The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

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.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

@  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)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

Thats why i said if they can fix the forge :p

As for the gauntlet being useless without the stones, whos to say they wont be trying to get them from thanos to use to put everything back? Thanos' gauntlet is toast, or at least severly damaged. Assuming the only way to undo what was done is to use another gauntlet, then theres potentially one just waiting to be made

They didnt need to SHOW a mold or whatever it was when eitri says he made it for thanos. Showing it is redundant unless its gonna figure into endgame in a chekovs gun kinda thing

But its all just a guess. I could be and am expecting to be wrong.

Okay, I just woke up from this dream and I have to post about it. It's very rare that I recall dreams with such clarity, and this is the most fitting topic I can post it in.



So, I had a dream that I was watching an unknown Avengers movie with someone, I'm not sure who. It seemed to be part of some box set. What's more, I seem to be playing this film on a carosel-like DVD or Blu-ray player, which had a lid that was somewhat fiddly to set in place properly.

I recall the scene that was playing during the pause screen before the movie is started featured Iron Man trying to get in touch with someone, possibly Captain America, and failing to reach him. Exasperated, Tony muttered "fine, I'll do it myself" before hitting his afterburners and flying into danger, as he prepared to attack unknown forces that were swarming and attacking an aircraft carrier. I think it may have been a helicarrier, and thus its probably based off of the events in the first film, although the carrier was in the water.

I also remember what seemed to have been outtakes from a scene where Loki and Thor were somewhere out in the woods, very close to the edge of what appeared to be a sunny clearing, camping out. And Loki had made breakfast on some sort of grill. He told Thor good morning, as he was cooking, wearing his normal somewhat fancy Loki-clothing I might add.

Thor was eating what appeared to be a stack of pancakes that he had speared with his fork, and was eating them in a circle, making his way inward towards the center of the stack, and I recall saying "...as Thor eats a stack of pancakes like a friggin popsicle!"

As it turns out there were hot dogs in between the pancakes here and there, and Thor was going on about how good it was, and Loki mentioned he knew that if anyone would appreciate his cooking, it was Thor.

The scene continued, and I recalled wondering if Thor had any actual taste refinement, or if he was the type to just eat anything. If it was the latter, that would totally explain Loki's attitude towards his cooking.

Thor went on to make an "aaaak!" sound that made the audience think he might be choking, but as it turns out he was trying to think and whatever he was trying to express was right on the tip of his brain but he couldn't quite get it out. As he wracked his brain, he leaned back and frustratedly tapped his forehead with the palm of his free right-hand. He said something along the lines of the following!:

"Ah! And what is this wonderful seasoning, that tastes like the rare fermented thousand-year-old fruit of an -unintelligible-?"

Loki went on to say, if I'm recalling correctly, that it was Worcestershire sauce. Yeah, Worcestershire sauce on a stack of hot dog pancakes.

Anyway, Thor continued to comment on how good the food was, and in what seemed to be the blooper portion of the outtake, one of his complimentary asides about the food was "NO hepatitis c...", implying that Asgardians can taste disease organisms in their food, which would affect the flavor of what they were eating, but otherwise was absolutely harmless to them.

That must have been the point that people started cracking up and the Crew starts laughing and yells to cut the scene.

Yeah... now I'm kind of mad that this scene doesn't exist. 🤣

Thor's totally the kind of guy who would spear a stack of pancakes and eat them like that.

Of course Drax would spear the pancakes. If he doesn't, then Rocket will take them before he can eat them.

Just realized - Loki probably would use Maple Syrup on the pancakes but TELL Thor he used Worcestershire, as a giggle.

 

Then Thor just innocently puts Worcestershire sauce on pancakes (Much to the mute horror of the other Avengers. Banner makes a move to tell Thor, but Strange hushes him, oddly curious), Loki gets a Cheshire grin, Thor takes a bite, pauses, slow chews...eyes lock on Loki.

 

"Brother, you lied to me."

 

Loki, barely able to stifle a laugh, begins to make a grandiose proclamation but suddenly registers the big, stupid grin on Thor's face. Worcestershire sauce dribbling from the corners of his mouth.

 

"This is better!"

 

Loki is stunned, the Avengers are stunned, Strange chuckles a little. Peter frantically grabs for the Worcestershire.

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.

Now, supposing that there was only one stack of pancakes left and both Thor and Drax were to spear it with their forks at the same time...

 

 

Civil War 3?
