Up to the final episode and her improvement over season one has been nothing short of impressive. This might just be the consistently best season of any Marvel Netflix series thus far. It doesn’t quite hit the same highs that Daredevil did, but it never really hits that hard slump that the Netflix shows tend to suffer around a third of the way through.

I agree.

I think Hulk wins, but giant undead Asgardian wolf makes it a good fight. Probably a good ten minutes of fighting.

It was certainly much better handled than the second "Pirates Of The Caribbean" movie, where there was absolutely no reason Jack and Will couldn't work together.

Yeah, the writers wanted that three-way sword fight.

from The Daily Beast

"Instead of helping Ava find a way to cope (and not necessarily eradicate) her disability, the film seeks to provide a cure. It does so with its own version of “white science,” a term coined by author Carol Clover in her psychoanalytic exploration of horror films, Men, Women, and Chainsaws. It refers to anything considered to be “Western traditional medicine,” usually dispensed or controlled by a white man. The quantum realm functions as this film’s white science, a magical but wholly scientific world discovered by Hank Pym. Once she is freed from the realm, Janet offers to save Ava by transferring her quantum energy into her. She lays her hands on Ava—a technique often associated with tent revival preachers who “cured” poor, afflicted people by touch—and saves the woman through scientific technology.

One could say Janet’s benevolence absolves Hank of his sins [of white privilege], or posits her as a white savior for this disabled woman of color, but it’s unclear whether any of that is directly coded into the film."

I like how the argument here switches gears from the cure looks like “white science” to the cure looks like “tent revival preachers”. Healing by laying hands is not a white phenomenon, and you can see versions of it across cultures and religions. But uh... the word quantum is used, so it’s science... and a white person healed someone, so WHITE SCIENCE!

I also like the take that curing a dying person is somehow worse than helping them cope.

Cool. How were Ghost’s powers?

About as many bullets as WM is carrying.

She might have blinders on with Luke due to being in a sexual relationship. Or it might just be a slip up in judgement. I didn’t find it to be THAT bad, even though it is a clear error on her part.

Claire: "I will NEVER live with anger again!"

Also Claire: "Your dad...the guy that made your life hell? You should talk to him!"

My wife: "...this bitch..."

It’s damn smooth.

Anyway, Bushmaster 9/10. Jessica has trouble with normal people who have good fighting skills. Bushmaster has good fighting skills and can take her best hits.

havent watch all of Luke Cage

But seem BP more skilled. Since while bush master got some havent seem him fight other very skilled fighter. Luke mostly a slug fest type of guy. Got BM in the second fight till BM pulled an ace up his sleeve

Luke is a competent fighter, as evidenced by season 1. He was the prison champ and used his smarts to beat Diamondback’s suit.

BM has more raw skill than Luke, but Luke has better durability and an edge in strength. So while BM tagged Luke more in fight 2, Luke persevered and was winning until the paralysis dust.

BP is skilled, but I don’t see him being more skilled than BM. Panther relies on stats and reflexes a bunch. Without them, he struggled with M’Baku and was handily defeated by Killmonger. And with his stats returned, Killmonger with Panther powers had the advantage, leading to BP needing the train stuff to keep him off balance.

I think he would’ve done better due to his enhanced durability and edge in strength. With the BP suit on, I think BP wins due to the superior durability and addition of the claws. But without the suit, he loses those advantages.

Also, Bushmaster apparently needs to have taken real Jamaican nightshade within a few days to be at top power. Suitless BP would have an easier time with rematch #3 BM.

“Nightshade don’t heal. It reveal.”

So is the nightshade just enhancing innate powers Bushmaster had? They say he was the only kid in his community to survive the killer vaccinations. So does nightshade just make HIM super strong, or would it work on anyone?
