Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

I figure Life Model Decoy. They've been established as existing (Or Tony just plucked that out of think air), and Coulson's not stupid enough to tangle with Loki without having some kind of backup plan. He had enough time to stop by the Helicarrier's R&D Division to pick up the Destroyer Cannon...why not fire up a LMD while he was there?

Or he actually is dead, and the Coulson we are seeing is itself a Life Model Decoy implanted with Coulson's brainwave patterns...thus allowing him to be "alive" and still potentially be the Vision for Avengers 2.

My girlfriend is one of the (evidently) vast majority of people who like superheroes but don't like superhero comics, for reasons that include (but are not limited to) the casual revolving-door nature with which they treat the afterlife.

So her happiness to see Coulson in this series marks her as a bit hypocritical, which she's willing to accept because she just can't wait to see the show.

Personally, my money's on Coulson being an LMD, possibly with the twist that he doesn't know he's one, or at the very least with the twist that his team doesn't know he's one. Either one of those setups seem very much in Whedon's wheelhouse and work perfectly in a show about an organization whose "secrets have secrets".

The Vision thing, I can't put into words how bad an idea I'd find that.

New contenders enter the ring.

Patriot or Josiah X (due to the "what, I should wear a shield?" comment.

Plus sides, ties into the Super soldier serum and Coulson's Cap fetish.

Patriot would certainly be a lot easier for Marvel to subsequently dust off in the comics...LOT less dust than Rage.

But between the "not of this Earth" line and the weird-looking tech that can be seen on Richards' arm (I'm pretty sure that's his sleeve) at 2:16, I'm thinking his identity might not be something we can determine from these clips alone. He could be Nova or Darkhawk for all we know, with that thing on his arm acting as the Wolrdmind/amulet.

I've also seen the tech pointing to Battlestar.

But I'm more and more keen on the idea of Josiah X, who has the strengths of using Patriot, without aging Patriot out of a future Young Avengers project.

Where are you getting that from?

I mean, you're probably not wrong about the final product, "Avengers" proved that SHIELD is willing to do bad for good.

But I don't see any hint of that in the trailer. Arguably the worst thing they do is black-bag the "not a team player" hacker (who has managed to annoy me already with one line).

When you're a spy, you have to do a lot of questionable things for the greater good. Or even for the lesser good, like bringing in a novice superhero and make them get some training before they get themselves or others killed. But sometimes, you have to deal with rampant rewriting of history, and I don't mean in the Orwellian sense.

"We just got a Byrne Notice on you. You've been retconned."

When you get Byrned, you can end up without a history. You're stuck wherever they put you, you might be an alien or an android or who knows what. You rely on whatever help you can get, be it an ex-SHIELD agent, a woman who used to be your wife in the old continuity but no longer even likes you, or...if you're desperate...the new continuity implants marketing dropped on you.

That's classified business. These guys deal with the stuff that hasn't been classified yet.

(Which, now that I think about, is weird. Why stick as high-level an agent as Coulson on non-classified stuff? Can't trust an LMD with classified material, maybe...?)
