Re: Why isn't Captain Marvel more popular?

Regarding the OP... :roll: Captain Marvel's popularity is complicated issue. He's been around very nearly as long as Superman and they started out competing for readers. National Comics Publications v. Fawcett Publications copyright infringement lawsuit didn't help. As a result, CM's title was cance...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

"Evil will triumph because good is stupid." Close. You got the gist of it, but it actually goes... So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb. Gotta love Mel Brooks movies... Well, some of of 'em, anyhow... :mrgreen: (My personal favorite is Young Frankenstein . M...

Re: Multiple movement modes in a single move

I suppose you could do so narratively, so you can take 3 steps and leap/fly/dive into water/whatever, but mechanically it should be treated as a single movement mode for a single movement action. If actions aren't indivisible, you get into a world of micro-actions that gets more complex than I susp...

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Well, just about everything I wanted to say about this movie is already said by other people so, on a different track: Man, Cobie Smulders is a total knockout. Despite Scarlett Johansson being a beautiful woman and me being a total sucker for redheads, and me usually preferring ladies with longer h...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

There are any number of ways the character-who-must-not-be-named could change sides yet again and again. Deep cover, although the extreme actions of said character make me doubt it. Some sort of mind control/brainwashing, although that's pretty cliche. Said character could be an LMD imposter. :mrgre...

Re: what pl?

Skye, Fits, and Simmons are probably pl 4, as they don't do a lot of combat. May and Coulson are probably pl 5. Ward is probably pl 6, as he's the most combat active. I could probably agree with your ratings, except that there's no way Ward has a higher combat PL than May. May would have to be at l...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. I'm not trying to say it was entirely a bad thing... It was a pretty good episode... But I already watched Buffy (and Angel ). Coulson's team is looking even more like the Scooby Gang after "Turn, Turn, Turn" than it was before. There's some mix-n-match...

Re: S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series by Whedon

I really hate to say it, because I think it was a good episode... But they telegraphed most of the "twists"... Not too obviously and not far in advance, but the clues were all there. Without getting all spoiler-ish, there was only one character I was incorrectly suspicious of. :roll: And yes, the ep...

I don't get it. When was Steve a snarky teenage thief? *ducks and runs* ...i have no response to that... :roll: [NOTE: Okay, so I do have a response or forty, but they all involve much wailing and gnashing of teeth over the current state of DC comics, and I don't wanna go there.

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The strangest issue I had with special effects in man of steel was the uncanny valley effect of Zod's face.... The strange part being is that Zod's face wasn't CGI.... Yet I kept on having the disconcerting feeling that I was looking at a CGI animation that wasn't quite right & so I kept on getting...

Re: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I didn't hate Man of Steel nearly as much as some. I just thought they did a very poor job capturing the character of Superman. The acting and effects were fine and the story wasn't terrible. It just wasn't Superman . Winter Soldier did a much better job of capturing the character of Cap. He made an...

If so, there's a ton of 'em over at http://www.medinnus.com/rt_art/.

If not, sorry, but that's the closest I can come up with to what you described.
