General Chat / Do you ever think of yourself by your Internet alias?
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:15:52 AM »
Not gonna lie, there's times I've actually called myself, in my inner monologue, Thanos. It's been my go to screen name for over half my life now, and by this point it's almost as much of a personal identifier as my legal birth name.

Anyone else?

My grandmother just passed away and my girlfriend's father is in the hospital.

...I don't know why this just occurred to me, but I've realized I've spent half my life or more hanging out with you bunch. Thanks for all the support over the years.

The leader of V.I.L.E. steals something ludicrous from Gotham City, as she likes to do.  How long does it take the World's Greatest Detective to track her down?

Damn, it's still my primary messenger.

General Comic Discussion / If Marvel and DC swapped two characters...
« on: September 02, 2017, 01:17:12 AM »
...who would you like to see them give each other?  For the sake of discussion, the swaps are permanent.  Each company can still make references to their old character and reprint their old stories, but no new stories.  Each character maintains their prior history.

DC Drones / Joker's name, revealed?
« on: August 20, 2017, 02:13:40 PM »
For the upcoming series Batman: White Knight, the Joker gets (temporarily, no doubt) cured of his madness and returns to his civilian identity...

...which is, of course, Jack Napier, like I always said it should be.

Haruo Nakajima, who played Godzilla in his first 12 films--as well as other classic monsters such as Rodan and Varan--has passed away from pneumonia.

He was 88.

"The first lady of voice acting," she began her career in 1929, was active until just a couple of years ago, and was one of the last surviving performers from The Golden Age Of Radio.

Some of her most famous roles included Rocky The Flying Squirrel and Natasha Fatale from Rocky And Bullwinkle, Cindy Lou Who from How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Magica De Spell and Ma Beagle from DuckTales...the list goes on and on.

She was 99.

RIP, Ms. Foray, and thank you for more than eight decades of good memories.

General Chat / Flo Steinberg, the "First Lady of Marvel," passes away
« on: July 24, 2017, 04:38:15 PM »
Flo Steinberg, Stan's secretary and letter-answerer back in the 60's, has passed away at 78.

She also helped Roy Thomas write his first Iron Man story; edited and published some independent comics; and apparently worked part-time for Marvel as a proofreader right up through this year.

Her death was caused by complications from a brain aneurysm and lung cancer.
