  1. What's everyone's thoughts on if Superheros should age? Sort of a TL;DW mixed with my commentary: They bring up how when Sue Storm was pregnant and in-real-time 9 months, which I can't see working. A simple 6 issue story arc would indicate it would take a hero 6 months to defeat every villain. Some villains certainly should get that longevity, but with the medium it builds the foundation that either things must be happening between issues so you'll never know everything, or it will be rife for in-jokes about how "he only attacks once a month!" I do love the idea of Robin aging into Nightwing, but it took 44 years (1940-1984) to age 10-15 years (8 years old - 18? 23?). And if a character is so bankable, like Peter Parker, that Marvel is deadset on keeping him around for the next 100 years, make it canonical that the spider-bite has him age slower, or he needs a Lazarus pit, or his consciousness has been implanted in a life model decoy. And it's not like having a character die from old age or because their age handicapped them in a fight and were killed, it's not like people don't get resurrected, maybe to their prime age. Someone could get Captain America'd in a block of ice and make a big return. But aging characters allows them to mature and do new things, like be a mentor to newer heroes, or live a quieter life until they're victimized by a new big-bad and need a new hero to save them. And if someone signs onto Marvel really wanting to do a prime Steve Rogers story but brass says he's old and he's staying old, there's nothing wrong with doing a period piece. "These events happened in the 1990s, which can impact the present day cannon now."
  2. Anyone got a recommendation for a longer Marvel story arc? Been considering Age of Apocalypse or Spider-Man Clone Saga but can't think of any long arcs like that they can contend with
  3. Wow 17 days worth of MBMBAM? Looking at my statistics, they're in my top 3 at 1 day 7 hours, but they're beat by Glass Cannon Podcast with 2 days 16 hours and Last Podcast On The Left at 4 days 10 hours

  5. Cop Out isn't in the Die Hard universe? A Die Hard prequel is actually something I'd be interested in. Len Wiseman probably isn't the director best suited to tell that story though. And Bruce Willis isn't someone I'd want anywhere near it either
  6. Like most shows the first season is really everyone (writers and cast) trying to get a grip on what the show and their characters are. Season 2 I found infinitely more enjoyable, as is season 3
  7. Hey are you talking about Iron Fist, protector of K'un-Lun, sworn enemy of the Hand?
  8. Every time they dig up something wonderful from my childhood, I hope for the best and fear Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" on Spike TV
  9. 60 / 75 graphic novels. Gonna go for prose novels next year, which will be a real challenge as it's not my strong suit, so maybe 3 or 4
  10. Because all the movies I wanted to see had just left theaters within the last few weeks, caught Downsizing. Was not the movie the trailer made it out to be. The drama is without stakes, direction, or momentum, the comedy is sparsely sprinkled in, and the much foreshadowed Honey I Shrunk The Kids hijinks were completely without fulfillment. Alexander Payne would have never gotten his boring environmentalist propaganda slice-of-life snoozefest greenlit without the hook of the first twenty minutes of sci-fi intrigue.
  11. Within the last month at /r/MUBookClub I've read some pretty cool books. 1) Star-Lord (2016) "Grounded" - It wasn't game-changing by any means but it had some great comedy moments, particularly at the end. It's just fun for fun's sake. Almost in the same ballpark as Superior Foes of Spider-Man. A solid 4 *'s. 2) Carnage (2015) vol 1. "The One That Got Away" - really cool concept for the first few issues of it, then it sort of jumps the shark a little. But the inspiration to commonly known horror movies are pretty up-front-and-center and really feels like an ode to the genre. Another 4 *'s. 3) New X-Men (2001) #114-117 "E Is For Extinction" - Grant Morrison's starting point on the run. I feel like it probably gets a lot better, or is remembered so fondly for the dramatic upswing in quality from the issues prior. As a jumping-on point for me though it just felt okay. There were two scenes that really struck me - one very sad, one very comical and badass, but the rest didn't do much for me. 3 *'s. 4) Taskmaster (2010) by Fred Van Lente - strong recommend. It's a short mini-series detailing the character's backstory and more about him in the present, and like all good villain stories, it's full of sympathy-evoking tragedy. 5 *'s. 5) Truth: Red, White, and Black (2003) - I've seen articles call this a WTF awful mini-series, and I've seen others praise it. I'm glad I checked it out, because I would have easily dismissed it, but it was pretty good. It had it's share of flaws but it had some resoundingly huge balls being so blunt educating about treatment of blacks throughout American history. I don't know how to star-rating something that I think is vitally important to my development but still has some glaringly annoying detractions, so I'll just say 3 *'s, but an important 3 *'s.
