Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2018 - 07:37 AM)

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

But do they search barf?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Under water, the fish don't stink.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 07:42 PM)

I read that at first as "Everyone is a fish...."

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2018 - 06:08 PM)

Everyone has a fetish, I guess.

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2018 - 05:56 PM)

I parsed it as "search barf" at first.

@  MEDdMI : (19 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

But did you get a Snowbombcyclopsragnarokdoomstorm like the US NE got last week?

@  Nevermore : (19 January 2018 - 11:40 AM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2018 - 01:59 AM)

Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

Golden Glider's a Rogue? And kinda alive? Interesting. Considering she only slices people up with her skates as her gimmick before, that's a step up. And they used the kid as the Trickster instead of Jesse James, hmm. Maybe I will look this up, thanks icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, Glider's gotten a major overhaul; is somewhat alive (in a coma but aware of the world) and no more skates. icon-fire.gif She is Cold's driving force in the series making sure she stays alive until she's completely recovers. She's been kinda the heart of the Rogues and is a relationship with Mirror Master due to their common bond of not really able to be part of the world.

Check out Rogues #1 (Flash 23.3) if you want to get an idea of what the Nu52 Rogues are like; Trickster doesn't show up much there due to being in prison for most of it, but the rest are for the whole issue. It goes over the basics of their origins and introduces each to certain extent though Cold and Glider get the most focus. I feel it really does a good job of showing how they're pretty much a family and that they aren't really villains despite being career criminals. (I really love how they demonstrate that in the issue) If you enjoy them in this issue, I definitely say catch up on the Flash series to see each one much more in-depth as each one gets at least one issue to really shine. They're a large part of why I continue to read the Flash series.

Character Descriptions For 'Iris' & 'Detective West' In THE FLASH TV Show


Casting Director David Rapaport confirmed that Barry Allen will have support in the upcoming Flash tv show from Iris West, and Detective West. Well now we have some leaked descriptions, and they've made a few changes to the comic book incarnations of these characters.


Our own Alex Lynch (by way of his site Bludhaven Banter) has come across a couple of character descriptions for the upcoming CW take on The Flash. We saw Barry Allen make his debut on last night's episode of Arrow, but we know that when he gets the spotlight in his own series he'll be joined buy a couple of names familiar to comic readers: Iris and Detective West. What's immediately apparent from the below descriptions is that these versions of the characters will be African American.


IRIS - 22-28 - African-American - As smart as she is beautiful, Iris is in grad school studying psychology. She's also Barry's mile a minute, fast-talking, quick-witted best friend. Her father, Detective West, took in Barry when his mother was murdered, and his father was wrongly accused and imprisoned for her murder. In a tough childhood for Barry, she was the one "not tough" thing. She's unaware of Barry's strong feelings for her.

DETECTIVE WEST - Late 40s to Early 50s - African American -Detective West is an honest, blue-collar cop who's seen it all. A soulful, funny caring father to Iris, and a surrogate father to Barry, West came up through the foster system himself. He took in Barry after his mother's murder and his father's imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports Barry's efforts to prove his father's innocence.


So a race change -- not uncommon these days, and surely not a big deal. Of course Iris West is Wally West's (another character to take up the Flash mantle) Aunt, so can we assume we'll also see him zip onto out screens at some point?


So would this mean a possible black Wally down the line?

I know very little of the Flash's lore outside of what I've seen of him in the DCAU cartoons, the Young Justice cartoon, and the odd appearance he'd make in whatever mainstream media. So I'll be going into this show with a mostly clean slate.

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.

I hope this is good, as The Flash has a lot of potential as a TV show with Barry being a cop; that's something 'new' to casual viewers, a hero that actually works inside of and with the law rather being a strict vigilante. Try and blend a bit of Cop drama into regular superheroics, as Flash doesn't have a lot of actual powered villains (unless they go Nu52's route, which could be a later season twist). Have him start with regular criminals, maybe some pre-rogues, who later on get weapons and tech to try and be on even footing with the flash, with a season finale being a gathering of them forming the Rogues and being a more serious threat to Flash. Save guys like Zoom/Reverse-Flash and Grodd for much later seasons. Later seasons could also have the Rogues realizing the as long as they are tech-based they can be neutralized from just being separated from their tech and go the new 52 route of using a gene-splicer to give them super powers based on their gadgets.

 

Of course, I'd also go with the occasional 'flash-lite' story and focus on one of, or the entire, Rogues showing how they aren't simple black-and-white villains, and have strict morals about not killing and minimize collateral damage and can be somewhat heroic if they want. Which could really make a Grodd themed 'Gorilla Warfare' type arc really interesting as Flash finds himself allied with them to stop Grodd and his gorillas.

Nope. No powers. But they have been teasing a Star Labs...I think it was a Hadron Collider....all season. I'm assuming there will be some terrible accident sometime later in the season.

Yeah, Barry was a special guest star who seems to be continuing into next week's episode due to this episode now being a multi-parter, and instead of a speedster superhero he was a forensics investigator who had a bad habit of not being very punctual (arriving at crime scenes a few minutes after everyone else, missing his train, showing up here and there at the last minute, etc.). He also proved quite adept at his job, being more than useful to Oliver's latest hero escapades and outclassing Felicity's usefulness at times. This was probably one of the more likable a versions of Barry Allen out there.

I'm pretty sure he won't get powers on this show. The way they spoke about it they planned for him to do so but decided to split all that off into his own show.

We'll see I guess.
