March 4, 2013 12:29 pm This article made my birthday! I would love to see at the very least more humor in comics. I loved things like NExtWave AGENTS of HATE, and Scott pilgrim and ....Groo, we near more funny. Recomendations?
August 8, 2012 11:41 pm Ben Affleck as Vandal Savage. It's all about letting the beard do the acting for you.
July 20, 2012 11:50 am We need to use the Bat signal as a symbol of healing and anti gun violence. It's an important Idea to the character and it's even explicit in the movie.
June 4, 2012 1:41 pm Disagree, I assume most people have pointed out the limited resources problem of TV, but I do feel like the seasons are satisfying chunks of character drama, while containing parts of a larger, MUCH bigger story. Season one was actually just an Act 1, it introduced the characters and set up the conflict. The inciting action is the death of Robert and the subsequent rise of Jofferey. That one thing starts the war, sets up Rob as king of the North, makes Tyrion hand of the king, sets aryia on her way to being a bad ass killer, and all of these things are based around the central conflict of who is on the Throne. Season 2 was the first part of the long act 2, it was mostly rising actions, leading to something which is still seasons away from being realized, for example the b and c stories of the Dragons and the Dead, which will collide with the A story eventually, but if it they are not set up they arrive as a Des Ex, and it ruins the story. WITHIN all of these things are smaller Character stories, which are your chunks. Season Two could be called broken into a bunch of smaller quests with B)eginings, M)iddles and E)nds : Tryion as Hand (had b: Hi i'm the hand, m: Oh no the kings a jerk I'd better save us from the oncoming hoards, and e: Epic battle where I lead the men and save the city) Jon Snow proves himself to the Nights Watch B) goes from servant, to ranger, to the one representive of the Nights watch to meet the king beyond the wall Theon is a Jerk B: helping Rob by going to his father, Turning on Rob and taking Winterfell, It all falling apart on him. Catlyn: B) trying to help her son win the war, finding her sons way is not best and releasing the KingSlayer. Rob: going from a man fighting for a kingdom to fighting for Love... Not all of the Characters change, because their time will come later. Sansa, Jofferey, Jamie, Ayria, many of these people learned things but did not undergo a full story arch, but they are now set up for it. It had chunks and I'm satisfied.
May 14, 2012 6:36 pm it's a 9, it has a light feel but it's intense in terms of plot and nods to fans. Young Justice is about 11, it's a darker show, more menace to the characters, and maybe a bit more complex in the plot.

May 9, 2012 3:32 am I loved the movie but I see a flaw in the next one already. I think the thing that made this work was Loki as the villain with his relation to Thor. It made the drama in some way related to the team and helped connect all the dots together. I can't help feeling they put thanos in this movie as a cock block to dc if they were ever to make a JLA movie and want to use darksied. Now DC kinda can't because the two characters are so similar I'm appearance and motivation. It would look like copying the other guys and no one wants to see a knock off when they can get the real thing. ( funny thing is in the comics this whole thing is reversed, but marvel got out the gate before the WB could get its pants on.) good for marvel but it's sad in a way because darksied and apocalypse would have been amazing to see realized, and I thing is more compelling than thanos. Thanos has very little tying himself to this universe that is being built and to tell his story you have to pull away from other great avengers things with no gain to the universe they are buliding. He's a powerful bad guy, but less meaningful than ulitron ( if you do ulitron you can do vision, hank Pym and wasp ) the masters of evil ( wonder man, general character development from having to fight nemesis and it'd be easy to build that with the other sequel films being made.) AIM would be cool to see if only to see Hollywood try and do MODAK. Point being I don't see Thanos adding anything to this story outside of being a powerful bad guy who prevents us from seeing a more menacing bad guy from another company. I want better than Thanos.
May 2, 2012 1:20 pm Each is an individual case. Damian Wayne, most certainly not, he lacks the moral drive. Tim Drake is smart enough, but lacks the money and i would say is less of a physical threat. Terry comes close ( it helps that Terry is a clone) but still he lacks as much of the situation and the drive, it being something he stumbles into by design, Wayne choosing to be the Bat and create himself as the bat adds to the whole drive thing, (think Apple without Steve Jobs, still shiny and nice, but there is an X factor in the creator). Dick comes closest, he has the drive from his parents death and he was raised into it, made his own name as Night wing, I think his weak point would be in the IQ area, but if your looking for how close we can get he's the best choice.
May 2, 2012 1:01 pm Disagree, but it looks that way. It's true Batman is just a construct but he is the construct of Bruce Wayne. The Batman isn't the Iron Man suit that can just be put on and fired at things, it's the sum of experiences and skills of Wayne, the pain that drives him to do this and the physical, finical, and mental resources that allow him to be the bat. What the Batman is outside of the story, the reason that we find him (and James Bond) so interesting, is that he is a "Man with Full Agency", meaning he is able to do all the things that man capable of doing, he is man at his most effective. He is only able to be this thing because of who Wayne is, what Wayne has in IQ, physical ability, drive, and wealth. Take any one of those things away and Batman doesn't work. You can dress a man up as Batman, but that doesn't make them Batman.
