Re: Hypothetical

2 - Is it me? In regards to this issue, I think my answer would be predicated on a "continuation of consciousness". Logical or not, I feel like there's a major difference in a process in which I could somehow "move" my conscience to a new body and one where a "copy" of my conscience is downloaded i...

Re: Hypothetical

Your quality of life is manageable, but your physical abilities are substantially limited. There are many things you used to be able to do that you cannot do anymore and will never do again. You are not in pain, and the condition is not progressive or deteriorating. This is not a question so much ab...

Re: Random Thoughts

Made my first appearance before the state Supreme Court today. Scintillating arguments about the “best evidence rule” and the “business records exception to the rule against hearsay.” I actually had a pretty live bench; they snored through the state’s argument.

Re: DC Supergirl Show

NuD is right though. It's really the most irksome thing about these shows. At least Black Lightning has avoided it MOSTLY (although they do a bit of a variation on the theme by having it be typical teenage angst against their parents as a stand in for "horrible secrets"). I find my love of superher...

Re: DC Supergirl Show

Actually, after binging a chunk of s1, Mars does ok with the secrets thing. Mostly they have realistic narrative context, and there are not a whole lot of preposterous overreactions.

The real weakness are the fact that Mars and her dad are constantly committing felonies, and nobody bats an eye.

Re: DC Supergirl Show

Secrets are the currency of all soap dramas though...Jane the Virgin (a brilliant TV show) used it but it’s like a procedural using”whodunit”. That said, Arrow overused it and used it very bluntly. Well, maybe that’s why soaps are pretty universally derided. Too much reliance on poorly written trop...

I used to think it was a Guggenheim/Berlati thing. But I guess you are telling me it happens on every DCCW show? (I only watch the superhero shows). Guggenheim even pulled it in X-Men with Kitty and Piotr.

I mean, as CW shows go, it’s in the top tier. It’s the same teen soapy melodrama, but with a dash of police procedural and Bell’s winning smile.

I basically noped out of last season because it was getting WAY too heavy handed with the illegal immigrant allusions, but returned for the season premiere. Good to know CW has their recap game on fleek because I don't really feel like I missed a lot. With that said, I could do without "my friend k...

Re: DCEU Films vs. DC Films

Can anyone explain the distinction between the DC Extended Universe films and DC Films films? I know that DC Films started following BvS and the criticism of the DCEU franchise that followed. I can't seem to make sense, however, ofwhat the distinction actually is. Is it that DCEU films share a univ...

Re: X-Men #1 (SPOILERS)

Scott, Alex and Lorna would all have been X-men together during the lost years between 1970-75. Hardly. The sporadic appearances the X=Men made were the O5, and in Byrne’s hidden years, iirc, Lorna and Alex were off in college. Regardless, sure they’re friends. But the kind of intimacy shown in tha...

To much stuff changed, to many character inconsistencies, and no one cares about ethnics (the cloning) anymore. All former enemies are friends and allies. That’s to much for me.
yeah, no one cares about cloning ethnics anymore!

Nu-D, have you read other Hickmann stuff like SHIELD or both FF series? Shield was created from the scratch and woven into continuity, and the FFs got story extensions and not such big origin recons like his current X run.

The dialogue between Scott and Lorna was weird. What does Scott mean, “I have you, and your father, and my kid...”? It almost sounded like Scott and Lorna are in a relationship, and Scott’s somehow related to Eric. I wondered if maybe the art was screwed up and it was supposed to be Alex, or maybe ...

Re: Random Thoughts

I had no idea you were a black man. Or a man. Actually, I kinda assumed you were a blonde woman, since your avatar is Emma. Which is ridiculous, of course, since I definitely am not two white women.

(Actually, I guess I shouldn’t assume you identify as black or male, sorry).

Yeah, but Duggan made a point of telling us Kate is acting out of character. Why say that if it’s not a plot point? Chekhov’s gun and all that. In an interview or something? Because I certainly don't see anything out-of-character in the issue. Emma says, “Kate, you’re the kind of person who would n...

Interesting theory but I think we gotta start just accepting these are the X-Men. Some people just keep trying to find reasons to make them “their X-Men” (Xavier controlling minds and now Malice) and maybe, just maybe, it is exactly as it seems? Yeah, but Duggan made a point of telling us Kate is a...

I’m not sure it was ever stated that Malice is a mutant. But even if she is, the absence of a choker Doesn’t mean Malice wasn’t present; just means she wasn’t in control.
