I reject your canon and substitute my own

@  unluckiness : (25 June 2019 - 12:32 AM)

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

@  Gizmoboy : (24 June 2019 - 07:50 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (23 June 2019 - 10:17 PM)

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:26 PM)

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:25 PM)

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:21 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (22 June 2019 - 04:45 PM)

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Supposedly it's about that football player Calvin Johnson.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2019 - 07:03 AM)

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

@  Dekafox : (20 June 2019 - 03:12 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 June 2019 - 12:37 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Is it weeby of me to refer to the two IDW TF continuities as Heisei and Reiwa? I mean, the switchover almost perfectly lines up with the change of eras...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2019 - 10:35 AM)

I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2019 - 05:44 PM)

They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

*sigh* Why does Superman need an edgy backstory? Is it so hard to write him as an orphaned immigrant, adopted by loving parents who instilled into him virtues and encouraged him to discover more about himself and grew up in a quiet nowhere where his more...peculiar...traits never really went noticed because the closest neighbors were miles away?

Because optimism, compassion, truth and unadulterated altruism are apparently, alien concepts at the moment. And the idea of 'Tge Big Blue Boy Scout' is seemingly antithetical to their modern view of an edgy, angst fuelled, morally grey 'Superman'.

It is very sad.

Look, Frank Miller was replaced by an angry talentless alien or something back around 2000, so I don't know why his name carries any weight still.

Frank Miller in his prime writing a Superman Year One would sound like a bad idea.

 

Today's Frank Miller? It has the potential to be hilariously awful, and if it is, I'm there for that*. Hurt me, DC, so at least I'll feel something.

To be fair, the image of rural upbringing as a progenitor of honest, decent thinking is kind of hard to take seriously anymore. Framed from a modern perspective, it's hard to believe Clark isn't a racist, homophobic, bible-thumper who thinks unions are the devil.

 

Not to say that this is a better option, just that Superman is in dire need of an updated, less whitewashed backstory. And Frank Miller nowhere in sight.

it was...almost completly terrible.  There were tons of weird stilted moments in the text...like Pa talked like a 30's hick, but i have no idea when it takes place. The gang rape scene...i'll sort-of accept, because atleast lana isnt a high school prostitute...these are the kinds of concessions that must be made with a current Frank Miller book.

I get where you are coming from, but honestly I think that's the untapped potential in Supes' backstory because "whitewashed" rural America is changing fast. So the concept of the immigrant/alien wanting to adapt to their new surroundings while not losing what they were...has some legs even without altering the fundamentals of Superman's upbringing.

 

But it may be that I'm a bit more jealous regarding said backstory since I pretty much live in Clark's backstory or as damn close to it as one can without the superpowers. I might not have been adopted but my wife was, so his backstory resonates. As for the more unpleasant aspects of rural life...again there's story potential there.

 

The typical teenager weekend involves copious amounts of alcohol and long stretches of road. A kid that's virtually indestructible and powerful? You've got a lot of chances for the beloved modern tragedies that teach valuable life lessons. Plus it'd be a hell of a thing for Clark to find out he's a mean drunk as a hormone raging teen.
