Why does Calgar insist on leaving the helmet off his ultimately intimidating cybernetic battle armor from Hell? Or do his enemies avoid targeting his head the same way Captain America’s enemies are compelled to shoot only at his Mighty Shield?

Just burn the clinic? No nuking it from orbit? Nuking it is, after all, the only way to be sure. ):D

Well, good grief, with everything else that’s happened to him why should anyone be surprised that we all got Spidey’s birthday wrong?

Yes, I’ve heard of Marvel’s “Earth-X” (though I’ll admit “Universe-X” and “paradise-X” are new to me). One of these days, when COVID-19 lets us and things come back to life if not to normal, maybe I’ll get around to reading them. Thanks

I’ve asked this before, and likely I’ll ask this again ... just how big is Unicron supposed to be? Where does he fit on the same scale as the Death Star (Mark 1 = 120 km diameter, Mark 2 = 160 km diameter) and David Weber’s Dahak (which spent some fifty millennia rpetending to be EARTH’S MOON)?

If the villain of the story is supposed to be Adolf Hitler ... since when did Hitler wear a van Dyke beard instead of his infamous toothbrush mustache?

More than one person in this thread has described the cartoon under discussion as being ambiguous and ineffective, and IMHO I might see why. A mask doesn’t hide all expressions, and if the black chick in the toon had been a lot angrier at the white chick’s snide remark the whole thing might have gone over better.

Because the Type 1 is way sneakier. “Hey, care for a light?” *ZZAP!*

Worse yet: which phaser? The gunlike Type 2 phaser that’s an obvious threat, or the tiny flashlight-like Type 1 phaser that easily disappears onto Kirk’s belt or into his hand?

Just off the top of my head, as I’ve never read any of the books or even seen “Game of Thrones” on TV ... but I think you could call this a demonstration of the “Tolkien Lesson.” When you create a work of art, in the end it’s only for yourself. Of course you should respect your audience, and fans are nice to have, but Read more

Okay, I posted something like this a short while ago and all I got was some snark from a true believer, but I still want to know -- why is DC/Warner still beating a dead horse like “Justice League” into the ground?

Does anyone else find it creepy that DC/Warner is doubling down on the mistake that was “Justice League” just as your 45th POTUS is doubling down on everything he’s done to make the United States, and specifically its response to COVID-19, the biggest train wreck possible?

One thing that bugs me ... I do hope fans of “The Boys” realize that these a******s are the backwards of what “real” superheroes ought to be like? I ask this because there seem to be a lot of fans out there who think the versions of DC’s headliners they see in “Injustice: Gods Among Us” are exactly who Superman, Read more

This might be a good place to bring up “Gankutsuou,” which is basically the Count of Monte Cristo IN SPACE! But what makes the anime remarkable isn’t the way it transfers the Count’s story into a galactic future (complete with giant robots — hey, it’s a shonen anime, what’d you expect?) ... so much as it’s the way it Read more

So the main MCU went with “No, you can’t retcon your past” and Agents of SHIELD went with “Yes, you can.” My two bits: Read more

Honestly, I read about this “Snyder Cut” thing and I have to wonder -- what the heck is it even for?

What stays with me from reading this years ago is a feeling not so much of horror, as of RAGE. As in, when Black Tom is “granted the power to change the world by Cthulhu” he is more than ready to STICK IT TO WHITEY WHERE IT HURTS MOST ... which, for me, ultimately makes “The Ballad of Black Tom” an excellent Read more
