" his weakness to fire." i can see the battle now: "you may have beat me to a bloody pulp, broken both my legs and shattered my spine, but i have a LIT MATCH!! whatre you gonna do NOW???"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 April 2017 - 06:39 PM)

Damn the shoutbox won't accept Asian script.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (30 April 2017 - 06:39 PM)

許されざる者よ!

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:35 PM)

he's also addicted to Oreos. so, two weaknesses. :p

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:34 PM)

I remember Justice League left out his eye beams and played down his strength a bit, which I presume was done to help deifferentiate him from Superman.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:32 PM)

There's a reason why he's considered one of the most powerful of the JLA. Only one they can depend on to defeat him is Plastic Man, due to his brain's malleability.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:27 PM)

Wow, reading about all his powers, he's actually kind of overpowered aside from his weakness to fire.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Martian Manhunter can disguise himself as anyone, shrink, grow, become invisible, stretch out his limbs, pop out extra arms, change his arms into blades, do all sorts of psychic stuff...

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:22 PM)

Which is kind of dumb. Aside from being a super-strong flying alien with eye beams that wears a cape and has super senses, there's a lot of differences.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 06:18 PM)

the higher-ups at WB apparently consider Martian Manhunter redundant- a "green Superman." that''s suposedly why hes left out.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:16 PM)

I wouldn't mind seeing them put Steel in one of the DCEU movies, as long as they're better than the last three.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:12 PM)

Really, he should be one of the easiest JL members to cast. You can take any guy of any race who's muscular enough for the role. It'd probably piss off the purists who want everything to be as close to the comics as possible, but you can't do anything without pissing them off.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Foffy's right. I mean, they don't have to keep Martian Manhunter white. He can disguise himself as any race.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

@Paladin I feel like Martian Manhunter would probably be played by a black actor anyway, though? I mean, his VAs in both the DCAU and The Batman were african american. Also, movies are a separate medium from comics.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

He's, like, the least interesting Earth GL.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Hal Jordan is honestly a really boring character.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 06:04 PM)

I mean, I don't hate Aquaman or Hal Jordan, but I like Martian Manhunter a lot more.

@  Evac : (30 April 2017 - 06:02 PM)

Meh, if I were then I would have just used John Stewart as Green Lantern, but I'd also have used Wally West instead of Barry Allen.

@  Paladin : (30 April 2017 - 05:59 PM)

because then WB has a reason/excuse to actually cast a black guy in the movie.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Nah, just stick him on a Wildstorm title, great idea.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:52 PM)

Like, it's nice have Cybog getting his dues, but you could've have had him replaced Aquaman, not the guy who's literally been on every incarnation of the team and is it's heart and soul.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:51 PM)

Why on the New 52, Martian Manhunter isn't one of the finding JLA members.

@  Verity Carlo : (30 April 2017 - 05:50 PM)

You know what I'll never understand?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 05:01 PM)

There are shops with lots of pre-owned stuff like Mandarake, so it doesn't necessarily need to be retail, depending on where he's going.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Every other MP I want I have. I wonder how cheap Inferno is at retail...

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 04:19 PM)

I wonder if Star Saber is still around at retail. I don't know what it all looks like over there.

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Ask them to bring back a real live japanese person for you.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 April 2017 - 04:01 PM)

I'd say "any TF you don't already have" but I guess that's too general.

@  Msol : (30 April 2017 - 03:46 PM)

So hey I've got a buddy going to Japan for a vacation. What would be a good thing for him to bring back for me on the cheap? I've already got MP-36 so I'm not sure what else would worthwile...

@  Foffy : (30 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

*Clicks on link* Ooh, that is a lovely webcomic, thank you. I'm going to have to bookmark this.

You're a penguin, Dedede! You're a grumpy, grouchy guy! Your aggravating antics even sicken Sakurai, Dedede-EE! The only game you deserve is on the PHILLIPS CD-I! You're a mean king, Dedede! You've got Tektites in your smile! You've got all the wrath of Ganondorf, but only half the style, Dedede-EE! You'd even steal a painting of A SEASICK CROCODILE! I think I hate you, Dedede! You pathetic, putrid punk! You're as rancid as a Redead in a landfill full of junk, Dedede-EE! You miserable end-boss, you make me sick! And you can't even keep a pink puffball out of your hair! Three words that describe you best would be "stink, STANK, STUNK!"

they don't kill. they eat half of your face, and you're left with a hideous tumor where the barnacle is.

@  Locoman : (29 April 2017 - 03:49 PM)

Perhaps the barnacle, consumed with guilt at what he'd done, took his own life after killing everyone

@  Lazy Garou : (29 April 2017 - 02:28 PM)

parasitic barnacles are the stuff of nightmares

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:39 PM)

But barnacles don't have- *checks* "The main sense of barnacles appears to be touch, with the hairs on the limbs being especially sensitive. The adult also has a single eye, although this is probably only capable of sensing the difference between light and dark.[4]This eye is derived from the primarynaupliar eye." Huh.

@  ▲ndrusi : (29 April 2017 - 01:29 PM)

He looked in a mirror

@  Evac : (29 April 2017 - 01:26 PM)

He was killed by his own ugliness. Kind of a "Hoist by His Own Petard" thing.

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2017 - 01:12 PM)

How did the barnacle get killed if everyone died from his ugliness?

Available on iTunes, so good a time as any to start a thread on it:

QUOTE
Hearts and Hooves Day: "The Cutie Mark Crusaders create a love potion to make Miss Cheerilee and Big Macintosh fall in love but quickly regret their actions when the couple starts spouting lovey-dovey baby talk."


HIGHLIGHT to view:
Awesome song, brief appearance by Twilight-no other main cast this week, and Derpy sighted at both 3:31 and at 4:11.

Discuss.

First Post! =D

Wait, does this mean Big Mac will get more speaking line now? Also, this does seem a bit of an odd pair up if you ask me. If any thing, I would hope he would try to hook up with one of the mane six. Seems like a bad fanfic got made into a episode.

WHAT!? I read rumors of it earlier, but it's true! Why the heck does iTunes already have it up a few days before the actual air date? It must be some kind of huge error on iTunes part. There is going to be some massive spoilage going on before Saturday.

I can't imagine Hasbro/The Hub being at all happy with the fact that the episode they have been promoting for the last week or so has been leaked 2 days early. iTunes have got some explaining to do.

With that aside, this was an awesome episode! There were some very funny moments in it.

Figures, the one time Apple does something that pleases me it's probably a massive screw up on their part for which they'll no doubt be apologizing profusely. Ah well; better them than me.

Haven't watched the episode yet, but I am downloading now. I'll probably watch it when I get home this evening.

I don't see what's supposed to be funny about that picture.
But i do see two Bonbons, but only one Lyra.
Also two Carrot Top's, Berry Punch's and a red pony with yellow many/tail i do not know the name of.

Not funny as such, but considering the theme of the episode (Hearts and Hooves day) and the fact that they've paired up Lyra and Bon-Bon, along with Doctor Whooves and Derpy, could be a little nod to the fact that those are common pairings in the fandom.

It could also just be purely coincidental of course.

Dunno how much you know about Doctor Who, but he's always had a companion or two throughout his journeys through time and space, so it makes sense for him to have a pony companion.

Derpy was often designated as the Doctor's companion for the pony universe, about as much as Twilight was, really, but it kind of grew out of that.

It's not a ship I like, myself, but I generally don't have Doctor Whooves in my fanon.

Also, I will reiterate, this episode was awesome. One of my favourite yet.

Some of the ponies seen during the song were pretty weird, but this guy takes the prize:

I think the Derpy/Doctor shipping was based purely on their fan names both ending in Hooves. Someone decided that it meant they were married, and it was off to the races.

ETA: Although adult-Derpy background ponies in flashback sequences tended to cement the fanon that she was at least a Companion.

  • Scootaloo's flying? There goes my Thalidomide headcanon icon-screamer.gif
  • Cheerilee Rubber Legs! Didn't the make-ofs that used to be on youtube say that was a bad idea? ^^
  • Sweetie Belle hitting a little too close to home? <_<

  • Well, it's difficult to identify an Apple tree when you're not from the Apple fam- oh wait <_< Cheerilee's expression is priceless
  • Twilight's other book is the one with the whole NMM shenanigans in it. Damn, I want that book. All that history~ Cute annoyed expression from Twilight, btw

  • Sweetie Belle is so adorable~
  • And this is why you don't do drugs~ Big Mac in love is made of so much win. Liked how Cheerilee obviously saw through the whole deal yet played along after a fashion, btw. Fits her perfectly~
  • CMCs breaking it. Business as usual~ The facedesk is appropriate

  • Strong Big Mac is really... Really strong
  • Berry Punch realises that she's drinking too much...
  • Pissed Cheerilee is awesome. Here as well as in The Return of Harmony Part 1~ I love how she's sweet but not without limits, btw. Knows when to put her hooves down, makes her a lot easier to relate to - for kids as well, I imagine

tl;dr: Awesome episode
