Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

As for the rest, I'm not sure if I'll tune into the new series of Deadliest Catch or not.

A friend pointed out to me that the hitchhiking/fishing boat scenes might in fact be part of a sequence where he goes to the arctic to uncover the Fortress of the Solitude - working for his fare up north because either he doesn't feel he *can* fly that far or for whatever reason he simply *cannot* fly that far.

The one thing I don't want to see is another Luthor-centric movie. I definitely want Luthor to be a part of the film, but not the open threat he's been in every single other Superman movie. I also don't want to see them turn Superman into a "Realistic" Grimdark affair - indeed, I'd rather they went slightly cosmic with the story.

To be honest I'm just not sure how you write Superman without it becoming about Superman's friends and enemies and not him.

if you can see this, i apologize for the above tweet, i was young and stupid and had nothing of value to say. please support lgbtq rights and listen to women's voices. that's all that really matters now. the right is evil, and should be opposed. thanks.

geeze. you guys seem to forget that he traveled the world for a couple years before becoming superman. He did it to find himself.

Sarcasm? Because I don't recall this ever happening.

Actually, I vaguely remember something like this in one of the books. Wasn't Perry impressed with Clark because he managed to build up an impressive portfolio of stories from around the world?

Anyways, I'm not exactly feeling this trailer. I get that they're trying to do something similar to the Batman Begins teaser (), but that worked because Batman is a character who lives in the shadows, so you can get away with only showing glimpses of him. Superman is a symbol, larger than life, and you want to see him doing great things.

I'm also curious as to whether/how they'll explain what makes a child run around with a red towel around his neck in a world where Superman doesn't exist.

I assume the kid will be doing such things after Superman does exist.

And word from SDCC attendees is that the second trailer will indeed show off some truly amazing feats.

It was from the 'modern' era of superman. After the Crisis reboot.

QUOTE
After he graduated from high school, Clark then decided to travel the world for a number of years, learning about it's cultures, languages, and customs. He would secretly help people when he could, although he never had a costume or a superhero identity.

He briefly stayed in Paris, where he met a renown journalist named Simone. He also started dating a young woman named Rosie. Shortly after he started dating her, he ran into an old friend of his from high school, Kenny Braverman, who "stole" Rosie away from Clark. The two had a whirlwind courtship and soon became engaged, but shortly before the wedding was supposed to occur, they broke it off. Clark never learned why.[5]

He spent some time in Australia, where he met and had a brief romance with Callie Llewellyn.[6] When Clark returned to Smallville, he began openly using his emerging talents and powers in the costumed super-hero identity of Superman. Clark eventually moved to Metropolis to attend Metropolis University. He would formally enter into college and shuttle between Metropolis University and his parents' home in Smallville. He worked part time as a cook and used his powers to fight crime, though he had no costume yet, nor did he make his presence known to anyone. After graduating with a degree in journalism after only two years, Clark was hired by the Daily Planet. It's here that he would eventually meet and have a competitive battle with Lois Lane.

Yeah, I don't read comics, but I have read the novelization of The Death and Life of Superman, and at one point in the first few chapters he reminisces about the time he spent traveling around the world after leaving Smallville.

Oh yeah, I'm not saying its right or anything. I'm curious how a grimdark supes will play out. It might be something cool despite not being accurate to him at all.

DC has always had trouble understanding they don't need to change their characters for the big screen, they just need better movies.

Judging by Youtube comments, that seems to be the case. There's either extremely positive or extremely negative reaction, but the positive reactions are almost exclusively due to Nolan's name being attached or the "gritty" look. icon-primal.gif

Gritty Batman works because the character was born out of the pain of loss.

Superman is all about love so "gritty" isn't going to fly.

I haven't seen anything that says gritty about this.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
