Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Okay, years ago there was a thread about who you'd pick to voice unvoiced characters. So, yannow...

Bludgeon? John DiMaggio using his General Grievous voice. Considering they're both skull-faced, sword-wielding psychos.
Nightbeat has to be Jeffrey Combs. The guy already (unintentionally) has a similar color scheme to the Question, and I just like the idea of Nightbeat singing bubblegum pop off-key.
Cannonball has to be Robin Atkin Downes. See, he voiced the space pirate captain in Ratchet and Clank, and used the same voice for the fish captain in the new Thundercats.

That's all I got, anyway.

D&D has to report to shareholders. Pathfinder only has to impress its neckbeards.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

The only reason I hear him as Deadpool is because he's a red guy that won't shut up, to the annoyance of people around him. Also he's always so upbeat.

And I agree, I've been trying to think of someone for Straxus and Morbo is a great choice.

I've been doing this a lot with MTMTE lately. I don't have everybody down, but here some I've imagined.
Nathan Fillion as Rodimus.
Yuri Lowenthal is Drift
Garry chalk as Ultra Magnus.
Branden Fraser or a younger Harrison Ford as Skids.
Clancy Brown as Cyclonus and Pipes.
Seth Rogen as Trailbreaker
Steve Buscemi as Whirl.
Matthew Gray Gluber as Chromedome
David Hyde Peirce as Brainstorm.
Mattew Perrey as Swerve.
Keith David as Tarn.
Billy West as Misfire.
James Roday as Fulcrum.
Ron Pearlman as Krok.
And I don't know why, but Rung popped in my head as Johnny Depp and will not leave.

Swerve - Bumper Robinson

Bludgeon - Bronco D. Jackson. I liked his voice for him in the Cyber Missions.

Guzzle - Peter Cullen (Ironhide voice)

Overlord - Hugo Weaving

Pyro - Neil Kaplan

Fortress Maximus - Sean Connery

Sunstorm - Chris Latta's Reflector trio voice. Being Starscream's clone, he should have a similar voice but given his 'divinity' I feel the 'echo' of Reflector lends itself to the claim.

Thunderwing - Arthur Burghardt (Destro Voice)

Bludgeon is always Mark Hammill to me.

I blame his being the Skeleton King.

"Disabled people donít 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 isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Yes, Straxus is Morbo. (Everyone tries to avoid having Bludgeon and Straxus in the same room. Their conversations are. . . loud).

Ironfist is voiced by Stephen Furst. He played Booster on Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (and Vir on Babylon 5).

A slight bump here.

There's a small conversation going on over at TFW about the Decepticon Justice Division characters from the MTMTE comic. Not having read the comics myself, but being cursorily aware of the designs at least, I felt compelled to read up a bit on the characters.

Reading Tarn's description, there was an immediate spark of inspiration.

Hearing about Tarn's vocal abilities, I immediately envisioned his speech patterns as a combination of Tom Hardy's Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, and Henry Silva's Bane in Batman: the Animated Series.

His normal voice would be rough and unfocused, with indeterminate qualities, like Tom Hardy's rendition of the character. But then as he got to work, it would become sharper, more melodious, more resonant, like Henry Silva's interpretation of the original character concept (IIRC, Bane's voice was intended to have a melodious, seductive quality to it). His normal voice would fit that imposing image that he embodies, but as he really gets into his work, the more musical qualities would reflect his cultured personality, and his enjoyment of his work. Perhaps just a little bit of Hannibal Lecter slipping in there, too.

It was a really creepy mental image.
