@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)

@  -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

This is a really great show. Like Amphibia and Owl House only probably a more serious (and likely a bit better IMO).

I've been seeing a lot of buzz about this on Tumblr too, but my surgery recovery means going to bed early and that's cutting into my Netflix time pretty badly.

I dunno if it's "my new obsession", but this is a highly enjoyable cartoon.

I have to assume it's not the only one to do so, but I like how this kid show has an openly gay major character and female animals that aren't more anthropomorphized than the males.

The openly gay main character seems a bit forced to me. It wasn't until Kipo was 13 and only after she developed a close relationship did she discover these feelings. The other character is about the same age and I wonder what they went through to discover themselves given they were assumed to have been by themselves this entire time. That is a back story I want to know about.

Please no. As someone in the LGBT+ universe I don't need a superhero origin story for every character who is. I also don't need my cartoons to ham up to me how progressive they're being by doing me the favor of inclusion. The fact that gay people exist is not what needs explanation. In the real world, it's established lore that LGBT+ people are well outside of the norm and society does not understand them, and often expects them to express themselves through heteronormative modes. This is why characters in the real world don't discover their gay powers until well after puberty. Benson knows he's gay because when he has a fantasy of doing a dance number in front of a fawning crowd of cute people his age, they're boys. It's not that hard to figure out when you don't have Focus on the Family around to tell everyone otherwise.

 

Coming out stories, on the other hand, can be very meaningful things, but it's stereotype and formula for every gay character to obligatorily require one.

 

Also this show is brilliant, and my second favorite animated show after Love, Death, & Robots at the moment. It's as good as people seemed to think She-Ra was. The world is interesting and fun, the tone can do silly, adventurous, and darkly serious in even measures, the action is legit good, the humor is on point, and the music is goddamn lovely. So many moments of awesome - that fight in the finale was eight layers of beautiful.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

A 13 year old who is gay is forced, a 13 year old who is straight is normal.  

 

This is why we need more representation, so it's too commonplace to be dismissed as tokenism by people who feel there has to be a reason for not being a straight white male protagonist.

 

(I watched the first episode, didn't really grab me, but I do not begrudge others their like of it.)

 

---Dave

 

ETA: Speaking as a straight white guy, I think we as a society need more than just straight white guys (or straight white women, etc) in our entertainment.  When you're high up in the privilege stacks, even non-privileged representation 1/10th as much as in reality can feel like "they're everywhere".  We don't just need representation for the groups being represented, but also so that we get knocked out of our comfortable "everything is about me and people like me" rut.

I suppose my ignorance comes from a place of privilege. Normally when I show romantic interest in the same sex I never label it. I allow my actions and emotions to manifest my intent. Trying to put a label on my relationships is what usually kills them. So hearing someone be so blunt about it seems unnatural or forced. I would feel the same way if Kipo said she was straight, it would raise suspicion because for me people don't need to say those things.

Honestly, I was over analyzing it. From my experience when people are that forward about it they are usually fake. So it sent up a red flag and made me think "okay, what is really going on with him?". That is my own fault, I have to remember just because I'm used to something doesn't mean every else is. While I might have felt it was condescending, it was important to others that he was that direct with it.

Let's shift topics. I think Kipo's mom is actually a mute. We never seen her, besides that fake illusion deal, and she disappeared when Kipo was young. Kipo's father seems to know Hugo from the surface and Hugo knows he had a daughter but didn't know what happened to her. What if Kipo's father fell in love with a mute, had a child, but since the child appeared to be human, her father decided it was best she lived with other humans and went underground? It would explain why she is suddenly having mute powers and answer a few other questions.
