TDK..I'm in my 50's so I kinda recall the Vietnam War (My dad fought in it). TDK is still the best superhero/comic movie. IMHO, AN wasn't even the best Vietnam movie of that era. I think "The Deer Hunter", "Full Metal Jacket" and "Platoon" were all better. Of it wan't for the "I love the smell of napalm in the morning" line. I don't think folks would remember much about AN.

5. Darn it, I have no idea what that page is, or it's significance. :( But wanted to be in this thread. Sorry as I'm sure that page is much better if I had any idea what it was.

Was better than I thought it would be. Quite entertaining. I even enjoyed the "super friends" song as an homage to the old cartoon. That my expectations were low probably helped me enjoy it more. Gustin and Benosit were both on "Glee", so don't be surprised if they do more of these. At first, I thought the "guy" was Abra-Kadabra..but in next week's Flash? Abra-Kadabra! Who was the main villain in Flash #300 (1st series) still one of the best single story comics ever written.

I no longer go to the battle forums, but a common one 4-5 years ago by Hulk fans was "As he gets madder, he gets stronger" and to them THAT was the ultimate power. To me, that a argument is 1000X lamer than the speed argument. That's when I realized the battle forums were nothing more than a place for fanboys to make themselves feel good about their favorite character. What was even lamer was they'd rather have their character have feats for use in battle forums than have their character have a good storyline.

Can't go so far as to call it "awesome"..it's been very good so far.

By speed argument, are you referring to arguments that focus mostly on speed and the reasons it decides a debate? Because if so, then it's just a factor in a fight like anything else.

Lmao way to throw shade at a fanbase and generalize them to boot.

As well as this, why do you think it's overused and why is it an easy answer? When someone says 'speed blitz' I can completely understand why you'd feel frustrated, but it cannot be denied that often it is a legitimate point; the same as saying that Superman would punch through Batman's head in a morals off fight- it's boring and anticlimactic, and with circumstances leaning in a certain direction things may be altered, but chances are it is going to happen.

I think, often, the reason people don't like the "speed argument" is because it's actually legitimate, not because it's "lame". If Flash or Zoom or Silver Surfer or whoever goes full speed at someone, that "someone" isn't going to hit them if they have less speed. I know these guys get tagged in comics often because..you know..comics, but in real life if someone could move at that speed, they aren't gong to be beat in a fight by someone that couldn't touch them. It's so simple that it is boring and leaves little room for discussion.

7. They've done well overall, a few misses, as expected. I'm going just by the films as I've not seen any of the TV shows, save for the first few AoS's which were terrible. Iron Man was great, TWS was very good. Lately, I've enjoyed the "under-the-radar" (by MCU standards) films more than the "big events". Liked Ant-Man and Doc Strange more than Civil War.

I think if a company can write a minority character and try not to preach about the usual tropes associated with Social Justice or bitch about how much they've been discriminated against- they should go for it. I discovered Batwoman who is LGBT was an amazing character, and reading her thoughts and how strong she was impressed me a lot. In comparison to Marvel shoving out forgettable characters Kamala Khan and Cho Hulk, who no one will remember in 20 years time. Marvel just tried to pander to a market who doesn't give a care about comics, and have alienated a core group of their fanbase. Glad to see they admitted their mistake, and if they're going to adopt minority characters should actually focus on developing their identity rather than pandering

Agree. Cannot stand pandering.

Yep. Thing is, it takes no creativity or talent to pander. Simply think of what the group you're pandering wants to hear and put it in your story. A good example of a way to do this with some taste is Green Arrow's current run. They decided to make Oliver a left-wing type hero, like he was in the late 60's. Fine. I often disagree with what he says. but I can still relate to why he feels that way. It doesn't feel pushy or preachy (most of the time) simply a character in a book that has a different world view than I do. I can live with that, even enjoy it. When it has the vibe of "This is what we stand for, please be impressed with how upright and moral we are," I can't read that.
