highest-profile title. I don't think we're seeing any meaningful change from the House of Ideas soon.

Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down
