After Ultron had been nearly destroy by a tri-blast from Vision, Thor and Iron Man.

He did alright against a Mjolnir-less Thor.

Fenris fell off a waterfall.

Because he he crashed after Endgame and let himself go.

Probably going to watch Invasion USA -  just to remember what a man's chest looks like.

MCU Hulk is a buster who got in a lucky shot on a space worm and has done nothing but lose since.

Marvel Studios fattened Thor up and  emasculated Hulk in one fell swoop huh? - While ushering in a ham-fisted wave of Superheroines that steal the spotlight - Getting into Letters' level of conspiracy here, but the dissolution of masculinity in Marvel Studois and Comics is hard to ignore.

Really embracing the superhero stuff

Pulling a Cap in pulling the copper together.

Good endings for who?!

Luke died a quitter. What a loser, he failed at literally the only thing he tried to do post ROTJ. The Empire somehow regained footing after being close to done and instead of realizing he's the individual with the best chance to turn the tide, he pouts on an island for 30years. Then, when he finally has a chance to turn up and save Kylo, like he did Vader, he doesn't. He does a lame force ghost trick and dies anyway (probably of shame).

Theres obviously been a lot of debate about whether people not really liking Last Jedi much was due to a handful of nerds and bots or whether there really was a huge disconnect between critics and audiences on their assesment of the film.

Im not sure how accurate this tally is but if true i think it demonstrates a pretty shocking decline in the degree of interest/hype around this franchise. Trailer views in the first 24 hour has become a semi-decent metric for gauging audience excitement and with that in mind the only figures i have found so far have the Ep IX teaser getting 16 million views in that time frame:


Now this is just a teaser and not a trailer and this number may be unofficial and underestimate things....but compare that to this list:


The Ragnarok teaser got 136 million views a couple of years ago. The Last Jedi trailer got 120 million views later that year. Obviously those numbers dont correlate exactly with how much money each film made but i think this is the first evidence that there may be a real "eh" feeling about this franchise that is very, very hard not to attribute to the last film. I dont think this would be a particularly controversial point but its become an article of faith amongst most people reiewing and talking about these films in a professional capacity that there was no real backlash outside of a few bitter, angry old fans and that the fact that it still made a lot of money proves that ordinary people really enjoyed it.
I wouldn't say it's a given people enjoyed it, but the saw it. TFA mined nostaliga pretty hard.

Current run of movies is far worse than the prequels. They were atleast entetaining, and had some precedent for characters we cared about.

Finn should have been the main character, a non-force sensitive former Storm Trooper? Now that would have been intriguing and compelling.

Brawl is lame. It just doesn't make enough sense to be more than a gore showcase, but it isn't great at doing that. It's shot well, but the choreography is frustrating slow and awkward. Every movement is set up for a Mortal-Kombat like "Brutality."

Vaughn turns in a good show, but has no compelling adversary. Dodgeball will be hard to watch now.

It adds to the "Marvel (Drum-Crash) of his strength. It isn't intangible to imagine a 7' foot tall humanoid. But the miraculous part comes when said humanoid is doing impossible things for something that size.

I'm torn, beacuse on one hand, I love the fact that Cap is kicking the crap out of Thanos. And on the other hand, it looks like the Russos have Hulk on a soy diet of epic proportions. - What a scrub.

It hasn't been, because and stay with me here - Genis did it.

He can ressurect himself from the dead. And time travel.


So what's Hal going to do? Hal can neither kill him or over power him?

..based on what, exactly?

Your "..." As if after I have supplied proof of a statement, all you have to answer is with more questions. Then doesn't win you an argument. Insane Genis can was never beaten, can kill and resurrect not only himself, but others from death. Killed one of the two OG storm giants. (A battle with two would have destroyed Asgard-King Thor included).

Photon had more power, but was nowhere near as creative. Even then, he was beating Moonstone Zemo.

'Beat the shit out of Genis', is your answer.

Hal Beat Krona boosted by 6 emotional entities and Zero Hour Parrallax.

Genis has nothing comparable.

Killing Eternity?
