What do you think guys? Do you think Jim Sturgess could have pulled off a good young Professor X in the X-Men films?

10 dollars but I just get free hair cuts now. Just go in get it cut then say you forgot your wallet and leave. Next time you go in they won't remember you or go to a different spot and do it.

Wow dude, isn't that kind of... theft?

Now personally I usually visit SportsClips or some other mediocre barber shop to get a haircut, but I live by this British hair salon. It's run by British people, and the interior is so nice. They usually have like music from the UK playing in the background, and Beatles posters here and there. So that's why I decided to go give it a try.

All I wanted was a simple trim, and I got charged like $35! Plus you pretty much have to give a tip, so I spent like $40 (last time I payed like $30, it was more this time for some reason)!

I'd say the place is a mini-tourist attraction at best, a good one I might add. But definitely not worth the price (if I was rich, I would go there regularly, but I simply am not).

So on a rate from 1-10, how much does your life suck?

1 being that you should be on suicide watch, 10 being you are always optimistic and your life rocks.

Mine is about 7.

EDIT: 1 being you are always optimistic and your life rocks, 10 being you should be on suicide watch.

Also doesn't anyone think it sucks that Bucky in Winter Soldier wasn't a Soviet troop?
You do see a glimpse of what appears to be a Red Army soldier in one of his flashbacks, but I guess it was just another easter eggs for the fans (and history buffs for that matter).

Also, considering Nick Fury's faked death at the end of the Winter Soldier film, and the hole focus on the "infiltration" thing, I think they are remaking the Secret Invasion arc, but with HYDRA in the place of the Skrulls.

@purplecandy: I love to see that happens as much anyone, but the hard fact is that studios will be studios. 20 Century Fox and Sony will try their asses off to keep the rights. A crossover is very unlikely. The days of Roger Rabbit are gone sadly. It is nice to think like a fan but, we sometimes have to see things from their prospective.

True. I guess the division between the Fox and Sony movie universes is what makes them unique anyway, it gives them a chance to be different.

Nice suggestions, but it's safe to say that like most fans, I would like to see the Avengers Movie Universe crossover with the X-Men movie universe.

I'm pretty sure all the fans want to see it, and if they cross-over it will mean big bucks for both of the studios.

And it turns out that 20th Century Fox has the word "mutant" copyrighted, what kind of sh*t is that?

They are really letting the fans down with this. People copyright things so they can earn money when someone steals their content right? Well if the X-Men and Avengers movie universes crossed paths (I think it would be stupid to have a complete crossover with both groups, but maybe an easter egg or cameo of individual characters) then it would please the fans thus more profit for the Marvel film industries.

Im sure Captain America most definitely votes Republican.

I doubt it. There's far more parties (minor and major) than the Democrats and GOP.

Captain America is a Christian (despite the fact he has met many God-like entities) , or at least holds onto Christian values. But in none of the comics (as far as I know) does he fight for Christianity or imposes his conservative views on anybody. He fights for freedom.

I'm not trying to start a debate but the Democrats and Republicans are both (arguably and by definition) authoritarian in there own ways, so he wouldn't vote for them. Isn't Cap more of a non-interventionist type (unless it's against one of the evil conqueror types)?

I think Captain America would vote Libertarian.

Again, writers try to keep political views outside of the comics, so as not to loose fans, and come off as neutral.

@farkam:

Because the one in general section wasn't getting any replies

What would you say the general political views of comic book characters are?

Wolverine = Libertarian. Ruggedly Individualistic (esp. before joining the X-Men), mistrustful of the government.

Captain America = Paleoconservative and libertarian (he never uses neocon rhetoric)

Batman = Has conservative and liberal attributes in some ways (doesn't use guns, doesn't kill enemies, tries to find the good side in his villains, has philanthropic tendencies as Bruce Wayne). But he wouldn't vote for the Democrats, he'd probably have the knowledge to find out how corrupt mainstream politicians are.

Superman = Paleoconservative and Libertarian

That's all for now
