He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I hope it's a good show.  I'm burnt out on anything to do with Gotham City after well, Gotham.

 

Kind of ruined it for me.  Just like the upcoming Pennyworth TV series.

I find myself wishing that they would do a version of Batwoman where there was never a Batman.  So she could just be the hero without having another hero lingering over her, out of sight until they decide to finally bring him in for a little while.  Alas, it is not to be.

"Batman gave up on us." Yay, make out that Batman abandons Gotham. 'Sigh'

The final line though. I know the "i'm not about let a man take credit for a womans work." is probably meant to be funny, but it just made me roll my eyes. And Kate just finds the Batcave?

I was wondering how long it would take someone to steal the "her(o)" bit from the Captain Marvel trailer.

 

I really hope her sidekick is more like Alfred, and less like Felicity/Cisco/Winn/Brainy.  Batpersons don't need a "guy in a chair".

 

Really surprised they're launching the show in the fall, I still think it makes more sense to do it after Crisis, but that's just me....

Batpeople invented the "guy in a chair" in a DC superhero context that every one of the CW shows has done a waterdown derivation of.  And it was a vital and important part of the Batfamily for 22 years before DC decided to shit itself.  And Kate had a guy in the chair for a solid decade until Tynion decided to shit on that. You're more than a little offbase.

I'm not really feeling this, it kind of feels wrong on many levels, starting with the fact Batman has abandoned Gotham along with Bruce Wane, it feels completely out of character for both of them. Finding the Batcave under the Wane building, is another wrong because its something city planners would of taken note of, a mysterious large cave but then in the Dark Knight film, Bruce's base as Batman is in a shipping yard and one could ask how the heck did that go unnoticed? Generally, I'm not really feeling this as a series and its raising more questions than it should, like when did Bruce have a cousin and after the death of his parents, he should of been put with his uncle/aunt cusody instead of his Butler? I might be overthinking a lot of this and I'm not someone who reads comics but from what I understand of things related to Batman family wise, he has no blood relatives that are older than Bruce, he has his son thanks to Talia al Ghul and her father and then he also adopted a few kids who all become Robins.

 

This series is already questionable at best, the trailer is ok in someways but the way they use words and promote the fact its a female, feels more like it will rub people the wrong way and turn others off, I wasn't exactly impressed by the actresses during the resent crossover event, but then that event was rather rubbish and felt like they were trying for a back door pilot to Batwoman than anything else, just establish Gotham city all of a sudden, why I prefered the previous Crossover which was better written and didn't need to stall their respected series plots for the crossover as the resent one did.

 

Overall, I'm not sure if I'll bother with this series, I got this feeling it will go downhill as the first season progresses as its unlikely to attracted many new viewers and could just drive people way.

My ideal of Batman is someone who's greatest power is his mind, who knows everything he needs to handle any situation, and quickly figures out anything he doesn't know.  He rarely needs to be told what to do or need someone to hack obstacles away for him.

 

I understand that's just one of many different interpretations of Batman, and Batwoman can do things her own way, but my main concern is this show not having the same setup that we've had 3 times already.  That's just my opinion, I'm not going to pick a fight over it.

Comics don't make any sense if you think about them. So far Ruby's done a great portrayal of Kate in what we've seen of her. If it's not your thing, no harm in not watching it, I however think it will garner a Bat-ton of new viewers as well as the regular CW-verse fans.

Ruby and Melissa already have established a pretty good on screen chemistry too, so I hope they get to do a bunch of visits with each other.

 

My only fear is that like the Supergirl show has done, they'll use Bruce's enemies instead of Kate's.

What a cringe trailer.

Batman abandons Gotham. They couldn't be like "he's gone missing" or "he died or was captured" They just decided he said screw it.

Is it just to justify Kate's attitude towards batman? I mean the back and forth about the suit and her line at the end just don't really make sense unless were supposed to hate batman in this. I mean they don't really make sense anyways.. Kate is basically just taking the equipment and credit that someone else built before her and then takes exception to that person getting credit. It's just kinda.. what?

 

Maybe it will be better than the trailer lets one. Maybe it's just outrage marketing. But that won't make the trailer any less terrible.

They'll likely plough through all of Kate's enemies and then evenly bring in the Joker before having him upstaged by his on and off love interst, Harley Quinn, just for the sake of having a strong woman.

I don't see much reason for people to immediately take "Batman gave up on us" at face value. Batman not being present because Bruce Wayne was busy/hurt/presumed dead/captured and people in Gotham assuming the most cynical take is absolutely nothing new (though in fairness, neither would Bruce not wanting to be Batman anymore).

Mostly what I hope is that the red wig ensemble she takes on so that people don't credit all her deeds to Batman is a fairly early development; I'm thoroughly worn out by TV/streaming superheroes taking entire seasons or more to wear costumes that resemble their comic counterparts, and we already know what Kate's looks like thanks to Elseworlds and the teasers.

I chuckled at the "I'm a woman and here I come" song. This is the singular note of the trailer, over and over again, and then to have it in song form.... oh gosh. It's like if someone heard "Now You're A Man" from Orgazmo and instead of realizing it was tongue in cheek said  "Yeah, we need one of those for the ladies." How did Ripley and Sarah Connor manage to be bad ass female characters without their own theme songs letting audiences know they were in fact bad ass women?

 

It also looks kinda low budget. Is that just normal with CW shows? Only one I've seen in the last ten years was The 100 and that managed decent sci-fi/post-apocalyptic settings and effects, but maybe that was an outlier. I don't think it helps that the villain of the trailer (season?) is some cheap Mad Hatter knock off instead of the man himself. It makes perfect sense to come out of the gate with a villain unique to Kane instead of just running through Batman's rogue gallery, but if all they could come up with was so derivative of another existing villain why not just use that villain?

 

Tangent #521: Crows? CROWS? Game of Thrones is one of the most hyped shows in the last several years and you're going to calls a prominent group Crows? I mean I guess if that was from the comics maybe it's best to stick to the source material...

Yes, CW shows look like shit. You're way off base on the villain though. Alice is nothing like Hatter and nowhere near derivative of him, Kate's most prominent villain, and a crucial part of her origins. If they left her twin sister out of the show it would be even worse than it likely already will be.
