Interesting, I just finished reading a Punisher War Zone issue where Iron Man says Punisher is no Hawkeye, and Cap retorts that Punisher shoots to kill.

Kids probably won't bolt till end of season.

While good execution can save most anything, I think this would be a poor decision for the show to make.

Variety reports that it’s 10 episodes, 3 released on the 21st and 1 a week thereafter.

I’ve found it really slow and drawn out so far.  Do we know how many episodes there will be?

On paper I would be inclined to say Fandral,he's supposed to be the finest swordman in Asgard and aside superhuman strenght and durability he's also very fast and agile.
On the other hand Taskmaster was having an even fight with him during Siege run but I'm not sure if Asgardians were weakened then.

Do you mean Avengers: The Initiative #33?  Not much of a fight.  Previous page is Taskmaster walking, so we're not coming in on the middle of a battle or anything either, just the short exchange pictured.

Just finished the Cameron episode. So anyone else feeling like The Resistance are really in the wrong here?

They're lucky they didn't come face to face with honorary black belt James Cameron.  I am wondering the same thing about the Resistance, yeah.  There is something unsettling about perfect people, sure, but so far we haven't really heard anything bad that the Biotix have done other than want everybody to be immunized against disease.

Haven't gotten there yet. Just watched Jeri go boom. I was actually surprised by that.

I liked the character/actress and was sad to see her go so soon.  Her being one of them was, of course, super obvious but I thought she could be a recurring threat or maybe eventual ally.  Interesting idea that maybe he's on the wrong side, though.

Diabolical canadian James Cameron sure had a cool house.  Might be my favorite episode.

Same here, watching the second.  Lot of fun so far.

The Ralph Moeller Conan series in the late 90's had a Red Sonja episode.


Pretty terrible acting all around on the show, and Sonja was no exception.  I also love how they clearly had no qualms with the skimpiest of outfits on the show, but still didn't do the scalemail look.

Never heard of him.  It looks good.

It will probably play like Tri-Borg (Sektor/Cyrax/Smoke in one playable slot) from MKX, using the "character power" button to utilize some of the switches that MKX's multiple fighting styles offered.  Based on the trailer I'd say Raphael is the main turtle.

ICT / Re: Battle of the Week: Marvel Ares vs Skurge

Its a great showing for Skurge, but a TERRIBLE one for Beta Ray Bill and
Eric Masterson.

I don't think it is.  It might feel that way if you're of the opinion that Skurge's norm is losing to Balder (it's not), but it looks pretty plausible to me for a guy almost as strong as Thor with a comparable weapon.

Note that Beta Ray Bill, the only one of that group who should rightly have little trouble with Skurge is blindsided from behind after making the point that experience is important.  Skurge then goes on to have a good showing against the two inexperienced rookie Thors before getting beat by them.

Also I don't think Ares has ever been given this kind of showing.

Skurge has also defeated Namor in Defenders who always had Ares' number even in modern days.
That the same group of guys that Loki made look like assholes that everyone thinks was a great showing for Loki?

Not sure why it should be dismissed as “well Skurge got lucky”

I don't think it should be, it's consistent with Defalco's view on the Executioner powers.  Much like Ares being somewhat re-invented during his last modern run, Defalco did some renovating with Skurge and the Bloodaxe throughout his Thor series that has pretty much stuck through the following writers in the rare appearances of Skurge or his weapon. 

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Re: Disney Might Buy Fox - AHHHHHHHHHHH

This is like a few years back when there was a report on Disney looking to buy Warner Bros. that similarly went nowhere fast (but hovered just long enough to tease the possibilities).  I feel like Disney's power is such now that adding Fox properties (but importantly not the broadcast network or news) doesn't grant them much more terrifying power than they effectively already possess,  so I'm for consolidating the Marvel rights.
