You're assuming the writer knew that. Everything is bad science now in that comic but you think the writer cared about the size of the star?

Considering Levitz himself called it bad science that he apologized for, yes, I would say he cares abou accuracy.

Yes, it is way beyond simple consistency. It was never stated to be such, but it was also stated to produce nigh infinite amount of power which dwarf stars don't produce.

Where was it said to be nigh infinite and if so quantify nigh-infinite (which tend to be hyperbolic statements).

So its better to take things at face value rather than nitpick comics.

Taken at face value the white dwarf portrayed in the comic is vastly inferior and no where near close to the effects off its real life counterpart in multiple ways.

Why would I? That's your forte

Already did, but you asked so do it yourself.

and honestly the writers or artist don't give a Damn about it.

Really, because Levitz said the opposite.

Right, the dwarf star proved too much to contain in literally infinite space. That should tell you how heavy the writer think it was.

Yet was contained just fine in a yellow main sequence star (another nonsensical part) Mon-El found it in for years which is finite in space so yellow stars > infinite space?

All this tells me is how not heavy it is compared to everything else. Also, this "nigh-infinite" energy output outside the tesserect (both before and afterwards) does jack to the Earth by the way.

. Two billion tons is hardly bad science, there are mountains with more weight.

More than just weight, but blatant disregard for extreme heat, radiation, magnetic, and gravitational pull, but I wouldn't expect someone who believes red stars are hotter and more massive than yellow stars to know that.

So you don't have anything from the comics to prove it. Gotcha.

I already asked Levitz personally who told me it was really bad science when I asked about the problem with a 2 billion white dwarf. I'd like to think the word of the author himself counts for something.

it'd depend on the Oscar I guess


    Absolutely, if it’s for something it actually deserves. The Acadamy however is flailing blindly to make it self relevant again by trying idiotic tactics like creating the new “Best Popular Picture” category.
    What does that actually mean anyway?  “We thought this thing was crap,but a lot of you went to see it.”  So take a statue and maybe your brain dead fans will watch the show.”
   Black Panther was one of my favorite movies this year, but the Best Picture Oscar is supposed to go to the film that made the greatest artistic statement. Handing it to BP so people don’t think the Acadamy is racist is insulting.

Yes it should.

As for other movies is pretty damn easy to see that the Oscars haven't ever really been big on selecting popular & good movies.  Most of the times you get this obscure shit that you wouldn't pay to go see.   

Deadpool & Logan were clearly excellent movies that should've gotten an Oscar award.

I've seen lame arguments as to the only reason that Bp did so well was because  of when it was released(yet how many dc movies sucked ass despite how much money they poured into it wuth big names! ),  it's been nominated due to it having a majority black cast as opposed to the authenticity of the culturally relevant aspects or that the elements of the movie overall are fucking solid & the acting was just as good.


Should Avengers Infinity war get in on something?   Absolutely, fucking beautiful work of art also.   From the standpoint of a fan & someone who loves a good movie I can be unbiased.  Hell,  I wouldn't have been surprised if Ant-man hasn't gotten something.   I think the old codgers who go for these time period pieces or are interested in women fucking fish-men should pay attention to what marvel & other properties are doing.  They've improved on their formulas tremendously.  Dc has been hit or miss.

Sure just not best movie. It was a great movie but it wasn't mind blowing. Hell it wasn't even the best super hero movie this year. That was In to the Spider-Verse.

Mon-El didn't find a portion of the star. It was the whole star.

A white dwarf star would be planet size, this was clearly a small piece.

Comics are inconsistent but the star was stated to be the whole star.


This is way beyond simple inconsistency, also, where was it stated to be the same mass as its real life counterpart?


Yes, it is way beyond simple consistency. It was never stated to be such, but it was also stated to produce nigh infinite amount of power which dwarf stars don't produce.

Where did you find the weight of the star except in your calculations?

Do the math for a white dwarf that size.


Why would I? That's your forte and honestly the writers or artist don't give a Damn about it.

Also the star was stored in a tesserect.


Even when in the tesserect it proved to unstable to contain where Mon-El and crew had to take it outside above the lab.


Right, the dwarf star proved too much to contain in literally infinite space. That should tell you how heavy the writer think it was.

Issue number?

LOSH #53.


Ah, Levitz said it was bad science. Nothing about weight of the star. Two billion tons is hardly bad science, there are mountains with more weight.

Why don't your post the scan where it says its two billion tons?

Do the math for a white dwarf's density and volume, comes out roughly 2 billion tons.
So you don't have anything from the comics to prove it. Gotcha.

Sure why not. Dumber movies have gotten Oscars.

I think there are plenty of comic films that have deserved Oscars honestly, for example, this year? I really believe Infinity War deserves it. Its a move that has been hyped for a decade and LIVED UP TO EXPECTATIONS. In one of the most divisive times in this country's history, for us to come together and agree that movie was badass and DELIVERED, I think should not be ignored. Not to mention, it was written great and the character development especially from Thanos was superb.

Not enough black people, tho
No, but plenty of africans, as the first (and last) line of defense for the planet, no less.

Odin is still a magic being.

He wins.

Puny small world small God magic isn't potent enough to weaken Superman. On panel fact.

Odin gets evaporated. His superior Mangog gets merked in the sun.
They way you act, Superman and Hal arent very herioc. They are Cosmic beings on the order of Galactus. So risking their lives is a fantasy. They are just fame hogs.

Absolutely not

Have other movies won one without "deserving" it?

Yes
Infinity War wouldn't be nominated because it's not a stand alone film and is basically only a "Part 1." I wouldn't be surprised, however, if Endgame was nominated as a nod to the MCU, as a whole. Much ;ike how ROtK was nominated, and won, for the entire LOTR trilogy.
