Marvel Zombies / Re: Immortal Hulk
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:55:58 PM »
What happened with Hulk in No Road Home?

He got hold of one of the night stone things that Zeus used to contain a portion of Nyx's power, and is acting like he's going to use it in a villainous way to bring endless night.  Conan says something about him being Crom's instrument of destruction, but not in the literal sense of Crom empowering him or anything.

Lotta stuff in the new Thor.  It has Thor flying around for prolonged periods inside the sun looking for Mjolnir (which is probably not destroyed based on the end of the issue).  The earth's weather is severely out of whack in response to his moods while he's doing this.  The last two issues also float the idea that Thor isn't necessarily a thunder god, he just focused his power towards it due to Odin's mockery of his fears as a child.  Hinting at a larger control over nature from his mother's side?  They bring up Gaia in the latest one.

Are we getting somewhere finally

I think so.  Thor's on the verge of an epiphany about his nature, Mjolnir is coming back into the narrative, and the War of Realm's 6 year simmer is finally ending.

Unless I'm forgetting some Kree strength feats, I think the Asgardians tank a few blasts on their armor/shields and kick Starforce's ass.  Did Korath do anything in Guardians?

I am still wondering why people see Carol’s energy as superior.  Blowing up missiles is very much Thor's forte'.

She hit a lot of people without it killing or KO'ing them as well, having thought about it more.

They have very similar feats, both using their energy powers in a big melee (Starforce and Hela's horde) and then later flying around through spaceships (Kree and Thanos' ships in Wakanda).  Thor is likely stronger and more durable, while Cap Marvel has stronger energy powers. 

With Stormbreaker it really feels like Thor shouldn't lose, but I suspect she's going to look better against Thanos in Endgame.  Until then, though, Thor wins.

I like how everybody has different feelings on all the movies, but nobody here seems to outright hate any MCU movies.

It really is fascinating how far apart some are.  It makes sense, though, because I think there is an element for comic fans watching these movies that is absent in general audiences opinions.  They walk in already liking some characters and disliking others.  Winter Soldier may be an objectively better movie than The Incredible Hulk, for example, but Italy's gamma congregation is probably going to like the Hulk movie more.

It's kind of hard to debate the issue when Feige said she's the most powerful, and Hulk isn't someone you could use the "more skilled" argument for.

Best to worst in terms of quality :
1. Smash
2. Street Fighter
3. Tekken / Mortal Kombat 11
4. Soul Caliber VI
5. Dead or Alive 6
6. Guilty Gear
7. BlazeBlue / Cross Tag

Wow, we are on the same wavelength.  In regards to the Tekken/Mortal Kombat split there, I think I would say that Tekken plays slightly better but Mortal Kombat has a better experience as a whole.  Netherrealm really goes all out with the content, presentation, story mode, and the kombat is still pretty good as well.  I'm also more attached to the MK characters and universe so that probably plays a role in it.

Soul Calibur VI and DOA 6 are pretty close for me, but I think I agree with your ranking there.  Both seem stuck in the past, with the new games being a lot of fun but too similar to the last iteration.

Current TV Shows / Re: Arrow

Kind of confirms it’s Ollie that will die in the next crossover

What makes you say that?  I'm way behind on Arrow to the point I will probably just check out the end when it arrives, so I'm curious what they've hinted at this season that makes you think this.

Game Cage / Rank the current iterations of fighting game franchises
« on: March 07, 2019, 07:58:19 PM »
Best to worst in terms of quality, list how you see the current iterations of these franchises:

Street Fighter V
Mortal Kombat X/11 (11's out next month and extensive gameplay vids and discussions exist)
Tekken 7
Soul Calibur VI
Dead or Alive 6
BlazBlue (Central Fiction? Cross Tag Battle?  Not super familiar with this franchise and if CTB is a main entry)
Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-

Most of us have probably not played every one of these, so do the ones you can.  I didn't include everything but I tried to remember the more established franchises with multiple sequels.  Smash Bros feels like a different animal than the above, but please feel free to include Super Smash Bros Ultimate if you'd like.

I remember, a long time ago in a more active Herochat far away, a good number of posters were convinced he was the equivalent of Silver Surfer.  Of course, people had an inflated sense of the Surfer (imo anyway) back then as well, so that was probably a factor.  Still pretty off base.

Then again, BMB was really good at setups with no payoffs.

Yeah, I remember getting interested in the teased biblical backstory to The Void, set up practically right before they killed Sentry off and stopped using the character.

I don't know if this counts since he had a pretty good run, but Genis is somebody who felt like a big deal at the time and is now pretty much forgotten.

I think Joe Quesada said he didn't like him?  That might have had something to do with it.

I thought that was Bill Jemas, but he was generally in line with whatever Quesada thought so it probably did stem from there.

Also, as long as we're talking about Genis, we can add X-Man to the list of uber-powerful and younger versions of previously established heroes who were big in the late 90's/early 00's but faded away.

X-Man is a good one, yeah, had a long run and was pretty central in some crossover in the 90's but passed into obscurity until just recently.
