I never said obscure. Star Trek is also a phenomenon unto itself with an almost 60-year (on and off) history on major network television and major motion pictures, and yet I still have people give me a “oh, you’re one of THOSE people” vibe when they ask me if I like Star Trek (I’m not exaggerating either; I literally… Read more
You’re right, I did forget to mention that.
I thoroughly enjoyed Runaways, but it uses Back to the Future time travel (complete with the time travellers disappearing after altering their own past) and therefore it doesn’t fit with the rules established by the MCU. And due to the crossover unfortunately that PROBABLY means that Cloak & Dagger don’t fit with the… Read more
Sounds like “Sir I’m sorry” to me
Frank definitely would’ve killed the Flag-Smashers.
I think that just because “ideal vs reality” is a theme, doesn’t mean that theme has to be straightforward. Sam points out that you can’t just slap labels on people and decide that means you don’t have to consider their point of view anymore. He mentions a few labels: “terrorist” and “thug” being two.

The concept of a “Millennial” is just not scientifically compelling. Most generations are defined by their relationship to a major global event. The Lost Generation died in droves in WW1, the Greatest Generation took part in WW2, the Silent Generation are the people who lived through but were generally too young to… Read more
Her father is Jamaican and her mother is Irish. You seem to be assuming that a black parent and a white parent will have a black-looking baby, but that’s not necessarily how genetics works. The human race comes in all kinds of varieties. This man is black and albino:
He had just saved their lives.
Like Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
I think it absolutely SHOULD have been asked after 9/11. Because there’s certainly a reason several Middle Eastern dudes travelled halfway across the planet to kill people they’d never met, and “they hate our freedom” wasn’t it. If you don’t understand where a problem’s coming from you can’t permanently solve it, just… Read more
The MCU is about superheroes which means there are some cliches that it uses. One of its most-used tropes is the wise moral compass whose death is a defining moment for another character. They’ve been pretty diverse with it: middle eastern male (Yinsen), white male (Erskine, Uncle Ben), white female (Mar-Vell, the… Read more
Eventually we’ll have enough Mortal Kombat movies/shows that each handle SOME parts excellently that we’ll be able to edit them together to make a single movie that actually follows the lore. It’ll have 1995 Johnny Cage and 2021 Kano, that’s for sure. Probably 1995 Shang Tsung and a combination of 1995 and 2021 Goro… Read more
