Darkseid's True form is pretty OP and Death-battle loves to take a characters most insane feats and pretend that's their usual level of operation.

They also tend to wank DC a bit. Like they fed Captain America Batman because Batman vs Spider-Man wasn't a fair fight and they also fed Spider-Man 2099 to Batman Beyond because Batman vs Black Panther is solidly in T'challa's favor.

Honestly everyday I wish more and more that I stayed a Virgin up until my mid 20's and then sold it to some rich despot who has nothing better to do with their money. I've heard of guys and girls getting 50-250, 000 pounds doing stuff like that.

Honestly if we really want to live in an world of equality we have to condemn Incel ideology (which I only mentioned because the OP did), but at the same time realize that society puts a premium on men who are non-divergent, conventionally attractive men while also telling them they are worthless if they can't have sex.

Guy asks for fitness advice. Gives fitness advice. Tells me later pain is demotivating. I tell him to get used to it. Other person comes in to say pain is bad because their fencing coach that’s been fencing 40 years said so and don’t over exert yourself.

Almost want to chuck my phone against the wall.

You do have to learn to deal with pain, especially if you are interesting in hitting heavy PR's although I find stretching works well for me. For joint pain I've found the mixing up compound exercises helps best. So one week on a push day, I will completely omit regular push ups and replace them with pike push up or handstand ones. Really stops the repetitive motion and strain I've felt in the past. I've been doing the same with barbells and floor press and bench before lockdown. And switching out Pull Ups for Chin Ups and netural grip.

There are some exercises I have kinda given up on because of elbow pain though. Like I rarely do one arm push ups unless I have arm wraps because of my right elbow. Same goes for muscle ups. Those two I don't mind because they are more of parlor tricks. And I skull-crush with baby weight lol

Since we are speaking of Fitness, how do you feel about Connor Murphy and Jeff Cavalier. I have alot to say on the former and a fair amount on the latter lol.

@god_spawn: Loba has a really nice ultimate and BloodHound has been steadily getting buffed. I bought Cyrpto but haven't used him much. I am a lifeline main do or die even though she's probably mid tier right now.

I am looking forward to Cross Play too but I hope Console guys can turn it off against PC. Apex rewards aim like crazy and its so fast paced (which really lend to the mouse/keyboard and higher FPS). I've played some PC Apex and its brutal, I feel if I played main on Xbox against even a half decent PC player I'd get ground into dust.

Probably Live Action. Comics and Anime are pretty close. But it really depends on what is popular at the moment really.

I want to say White Lotus. None of the Red Lotus have a solid counter to Lightning Generation, and Iroh is more adept at its usage that Mako. The sheer amount of Rock that Bumi can produce provides a good defense against P'Li and Ghazan's Lava bending can be countered somewhat by Water Bending and Airbending. Also Ghazan kinda sucks at close combat, given how he struggled to take down Bumi who was really a beginner Airbender at the time.

I will say however that Black Actors playing White roles doesn't have the same stigma as the other way round because of the historic exclusion that Black People have faced in Film, Theater and Television. Whites haven't and still don't face this.

As I said before the Simpsons I can understand to an extent as they have generally meant to satire people in positions of power and their portrayal of Black characters in general isn't bad. But even then Willy's portrayal is pretty terrible and their Italian stereotypes are not that great either. Yes these are not as damaging, but still there.

And I guess we have the elephant in the Room Apu. I am not Indian, but from my perspective I don't think Apu started off as a bad character and he's had alot of notable moments but I don't think he's grown enough as a character to shake his defining trope as small shop manager with a strong Indian accent and cheapskate mentality. And I don't think that's even deliberate given the horrible flanderization that has happened to Flanders, Homer, Moe and even the likes of Liza, but then again Racial bias and prejudice is something that doesn't go away unless you actively combat it.

@ghostodoofus2: I mean does it really matter with Family Guy given the horrible stereotypes they have had over the years.

I’ve had such shit luck at Apex this week. Tonight I’ve been terrible.

I haven't played it in about 3 weeks. I should go back. I tend to start the seasons okay but then I just get spanked as people figure out the Meta and Skill Based Match Making kicks in. Jeez it even makes casuals difficult lol.

Are you looking forward to Crossplay come this fall?
