Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

What I got from that was that Black Hand is their possessed version of Hal / Kyle; Parallax / Ion respectively, but not the actual entity of death itself.

At least what we've been lead to believe is the entities of the spectrum are all massive creatures. We've seen Ion, Parallax, and the Predator. There's no reason Death's entity shouldn't follow the same rules.

Yeah, I was initially confused about that issue. It seems like Scar is saying that Hand is the embodiment of Death, and therefore the Black Lanterns' equivalent of Ion (whale) and Parallax (insect monster). However, like others have said here, it's more like he's the Black Lanterns' host for the as-yet-unseen embodiment of death, like how Sodam Yat is (or was, I guess) the most recent host for Ion or how Kyle was the most recent host for parallax.

By the way, the Predator (love embodiment creature) has only appeared in that one GL issue, right? It sorta came out of nowhere, making me think it had already been introduced. So has it appeared before?

Also, Tales of the Corps #3 kinda sucked. #2 was the only issue that really felt worth it to me.

Well, if all the emotion creatures are (so far) animal based, it sort of makes sense that Death's totem would be man, if you think about it in an ecological sense; man is the apex predator.

This is the DC universe. Man is nowhere near an apex predator.

I don't think man would have much of a chance against creatures like Parallax.


If it indeed was a humanoid, then it would be a twisted version of one, not Black Hand.

Where' Solomon Grundy in all of this? This seems like something he'd be involved in to some degree.

More to the point, I'm throwing Darkseid out as the grandmaster behind the Black Lanterns; it's the only thing I can think of that would make Batman's skull so centrally important to Black Hand's actions. Bats was the last person offed by the Omega Beams, wasn't he?

Solomon gets his ring in the next issue of his comic.

Dove's "refusal" of the ring is weird. That puts a whole new spin on the ball. Does that mean all the others weren't at peace? What part of the afterlife were they in?

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Not saying it wouldn't be too much, but he certainly fits the profile of whatever the Black Lantern grandmaster is. The only thing that may certainly disqualify him is whether or not the time lines of the various stories line up.

But, seriously, what other possible reason could a cosmic death force have an interest in Bruce Wayne's skull for? I'm drawing a blank.

If it's not the real Bruce Wayne and it someone else's skull entirely, perhaps.

The only other villain that fits whoever the Black Lantern mastermind is Thanos, really.

Or, hell. It could be a new character entirely.

my theory is:

In the pages of Final Crisis, we see Bruce in pre-historic earth (or atleast that's what i think) well what if, Bruce had children in that time, and there children had children and so on. so in present day, everyone in the DC universe has Bruce's DNA. that would explain why black hand needed bruce's skull, to have something in common with everyone else.........

as for the space Black Lanterns, well that one i'm drawing a blank icon-wildride.gif icon-wildride.gif

anyone noticed that Black Hand is only targeting Earth's dead population??? why doesn't he go to OA and take charge of the dead GL??? or beter yet, why not go to the Black battery, sit on a throne or something and take charge of all of the black lanterns???? I do hope they explain why Black Hand is only tageting Earth.......
