Yeah I totally feel what a lot of you are saying and while I too have never really been all that interested in this show before I gotta admit that, that preview to season 5 looks pretty awesome, 'll especially be on the lookout for that episode where you have Sidious versus Maul and Opress. That being said I think if Lucasfilm really wanted to capitilize on the Star Wars franchise they need to tap into the Legacy era with Luke's descendent Cade Skywalker. The first couple of seasons could be based on the story as told in the Star Wars: Legacy comics after that they'll have free range to tell whatever stories they like without having to worry so much about keeping it in line with Star Wars canon as is the problem with Clone Wars.

Well said G-Man, I know I've been feeling this way for a very long time. I was just getting into comics when DC versus Marvel was hitting stores. The thought of these two powerhouses coming together had me hooked, even despite the fact that looking back on it some of the outcomes to the battles didn't make a lick of sense (i.e Wolverine vs. Lobo with Wolverine winning) but at the time it was just so cool seeing these former "What if?" type matches finally taking place you just didn't care, and then as you mentioned something amazing happened and we got Amalgam right in the midst of it.

Since then several things have happened that I think would make DC vs. Marvel even more awesome today like...

1. The expansion of the internet. If you'll recall some of the outcomes in DC vs. Marvel were decided by fan voting in which you had to mail in to either of the publishers. If they got together and did something like this again fan voting over the internet via a Facebook page lets say could make the outcomes evern more interesting. (as long as the characters are evenly matched that is)

2. The creation of Ultimate Marvel.

3. The re-establishment of the DC multiverse.

4. The creation of the New 52.

I know many won't agree with me on the last one but I mention it as being a key component to re-establishing the Amalgam universe.

people you cant put a comic book onscreen it will look dumb you have make it relateable

Jeez I know. You can't please some people. If the producers try to alter details to make the show accessible to people who don't read comics (a.k.a. the vast majority of people!), people whine that it's not close enough to the comic. If the show is a clone of the comic, you end up with a crap show and the same people will complain "it's not relatable enough" after it's cancelled.

Get a grip, people. Give me one reason why is Dinah Lance, florist more acceptable than Laurel Lance, lawyer other than the first appears in the comic.

But "WE" as in those of us who frequently visit this site aren't the vast majority of people. If you regularly visit a site called "ComicVine" then you likely read COMICS and when a tv show or movie comes out based on the characters you love from said medium you tend to want them to stay as true to their origins as possible, now I agree with you a few minor tweaks like changing her from a florist to a lawyer is just fine in my book, it's just the things like not using her real name (Dinah) is what gets my goat, and if we continue to just "accept" changes to things like character's names and origin stories then you just lose the essence of the characters all together and the show becomes this very loosely based thing that's only recognizable by a few names and locations.

I really don't like when they release only a few episodes of a program on DVD as oppose to releasing the entire season but I'm really considering getting this. Especially since I've been on a major Star Wars high since July. Though it does suck knowing the outcome already. lol

it's really hard for MMO's to have high end graphics....so if that's what you're after then mmo's aren't for you

I agree with you to an extent. I mean I hate to sound like another DCUO fanboy (though I do play the game) but it has great graphics for an MMO on both the PC and PS3 versions. I mean we have computers that come with stock graphics cards that put those of a PS2 or original XBox to shame so I don't think it's too much to ask for higher standards in graphics even for an MMO.

And to those ascribing to the notion that it's somehow "better" to only be able to play as your favorite hero or villian as oppose to one you thought of yourself, you really must have no imagination. As much as I like all of the Marvel characters set to appear in this game I'd much prefer to play as a character "inspired by" them fighting along side them with other original characters in that same vien than a dozen Wolverines, or Caps or Iron Man's etc. All the variant costumes in the Marvel Universe will never match the uniqueness you feel when playing as character whom you've named and dressed to your own specifications.

Let me just say I came into this movie expecting to be disappointed and boy was I ever so glad to be proven wrong. I mean I don't even know where to begin... I guess I'll start with this, Marion Cottilard (sorry if I mispelled her last name) was perfect casting for the role of Talia and boy was I shocked when she revealed herself. All the while when they where talking about "the child of Ra's al Ghul" I was thinking "I know they didn't go off the reservation and make Bane Ra's son!?" but when she revealed herself I was thinking to myself "I KNEW IT!" yet I was still shocked (probably because I didn't even know they had cast her in this film to begin with. However as is the case in the comics, cartoons, video games, etc. her motivations seemed strange to me. I mean she talked about how she despised Ra's for how he treated Bane but still wanted to honor him by completing his mission to destroy Gotham?

Secondly, in the scene where the woman tells Blake how he should go by his real name I thought it would've been so awesome if they would have done it like this "You should go by your real name... Mr. Grayson." I mean when she called him Robin, I was like "So is that his real first name or real last name?" and it just generally felt cheesy to me, I mean other than the singer Robin Thicke I honestly don't know any guys whose first name is Robin.The question I pose to you all here in the Comic Vine community, would you support Joseph Gordon Levitt as Blake/Batman for a potential JLA movie? I know I would.

Last, I love how Nolan wrapped up "his" take on Batman by basically saying that in my world Bruce Wayne knows when to hang up the cowl and past the mantle on. He (Nolan) didn't think to highly of himself to believe he could or should be the director to kill Bruce Wayne he simply retired him, but not necessarily Batman and I was totally okay with that.

Wait, I know The Old Republic is only on PC but can you not use a PC controller to play the game? I mean I was honestly thinking about buying a PC strictly for gaming purposes so I could play this game but only if I could also use a PC controller (like a Madcatz or something) if not then no thanks, I'll just stick with DCUO on my PS3.

I agree it is good to see Mr. Jones and it does seem like we haven't seen him in awhile. I am totally sure Black Dynamite is going to be great! I like what he said about how he would like to play a Bond type villain in a movie even though most of his roles are comedic in nature I could totally see him pulling it off.

Glad to see Hasbro hasn't completely abandoned Marvel Universe figures in favor of Marvel Legends, and as always they look awesome!

SMDH, it's sad that the writer of this series takes the time out to give you numbskulls an explanation as to what's going on in this book and still all you guys notice is tits and ass, what's worse some of you actually have the nerve to make sarcastic comments about it as though 99% of most mainstream comics headlined by a female character don't go the extra mile to highlight her lady parts. Everybody's entitled to their own opinion but if some of you took the time out to actually read any of the Executive Assistant titles you'd see how much depth these characters have and how the books are more about kick ass ladies on par with Jason Bourne and less about their T&A;.
