Trailer #2 for Punisher and finally a release date - November 17th.

Looks great, going to binge the absolute fuck out of this.


Also of note this week was Jane-Thor basically flat-out admitting that She Hulk was stronger than her when Jen started tapping the madder/stronger dynamic. Unless I've missed a huge power-up somewhere along the way, Shulkie is still <<<<<<<< her cousin, so that must be a pretty crushing blow for the Thor fans.

Ock banged Aunt May and then swapped memories with Peter so he had to learn about it from an Ock POV.

Venom doesn't even come close.

Godzilla would have killed Atlas, too.

....Yeah no. Unless you can prove (which you can't) that Godzilla has the strength to kill
someone who can physically hold the entire Earth on his back.

The God of War series deities', according to the creators, all performed the same mythical
feats the actual legends state they did.

In terms of the comic Halloween Jack mentions, yeah, Godzilla solo'd those gods, but there
was nothing to say they were as powerful as GoW's gods were.

On the other hand, does Atlas have any durability feats remotely comparable to Godzilla's?

For the record, IDW Godzilla at least has legit planet-busting EP (not physical strength but then Godzilla doesn't really do strength feats - stubby arms! Over in Marvel he did match Thor in a test of strength and was generally portrayed as a threat to whole teams, was seemingly as strong or stronger than the Thing even when reduced to similar size (with a proportional strength drop) etc etc).

Wait... Godzilla in Hell? The fuq?!

5-issue IDW mini series published last year. And yes, it was as awesome as it sounds.


Is that Batman thing canon? Any circumstances?


Why did Thor just throw Mjolnir at it once, conclude that it had stripped a load of speed of... but then do nothing else? Is Mjolnir good for single shots only now?

That whole scene was weird.

Don't get me started on the Maestro folding in half from a single stab wound from OML either, jeez...

First issue dropped today. Off to a great start, I really enjoyed it a lot.

I've seen this one already. No blood. Not to mention, EMT's would never put people in the back of a truck to take them to an ER.

Is this what were talking about?

Does that really match this description in your head?

"a picture of dozens of dead and wounded people sprawled out on part of the site with plenty of blood on display for your sad little mind"

I shouldn't really humour you because you are almost certainly just being deliberately idiotic at this point, no-one is that incapable of performing a simple search engine function. But here you go, picture and extraordinarily graphic video of the dead and dying. Do not recommend as viewing for, well, anyone really, apart from Letters as hopefully it will shut him the fuck up for once.

EDIT - fuck it, I'm removing that link, it's horrible and not the kind of thing even herochat'ers should risk exposure-by-mistake to. If Letters still can't find it, it's currently the fourth highest hit in a LiveLeak search for "Vegas" and with a dead giveaway title "Aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting victim bodies still in the field (Graphic)"

For someone so keen on the internet as a source of information you are hilariously bad at using the internet to source information.

Dont be pussy. Post it and lets see

I just told you how to find it. If you're so incapable that you can't follow the simple instructions and track it down yourself then it will go a long way to explaining your inability to properly analyse evidence.

Thats what I was thinking. I like how the photographer decided to get a shot of this person dead or dying and not help them.

So let me get this straight... you're sceptical that anyone was actually hurt because there aren't any photos of people bleeding/wounded, but when you are shown a photo of someone bleeding/wounded, you are sceptical because someone stopped to take a photo instead of helping them? Hmm... contradictory much?

Anyway, you clearly aren't looking very hard for evidence, because literally the second search result for "Vegas" on LiveLeak currently is a picture of dozens of dead and wounded people sprawled out on part of the site with plenty of blood on display for your sad little mind. I won't post to it here because it's easy to find for anyone who wants to and disturbing for anyone who doesn't.

There's quite a few clear instances of people hit in the raw footage that I saw yesterday too. Might not be Hollywood enough for your seemingly warped perception of what a gunshot wound actually looks like in real life but it is pretty clearly there.

The simple act of ISIS claiming involvement would be enough to label a brown dude a terrorist... which they did here.

ISIS claim anything nowadays, they aren't remotely reliable as a source. There was an interesting little piece on this on The Guardian's live blog by Jason Burke earlier today:

Jason Burke, the Guardian’s Africa correspondent and author of The New Threat, a work on the Islamic State and other terrorist groups, writes that the public and the press need to be skeptical of claims that the Las Vegas shooter converted to Islam or was somehow linked to an international group.

The Isis claim of responsibility for Las Vegas shooting appears to have been first published on Amaq news agency, an ISIS communication channel which has seen many previous such statements. We need to be very prudent assessing this one. The profile of the attacker alone urges extreme caution, and US officials have already said they have no evidence of any link to the group.

Until around a year ago, Isis claims tended to be reliable. The group used carefully calibrated wording to indicate its degree of involvement of the group, and, if there was some exaggeration, there was limited outright fabrication. The group often provided proof of its involvement through videos recorded by attackers before an incident.

Isis also started quoting “security sources”, which are thought by security officials to be close friends or relatives, contacted by the group, who confirmed an individual’s motivation and loyalties. Sometimes of these appear to have been “interviewed” by Isis after an attack to back up its claim.

But in recent months Isis, facing military defeat and the loss of territories, have repeatedly made claims which have been shown to utterly unjustified. Isis claimed a role in the Westminster attacks in March – and an exhaustive investigation found no link. The group claimed a shooting in a Philippines casino in June, where the attacker was an gambler with large debts and a drinking problem. There are many other examples.

This claim today describes the shooter in Las Vegas as a “soldier” of the Isis, who converted to Islam several months ago. This is theoretically possible of course but seems far fetched, not least because he committed suicide.

Islamic militant groups launch “fedayeen” actions in which death is a near certainty, thus becoming “martyrs”, but they do not ever take their own lives in this way, which is seen as a terrible sin."

A Richter scale of 14-16 or above would indicate an impact event or quake that would be likely strong enough to completely destroy Earth.

Yet another case of "comic writers know nothing about science and just use numbers randomly"

This would probably make for an interesting case study in which takes precedence - stated numbers/power-levels vs achieved outcomes.

The 123 or whatever it was on the richter scale was a scientific measurement by Black Panther, so we can reasonably assume that the author intended it to be a legitimate and accurate measurement. But anything generating that much force would be like, big bang level, never mind moon-destroying (according to google anyway, I have no idea).

Natural assumption would be that Pak lazily threw in a number without googling and finding out how the richter scale actually works in this particular instance obviously, but from a pure in-comic perspective, which takes precedence - the scientific reading voiced, or the effects shown?

No details yet, that was just a preview image. I think it's happening in Marvel Legacy (latest probably shitty event book written by Jason Aaron I believe) but honestly I wasn't paying much attention. Art looks good though.

Wonder what will happen to old man Logan? Will he stick around?

Hope so. To be honest I prefer the look of OML to Wolverine "proper", it's a good fit for the character in many ways. Not sure how much story potential there is long-term for the pair of them though so you'd think it's a matter of time before OML is killed off (although having two Logans would help with the goal of having him on every team in the Marvel Universe simultaneously).
