Think the real hero of this series is the castle architect. That shit is impressive yo.

The castle itself is sort of alive in that it can take many forms.  At least it was referenced as such in one of the many games.  Or a manifestation of Dracula's power given life or some shit.  I don't remember.
Alucard described the castle as a creature of chaos that can take many forms.

And since he was telling the truth about Richter being supreme among vampire hunters, we also know that he was being truthful about the castle.

I think 60s Ka-Zar has a shot

But otherwise, this is all Bane

Nor are arabs likely to go full ebonic, even with all that desert.

We adapt ourselves, without our body needing to

I dunno, it seems unlikely that white people came first, because all humans are primarily designed for hot weather. We have very little hair. This is true even of nordics and eskimos, humans who have spent the most time in cold climates. Our hair is just that, hair, not fur. Which is to say, it's designed more to purge heat than to retain it, and again this is true even of nordics and eskimos. The texture of white and eskimo hair is slightly better at retaining heat than black people, but not to remotely the point that it could be called fur. In short, both white people and eskimos look like a hot weather species that is beginning to evolve into a cold weather species, but which haven't gotten very far in that evolution at all.

If white people had come first, it stands to reason that we would be furry creatures with small sweat-glands. We would look like yetis, essentially. Black people, conversely, would look like yeti's with the mange. They would show signs in their design of being a cold weather species that has started to evolve into a hot weather species, but which hasn't gotten very far. There are no such signs. They seem utterly designed for blistering heat.

Y'know, there are species of dogs that have been bred to be excellent swimmers. They like to swim. Their hair has been bred to be water-resistant. They have semi-webbed toes. But if their history was unknown, would anyone in their right mind suggest that the water-dogs had come first? It is very obvious that these breeds are land-animals that are starting to evolve into sea-animals via careful breeding, but which haven't gotten very far in that evolution at all.

A similar care can be made for humans, which are plainly primarily hot weather creatures, even in the case of those who have lived in cold weather areas for their entire recorded history.
"Eskimos" are descended from the Mongols (whatever you want to call them) that would have come  over from Asia

There's also the very relevant point of us adapting our clothing or surroundings in significant ways that wouldn't require a drastic evolutionary change for us.

Know what Inuits wore and continue to wear? The skins of animals. What other animal does shit like that? Our environment didn't work for us, so we thought of a way to alleviate that. That personal change largely removes the necessity of changing ourselves

What can your body do about hot weather, other than sweat? We can literally wrap ourselves in the carcasses of other things that can handle cold temperature extremes in order to allow ourselves to be able to handle those temperatures. There's no similar solution to heat. Hence the need for a more drastic physiological change

I didn't read this thing and I'm not convinced we come from Europe, but I'm not agreeing with your train of thought

Bane for the comfortable majority

You gotta be one of the better A lists to get odds on Bane

Or movie Celestials don't = what we understand about comic book Celestials

And the Nowhere mining head thing was a nice easter egg for fans and not much more

And it wasn't  "needed divine intervention to stop him" it was "he broke the rules of Mortal Kombat so he got buttfucked"

That was always how powerful he was

Entering into Mortal Kombat nerfs the hell out of him, just like it does Raiden

I think I've seen a scene where the Black Racer and Death of the Endless are both there. I know of one other physical manifestation of death for those connected to the speed force, the Black Flash. Any others?

What kind of exchanges have they had?
Gaiman retconned that.

There was a lot of great humour, Drax in particular, but way too many of the jokes fell flat

But I did still like it more than the first one

Also a lot of great character moments.

It's got Norm MacDonald, which is a plus.
Are you serious?

My opinion has changed completely
