They just have to warp the comic verse to fit the MCU


Strange was sorcerer supreme of the whole dimension. There really shouldn’t be “new Magic’s”
Per se

Yeah I got the first two for the XB1 and this game certainly looks a lot better.

Perhaps a (slight) exaggeration for effect, but the gameplay shots (as opposed to the cinematics) do not look a lot better.  It will be fun, but as of this initial trailer (which can certainly change with time) it is not a pretty game.

I would absolutely disagree because what you're saying is stupid and incorrect.
This definitely doesn't look comparable to or worse than the 2009 version.

Your face is stupid and incorrect.

Fuuuuuck off

I'll still enjoy a Switch version for portable fun, but I understand a bit of your disappointment.  The game looks graphically comparable to the last one from 2009, maybe even worse depending on how you view the stylistic changes.  Graphics and fancy game engines aren't everything, but I'd have liked to see what they could have done on a PS4/Xbox version.
....comparable

You agree?  Disagree?

My initial impression upon first seeing this match years ago, was that Jack was stronger but Kenshin was faster.  Jack had lots of strong strikes and physical feats in the episodes I recalled, while Kenshin had feats where he would enter shinsoku(godspeed) and hit multiple spots  simultaneously. 

However, nearly every thread I've seen ended up saying Jack's actually faster as well, so *shrug*  My guess would be that Kenshin is more consistently speedy but Jack has higher outliers.

Seanchan have their slave-sorceresses for wide-scale magic and probably the numbers (I'm going off impressions from memory, it's entirely possible exact numbers were given and I simply don't recall).  The Malazans have powerful explosives, missiles and depending on which part of the series an entire army of superhuman zombies on-call along with numerous Ascendents, immortals, new gods, and the stray Elder god or two in disguise.

I think the Malazans massacre them for the most part due to all the various flavors of gods and almost-gods that wield vast magics and tend to transcend death.  The tough part is Balefire, because while Malazan-Universe magic generally outclasses WoT imo, they don't have an equivalent "reality vaporizer" spell that destroys so thoroughly the target and their actions never existed/happened.

It's also worth noting that "The Malazan Empire" can mean a LOT of things.  Would Tayschrenn fight alongside Quick Ben?  Would Ganoes Paran work with Mallick Rel?  Do we consider Skinner and the Crimson Guard apart of the same force that Empress Laseen oversees?  It's complicated, because the empire was full of factions that thought they were the real empire and the rest usurpers.

Any details on The One Below All?  Another death god/hell lord type?

Haha, that's great.   Looking at the Titans scene again on youtube, it looks like he only shoots one cop in the chest and the other shots miss, so it's probably a kevlar situation and he didn't kill anybody.   His gleeful breaking of the last cop's back is nuts.  Here's the scene if you want to check it out:

Did anybody see the end of the Jason Todd episode?  Jason straight up killed most of those cops right?  Sometimes it's hard to tell because the show had Dick seem to kill criminals but then later act like he hadn't.
 They were just, I don't know, severely maimed/crippled or something. 

Jason shooting several cops, caving the face in of one of them on the pavement, and breaking the back/neck of another seems like pretty straightforward murder but Dick just kinda lets him walk away so I'm not sure.

If Tony has his nano-tech suits, he wins.  He was a beast with that thing.

Definitely. Maybe mk.3 armor Iron Man loses.

I've got a question for you guys, and it's entirely subjective so I'm just looking to see people's preferences.  This will be the fifth project Disney does that largely eschews the force and lightsabers (Rogue One, Solo, Resistance cartoon, The Mandalorian live action TV series, and now Cassian Andor's).  Do you want/like that?

I know there was a push from certain entertainment sites years ago to do projects without Jedi/Sith style trappings, and I agreed with the idea at the time.  I kind of feel like we're going too far down that path now, though.  Thoughts?

I don't mind at all. Some of my favorite books in the old EU had very little to do with the Force (The Lando Calrissian Adventures, The Han Solo Trilogy), but I'm not sure if that's a good choice for a visual medium.

This sentiment is why I was initially okay with it. I think my question at this point is more of a “is this too much” rather than “should it ever happen.”  I personally think that yes, we should have some, but 3 tv series and multiple movies without Star War’s signature element is pushing it.

It's a good way to expand the franchise.  The drawback is that, in live action, Star Wars often looks like your typical sci-fi show/movie unless we see some lightsabers.

Yeah, that’s kinda my feeling, that the force/lightsabers are what set Star Wars apart from other (often much better) sci fi.

You're a paranoid wreck.  It's not a debate thread, despite your frequent attempts to make it so, and as such I wasn't looking to prove anything.  There was discussion of Loki's plan, so I provided the scan.
