    @cable_extreme: the physiological, hormonal and behavioural responses of animals to stimuli we would expect to be painful suggest they feel pain. Naturally we can’t “know” it, just as I can’t “know” t...

    @the_agent_of_chaos: well it’s more than one TV series. Angel I believe is an even better show than Buffy and though I’m not a fan of Firefly, there are many who think it’s fantastic. Toy Story would ...

    @the_agent_of_chaos: Whedon doesn’t have particularly great writing in movies, but his greatest achievements are in TV. Memento and Inception are both cleverly written, no doubt but Buffy and Angel ar...

    @nucleon: yes, I see where you’re coming from. There was a bit of a DC bias and some Avengers definitely got represented poorly, I still like it but you make valid points.

    @nucleon: can I ask why you hated JLA/Avengers? I mean it was the standard superhero crossover plot - fight each other due to a misunderstanding and then team up to save the day - nothing hugely inter...

    Hickman's Avengers and Fantastic Four.Bendis' Daredevil. I thought this run was solid enough but I don't really understand why it's so beloved to be honest.

    It's close. In the USA it's probably Jordan but in some places where basketball is not such a big deal Arnie beats him.

    Lee/Ditko/Romita, Stern, David, DeMatteis and JMS all did stellar work on Spider-Man. And plenty of others made significant contributions. I’m not that familiar with GL comics but what I’ve read doesn...

    Nobody thinks humour is bad, the problem I have with the MCU humour is that it can be overbearing and comes at the expense of the seriousness of the plot. It can also be quite an immature humour somet...
