Marvel Zombies / Re: What has Aaron done?

One of the themes of the story was Black Superheroes against Gentrification.

No, it wasn't.

...I mean I wonder what the author's own position is on the matter:

[quote author = Ta-Nahesi Coates]I know that ‘gentrification’ is but a more pleasing name for white supremacy,
https://fromtomorrowsdream.wordpress.com/2017/12/21/some-thoughts-re-coates-and-gentrification/

Which has nothing to do with the issue so...You do know professional writers can actually talk about a subject they feel strongly about without making their personal viewpoints seem valid, right? Again, having NOT read the issue, you should probably stop talking about it like you have a clue what it was saying.

Eh. Dick's been shot in the head before (fracturing his skull) and he still went on to continue fighting.

I just finished IF yesterday. Then I started watching the new series The Dragon Prince, which is pretty good.

Hmm?   Dragon Prince.   I'll have to give that a look.

It has a very Avatar: TLA feel to it.

Just saw this and I'm cautiously optimistic. I haven't watched their live-action Bleach movie but heard it was pretty good.

Neither the Bleach or Full Metal alchemist movies were made by Netflix. They just bought the US streaming rights. The Deathnote movie is all them though.

Ah, gotcha! I heard bad things about Deathnote so now I'm a little worried...

3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000...

.....This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!

He also doesn't realize that quote wasn't from Obama. Obama was talking about manufacturing jobs, not the GDP.

Wyntyrd is right. Lawful Good characters defy authority figures if they believe the authority's actions will bring harm, whether it's outright evil or just being misguided in some way.

Cap's initial actions to enlist wasn't due to him thinking the law was misguided or corrupted. From the door, he had his own code of conduct.

And I just got back from my regular DnD game.

A Lawful Good character wouldn't repeatedly lie to get into notary service. And then, once he was enlisted, break the rules by disobeying his commanding officer.

Current TV Shows / Re: Iron Fist season 2 Episodes 1-4

On Episode 3 and Mary is CLEARLY insane. She's freakong me out but still hot lol

Colleen didn't trip because she knows Danny and isn't insecure like that.

It's not about insecurity or mistrusting Danny.  It's about some chick randomly calling up her boyfriend.  Like I trust my wife 100%, but if some dude calls looking for her and I know he wants something, I'm gonna let that dude know he needs to lose the phone number.

She met Mary on episode 2. She wasn't really a "random" at that point. Plus Colleen obviously gives leeway to emotionally damaged people.

Also, it looks like they went more kung-fu as opposed to tai chi for fighting style/choreography. I don't like that. While kung fu is more "flashy", tai chi for a better for the character. I never thought of it until the 1st season. As an American, I expect certain things in MA's which don't necessarily match the character or archetype.

Thinking on it, I like Danny mastering tai chi and Shang being a kung fu master. So Matt had boxing/kung fu, Danny is tai chi and Shang is the master of kung fu.
