• JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Does Barbie have a negative influence on women?. on the Off-Topic board

    I liked Barbie as a kid. Although I did end up mutilating them when I outgrew Barbie (it was quite shocking to later find out that a lot of girls do this too). Looking back, I have no shame that I pla...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Why do Adults talk so much trash about Teenagers?. on the Off-Topic board

    @wolverine08: No. If you would reread both my posts, I said my current job makes me believe that maybe it was a demographic problem because the kids I work with at my job are good kids from private s...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Why the Dark Age is better than the Silver Age. on the Gen. Discussion board

    For me, I prefer the Dark Age although the stuff I loved most were sort of an antithesis to that era such as the Robin comics and Flash comics. My problem with the Silver Age is mostly the writing, sp...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Why do Adults talk so much trash about Teenagers?. on the Off-Topic board

    Same reason teens do it all the time when it comes to adults. And my student teaching experience taught me that teens today are shameless and don't mind even doing it to your face. Ever since the Baby...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Why do Adults talk so much trash about Teenagers?. on the Off-Topic board

    @wolverine08: Whatever, I'll use the word "seems" or "feels" if it'll make you feel better. Still doesn't change my view of teens today, my own personal experiences have given me enough reasons not to...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Least favourite era in comics?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    For the most part, I only read comics from the 1980s onwards when it comes to DC and I only read stuff from the 2000s onwards when it comes to Marvel. I'd say I dislike the 1950s and 1960s the most be...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Would you be okay with a Superhero movie done in parts?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    @feartheliving: If the filler is removed, one could probably decrease the length of the movie so that it didn't have to be split in two. It would have to be a very good story that could only be told ...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Was Tim Drake a better Robin then Dick Grayson?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Functionally, I think Dick did a better job as a sidekick to Batman and leader of Teen Titans, but I think Tim was a better solo, independent Robin. Though to be fair, Tim's inability to be a great si...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic If you could make a change to any comic book. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I'd make it that if Superman is powered by the yellow sun, whenever the sun goes down, he loses his powers temporarily or at least become weakened by the lack of sun.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Would you be okay with a Superhero movie done in parts?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I'd rather just sit through a 3 hour movie than split it into two, I hate "to be continued" concepts that is why I don't read monthly comics but TPBs instead. Also, I'd rather use the other movie to e...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Better black superheroes - DC or Marvel?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I feel like Marvel has a better variety of black heroes with a wider range of abilities. I also think they make better use out of their characters. Maybe its because Marvel is so team focused that man...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Winter soldier/anti terrorism guns ships a good idea ?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    We live in a world where we can't trust the supposed "good guys" we have now, ie: politicians, police, or the justice system, so what makes you think we can trust someone with that kind of weaponry an...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Can reading comics relieve stress?. on the Off-Topic board

    That is the whole point of a hobby and reading comics is a hobby.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Any Hero/Villain(s) that you feel are just too overpowered?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I don't think there are overpowered characters, just poorly written or inconsistently written characters.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic How has my taste in Media Changed?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I mostly go through cycles where I will watch a show to the point that I tire of it, take a break for a few months or years and then watch it again. I have found that I've become more interested in wa...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Do you consider yourself an intellectual?. on the Off-Topic board

    I don't know if intellectual is the word I'd use, I'm more of a know-it-all and a book smart person surrounded by street smart people which causes great conflict at work.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Where's a good place to start with Captain America comics?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I began with Mark Waid's Man out of Time because its an updated origin of Captain America waking up in the 21st Century (and as an offshoot, I'd check out Joe Casey's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroe...

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic Where's a good place to start with Captain America comics?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    @maccyd: I wanted to read some Avengers and looked for a Best stories list and it was on there and I found that Marvel had released a tpb of both that and the sequel story.

  • JulieDC posted a message in the forum topic How much Spidey Comics have you read?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Probably less than 5% of everything ever written about him in comics. I only own 6 books (2 of which he teams with the FF) about Spiderman and outside of that have only read 2 JMS books from the libra...

    This kind of stuff has honestly got me terrified of cops. Just today, I was grabbing something out of the trunk of a cab and a police car pulls in nearby. At first I think he is going to give me or th...
