Why is it so hard to believe she hasn't aged in twenty years?

It's not at all and there's a huge chance you're right. I don't really have any evidence to support my theory, it's more conjecture than anything.

I'm just assuming. I think marvel tries very hard to make characters empathetic and relatable. The idea that a woman is just ideal looking and hasn't aged at all but now that she's in the MCU, shes gonna age progressively. Would be hard for me to buy that she didn't age at all in 20 years but then she ages in 5 years (since the actress is human and will age like everybody else). Her as a prisoner breaking out would show pain, struggle, triumph, and automatically explain her absence and why she hasn't changed.

But that doesn't answer the question why Nick Fury believes he could summon her the way he did. Her just fighting an intergalactic war is a huge possibility.

In a way yes.

I don't remember if they had this type of plot in the comics, but I know in the great "Earths Mightiest Heroes" show, there were several heroes aboard a skrull ship (I believe for years) as prisoners. Add time suspension for some reason (either because they are traveling at such weir speeds or because they want to preserve her to study in order to make a Super Skrull or something).

Exactly my point. If it's more subtle, it can be done right. But damn, Marvel never needed a Superman so to force Sentry and make so many stories focus around him? Blah.

Thank you for that scan RIV, I never saw that hahaha. I cant believe Marvel is bringing Sentry back after he crashed and burned so much they had to outright make him a villain.

As far as Carol Danvers goes? MY GUESS Is that she will be suspended in an alien ship and will somehow break free and wake up in the modern world, not having aged when the rest of the world has. I could be completely wrong and maybe AP is right (your prediction may be 100% right, that she's just on the other side of the universe and that a distress signal from Fury makes her come back).

Interesting fight. Probably Supergirl based on how she was able to keep up with a trained Barry Allen.

No magic?! Dayumn. I know he was uber strong with the spectre but without that he wasn't OP.

Without magic, I am giving this to the Defenders.

If you're talking to me, I obviously know it takes place in the 90s hence why i started with "All of this might end up getting covered in the film since we're dealing with time travel and having a "she's already been here" time plot." It seems like she might gets suspended in an alien ship or something considering how she looks normal in the present and the rest of the world changes.

Why is there no natural progression?

What would you consider ‘natural progression’?

All of this might end up getting covered in the film since we're dealing with time travel and having a "she's already been here" time plot.

HOWEVER, I think Bendis showed with Sentry, saying a character was there we just don't remember enough to recall em, shows it's certainly no magic bullet.

I think Thor and Hulk for example have natural progressive character arcs. They had their own thing (in Hulk's case more than once) before meeting the other Avengers. They proved themselves solo, proved themselves in a team up, and then continued to grow even further (as seen in Ragnarok) in skill and strength. And even then, both of them got their asses handed to them in Infinity War (which resulted in Thor getting an upgrade and we assume Hulk will get some type of boost/redemption).

I think it should make sense that a girl who just got abducted by aliens, had 50% of the universe wiped out, and never met the other Avengers would be a bit timid to say the least versus stealing the show and outshining everyone (again, not saying this will happen, just hoping it doesn't).

Debate / Re: Will Ted Cruz lose to Beto O'Rourke?
« on: September 20, 2018, 07:27:48 PM »
Ted Cruz is more likely to win. O'Rourke has a realistic chance of winning, though. I don't have a strong gut feeling about the race, though O'Rourke seems more energetic and focused. Cruz so far seems like he's sort of been on cruise control and then gone towards panic mode.

If Cruz loses, no one would miss him. As Lindsey Graham put it:
Quote
“If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you.”

I'd like to see Lyin' Ted turned into Cryin' Ted, crawling around on all fours desperately trying to avoid getting thrown out of the Senate WWE-style. His face would really sell it.

Being popular in DC isn't necessarily a good thing. The man you mention, Lindsey Graham, is one of the most abhorrent leaders in the country. McCain was pretty up there in popularity too.

He was pretty impressive too. Not just chasing and elderly hitting, but some kicks and he was about to pull a WWE with that chair.

AND he was at a bar right? So probably drinking too!

I forgot he's also Irish.

haha shit, I responded to both of your threads in this thread. My bad but I'm glad you understood lol.

I'll just say this, I disagree with Ted Cruz on PLENTY (war, criminal justice reform) but in comparison to much of the GOP, he is better (he pushes for things like a balanced budget amendment, is against bailouts, supports auditing the fed, and believes in order to cut taxes we have to cut spending too).

BUT Ted Cruz's campaign strategy has been embarrassingly awful. Beto doesn't mention Cruz by name but Cruz's response? Makes fun of him for having "nice hair and teeth", had an entire campaign ad dedicated to how Beto curses, and other really weird strategies.

Please vote based on who you THINK will win, NOT who you want to win.

Texas is obviously a historically red state but a new CBS poll shows that Beto O' Rourke is actually beating Ted Cruz.

Fake news!!!

I never predicted Captain Marvel to take out Thanos herself. My worry is that she is going to become the strongest Avenger when there's no comic precedence, there's not natural progression, only because she's Marvel's answer to Wonder Woman.

Let me clarify though, I have ZERO problem with Captain Marvel being a top-tier character. And it has nothing to do with gender. If Marvel introduced Sentry to the MCU, I'd be way more angry. At least Carol Danvers is interesting, Sentry comes out of nowhere and can stalemate Galactus. Fuck characters like that and fuck writing that ends up going that route.

Carol was pretty powerful during her Binary days.  Granted, it's hard to say she was the most powerful Avenger as Marvel isn't the sort of universe that has an established hierarchy but Carol can amp herself to some insane levels.

That is true. Like I said, I have no problem with her being top-tier. She was consistently in Iron Man's league in the comics. If she gets a slight power boost for the movies, sure. But I don't want her to be the Superman of Marvel where she's the undisputed strongest.
