I'm genuinely amused/impressed, even if it wasn't intentional.

@  Benbot : (01 March 2017 - 02:38 PM)

That's a lot of shouting

@  MEDdMI : (01 March 2017 - 02:37 PM)

Wow, Bass, your post took up the entire Shoutbox exactly without being over/under a line.

@  ShadowMan024 : (01 March 2017 - 02:36 PM)

The best Marvel issue is, was, and always will be Decepticon Graffiti. The Battlechargers are awesome.

@  Bass X0 : (01 March 2017 - 02:27 PM)

ReGeneration was criticised for being too slow paced and drawn out way too long, yet the Decepticon leaders are introduced and dispatched just to tick the box that they made an appearance. I also preferred the single stand alone stories from the original Marvel comics instead of each issue having like four different plots running through it, which didn't make for satisfying reading IMO. If a writer is writing for a trade, don't release individual issues. I also thought the artwork was poor - before, the Marvel comics tried to have the best artwork they could at the time, whereas now they were intentionally limiting themselves to appear "retro", and it shows. The pacing was the worst though, some characters just stand around doing nothing to progress their part of the story, like Shockwave's segments. In contrast, compare any six consecutive issues from the Marvel comics and a whole lot more happens than in RG1. Furman also fell into his pattern of wasting space world building and pointless scenes when the story had to end at #100.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 02:10 PM)

Even then, Furman's material never really had a huge toy-push aspect to it, other than "here's new character!"

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 02:09 PM)

Considering it was a wrap-up for a story whose toyline had ended anyway, I feel like it worked out well enough. I mean, the last major iteration did play an important part in things.

@  Steevy Maximus : (01 March 2017 - 02:04 PM)

New comics didn't need to shill any toys at all...so there wasn't any push to do weird and different things.

@  Steevy Maximus : (01 March 2017 - 02:03 PM)

The big problem is that stuff like the old comics were produced under the idea of shilling toys...which ultimately resulted in a lot of the weirdness people remember

@  Rycochet : (01 March 2017 - 02:01 PM)

He was hired to write an exercise in nostalgia and that's what he produced.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (01 March 2017 - 01:38 PM)

Speaking of Marvel, finally read the rest of ReGeneration One, thanks to a Comixology sale. I... don't understand the hate.

Works for some, not all. http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Trademark

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 08:57 PM)

Yeah, making it "Autobot X" seems to be their way of getting around many of those issues with overly generic terms

@  Rycochet : (28 February 2017 - 08:41 PM)

Hasbro would just call the toys Marvel's Thunderstrike or Autobot/Decepticon Thunderstrike.

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 08:19 PM)

D.C. owns Bumblebee and they've made toys of her, so if a Mattel licensee can share names with a TF...

@  Telly : (28 February 2017 - 07:42 PM)

doesnt marvel own that? i know theyve got the comic character, not sure about the name for toys though. there ever been a thunderstrike figure? would it even be in the same area as a tf name?

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:38 PM)

You know, "Thunderstrike" would actually be a pretty kickass TF name! Surprised it's never been used!

@  ShadowMan024 : (28 February 2017 - 07:27 PM)

Thunderstruck.

@  Waspinator : (28 February 2017 - 07:25 PM)

They need to make a dragonbot named "Burninatron."

@  BlackMax : (27 February 2017 - 09:15 PM)

I find upcoming Last Knght's Steelbane sexy. A very Skyrim name for a giant robot who is also a dragon? Be still my heart.

@  MEDdMI : (27 February 2017 - 06:24 PM)

I never found most Hollywood heartthrobs sexy, even if they were around my age. I think I knew even back then that the char they play doesn't reflect how the actor really looks/behaves.

Especially since she's the same age as my parents.

@  ShadowMan024 : (27 February 2017 - 01:19 PM)

It's like I instinctually knew that by the time I watched the movies, it'd be weird since IRL she was way older than me.

I am glad they made the right choice with Best Animated, even if it was a tough call this year.

For the record? I'm kinda sick of LMDs at this point. I hope this arc comes to an end soon, because it's feeling a little old.

 

Also, Radcliffe's plan to grant humanity immortality? Death's better than that.

An earlier episode revealed that Radcliffe had constructed an LMD of himself - that was the other LMD in play beside the one of May.

 

Can't say anything about the framework, however, but I don't think everyone went in.

Just because Radcliffe turned out to be an LMD, doesn't preclude that another LMD was in play. Remember, Radcliffe also said that the other LMD might have a shot at the Darkhold.

Radcliffe also said he had no chance to grab the Darkhold. Hence why I'm not convinced he was talking about his own LMD.

As for the framework, we saw Coulson & Daisy Skyquake jump in together. The we later saw Mack tearing off his helmet & berating Fitz for creating such a thing.

As in, it was so amazingly good I'm not sure I'll be able to make it until April for the follow up. Fine episode. Kept me guessing straight to the end.

I really hope the whole remaining story-arc isn't built around Daisy and Jemma gathering up the troops within the framework.  That would make it difficult to tie-up the Ghost Rider story from the beginning of the season.

 

I want them all out within two espisodes, max, and have them all just move on.

I really wish the writers would remember that Jemma survived on her own in Hell World for quite a while, and as traumatized as that left her in the short term, she shouldn't be the "panics the instant things go sour" damsel in distress.

 

Also, Daisy has Rasengan, apparently.

That was my initial reaction to the scene, too...but, upon further reflection, she just looked a perfectly convincing Fitz straight into his eyes while stabbing him to death in the most intimate way.

I think she just went into shock.

Jed Whedon can write and direct more as far as I'm concerned, that was amazing.

 

As far as the returning Hydra and Ward: I don't mind. I know it's fake world, so I think Ward may get that final redemption arc. And this season has been so great, I don't think we're going to be dropping the ball at this stage. (God, I hope we don't).

The latter more than the former, for me.

This episode was one of the whole show's best, and I've been reasonably invested this season in comparison to the last two, which just seemed interminable. Actual twists and stakes I care about will do that. This ep (following from the immediate previous one, and the build they've done so far) delivers -- gutpunch after gutpunch.

Wonderful performances too. Ming-Na has gotten opportunities to stretch a bit from her normally stoic character frame, and makes each showing count. And Natasha ELIZABETH and Iain are SO GOOD. (I actually had to think a bit to remember their real names because their show names seem such better matches now, haha.)

Hey,

Spoiler

 

 

It's been a few days.  I'm skipping the spoiler tags.

 

Totally agree on Fitz's behavior.  I was thinking the same thing.

 

Also, regarding Hydra and the framework.  In the framework. the characters are able to live their lives without their regrets.  Coulson's regret was becoming a Shield agent.  As noted by the Russian, Coulsen is so central to the MCU, both with the Avengers and Shield, that without him, Hydra wins.
