@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

KUP!

@  Sabrblade : (01 August 2020 - 04:58 PM)

I think you've told us about this before. I'm not sure what to say. It's one thing when you're the one with the problem and it's up to you to take action. It's a different story all together when it's someone you care about who refuses to do what needs to be done.

I hate to say it, but at this point I don't think there's much if anything you can do about your sister. She's making her choice. I think what you can do is what you're doing. Find help for yourself so you can get your own head on straight.

I don't know what you can do about the kids. I'd hope that aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. wouldn't be punished for the actions of a parent. I just don't know how those situations work. I hope for the best though.

Yeah, if she can't even admit she needs help... I'm so sorry about the whole situation. Wish I had some advice or something I could offer.

Despite hitting a cop, and ranting and raving: she apparently had enough sense to volunteer for treatment at the hospital, and as a consequence, will more than likely be released on monday.

 

So we get to go through all this again in about a year.

I think it might be good to seek help for yourself. A therapist may be able to help you with how to handle your sister.

 

Recently I got a call from someone looking for a former colleague's contact info. Apparently he posted online that he was going to kill himself. Even though we don't have anything on how to deal w/ that sort of situation, I didn't want to waste time seeking a boss's approval and gave her the info. Kinda glad that one of my previous jobs taking calls from the public included training on how to handle these things. Still shook me up a bit. I hope he's ok.

Sister was released today.

 

It's a five minute drive from her place to ours. In that time, she started a hugging fight with her partner. So yeah, she learned nothing, and her next act will be to stop taking the meds. Not even any remorse for attacking him.

 

edIt: 20 minutes in, and my parents are on my way over there to calm her down. Absolutely nothing has changed at all.

I hate to say this, but what I'm hearing is making me think it's time to say this.

 

As much as she may be stressing you out and infuriating you I think there's still a certain amount of "she's my sister and I love her" going on. Otherwise you wouldn't be stressing about this.

 

However, I truly think it's time for you and possibly even your parents to withdraw. As much as I'm sure you want to help her, you've said yourself that she refuses to listen.

 

my two cents "until you start taking things seriously, don't come around to my house. No birthdays, no holidays. Until you start trying to get better, I don't want to see you."

 

This may even mean you have to let her do prison time. But until she starts getting real about this, I don't know what else you can do.

 

Now of course if she starts to truly get her life together, by all means welcome her back with open arms. But until then, it's harsh, but it could very well be what it takes.

I'm not worried about her. Not at all. I'm worried about her husband, her children, and my mother. She's hugging killing us all slowly, and does not care.

 

As for welcoming her back with open arms: that's been my MO in life. One time one of my best friends in this world fell into a relationship with someone who was horrible for him. He wound up... I'm saying "cutting off contact" with all his friends, but it wasn't abrupt. It happened slowly over months. He literally disappeared from our lives for 3 years straight. One day we got a call from him out of the blue: he had dumped her cause he figured it out. She was toxic. When he called and asked if he could visit, we treated it like it had been a weekend since, not 3 years. A hug for a brother, a cold bottle to warm the heart, and let him tell it his way if he wants.

 

This bitch has burned her bridge with me. I would sleep easier tonight if her husband called and said she was ejected from the apartment. Let her be homeless, let her pick a fight she can't hugging win in some forsaken homeless shelter, and let her be a hugging obituary already: the rest of us will be better off for it cause from where I'm sitting; she will NEVER change.

 

Edit: okay... I thought I was emotionally exhausted before. I'm going to be alone most of tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to call the mental health line and see if I can talk to someone...
