I agree with AP, it’s the MCU which has seen a boost in power level and ability.

Comics is just comics. If anything comics have had a gradual but noticeable increase in power as well.

RIH, Aretha.

Was she the GOAT??

No, I’d put Diana Ross and Whitney Houston above her. At least as far as their songs go.

Red’s spores aren’t going to be a threat to Superman. He’s too powerful for them to take him down quickly, and he’ll use his various superpowers to negate them - supervision to see the spores, superbreath to blow them away/onto Red’s allies, superspeed to make a vortex to blow them into space, etc. He’ll tie Red’s tentacles into a bow.

Vector has hurt the Hulk, like in that famous feat from Peter David’s run, but the Hulk has made a point of marching straight into Vector’s blasts. Superman will just fly around them.

Ulik is too one-dimensional.

Sinister is the real threat, as his scientific ability may let him prep specifically for Superman.

She's a garbage actress but she's fucking Meryl Streep by CW standards

I was think that as well. Their superhero shows, at least.

It's kinda funny they gave her their blessing though if the consensus is right that she's a bad actor.

I was thinking the same thing.

Can they? Yes, with some prep and working at their absolute best. Will they? Probably not.
Superman, 8/10, at least.

In comics, Desthstroke would win... but the MUTUAL RESPECT would be enormous.

D&C and his followers have come out in favor of her casting, fwiw. I have seen the choice criticized by some regular conservative pundits who don’t read comics and don’t know Batwoman is a lesbian.

^^^ Wasn’t she harassed off of social media by SJW fans who said she wasn’t gay enough and/or Jewish enough?

Debate / Re: Is the USA Different? Why do Americans need guns?
« on: August 12, 2018, 10:33:33 AM »
No. Just, no. 92% of Americans want gun-control. There isn't a "gun culture" in America. There is gun-manufacturer control over our politicians, leading to the greater prevalence of guns and gun-violence. Quite trying to come up with a cultural explanation when the reality is all about the money.

“Gun control” is a nebulous term and using it in polls will lead to useless data. A poll that asks “Would you rather have common sense gun control, or completely unrestricted access to all types of firearms?” will get you a majority of people choosing the former, but when you ask them what type of gun control they want, things break down. America already has gun control, the level of which varies from state to state.

It's cool to see such enthusiastic fans.

Don't care, I don't watch the Oscars. The only reason I like them is because the screening DVDs they send to judges get leaked.

It's definitely a problematic issue, but do we have any choice but to push ahead with the best science we can do?

I'm not sure I understand your implication of urgency? Is there really some burning need to discover if there is a correlation with melanin content or noses designed for low/high humidity and an extra couple of people out of every hundred-thousand being geniuses or idiots?

If there's any urgency, it's that other countries (China) will be researching the genetic basis of intelligence full speed ahead, while we may hold off from doing so because of fears the knowledge will be misused or misinterpreted.

Intelligence is too complex a trait to be tied to any specific gene, but if a gene cluster can be identified that can be manipulated to increase the IQ of the progeny of a person by 10 points, it would be pretty wild.

Yikes, judging by the photo in the linked article she might OD before the show comes out.
