The thing is, they had precedent before Claremont ever came on the book. Back in the silver age, Professor X faked his death to fight an alien invasion. In fact, an alien named Lucifer is responsible for crippling him.
Nothing comes to mind more than Spider-Man Original Sin. Norman Osborne knocked up Gwen Stacey. Not only does it screw up Gwen's character but also recontextualizes her entire death. Even worse is later when they had an out to retcon it, they didn't.
Power Rangers: My roommate wanted to see it and it was that or drinking last night. I chose wisely. Rise of the Guardians: It's a shame that we have as many Shrek movies as we do but Dreamworks has only made one of these. Films: 44 Made-For-TV Movie: 2 Repeats: 1 Best Film So Far: All About Eve Best Film So Far that isn't one of Will's five favorite of all time: Duck Soup Worst Film So Far That Isn't Showgirls: Zoolander No. 2
I'm officially sold on Aquaman here. I suddenly want an Aquaman/Batman buddy road trip movie. Also, Wonder Woman's line about, "They said the age of heroes would never come again" immediately makes me want a Justice Society movie.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, Power Rangers: Thoughts on all three in a future Earth-2.net The Show but, in a few words on each respectively, Cheesy and dated as fuck but still kinda alright, Holy Crap Balls not good but it has one or two moments, and Much better than I was expecting and I might end up going to see it again sometime. Films: 43 Made-For-TV Movie: 2 Best Film So Far: All About Eve Best Film So Far that isn't one of Will's five favorite of all time: Duck Soup Worst Film So Far That Isn't Showgirls: Zoolander No. 2
1985: Clue (This is that movie that I can put on at any time, smile, laugh, feel like a kid again. Nearly went with The Goonies for identical reasons)1986: Labyrinth (Tough decision. Almost wanted to go with Big Trouble in Little China.)1987: Moonstruck (Tough year. I love Moonstuck more than A Nightmare on Elm St. 3.)1988 - Who Frame Roger Rabbit (Loved it as a kid, love it now. A very odd part of me wanted to say Space Mutiny instead.)1989 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Should be The Little Mermaid for jumpstarting The Disney Renaissance but, well, fuck it! Was almost Heathers.)1990 - Dick Tracy (I'm a fool for good production design.)1991: Beauty and the Beast (Nearly no contest.)1992: Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (I had trouble coming up with something for 1992 so... Twin Peaks.)1993: Addams Family Values (Almost purely for Christina Ricci)1994: Pulp Fiction (Interesting fact: Forrest Gump won best picture that year. I know, right? What the hell?)1995: Showgirls (It's favorite movies, not best movies. Shut up, that's why! Otherwise, it would probably be Waiting to Exhale.)1996: Scream (In a lot of ways, if I had never seen Scream, I would not be the person I am today. On of a handful of movies I can quote perfectly.)1997: Jackie Brown (Because Pam Grier kicking ass is never not fun.)1998: Pleasantville (Relevant and well acted.)1999: American Beauty (Look, I know it's the bad answer but it's still just such a well put together piece of cinema for me.)2000: The Emperor's New Groove (In a lot of ways, I just love it a ton. It may have been the end of the Disney Renaissance but still a classic.)2001: Ocean's 11 (I like a good heist movie. The style and editing of this one elevate it.)2002: Chicago (Interesting fact: I saw Chicago in the theater like 8 times.)2003: Kill Bill Vol.1 (Going in, I did not intend this thing to have so much Tarantino on it.)2004: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Odd thing: The Lord of the Rings films are better but there was something I loved more every year.)2005: Brokeback Mountain (Fuck Crash.)2006 Pan's Labyrinth (Once again, I'm a fool for good set design.)2007: Hot Fuzz (One of those movies2008: The Dark Knight (Still probably the best Superhero movie of all time.)2009: Inglourious Basterds (Oh. More Tarantino.)2010: Inception (One of those movies I can't watch idly. Always gets all my attention.)2011: The Muppets (I'm a Muppet of a Man.)2012: The Hunger Games (I wanted to go with The Cabin in the Woods but I had to ask what movie I've seen the most times or I would just throw on.)2013: Pacific Rim (I really ran on empty for 2013.)2014: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (I was torn between this and Guardians of the Galaxy. Decided just on which one I'd rather watch for the heck of it.)2015: Mad Max: Fury Road (Outside of being beautiful to look at, the editing, cinematography, writing, and acting is phenomenal.)2016: Zootopia (I'm saying this now because most of the films released at the end of the year are things I have not seen yet. Will update later.)
Beastly: You guys have Twilight taking up your YA adaptation bag for the next two years but one to consider when you get done is Beastly. It's the Beauty and the Beast adaptation where The Beast is a vapid and rich high schooler who gets transformed by one of the Olsen Twins into a tattooed, bald, slightly scarred, and rich home schooled student. It also has Neil Patrick Harris as the guy's blind tutor who constantly makes bad jokes about being blind. There are also mobsters at some point for whatever reason. Dinocroc vs Supergator: Just for this scene that is, in my opinion, on the same level of The Flower Shop in The Room. The rest of the movie is stupid humans suck at fighting a Dinocroc and a Supergator. So, maybe a quarter step above Mega-Shark vs Giant Octopus.
