My favorite is that people want to have that argument won’t even touch those kind of different reality questions...which matter.

For example: The Speed Force doesn’t exist in the MU, so you can’t really say how effective Flash would be in their world. Or like is the astral plane or telepathy the same in the DBZ universe as it is in the MU? I mean they are nerdy things but they matter...and the pro-Goku people never want to establish that or even discuss it. Instead Goku just wins...

Dragon Ball GT was good but it doesn't stand on it's own. You can't really appreciate the good in it until you've seen all that came before. Goku as a warrior is basically a reactive fighter. He counter-attacks and learns as a fight goes but he wouldn't pre-plan just dive in and rely on his physical power to survive until he figures out how to counter his opponent's techniques.

Ultimately I'm a Krillin and Piccolo fan. Gohan too mostly for the lulz. Gohan and Videl are such a cute couple.

Sadly very few fans actually want an intelligent debate. They just want to slam their fandom around like it's a club.

Goku would lose in most Goku vs Fights because there's too much others can do to win against him.

Superman? Basically a god at max power. Goku can't compare.
Sailor Moon? Basically a goddess at max power. See above.
Batman? Prep time. Goku should win, but he'd do something stupid that would give Bruce an opening.

Flash seems like he'd be useless in MU. Considering all of his power comes from the Speed Force. Though didn't want of them BECOME the Speed Force so he might be useful...

So seeing Chloe from Smallville arrested for being apart of a sex cult was sad...I'm just hoping that she was actually undercover for the Smallville paper.

I'm surprised it took so long. This was common knowledge for over a year or more.

Whether you liked it or hated it, Thanos makes it kinda hard for DC to do Darkseid unless they really play up the cosmic-ness of him. Like they definitely have to go with the Final Crisis like Darkseid of him being the personification of evil type of thing. Otherwise people will definitely compare him to Thanos alot...

The biggest issue is Darkseid and Thanos looking too close to each other. They're like early Mortal Kombat Scorpion and Subzero. Visually similar except for a palette swap, but completely different in just about every other way.

So I was looking at Box Office Mojo and the all-time (no inflation adjusted) top worldwide grossing films and it's interesting that BP is the only one in the top 23 that had more than half it's gross come from domestic gross. The rest of those films had a majority (some had a slim majority like The Force Awakens and Last Jedi...others had more than 2/3s of their gross come from overseas like Fate of the Furious and Furious 7).

Just some interesting things I picked up from looking at the top 100 grossing films (again worldwide)

MCU makes up 10 films in the top 100 (Infinity War is already #95 after not even a full week...most notable is that all of the Marvel films grossed way more than $200, with all but Infinity War grossing more than $300 just domestically...whereas alot of the top films didn't cross the $200 mill domestically...BP's domestic take is only surpassed by Titanic and TFA and the other Star Wars films and Jurassic World are like RIGHT next to it...no other MCU film grossed that much at home yet though. Avengers come close with $625 mill to BP's $688...Avengers still is MCU's highest overall grossing film at 1.5 bill and AoU at 1.4 bill)
DC has 3 (WW, JLA, and SS)
Harry Potter has 8.
Star Wars has 6.
Spider-Man (non-MCU) has 4.
The Fast and Furious franchise has 3 (with 2 in the top 20...and one in the top 10)
Disney has 19 non-Marvel and Star Wars films
Titanic is the highest ranked non-2000s/2010s film (#2)

Films with 50% or more of their gross being domestic to the USA have this in common: they are space operas (TFA, Phantom Menance, and The Last Jedi are just a little bit over 50% in the international direction, but Rogue One and the OG Star Wars both are more in the domestic direction), more female leads (BP, Rogue One, Finding Dory, Wonder WOman, The Hunger Games Catching Fire is barely over towards the international direction), and E.T. LOL

Outside of the Fast and Furious franchise, Titanic, and Avatar alot of the films with more than 70% of their gross being international did not do that good here in the states LOL...
