  1. Everything Marvel

    I know the rights to Namor were wonky at one point. I’m not sure if they’ve reverted or not.
  2. What games are you currently playing?

    An addendum to this last post: I just encountered three shinies in a row, followed by a Palkia while wormhole running. This is insane.
  3. Marvel Comics Discussion Thread

    What really sucks is that Cebulski actually has brought in a ton of Asian talent.
  4. Everything Marvel

    The depiction of Peter’s Spider-Sense is fantastic.
  5. Everything Marvel

    Trailer. !!!
  6. What games are you currently playing?

    Pokémon Ultra Moon: If you’re a hardcore Pokémon fan (like me) or if you skipped regular Sun and Moon last year, this is fantastic. The difficulty has been ramped up and the story changes are really, really cool. The added features like Wormhole Running, and surfing from island to island are tremendously fun. Team Rainbow Rocket in the postgame is a pure nostalgia bomb, too. That said, there isn’t a massive amount of updated content. If you didn’t care for Sun and Moon, this won’t change your mind.
  7. JLA movie news

    Saw it today. Liked it, didn’t love it. A lot of the set up stuff was rough, but after Superman hit the scene, it was fantastic. Not a fan of Barry, especially given that we’ve seen his story done so well recently on TV. But, overall, it felt like a big step in the right direction, especially in the Superman Department That said, I saw it in an empty theatre with my wife, literally just the two of us. So, I’m not sure word of mouth is great. I do have to mention one huge mark out moment:
  8. In-universe conspiracy theories

    There is no Themiscyria. Diana is the product of a Captain America style super soldier project launched in WWII. Most of her Greek enemies/allies are failed attempts to replicate her. Especially Ares, as introducing the Y chromosome drives his aggression totally out of control.
  9. In-universe conspiracy theories

    The Fantastic Four are USSR cosmonauts who defected after being disfigured.
  10. In-universe conspiracy theories

    Lex Luthor built Superman in a lab to boost his own defense contracts.
  11. Marvel Comics Discussion Thread

    I’m happily shocked. But I’m shocked.

    https://www.newsarama.com/37418-axel-alonso-out-cb-cebulski-in-as-marvel-editor-in-chief.html Axel is out. Your new EIC is... CB Cebulski... wait. What?
  13. Thor: Ragnarok

    Also, can I be a little pissed that we got next to zero Hiddleston/Cumberbatch interaction?
  14. Thor: Ragnarok

    And yes, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Jeff Goldblum are all very funny guys. I loved Hemsworth In Ghostbusters. Goldblum has made a second career out of being weird and funny. You know who else is a very funny guy? Robert DeNiro. I still don’t want to see him in a comedy. Thor doesn’t need to be funny. He needs to be badass and wreck stuff with his hammer like he’s in a Dio music video. The opening with him destroying Sutur’s forces to “The Immigrant Song”? That’s the perfect Thor movie. It’s like Waiti knew exactly what to do, but decided to throw us a curveball. It was still pretty good, but it could have been so much better.
  15. Thor: Ragnarok

    I Fuckin’ hope so. That said, I liked this. Didn’t love it. I liked the idea of Shakespearean high drama in the MCU and I thought the first Thor did a nice job with that. This was a Guardians movie. Not to say I don’t love the Guardians flicks, or that this didn’t work. But it wasn’t a Thor film. This was a Hulk movie or a Herc movie.
  16. Batman: The Brave and the Bold

    My son shit a literal brick when I showed him this trailer.
  17. New Mutants

    I'm confused as to the subject matter, but I'm very interested in the cast and concept. (Arya Fucking Stark).
  18. The Defenders

    Marvel and Netflix join forces for Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, culminating in "The Defenders." Daredevil starts in 2015.
  19. Game of Thrones

    Not remotely safe for work. Mild spoilers. But amazing: A Supercut of All of The Hound's Insults.
  20. Game of Thrones

  21. Episode 972

    NICE! I mean, not a huge fan of the book, but awesome idea, Mike.
  22. DuckTales

    I caught St. Canard, because of course I did, but missed the other two. Nice.
  23. Marvel Comics Discussion Thread

    Ugh. Fuck that.
  24. Deadpool 2

    First look at Brolin as Cable. I rescind previous reservations.
