DC Drones / Re: Batman #50 Spoilers

It’s a shame too, I thought the issues leading up to it were really good.

One thing I can't stand is that if anyone has a legitimate criticism of something, they are automatically labeled a racist, sexist, or homophobic.

I read an article about the white privileged male fan base for Star Wars being upset over the casting and new direction of the franchise. But every example they gave of the harassment wasn't directed at their gender or race (at least in the article I read). One was about Daisy posting something about gun control, so obviously the poster was sexist. The biggest complaint I have with the new Star Wars is that Rey is a bit of a Mary Sue and that they seem to be tearing down everything that came before.

As far as making men more effeminate, that's something else that I hate and has been happening for a long time especially in tv. Just look at the male leads in most sitcoms, especially Everybody Loves Raymond. They have no spine and are used for comedic purposes.

I've been wanting to read Thor for a while. I liked the initial arc by Aaron with Gorr the god butcher but fell out from reading during the Malekith story line. I decided to just find a jumping on point and go for it so I started with issue 700. I don't know if I was being influenced by reading this thread but I can definitely see the points being made.

Yeah, I knew it wasn't in a Bendis comic that it started happening. I brought it up here because I thought of it as a general Superman topic. It was in the Action Comics 1000 issue that introduced Bendis' Man of Steel series. And since that issue was kind of a mark for a jumping on point for a new direction, and Man of Steel is supposed to be kind of setting the new focus, I kind of associated Bendis with the cause of it.

So why did they start trending Luthor back to a villain? Over the last few years I felt Jurgens had done a great job of developing him away, and now it seems it's been switched back. He hasn't gone full villain like before, but whatever little trust the two had built seems to be gone. And Superman just writing Lex off as evil and not capable of change in the Superman Special seems very un Superman of him.

Marvel Zombies / Re: Monica Rambeau's best name?

I always liked Photon. Mostly because I like the word. Rolls off the tongue.

Genis will always be my Captain Marvel.

Genis is my favorite too.

Ms. Marvel is one instance I'm fine with. I thought the story and everything made sense when I read the first few arcs. I like that she decided to take up a vacant title and had a learning curve to go through. The only reason I stopped reading was it just got lost in the shuffle and I wasn't a fan of her power set. Once I thought about reading it again, it had been to long.

Also, what's particularly irksome about this crop of comic book SJWs is that they're completely ignorant of comic book history, or at least pretend to be. They think that comic books were strictly the purview of straight white men until they came along to save them, which is utter bullshit, and disregards the contributions of a general of creators and characters.

Rufio has so far said exactly how I felt in a manner more capable then I ever could. I don’t mind diversity in comics, but when I feel like it’s part of some larger idealogic push, I get turned off by it. So many characters being changed at once made it pretty obvious that it wasn’t entertainment driven.

I read Thor for a bit, but got behind and then all the event tie ins, minis, and relaunches I just gave up.

I gave Cho Hulk a chance, but pretty quickly knew it wasn’t for me.

Spider-Man at this time also went south for me as did Deadpool.

It was around this time that I pretty much went to just Doc Strange and Silver Surfer, and then Steve Rogers Cap when it came out.

Interesting article comparing the teams of Jordan and Lebron.

Just finished Deadpool. It was a lot better then I thought it would be.

Seeing what I should pick up considering I am a...

Doc Strange

I read Silver Surfer too, and enjoyed it greatly. I hate that it ended

Other titles that I read would be Doc Strange, Daredevil, and Captain America.

I want to read Thor, but got so far behind that I wouldn't know where to start. And there seems to be so many different Thors going on that it's a bit confusing.

I've gone back and gotten some Deadpool and Spider-Man (not the team up title) and trying to give them a try. Deadpool has been my favorite character since around 2000, but the recent over exposure has ruined him for me.

Have they set a release date yet? The only thing I've seen is 2018. I need some Daredevil after watching how bad season 2 of Jessica Jones was.

Well, the new embassy's going fine with having numerous deaths going on and the US not getting a damn thing out of it.

And let's see how North Korea is going.


Hm. Just like every time NK wants to talk peace they pull this...and the Trump administration was surprised. But hey, let's give this man a Nobel Peace Prize. :)

It wouldn't surprise me if North Korea set up fake peace talks just so they could pull out later because of Trump and damage him even more internationally.

Yeah, people are REALLY altering the word "Disastrous" to mean "Mildly annoying for a while".

But hell, I can do that, too.

Dan Slott on Spider-Man.

I liked his Superior Spidey, but when Peter came back and became a newer version of old Tony Stark I lost interest. A friend told me that it got better, so I'm gonna try and give it a shot.

Chuck Austen's run on Action Comics was really bad. They ended up firing him and getting someone to come in under a pen name to finish the last two issues because they couldn't find anyone else.

It was the editor Eddie berganza iirc

I read that it was an editor, but the source I read wasn't sure. And no one wanted to associate their name to it.
