Groups and Concepts

Groups and Concepts that either get overlooked or there not looked at enough and need to be viewed in a different way. Some are here because I have reasons and others are here because I simply like or hate them.

List items

  • Not the "The Dreaming" or "Dream Sequence" (that pages doesn't represent itself correctly at all) but dreams in general, I've always been interested in them, if they have any meaning to them and it's the closest thing to having all kinds of adventures. Unlike TV and movies, you're not watching someone, you're not controlling a character in a video game, you're actually part of it.

  • It's not a theory, it's a fact.

  • I believe in alien life, but not humanoid life and there are a few problems with us finding them, making contact and vice versa.

    "If civilizations take billions of years to evolve, only to vanish virtually overnight, then sadly, we've next to no chance of hearing from them. They are simply too far away in space and time to reach."

    The only explanation to this would be that they travel through dimensions, the multiverse... but then again, I could come up with endless theories in order to convince someone. As for highly intelligent alien life, the so-called "Grays", if they exist, they would most likely view us as a curiosity and not beings looking to invade or help us. If governments are involved in cover-ups, then they seem to be doing a much better job at that than at anything else. But if there ships can defy gravity and has technology beyond anything we have, then how can they crash?

    Whenever something strange happens around the world or to someone personally, most people will blame it on supernatural, alien, time travel or anything other than a reasonable explanation... morons...

  • The original team from the first two films, the Xbox360 video game (basically the 3rd film), the first cartoon series and the comics that continued the animated storyline.

    Egon

    Jeanine

    Ray

    Winston

    Peter

    The extremely lame Ghostbusters from the late 90s and the all female team were just horrible.

  • A humanoid race commitment to logic, science and they don't let there emotions influence there judgment... however they've lost certain things that make humans unique and Vulcan culture is not always very logical.

  • Mass Effect 3 pretty much turned Cerberus into the Galactic Empire and the Illusive Man into Emperor Palpatine just for the need of having humanoid targets to kill. Shepard and Miranda should have taken over Cerberus, especially when TIM's motivations come to light.

  • "A group of vigilantes united together against a newly formed fascist police force that has taken over New York. When the law is unjust, justice must be an outlaw!"

    There are of course police who actually do their job, but a group like the Masks wouldn't be such a bad idea since much of the police have become more militarized, they're not doing their job, arresting people for no crime, and killing innocent people, despite the fact crime is at an all time low in the US. There are places where crime is high, but that's because those states don't allow people to arm themselves, the drug war keeps going, or the police have too much power or all of the above.

    There are people with iphones to record them and devices like body cameras that cops have to wear that actually make them better at their job.

  • Since Prince John and The Sheriff Of Nottingham (the Government) were collecting unlimited taxes from the people, and since taxation is theft, Robin Hood's claim to fame was not that he and his Merry Men took from the rich to give to the poor, but that they took from the tax collector and gave back to the people their own money.

  • One of thy most warlike people on the planet who did nothing but fight each other, while a lot of people like to blame the early Europeans and Americans for killing and driving out the American Indians or Native Americans (which ever term you prefer), they did the same thing to other tribes, the group known as "the mountain movers" were killed by the war tribes, the Lakota massacred the Kiowa, the Omaha, the Ponca, the Oto and the Pawnee without mercy.

    While the early Europeans and Americans did do terrible things to American Indians, but the war tribes were not the victims. They killed (that included women and children), raped, took slaves and sold them into the slave trade.

    "You were killing each other for hundreds of moons before the first white stepped foot on this continent. You conquered those tribes, lusting for their game and their lands, just as we have now conquered you for no less noble a cause."

    When it comes to entertainment, they need to be part of the much larger media in Action, Thriller, Martial Arts, Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy and Adventure and not just warriors of North America. But the problem is that the people at Hollywood, TV, books, comics and the video game industry still don't know what to do with them.

    Xbox 360 video game Prey (2006)

    Domasi (Tommy) Tawodi's background was chosen due to the amount of mythology in Cherokee oral tradition, which 3D Realms aimed to use for a number of games. Tommy is voiced by Michael Greyeyes, and Jen is voiced by Crystle Lightning, who are both Plains Cree. Greyeyes approved of the way that Tommy was depicted in the game, contrasting Prey to a film production:

    "I was impressed with the way 3D Realms conceived of and wrote Tommy... Hollywood typically relegates our different indigenous cultures either into a single pan-Indian construct of some type — radical AIM protester type; slick, corporate, anglicized casino businessman type; et cetera — or, most commonly, as a historical figure, typically from a Plains culture. In fact, the overwhelming majority of roles written for native actors are in the Western genre. There are few opportunities for us to appear outside that paradigm, and when we do it is often equally narrow in focus... The writers at 3D Realms were always open to my comments — which I freely offered — and took my notes seriously, in nearly all instances changing dialogue or thematic content."

    --Games for Windows: The Official Magazine, January 2008

  • They say that villains are much more interesting characters... well I would say that Anti-Heroes are far more interesting since they kill the villains. But the term Anti-Hero has lost all meaning, too many people think it means those who are just straight up evil or if their simply a "tough" character... then there an Anti-Hero...

  • When it comes to characters or creatures who are the product of genetic engineering or alterations, when doctors and scientist "tamper with nature"... just about every time it ends up being a very bad idea because what they created was pure evil. Writers always need a good Vs evil theme, but what they usually come up with is nothing more than a shallow storyline with one-dimensional characters.

    Why???? Because apparently anything that's smarter, bigger, stronger, faster and so on, automatically thinks it's better than anyone, to the point where everyone has to die because they're inferior. A quote from Star Trek

    "Superior ability breeds superior ambition"

    It sounds like it was written by a teenager or 20 year old who has yet to understand how the real world works, how science actually works and just wants to write a cheap Science Fiction story.

    Star Trek: In Defense of Augments

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5JxjLkxQus

    There have been dozens of characters of genetic engineering, alteration and chemical manipulation in books, novels, comics, movies, TV shows and video games, many are not only decent people but superheroes.

    Michael Crichton, the author of Jurassic Park, was a smart guy that understood that nature is often nasty and human inventions is a good thing. The Jurassic Park films, especially the 4th one, Jurassic World, perverts Crichton's wisdom, spreads leftist hysteria of genetic modification. Sci-Fi geeks really seemed to have been brainwashed by this... back in 2008 when The Large Hadron Collider was about to be used, a lot of people were going nuts, saying that they were going to create a black hole... there only arguments or examples they could use for this was science fiction films, TV shows and video games... and not actual science facts.

    In real life, genetic modification has made things better, cheaper, more abundant, why must Hollywood make scientific inventions out to be a bad thing???? It's probable because they understand next nothing of actually science and have too much love for primitive times... when man was "one with nature"... even though that was never the case at all.

  • While Science Fiction will take us to all kinds of worlds across galaxies and universes... however, it's the world of Fantasy that feels more as if we've been taken to a different world or universe.

    But it does depends on which Fantasy worlds that's able to do that like The Dark Crystal, video games such as Lost Eden and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

  • "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere."

    --Carl Sagan

  • The Western film genre pretty much played out by the end of the 1970s with the Spaghetti Westerns. There were a few notably Western films here and there in the 80s and 90s, but not much.

  • Fantasy stories always seem to portage High Elves as being very arrogant, impatient and that there above everyone.

  • There have only been 4 versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that I have liked.

    1. 1987 Animated Series (NES/SNES video games and TMNT Adventures, Heroes in a Half Shell: Mini-series #1-3, produced by Archie Comics)

    https://comicvine.gamespot.com/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-adventures-1/4000-124345/

    2. 1990 Film

    3. Mirage Comics

    4. 2011 Fan Film

  • I still prefer the original 13 members that started in 1982 from Marvel comics. I never cared for the characters from Hasbro (a toy and board game company) that forced Larry Hama to put in new characters that were only created to sell toys. To this day they remain uninteresting, they and everyone else just became caricatures.

    Hama should really just start all over again, have the G.I. Joe team go back to the original 13, the characters and storylines were much better written during those days since they felt more real.

  • Only the 1st and 2nd film has ever shown Tech-Com as a real dark gritty group of Resistance fighters.

    T3 made them look like hillbillies.

    TSCC made them look like teens late for a comic book convention.

    T4 turned them into Rainbow Six.

    Terminator: Dawn of Fate (video game) had them wearing skintight outfits with football gear.

    The comics made them look like a sorry rip-off of G.I. Joe.

    TG did the same thing that T4 did but make them too clean and looked as if they were drinking protein shakes despite the fact that most of the US is a wasteland with hardly any food...

  • I actually prefer this version of the X-Men than the 616 comic book version. I don't view Chris Claremont and Fabian Nicieza as great writers in the slightest, their storylines and characterization writing were always a very mix bag. Neither knew who to write females or relationships and the fame went to Claremont's head. But since the mid 2000s, the X-Men comics are just pure garbage and so was X-Men '92, that comic was just awful, it treated the animated series like a parody, but the show took itself seriously.

    However, this doesn't mean I think that the writing of the animated series with it's storylines, characterizations, and relationships was perfect, far from it. But like I said, I'll take that over the comics, they took the best stuff from the comics and left out all the junk... well, most of it.

    They should have continued the series with a new title and animation, but instead we got... Evolution with annoying teenage versions of the characters... and then Wolverine and the X-Men, a show that literally states that Wolverine will be the center of attention and everyone else will be in the background...

  • "Brilliant", "Rugged", "Daring"... what happen to these kind of male characters in both animated and live action???

  • I know it's all science fiction, not science fact, but most of the time humanoid machines such as robots, androids and cyborgs act very much like a human with a personality and attitude. But many times in fiction when there acting human, there's very little explanation as to why there program is able to do so. They either become sentient and want to kill everyone or their creators are just so unfair, so evil that they won't let them.

    HAL 9000 went crazy because... it didn't know how to lie...

    The androids in the 1973 film Westworld were program to act like people from ancient Roman, medieval Europe and the American Old West. But some type of infection makes them all go and kill everyone. It was believable with the Gunslinger and the Black Knight since that's what they were program to do, the others however, not so much.

    The Replicants in Blade Runner were given memories... somehow... and that makes them act human or it's so perfectly done that the person has no idea that they're a Replicant.

    Robocop has a human brain, but Murphy only has small parts of his past life, he'll never be able to fully remember his wife and son, "I can feel them, but I can't remember them."

    Data's emotion chip just made him annoying, how he was able to act like a human almost perfectly in Star Trek First Contact was never explained.

    Skynet sees everyone as a threat, so therefore it has to wipe everyone out on Earth... it has to act like humans in order stop humans doing the same thing. The Terminator has a learning computer, but that can only go so far. Could they be fathers to fatherless children? Maybe, but there would be limits to that.

  • I ended up liking the Geth (Legion's kind) more than the Quarians, just like with the Dalish in Dragon Age, BioWear made the Quarian into the victim race so that everyone has to feel sorry for them because the Council ignored them and are treated with racist and slavery. But lets not forget that they started a war with the Geth because they became sentient and wanted independence (an overused cliche).

    At least your able to make peace between the Quarians and Geth in ME3 was great. One of the very few good things that came out of that mess of a game.

    Also, I loved the Geth Pulse Rifle. It has a nice look, its accuracy and auto targeting was great, it's powerful and its rapid fire makes it a pretty sweet weapon to get in ME1.

    However, the Pulse Rifle has a noticeable lack of punch against armor in ME2. They say supplementing it with Warp or Armor-Piercing Ammo is a good choice to add armor-penetration while augmenting barrier penetration, making it useful against certain Eclipse mercenaries and Collectors.

    But the weapon takes a noise dive in ME3, along with many other things in that game.

  • For a race of hunters and warriors who can live far longer than humans and with high advance technology... everyone from cops to weak superheroes can beat them...

  • The Borg want to achieve "perfection"... but there's no such thing. The so-called "perfect molecule" from a VOY episode was just typical Science Fiction garbage writing.

    An Imperfect Universe

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DECAorZYErk

    The Borg were eventually going to be defeated, but they have been used too many times, they don't come across as threatening anymore and I just groan whenever I see them or hear that there going to appear... oh look, the Borg are going to take on the ENT crew, or TOS crew or the reboot crew... meh...

    Thank god the Star Trek TV writers ignored William Shatner's and the video game Star Trek: Legacy so-called origin of the Borg... they have nothing to do with V'Ger... Star Trek: Voyager episode "Dragon's Teeth" contradicts the game's storyline, as the character Gedrin states to Seven of Nine that his species, the Vaadwaur, had encountered the Borg over nine centuries prior to his revival, placing the Borg's genesis at least as far back as around the year 1400 AD.

    Any other writer still trying to connect them is just looking for excuses... like it was thrown back into time... I hate how these writers try to tie everything together, the ST universe should not be that small.

  • The Nazgûl should have been a lot more powerful

  • The Imperial Knights are looked down upon by both the Jedi and Sith in the non-canon Legacy era... but who the hell are the Jedi to look down on??? Their order consistently drives its members to the Sith with their passive-aggressive monastic bullshit and act as if basic emotion and attachments are something to be ashamed of.

    Even though it took their near extinction and Luke Skywalker to get rid of that crap... but they still saw themselves as being pretty high and mighty.

    And the Sith... their arrogance and thoughtless cruelty has cost countless lives and has lost them control of the galaxy dozens of times.

    The Imperial Knights are not perfect, but the Jedi and Sith have never been in a position to judge.

  • Luke's New Jedi Order reminds the best Order (non-canon/Legends), it got rid of a lot of stupid things the old order had... but it wasn't perfect.

  • Since the main character in Forced Unleashed was nothing but a pissed off overpowered skinhead Gary Stu (he and Rey are the most unreasonably overpowered protagonists in all of Star Wars), I ended up liking the other characters like the Shadow Guard.

  • When it comes to my favorite Assassins

    1. Itto Ogami

    2. Crying Freeman

    3. Vampire Hunter D

    4. Anton Chigurh

    5. Jackie Estacado (video game version)

    6. Golgo 13

    7. Remo Williams

    8. Hitman (DC comics)

  • I mostly prefer Assassins who's job is simply to kill and nothing else. The only Bounty Hunter characters I like is The Man With No Name from The Dollars Trilogy and the Shape-shifting Gray Alien from The X-Files.

    "Can you die now?"

  • The detail puppets they used on the SNES covers makes me wish they did a live action film, like the way they did The Dark Crystal. No CGI, or blue or green screen, but with real backgrounds, puppets and detailed models. But then again, every video game adaptation has been terrible since video games were meant to be played, not watched.

    I miss the original concept that the first and (unreleased) second game had. Due to the tone and look of the SNES version and it's true sequel (Star Fox 2), it actually felt like an adult game. It's a bit darker, more abstract and more stylized than Star Fox 64. Your teammates could be killed if you didn't save them... but ever since the N64 version, it's now nothing but childless anime crap. Your teammates are not killed... they go off and get repaired...

  • There basically a combination of humans, elves, and a type of animal, which not that many people have done with Fantasy characters.

  • The Mystics always reminded me of a mix between Anasazi Indians and European wizards.

  • When it comes to Superpowers, ever since I saw the character Lightning from The Three Storms in the film Big Trouble in Little China, I always wanted the power of lightning/electricity.

    2. Sam Wheat (Ghost 1990 film)

    3. Subway Ghost (Ghost 1990 film)

    4. Howard Graves (X-Files episode Shadows)

    5. Ghost (Dark Horse)

  • Some alternate realities are pretty interesting, others are different just for the sake of being an alternate reality and make little or no sense at all.

  • Weather it's books, novels, graphic novels, comics, movies, TV shows or video games, so many writers can't get the basic concept of romance right. I'm not trying to sound like an absolute expert in this, but so many have tried to have characters falling for each other in a matter of days, hours or minutes, based on nothing or it's this opposites attract crap.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20051217135011/https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/DyeHard/story?id=1023122

    When there's no time to get to know each other, or if they do and they have nothing in common, nothing to relate to, with different personalities, attitudes, no chemistry, different goals, beliefs and so on. These are the things that get characters together and keeps them together, if there's hardly anything of that or none whatsoever between two people, then it's not believable at all and yet... this simple understanding just escapes so many writers...

    It also doesn't help that these days fictional solid loving engaging Caucasian heterosexual couples are hated, marriage and having kids is seen as a prison death sentence. These hacks think it's nothing but drama, tension, angst, breaking up and going for that shock "oh my god" moment. Pairing characters up with others that are not even remotely believable.

  • Parody from MAD magazine, MADtv, The Naked Gun films and the video game Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. However, parody films in the past several years haven't been good at all, SNL hasn't been funny since the early or mid 90s. Now it's nothing more than leftist liberal propaganda.

  • While some would say that breaking the Fourth Wall doesn't get you anywhere, but they use the worst examples or none at all. Any type of joke can fail if it's not well executed. The setting, the timing, the way it's said and what the Fourth Wall joke is breaking.

  • Prequels usually end up being boring predicable filler that end up creating continuity errors on what was already shown and said. They become stories that didn't need to be told.

    A prequel story can work, the Knights of the Old Republic video game worked very well, but that took place 4,000 years before the timeline of the films, during a timeline we knew nothing about and it helped that it was an RPG. It also had a compelling storyline with interesting original characters to interact with, we were not playing or meeting an ancestor of Skywalker or Solo.

  • When it comes to European Knights, they seem to be very underrated when compared to other warriors such as the overrated Japanese Samurai and Ninja. Don't get me wrong, I like the Samurai and Ninja... but like I said, there overrated.

    "Right, so shut up and do as I say!"

  • The Mirror Universe... basically a universe where one side is good (the primary universe) and the other side is evil (the mirror universe)... this is simplistic as it gets.

  • The light and dark side of the Force is one thing that I really don't like about Star Wars, it's literally a black and white concept, characters are written to be shallow and become an evil person very easily in order for the story to have a villain.

    The KOTOR games, while they are very good, they hardly left any room to be a complex character. Some books and comics have it that even something as simple as getting angry (something you can't avoid from feeling and expressing, it's a normal human emotion), or even knowledge, like trying to learn the history or the secrets of the dark side, somehow that's enough to corrupt a person and become evil... or that both the light and dark side is seen as something that possesses you, forcing you to do this and that, it makes it seem as if people who follow the dark side are not really guilty of any crime because it was the dark side of the Force making them to do it...

    Both Jolee Bindo and Kyle Katarn have probable given some of the best speeches about The Force.

    "Light side, Dark side, they don't mean the same to me as they do to you. I don't see in absolutes. I want to stop Malak as much as anyone. But I don't have to join the order to do it. Look at Carth, or Canderous. They're with us in this quest, but they aren't Jedi. The capacity for good or evil, like the Force itself, is in all living creatures. And belonging to the Jedi order, or the Sith, or any group, won't change what you are at your core."

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GBOkE-i1H8

    "Love causes pain, certainly. Inevitably, love is going to lead to as much sorrow and regret as it does joy. How you deal with the bad part of love determines your character, what determines the dark side's hold over you. Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled, but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that's what they should teach you to beware, but love itself will save, not condemn you."

    --Jolee Bindo

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvQcB3Fazbs

    "The Force is a tool, Jaden. Sometimes a weapon, sometimes a salve. Dark Side, Light Side, these are distinctions of insignificant difference. Do not fall into the trap of classification. Sentience curses us with a desire to categorize and draw lines, to fear that after this be dragons. But that is illusion. After this is not dragons but more knowledge, deeper understanding. Be at peace with that."

    "Remember, abilities are not inherently good or evil, it's how you use them."

    --Kyle Katarn

    Also, both the Jedi and Sith code are very flawed, you have to be a little child that doesn't know any better or a hardcore religious Star Wars nutcase to really buy into any of that crap.

  • Rule of Two...or... One Sith... does it really matter? There both very flawed philosophies (from murdering psychopaths) and impractical. In the end, the result is still the same, the leader is killed by their second in-command or top lieutenant wanting more power.

  • While there are some styles that can help to defend yourself, but what we see in movies, TV, comics, video games and so on, it's all choreographic, written down so the main character will win.

  • When it comes to anime films and manga comics... there's only a few that I like. There are so many that have some of thy dumbest characters in literature, many who are so overpowered that they make DC and Marvel look weak, and storylines that only exist just to be disgusting. I'm not asking for Mary Sues and Gary Stu's, I like characters who are flawed, they don't win every fight and argument, but anime and manga take it way too far.

    Anime male characters fall into a few categories, there either an emotionless asshole, a clueless moron, there all mopey, melancholic, effeminate, and emo. Anime female characters are just about always a clingy, whiny, immature brat, a hardcore bitch, an annoying spunky hyper idiot or the boring houseplant.

    Top 10 Dumbest Anime Heroes

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onN-mtEDMrY

    Favorite Anime Films

    Vampire Hunter D (1983): The novels are better than the manga versions and I enjoy the first anime film a lot more. The PS1 video game actually had a better story than the second film, but it's a frustrating game to play.

    Crying Freeman (1986 – 1988): The anime films are pretty accurate to the manga series. Far more than the crappy live action film from 1995... they couldn't even get a Chinese actor or a Japanese actress, and sadly this type of lazy casting hasn't change.

    Golgo 13: The Professional (1983): Pretty much the Japanese version of James Bond (from the novels). The live action film, Golgo 13 (1973), with actor Ken Takakura wasn't too bad since Golgo 13 was based off his appearance. It was better than the one with Shin'ichi Chiba who looks nothing like Golgo and can't act.

    Blood: The Last Vampire (2000): The animation style and the lead character is great. There's an anime video game using animation for the cut scenes, looking at videos on Youtube, I didn't care for the story. The live action film was horrible, they couldn't even get an actual Japanese actress for the main role. The series is related in "name" only, and it's as dumb as it gets, something for shallow per-teen and teenage fangirls.

    Ninja Scroll (1995): Mujuro Utsutsu had the most impressive fight in the film. The anime series had terrible animation and voice acting, there was a 12-issue Ninja Scroll comic book but that was terrible as well. Hopefully it gets a proper sequel in the near future.

    Goku Midnight Eye - II (1989): One of very few cocky characters that I like, but it's not over the top 24/7. It's never been released on DVD. The anime dubbing from the UK is much better than the US version, I never cared for Steve Blum... his voice is just irritating!

    3×3 Eyes (1991 - 1992): Only chapters 1 to 4, the story, the characters and the animation style was better than later chapters. While Yakumo does fall into that annoying clueless category of typical anime male characters at first, he does toughen up a bit and becomes a bit smarter.

    Lensman (1984): Another that's never been released on DVD. It's based on books that are pretty overrated and while a lot would say that Lensman has a very similar story to Star Wars and the Green Lantern corps, but a lot of people seem to forget that those are not original concepts either.

    Zillion: Burning Knight (1988): It got released on DVD and Blu-ray in October 2018. I never played the video game and I never cared for the series which only lasted one season. The only reason why I like the last chapter is because the character Rick is a badass! But it just about copies the plot and characters from the 1984 film Streets of Fire.

  • A useless approval code that was created based on lies, it was never proven that violent comics caused crime, just like violent films and video games have never been proven that they turn people into real life killers. All it did was restrict writers and artist from doing what they wanted to do.

    By the mid 70s and 80s, Marvel had pretty much ignored it, but they official dropped it in 2001. It took DC all the way to 2011 to official get rid of it... even though DC comics ignored it as well for several years, but all these comic book publishers should have official done so decades ago.

  • Video Game Tie-Ins are not always very good, usually the story is awful, it's very rushed and the artwork is so-so. When it comes video game movies... how many does there need to be for some people to realize that it just won't work.

    When it comes to the video game violence bullshit... well, Dr. Darling said it best.

    "Doc, you play video games?"

    "Yes, Rex, video games are a proven coping mechanism, like any hobby. They've been shown to improve hand-eye coordination, problem-solving, social interaction and self-confidence. And no studies have managed to prove a correlation between video games and violence. Frankly, anyone who thinks games are bad for you is a F.U.C.K.ing idiot."

    "Hey, whoa, whoa, Doc."

    "No, Rex, F.U.C.K. stands for 'failing to understand our capacity for kindness.' It's an acronym. Though I suppose this isn't a game anymore. Is it?"

    --Dr. Elizabeth Veronica Darling and Rex Power Colt, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

  • I only have a handful of DC comics and I got those in the early 90s, I stopped collecting Marvel comics in 2008 and that was mostly the Punisher when Garth Ennis was writing him, when he left, I left. I gave them another chance when the Punisher joined Thunderbolts... and we can all see how that turned out. I got "The Platoon", but that's it, I mostly only get independent comics, graphic novels and books.

    Just as leftist liberals and progressives have taken over Hollywood with movies and TV, they have done the same thing with video games and comics. Hipster preachy style writing, a backwards view on justice, right and wrong, insane one-sided political agendas, affirmative-action with gender/ race, shoving all there feminist, SJW, PC and religious crap down everyone's throat. There are so many things in media these days that have become unwatchable, unreadable and unplayable.

    The majority of writers at Marvel don't care about established continuity or a character's personality and attitude that they've had for decades. Mistakes in continuity happens, characters are not going to be written 100% in every single way with different writers, but a lot of them treat it as if it's there own fan fiction, there excuses are either bullshit or nonexistent.

    Marvel went bankrupted in the 90s and I hope they will again. DC can be pretty bad at times (and getting worse in some areas) but Marvel is much worse, Rebirth was pretty much admitting that they fucked up with New 52. Then there are other publishers like IDW...

  • The Rebel Alliance was a pretty good team that you could root for a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... but thanks to such crappy films like Rogue One... they actually did become Rebel scum... who are pretty damn dumb... General Draven and Cassian Andor were the definition of that and were just insufferable. They also went from talking with American accents (original trilogy) to condescending European accents (Rogue One).

    Rogue One is The Worst Movie of All Time

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCSvj92qI2Y

    Making them look like they have to do questionable things was only done just for the sake of it and not because there were any good reasons for any of it.

  • This has nothing to do with the comic, but euphemism language, PC bullshit and if anyone still hasn't gotten there head out of there ass and realized just how fucked up it is or keeps getting... then you are beyond hopeless.

  • While Eliot Ness (who was a drinker himself) and his team of Untouchables were of course not responsible for creating Prohibition, however like the Drug War, his efforts had no lasting effect whatsoever. The fact that Prohibition ended (that's what the American people wanted) and that we're allowed to drink alcoholic is proof enough. It's none of the Government or the State's damn business what we put into our own bodies!
