We barely won. Rocket was definitely neutered by the collection. But Groot's various I am Groot cards and Rocket's batteries saved the day. Rocket doesn't steal batteries he doesn't need. He needs them ALL! Also since they were mentioned here are the Etsy listing for the trays and box inserts. And here is the website I get my dividers from, I print them on cardstock and laminate them.

Thread Watchmen 2009. Liked it?
They took out the squid and made Rorschach look like he was right. It does miss the point that the comic was saying. But it did most things well. I'm honestly not a huge fan of the message of the comic itself anyways. The movie does stumble, but it hits the important points. And the opening was entirely on point. Showing a world of superheroes since the 40s. I also like Night Owl actually caring about Rorschach's death. You definitely need to watch it with the Ultimate Edition with the shipwreck comic put back in, because that informs on the plot a lot and makes the pacing work better. Basically it's a flawed adaption, but not a horrible one. Great Soundtrack though!

No... They are full of hate. They are literally an apex predator that can be picked up and cuddled, trust me as much as they love us they hate us at the same time. As for proof of the Apex predator thing. As a much younger person I had a cat named Tippie(my first cat) . Back then I was an idiot and I let my cats outside. Not only did she once bring me literally two dead rats holding each one by their tail on either side of her mouth. She once lept off my porch to catch a bird out of the air mid flight and kill it. She then looked at me for approval.

Thread Johnny Depp Jury Finds That Amber Heard Defamed Him in Op-Ed
Marilyn Manson, until very recently was considered a great musician. To the point that even the Born Again Christian, Alice Cooper made him and Johnny Depp part of a superband for a few years, until Manson couldn't stay sober on tour, which Alice hated. Manson is a rapist and possibly worse, but him texted Depp does not make Depp a domestic abuser. Depp however got to stay in that band. Erectile dysfunction, is definitely a reason to end a relationship. It can make your partner feel undesired. It has nothing to do with domestic violence. The nudes thing is a litle harder to defend, because I does suggest that Heard is a "slut" thus she "deserved it" but everything submitted was using it in a different way. And finally, because she divorced him before the latest Pirates money came in also doesn't mean she had no reason to defame him. Yes I oversimplified, but that's because I assumed every one of this thread had already been following the trial and it was actually going on.

Thread Ms.Marvel’s Iman Vellani aka Kamala Khan exclusive interview with New Rockstars Erik Voss
She litteraly can transform sound into every form of light. Then became a (Disco) Pop Star, then eventually traveled the universe sharing her music with everyone. And before she even left Earth... She teamed up with Spider-Man, fought Enchantress, the Absorbing Man and Doctor Doom. Became a popular musician on Earth. And all of that is BEFORE she joined the X-men. The idea that a mutant character MUST become an X-Men is silly, because the mold was broken by Dazzler in the 70s. Add to that, Speed and Wiccan (Wanda's kids) have never been associated with the X-Men. An the official first published mutant, Namor refused offers from both the X-Men and the Brotherhood until very recently (in comic terms) it makes the argument even similar. Heck, Namor wants nothing to do with the current X-Men stuff, and only joined in the first place because they offered him a safe place to let his people live as Atlantis had been destroyed for the 500th time during Initiative. Edit: also not Dazzler movie when. Dazzler 18 episode, multi season D+ show WHEN?

Thread So why has no one in the MCU mentioned that there's a big Celestial sticking out of Earth right now?
Yes this is true, but not usually from movie to movie. My real point is that people don't talk about events all the time. Even in the Netflix series is the events of Avengers was only mentioned like twice and that was in context of the greater ramifications of super people running around. My point: I don't know to me it just seems like people wanting these things to be referenced in every single movie is the same energy as the whole "Where's Poochy" thing. Mention the thing that happened in the last movie/TV show so I know the movie I watched was in the MCU. As a comic fan, I love crossovers and continuity. But I recognize it does not always need to be mentioned. It's a shared universe but not everyone is going to refer to something that happen even days ago, let alone months or years ago.

Thread Comic Era, why has Tim Drake failed to permanently transition from being Robin
I've been mulling it over for many days now. Because Tim Drake is absolutely one of my favorite characters in DC. And honestly the reason he never seems to move past the Robin stuff is that they have never really tried. Not really. Honestly they should have put him on a team that is not the Teen Titans and had him gradually change to a new identity. And yes I know that is pretty much the same path that Grayson took but there's a reason why Nightwing stuck and none of Tim Drake's identies did. As for what sort of identity he should have? I actually like the idea of them focusing on the fact that he wants to be the world's greatest detective rather than Batman. I like the idea of him working with Constantine and Detective Chimp and other characters of that like. And as has been suggested multiple times but, hey DC owns the name Gray Ghost and they're not doing anything with it...

Thread So why is Marvel pushing Captain Carter so much ?
Animal empathy is a great super power! I will die on that hill! But to the rest of your point, I feel that's the point. He's more of an every man (more in the comics than the MCU) and can inspire us to be more. Which to me is something that superhero stories should do. Inspire us to be more. That's why despite the flaws of Falcon and the Winter Solider it was one of my favorites. It took us to the worst injustices and told us the answers aren't just punching bad guys in the face. And that a man who should by all right hate the stars and stripes, can still wear them to inspire use to stand for the ideals that the United States supposed were founded for. Steve Rogers was created by two Jewish Men who wanted to mock Hitler by having a blond hair, blue eyed "ubermensch" reject everything the Nazis claimed to belive in. Sam Wilson became Cap in the comics to remind us that we are not as good as we should be. That American Dream is a lie, but doesn't have to be. And the MCU story, flawed as it was, tied to those same ideas. We can be a better nation. We just need to be shown the way and follow.

Thread How do you bring Magneto into the MCU? (He'd be very old with his origin)
So in the first X-Men film Magneto's origin is shown at the beginning. He then did nothing until the year 2000. He just recruited a few mutants and stayed hidden. I don't see how this would really be a problem at all in the MCU either. Charles and Magneto have been recruiting and keeping mutants hidden because they know they won't be accepted. No complex story, no multiverse shinanigans, just "based on what we know, we know we will be feared and hated so we stayed hidden"

Yeah honestly Moira turning on the mutants was telegraphed from the second and no precog rule came into effect. I believe I'm on record saying before Inferno, that the only reason for there to be no precog would be if she was planning on betraying the mutants again. I mean if it was just a grudge then it would be no Destiny. It's sad other precogs such as Blindfold were denied the resurrection as well.

Thread Ms. Marvel Drops Major MCU Reveal in Finale Episode (Spoilers)(MAJOR Spoilers)
For all those who thought they were going to use the multiverse to introduce the X-Men. Told ya so! Also having a latent X-Gene that gets activated by an item or an accident is a thing in the comics. Her being the first mutant we see doesn't not preclude that mutants already exist. I'll repeat what I've said before. "Why didn't they help during the Avengers movie?" The actual Battle of New York was short maybe 4 hours. Assuming that the X-Mansion was there, Westchester is to far out to actually help. "Why didn't they help during Infinity War?" The 2nd battle of New York was even shorter. Doctor Strange was kidnapped and the ships left. 30 minutes tops. The Battle of Wakanda was isolated, no regular person on earth actually knew it was happening. Even if Charles knew he was 4-8 hours out with his X-Men. "Why didn't they help during Endgame?" Ignoring that Thanos cheated and both set up his fall, and remove anyone who could hurt him. But then, who says they didn't help? We follow a very specific story in Endgame, one that doesn't show anyone but the Avengers. For all we know the X-Men have been helping just in the background. Like the Ancient One. She was taking down the Chitariu, maybe the X-Men were too. When Spider-Man first appeared in Civil War, I actually thought it was a misstep to not make him saving people in the Avengers movie, let's hope the X-Men have a better origion And don't make it about the Infinity Stones "releasing gamma radiation"

I actually own the trade where Rogue and at the time Ms. Marvel teamed up against a alternate version of Carol named "Warbird" (which she did use in the comics, and was always stupid) was traveling from alternate reality to alternate reality killing Rogues. And then killing Carols as well since in nearly every reality Carol Danvers does actually forgive her. For a long time she still hates her, but she forgives her. It's a good story actually. Brian Reed did a good job with it. Fair. I actually forgot about that. But I'd still consider Minevera or Moonstone more her actual archenemy based on what they have done.

Proving perjury is even more difficult than proving defecation. She only has to say: I misremembered. I was feeling emotional and attacked. At the time I thought it was true. You literally need evidence of the person saying "I'm totally going to lie" to prove it. It's not worth the time or resources so it's rarely pursued.

Thread Sean Duran asked me to film a scene for his OF
I mean... It depends. Some porn shoots are definitely just work. Usually a big studio job (with some exceptions) is just work. Lots of cuts, hours between shoots,etc. Other ones are a bit more free-form and more like RP sex that some one happens to be filming. Onlyfans content is usually just "Hey I'm filming let's fuck." because that's the allure. Honestly the porn industry has changed alot since the 80s to the 2010s and even more from the 2010s to the 2020s. There are even big studios now that are all about "just have fun and we will film it" which used to just be the realm of the indies. Having said all that. If you decide to do porn/sex work always research who you are working with. Always get paid well and upfront. Always express your limits and don't allow them to be broken. And never work for "exposure"

Thread Johnny Depp v Amber Heard's defamation trial is underway
The real problem is that people do not know what the difference between civil and criminal trials are. Johnny Depp wasn't found guilty of anything. In the UK case it wasn't proven that Johnny did anything. Just that it was likely that the tabloid actually believed it. If he loses this one he isn't guilty of anything. He just didnt meet critiera of Actual Malice and Defemation. Just like if he wins it doesn't prove that Amber Herd is guilty of abuse. Those that is thst she likely lied, knowing it would hurt him in the public eye. Civil trials are about disputes, not proving criminality. Another example I can think of is that OJ Simpson was found not guilty of murdering his ex wife. But was found liable in a wrongful dead lawsuit.

And even there are a lot more steps before you even get to Anubis. Thoth needs you to recite the names of the ancestors of Ma'at while you list the sins you didn't commit. This let's you prove you know who your judges are. Then Anubis weights your heart against the weight of Ma'at (a feather) If Ma'at is heavier then Ammit devours your soul. She has no role until AFTER you've been judged. Probably why she was banished is was she was going against her role.

The Final cut of the movie wants you to think about what is human, but it cut out so many other things that you're not sure what it's trying to say.

Honestly, X-Force Annual is probably the first time in a while I didn't entirely disagree with Beast. The only thing I think you should have done different is he should have told them it was a trap.

Thread Tennessee republicans propose bill to ELIMINATE the age requirements for marriage. (Also an anti lgbtq marriage bill)
I don't disagree with you. The anti-LGBT+ is the point. But the bill actually only effects common law marriage which doesn't require a state issues marriage license. It's almost a protest law in a way. Almost like saying "We don't need no state license to say we're married. God married us and we live together that's it!" That's why to me, even as queer person myself, am more looking at the idea of underage common law marriage suddenly being perfectly legal. There are some really extreme examples I thought of how this could be abused and its sickening.

Honestly with how he acts now what he was really upset about was that he wasn't tapped to run it. But the truth of the matter is he felt betrayed because Scott didn't tell him and supposedly they are best friends. it hurt him that he wasn't told

Thread Remember the time Wolverine insulted MJ so Spider-Man threw him out a window?
That's not the X-Mansion. That's the hero base in the original Secret Wars. And it was just because he could. It's because he overheard that the X-Men were leaving there side and joining with Magneto. He was on his way to tell the other Heroes when the X-Men attacked him to try and stop him.
