which would be an outlier.

Not seeing your POV here, several times over years of comics establishes a pattern rather than some one-time fluke.   

Supes isn't remotely on Seid's level

"Isn't remotely"?  Consider that for a long time in comics, multiple cartoon series, DC Animated Original Movies, and even the occasional video game that Superman was fighting evenly (and sometimes winning) against Darkseid.  That's a pretty unified presentation of Superman being on Darkseid's level.

He matched beat or dominated DS at least 4 times.

Agreed, the amount of denial I so often see regarding this is staggering.

A couple things I've seen in comments elsewhere that interested me:

-Does Thor immediately making another hammer fit with Ragnarok's arc?  I'm sure the in-story reason is the need for more firepower against Thanos, but thematically it seems a step backwards.

-There's some speculation that the shot of Ebony Maw putting his finger over his lips is Loki in disguise trying to save Strange.  Not sure where this is coming from.

I'm honestly fine if they don't kill anyone. I know people feel like the stakes aren't actually high enough unless their is a death count but I like the characters and don't want to see them dead just for  the stakes.

I understand if there has to be a body count though.

Yeah I don't need it for a story to feel epic and would rather things ultimately work out for them.  In comics you know anybody that dies will come back given enough time, but for these movie versions it's not really the same deal.

Deaths have been strongly assumed for a long while, so what will the reaction be if they don't kill anyone big?  I'd prefer they don't kill anybody with a solo movie, personally, but I know that's a minority view.

It’s funny, I’ve always liked the concept and setting of the Eternals but never read any particularly compelling stories with them.  In contrast, I think a great deal of the New Gods background and characters are ridiculous but have found some great stories involving them.

A movie could be a difficult sell depending on how true to the comics they want to be, but stuff like the trading of sons for peace and successor gods representing technology has potential. Shouldn’t be too hard to avoid getting bogged down by the Virman Vundabars and Funky Flashmans of it all.

Why not base a Silver Surfer movie on the recent series?

Surfer comes to earth, The dot lady I can't remember tags along in space, she notices how everyone is scared of The surfer, get on a planet about to be annihilated by Galactus and learns he used to be his herald.

Surfer stands up for the planet, she rallies the planet, give up the planet, and then search for a new world.

I'm kinda mixed on this.  The recent Surfer stuff was definitely good, and the Doctor Who style woman companion definitely grants a nice story hook for the viewer to engage with...but much like the recent years of Doctor Strange I often felt like it was Surfer in name only. 

It's fine for the the current comics landscape and I would say well-written, but maybe not right for a movie introducing the character to the public at large.

Good idea for a fight.  I’m not terribly well versed in Elektra’s feats, but I imagine Sonja has better stats while Elektra has better skill as a martial artist?  I’d probably give it to Sonja since she’s no slouch in the skill department even if Elektra has the edge, and Sonja has some real power showings.

ICT / Re: Who's more powerful Superman or Hal?
« on: February 25, 2018, 12:01:49 AM »
Superman, and not to get all Jellyrobes about it but is it genuinely debatable?  There will be the occasional writer who appreciates versatility and favors Hal, but the vast majority of comic history portrays Superman as a bigger deal.

So did anything happen with this?  They were teased in the beginning few pages of Legacy and I don’t know where the story continued.

Lazy illustrator trying to force an art edit after the fact, rather than redraw. 

Seems pretty straightforward?

I thought it was noteworthy because it's new and different from past presentations on how they work. 

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."

Buffy was definitely stronger than Max.  Max seemed to be enhanced speed-wise to a greater degree than Buffy, and have more visible skill.  That's kind of the slayer/vampire dynamic in general, though, and Buffy always comes out on top there.

ICT / Re: Rank these Marvel heroines in raw power
« on: February 07, 2018, 11:09:43 AM »
Raw power, as in we are not looking for who would beat who?  I'll do both just in case.

Raw power:

Jane FosThor
Grey She-Hulk
Captain Marvel


Jane FosThor
Grey She-Hulk
Captain Marvel

I don't remember enough about Kismet to say.  Captain Marvel is frustrating, because they tend to write her like they always have but she has moments where she hits way out of what was classically seen as her class.  She's definitely supposed to be more powerful now, but the lousy oversight at Marvel means you'll see this followed pretty haphazardly.  That's not even getting into her pseudo-Binary form she sometimes transforms into.
