DID YOU ORDER THE CODE RED?!?

Is it safe?

Are you Sarah Conner?

Shall. We. Play. A. Game?

Who’s the Master? I said, WHO’S THE MASTER?

Anybody want a peanut?

Are you not entertained?

Channel surfed past THATS MY BOY, and recalled Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri Martino both played Adam Sandler’s teacher:



On the TV show YOUNG SHELDON, Zoe Perry plays Sheldon’s mom, a role her RL mom Laurie Metcalf plays on BIG BANG THEORY:



I know there have to be others (both male and female), but those are the ones that came to mind, so figured i’d start a thread, see if you guys have more to contribute.

Showcase of the Immortals / MiTB cash in
« on: April 11, 2018, 01:12:56 AM »
Finally.

Lemme just say, i dont like or even DISlike Carmella, she’s hella generic/cant wrestle imo.

BUT

This was the first women’s MiTB to be cashed in, and it was starting to seem like a fucking joke.
Every time this chick has gone to cash in it seemed the refs couldnt figure out how to ask for a bell to be rung.
They have just stared at her like she’s doing something unheard of.
Its happened enough for me to notice, and i barely pay attention to women’s matches on SD.

Anyhow, glad it was a legit cash in. That at least gives credence to the gimmick for next time.

ICT / Poor man’s X-Men build suggestions
« on: April 04, 2018, 09:55:10 AM »
Prof. Xavier is blasted from the comfortable confines of his comic book continuum and into a meged live action-verse where he ends up looking like Patrick Stewart (go figure).
He needs to build a team to help him figure out whodunit, and get back home.

I know you guys dont much like this type of build, so just asking for 1 or 2 suggestions each i can choose from to round out the team.
Stips are pretty simple.
No costumed heroes, DC, Marvel or otherwise. This is a poor man’s team. Xavier’s got to be creative. Trying to get a mix of young & old, male & female, different genres.
I’ll show the ones i came up with, so you can see where i’m going w. this.

JIM ELLISON

Ex military, cop, super senses, a strict moral code, but no problem using firearms and fisticuffs to take out bad guys.
The kind of guy Xavier can count on to do the dirty work.

ZACK MORRIS

Laugh if you will, but Zack’s ability to temporarily freeze time is pretty damn haxx.

DAWN SUMMERS

Xavier has a thing for troubled redheads housing powerful entities they cant control.
The Key lets Dawn rip open dimensional rifts, which might eventually get Xavier home, and she can create force fields, which is an asset to the team as a whole.

STEVE URKEL

Again, laugh if you will, but inside that annoying little body is a 12th level intellect.
He’s created things like ‘cool juice’ which alters DNA, a working jetpack, a cloning machine, developed AI, to name just a few things, with no actual resources. This is someone Xavier can use for sure.

ICT / Joint X-Team builder, with no X-Men...
« on: March 15, 2018, 08:01:02 AM »
...or X-Factor, X-Force, Excalibur, New Mutants, or any of the gazillion other teams Marvel's fielded over the years.

Basically looking for mutants who have never been "X" affiliated.
Might take some research, obviously.

No more than 2 characters per poster.
If you want, give a reason why the character'd be on the team, or what role you want them to fill, that way i can see how they might mesh, maybe switch characters out if a better one's suggested for something.

Here are my 2 characters:

MADAME WEB

The original version. I'd forgotten she was a mutant.
She can fill the Xavier/psychic/infirm/team mentor/ provides an HQ role. 

TERRAX

He was born a mutant on his planet, able to control rocks. If i ever knew that it slipped my mind. I put him in the same role as Lobo at DC's JLA, an alien bad ass tweener w. his own moral code. 
He owes a debt to Web or someone else on the team, and repays it by joining.

SCARLET WITCH & FRANKLIN RICHARDS


Essentially they may fill the same role, or I could see Scarlet Witch being a mentor of sorts to Franklin which I'd like as X-Men at it's core is a group learning, mutants teaching mutants etc.

JUSTICE

He can be that young idealistic guy every team needs to complicate matters.
He and Terrax have a history, as Terrax was one of the first guys the New Warriors fought, so thats a bonus.

PORTAL

Dimensional teleportation, alien weaponry, and obscure enough for his personality to be defined in any way the writer of this KMC comic finds interesting.
And that 90s retro look is just awesome!

MARY ZERO

With an uncontrollable ability to be totslly unnoticed and forgotten she definitely falls in the student mold the X teams were originally about. Madame Web & SW would work with her regularly.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Lost in Space (netflix)

Won't lie, fairly jazzed for this.
Liked the original as a kid, and actually really enjoyed the 1998 movie.
The premise is classic.
Looking at the trailer, the robot could stand to be clunkier, but the non-face works for me, that's an important aspect of the design imo.
Parker Posey as Dr. Smith is neat casting, i've always liked her.

Showcase of the Immortals / Fastlane, forgot it was last night
« on: March 12, 2018, 07:10:26 AM »
Checked out results on bleacher.

The right guy went over in the six pack challenge. Cena breaking Flair's record is something i wouldnt mind seeing, but not at the expense of a nice simple Styles/Nakamura dream match scenario.

It -seems- like Asuka challenged Charlotte for WM, which like an RKO, came out of nowhere.
If true this leaves that match, and Bliss, with little build up time for a WM match.
Asuka vs either would/will be great, but there's only one of her to go around.
Bliss has been way better in her current run than Charlotte imo, and deserves Asuka. Ah well.

They finally pulled the trigger on the Bludgeon Brothers which is nice.

Orton winning the US title is meh, though it did remind me to change my sig.
That belt's been languishing forever. Even Styles was only allowed to do so much w. it.
Mahal sniffing around it does -not- make for compelling WM implications, as he's boring af.
They should have gone with rapid fire title defenses for Rood via the open challenge, let him get some energy going, before giving him a rivalry with someone as boring as Mahal, and as hit & miss as Orton.   

Those results are the ones that stood out to me at any rate.

DC Drones / The new Mera series & an unrelated question
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:25:01 PM »
First of all, liked the first issue. I'm in.
Now waiting for a Big Barda series to make my fantasies complete...;D

Secind of all, the set-up.
Anyhow, read a review of the book on a site listing recommended comics this morning (cant find the link sorry), and a comment had me thinking through the day.
The reviewer liked the book too, but said 'its a shame none of the creative team is female'.
WTF?
That struck me as fucking stupid.
To me thats like saying only certain creators should/can work well on certain characters.
I've seen it said about ethnic characters too. 
Not true, imo
A big deal was made of the hot shit female writer on America Chavez's book last year, and that book sucked major ass.
Not a comic, but one of the most popular/enduring black characters in modern fiction is Alex Cross, and his creator is white af.

Thirdly the question.
Should certain characters only be worked on by certain creators to bring out their best or is that bullshit?

ICT / Build a new Fringe team
« on: February 25, 2018, 08:14:21 AM »
After the events of the Fringe TV sow have been resolved, Olivia and Peter are retired and married, and FBI agent Boyles is promoted.
Walter Bishop is now on his own, and decides to start up a new team, to investigate the odd and obscure, of which there is still so much of in the world.

^^^so, that's the premise.
Feel free to use any medium that works for you. Not counting Walter and Astrid, 2-4 memers should do.
After all, we've seen cartoon and comic book Walter, so what the hell!

ICT / Choose your appendage
« on: February 23, 2018, 09:23:51 AM »
Got this from over at KMC:

Bucky's metal arm:



Klaue's sonic-canon arm:



Phil Coulson's SHIELD robo hand:



Bucky's arm is the strongest and most durable.
Klaus's has the most destructive power.
Coulson's hand has the most gadgets.

Going on record as choosing Coulson's. I know i'll be in the minority, but i really want that shield.
