after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

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...?)
