Hey felllow comicviners,

I have been looking into creating a site for daily comic book battles, which I would give scores for participation to users who sign up, and integrate into social media so you see the battle of the day on your facebook wall, etc. for a while now.

Due to several logistics issues of what I want to do, phase 1 of the site will be creating the internet comic fight database, which will keep track of which issues certain characters fight in, so if you wanted to see Hulk vs Thor for example, you could find the issues. I can use Comicvine's wonderful API in order to pull all the issues, but in order to make this work, I will the need support of users (dedicated comic fans) to actually add the fights to the site.

So basically what I am trying to find out is to gauge if anybody is interested and if anybody would seriously be able to help add content, and likes my idea before I start working on it. As I said, I do not have time to add many fights myself and build and maintain the site so it would be up to the users to make anything out of it.

Well we know she can fight a little bit, but she clearly isn't ready for the prime-time either. She's had what, 4 or 5 sessions with Wildcat?

But hopefully she stops being the sorry waste of screen time she has been though. At least her costume looks pretty cool!

It's weird having a woman being Thor to be honest... but I've definitely enjoyed Aaron's run to date, and the first two issues of the female Thor have also been great. Shouldn't it be Thorena, or Thora?

When I was reading the second issue, I had a very strong feeling that the new Thor was Jane Foster or Sif, mostly by her knowledge of the Asgardians and Earth, although neither character necessarily knows Darrio Agger

A well done Wonder Woman video game could be great advertising for the movie too...

One thing that I can think of that WW would bring to a video game is training modes. She trains with fellow Amazons, so side missions and training missions would be cool!. Then she can fight bosses in cities or fight Hades in hell, or the First Born in Olympus... lots they can do with her storyline and also with the toys she has available like the invisible jet, lasso of truth, etc.

Now, they very well may make a video game to follow the movie, but video games based off of movies are always downright awful! The only exception I can think of was Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64 and that was how many years ago?

Who wins? It depends if Batman has kryptonite or not really...

I'm glad they're doing a Wonder Woman movie and a Shazam movie. I have always felt that if done right, Captain Marvel could be a huge success on the big screen.

Also, I'm glad Green Lantern is getting a reboot. They could easily make Sinestro be the Loki of the DC universe if done right...

It's possible that they're probably cancelling FF, killing them off so they can make a big return and try to give sales a boost too. Or maybe they're planning a huge reboot.

I'd bet they're planning some sort of a reboot/fresh look for when the movie arrives myself...

Overall, I would call this fight a draw. But the given that they are only 30 feet apart, and that there's cover, the conditions favor Elektra as she's the superior melee combatant. I would say Elektra takes 6/10 here. If it was the desert, I'd say the opposite.

The current creative teams final issue is 36 and it will be one sad day when that issue comes out.

That's only four more issues.... sad to think about it. I think Wonder Woman has been DC's best series going currently and in a very long time, and quite possibly the best comic going currently. It's so good...

For those who haven't read it, it's one of those series that reads even better in trade form... go pick it up.

Jesus was nailed to a cross... Thor carries a hammer. Any questions?
