    Episode 1019

    The moment wouldn't resonate today like it did then, because death actually meant something in comics at the time. But it still resonates. Now, characters die and come back to life all the time.

    Episode 1019

    And it says a lot about how much wolverine loved Jean, and how special his love for her was. Wolverine has had many women over the years- Silver Fox, Mariko, Black Widow, Squirrel Girl, Madame Hydra, Mystique (he also has very poor judgment) but Jean was the love of his life. Even more than Mariko... but Jean was always with Scott Summers.

    Episode 1019

    My eyes literally welled up when you guys were explaining how Wolverine turned away because he could not face the Greys. I had to pause the episode and compose myself because I was at work. Also, I picked up the Terra Incognito and The Judas Contract trade paperbacks a few years ago, followed by the Terror of Trigon, and they are all spectacular. If you are a fan of the Titans, you owe it to yourself to buy those books.

    So does this mean Batman exists in the Arrowverse?

    Black Panther

    True, in all the other movies it doesn't make sense for everyone to be speaking English. Star Wars suffers from that too, and countless other sci-fi franchises with alien races. Even Lord of the Rings has this problem. The universal translator in Star Trek might be a weak explanation, but at least an explanation exists. That shows more thought than almost any other fiction. The reason it stuck out for me in Black Panther is the Wakandans are using the language of the British Empire, when Wakanda has never been conquered by outside forces.

    Holy cow. I did not realize until just now that Michael B. Jordan is in Creed, Black Panther and Fantastic Four. (I have not yet seen Fruitville Station.) There are a lot of actors where it seems like he is playing himself in every movie. Jordan's characters in those three moves are totally different from each other. That's the sign of a good actor.

    Black Panther

    Obviously. I know the real world reason for this. What I am saying is that in-storyline it does not make sense.

    The 3 heroes of PJ Masks have trouble with each villain 3-on-1. If the villains ever teamed up the heroes would be doomed. So why haven't they? Yes, I am overanalyzing a cartoon my sons watch.

    Venom

    I wish "Life" actually had been a Venom prequel. It would have been a perfect explanation.

    Black Panther

    Finally got around to watching it. Marvel does a great job of making these things epic, and the scene with the charging rhino at the end was funny. Here's my main gripe: Why is everyone speaking English inside Wakanda? It really makes no sense in the context of the story. Was there an in-universe explanation that I missed? This bugged me.

    Yeah, separation anxiety is a tough thing. You hate to even leave the house.

    Agree, especially the way this happened. The people around him will always wonder if they could have done more so he didn't feel like suicide was his only way out. (Most likely, they couldn't.) So tragic. And doesn't a jail have procedures in place to prevent this sort of thing? We are so blessed to live in a time and place where parents burying children is much less common than it has been historically - medical advances, better sanitation and so forth. It wasn't all that long ago when it was just expected that some kids would not survive to adulthood.

    Venom

    Yeah. The first trailer looked promising, but this one indicates way too much comedy. Venom is a terrifying monster and should not be making poop jokes. Still has potential to be good. Holding out hope.

    I pot on an episode of Teen Titans Go for my boys (4 and 6) and immediately turned it off and switched to something else when I realized the entire episode was based on fart jokes. Boys that age don't need to be encouraged to make fart jokes.

    I agree this isn't a widespread belief, but idiots still need to be called out.

    Brian Christopher is the one that shook me. 46 years old. Way, way too young. 😞

    Random wrestling thoughts

    I'm looking back to the 1980's. So when I say old man rant, I mean old man rant. 🙂 They would make a point about how the winner of a match would get more money, even when there was no title on the line and neither was contending for a title. Back when I started watching, there was a primary singles champ, a secondary champion, and a set of tag team champs. Now both WWE shows have their own primary, secondary and tag champs. Yes, WCW and WWF duplicated titles, but these were separate companies. I thought WCW handled the US title better than WWF handled the IC belt, because in WCW former world champions held the US belt. (Back then it was the NWA on TBS.) Being champion was so prestigious that former world champs would covet the US title in addition to the world championship. In WWF, when someone held the primary belt they never went back to the secondary belt. (At least not until the late 1990's or early 00's.)

    OK, old man rant here. Get off my lawn. Is it just me or do championships mean nothing in the WWE? It used to be that pro wrestling revolved around the championship. In addition to the prestige, the champion would get more outside opportunities, a lot more money, and more perks within the organization. Everyone wanted to be the champion for that reason. Wins and losses mattered because winning moved you closer to a title shot and the winner earned more money that night than the loser. (All in storyline, of course.) These days, that angle has been totally abandoned. Plus there are way too many champions in WWE. Being a champion means a lot less now than it did 30 years ago, because there are literally twice as many champions.

    Incel fanboys, chill out. It is OK when black actresses play characters. It really is. https://www.vox.com/2018/7/27/17618954/teen-titans-starfire-racism-anna-diop There, there. Do you need a binky?

    Here's one line that sums things up perfectly: The mob's anger "long preceded the discovery of the offense, and they are overjoyed to have found a weapon that might destroy their hated enemy." https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/we-need-a-statute-of-limitations-on-bad-tweets/2018/07/24/a84e335c-8f7d-11e8-b769-e3fff17f0689_story.html Yep. Nobody in the mob about the tweets. The tweets were an excuse to collect a scalp.

    OK, to make things very clear: I'm not a fan of the Alt-Right and I am in no way trying to absolve them of anything. I've been attacked by Alt-Right trolls and called all kinds of names by them that I won't repeat here. I've had to ban a few literal Nazis from commenting on my blog or on the Facebook pages I manage. I've gotten a few Nazis banned from Facebook. My point is it's easy to point to the Alt-Right as a boogeyman when there is a deeper and broader rot in our politics and in our culture, that goes beyond the Alt-Right. We have a lot that needs to be fixed that we can't pin on a few fringe idiots. That's what I was getting at with my 380-word post above.

    It's not only confined to the Alt-Right. The campaign against him has also been supported by more mainstream conservatives who hate the Alt-Right.

    True that. I'm so far behind that I have resigned myself to the fact that I will never catch up.
