@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

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)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

KUP!

That track-able Rick was brought up in the multiple versions of Rick and Morty ep (with the council of Ricks and the evil versions), right? But I meant why the sister wasn't the one being dragged around on adventures by Rick. She's older so did Rick bring her along until Morty was born?

 

She doesn't have the Morty brainwaves, so Rick has no reason to take her anywhere. And Rick ditched his family until about a year before the show started, so even if he wanted to take her along, he couldn't have.

Rick flew solo when he didn't have a Morty to drag along.

They seem to be implying pretty heavily that the Rick we know isn't native to the universe we started in. There's been at least two cryptic hints that Rick knew a Morty from birth and is genuinely sad about what happened to him. The obvious candidate being he became the cynical evil Morty who hates all Ricks.

Debatable if it's canon but in DOTA Rick says he's had five Morties.

The way Rick dotes on Beth especially makes me think Rick's original Beth died because of something Rick did.

They are being obviously cagey about Rick's past.  I'm pretty sure we'll get more bits and pieces as the show goes along.  It's already been renewed for a third season.

 

I want Rick and Morty action figures.

It's been a while since I watched the episode, but I seem to remember something with what looked to be Rick's strangely absent ex-wife where he's looking down at her twice in his memories and the second time, her face is opened up The Thing-style.

 

I've been wondering if that has something to do with it.

The woman in that memory was never stated to be Rick's wife on screen. I'll have to watch the episode with commentary and see if she's clarified there.

Arin Hanson doing a cameo was cool, he does good voice work. Just wish it didn't come with fanboys braying about it being due to Game Grumps. He was an animator/VA and had professional contacts well before that.

In the alien parasite episode Rick said he "made the same mistake once but on a planetary scale".

It's possible he destroyed his original world.

A line that stood out to me is when he and Morty jumped Rick, annoyed with how shell shocked Morty obviously was, tells him to get a move on because 'we only get two or three more of these, tops'.

 

That's oddly specific and certainly suggests he's done it at least once before. Given the whole running theme of replacing things with multiverse counterparts I'm wondering if that is where the story is headed. Some kind of alliance between everyone Rick and Morty have left behind to suffer.

The season one opening also had that robot Morty that Rick quickly shooed the "real" Morty away from.

So  wish the seasons were longer. Also, I know it'll never happen, but one episode based on the Chtulhu-baby-theft from the intro would be awesome.

 

In the alien parasite episode Rick said he "made the same mistake once but on a planetary scale".

It's possible he destroyed his original world.

 

Well, he did it twice. Mantis/Cronenberg world, don't forget... :D

What's strange to me is that given all the crazyness that Rick has done with Earth or the things he had played a part in (like when the aliens abducted Earth for their musical talent show), this Galactic Council never took notice? Or heck, why don't they do anything against THOSE aliens, who are much more destructive than Rick.

I am assuming the Council of Ricks knows Rick has been imprisoned, but as we have seen, they aren't big fans of him, nor would they want to probably expose their existance to the Galactic Council.

 

 

 

So, anyone watching season 2?
 
Seriously, this show is like a trainwreck where you can't look away... though by now it has become a bit predictable. If something horrible can happen, it WILL happen. And I don't mean trainwreck because it's bad - it's a very well written and smart show. Just that Rick has to be the most horrible human being ever. He's not even aware of how evil and heartless he is, because he rationalizes it all away. The latest episode where he is revealed to have created a whole tiny universe with people whose job it is to basically power his car battery.... Yikes.


But he gave them life. If he went in there and asked them how many would rather die than do power his car, who would choose death?

I like that Ricky, rarely, if ever has to learn a lesson, and if anything its Morty, or the family that learn the moral for trying to do the right thing.

 

 

That's what I said too. He is basically a god-level being who really feels no compassion and can act totally detached from reality, feeling himself above human/alien morality. Only when it comes to his family does Rick ever show any real feelings. That ending when he almost considers suicide, or the Little Rick episode, is a good indication though that he probably hates himself and what he has become, even if he would never admit it.

Marathoner the second season. Somehow, I like clueless Jerry. Jerryboree looks like great fun, with Beth as a mascot, haha. The car using an emotional defense was crippling (in the micro mini teeny verse ep). Loved the coupled therapy idealized mytho-somethings. Also would like to see Zeep, the Rick counterpart played by Stephen Colbert, come back and match with him again.

Probably shouldn't have watched them all straight cuz they're blurred in my head. The ending with earth being open to alien life really messed up the status quo tho.
