@oldnightcrawler: You just quoted my post.... No comment. Weird.

sorry, my comment to Vitalius was directed to both of you.

@oldnightcrawler: If there was version that some characther could make contructs, why he or she would need to wear bow and quiver with arrows. I dont see why she needs to wear the shield, that all.

and I'm saying because she's Captain America, and that's Captain America's thing.

unless she throws it as an offensive weapon, like every other Captain America.

We were talking about how she can use it as a shield. Not a frisbee.

@vitalius said:

@oldnightcrawler: Again she cold use any ranged weapon and still would look better.

I know everyone likes the Cap' with the gun, but arguing that it's doesn't make sense for Captain America to have a shield is like arguing that it doesn't make sense for Hawkeye to use a bow and arrows. You might be technically right, but still, really?

@oldnightcrawler: So a future was destroyed so since it was destroyed how can be a future that the Avengers can time travel too? You can't go to a place that doesn't exist.

they must have traveled to it before it was destroyed, that's all.

if it never existed, it couldn't have been destroyed, so that it was destroyed means that it must have, and they traveled to it before it was.

How long has this been going on and why isn't it affected by Battlworld and such? Isn't fighting Doom or Ultron in the future impossible since the futures have been destroyed by the incursions?

this must be one of the futures that was destroyed then, that's all.

@rocketraccoonthingy: She is the daughter of Luke Cage (from the future). The stupid part is that her skin is also very durable which makes her shield pretty useless for her.

unless she throws it as an offensive weapon, like every other Captain America.

Wait,this was the Squadron Supreme,right. So Hyperion is a bad guy,or was he always?

Squadron Supreme (from 1985, aka, the original Kingdom Come) was a story based on the idea that The Squadron Sinister (from 1969) were heroes in a parallel dimension.

So, this Hyperion (the original? if the term applies here) was always a villain.

I hate her new costume

That's Porcupine's costume; she's just wearing it because she's under-cover as him.

saying hi?

seems pretty innocuous to me.

Hey, do me a favor, go up to some random stranger, sneak up really close, like within one foot of them when they're not looking and wait till they turn around and face you and then "just say hi." Extra points if you do it in a mask. Tell me if that's actually "saying hi."

the mask thing's a fair point. But I still maintain that that's only harassment in the very broadest sense. And it's not in the preview that she sneaks up on them, only that they don't notice her approach.

I'm just saying it's a bit of an assumption that she's there to confront them because they're doing graffiti; kids could be breaking into a construction site after dark for all kinds of reasons, none of which are legal or (as we do see) especially safe. Obviously startling them turned out not to be the best way to check their safety, but there's nothing here to imply that she's there because they're doing graffiti (or even that she meant to startle them, really).

does she? she doesn't in this preview.

Sure she does, they're just minding their own business, and she sneaks up on them and freaks them out. That's pretty harassy to me.

Great series and I hope the title will last AFTER the movie got out also...I hate to know that they made it only as a promotion for the movie..Ant Man deserves better!!

I kind of agree, but from one way of looking at it, Marvel must agree too. The fact that he's getting his own movie increases how popular he has a chance of being, so in a way the movie (and even the ads for the movie) are kind of promotion for him getting his own comic.

Obviously the movie will make them more money, but they must realize that the movies' strengths are largely drawn from having a wealth of source material. Really both the movies and the comics (as well as the cartoons, tv shows, etc) are promotion for the other.

And considering that Ant-man hasn't ever had his own cartoon or tv show to make him more well known outside of comics (as Cap', Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-man, the X-men, and the FF have), I just think it's great he's finally getting some mainstream attention.

That the movies are more popular than the comics isn't a bad thing; more people like movies than read comics is all. But Ant-man is a great character, and I agree that he deserves to be in good stories -regardless of what medium those stories are told in.
