Thread Game Grumps Community |OT| No Longer Accepting D-Club Applications
They only do the Zelda playthroughs because they get hits. After the reveal of why they stopped the Detroit playthrough it has become a sad thing. Guys like Markiplier, JackSepticEye and even Suzi have the advatage of playing whatever they want and getting hits . The Grumps require Arin raging and missing tutorial aspects. While Dan remains chill. Anything else results in low views and requires them to move to different game. The only outliers are when Dan plays games instead of Arin.

Thread Did any other sitcom have a serious/downer ending as The Dinosaurs?
Let me reword. It was the only thing that was handled well in the entire finale. Ted telling his kids the story as a way to share after she has passed is sweet. It tugs at the heart strings in a good way. Compared to the assassination of Robin and Barney's relationship and the ridiculousness of other future events they showed, it was the only thing that was handled even sorta okay. It wasn't good in a "I'm glad it happened" sort of way.

First. They fixed Lola by actually giving her a character. Also obligatory: Second. The sitcom format really worked. Third. Added Daffy was so annoying but in a good way. Fourth. The CGI Roadrunner cartoons were really uninspired. Fifth. Tina Russo deserves more love. Sixth. Granny as a WW2 spy is the best episode. Lastly. It was gone way too soon and deserved 3 more seasons.

Okay, okay. Real talk. Why wasn't it called Power Rangers Dino Knights? Like I would have gotten interested a lot quicker if it was called that. I like the theme song but just a bit too synthy.

Thread Celebrating Women Characters in Comics.
Sage's character is so awesome. Basically a telepathic living computer that was subjugated by Sebastian Shaw. Not even having a name, only the one he gave her. Only to free herself and become more. She has has been one of my favorite X-Women. Shout out to Jubilee! Chinese American child born of immigrants. They named her Jubilation for the feeling they had when she was born. Parents died. She lived in a mall and was a literal mall rat. Was attacked by mutant hunters and saved by Rogue, Storm, Psylocke and Dazzler. Walked through Gateway's portal and saved Wolverine from crucifixion and became a staple of both the X-Men and Generation X. Then was depowered. Became Wondra of the New Warriors with tech powers. Was turned into a into a vampire during the mutant war with the vampires. Became a single mom when she adopted a orphaned baby (while being a vampire.) Restored to mortality and an active X-Gene. And that's not even getting into her solo series.

Thread "Hellsing" live-action movie coming to Amazon from John Wick writer
Eh. I find charm in both. I do find the Manga Alucard to be a bit of the standard type of protagonist for the era. That's not to say he's bad character at all. I've cosplayed as him several times before Team Four Star even existed so I do love the character. In my older age I've just become a bit more fond of immortal characters who decide that they will just do what they want which is why Abridicard is more appealing.

Actually what would be neat is a bit of all off the above. Earth is the primary setting per Secret Wars II and a human looking Beyonder as an antagonist. The "Slay your enemies and all you desire shall yours!" and the desire to understand good and evil aspect from Secret Wars I. And then have it all go to hell, reality is going to be destroyes and Doom steals the power and create the Battleworld. Could easily be a three movie epic with tie in movies in between.

Thread Would you rather be part of the Justice League or the Avengers
I don't know I've been pretty 50/50 most my life as far as reading comics goes and I'm all Avengers. Had the question been X-Men or Teen Titans or Champions or Justice Society ... I'd probably still be thinking about it. For me the Avengers are just more of the "you made it" team. If you are asked to join the Avengers you've either proven yourself beyond a shadow of doubt or earned a once in a life time chance. You have an opportunity to not only walk among legends, but to become one yourself. With the Justice League it feels less grand (especially the JLU version) you are there because you have potential. And though you walk among Gods, you will probably never be one of them. To put it another way. When you are an Avenger it's your story. When you are a League Member, it's still thier story.

Thread Manga has been praised for having a consistent writer, but what I like about American comics is seeing different takes on characters and stories
They both have their advantages and disadvantages. Single creator stories have the advantage that they often have a consistent story that is told well. Big tent comics with multiple creators have the advantage that a new creative team can think of new ideas the previous team didn't think of. But it does go both ways. Single creator stories can be bad, and without outside input can continue to be bad. They also still have to answer to editors sometimes. Such as why the Android/Cell Saga of Dragon Ball has its main antagonist change three times. They also have the potential problem of the creator not wanting to finish the story. This leads to drawn out story arcs that progress past natural end points, filler story arcs, and a general meandering around the resolution of a story. Once a story becomes popular you have the marketing dept come in and ask for new merchandise to sell because the story is popular and you are forced to add new outfits and transformations and new characters. Big tent comics with multiple creators have different problems. You have some one given a book and have bad ideas for how the characters should progress, but they are signed for 12 issues so it just is allowed to happen. Editors can get in the way as well such as with the Spider-Man Clone Saga that was extended well past its original shelf life (marketing department had something to do with that too.) Then you have the concept of the "toy box" and lazy retcons. A good example is Brian Michael Bendis and his X-Men run. He wanted to play with the Original X-Men team and tell stories about being unhappy with the future they were leading too. At the end he put all the toys back in the box and didn't care about the consequences of his stories. Leaving other creators to clean up after him. But both concepts could borrow from each other. A Single creator book could get some outside input. A big tent book could allow for much longer creator runs. Neither is better or worse, in general, they are just different.

Moore with Watchmen was because he was told NOT to us those characters by DC. He then made his own universe with his own characters. He was forced into that, it wasn't an artistic decision. He did later use other people's characters and put a darker tone to them. It was called " League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" Then he did it again when he created a history for Rob Liefeld's Extreme Universe with Judgement Day.

Mystique's Brotherhood of Mutants had just raided her lab and killed all the scientists and research. This is when Destiny realizes what Moria is and needs to make very clear what the will happen if Moria continues her work in another life.

So I have been following this thread but this single part of the OP is still bugging me. As some of you may know I have worked in the adult entertainment industry both in front and behind the camera. Why should such things be banned? This isn't the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, etc. In the 2020s and before women have been at the forefront of both the porn and sex work industries. Taking control of it. And while there is still A LOT of work to do to make all off those industries more favorable to female workers it has been getting better. The rise of cam modeling, Onlyfans, ManyVids, etc has made it so sex workers can control their own content. If prostitution was universally legal with similar controls it could help sex workers of any gender. So why, when it's on the verge of universal acceptance do you want it to be banned?

It was Cockrum's idea. Claremont shot it down. I had forgotten it until I rewatched an interview with Claremont today. The legend is that after Giant Sized X-Men both creator's had the idea. In truth it was Cockrum's idea and Claremont just wanted to make him older than Wein's teenager idea and wanted the claws to be part of his body instead of just in the gauntlets. To paraphrase Claremont, "If his claws are in his gauntlets than anyone wearing the gauntlets are Wolverine." I honestly think making Wolvie older and more experienced than most of the Giant Sized team, and making the claws part of his body were good calls.

The similar idea Crisis on Infinite Earths over at DC didn't happen till 50 years of DC comics. Even if you want to say accelerated timeline because real world and all its still to early. There wouldn't be enough build up unless they didn't pay it off for 5 more phases. There single issues of the Incursion plot in the comics that could be a movie on its own. There are also not enough pieces in place to do it. Three of the Four biggest names in the MCU are gone. The MCU is in a rebuilding phase. Some old favorites as we introduce the new blood.

Thread Favorite parts of X-men lore
Fair. I personally am still of the opinion that the "not a mutant" thing is actually a plot point tied to the Forever Gate (which is tied to all realities and worlds and times) because like John Hickman, Dan Slott is a continuity porn guy. In Superior Spider-Man Dan Slott brought back Shocker. SHOCKER!! The "VR" villain that was in love with Doc Ock. And even had Ock Spidey appear as the White Suit Doc Ock to finish the story. Love or hate Dan Slott he adores continuity. So does John Hickman. I have a feeling this Franklin stuff has a lot more before its done. Especially after the most recent issue of FF. Hickman has a history also of being coy, he did it during the Incursions, the Secret Wars, and the only Marvel reboot (which rebooted nothing except adding Ultimate Universe characters) I'm gonna let it play out.

I'm gonna need evidence for Hickman. He reestablished the status quo for the entire Marvel Universe, left everything open and even supported a controversial plot point that Dan Slott did on Fantastic Four. Bendis was told for years that Emma and Scott should get back together and wrote this: Also ignored that Emma once mocked the same outfit she suddenly started wearing. And basically mocked Emma Frost anytime he could. The powerful woman who owned her sexuality was suddenly reduced to being called a slut and sleeps in comedy positions. Bendis burns his toys on the way out and leaves others to try to fix them.

I'll say it. Brian Michael Bendis is and always has been a bad comic writer. He wants to play with established superheroes but gives no respect to what became for him or after him. His writing for the original 5 X-Men. He had the costumes redesigned from the Steve Ditko original designs and their "Graduation" outfits. Instead giving them a very generic team costumes complete with see through glasses (except Cyclops) The O5 didn't become interesting until others were writing for them. And don't even get to me about he ruined the Superman family. Al Ewing will close the door on the Hulk being literally immortal but he's doing the Hulk has been presented as nearly immortal since Peter David was writing the book. He's establishing that all the Hulk's we've seen since the 60s have been actual characters. The Devil Hulk from then begining, the Big Guy, Joe Fixit, etc. But when Al is done he's is not burning the toys. He will put some back in toybox and giving a direction. The only thing he might close is the new forms for Doc Sampson, Red She Hulk and the transformations for Hulk.

Thread Favorite parts of X-men lore
Three pages in and I just realized I haven't really shared, just corrected or added to other people's things. For me... Well it's complicated. When I first started reading Uncanny X-Men it was the Australia Era. When I first really started paying attention it was Xtinction Agenda. I think my favorite lore of the X-Men isn't so much any particular thing, but rather how the lore can, for lack of a better word, evolve. How the stories can be 4 Color super heroics like the original X-Men. How it can be Space Opera. It can be melodrama. It can be magic and cosmic horrors. It can be about social justice and discrimination. It can be about slavery and human rights. It can even be about science denial and and the various -phobias. Since I started reading X-Men comics I've experienced (through both the issues of the day and the old X-Men Classic reprints) so many stories of every variety, and it wasn't always about being superheroes like other cape comics. I've seen the X-Men watch one of thier own become like a God and sacrifice herself rather than destroy everything in a passionate rage. They have face off against a xenomorph type threat, that was going to destroy an entire galactic empire. Fight against a man who kidnaps people and puts them in a Murder World while wearing a white suit and bowtie. Fight Magneto on an Island that happened to have a doorway to a demonic dimension that was ruled by a one armed Cat demon sorcerer. Infiltrate a government institution to enter a computer virus into the computer systems that will erase any mention of them or their identities from any database. Be transformed into Conan Era setting and have to fight one of Conan's Nemesis with the rest of NYC heroes. Face a omniversal television executive with literally no spine who rules his dimensions with ratings. He then turns them into toddler versions of themselves. Go to Asgard with one their number becoming a God and another falling in love with another God. Sacrificing their lives on live television to seal away an ancient trickster god and being resurrected and made invisible from cameras by the daughter of Merlyn. Literally watching the clone who was made of and was also their teammate make a deal with demons and bringing a literal hell to Earth. Saving a young homeless girl from mutant hunting assholes in a mall that had a male strip club in it for some reason. Being captured and put on trial by a nation that was partially run by a former villain who had previously had his head cut off and was now attached to a huge ass non humanoid mecha body. Saving former teammates from the influence from a psychic entity that had taken over an entire island. And that's the stuff from just before the 90s Era started. And not a single bit of it ever felt out of place with the X-Men comics. The mythos of the X-Men allows for all of those things to work without even using the shared universe of comics. All of those things were just things that happened to mutants, with the exception of two of those event. And I could honestly go on for a LOT longer. Even skipping the the modern Era with stuff like X-Corp, Sublime, Academy X, Utopia, Custom Mutant Powers as designer drugs, the Messiah Complex and War and Second Coming, etc. The lore of the X-Men is distinct and varied. And also can crossover with more traditional cape comics seamlessly. And no the concept of "Why do people hate mutants but not the Fantastic Four doesn't count. As once pointed out by Headmistress of the Xavier Institute, Emma Frost, the X-Men deal with mutant problems, sometimes the other superheroes don't even notice they happen and don't come to help. So I love X-Men, every bit of it. Even the silly parts.

It's this. I remember when Saban got Power Rangers back from Disney and it was going to "save" Power Rangers (after one of the objectively best seasons with RPM) And it all fell apart with Samurai. Granted part of the problem was Nickelodeon didn't have any care or respect for the show. Hell they showed the 3rd episode first, and the first two episodes last. But Samurai is only a mediocre show at best with no care or creativity. Only thing it gave us was a main character female Red Ranger who was way too good an actor for the series she was in and a decent crossover movie (extremely flawed but decent) Megaforce revealed that the Emperor had no Clothes. Saban didn't give a crap about Power Rangers. Just cared about putting the Saban's name on the Power Rangers IP and milking it of money. I was actually HAPPY when Hasbro got it because at least I felt like Hasbro would TRY.

It's Actually very accurate. TOS was all Kirk/McCoy/Spock because they were the stars because that's how TV was back then.

Voyager was Paris/Kim, Kes/Doctor, Neelix/Tuvok, Seven/Janeway, Seven/Doctor, Parid/Torres. Enterprise was often Phlox/Archer, Archer/Tucker, Tpol/Tucker. The other thing is many character only had a few storylines in repeat. Riker was always romance or command Geordi was alway fix, romance or voice of reason Sisko was always command or dad Data was always humanity or property Obrien was always family or suffering Kim was always "We hate this character why didn't we kill him off" Torres was always fight, fix or sex Seven was always humanity Archer was always Vulcans And Discovery is all about Michael and making sure Ash gets punished constantly for Killing the Doctor in season 1

If he done the smart thing and just hired a PR firm to let him go into hiding for a little bit push some positive stories about him in the press, he probably would already be back to voice acting in various places. This way he's basically blacklisted from any reputable company.

Actually most companies fight it to the end unless there is a legit chance of something worse could be unearthed in discovery or the cost of the lawsuit would be higher than the settlement. We hear about all the big settlements in the news because they are rare, not because they are common. Only things that tend to settle before trial is personal injury lawsuits, and that is because it's usually more expensive to go to trial, than just pay the asking price.

It honestly seems like the whole point was to file that piece of shit, knowing he'd fix it even later and catch the defense "by surprise" Remember when they were trying to spin the missing footnotes as part of the technical errors. After reading the transcript he seemed to be thinking that he could blame the tech errors, get the defense writing responses and the file a new one that would have things they weren't prepared for. He seemed to think he was allowed to update his entire petition based on the "summary judgment" phase. He seemed to not realize that the TCPA was not a summary judgment thing. Or if he did realize it, he thought he could still get away with it. Turns out he was wrong on all counts, but I'm still convinced he thought he could blindside the defense like it was a courtroom drama.

It will be a problem. See the GFM is out of money. Meaning the money that will be awarded to the current Defendants is coming out of Vic's pocket. Even if they try to raise money for a "second wave" Vic being nearly bankrupted by the first wave will probably give him pause. I firmly believe that the only reason these lawsuits happened is because Vic saw it as a free pay day. Once it hits his own wallet it will be different. Rooster Teeth is also operated out of Texas meaning the TCPA is still there. He has even less of a case against them. And Rooster Teeth is under Warner Media, meaning another set of high priced lawyers to help bankrupt Vic further if he does it. Unless you think his fans can raise him 1.5 million dollars, there isn't going to be a second wave.

So I decided to go with what Greg said and factored in what Jamie might have been paying for her lawyer. So just her... Vic is responsible for. $144,000 assuming $300 an hour 40 hours a week for 3 months. Just for Jamie. Since Funimation and Monica/Ron had 50% of their cases dismissed already that brings this probably very conservative estimate to: $288,000 so far before sanctions. And some have pointed out that they doubt these lawyers are charging ONLY $300 an hour.

Regarding Mr Doucette. I will point out that when the threadnaught first started I did question whether or not following him was a good idea considering he does label himself a conservative even if of the #nevertrump variety. I did a lot of looking and tweet mining to find out what sort of man he was. And he's definitely not perfect. But he seems to be more of a conservative in name only kind of guy. And has stated he is no longer a member of the republican party. When not tweeting about Vic he's retweeting and commenting on stories about police abuses, political gerrymandering, curbing of freedoms on minority groups as well as making most of his practice defending "Street pharmacist" and "little guys." He's a little too proud of his gun and firearm practice but seems reasonable. He's not an ideal ally, but he's not horrible and in this case, is an ally. If come election time he starts staning for hard R's then I'll be happy to drop him Now onto the shit show of tomorrow. Cannot wait!

A Notary Public is personally liable for negligence or fraud in the course of performing his or her duties. The bond a Notary Public is required to post is meant to ensure that the injured party can recover up to $10,000, but the Notary can still be held personally liable for any damages he or she has caused and may be subject to criminal prosecution and revocation or suspension of his or her notary public commission. Types of notary fraud can include: Failing to acknowledge your documents Falsified stamps In the case of Notary fraud you do not have to be doing it to cause damages. Just doing a notary improperly is notary fraud. In addition to the, admittedly crappy source, I as a notary know it's fraud on my part if I do not have the person in front of me, with an unsigned document and an state issued ID, and I notarized it anyways. It would be fraud even if I did it for a hand written letter saying that the person really likes pie.

For me I wouldn't be to surprised if he is a homophobe. He has to prove it to me through deeds not words. Doesn't have anything to do with Vic suing people for defamation. Chris Sabbat should clarify if he really did send that message if he hasn't already. If he did he needs to apologize for using autistic as a slur l, even against kiwi fans. He has always seemed like an upstanding guy to me so I hope he will make amends. Doesn't have anything to do with Vic suing people for defamation. Ron Toye is a complete asshole if he beat and threatened his ex wife. I do as a default believe his ex wife, but since there actually is due process and court proceedings I'd like to see them all. He has also apologized for that behavior and sought thearpy for his issues so good on him for that. And despite being someone Vic is suing... Doesn't have anything to do with Vic suing people for defamation. Because past bad acts can not be used against a person in court and it does nothing to speak to if he's lying now or not. There.

Even if he identifies himself as conservative, I don't really see too much of the conservative in him. I'm sure it's there somewhere. But most of the cases he actually handles seems to be for disenfranchised people who need help rather than what he could be doing which is white rich people doing estate planning.

Of course they dont. "It's just a big scary phrase those damn SJWs use to silience me so it must work both ways." It's how if I would, rightly, say that Vic's behavior towardw women is a perfect example of Toxic Masculinity at work the response would be something like: SEE IT'S REALLY ALL ABOUT HATING MEN!!! Ignoring what the concept of Toxic Masculinity actually is. Honestly I'm surprised they have attacked Greg, Shane or Mike for mansplaining yet.

I was going to make this post about how the difference was that Captain Kirk was actually charming and also it was a 60 series so some of the more non-consent stuff that happens with a product of its time. Then I realized that Vic probably actually thinks he's Captain Kirk. He grew up on the original TOS series and decided to emulate that behavior. Even as times changed. And now I feel even grosser than I originally did. So glad I only watch ten minutes of Star Trek Continues before deciding it was trash. I would feel so bad right now if I had actually been a fan of that.

By mess you mean genius, correct? It's honestly a brilliant multi-issue crossover. Harkening back to the days of Mutant Massacre, Fall of the Mutants, X-tinction Agenda and to a lesser degree X-Cutioner Song. Self contained to the X Books but with all the craziness that has been part of the X Books history for a while but completely ignored. The X-Men once sacrificed thier very souls to seal away a spirit called Adversary forever (and it has been a real forever, rare for comics) Then the daughter of Merlin and ruler of Otherworld, Roma, resurrected them and made them immune to recording devices. Also gave them something called the Siege Perilous that would be important later. X of Swords perfectly adds back in this often forgotten mystical element to the X Books much like Grant Morrison's New X-Men remember the sci-fi elements. And since it's Grant Morrison he added in different mystical elements.

I don't see how this: Is jokey. Nor her attempt to atone going severely wrong jokey in the Empyre tie-in. Sometimes I think comic readers are too quick to judge ongoing story lines. Like the Franklin thing. Full Context is that Val went through the Forever Gate and met up with a person she had fallen for and encountered the worst possible scenerio. That he wanted her as part of his harem, not a monogamous relationship like she wanted. After ranting to Franklin, he tried to use the Forever Gate to go to Karoka and was told by the Xavier on the otherside he wasn't a mutant. The Forever Gate is obviously a Slott long term story idea and I have a feeling that Val messed up and it takes you to the worst versions of the place you want to go. Especially since later in the same issue the FF passed through the Forever Gate and encountered Lyja who seemed to have no idea about the events of Empyre. I wouldnt be too fast to condemn this seems to be retcon. Slott has a respect for continuity and is really good at lying to fans (Peter is dead and never coming back) you may not like his stories but he isn't a hack, he plans them out and let's them play out.

No it was Magneto's evil mixed with Xavier's frustration that became sentient inside Xavier's mind. It wasn't an outside entity. But even then Magneto's powers are genetic in nature and shouldn't cross over through psychic shenanigans. Actually it is canon that ever telepathy is also telekinetic, can do psychometry, etc. Just some are better at it then others. Even Emma has displayed telekinesis before, once when Jean inhabited her body and another time when her students were threatened. Basically if your psychic in the Marvel Universe you can do it all at various levels of skills. Still doesn't explain creating an EMP and controlling Sentinels.

The real ones went back home when the last mission was over. They are fine. Since people are having problems with understanding the latest issue I'll try to break it down a bit. Think that covers most of the backstory necessary. If anyone has questions I'll answer tommorow as I have to get to bed.

To add during that fight in the Necrosa event his emotions were totally turned off. With them on he is probably a lot more hesitant and 2nd guessing. He's also no longer has the techno organic virus to improve his speed and reflexes (or at least it seems all the Necrosa revivals are purged) He's just an athletic adult. Not superhuman, there is only so fast he can move, and so fast he can react.

I just mean that personality wise this Sinister has existed before his actual first appearance, so it's likely the "original" Sinister wasn't part of the plan as he acts very different with very different goals than our current Sinister.

I don't know. With the exception of Marauders and that one issue with Glob Herman no one has really any real impact on their characters. Excalibur to me seems to be much like the X-Men book. Alot of setup for future conflict down the road. And it's doing a lot ground building for mutant stories using magic. I see character progression in about anyone who's last name isn't Lebeau going on but it is a slower build I agree.

"A beacon slices darkness, stationed in space. A young man, born old, pilots a place." I know this is is supposed to be Cable. But does anyone else think the rest of this refers to the Peak. Headquarters of SWORD.

I do wish they'd stop calling her Psylocke. She was never Psylocke. Call her Revanche if you want her to have a post-human name. But she is technically stealing Betsy's identity... Again. In my opinion he was the best X-Men writer since Claremont. And only Hickman has been his equal.

I guess that's why right now I find him boring. He's basically the template for a Wolverine villian. Have adamantium/unbreakable weapon/claws? Check Be a distorted reflection of Logan to show either how bestially, evil, cruel or civilized he could be? Check. Have him show a superior skill the first time they meet either by beating him handedly or defeating someone he didn't? Check. All of these equally apply to Sabertooth, Silver Samurai, Razor Fist, Cyber, Albert, Romulus, Daken, Lady Deathstrike, etc. If they confirm he has a healing factor too then he is even more just the basic template Wolverine villain. I don't know maybe there will be more to him later but right now he's just the standard Wolverine villain to me.

My best guess is because while Mojo World is connected to all dimensions its not a literal nexus. Mojoworld actually remains unaffected by dimensional and timeline changes. Otherworld is where all those dimensional and timeline changes flow through.

I see your are a person of taste. I am sure that Lifeguard and Slipstream are coming. Hickman's run as X-Book runner and his pervious stories has be revealing that he is Marvel's answer to Grant Morrison. He knows all continuity. And excepts it as all true. And he has a Marvel Universe in his head that we all wish we had. The difference between Hickman and Morrison is that Hickman explains it. Morrison assumes you know. I was so happy when both Roma and Merlin were mentioned and expanded. I can't wait for other deep cuts come next.

I would actually say that the latest X Factor actually just disproves that's what's going on. If the Nexus of reality can infect the backups and give us a rockslide who isn't our rockslide than that suggests that is actually the soul or the Animus that is being put back in the body.

Actually if dying into a world that is connected to multiple dimensions at once can corrupt the backup. That means Wind Dancer is screwed. Mojoworld is connected to the entire multiverse as well. It's the only one in the entire multiverse so it might cause some problems.

What if they just didn't give him enough time to reform. I mean dude used to look like this: Then Nimrod blew him apart and he used the surrounding rubble to become this: Then deatroyed in Limbo and became this: And so on and so on. Plus the Summoner revealing that he is an energy being is nothing new. That is what they said about him the first time he reformed. Hmmm. Maybe the real problem was trying to bring a backup to life for a mutant still alive.

Well he's been "back" ever since the 3-in-1 unlocked his stored skills. I just didn't recall if he got his actual powers back as well. Considering Academy X did a story where he nearly destroyed the world and created a dystopia when he could both absorb skills and keep them indefinitely wonder if we'll ever get a hint of that.

That is a good point. It's funny getting to remember all this mystic stuff from Fall of the Mutants and Excalibur and how much like space opera, mysticism has been tied to the X-Men for a very long time. Starting with Island M and Belasco. That does remind me. Roma gave those X-Men who sacrificed themselves to defeat Adversary invisible to recording devices. What happened to that gift?

I've heard fan theories that the Siege Perilous removed the blessing. But even if that was what did it, not every X-Man walked through. Wolverine didn't do that, instead tortured by the Reavers. Xtinction Agenda and Decimation mentioned the computer virus that would erase any X-Men related information from Government databases. Even that it adds Yet Roma's Blessing is always forgotten. Hell, Mojo even called out that Betsy Braddock had lost her cybernetic eyes that transmitted her adventures to him, after she was brought back from the dead after being killed by Vargas (BTW despite being the dark years, what ever happen ed to him?) Back on topic I'm not sure that Roma's blessing has ever been explained away. There are tons of fan theories about it but I don't think there's ever been an official confirmation.

Loved X of Swords though I wish the Tarot cards were designed a bit more like actual tarot cards. Also loved the shout out to the character Tarot, my favorite Hellion. Though -A- and Archangel's conversation is a bit of a retcon as supposedly the Death form was always meant to change from metal wings to feather wings again. So in -A-'s mind Warren should be viewed as if he has technically devolved. Juggernaut was a bit meh. Didn't like or hate it. I did like in Immortal She-Hulk how Wolvie straight up kills a villian who is also a mutant and goes "Eh, he'll live. Sorta."

Unrelated with Kulan Gath being around again I'd love to see him show up in Excalibur, especially since he hates Selene. This week was a good week. The only book that didn't wow me was Giant Sized Storm and that's because Emma is right, if the virus kills Storm she's just getting resurrected. And the World stuff is my least favorite part of Fantomex lore, so between the two I just was kinda there and not as invested as I should have been. The art was fabulous though.

Marvel lost the rights to Conan they basically stopped using Selene for a while since her origin is tied to the Hyborian Age. In the mean time they made Apocalypse, introduced that he was the first mutant, and tied him to ancient Egypt. Selene was then tied more to ancient Rome, which she already had ties to anyways and they just stopped mentioning how damn old she was. Then the rights to Conan were required and well... Here we are. Because Hickman loves a good continuity deep dive.

During Bendis's run he became obsessed with showing Cyclops how wrong he was. So he basically broke the timeline by bringing the original five X-Men to the present so they could see how bad Cyclops is now. He did this why all of reality was starting to fall apart because of things like... People time traveling frivolous. He then refused to send them back. And that was the beginning of his fall. He was so upset that his lifelong friend had done things he didn't approve of that he began to lose his own morals trying to show Cyclops how wrong he was.

Actually Bendis was the start. Before that Beast had actually left the team because of X-Force and other decisions Scott had made while on Utopia. He was actually being portrayed as a man who had such moral integrity that he would compromise for nothing. Even during Endangered Species he worked with Dark Beast and realized what a bad idea it was to compromise for the greater good. Bendis was the beginning of the end of moral Hank.

It's mostly power plays. The whole "your beneath my notice" thing. Other times is because he is deep in thought and doesn't want to be disturbed. Also in the comics, Thanos speaks for himself usually. He didn't really have minions until recently.

Liked Cable. But especially like Emma's reaction to Cable. And Emse is right. Emma would totally do that. Also I know they don't have the rights anymore, but everyone thinks that final transmission was to Rom right? New Mutants was a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I liked how the Dox site really was just regular people and there is no sinister organization behind it. Glob Herman's backstory is so sad and you can see how he became Kid Omega's flunky. Wolverine continues to just be okay. It really suffers from seeming like it has no direction.
