• Rainshadow777 posted a message in the forum topic Modern comics question: why heroes get more diversity but not villains?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    There's plenty of diversity amongst villains. Ra's al Ghul isn't exactly Johnny Whitebread. Black Manta, Poison Ivy, Sinestro. Magneto's Jewish, right?

    I wish there was more detective work and slow burn whodunnit style narratives in Batman books. I’ve always found this a frustration. It’s why stories like The Long Halloween are so special. It might n...

    I'm a little surprised to read these disparaging remarks on King's current stories. I think they're actually pretty good. I can't say they are full of excitement, but there is a nice philosophical an...

    I'm all for a reversion to the red trunks, but only because I'm a traditionalist in many other ways as well. The heritage is part of the attraction for me. I'm just wary of how Bendis is going to use...

    Wow. I haven't seen it yet, but from all of this I have to say I'm more than a little curious. That crazy rating on Rotten Tomatoes is hilarious. Cool, I'm exciting to watch it now.

  • Rainshadow777 posted a message in the forum topic The Dark Knight(2008) or The Avengers(2012)?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    The Dark Knight is way better than The Avengers in my opinion. I love Nolan's gothicism and a fantastic Joker, compared with the cheesy teenage humour of The Avengers. Plus these days I'm finding it a...

    Pretty sure he was born on a Monday. Not sure if that makes him evil, but he had a whole week to wait until the weekend. That’d make me grumpy.
