Yeah wasn't expecting much from this but legit fucking loved every minute of it. It's glorious, like a brilliantly animated 2-hour unashamed love letter to the Spider-Man universe.

Also watched it in 2D and regretted that choice about halfway through, might have to go again in 3D.

Some Uncanny X-Men stuff that Gree will like:

- X-Man is back and he's holy crap powerful.
- he has easily enslaved Magneto, Omega Red, Blob and Angel and converted them into his horsemen.
- he has kidnapped Apocalypse and keeps him pinned to an X-shaped crucifix just to remind him of what hell looks like
- he shuts off Shadowcat's powers with a word
- he easily connects to every mind on the planet at once (a feat that isn't always that impressive for psis depending on who is writing, but here it clearly is intended to be... Jean says that Xavier couldn't have done it on his best day)
- Legion claims that Nate is beyond Omega level

Not sure I like what they are doing with Nate's character (he is insane and trying to remake the world in his own image, eliminating war, industries that pollute the earth, bringing back extinct species etc while accepting that many lives will be lost in the process... a bit like Uber Cable but much more aggressive with how he goes about it) but it's nice to see his power-level get mad props at least.

Yeah it was great. Loving it.

Also loved the Best Defense Immortal Hulk one-shot that came out today. Some really great moments in that. It's mostly a Banner story and Ewing uses a cool technique where he drops in panels from the earliest Hulk stories that mirrors Banner's actions in this book.

I love how much of a continuity buff he is. Even the little things... there's a moment in this one where the villain of the piece justifies himself by saying "I just wanted to make them pay." To which Hulk responds: "never stop making them pay... we're real understanding about that." Brilliantly subtle little nod to Planet/World War Hulk.

Finally, it's a great time to be a Hulk fan again.

Hulk vs upgraded (and now possessed by One Below All) Absorbing Man round 2:

This book is so fucking great at the moment.

Not a fan of murderer Hulk though.

I'm okay with it because it's clearly going to be held up as a big deal (Banner's sense of discomfort suggesting it is a highly unusual if not unprecedented occurrence) which probably suggests it's going to be at least partly down to Brian Banner/TOBA's corrupting influence.

The Rulk that Hulk quite easily defeated in Avengers no surrender to the same author said that he was even stronger than Loeb's Rulk, the same Rulk who easily defeated Marvel heavyweights including: Hulk Savage, Thor OF, Silver surfer even the Observer etc.

It's stated in the same issue, shortly before the Hulk beats him, that this Rulk is nowhere near Ross's Rulk actually.


ICT / Re: Mostly gokenadams thinking 'Herald' is a level and not a class
« on: October 30, 2018, 05:34:45 PM »

That's why top tier is better, since it encompasses the actual classes of characters like Thunder gods, flying bricks, bricks, heralds, mages, etc.

Eternals have almost the exact same powerset as heralds at a lower level.


If "Herald level" is meant to encompass everyone who is at least as powerful as, say, Air Walker, up to and including peers to the Surfer, then Hulk is absolutely at the top end of that. He might only have a fraction of the number of powers but he'd beat the utter shit out of every actual Herald of Galactus aside from the Surfer. And even that is a bad stylistic match-up rather than a raw power deal.

Really didn't expect this show to get bogged down with the childish "no kill" stuff.  That kind of comic staple belongs in lighter adaptations, it feels ridiculously foolish in the world this season created.

They made a big thing of it in season 1 (DD vs Stick debate) and season 2 (DD vs Punisher debate) so it's not like this was a radical departure.


Bullseye from Netflix Daredevil season 3. Standard gear for everyone (so Bullseye gets the DD costume and batons to start plus anything he can lay his hands on - let's say it's an office environment).

vs Punisher

vs Black Widow

vs Hawkeye

vs Bucky

Bonus fights:

vs Punisher - pure h2h, no weapons for either one

vs Hawkeye - who is more accurate with ranged weapons?

Finished it. Somewhat underwhelming resolution but overall it's brilliant. Fisk <3

Not sure how I'd rank the seasons, will need to rewatch this one. Season 1 still tops overall I think. This is probably on par with the best bits of season 2 (i.e. the Punisher and Fisk bits) but overall better than s2 as it doesn't have the less good bits (i.e. the Hand stuff).

Not much with Fisk right now although I'm kinda curious about the FBI looking at their agents' debt problems.  I hadn't heard about that before.  Are they worried they might end up taking bribes if they rise in the ranks while having money problems?

I dunno about in the US but pretty much any government role with access to sensitive information requires financial vetting over here. I had to get it done for a shitty job with the Home Office and that only needed like the middle level of government vetting checks. And yeah it's because someone with financial issues can potentially be bought or otherwise influenced.

Liked the first 5 episodes a lot. Even when it isn't hitting peak levels the quality level is so much higher than the other Netflix shows (aside from Punisher).

Where's the thread for 6 onwards? Episode 6 is fucking great.

This Hulk is like the original and Fixit in that he reverts back to Banner when the sun comes up. Blasting him with a concentrated dose of the sun would have triggered the change back to Banner who was then cooked, so not just a case of Hulk being melted by raw power.

This is why the skeleton is Banner sized and the Avengers use UV lamps until daybreak to prevent Hulk regenerating. Sun = no Hulk.


The madder Namor gets, the stronger Namor gets. Imperius Rex!

Makes absolutely no sense (like most things Jason Aaron writes these days) but Namor is cool as fuck so I'll take it.

Hell of a prep feat too for the avengers. They just found out hulk only comes out at night shortly before approaching Hulk. Reporter told captain marvel first. Then when they confirmed Walter was out she got the avengers.  So not sure how they build the Helios in time to do that exactly plus have the UV drones. But hey...comics *shrugs*

I don't think the Helios thing would need to have been prepped specifically for the Hulk. Blasting most people with a concentrated beam of the sun is going to hurt (it nuked a town in the process so it's a potent offensive weapon). Wasn't Stark weaponising the sun during Hickman's Avengers run? It seems like something he would do.

The guy at Shadow Base notes that they cut him to pieces during the day so he is "nice and comfy in time for the next sunset". As soon as the sunset kicks in Hulk revives despite being cut into dozens of pieces stored in separate jars.
