Let's say it's one villain with all the powers and abilities of the original Sinister Six: Electro's electrical control, Kraven's fighting skill and hunting gadgets, Mysterio's illusions and manipulation skills, Sandman's sand powers and strength, Vulture's flight and aerial agility, and Doctor Octopus's tentacles and intelligence.

Assume no bad results from the power mixing, like his electricity turning his own sand to glass or stuff like that.

Who's the most powerful character or team they could beat?

Marvel Zombies / Doc Ock's face turn: Your thoughts?
« on: October 09, 2018, 10:30:00 PM »
So as of Amazing Spidey #800, as thanks for his assistance in battling Norman Osborn/Carnage/Red Goblin, Spidey told Doctor Octopus that the slate was clean between the two of them, and like Venom before him, Otto has moved to San Francisco to start his anti-hero career. He's even getting his own ongoing.

1.) It was controversial when Spidey gave his blessing to Eddie Brock, a multiple murderer. And Otto's criminal career has been much longer and bloodier. Did Pete do the right thing? What do you think about Octopus being let go?

2.) Do you like the idea of Doc Ock trying to go heroic?

3.) How long do you think it will last? Spidey's rogues have a mixed bag when it comes to going straight; some of them pull it off, others eventually fall again. And there's few Spidey villains more iconic than Doctor Octopus.

ICT / Gotham gets mashed up with Spidey's New York
« on: October 02, 2018, 05:17:58 PM »
Let's say there's a big cosmic thing, and Gotham and Marvel's New York end up merging into one big "New Gotham City," on a new Earth.

However, the only Marvel elements from New York that go into the mix are those that are most closely related to Spider-Man, or spun-off from him. The Daily Bugle is there, the Baxter Building isn't. Cloak and Dagger are around but not the Avengers. Etc. (The same goes for Gotham, though I can't really think of anything in Gotham that's not closely related to Batman.)

Assuming this is permanent, what would the city's hero and villain landscape end up looking like? How would Spidey and Bats get along, having the same city to protect on a long-term basis? What sort of power struggles would we see among the villains, who'd come out on top, or which ones would team-up?

Ock gets his "Revenge of the Sinister Six" adamantium tentacles. Can he take down the whole crew?

Quote
Actor Bruce J. Mitchell, who gained the everlasting affection of MSTies worldwide for his gritty portrayal of the loyal, brave and slightly hungover hero Zap Rowsdower in the movie in episode 910- THE FINAL SACRIFICE, died of heart failure on April 28. He was 73. We and most fans missed it when it happened because he died quietly and there was no local press coverage.

Designed by Sanford Greene, Marvel artist and South Carolina native.

"It's basically the firefly, an actual superhero. I kind of based it off of an old golden age character called the fly and I crossed it over with the ascetics of the teams colors and their logo, or mascot if you will," Greene said. "And I made him out to be what you see on the actual jersey"

Current TV Shows / Cloak And Dagger

Marvel's latest TV show starts tonight. Let's see how they handle Ty and Tandy.

I recently had a binge rewatching of the whole series, and it holds up. Damn does it hold up well. There's a ton of extra jokes I get now; my parents used to enjoy watching it with me every morning before school, laughing a lot, and I totally see why.

Lorenzo Music was Garfield. Neither Bill Murray nor Frank Welker, legends in their own right, have since nailed it as well. It was a perfect match of actor and role.

It did a great job sliding educational bits into the writing, without them jumping out at you as "HERE IS THE EDUCATIONAL PART." They were well-integrated and natural as part of the jokes. As a kid, this is how I learned what deja vu is, about cloud seeding with silver iodide...and I was laughing the whole time.

Anyone else have fond memories of this show? Any favorite episodes or gags?

ICT / How many film Spidey's could comics Doctor Octopus beat?
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:56:45 PM »
Ock goes up against Maguire, Garfield, and Holland's versions of Spidey, all at once. Can his years of experience fighting his version of Spider-Man give him the edge (especially with his much more agile tentacles compared to Molina's), or do they overwhelm him? If so, how many does he take down?

General Comic Discussion / Most satisfying villain defeats/deaths
« on: April 19, 2018, 11:28:49 AM »
Which ones make you go "That's what you get!"

At the top of my list, I'd have to say during X-Men: Omega, the end of Age Of Apocalypse, when Nate and Magneto lay a beatdown on Apocalypse, culminating in him getting ripped in two.

There was also the start of Marvel Knights: Spider-Man, when Spidey beats the Green Goblin by slamming a mailbox into the back of his head. Just because it was the first time Norman Osborn went to jail in 40 years.

You guys?

ICT / Biggest win the cartoon D&D kids could take?
« on: March 05, 2018, 07:56:28 PM »
Hank the Ranger, Bobby the Barbarian, Presto the Magician, Sheila the Thief, Eric the Cavalier, and Diana the Acrobat.

From the end of the series when they'd really gotten their teamwork down. (If you want, give them their powered-up weapons from The Dragons' Graveyard)
