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

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

Wolverine/X-Men
Thor
Surfer
Doc Strange
Avengers


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.

Something else that I noticed about this movie that was interesting: Thor wanted total revenge on Thanos and was out for blood.  Typically, this sort of thing is seen as bad in the superhero genre.  The hero is later told something along the lines of "If you kill him, you'll be just like him" and the hero backs down form killing the villain.  Here, Thor's vengeance is seen as heroic and him trying his damndest to kill Thanos is a good thing.


I get the feeling that they've killed quite a bit in the Marvel U. It's mostly done in a way you can't tell. In Age of Ultron after the opening scene where they attack the Hydra base, Thor tells Bruce that there are many people dinning in Valhalla because of him.


Just the way they fight, you would expect there to be causalities.  I think the team is okay with it if it's all part of the actual combat, but when you get to a moment when the person is beaten, they frown upon being an executioner.


Then you have the 'Aliens' tactic used by Peter and Tony on Ebony Maw.

Plus I would expect this from Thor, just based on his history as an Asgardian Death to him is different than most.

That happened to me. Was reading an article on the box office and then read the comments and bam, nothing but spoilers. Not even a buffer sentence. The first sentence was a spoiler.

Thanos: Hunh. I hadn't thought of that.

Strange: Right there with you.


That's why I like the obsession with Death over this one. Though I just re read some old Silver Surfer comics that lead into the Infinity Gauntlet, and the reason Death wants him to knock off half the universe is because if the rate of growth increases, the entire universe would starve itself out within a few centuries. By Thanos taking out half now, it'll ensure a long term survival, therefore more souls in the long run for Death to harvest. And of course, Thanos sets off to the task, but only because he is in love with Death.

It's not just about the cheapening of abstracts. Thanos being an eco-terrorist is inherently more interesting than him being a stalker. There's something inherently silly about stalker Thanos. I keep expecting Death to go to the Living Tribunal and get a restraining order on him.

Whereas Thanos the eco-terrorist speaks to a modern issue: how far should we go to fix things like global warming? Is the Chinese one-child-policy actually a good idea? Should we forestall economic development that would allow people to feed their families today because it might destroy the world tomorrow? There's a weight to eco-terrorist Thanos' critique of the universe. There is no weight to stalker Thanos' wanting to bang a chick out of his league.


But if Thanos's motivation is population control because resources are limited, why wouldn't he just use the gauntlet to create more resources?


Also, couldn't Strange just use the portals to cut off Thanos's arm like he did with one of his soldiers?

ya know....on the abstract front.....it's probably not what we think but for some reason both my niece and I thought that maybe the vision of Gamora that Thanos has at the end there may have been Death.


I had that thought as well.

In Doctor Who, Amelia Pond's younger self is played by Karen Gillan's cousin, in which the two had never met previously.
