I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

Man, am I going to annoy the hell out of people by singing that Starbomb song every time I play as Simon.

 

Man I'm wondering.  That hidden mode.  Story mode perhaps?

 

I'd love it, but I daren't dream.

 

At this point, I wish Nintendo would just take the characters they own and make a story-based spinoff. Could be a platformer, a beat-em-up, a Dynasty Warriors type thing...hell, make it a sequel to Mario Odyssey and have him travel to the other games' worlds and build a party, RPG style.

Okay! I have just found my reason to live. I'd already paid off my reserve. So I was getting this anyway. But this is just a nice affirmation that I did the right thing.

Simon, Pit and Mega Man are going to now be my most used amiibos. If they do 8-man melee again, I can add Link (since he was in the cartoon) and Samus (since she was in the comic).

*sad sigh that there will never be a Kevin Keene or or Princess Lana*

Best hope Lana from Hyrule Warriors gets in!

I really want Captain N as a playable character. Really really do.

Like, I want to say there isn't a reason they can't use him, but I have a feeling there is. Like does he technically belong to the animation studio or something?

Up to this point, I think all characters have appeared in conjunction with video games before any other media. There is no Captain N video game.

 

That said, maybe they'll break that barrier around the same time they (I hope) get around to Goku.

I have to agree with D Buster on Captain N.  He never appeared in a video game, which is a must for a character to appear in Smash Bros.  He was basically an idea from the early years of Nintendo Power as an idea by a former Nintendo employee and former staffer, which Nintendo had DiC make into a cartoon without crediting or compensating said employee (which they would never get away with nowadays).

 

Also, the Nintendo cartoons made by DiC has been notorious to most gamers for being some of the worst video game-based cartoons in existence (with examples like Link whining "excuse me, princess", the various pasta puns in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, or Mother Brain sounding like the plant from Little Shop Of Horrors).

I actually liked that Zelda cartoon. And whenever Link and Zelda appeared on Captain N...with the same voice actors, I could watch those episodes over and over again.

Also...there's a reason Mother Brain sounded like the plant from Little Shop of Horrors.  ;)

No... No.. And Mother Hugging NO for Goku.

There is NO reason for him to be in smash. If -any- non video game character deserves to be in smash it's Kamen Rider #1/2 because of influence on Captain Falcon!
