    Oh man. I was wondering what was up when I saw how rough he was looking at San Diego Comic Con. At first I figured that he was just getting on in years, but he's definitely not that old. I certainly ...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Reasons Why GoTG is better than The Avengers. on the Off-Topic board

    Actually the first hour or so of Guardians has a lot of structural problems. It's just a series of contrivances and location-hopping to get the characters together and get through the necessary exposi...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Watch the First Full 'Jurassic World' Trailer. on the Gen. Discussion board

    As long as the new mega-dino doesn't have tentacles or multiple mouths and looks like an actual dinosaur, I'm on board. It's the next logical step for the series really. The underside of the Jurassic...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic (input wanted) crafting a comic. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I think doing as you described it is probably the best way to handle it. Make it as naturalistic as possible. I would say let it be an element of the book and an open one but perhaps not the constant...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Why hasn't Marvel tried to bring back NEXTwave?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    NEXTwave is brilliant but with iffy sales under Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen, its almost sure to tank with a less talented team. Besides, despite featuring continuity Marvel characters, the book w...

    Terry McGinnis all the way. Unlike all the others, he's not a longtime apprentice. The job wasn't handed down to him as a matter of inheritance. His Batman was born the only way a true Batman can be-...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic The No Kill Rule (i am ranting a little). on the Gen. Discussion board

    Actually, on a psychological level, killing is very difficult. It goes very much against human hard-wiring. Around the time of the Vietnam War there was a fairly big shake-up in how soldiers were tra...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Question of the Week RESULTS: Favorite Batman Artist. on the Batman board

    While I voted for Lee, I'm actually quite pleased at how close Capullo was. Often it seems in comics that we think the best days of our medium are behind us, that the masterworks have already been ma...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Movies VOTING: Batman Begins vs. The Dark Knight Rises. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Batman Begins by a country mile. Not that I didn't like the Dark Knight Rises. Even including the much lauded Dark Knight, Batman Begins is my favorite of the trilogy. I'm not saying that it's necess...

    The first article I don't necessarily disagree with (at least not completely) but it does very much rub me the wrong way. I'm always a bit perturbed when someone tries to chastise fellow enthusiasts f...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic What could truly make Batman snap?. on the Batman board

    I'm not entirely clear what is meant by "snap" in this situation. I'm going to go ahead assume it doesn't mean the trite get-him-to-kill-someone thing because it's been talked to death with no terrib...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Who's Fanbase is worse DC or Marvel?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I don't know that they're distinct and isolated enough communities at this point to be in true direct conflict and to be able to be contrasted in a way that can be readily evaluated. The increased fo...

    I voted Black Widow but I'm going to add an addendum here. I've been opining since The Avengers that they should do a movie with Black Widow and Hawkeye in the vein of Mission Impossible. I don't kno...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Why Diversity in Comics is Much More Important Than You Think. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Yeah, diversity is good. What do you want to do about it? They always need to give us more diverse characters, but who is "they?" Well, "they" are writers and when you talk about them as a collective...

    I'd like to see Mark Waid's take on the Punisher. I can't say that I have any idea at all what it would be like but it would certainly be interesting to see Waid step into Frank Castle's grim and noi...

    I'm noticing the conspicuous absence of The Dark Knight Returns on that list. I don't know if that's because you've already read it, but if you haven't its an absolute must for any and all Batman fan...
