ICT / Article: 8 heroes the MCU made too strong, 7 too weak
« on: April 01, 2018, 01:07:52 AM »
What do you guys think about this list of 15 MCU characters which the author feels were made too strong/weak compared to their comic counterparts?


Here's the list for quick reference, you can click the link for their reasoning:

15.  Too Strong - Star-Lord
14.  Too Weak - Drax
13.  Too Strong - Black Panther
12.  Too Weak - Luke Cage
11.  Too Strong - Daredevil
10.  Too Weak - Thor
9.    Too Strong - Captain America
8.    Too Weak - Iron Fist
7.    Too Strong - Elektra
6.    Too Weak - Scarlet Witch
5.    Too Strong - Vision
4.    Too Weak - Gamora
3.    Too Strong - Winter Soldier
2.    Too Weak - Medusa
1.    Too Strong - Punisher

Drax being too weak is correct, but the author's wrong about Black Panther being too strong imo.  Some of these get complicated because Vision, for example, feels higher tier in the MCU than he generally does in the comics.  At the same time, he doesn't really do anything Vision shouldn't be able to with his powers.

This is from 3 days ago, but I just came across it.  Looks like they're redefining how the stones work in the comics.  Also, it's hard to break the habit of automatically typing "gems" instead of "stones."

Quote from: Marvel
Who Holds Infinity? Find Out With the INFINITY CIRCUIT!

Separately, they’re all-powerful. Together, their power is limitless. To help you prepare for the biggest Infinity epic yet, Marvel is excited to present INFINITY CIRCUIT: the guide that will make YOU the master of the Infinity Stones, just in time for INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1!

Serving as a handy guide designed to show which stones our mighty Marvel heroes currently hold at the start of INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1, the INFINITY CIRCUIT also provides a description of their specific power, detailing how they can be used to rule the universe. Mini-posters will be available in comic shops along with the release of INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1 on March 7th, but fans can download the INFINITY CIRCUIT right now, and get started mapping out the power! (Retailers can find a file on the Diamond retailer page.)


Disney has said they plan for a Star Wars movie to come out every year for at least the next ten years, so would you like it if some of the side anthology films were done in Infinities style? 

Star Wars Infinities was basically the Star Wars equivalent of Marvel's What If series.  They would change a certain event (like Luke's shot failing to destroy the Death Star) and then explore the changes this would have going forward.  For clarity, I'm not saying they would actually adapt the stories in the Star Wars Infinities comics, just use the concept of out of continuity and alternate takes on past SW events.

Would you personally like it?

Would general audiences understand and/or accept it?

ICT / Star Wars fights
« on: December 24, 2017, 03:51:59 PM »
Qui-Gon Jinn vs. TPM Maul - Maul's lightsaber is single-bladed like when he fought Obi-Wan at the end of Episode I.

Yoda vs. Sidious - neither have a lightsaber.

Chirrut Imwe vs. an Inquisitor - Chirrut's staff can block a lightsaber for this fight.

Jango Fett vs. Kylo Ren

ICT / Lightsaber vs Force
« on: December 24, 2017, 02:15:27 PM »
Inspired by this with Yoda:


Ep III versions: Obi-Wan with Lightsaber vs. Darth Sidious without a lightsaber

Ep II Obi-Wan with vs. Mace Windu w/out

Qui-Gon with vs. Dooku w/out

ICT / Rey vs Chirrut Imwe

Star Wars fight, both get their staff.  No lightsaber for Rey.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Star Wars: The Last Jedi - *SPOILERS*
« on: December 10, 2017, 05:01:20 PM »
The spoilers coming in after the world premiere yesterday are sparse but major., DO NOT continue unless you want to know things about the new movie before it opens this week.  There is some doubt the spoilers are real, so the following is not certain.

Edited to add some space for the following spoilers.

-Rey parent's are apparently revealed to be random space junkers.  The twist is that her parents are unimportant nobodies.

-Rey and Kylo apparently join together briefly at the end to kill Snoke.  Luke Skywalker is somehow involved in this from afar and dies in the conflict.  Trying to stitch a sequence of events together suggests that Snoke has Rey hostage -> Kylo "aids" Rey and they take out Snoke -> Luke sends a force projection of himself to stop Kylo from killing Rey and somehow dies in the process via "force draining."

You guys think these are real?  Do you like them if they are?  Feel free to put anything you've found as the day will likely continue to trickle out new spoilers and confirm or debunk the existing ones.

Marvel Zombies / Captain Marvel Power-Up

How strong is Carol now, and was it an in-universe power-up or did they just start writing her stronger?

General Comic Discussion / Gimmick covers

Do you like them?  Do you want to see hologram covers make a comeback to go along with the thousand different variant covers that are currently the rage? 

ICT / MCU Luke Cage vs Ghost Rider

Netflix Cage vs. Agents of Shield Ghost Rider.

ICT / Does Juggernaut have pressure points?
« on: August 19, 2017, 01:39:30 PM »
I would think he doesn't, or rather they would be invulnerable to exploitation, but comics are weird.  Has this ever come up?

ICT / TV: Arya vs Brienne
« on: August 08, 2017, 11:09:51 PM »
Show version.  Here's their recent sparring session from Sunday's episode (*spoilers* of course):


There's a lot of opinions on what this "fight" demonstrates, so who do you think wins?

ICT / Ravager (Rose Wilson) vs.
« on: July 11, 2017, 08:10:42 PM »
Trying to get a sense of Ravager.  How does she do vs. the following.  This is not a gauntlet.

Storm without powers
Batgirl (Babs)
Batgirl (Cassie)
