November 6, 2017 2:14 am What, you marry Stan Lee's daughter or something, and now you can't be on the show? You bastard! You beautiful, beautiful bastard! We love you, man, and we'll miss you!
June 11, 2015 2:55 am Hey Josh, I enjoyed the show. Kind of reminded me why I miss Augie De Bleck's Pipeline podcast so much.
September 27, 2013 5:21 am I really enjoyed the Fitz-Simmons. I have high hopes for them as well. They remind me _a_little_ of the two scientist in Pacific Rim (Charlie Day and the other guy). I also liked the fact that Dr. Streiten (Ron Glass) referred to them in the singular when saying they were not cleared for combat.
September 27, 2013 5:12 am I liked the way Coulson being back from the dead was handled. First, Level Six Agent Ward understands Coulson is dead, then welcome to Level 7 in which Coulson is alive and Nick tricked the Avengers, followed by maybe a Level 8-ish-like alternate version of the story (one in which perhaps Fury wasn't "tricking" the Avengers as much as Agent Coulson thinks and he was a little more dead-ish than he knows). I'm guessing the "Level 8" version (for lack of a better name) is the final layer to this onion, but you never know. Part of me never wants to know the truth, letting my imagination run while with different versions. But I know that for a series such as this it will certainly come up; and could be fun if it's truly handled correctly. I wonder if there will be little clues over the season about his "nature" now. Perhaps the "wonder twin" scientists accidentally notice something (his DNA doesn't match that on record, his blood is copper based, he only eats D cell batteries for breakfast), or Skye goes through one too many firewalls and learns something (such as one of those firewalls was in Coulson's brain!), or Coulson starts exhibiting odd behaviors or characteristics (qualities beyond those of mortal men; a new tendency to routinely come back from the dead...I mean, Tahiti; they never see Nick Fury and Agent Coulson in the same room at the same time anymore). If this is handled well, it could be fun; if not, you'll see this grown man cry.
September 27, 2013 4:30 am Pilots are always special beasts. So often it's one of the few episodes in a series in which there is typically the greatest amount of change; an amount of change which we won't probably have in the rest of the series (basically, setting up the status quo), so it's always hard making an evaluation based on it. But having said all that, I enjoyed the show and look forward to more.
September 1, 2013 6:05 pm I don't recall who said it, but it feels appropriate for what this site has accomplished. "An experience shared is an experience doubled."

September 1, 2013 5:29 pm When I first created my account on the iFanboy site many years ago I was trying to think of a name that reflected me in someway without it actually being me. I was/am a very happy and proud father (friends use to call me BigDaddy), and I also knew the name needed a superhero sort of sound, thus I came up with PowerDad -- and amazingly haven't regretted it this entire time. This has been quite a year. I lost my job of 12 years a few months ago, and now my comic book site is "going away". But that's okay. All things change, and this just means there are new opportunities for discovery. Thanks to everyone who has worked to make this place as enjoyable as it was/is. Oh, and this is probably a bad time to ask if Murmur.com is coming back anytime soon, huh. :-)
August 27, 2013 10:36 pm I wasn't aware Timecop was from a comic. I thought they might have just made it up as they went along. (Radiocarbon dating gold? What?)
August 7, 2013 2:41 pm Tom Strong came to mind after reading your list, but he wouldn't be in the top five, probably not in the top 10 either. He has the problem solving skills and that intellectually inquisitive aspect to him which I feel like fits him into the scientist category, and in the realm of Big Brains. As for your number one, I must agree. Reed Richards is always my go to guy. You have to go off planet to find a better scientist and big brain, and even then no one else comes to mind at the moment.
