And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2021 - 09:37 AM)

Lucky there's a hero arriving in July.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 June 2021 - 05:38 PM)

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

@  tigerhawk : (16 June 2021 - 12:41 PM)

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

I always find it weaird hearing that stores in the US don't initially already taxes in their prices.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

Superior Foes of Spider-Man, starring Boomerang, (new female) Beetle, Overdrive, Speed Demon and Shocker. 17 issue series about them trying to become big time villians. Comedy gold, with lots of twist and turns.

The main cast of the 2016 Contest of Champions series includes a British counterpart to the Punisher from a 3-issue story from the 90s, a character created for a video game, a character created for a Korean webcomic, and Daredevil's mentor.

If you've just finished Initiative, get yourself "Avengers Academy," which was the next in a line of Avengers-titled "young heroes" books Marvel was doing at the time, and after that, "Avengers Arena."

Another female Beetle? I'll look her up but I hope it's the lady from Thunderbolts, the former Bombshell, wife of Ringer Strikeback. I hoped that she somehow survived being crushed by Graviton in Thunderbolts.

Unless its one of the three college kids who made three versions of the Beetle armor from Initiative?

Avengers Academy was just ok compared to the epicness of Slott's Initiative. The six kids just weren't as compelling as the cast in Initiative. But if you finish Academy, READ Arena. It's morbid but very cool and lasts for only 18 issues (I think). The follow up (I forget the title) wasn't as good but still finishes the story.

I'd say... X-Men Aademy? Whichever kids had Prodigy, Surge, Elixir, Hellion, the wind dancer, the pheromonette, when Wolfbane was a hot hot teacher ... The time before Wanda did Decimination Day and before the new writers started slaughtering the kids. Tho that was good too. When Pixie and Anole started standing out.

Kirkmans League of Losers. Its so good.

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.

Spider-man and the X-men is one of the most underrated comics ever and by far my favorite modern team of young/new kid characters at Marvel.

-ZacWilliam, I wish more than just the one panel from that run was famous because the whole book deserved it.

What panel is that?

Would be nice if the title is more catchy. Spider-man and the x-men? Too... normal? Vague? Like a two issue arc in a regular series.

Stop that! no one should ever read Arena.

 

*bangs fists on table* Seven Soldiers

 

I cant like this enough, I'm currently re-reading that,its somewhere around my 3rd fave Grant Morrison work for DC.

 

also, if you just wanna read a fun book? 3 words:

 

THE UNBELIEVABLE GEWNPOOL =]


_+-=-+DAEMON IMMORTALIS+-=-+_

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

Became a bit of a meme awhile back.

-ZacWilliam, such a fun book and the characters really grew on me so much over the sadly short run. Love how it also teams up Spidey and X-men villains in interesting ways.
