Odin's most recent showings? He beat and trapped the Motherstorm and he killed the Celestial of the First Host with the 1 million BC Avengers under Aaron. He also had a spell lying around that empowered Thor's axe to kill all Celestials. That's the only thing he's done beside fighting Jane and Mangog.

Good points, I had forgotten about the BC Avengers stuff because they're taking so long to follow up on the story. 

I'm not sure why a weakened Odin being on the receiving end of Mangog during Jane's last hurrah suddenly makes him a jobber.

It doesn't really, but I think Aaron's portrayal of Odin as a misogynist fool creates the impression in people even if the actual power showings aren't that bad.  There's also a lot of misconceptions that persist due to previews or out of context scans like Jane "defeating" Odin.

They’ve drastically altered the combat

Good or bad way?

the 5 games remaster for ps3?

Is this the one where some of the games were digital downloads that expired really soon after release?  One of those remaster collections had like an 8 month window before buying a new copy meant you only got half the advertised games.

Issue : Infinity : #6
Fight : The Avengers (Captain Marvel, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, & Hyperion (Sun God)
vs. Thanos, Proxima Midnight, & Corvus Glaive


Decent fight with some strong moments that I hope they try to incorporate into Infinity War or the second part.  It does fall prey to Marvel's tendency to rob the main heroes of the actual win, though, for some secondary flavor of the month character.  Overall pretty good.

WTF is a Jesus didn't tap tattoo?

The guy who played the Green Ranger is an mma fighter, and he started a product line with the slogan "Jesus didn't tap" at one point. 

Anybody who has a Jesus Didn't Tap tattoo will be in tears after just the first issue. :)

Bad showing for Tommy?  Or tears of joy because he has a good showing?

When was his last good showing?

The preceding run, Aaron has just been writing the Thor universe for quite a while.

I would think a Cosmic Cube is more in the Tyrant/Galactus range

I think, as little sense as it makes, there seems to be a difference in power between a "Cosmic Cube being" (ie Kubik and Kosmos) and the "Cosmic Cube Units."  The cube beings did a tour of the cosmic powers in an FF annual and indeed seemed to be in the Tyrant/Skyfather range, while an actual Cosmic Cube has done things like Abhilegend states.

1. The first feat I listed was Hercules bragging. In the letter pages the Editor confirmed that it never happened it was basically Hercules exaggerating and talking out of his ass.

I'd have to see the wording, first, because secondhand interpretations often prove to be problematic.  However, does a letters page hold some kind of authority?  Because I've got some "good" letters page statements that may make you want to rethink how feasible it is to make those responses canon.

2. The second feat is basically a take off the  same feat just exaggerated beyond quantification. What's so hard to understand that if the first one is false, the second has to be false also? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand this.

So your opinion is that a letters page response in the 90's should override a story in 2008? 

I'm kind of annoyed at the idea of Peter Jackson having a large role in the TV series.  I don't think he did a bad job with LoTR but after 6 massively long movies in his style I was looking forward to someone else's take on the material. 

You guys are confusing Thor #356 (1985), which is indeed Hercules telling stories to a young kid, and Incredible Hercules (2008) where Hercules takes Atlas burden on panel during an actual story arc.

Grandmaster is the most well known (and most oft used Elder) though so he probably is the most powerful, though I always envisioned they should probably be equally powerful though.

I did mean most powerful, not strongest, you're right.  Are they supposed to be roughly equivalent?  Grandmaster and the Collector, for example?

Grandmaster (I wanted the strongest Elder of the Universe, is it Grandmaster?)
Shaper of Worlds

The Silmarillion is going to be impossible to adapt well.

What makes that book impossible to make into a movie?.

A TV series, sure, just make it anthology style.  Movie?  You'd either have to make multiple movies about the different stories and eras or one wildly incoherent catch-all. 

If they wanted to do a movie series, I imagine they'd take the approach they're doing with Tolkien's "new" books like The Fall of Gondolin and Children of Hurin, which is to take bits from the Silmarillion and his notes and compile them to create a fuller narrative for each individual story/movie.
