Re: Immortal Hulk #15

See I’m not as bothered by the other hulks because there’s always been more than just the Hulk...and as long as they are used well (Parker’s Red Hulk and red she-hulk runs are grossly underrated), then I’m fine. I actually still love the progression of the Immortal Hulk and this issue’s revelations ...

Rogue had a bunch of tattoos too. All down her arm, in Extreme X-Men. So weird how they just went away.

Well hers going away can be explained away pretty easy: the Hope purge (when she touched her to save her) really changed her in aloy of ways

Re: Random Thoughts

Well I know Cable and while philosophically we differ (he’s more of a traditional conservative, not one of the populist-Trumpism types), we 1)both love nerd culture and 2) he’s never been disrespectful to me. So I take anything he says from a good-faith perspective. I think even though I’m clearly a...

Re: Random Thoughts

That “all or nothing” aspect is imo the worst aspect of the EC and really goes against the idea of representative democracy...it should be proportional.

Well Knull is Cates but the God-Butcher sword is Aaron’s...and Cates didn’t create Wraith either or kill Thanos.

I enjoyed this issue and am glad to see Maggott back with actual speaking lines.

Given he’s South african, there’s another layer to him being much more radical.

Re: Uncanny X-Men #14

See, I think (and this definitely me thinking wayyyyy to hard about it), on an in-universe level Morlock is just what mutants that live underground (both figuratively and literally) call themselves (remember the Chicago branch?). I mean the original Morlocks were linked as being worked on by dark be...

Re: Random Thoughts

That’s of course the unsaid aspect, one that I don’t think Cable is necessarily arguing for/against, the factors that go against the rational model of current electoral system. Those things, like gerrymandering and disenfranchisement, actually are anathema to a properly functioning representative de...

Re: Random Thoughts

See, again I see your point and don’t think it’s wrong in theory but not in actual execution. Everything from anecdotal evidence to data makes me believe that a majority of voters vote are not that rational (in the sociological sense of the word). It’s true that horse-race talks pervade the media bu...

Re: Random Thoughts

I think I see the disconnect in this discussion... Cable is coming at this discussion from a structural perspective that takes the world as given and so positions his argument within the established rules. He’s, in my view, arguing about how the rules work and how candidates can win within those rul...

Re: Uncanny X-Men #14

Not that it's a huge point, but I thought Wolfsbane had resisted the Techno virus. This issue seemed to show her under its influence. Anyone know what's up with that? Because Scrambler had got to her...remember he’s basically a living “f*** it up” machine. He touched her and blitzed out her powers ...

Re: Uncanny X-Men #14

That’s a different assessment of the Morlocks and X-Men’s relationship than I get. Perhaps when the Morlocks were in their initial form as a particular group of underground dwelling mutants, that was possible. During Storm’s reign as leader, you could argue she could have done more for them. But hin...

Re: Random Thoughts

If I’m understanding your comment right, BC, I think you’re making a good point. The ignorance of the public on a topic undermines its democratic legitimacy. I don’t know how much the public understands the EC, but to the extent its just something nobody gets and wants to think about, the failure t...

Re: Random Thoughts

We’ll have to agree to disagree about that last part. Not because of philosophical difference we may or may not have but because I don’t think most people feel enough about the larger topic to have an opinion one way or another. If so they’d vote and behave very differently on a number of things......

I don’t think it’s an argument against/for a particular campaign but it does speak to actual popularity/appeal (now whether that’s a result of their campaign or not is a different discussion, I’d still argue to the death with Trump, his campaign is non-factor here because you would have to completel...

Realistically what else could Cyke do? He got them safe haven in a friendly country. Where they’ll at least have some autonomy. I guess he could have surrendered them to the hostile US government? Let them stay in Harry’s Hideaway with him? Move them to the ruins of Utopia? A mostly unprotected trac...

So alot happened this issue but one thing I had to point out was that Wraith is looking for Knull. Why is that relevant? Knull is the progenitor of the symbiotes and the god-butcher sword (from Thor)...two things that are hugely relevant. Let me find out Cates is connecting a gigantic space narrativ...

Avengers #17

Great ending to the arc...things “end” while at the same time there’s still more to come, love it.

And leave it to a former X-Men writer to bring back Drac’s son from an arc I think is super underrated
